I have been waiting to pop open this bottle that i got as an EXTRA! from sukwonee, cheers man!

A - This could be the most beautiful beer I have ever seen! Beautiful golden haze that almost seems to emanate light. Big billowing head rises high and settles to a thick ring that is here for the long haul

S - Barnyard, great funk profile, bananas, green apple, cloves, big phenol, aspirin, great yeasty notes. There's more but I want to get this review done so I can keep drinking it

T - The balance of flavors that is going on is totally remarkable. Brett, pear, sour tang and slight aspiriny bitterness, yeasty and bready sweetness. Awesome!

M - Light bodied and smooth as hell

This beer has a 95, but not even that could prepare me for it. So fucking good. Cant wait to savor the rest of the bottle!

4.1/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pour is pure hazed pale gold with tons of tight fluffy white head. Nose is very nice, faint farmhouse yeast up front with a great Brett presence of citrus and apricot, faint spice behind. Taste is more integrated but a little less bright, just slightly. Light farmhouse, nice citrus and peach, faint banana. Strong carbonation and dry finish on the light airy body.

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

A-Pours a murky pale orange with a great top. Puffy head is quite white and stingy with its lacing.

S-Funky and bretty of course. I get a lingering note of rotten, wet wood (which is actually quite awesome). Rotty fruits and nature's gift of buzzing yeast.

T-That wet, rotted wood note is still there as it complements 'ripe to the point of rotten' fruits. Brett is well proportioned here; sometimes the strain lends too much intensity. I find that in this brew it lends more uniqueness than intensity. Very complex.

M-Surprised by the ABV. The never ending complexity forces my next sip. Tingly feel with a lingering funky kick.

O/D-Really cool. I didn't love it but I'm pretty sure I haven't had many like it. Would love to try their Peche 'n Brett.

From 04/27/13 notes. Big thanks to nugganooch for sending this out to me; thanks Dane! 750ml bottle.

a - Pours a hazy orange-golden color with two fingers plus of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Loads of lacing and retention.

s - Smells of brett, lightly soured pears and fruity malts, hay, spice, pepper, yeast, apples, citrus, and floral hops. Loads of brett; really awesome nose.

t - Tastes of a ton of brett again, citrus, apples, pears, tropical fruits, grapes, fruity malts, sourness, hay, earthy notes, herbal and floral notes. Not as sour as the nose but really nice. Really like it.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink, no alcohol present at all. Creamy and smooth; awesome body.

o - Overall I thought this was a fantastic saison. I love brett and this one has tons of it. I also like my saison's a little more fruity vs. spicy, and that is how I found this one. Easy to drink; really makes me want to try their Peche n Brett now.

Served on tap into a snifter

A- Poured a very bright and hazy golden color with a white soapy head that left splashy lace. Love the color on this beer.

S- Some funky brett character, lemon, yeasty esters, pineapple, and green apple in the aroma. Pretty aromatic with strong fruity notes and some nice funk

T- Big brett character, yeasty notes, pineapple, green apple, peach, and lemon notes. Some light peppery notes

M- Fairly dry, medium body, soft carbonation, and quite smooth

O- Nice funky notes from the brett and tartness, but not an overwhelmingly sour beer at all. Bursting with fresh fruit flavors. This is a really nice belgian brett beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A: Gushed all over the counter, Lots of foam that lasted for several minutes. But its a nice cloudy orange color.
S: Like Brett, some minor pear notes, sourness with a bunch of farmhouse zest.
T: Like combining a Saison and a sour into one bottle and shaking them with a drop of pear juice. Quite good.
O: Great, really cool interesting brew.

Bottled 11/12:

Glowing honey gold body cluttered with streams of tiny beading. A massive, swelling white rocky head fills the glass before forming layer after layer of perfect lace.

Oh my... such a bright smelling beer. Crisp pale fruit with funky yeast and a honey kind of sweetness. Dry with white pepper and maybe some clove or wheat. Super clean. Smells fantastic.

More aggressive on the palate with an apparent alcohol presence. Pear, white grape, plenty of funk that plays well with the rest of the beer. Very dry, very clean.

This stuff is delicious.

750 ml split with a few friends, poured into a NEBCO tulip.

