Deep gold capped with a tall off-white head that quickly settles to a low, lumpy covering. Big time flower and wood funk in the nose. Dusty cellar, hay, berries, earth, light citrus, and a general spicy sharpness. Taste goes in a more fruity-funk direction starting off tart with a building sweetness being cutoff by a nice acidity and dry finish. Definitely more of a tart, juicy Brett character with this Saison. Flower petals, white wine, and peach pits...not as old and funky-feeling as the smell. Crisp and dry which helps conceal the strength. One of the more interesting Saisons I've had, I think.

Initially large creamy peach colored head made of tight foam bubbles over golden orange beer. Aroma pours in loads of fruit, wild floral, tart funky, and sunny dandelions. Really fun to smell.... Berries, apples, mango, colorful flowers, sweet orange, spice and pleasant but unusual tropical stink. Taste passes through an array of experiences. Miscellaneous fleshy fruits, dry, smacky, tart, citrus rind-like bitter, flowery and farmy. Carbonation is very fine and evenly disbursed. Juicy, bubbly, slick texture with an easy drinking medium body. Goes down very smooth even with the tart bitterness. There's enough fruit and sunny flowers to balance all that out.

Pours hazy golden color with nice 2 finger head that is pillowy and beautiful.nose is lemony, Belgian yeast, little bit of grassy funk. Taste closely follows nose IMO. Very refreshing, clean lemony tang. Yeast is upfront as would be expected and the grassy funk from the nose holds on the finish/aftertaste. Not tons of carbonation, but the correct amount. Finishes dry and long. Overall I love this beer, the Brett doesn't outshine the well brewed saison base.

Poured into a Side Project Brewing Co. long stemmed tulip from a 750ml bottle.

Bottle No. 58812
Best by: 02/2019

Pours a beautiful hazy light orange color with some nice golden honey hues on the edges. There is a nice 1 inch white-to-off-white head that is dense and has great retention. A gorgeous looking beer.

Aroma is bready and grainy with nice fruit juice notes. Nice funky brett notes of dried wood, cedar, barnyard and slight tartness.

Flavor starts off with nice notes of fruit juice. Notes of pear and apple juice. Nice grainy sweetness that is enveloped by an awesome Brett funk and some good spice. Slight tartness is present with a nice fluffy carbonated body. Mild lemony notes mixed with bread and some oak as well. Solid saison.

Reddish-orange with a full, off-white head that very slowly pops itself away.

Smells estery with the yeast up front followed by green apple, orange and lemon zest. Spice floats by at the edge right before the brett aroma comes in.

Taste is a wonderful with a disarray of fruit, lemon zest and spice. Tart at the end with a wrapping of rind. Distinct. Flavorful. Fulfilling.

Nicely carbonated with a medium body, but a bit chalky. Crisp all the way down with a hint of alcohol.

The perfect mix of flavor and drinkability for the big beer summer club, of which I am an honorary member.


Blind / updated rating 10.23.15

**Thought this was my first beer from Logsdon, but I've actually had this one before, which I only noticed after I re-rated it.**

Crowned with a towering, never say die dense white froth, this bright golden-orange brew's presentation is about as good as it gets.

Aroma is impressive and complex with a perfect melange of spice, grain, damp earth, ripened orange and green apple.

Creamier than expected with a light to medium body filled with more light fruits, a touch of spice, a drop of vanilla, pie crust and wet straw.

Absolutely fabulous my dear!

A: 4.5 Hazy, orange/gold. Pours a fairly large off-white head that dissipates rather fast. Good lacing.

S: 4.75 Strong smell that’s really nice. Lots of green apple. Smells tart and a little funky. Also grapes and even a little oaky aroma present. Some Belgian yeast in the background giving the usual ester spice and fruitiness.

T: 4.5 Sweet malt up front followed quickly by Belgian yeast. Fruity ester and a bit of banana with the yeast. There’s also a lingering tartness in the background adding in the green apple from the nose. Ends with just a little bit of bitterness along with some bread and clove. Not as much funk as was on the nose.

