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.

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.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a large (2-3 finger) white dense frothy head that receded slowly, down to a medium cap that lasted throughout thus creating excellent sticky sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a harsh grain malt and a musty Brett yeast with notes of citrus (lime and lemon peel), coriander and a strong fruity ester (apples and pears).

The taste was a bit grainy and a tad sweet with a nice strong fruity presence early on, and then became rather yeasty and a little tart with a crisp citrus taste along with a mildly bitter spiciness that became more pronounced towards the finish. The flavor lasted a decent time after the swallow, with a spicy tart yeast taste left to linger on the taste buds for a little while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation.

Overall this was a superb representation of the style. It possessed a nice crisp feel and a ton of flavor, now add a great drinkability and you have yourself one awesome brew. You can bet your sweet bottom that I am going to have another one of these...

Huge thanks to Trilogy31 for throwing this one in as an extra.

This beer looks darker than your average saison, with a nice golden yellow, smells great with some nice tropical fruit coming from the brett, but it's the flavor that really makes this one shine. It's awesomely drinkable at 8% and has an incredible fruity flavor to it with a nice balance that keeps it from being too sweet. Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated and rather dry. Overall, an amazing beer - I wish I had access to this year-round!

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.

The beer is orange and hazy with a quarter inch of white head. The aroma brings lemon rind, orange peel, grass, floral hops, citrus. Smells nice. The flavor imparts orange citrus, floral hops, a touch of wild yeast. Medium bodied with a slightly bitter finish. Lingering floral hops.

Pours a nice unfiltered golden orange with a thick cream colored head. The smell is very bretty (in a good way) without the vinegar hints of a more traditional sour. Taste is a great balance of malt, brett and a hint of citrus and hops at the end. Purchased at Whole Foods in Pasadena, CA.

Bottle No. SB 8505; Best By 01/2017.

Hazy buckwheat honey color. Perfect-looking meringue head of eggy and frothy density. Marvelous lacing. My pour has some yeast cake chunks on the bottom of the glass and stuck to the top of the foam.

Tart and moldy aromas with bright solvent-y brett nuances. Farmhouse nuttiness, tart lemon rind, and light peppery spices. Great tartness in a saison.

Bright and tart and hugely brett-y. White pepper, lemon pith, sour peach, bleu cheese, crabapple, and maybe a scarce element of the pear juice that was added. Savory funk and citric acidity meet flamboyant saison yeast strains and piquant peppery spices. A bit cedary, adding to the brightness. The most delicious saison that I can recall drinking, to-date.

Nice spicy sting in the finish burns a bit with the acidity, which is at a lovely levels. Carbonation is even and spritzy. I can't afford to test the drinkability by gulping this. Must be savored.

Opening this bottle up made my night. Time to revisit Fantome to see which is the best of the bunch.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle SB9985, best by 2/2017. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Giant head and excellent retention. Hazy orange body. Nice lacing as it settles down.

Smell - Bretty and a little fruity. Grainy malts back there, but mostly brett.

Taste - Very bretty again. Strong wine fruitiness. Very light grains and no bitterness in the finish at all.

Mouthfeel - Very dry and well carbonated. Nice and light.

Overall - Good. Well bretted, but uncomplex. Comes out tasting like almost nothing but brett, as many of these do, but it's nice all the same.