Appearance is a cloudy golden color with a couple fingers of a bright white head. Its` nose has banana, funk, grains, white pepper and lemon. Sipping on this farmhouse & I taste apricots, belgian yeast, brett, more lemon and candied sugar. Mmm, this tastes pretty damn good. Mouthfeel is medium with great carbonation. It was a treat to try this beer, it was very good overall. I most certainly recommend picking it up or trying it if you are given the opportunity.

750 ml bottle into a HF wine glass Bottle No. 14, 581. Best Before: 06/2017. HUGE gush over upon opening, took a few minutes to calm it down and collect all the foam.

A - Obviously the beer got mixed up due to the gush. Pours a hazy peach color, huge billowing mound of dirty white foam with some brown tints. Pretty aggressive looking but awfully lively.

S - One of the most enjoyable saison aromas. Earthy brett funk, sweet pears and apples, tart lemon juice, yeast and some grass. Light on the spices which I really prefer. Its just so funky and fruity. This is excellent stuff.

T - Again with the brett funk and the sweet pear and apple juices. Pretty yeasty. A touch of grass and an absence of the usual spices and peppercorns typical to the style. Tart and delicious. The beer is medium bodied and creamy but with a dry and bretty finish. Rather complex and stupidly delicious. The 8% abv is not even noticeable.

O - The best American made saison I have ever had, I'd even go so far as to say its better than the Hill Farmstead offerings. Its simple and clean with plenty of brett and fruit juice overtones. This has sat for weeks and even still it exploded upon opening. Getting over that I adore this beer.

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

A: Pours a hazy yellow-gold with three fingers of white head that fades into a nice cap with good lacing.

S: Light spice notes up front with candy sugar and light fruits. Almost white wine-like. Light barnyard aromas bring up the finish.

T: Belgian spices and light fruits here followed by a nice kick of musty barnyard Brett flavors. The finish is slightly bitter, bready, and a little funky (in a good way). Tasty.

M: Mid-light body with mid-high carbonation, this beer is refreshing and drinkable.

O: A nice Brett saison overall. Not too sweet or watery, but rather dry and just a little funky. Quite enjoyable.

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

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a short white head consisting of large bubbles and never died down.
S: Light aromas of sourness are present in the nose; some hints of pears become perceptible as the beer warms up.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is somewhat sour up front with bits of roughness with some grainy malts and wheat but then turns a bit sweet with hints of pears towards the finish. The pears become a little srronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little dry and chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and quite interesting because it manages to provide two distinct flavors on the front and back ends of the taste.

4.13/5  rDev -4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some apricot + peach highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy off-white head of larger bubbles that reduces to a medium sized slightly thicker patch of large bubbles, a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate amounts of brett funkiness and tartness over some lighter notes of light fruit (pear and apple). There is a light amount of lemon citrus along with some herbs - lemongrass and a light hint of clove. Light to moderate notes of hay.

T: Similar to the smell, there are notes of light fruits upfront including white grape, apple, and pear over the top of lighter lemon citrus and hay. There is a moderate amount of funkiness and tartness with hints of spices - lemongrass, white pepper, and just a touch of clove. There is a light amount of bitterness that fades almost instantly.

M: Medium bodied with moderat amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness. Moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This beer is very easy to drink for as big as it is - the alcohol is very well hidden and it is not overly sour or tart. I found it enjoyable but if you are not a fan of brett, this one might not be for you.

750ml bottle into snifter. Best before 08/2017.

A: Cap popped very slowly. Definitely a frothy one. Pours lightly cloudy golden with a huge, billowing bright white head that slowly faded into a rocky film leaving a network of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Peppery spices dominate alongside notes of lemony citrus, earthy brett, peach, white grapes, black pepper, herbal hop and dry must.
T: Follows the nose with spice, earthy brett and peach. Citrus, herbal leafiness, greasy bread, golden pear, honey, and black pepper come through next. The finish is drying and full of brett and maybe a bit of wheat, and the aftertaste is lighty funky and tart.
M: Slick yet drying mouthfeel, medium-full body, and ample yet soft carbonation.
O: Very very good. Not the best saison with brett but definitely up there. Worth checking out.