M: 4.5 Great overall, especially for the style. It coats the palate without being too thick. A bit dry at the end that makes you want more. Drinking it while it’s fairly cold out, but I could definitely see this a perfect summer brew.

O: 4.75 I really love this saison. I usually like the style and don’t seek them out too often, but this one is really special. The flavors flow and develop beautifully on the palate and each sip is very interesting and you find something new.

A: Beautiful golden honey color. Small one finger white head.

S: I got a ton of lemon and orange citrus aromas, a very sweet funk smell, not overwhelming at all very pleasant.

T: Wow did I enjoy this. A nice lemon tartness up front almost immediately followed by that very pleasant brett funk flavor, its in your face but at the same time its not. On the back end you get a lot more of that citrus flavor with a nice malt backbone.

MF: Very crisp and sharp with a nice dry finish. Extremely smooth.

O: This is up there with some of the best saisons and being a true farmhouse ale I am thoroughly impressed by this beer. Citrus and funk with a smooth crisp finish. I will buy this again.

I purchased this at whole foods in Fremont, enjoyed chilled in a tulip.

The color is golden with light haze and thick three finger white head with visible carbonation and lots of lace. The smell is great -tons of tropical fruit light pineapple and subtle funk with mild herbal acommpaniement with slight grainy floral and citrus juicy aroma. The feel is excellent with lots of bretty texture and medium carbonation with slight herbal and spiced quality mild alcohol and nice dry finish.

The flavor is very good with great brett which is tropical and fruity bringing a juicy and earthy flavor with light spice and citrus tanginess almost grapefruity with mild zest and light hint of pepper in the very dry finish with a mild hop and alcohol taste. Overall I really enjoyed this, I was wishing I could have gotten more, the brett character is excellent and this is perhaps one of the best bretted saisons I have had recently. I recommend this highly.

After uncapping, foam started oozing from the bottle, but at a controllable rate; pours into a frizzy snow-white head that soon settles down. Brew is hazy and golden, nearly opaque. Head retention is fantastic. Fair amount of small particles cling to the glass. Very slight lines of lacing.

Citrus, funk, and surprisingly sweet on the aroma. Slightly sharp and tart, with hints of straw, wheat, banana, lemon, berries, and only a bit of funk.

Sharp, funky taste: Brett right up front, followed smoothly by sweet and clean citrus notes. Big body of wheat and pale malts. Delicate and well-balanced.

Slightly sharp on the tongue, very smooth in the mouth; long semi-dry finish. Begs for another sip.

This is a funky American Saison that is worth the hype. I think this is truly one of the best Saisons I have ever tasted. Complex and funky, but sublimely smooth and eminently drinkable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

The liquid itself is par for the course...a pale orange/nectarine color with tiny, tiny little floaties in it. However, the head is pretty spectacular. Bright, brilliant white, meringue-like shape. Starts off a finger and a half thick with above average retention. The thinnest of spotty lacing.

Really, an amazing smell with the Brett yeast doing what it does best...providing an unequaled combo of funky, dank fruit and spicy yeast. With Brett, you don't need much more.

Very complex taste profile with too many fruits to count, all blended nicely with just a slight bit of spice for balance.

Unlike a lot of other saisons, this beer doesn't shock your palate with an ending of spice that's too spicy. It starts off sweet, acidic and fruity and then transitions to just enough spice to take the edge off. This is what separates this beer from others...there's just enough spice to transition from sweet to spicy. It never does what most saisons do and bring far too much spicy heat to the party. Light- to medium-bodied. The highish ABV is not noticeable.

This is a really good beer that's extremely easy to drink. The Brett is amazing, as usual. Most of the time I don't care for beers that are subtle, but this is one exception.

750 ml poured into a SN tulip.

A: Medium carbonation and very clear. Pale yellow with a thin slight off white head that looks like it will lace nicely.

S: A very spicy, earthy nose with slight boozie sweetness. Very spicy hops in the aroma dominate.

