look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

750ml bottle. Best before 11/2015

Appearance: Pours a golden honey color with 4 fingers of a slightly off white head. Body is slightly hazy with some very fine sediment. Lots of visible carbonation as well.

Smell: Pear, peppercorns, clove, lemon rind, bubblegum, slight grassiness. Really nice.

Taste: Lemon grass, cracker and doughy malt, yeast driven spiciness, pear, grass, light floral hop presence that leads to a very mild bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel. High levels of fine still relatively gentle carbonation. Super dry finish.

Overall: I've yet to have a disappointing beer from Logsdon, and this one is no exception. Not their best offering, but still worth picking up.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Bottle No. 2832, Best by Dec 2015.

A real nicey peachy orange colored body. quite opaque and solid colored. The beer is topped with a bright white creamy three finger head and, whipped up retention with rings of lace and clumping. Not much noticeable carbonation through this unfiltered body.

Nose is interesting. A good hint of peppery brett, and a strange almost slight goat cheese like aroma at first. Exploring give much more fruit qualities of the pear, and peach and nectarine stone like fruit quality as well.

Palate brings a good classic saison character. Big farmhouse dryness and brett pepper in the mid palate. Fruit angle washes clean but not with much distinction on the finish. Mouthfeel is pretty solid and standard, with minimal distracting carbonation. Small hints of juiced fruit punch like character.

It's similar to the Bretta but it's fruit character seems much more played down. Pretty solid saison either way regardless.

750ml bottle best by 1/2017

Pours a hazy pale straw color with creamy white head. Smells like a farmhouse ale - bright, earthy, citrus but also with a distinct honey like sweetness. The nose is very fruity - apple juice, pear, and tropical fruit.

The fruit which brings a hint of sweetness is surrounded by a pleasant earthy and citrusy bitterness. The sweetness starts in the nose and the finish is fairly dry. There is a slight underlying tartness but it is not sour.

Mouthfeel is light bodied yet creamy. The carbonation is on the lighter side.

Clean and refreshing yet very flavorful and interesting. Very nice take on a saison!

Pours a straw color gold. Sunshine and shining as if you had put the sun in the glass. Fat head of sticky white foam that leaves lace. Nose is lovely. Lemon grass, lemon peel, stone fruit like mango, a bit of yeasty funk but not too much and a woody airy lightness. There is honey on this nose and it smells like when the honey turns solid int he jar. Sugary but still full. Floral like flower petals. sweet and not bitter. Taste is lovely. It has the underpinnings of sour on an explosion of fruit. Stone fruit, apple, pear, lemon. Tart but mysteriously so. Lightly woody yeast like sweet fresh air. If you had stepped outside your door to a meadow that took up your entire field of vision ti would smell like this beer. Drinks with champagne dryness, a perfect light and ticklish carbonation, a soft malt with bread, cracker and honey. A fruitiness that is endless and a bit of sweet grass to finish this one dry and with room for plenty of hearty food. The floral on this one is brilliant and so is the tartness that brings you to the edge of your palate and then backs off so that you stay satisfied and not regretful.

This beer will grace your table with a not so subtle perfection. Why should it be modest? Grilled meats? Fried chicken? Meat and cheese platter? crusty bread and greens? The honey in this one is inescapable. It teeters decadently between soft bread and crisp cracker but it has honey and it stimulates the senses. Finishes dry and with a residual taste of honey and that light soft malt. Just damn pretty is what it is. It is more than the sum of it's parts. It evolves in the glass to be a welcome bit of joy in a world that goes on way too long like this review.

Cloudy yellow, obvious wheat, white puffy head.

Smells grainy and spicy, rustic.

Surprised I can place the pear juice. Bready, hardly floral, sorta sweet, definitely earthy and spicy, possibly coriander and pepper. Tartness isn't a bother. Delightful summer beer.

Crisp and dry.

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.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a quarter inch head that fades to leave nice lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of pear juice, light peppercorns, light must, very delicate.

T - Taste is very delicate, light pear and sweeter malts, strong phenolic towards that
middle, the pear is nice and lightly juicy.

M - Mouthfeel is strongly carbonated, refreshing.

O - Overall this beer was nice, very drinkable, would like some more pear though. Alcohol is hidden nicely.

Misanthrope sent me this one a couple months back, thanks a million Scott! Logsdon's Seizoen fills the tulip with an orange the color of a sunrise. There's a touch of murkiness but the body glows when backlit and is consistent throughout. The head is pure white and easily grows to three fingers on the pour before settling into a dense, meringue like foam. Sticky patchwork lacing coats the glass.

A wonderful dew heavy fruitiness explodes from the glass. Gritty pear, underipe peach, and tart green apple all ooze from the glass in that order of intensity. There's an all encompassing mustiness that's reminiscent of wildflowers. He malt base is light and softly sweet bringing out some graham cracker sweetness.