#TBS11 and #BOTG 3. Poured from bottle into Hill Farmstead glass. Pours a very cloudy golden orange/yellow color. It may be the light in the room, but the color near the top of the glass lightens to an almost yellow color. Really nice head retention, a creamy appearance of white head. Smell- bready yeast, a little bit of funk. There's a sweetness, almost fruit pear aroma to go along with the bready yeast aroma. Really nice aroma. Taste- sweet creamy breadiness, a little bit of hop bitterness on the sides of my mouth, and on the end, the twangy barnyard funk delivers a little sharp kick with a tart finish to let you know the Brett is in play. The signature of this beer is its mouthfeel (creamy, rich) and it's yeast presence (bready, Brett funk ending) and the sweet malt presence that balances out the beer perfectly. This is one that I've looked forward to for awhile and it lives up to the hype. Well done.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

I'll say it: boo this spelling... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises orange juice, potting soil, buttery toffee, and a small smattering of dark greens. So much earth... The taste tones down the earth a ways, but still continues the general trend of dominance on the part of the Brett. Here, there's more of the fruity aspect of the yeast, though the earth and cobweb remain. It's all a bit much in this department, if you ask me, but it's luckily not enough to completely sink the ship of state. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, if you're a Brett fan, you'll find endless entertainment here; otherwise, your tongue might receive something of an overdose...

4.49/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Poured into a tulip. As one expects from a saison, it leaps out of the bottle and produces a lot of almost pure cotton white head with the lightest hint of yellow. The body is a hazy medium to dark straw color that glows when it is held up to the light. This leaves lots of lacing, a nice net left on the side of the glass.

Nose- Apple is the most dominant scent right off the bat. There is spicy yeast and ester but this is subdued next to the strong apple, some strawberry. I can already tell that I'm going to like this one a lot. There is also a characteristic sour smell that has hints of lemon and lemon peel.

Taste- Sour cherry and apple at first. Very crisp. The fruity quickly plateaus into the funky mustiness of Brett. The Brett isn't very dominant and it only appears as the sharp beginnings of the sour apple, lemon, cherry, and grapefruit begin to subside. This has a heavier feel to it than most saisons. There is some wood and oak in this and what I guess you would describe as horse blanket.

Mouthfeel- I don't detect a tingle or a lot of carbonation that you get with a lot of saisons. There isn't a distinct tingle but it does leave your mouth with a slight feeling of effervescence. This is a little heavier than your typical saison. It reminds one of apple juice. You don't taste alcohol in this one at all.

Drinkability- A little thicker than some saisons but it is a little more alcoholic so that seems acceptable. It reminds one of apple juice and even veers toward apple cider. At ten bucks for a 750mL bottle, this is a bargain for the quality.

Overall- Very enjoyable, a solid A as far as I'm concerned, maybe even an A+. Very nice to be able to get Belgium quality from an Oregon brewery. It really impresses upon me that I need to take a trip to Upright Brewery to sample their saisons.

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

Poured from 750 mL bottle into cervoise. Bottle No. SB 34616. Best by: 02/2018.
A: I don't usually comment on the label's appearance, but this is a nice one and immediately brings to mind Switzerland even though it is from Oregon. Pours a beautiful hazy orange-yellow with a 1-2 inch bubbly white head. Good retention and faint sticky lacing that lasts forever.
S: Pleasant and fresh aroma of citrus (esp. orange and lemon), brett funk, melon, and spices (cinnamon, white pepper, and a hint of clove). With warming, honey and white wine notes emerge.
T: A splash of pear hits up front, quickly followed by citrus (orange), toasted malt, brett barnyard funk, acidic passion fruit, white pepper, and tart lime and grapefruit. Quite a refined and complex profile.
M: Light body. Lightly sweet and smooth feel. Midway through it turns more tart and finishes delicately dry.
D: A nicely complex and refreshing offering made even more impressive by it's organic qualification. A solid take on the style and extremely well-crafted with some unique touches (the brett strain is less aggressive than many and the pear adds a surprisingly nice aspect). A perfect beer to enjoy outside on a cool, but sunny spring day.

8.00% ABV confirmed. 1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle with waxed over (beeswax according to the label) pressure cap and appealing artful label served into a conical Samuel Smith's pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are quite high; I've heard great things about Logsdon and saison is one of me favourite styles. "Specialty organic farmhouse ale" brewed with brettanomyces. Unfiltered. "Best by 11/2017. Bottle number SB 24106. Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth." "Enjoy served at 48-54F." This is my first Logsdon beer.

