A: Orange color that is probably close to peach flesh. Fluffy head.
S: Peach is palpable. So is the brett (unfortunately for my palate). Jolly rancher sweetness. Some mandarin.
T: Delicately sour - I would have prefered more to bring out fruit flavors.
Overall, it's decent, but I wish the peach flavor was more concentrated. In my opinion, it's a mistake to use a brett beer as a base. The flavors are just too overpowering and so less focus is left for the fruit. For a true classic in this vein, try Cantillon's Fou Foune (you might have to go to Brussels for this). Fou Foune could teach this beer some lessons - it has sharp acidity that brings out the fruit, extreme complexity, and exquisite balance. Wild yeasts all the way!!

Logsdon seizoen brett pours a beautiful hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Funky and slightly sour in the aroma with hint of citrus. There is just a hint of pale malt sweetness that quickly leads into a dry, slightly tart and sour funk. The classic saison flavors are there and blend perfectly with the flavors from the brett.

4.13/5 rDev -4%
Poured a pale murky orange in color with pale yellow highlights and a nice half finger of head that left some good bubbly lacing sticking to the glass. Lots of funky brett upfront in the aroma with plenty of citrus character, mild spice, signs of apple fruit, subtle herbs and tart qualities. Like the aroma there was plenty of bretty funk with citrus zest accents, good oaky character, a touch of spice alongside a little applesaucey flavor, subtle herbs and mild sweetness. The brew was medium in bdoy with a good amount of carbonation. Which had a semi sweet, mild fruity, funky, slight spice, citrusy and tart finish. Just the way I like my saisons and these guys know how to do it.