Each aspect of the nose is well represented in the flavor. Those orchard fruits all wash over the palate with green apple leading the way, that fades mid palate while the gritty pear and sweet peach continues. The pear lingers on the swallow from what I'm assuming is the added juice. All of this sits atop the graham cracker base. The mushiness is more subdued than the nose led on. If I have a minor gripe it's that there is a little more residual sweetness than I'd like.

The mouthfeel on this Seizoen is better dialed in than on Seizoen Bretta. The bubbles are aggressive creating a lively, frothy mouthfeel that pushes through quickly and awakens the tastebuds. There's a fruity sweetness that lingers but is nowhere near cloying against the light body.

This is another winner from Logsdon. They do a great job with Saison. This version may be a touch sweeter than I'd like but it takes nothing away from the overall enjoyment or drinkability. The fruitiness pops and lingers. I'm a fan. Thanks again, Scott!

Banana yellow body with a huge foamy bright white head poured into a tulip glass. The nose is estery with some floral notes from a field in late summer. Some baking spices in the background as well. The taste is a very belgian saison style. Loads of those baking spices, floral and fruity but not quite full blown banana flavor, and a bit boozy. This toes the line to me and is just this side of a hefe. It's well made like all their beers, but I'd rather have the bretta.

Thanks to bcolton for sharing. Pours a hazy, dull orange with a frothy, bright white head embedded with tiny bubbles. Nose expresses yeast, citrus, coriander and a trace of ethanol. Taste consistent with nose with a hint of spice. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body, but closer to light, with a pleasant, even carbonation and a slightly creamy texture. Overall, not a particularly funky saison, but a great beer nonetheless. I continue to be quite impressed with this brewery.

Picked up this bottle in August I think, cracked open Nov 8th.

A: Cloudy, golden-yellow with head that will be talked about for generations to come. At least half the bottles of Logsdon I've opened have volcano'd, this one only a tiny bit. Even with a slow pour on the side of the glass you get 3-4 fingers of puffy, off-white head that has structure like whipped cream - you can sail it an inch above the rim of your glass no problem!

S: Wheat, straw, clove, pepper, and last and probably also least is fruit notes of apricot and peach

T: Spicy, orange fruits again. Great malts - bready but not heavy.

M: Carbonation is plentiful and welcome, given everything going on. Ever so slightly dry.

O: Not as complex as the Bretta but a little more refreshing too - depends what you're going for. I think there are saisons that are 90% as good at 50% the price, but for a no-compromise saison I can't really fault it.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 12/2015. Pours lightly hazy bright golden amber color with a 3 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, peach, pear, apple, pineapple, grape, pepper, clove, honey, bread, hay, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast notes with malt sweetness; and good strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, peach, pineapple, apple, grape, pepper, clove, honey, bread, hay, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, peach, pineapple, light fruits, pepper, clove, honey, bread, hay, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of fruity/spicy yeast flavors with moderately balanced malt sweetness; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic saison style. All around awesome balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

Best by 11/2015

Pours a clear, pale golden orange color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a 2.5 finger frothy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting ring. Looks a bit over carbonated but has good retention with streaks of soapy lace left behind.

Earthy, musty aroma with a strong farmhouse funk character along with zesty spice, bread-y yeast, light fruit and citrus. Grass, straw and barnyard followed by pepper, bread, apple, pear, citrus rind and pale malt. Slightly floral/perfume-like with a touch of grassy saaz hops as well with some mango and papaya countering the funky/earthy saison notes. Inviting aroma that smells true to style, unlike the Bretta version which is kind of a disaster.

On the fuller end of medium bodied with tight carbonation and a strong earthy farmhouse flavor up front that lingers over the subtle hops, peppery spice, light fruit and pale malts into a dry finish. A bit over carbonated with champagne-like effervescence. Slight resinous, grassy hops compliment the farmhouse yeast giving off a dry, slightly funky and bitter flavor that's countered by spicy pepper/coriander, biscuit and sweeter fruit notes toward the finish, notably apple, pear and light grapes. Subtle booziness but the ABV is decently concealed making this beer pretty easy to drink. Overall, I enjoyed this beer much more than the Bretta version but it didn't really stand out as a particularly interesting interpretation of the style. I'm glad to have tried it but wouldn't seek it out again.

Enjoyed out of a brown 750 mL bottle with a beeswax seal around the neck and cap. No bottling date, but it does say "Best by" 06/2015. Poured into a Boulevard Smokestack Series tulip glass, after having to take some time to get the gushing head under control.