T: Ok, this is where things got interesting. Huge Brett character that mingle very well with the nose but strangely different. Nice fruit from the yeast with balanced yeast spice. Booze does some through in the taste but definitely not hot at all. Nice hop bite as well. The nose creeps up on the taste after taking a sip. Lingering sweetness remains and eventually it does start to get a little warm from the 8 % abv. Its not that high of an abv hut must have fermented hot to get the yeast fruitiness to where its at.

M: Yeast spice and hop spice mingle and definitely make themselves present between sips. Alcohol does bring some warmth but only after a bit. Not something I would like to drink on a hot summer day, unlike Fantome Saison.

O: A decent example of a Brett inoculated saison but the alcohol bite and huge hop spice is a little too much. I actually have a non-Brett home brewed saison at this abv and made with huge amounts of EKG hops and I have a similar problem. In fact, it tastes almost identical minus the Brett tropical fruit flavors. Glad I tried it tho.

The aroma has fruity Brett notes of tropical, grapefruit, and pineapple. A hay funk from the Brett.

The flavor follows with that wonderful fruit flavor in the front of pineapple and mango. Then onto a funk quality that transitions quite aggressively towards metallic flavors or copper.

The finish is dry. A slightly disappointing brew.

Poured a nice cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Very true to style for a saison, quite nice. Scents of sour brett yeast, apricot, fruity esters and some spicy Belgian yeast. Despite the sour overtones there is a nice underlying frutiness that is the hallmark of a good saison. Very nice, wild, yet very much a saison. Flavor is quite sour upfront with a lemony character alongside sour green apple and green grape skin. In the middle the sourness continues but hints of pepper are also present. Finish is dry and sour with some slightly grainy notes. Aftertaste is sour brett yeast and lemon. A very good, sour saison with a large amount of sourness, yet still with the backbone of the style present. Very nice. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a drying feel. Good, true to style and quite nice. Overall this is an excellent sour saison that provides a good wild sour ale but also an excellent saison. The flavors, aroma and mouthfeel mingle to make this one quite enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Poured from the 375ml bottle into a tulip glass. Bottle No. 1459, Best by Dec 2018.

A slightly muddy body color and appearance, but nice orange and peach apricot colors. Slightly bright towards the edges. Head is very creamy, makes an easy three fingers of bone white colored head, and faint pill like clumping lacing on the glass. Reams and reams of side rising ultra slow carbonation white speckeled in abundance.

Nose is very balanced and subtle but real nice. Peach like fruit, dry brett but not overly hot or powerful. It's a very unique aroma that is hard to describe, part of that takes my score down since it feels so indistinct and unfamiliar. It's very impressive, but doesn't blow my mind.

Oh wow is this palate shocking. Completely unexpected hinting from the nose what is coming. An unbelievably creamy mouthfeel, with juiced fruit matching peach senses from the aromas. Vanilla cream and silky tones. Incredible fruit juiced mid palate of peaches, apricots, nectarines, the whole range of stone fruit like variety just bursting, juice and much skin rough tannic and flavors. Mild dry finish, but not overly peppery if at all. When I dunked the last of the dregs in, then there was more dryness and funk obviously, but took away from much of the fruit flavors.

Overall just keripes wow a fantastic saison. It's pear juice?... woah, that explains the green like skin I get perhaps. I think the only thing that doesn't make me score this higher is that it doesn't "quite" remind me of a classic big "brett" saison.

Served in the brewery's glass at Ale Arsenal.

Dark yellow, clear. Good head.

Subtle pleasant scent. Light piquancy. Fruit. Hint of acid.

Gorgeous, clean, gentle. Peaches, floral yeast, green apples. Vaguely tart. Exceptional. Certainly the best saison I've tasted.

Clean and pleasant.

All time highlight. Sublime beer. Highly recommended. Will have again.

A- Pours a very hazy, medium orange in color. A decent sized head of about 2 fingers in thickness forms and retains very well. Sticky and thick lacing is prominent on the glass as the drink goes down. The color of this drink is rather brilliant and stunning.

