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.