Appearance - Murky glowing orange with a coppery hue and amber highlights where the light shines through. Crazy pillowed off-white head with an golden twinge, a good three fingers (or more) thick. This bottle has been sitting in my cellar for a good two months with zero agitation, so I'd say this one is a tad overcarbonated.

Smell - I get that distinct funk that I usually associate with brett, so I don't know if I'm mis-identifying or if Logsdon puts brett in the regular "Seizoen" and not just the "Seizoen Bretta". Perhaps it's only bottle-conditioned with brett or the way they use it in the two beers is different because it definitely tastes brett-infused. Other aromas are light fruit and phenols, as well as some bready yeast characteristics. Having had the Seizoen Bretta I'm not sure if I could separate it from this one with a blind smell test.

Taste - Pleasant spicy fruity characteristics, with orange zest and faint bready sweetness, like butter croissant. The tartness that one expects from brett is not as pronounced in this version as with the Bretta version, which allows the fruit and spice to shine. Would like a little bit more funk, however. More fruity than funky for sure.

Mouthfeel - Heavy, overbearing carbonation that is a pain to open/pour, but actually works to break up the power of the fruitiness. Body is medium to light and the finish is ultimately dry.

Overall, a solid example of the style that is very delicate but still has some heft to it. Not one that I'll seek out at great cost, but would definitely consider buying again if the opportunity presented itself.

Poured from 750mL bottle into my Schlafly tulip. Bottle S22170, best by 5/2016.

Appearance: medium silvery-gold with a nice haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is two fingers of pillowy white foam with good retention. I think it looks quite nice.

Smell: floral, grassy and a little spicy, although not terribly funky. I can really smell the pear juice, but it's not in any way overdone. Fruit juice in this kind of beer can easily go awry, but in this case they've done a good job in keeping things balanced.

Taste: interesting; quite a bit earthier than the aroma. I'm getting a biscuity, bready character from the malt, but this plays well with the grassy, slightly funky elements in the flavor. Definitely not a normal saison, but earthy and appealing.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and a creaminess which jumps right out and takes over. Big, satisfying and persistent. Bam!

Overall: this is a very good, well-crafted beer. It's one which doesn't employ my favorite flavor profiles, and indeed challenges me with elements which I don't normally like very much, but which appeals to me nonetheless. Kudos!

Pale golden body and a big fluffy white head. Beautiful looking pour that just begs you to take some big gulps.

Fruity up front with nice tropical notes but plenty of earthy and peppery spice mixed in as well. Hints of banana and citrus pair well with a more cider-like apple note. These notes carry over from the nose and onto the palate, but are a bit more subdued as the farmhouse yeast notes work their magic with a pleasant peppery kick and some musty/earthy flavors.

Mouthfeel is crisp and bubbly yet rather full. Plenty refreshing for a nice summer evening.

Aggressive 8 oz pour into a 14oz Ale Apothecary chalice.

A - Gorgeous hazy peach middle with fade to yellowish on the edges. Vigorous, tightly bubbled foam that lasted at least 5 mins before fading slowly down the glass, leaving spidery legs behind.

S - One of the best things about this beer. Almost sweet-smelling, caramelized pear, mild funky esters. very faint banana, mango. Absolutely stunning and unique.

T - Big fruits. peaches, pear, apple skin, and white pepper. Light bready cracker malt. This is most certainly not a bone-dry cracker/spice fest (though perhaps it would be with age).

M - Really effervescent, exploding my tastebuds and flooding my sinus with aroma after each sip. A very drinkable mid-body. Slightly sweet, but not cloying.

O - So, so nice. One of the more unique, focused, delicious takes on the Saison style, in the world, but especially the US. The Bretta gets the props (deservedly, for the same price), but this saison is without parallel in its style. Need to age one and see what would happen. It's too hard!

Thanks to angrybabboon for sharing the bottle. Review adapted from notes taken 7/14/2013.

Appearance: Super hazy gold. Head is massive and pillowy-white. Creamy with crazy retention. Lively carbonation. Bubbly with sheets and notches of chunky lacing. Oh yeah.

Smell: Lemon and powdery barnyard. Lemon zest and flesh. Earthy with some musty damp fruitiness. Pear, apple core, and generic mealy fruit. Esters are pronounced but not super aggressive. Fresh grass and hay. Mega yeasty. Some melon. Sweet, light bready malts pushing some cracker. Fresh. A touch of Belgian spice adds some clove and ripe banana.

Taste: Banana and clove. Tons of yeast spiciness. Light citrus hopping. Some light bready malts. So much ripe banana. Peach and grass and hay. Musty basement. Wet and dark with some lemon zest. A hint of funk adds a nice backing to the more overt Belgian influence. Some pepper and a hint of almost raw honey. A solid balance of American farmhouse with Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body. Crisp, yes wet and smooth on the start. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: In this case, Bretta is betta'.