Served straight from the fridge - right in that 45-54 degree Fahrenheit range. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Even with a standard, non-vigorous pour, the beer yielded a 7-8 finger head. Pure white colour, soft-lookng, with god cream and even better thickness. Retention is damned impressive (~9+ minutes) for the high ABV. Body colour is a clearly unfiltered hazy vibrant yellow-gold. No yeast particles are visible - at least this high up in the glass. No bubble show. Light sticky lacing as the head recedes. Looking good for the style; everything's copacetic.

Sm: Soft pear. Fleeting light brettanomyces yeast character. A bit of biscuity spice. Light lemongrass. Lemon custard. Farmhouse/funky. Crisp apple. Clove. Hay. Light fresh wheat. White grapeskin. A hint of white pepper - but not as much as I want in a good saison. No milky character either. It's a soft, fleetingly light aroma that signals refreshment to come. I hope it delivers.

T: Delightful pear notes, with white grape skin and crisp apple skin. Lemongrass forms the body. It's not as funky as I expected; bretts are there but are mainly biscuity. The sweet pear nicely balances any funkiness that might otherwise have been present. Just a hint of tartness. Any hop character is primarily floral, but that isn't the highlight here. Clove spice. Light crystal malt, lending it a somewhat tingly feel. Really refreshing and well balanced, with no alcohol coming through at all. Lemon zest. A bit of pineapple ester flavour, which I'm not huge on. Buried white pepper - so buried it's almost imperceptible. This is a really tasty saison, but it lacks the complexity and subtlety of superior Belgian offerings (namely Fantome and Dupont). The pear in particular is a highlight here and is masterfully executed. It's quite juicy. I'm really liking it. Well put together.

Mf: More smooth and wet than most saisons, but also perhaps more refreshing. Perfect carbonation. Feels tailored specifically to its flavour profile. Juicy. Great body and presence on the palate.

Dr: Incredibly drinkable for the high ABV. I really like this beer. Lives up to Logdson's reputation. I'd get it again. It would probably age well, too. Would pair well with many foods. I look forward to trying more beer from Logsdon. It's one hell of a siason - especially for an American example of the style. Tasty stuff. I'd recommend it to friends. A solid example of a style that's difficult to pull off.

Pours a cloudy orange colour with stupidly generous head. Sinking marshmallow style with intricate ace weavings. A thing of beauty, really.

Smells funky and tasty. Slight vanilla cream on the front and then a sour, lemony/barnyard funk on the back. Touch of redcurrant and strawberry. Lovely.

Tastes quite odd, actually. Far sweeter, with creme custardy malt upfront. Funk is earthier, with wet lucerne, mould and damp characters, slight moonshine flavour on the back and only a hint of tartness. Bit astringent, but overall still very pleasant and enjoyable.

A bit of sizzle and slightly dry on the back. Not bad, though.

Good organic brew with a lot of natural flaws and inconsistencies, which aren't a problem; they just keep you intrigued.

750ml bottle poured into a tall wine glass.

The beer pours a lovely copper color, hues of straw, orange peel, very hazy complexion with a lovely 3 finger white soapy head that has great retention and leaves behind a wonderful network of lacing. The aroma is superb, lots of yeasty funk, citrus, light banana with some playful berries, light alcohol and pale cereal grain. The flavors are really nice, lots of zesty yeast, bretty funk with nice floral elements that bring out some citrus and berry fruit with an earthy grain laden finish with a bit of alcohol that lingers behind. The body is nice and lively, rich and full, coats the mouth very nicely with a lightly creamy, albeit prickly, finish.

Verdict: A stunning Saison from Lodgson and one of the more impressive American made beers for the style. The balance is wonderful, artfully complex, while remaning very quaffable. A joy to drink.

A: Hazy, bright yellow/orange. Finger layer if bright white. Sticky lacing sheeting. Really beautiful brew.

S: Nose is nice and sweet. Get that barnyard funk, but also the sweetness if the pear juice etc. smells of wheat too. Citrus hop aromas. Fresh wheat.

T: Nice funk in the sip. It's very well crafted. Good bit of light spice. Some fruit from that pear juice. The hops are good and fruity. Dry finish. This is fabulous.

M: Body is medium.

Serving type: bottle
