The beer pours a cloudy hay colored yellow. The ecru head quickly dissipates to a thin collar that leaves great lacing. The scent is somewhat subdued with difficult to identify fruity notes and the anticipated barnyard funk that gives the impression of decomposing grass in a very pleasant manner. Hint of lemon and leather too.

The taste begins with a general fruity complexity that leans towards pears. Midway the yeasty phenolics and black pepper round out the flavor. Nice crisp and dry finish with a moderate level of carbonation. I'd like to age a few bottles to see how the brettanomyces continues to develop. I feel the additional aging would help create more depth and complexity. Nonetheless, very enjoyable.

12.68 oz/375mL bottle purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $6.59. This is the first Logsdon bottle I’ve ever laid eyes on, let alone purchase. According to the label, this bottle is good until November, 2019, and is bottle # 12384.

Poured into an Iron Goat snifter, this was an opaque, apricot color, with lots of tiny bubbles hurtling skyward and a number of little funky floaties wandering about. There was a good-sized, white head that hung around for a long while, then slowly left sheets of lace on the sides of the glass as it receded.

The aroma was dry and fruity, reminding me more of a Tripel than a saison. Pears and melons in the aroma, along with some earthy wheat notes and some mild coriander.

More funk in the taste than in the nose. It starts off a little bit bitter and lemony sour taste and some, then fades out with a dry pear taste. Some “Belgiany” coriander notes are in the background throughout

Slightly creamy yet crisp mouthfeel for something 8%. It doesn’t quite have the effervescent mouthfeel I tend to associate with Belgian beers, but it’s a lot closer to it than some other American Belgians I’ve had.

An interesting and tasty beer, in that order. I would drink this again, but not more than a single bottle on any occaision. It’s just not the kind of beer I would like to session. Damn glad it finally showed up around here, though!

Not much brett, but a dry crisp finish with some wheat and spice flavors. Lemon as well.

This was a fantastic brew to enjoy after a 62 mile bicycle ride on my birthday in 2014. Hats off to my buddy, Jeff, for sharing with me! Great friends, great times, great beer!

I really enjoyed this beer, and I did not expect to. The initial aroma was that of a sour, but the taste was anything but! The flavors were of sweet malt and some hops; no unpleasant sourness to be discerned, which was in direct contrast with the nose. Wonderful mouthfeel and medium body with no indication of its 8% ABV made this go down quick and easy. It's a delicious and very interesting and complex brew, but such an easy and pleasant drink that I was extremely pleased with giving the style a shot. Will have again.

A - Slight bottle gusher. Murky peach, orange with a few chunks floating. Big rocky white head.

S - Could smell the funk across the room at first but that slowly dissipated. Slightly lambic like in aroma. Pear, lemon, wet hay, funk, peach, white grape, citrus.

T - White grape, green apple, peach, pear with a weird light chalky brett funk. Slightly musty. Light pepper notes.

M - Lively and very dry. Left almost a chalky feel in the mouth.

D - Seemed to get better with each sip. Might have drank this too fast.
