750ml bottle, best by 2017, poured into a Fantôme tulip. Thanks Tony!

A: Cloudy orange body under a huge 3" head of white froth. Gusher, but great in the glass.

S: Apple, hay, earthiness, flowers and faint citrus. The Brett isn't as funky as I'd like, but overall it's beautifully complex and integrated.

T: A little cheesy funk and minerality up front, with earthy, floral, and citrusy flavors behind. Lightly boozy, spicy finish. Way funkier than the aroma, and very tasty; the boozy aftertaste keeps it from getting a higher score, though.

M: Soft medium body, creamy carbonation. Lovely.

O: Excellent Saison, but it fell short of my expectations given all the great things I'd heard about it. I enjoyed Boulevard Saison Brett far more.

Cheers!

Had on tap at the Pine Box. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a small white head on top, tight foamy that lasts for a good while. Nice lacing down the glass.

S: Has a nice bretty aroma, a little bit of hay, yeasty spice, with some nice fruity aromas as well. Some citrus, lemon, apple, and a little peach/apricot.

T: Very nice! Lots of citrus, lemon, a bit of apple and apricot. It has a nice bretty flavor, a bit of hay, and faint tartness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Extremely easy to drink, goes down smooth.

O: A great beer from Logsdon. I think I like this version more than the oaked version, a little less chalky, with a stronger fruit flavor.

Pours a dark golden yellow, light orange color with a tall, fluffy slowly dissipating white head that leaves some soapy lacing.

Aromas begin with some light Brett yeast, biscuit dough, some earthy basement. As it warms more of the Belgian-esque yeastiness emerges but not in an off-putting way. aromas and a fair amount of fruit. Light grassy and lemon citrus is also there as well as a touch of tropical fruit.

The tastes begin with a pleasant Belgian ester and spice combination and prominent sweet biscuity doughy breadiness. The body finishes rather dry but there is a touch of sweetness that emerges as it warms. There is also emerging grassiness, earth and pepper.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Finish is dry and clean overall with plenty of drying Brett and Belgian yeast flavors. Not a drop of alcohol which is impressive for such a simple malt based, higher ABV beer.

Overall this is one of the top 3 unadulterated Belgian Saisons I have ever had (with no adjuncts like oak or fruit). I would drink this none stop during the summer regardless of cost if it was readily accessible on the East Coast. Portland, f*** you.

Wow! A friend brought this back for me from the West Coast.

A wonderful saison with Brett.

The beer pours a beautiful golden color with a 3 finger head.

Light fruit and spices from the aroma.

The mouth feel is lightly carbonated and greatly adds to the subtlety of the finish.

The taste is fruit- I couldn't quite identify the fruit- not tropical, but apricot and orange.

The finish was outstanding. One of the best in this style. Crisp and dry from the Brett yeast.
It adds to the entire drinking experience in this beer.

Overall- from aroma to finish- a great beer. Well balanced, crisp, not too fruity or carbonated.
Classy and earthy.

750ml bottle.

Pours hazy copper with a two inch head of rocky beige. Tattered lacing and a partial skim coat on the surface for the duration.

Aromatics lead off with pineapple, pear, red apples, wet hay, and tropical fruit. Hints of cut grass and forest floor follow though. Fallen fruit on wet hay and cut grass after a spring rain.

Light bodied with a crisp, zesty mouthfeel.

Ripe fruit with crackery malt running through starts the palate. Apples, pears, and pineapple with a trace of lemon. Shades of honey, biscuits, cloves, and yeasty funk follow through.

Finishes fruity, dry and a bit wine-like.

Nice Saison but the brett character is a bit subdued. Love the lush fruity character though.

Bottle SB34858, Best By 02/2018

A: Pours a quite hazy medium orange. Enormous fluffy and fizzy white head. Head fizzes away fairly quickly, leaving minimal lacing - just a little skidmark here and there. Good retention too, nice little island floats around forever.

S: Tart citrus and pears/apples as well. Quite funky. Hints of graham cracker.

T: Better than it smells. Slightly tart and funky pears (stronger here) with some lemons backing it up. Sweeter pears helps balance the light tartness. Graham cracker notes up front but turns into more of a dry saltine-like note in the middle. Drying in the finish with light citrus notes.

M: Medium bodied, smooth.

O: The smell kinda turned me off but the taste was great. Excellent balance of tart and sweet flavors leaving you with a tasty and refreshing saison. Almost no black pepper at all, uncommon in a saison. Mostly fruity and crackery flavors. Very nice saison, I enjoyed it a lot, it's up there with Boulevard Saison-Brett.