It's a damn fine Saison. A bit too heavy on the Belgian influence, which ultimately pushes out some of the softer flavors I expect from the style. Maybe I was ruined by Seizoen Bretta, but this just wasn't quite there. It's good, great even, but not necessarily something I'll remember through the years.

Review from notes taken 7/14/13

Split with Goblinmunkey7

Appearance: Pours hazy, somewhat cloudy, dark gold with some dark orange tones - giant, creamy, off-white head with impressive retention - nice lacing, leaves a solid wall

Smell: Some nicely funky, yeasty, and farmhouse aromas - light, fruity pears and some other fruity esters - nice funkiness, almost brett-like farmhouse - yeasty, Belgian-like smells - light citrus and some tart lemon

Taste: Light fruit and some refreshing farmhouse funk - tart, juicy lemons, some other light fruits, with a lot of pears - powdery, lightly funky yeast with some Belgian weirdness - medium bitterness and some citrus - some light breadiness and earthiness

Mouthfeel: Medium body, extremely smooth, great carbonation

Overall: Great, but best with its dear friend Bretta

This is a very nice saison, but I I guess I got spoiled by having Seizoen Bretta first. And this is not better than Bretta. In comparison, it's kind of missing some tartness and dryness. Definitely worth drinking, though.

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.

750ml brown glass bottle with colorful label art and beeswaxed pressure cap acquired at a local SoCal bottle shop for $10.99 and served into a Mitchells of Lancaster flared stem-tulip in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Expectations are high given the brewery and its reputation. Body number: S 13404. Best by: 07/2015. 7.5% ABV confirmed.

Served cold, straight from the fridge, and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger wide head of white colour. No real creaminess. Nice thickness. Good (~6-7 minute) retention. No lacing as the head recedes. Spotty.

Body colour is a cloudy lemon-yellow. Translucent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Overall, it's par for the style. Not unique or special. No overt flaws are noticeable.

Sm: Lemon fruit esters. Lemon zest. Lemongrass. Honey. Pilsner malts. Clove. Grassy. Complementary floral hops. Straw. Crackery malts. Maybe some white pepper. Lightly grainy, with some subtle spiciness. Some brettanomyces funk. Light apple and pear. A very soft, pleasant aroma. No alcohol is detectable. I'm really looking forward to trying it.

T: Straw, clean barley. Lemon zest. Lemongress. Esters. Pleasantly citrusy. Light brettanomyces yeast and accompanying funkiness. Crackery malts. Clove. White pepper. Complementary floral hops. Lightly grainy. Some apple and pear. Doughy. Balanced and enjoyable, but not as complex or subtle as the best beers in the style.

Mf: Soft, smooth, wet, and refreshing. A biteen too thick for the style. Good presence on the palate. Not heavy or overbearing. Full-bodied. Light. Complements the flavour profile nicely.

Dr: Very drinkable. A solid saison from Logsdon. I'd get it again if it wasn't so expensive. A solid domestically brewed saison. Hides its ABV well. Quite pleasant and enjoyable, but not Logsdon's best beer. If you need to scratch a saison itch, this definitely won't disappoint. I'll really enjoy finishing this bottle. Good stuff.

Bought this one in Waterbury at a grocery store I think. From notes.

A - Great colour with a cloudy, light golden. Good carbonation coming up to a two finger fluffy white head. Nice creamy finger of retention and a great wall of lace all around. Looks like apple cider with the yeast added.

S - Orange, mild sweet baking spice. Bubblegum, wheat. Similar to a Hefe. Smelled good. Lot's more orange and banana with the yeast added.

T - More of the same. More sweet spice, some barnyard character. Banana and bubblegum. Not really complex.

M - Strong carbonation, medium to full body. Creamy. A little spicy finish lingering for quite a while.

O/D - Really wasn't anything special to me. Spice was something that was too strong for my tastes. Aside from that there a few good features, but certainly nothing special. Decent, but a bit of a letdown. Too similar to a Hefe.

a: clear golden yellow. reminds me of fields o' grain. large 4 finger (probably would have been more if the glass were larger) head.

s: pears, green apple, wheat, nice bready and spicy yeast. sweet citrus zest, sweet malt with some earthiness. smells really nice.

t: follows the nose. the dominant flavors i'm picking up are ripe pears, sweet malt, green apple, and a nice yeasty component. slightly floral. pepper spice, clove on the back end. finishes crisp and slightly dry. really smooth

m: lighter side of medium, with quite a lot of carbonation - which works well. it helps the sweeter flavors pop to harmonize well with the yeast and spice.

o: this is definitely a refreshing beer that you will enjoy drinking. its really smooth and doesn't feel heavy at all - definitely a nice summer drinker. sit on your porch and enjoy nature whilst drinking this.
