On tap for the 4th Annual LA Beer Week Beer Festival at Union Station in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and spices. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and refreshing.

Huge thanks to boralyl for getting me a bottle of this. Served side-by-side with the Bretta version. Bottle into a goblet. Warning: this was a bit of a gusher. Pours a pale orange-light copper color with a very large, rocky white head. Really nice retention and quite a bit of lacing. The nose carries really nice notes of spice and pear with some backing stone fruit. It’s surprisingly similar to the Bretta version. I’m extremely impressed how much complexity there is coming out of a clean saison. This is one of the best American versions of the style that I’ve had. A bit of malt character in the background. Dry after light-medium body. Crisp carbonation. Really not much to complain about here.

From a bottle, pours a bright gold with a wispy white head that sits on top of the beer before sinking into the glass.

The nose is bread crust, lots of yeast, a little fruit, some banana. It smells a little rustic, musty, with crackers and cracked pepper.

The flavor is delicious. Very clean, a bit sweet. Alot of bread dough, candied sugar, pepper and cloves and faint fruit. This is really good, I like the spicy notes mixed with the malt character.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color. It poured with a finger high white head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of pears and yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light flavors of pears along with notes of yeast and hints of non-descript malts.
M: It feels light - to medium-bodied and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation. There are also some hints of dryness.
O: This beer is very easy to drink. I liked how the pear aromas and flavors were subtle.

Bottle No. S 16382
Best by: 11/2015

Appearance: As would be expected from a yeast master, the beer looks great, with a huge frothy head that perches on the cloudy apricot nectar colored liquid

Smell: Crusty bread and pear juice, with musty tones, banana and leather

Taste: Bready, up front, with lemongrass, pear juice, grape must and banana building; pepper and clove tones develop, after the swallow, along with leathery funk

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: It has been a while since I have had a Saison this good and I am pleased to see it come from a domestic craft brewer; Saisons have been my favorite style but I had forgotten how good they can be having had so many mediocre examples recently; congratulations to Logsdon for brewing this beer

Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow/beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with nice floral undertones is very enticing. Taste is a nice mix between some quite dry rustic malt with nice floral malt notes and some light fruity ester also discernable. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This beer was very well brewed and quite enjoyable but missed a little bit of character to make it into the major league of Saison.

We’ve got a gusher...the beer itself is a hazed golden orange color with a very large white head. A nice fruitiness on the nose, mostly tropical fruit type notes. Bread and cracker malts give it some substance and there is a lot of yeast in the aroma as well. The flavor isn’t quite as good as I would hope. It’s somewhat boozy and there’s a little bit of cardboard and metal to it. Still, some grass, fruit, malt, and even a little bit of spice, which are pleasant characteristics.

2.68/5  rDev -33.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours out a hazed, dark yellow toned body with a sudsy, bubbly, white head.

Smell: Sourish, funky notes atop the basic barley with touches of lemon rind and a floral touch blooming into a scent of menthol.

Taste: A faintly sweet taste of oven-crisped barley grains. Low, low hint of lemony citrus. Sliced tarnished fruits cut by unclean hands. Spiciness astringency akin to mentho-lyptus cough drops. Drying finish replete with muddled tastes.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Lightly carbonated, so don't let that sudsy head fool you.

Overall: I wasn't too fond at all of the flavor profile here and felt it just lacked pizazz as well as any cheerful effervescence.

Another split with rudzud.

Big foamy fizzy head 1 finger fades semi slowly with nice lacing, mostly clear golden pils color.

Nose funky saison, grainy, little doughy, big pear like fruit, mild saison spices, hint of funky, mild lemony funk like bit no Brett, hint of peppercorn, little green.

Taste is dry and grainy, little gritty, mild saison like funk and spices, hint of peppercorn, little pear juice but light. Mild bitterness with hint of earthy spicy hop note, hint of phenols too. Finish is dry and fairly bitter with more spicy hops, little saison spices, little fruit too, hint of saison funk.

Mouth is med bod, lots of fluffy carb.

Overall decent, nice saison with good pear notes, nice saison spices and funk, nice dry feel, but not quite as good as many of the others out there.

Cloudy amber in the tall chalice. Lots of carbonation with a big head at first, but turns out to be very long lasting on subsequent pours. Funky aroma.

A little of the brettanomyces tang. Overall it's full of the "meaty" flavor I associate with a good Biere de Mars. Fruity and peppery, with lots of fresh alfalfa, along with dry straw in the nose. Some flowers in the nose as well. a little sweet underneath the odd bitter flavors. Some touch of hops, but lots of the bitter yeast. The rustic style but quite drinkable and complex.

Bottle S7550. From the Olive Tree in Ocean Beach.
