Bright, golden yellow with an even cloudiness. Fizzy bubbles fill rapidly the upper half of the glass. Retention is merely a thin layer of white bubbles. A few spots of speckled lace. Jeff's glass has better lace.

The aroma is fruity and grassy. It has a lot of pear, mild apple, prairie grass, pollen and straw. Subtle spices - some clove. Clean aroma.

I'm taken by surprise - this has a notably punchy taste. It isn't tart but is loaded with over-ripe light fruits. Mostly apple. The middle finds herbal notions and spice. Wet grass and musty hay finish.

I'm inclined to call this close to a medium feel, if only for the alcohol slickness it displays. Carbonation was high at first but most of it fades out by halfway through the glass.

Pretty enjoyable overall. I could go for a 1.5-2% lower abv.

375ml bottle - hmmm...'Seizoen' - I presume Logsdon has a strong Dutch connection, or are just pretentious. No mention of pear juice on this one's label.

This beer pours a hazy, bright medium golden amber hue, with one finger of weakly foamy, somewhat bubbly, and generally soapy dirty white head, which leaves some random streaky lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of wet banana chips, earthy yeast, white pepper and other sundry, indistinct spices, a soft pome fruitiness, and a tame grainy pale malt sweetness. The taste is sharp, acrid yeast, gritty and grainy pale malt, ethereal banana esters, underripe pears and apples, muddled table pepper spice, a bit of tart, undeveloped musty tanned leather, and plain leafy, weedy, and mildly perfumed hops.

The carbonation is fairly involved in its stubborn and sturdy frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and not particularly smooth, as that zippy yeast and its edgy friends wreak havoc as such right here. It finishes trending dry, although the base malt seems to have a chip on its shoulder as it soldiers on.

Just weird and different enough to let the uncommon Dutch (Flemish?) naming convention pass - yeah, that yeast does a number on my palate with its various flavour contributions, but alas, the heady astringency just makes it hard to drink. So, I suppose, the overall score suffers a tad, yet don't let that stop you from giving this one a go, especially if this is your sort of thing in the first place.

A: hazy, pale golden with a great 1 inch white fluffy head. Great retention and lacing. Can't ask for a better looking Saison.

S: Doesn't have a strong smell but I definitely get all the smells related toa saison. Pepper, orange rind, lemon, hay, and the barnyard funky characteristics. It has a crisp and honey aromas as well. Can't ask for a better smelling Saison.

T: Everything from the nose. Very round and full flavored. Got some honey and pineapple. Not as dry as I thought. More on the sweet side, fruity if I had to use a word. Finally I got why it is so fruity. The pear juice makes much complex and more interesting. Like it.

M: Goes down pretty nice. Leaves a little dry sensationbut the finish is long and fruity. I know, it's ironic but the back of my palate feels dry but the rest of my mouth has the lingering sweetness.

O: Great job by Longsdon. It's a greatly done beer. It is probably a little too sweet for the style but I must say I loved it. Woudn't hesitate to order it again. Refreshing and delicious. A must try.

Hazed, yellow and golden with a moderately sized off-white head that leaves spiderwebs of gorgeous lace all the way down the glass.

Complete and appropriate aroma of earth, hay, grass, a hint of musty barnyard, and a bit of fruit.

The flavor is similar, and incredibly drinkable. Earthy, barnyard flavors complement hay, grass, earth, and a bit of black pepper.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. Incredibly drinkable and very well crafted.

I love this beer, though I slightly prefer the version with Brett.

Poured a golden yellow color, with a big frothy white head. Aromas of straw and citrus with just a bit of spice. The flavor is pretty close to the smell, with just a hint of pear and Granny Smith Apple, very earthy flavors. The mouthfeel was fairly thick and almost creamy, very nice. Overall, quite a tasty saison, one of the better ones I've enjoyed. Would certainly buy again in the future if I could find it.

Poured an initial massive four fingers of thick white head which slowly settled into a cloudy golden orange body with two fingers of head. Overall impression of appearance is of a nice saison, that due to the rustic nature of the beer explodes with head. Scents of fruit upfront with notes of orange, pear, a light, tart funk imparting mild lemon and barnyard aromas, with a moderate phenol presence giving notes of clove and white pepper at medium-low levels mingling with the fruity aromas. Soft, perfume-like hops and soft, sweet malt contribute to background aromas. Overall impression of aroma is of a fantastic saison highlighting fruit and spice aromas, melded together in harmony. Flavor begins with notes of light fruit imparting notes of orange flesh and orange peel and light notes of lemon zest mingled with light earthy hay and barnyard funk and light phenols of white pepper and clove. Middle gains in phenols leading to medium-low white pepper and clove character mingling with citrus fruit and light floral hops and barnyard funk with a light sourness. Finish is dry with notes of white pepper and clove, fruity notes of citrus, orange, lemon and zest, light sourness and funk with a barnyard and earthy character with a moderate bitterness. Aftertaste is white pepper, floral hops, orange zest and a moderate bitterness. Overall impression of flavor is of a very well crafted saison that is flavorful imparting many flavors, including wild barnyard character fitting a true farmhouse ale, as well as the fruit and spice of the style. Fantastic. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with effervescent carbonation and a juicy initial feel that ends drying and lightly puckering. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a fantastic saison. Overall this is one of the best saisons I have tried. It has a fantastic aroma and flavor, imparting all the notes of the style layered with excellent farmhouse rustic character and a magnificent mouthfeel. A true farmhouse ale.