S- Lots going on in the scent here. Starts off light and rather fruity, as well as grainy and just a bit tart. Really a good combination of funky and fruity through the middle and end of the scent, with the pear showing its scent.

T- Starts off dry and very grainy. Flavors of dry wheat and other grains combine with yeast and funky brett flavors before the fruit and slight tart flavor kicks in towards the end. Pear is light and a little sweet, and it gets balanced out by a slight tart flavor towards the end. Lingering flavor is of wheat and funk.

M- This is pretty thick with grain and yeast, providing an overall smooth feel on the tongue. Alcohol is not detectable, but will catch up to you after a glass or so. Moderately filling, but still easy to drink overall.

Overall, this is a unique take on a brett saison. The pear provides a fruitiness and juiciness that is not always found in a saison, and the brett gives an overall dry flavor character to the drink.

Maybe they aren't exactly brewing beside the chickens or fermenting underneath the goats, but Logsdon Farmhouse Ales is "putting the farm back in farmhouse" with an authentic tasting saison that's just... well, peachy!

Seizoen Bretta taunts the nose with musty fruit, salty character and quasi-barnyard tone. Though tarter scents speak to dried lemon and other citrus, other and more earthen character of old wood, wine cork and the musken scent of sea air.

Yet on the palate, the distinctive ale is tart, dry and playfully acidic; showing off its wine-like tone. Though the mustiness of old and dried citrus play out on the middle, those rustic leather and horse hair character is absent. With the peach fruitiness and subtle sweetness, its briny taste evokes notions of saltwater taffy.

Closing with a powdery dryness and wafts of sawdust, the ale's acidity provides a tangy and peppery finish with echoes of saddle leather and horse hair to revisit the palate in a retro-nasal aftertaste. Its subtle alcohol warmth hides effortlessly behind a feathery tannin spice and yeasty pepper character.

With the heart of the Belgian and French farmlands in mind, its assuring to know that beer lovers of the Pacific Northwest have more to whet their whistle than only hoppy ale.

Says it's good through 2017. Can't wait that long!

Popped the top and let it sit for a few minutes...but it was not to be contained. A touch of foam started oozing out meaning it was time to pour. Pours a hazy copper colored ale with a billowing, massive amount of off-white foam. Major lacing!

Getting nice floral and citrus in the aroma. Big aroma to boot. Pears, banana and bubble gum...oh my.

The taste is awesome. There is a nice tart start to the sip and flavors of pear, lemon, grass, peach, funk, light pepper and malt all make an appearance. The tartness is very mild and really makes for an enjoyable sip each and every time. Dryness on the finish but salivates enough to make me want another sip.

Mouthfeel is good. The carbonation is definitely there but blends great.

Overall I really enjoyed this session. I wouldn't say I love beers with Brett, but this one had the right amount (and not too much) to make this a solid beer for the style. Perfect warm weather reach for. This was my first venture with the Logsdon crew but definitely not my last. Very reasonably priced as well which is sweet!

Drank from a 1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz./750 ml bottle purchased at Healthy Spirits, San Francisco, CA
Bottle No. SB 39256
Best by: 04/2018

This was a gusher! The super cloudy, yellow ochre liquid was topped by a gigantic, tight, frothy, off-white crop of sea foam. As the head faded, it left big chunks of thick, sticky lacing in its wake. Due to the gushing, large yeast particles made it into the beer and eventually collected in the base of the glass. A thick, foamy film coated the liquid and lasted throughout the session.

The aroma was really interesting and complex. Crisp and fresh. Super fruity and funky with lots of bretty tartness. Powdery and dry yeast notes were quite apparent. Spices, including clove and coriander, were noticeable as well. With time, the tart and funky qualities intensified and the nose turned almost gueuze-like.

There was also a ton going on in the flavor profile. Sweet malts came through on the front end. I thought I picked up some Belgian candi sugar as well. Quite fruity. Pears and apples were detectible. Wheaty with notes of lemon and hay in the center. Hint of spice (clove especially). A musty, barnyard-like character was apparent. Touch of oak. As the beer moved along the palate, the flavor profile dried out substantially. Citrus rind and bitter, earthy hop notes lingered in the crisp, dry, lemony finish. As the beer warmed, the musty, funky, barnyard character intensified. Some white wine-like qualities appeared as well.

