Big thanks to harrymel for this one!

Cloudy honey gold body with a massive, swelling white head that fills the glass, leaving behind sexy lace all over the place.

Mellow but spicy yeast with an approachable fruity sweetness. A little pepper, a little white grape. A delicate beer with plenty of nuance.

Juicy white wine flavors layered with spicy pale fruits... a touch of bready malt characteristics lend a hand in keeping this one in balance. What a tasty summertime beer.

Thanks Harry!

pour is completely hazed lighter golden yellow. Nose is fairly nice, lighter on the farmhouse yeast notes, strong sweet ester notes of banana and light clove spice. Taste is a bit bigger, still lots of banana and light spice as the farmhouse note shines through a touch more but still very subtle. Very well carbonated with a light airy body and moderately dry finish.

Orangey cloudy appearance, head is dense, just a thin crown but loads of lacing left behind wherever it's been. Looks nice.

Smells funky, but so inviting. She's fresh (exciting). Peach, nectar, green apple, some nutmeg and cinnamon. Yeah, slight tartness to balance out an otherwise sweet and lovely aroma.

Taste is also sweet and spicy. Cinnamon with sultanas, cake batter upfront, then green apples and barnyard funk come through with a touch of coriander, grains of paradise and balsamic. Ends with this sweet, yet phenolic flavour in perfect harmony with the other components. Yum.

Foams a little in the mouth. A bit sharp, but drinks well.

A cracking saison. Funky, refreshing, sublimely complex and yet so much finesse. We have here an absolute weiner.

Poured into a tulip glass out of a 750ml bottle at the Albany Taproom. Review is from my notes.

Pours a fabulous orange-amber color complete with an enormous frothy four finger head that rises completely to the top of the the glass as the yeast gets poured in. Indeed, the initial golden color becomes completely coated in a cloudy, chilled haze of yeast as it trickles down in a thickened, heavily carbonated cascade of goodness. Lacing is absolutely fantastic, and sticks around in a cobwebby manner. Decent alcohol legs on this as well. The head maintains itself fully and strongly throughout consumption. Simply put, a beautiful looking saison.

The aroma is exactly what I'd expect this to be, except with several differences that take it to another level - at least in my experience. There's slight funky, sourish aromas aided by the wild yeast strains, but also an enormous fruity backbone of orange peel, lemons, and a straw, barnyard-like aroma that smells extremely rustic and brings me straight to a bucolic countryside somewhere. However, due to its freshness and crisp malts, as well as grassy hop profile, it's extremely mellow as well to whiff on occasionally in the face of its complexity.

The flavor is not nearly as explosive, but it still retains all of the elements picked up in the aroma. There's an initial combination of sour, wild fruity notes that come in, followed immediately by bready, thickened characteristics that are both from the strong yeasty character and grainy strength. The finish is definitely a little bit more bitter and zesty (continuing the orange peel sensation), but it's very balanced and all of the ingredients are well presented. There's definitely a focus on the yeast here, and we noted that the more yeast added to the glass changes the flavor substantially. By the finish, it was very chewy, almost. Still stupidly easy to drink, especially considering all of the factors that go into this thing.

Seriously one of the best saisons I've had in a while. This is a growing favorite style of mine due to its beers, when done correctly, to be so drinkable while retaining a lot of complexity. This is an ultimate kick-back beer, which could be used for formal or casual events. I really want to try more beers from Logsdon Farmhouse Ales in the near future.

A: What a beautiful pour, it's a rich golden haze with streams of carbonation bubbles racing one another up to join the giant 4 inches of white creamy and foamy head. As the head settles it leaves bold and beautiful lacing around the entire glass and a cratered foam top. The head never gives up - it continues to re-activate on each top up, if there's a better looking beer - I haven't seen it.

S: Tart crisp fruits of pineapples and peaches laced with fresh florals. The smell is clean and refreshing, peppered with seizon yeast finishing with the sweet fresh fruits.

T: Classic wheat seizon yeast with fruity tartness and citrus rind. Mid palette is peppery and earthy and finishes clean and refreshing with spicy cloves.

M: Big carbonation and crisp mouth feel with a pleasant dryness

O: Beautiful tart and dry flavours refreshing with citrus rinds. Enjoyable and refreshing, summer in a glass..I might be enjoying it way too much.
