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.

750 mL bottle poured into an oversize red wine glass at 4C, tasted at about 7C.
Rich, hazy golden straw and orange pour with thick voluptuous and beautifully dimpled 4+ finger head that is perfectly maintained, near perfect lacing.
Yeasty mandarin orange and tropical fruits dominate the nose. Some alcoholic warmth, subtle hints of acidity and fresh citrus oil.
Surprisingly high acidity considering the nose, but average for the style. Dry, old mandarin orange and woody coriander/spices. Light horse blanket yeast, but slightly green grassy hop-ishness dominate the lower end. Richly balanced with good depth but lacks satisfaction; I think it lacks a little bit of sweetness.
Crisp, medium weight body that is well carbonated before a marginally dry peak before a medium juicy finish with a yeasty bubble at the back of the palate.
There is something disjointed between the nose, taste and mouth feel. While each individually are good, the evolution from one to the other lack integration. The lacking of satisfaction may be due to the cold season, so I will try this again in the summer. A good drink but there several other saisons that I would much rather have as a similar or lower price.

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.

750 ml bottle, best by date of 06/2015, poured into a tulip glass.
A- Pours a clear golden color, topped with a gorgeous, fluffy four-finger white head, which recedes only very slowly and leaves a ton of excellent lacing behind it.
S- Yeast, spice, some light malt and a nice apple/pear fruit aroma.
T- Opens with light spice followed by yeast, some doughy malt, apple and pear fruit flavors and a mild lingering spiciness. Booze provides a very faint phenolic clove/medicinal flavor.
M- Medium-bodied, has a smooth feel with a dry finish.
O- Another excellent saison from Logsdon, it lacks the insane complexity and awesomeness of Seizoen Bretta, but this is still a very tasty, refreshing beer.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Lost Abbey chalice.
A- pours a dark honey color with a huge 3" off-white head. Big ring and bubbles of lacing remain on the glass.
S- big lemon zest, honey, lots of spices.
T- sweet honey and pale malts, lemons, spices, and crisp bitter hops.
M- medium body and high carbonation. Has some creaminess but the high carbonation takes away from the drinkability some.
O- good beer and nice saison. Drinkability has increased as this beer warmed.

Bottle #12842, best by 05/2015. I think this one came from FalconA, thanks man. This is my first Logsdon.
A - well, it gushed everywhere. Golden with huge white head.
S - Fruited spices with a note of tartness.
T - Spices, grass, light fruit and light tartness that creates a lemongrass flavor. The favors are subtle, a little watery. Some bitterness on the finish.
M - A little light for the style, but very easy to drink.
O - A pretty good Saison, especially for an American brewery. A shade below what I've found in the best of the USA Saisons.

Purchased from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA. Opened during our Fantôme tasting day with @LaitueGonflable and @tobeerornottobe, just to throw them off the scent. Upon uncapping, despite the gentle treatment and the solid chilling it received, it gushes out in waves onto my table-top, probably losing about a quarter of the bottle. Inauspicious start.
Colour is a cloudy but bright orange-yellow colour, with a very pronounced, and frothy, crackling head of white. Lacing is messy, anarchic and very full, when it forms. Decent weight to the body, with a nice amount of fine carbonation. Looks pretty good.
Nose has a solid, pleasant greenness to it, a touch of pepper and phenolics and a hint towards acidity. Some sweeter characters sit around on the back as well, perhaps the fragrance of fresh vanilla orchids, but overall it doesn't adapt and express itself an awful lot: it feels like it dumps everything it has on you in the aroma and then disappears. It's still pleasant, but you feel like it could have been excellent.
Taste is clean and mild, with some slight phenols on the back. Slight bite and a clean cider character, and not unpleasantly. Some phenols, and appleskin on the finish, which gives it a slightly biting and almost bitter finish. Perhaps a bit too sharp and bitter, in fact, which gives it a harshness on the back.
Feel is clean but quite light.
Overall, this is decent, but really not exciting, and perhaps even not that great a Saison. Their "Bretta" version is better. It also didn't explode all over my furniture.

Bottle from Made in Oregon.
Body is a cloudy mellow gold. Stiff, stubborn, popmarked off-white head.
Smells of pungent clove, bitter rind, & fruit juice. Dusty malt, leaves, alcohol, & Play-Doh on the backend. Unrelated, but the wax on the cap has this awesome ambergris scent to it.
Belgian, sticky tripel sort of sweetness. Pretzel-like malt. Lemon twang. Mellow yeast. Beer is pretty warm by now. A little mushroom. Leafy, shy, bitter finish. Frothy. Strong carbonation that faltered when I needed it.
A bit too sweet & heavy for me. The brett version thinned things out nicely though.