The mouthfeel was outstanding. As would be expected with any gushing beer, this one was highly effervescent. Almost Champagne-like. The light, frothy, fluffy liquid turned pillowy soft after it settled on my palate. Amazingly plush and silky smooth.

While there are a number of brett-infused saisons on the market today, Seizoen Bretta takes the cake in terms of overall complexity and mouthfeel. I aged my bottle for nearly a year and would recommend others to do likewise if you want the brett to be kickin'. Just be careful when you pop the cap!

"Best by 08/2018"

Hazy golden color with a massive white head.

Smells great - stone fruit, flowers, peppery spice, some bretty sharpness, good complexity, extremely attractive.

Tastes terrific - peach, hay, spice, moderate but refreshing acidity, dry, long finish with just a touch of bitterness developing, good intensity of flavor, balance, complexity, and drinkability.

Tiny bubbles, cushy texture, extremely refreshing and drinkable.

One of my very favorite saisons, never fails.

Revisiting a favorite. Poured into a belgian tulip. First one I had relatively fresh and was blown away. Second I had cellared for about 10 months and it lost a bit of the charm I liked from the first.

Pours a like a murky dark apple cider with an orange tinge, rocky three finger beige head that hangs around and leaves lots of sticky film on the sides of the glass.

Aroma is bright apple, pear, OJ, bready malts, earthy spice, basement funk, and pineapple brettafied yeast esters. Complex, balanced, bright, and mouthwatering are the best descriptors I can sum this up with.

The taste brings huge yeast esters of pepper, clove, orange peel, underripe pineapple, pear skin, old golden raisin and rounds out with sourdough, rye bread, cracked wheat, and oatmeal malt character. Earthy hops add an extra soft kick. Finishes dry and spicy, lovely.

Mouthfeel is heavier side of light. Carbonation is high but not spritzy, gives more of a creamy impression.

Yes,,, this is the masterpiece I remembered the first one i had being. This is the epitome of the farmhouse saison style. All Saisons with brett should be judged against this one. Let's get this straight, it's not the BEST saison I've had but it's the one that laid out the cards and said, beat this queens high royal flush.

Consumed December 22nd, 2013 at Blue Palms Brewhouse, Hollywood, CA.

Appearance: medium yellow with fine white head. Some active carbonation.

Aroma of wild, slightly musty, tart, sour, old sock funkiness. But moderate.

Beer is slightly cheesy tasting, slightly tart. A little sour. Bitter on finish. Soft Belgian flowery yeast in the middle.

Medium mouthfeel.

This is a win, except in the refreshment department; it's a bit heavier than most saisons. The alcohol is well-hidden, though.

From a 750 ml bottle (best by December 20, 2018) into a tulip.

A-A normal pour produces a compact head of dense, white foam that peaks at about a finger and a half. The retention is good at roughly three minutes, and lacing is left behind on the glass. The brew is murky and pale honey in color.

S-The aroma is slightly zesty with citrus, green apple, pear, and a light, funky kick. The beer has a bready, doughy malt base. The aroma is mild, but a nice fit for the style.

T-The taste is a balanced mixture of brett flavors and mild funk. I taste pineapple, a bit of lemon, tree fruit like green apples and pear, as well as a bit of floral flavor. The fruit and flowers mingle nicely with a relatively dry, bretted-up, bready malt base. The finish is heavier on the brett and drying.

M-The feel is medium body with a smooth carbonation. Very drinkable.

O-I was excited to try this beer and it did not let me down. The mouthfeel is really nice and drinkable, and it pairs well with the flavor profile here. This is a very balanced beer with a subtle complexity that doesn't hit you over the head with flavor, but still provides plenty to think about on the palate. Unlike a lot of brett beers, i could drink this regularly and repeatedly and not get tired of it.
