A: Unfiltered, pale straw color, with some beautiful stark white head.

S: Tart, spicy pears, zesty, light, crisp and refreshing

T: Much smoother than I was expecting. Very light tart quality, but the light sweet, and smoothe malt character comes in and balances everything and leaves the mouth deliciously wet. Notes of lemons, not super strong on the spice end.

M: Super light, clean

O: Slight tart quality, smoothe body, light, zesty, refreshing

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

A - Pours an almost clear golden yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of wheat, grains, coriander, lemon zest, citrus hop, Belgian yeast, and some funk.

T - Starts off with some wheat, lemon zest, citrus hop, and coriander. Through the middle, some Belgian yeast and funk comes through with a bit of bready grains and some more spice and pepper. The finish is a mix of Belgian yeast, funk, spices, lemon zest, and coriander.

M - Medium-minus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and lightly funky finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nicely balanced Witbier with some good complexity. Great yeast flavor and funk.

Poured into a snifter. Label says Best Enjoyed by 06/2013.

A- Pours a hazy straw color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains decently before popping away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and an abundance of surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing slowly slides down the glass.

S- Crisp and Bretty with some sour undertones. Wheat in the backdrop provides a nice template for the overall profile. Mildly funky.

T- The wild yeast plays off the palate gently with a slightly acidic flavor and feel. Somewhat tart as the wheat brings everything together. Possibly some spice thrown in the mix as well. Notes of lemon, apple, pear and white grape.

M- Very crisp with the lightest bit of pucker. Light body and medium-high carbonation.

O- Very tasty spontaneously fermented take on the style. Thank you SatlyMalty for my first Logsdon as it is a good one.

A: Huge head, mix of tight cream and looser bubbles. Good retention and lacing. Golden-orange with nice carbonation trains.

O: Another nice offering from Logsdon. Very well done witbier, with a farmhouse edge.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 2/2014. Big gusher upon opening, but didn’t lose any of it. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a 3 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, apricot, grape, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast ester and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, apricot, grape, coriander, wheat, bread, oats, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon, apricot, light fruits, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and spice flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with very smooth, crisp, fairly creamy, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellent witbier! All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured into Lost Abbey tumbler.

Pours piss yellow, literally. Fluffy white head, massive carbonation bubbles streaming up from the bottom.

Aroma is very belgian wit like so the name is suited. Pale malts, coriander, lemon peel, faint banana, and faint clove. You also get a sweet citrus orchard smell, more mandarin like than orange.

Taste is classic to the style. You get the wheat, spices, fruity yeast esters, and slight mineral quality you get in the best belgian wits. Nothing stands out or is missing. A tasty brew.

Mouthfeel is light. Crisp, refreshing carbonation and finishes a bit bubbly.

Another awesome offering by Logsdon. Hard to find a better brewed "American" wit. That said, I'm more of a German wheat or hefeweizen fan than the belgian counterparts. Can't knock the beer for what it is though.

Bottle: Poured a super pale yellow color ale with a very large foamy head with perfect retention and incredible lacing. Aroma of light coriander with loads of dry Bretty notes with some wheat malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by a mix of coriander, wheat malt with loads of dry Brett notes. Body is light with incredible carbonation. Very refreshing with bone dry finish.

Bottle KW4838. Best by 04/2013.

Pours a pale, hazy gold topped with an enormous mound of fine white bubbles. Pretty much spot on for the style. Clumps of bubbles cling to the walls of the glass.

It mostly smells of clean, doughy wheat. I think there's some spicing, coriander and orange or lemon peel, in the mix, but it's pretty far in the background. Lightly grassy hops. There's a hint of funk and cleanly earthy yeast. A touch of band-aid. It's just an awfully light aroma. Very clean and subtle for the style.

The taste is similarly clean. It's mildly dry. There's still a fresh, sweet wheat flavor, but it sits lightly on the palate and doesn't linger. Some earthy funk from the yeast, particularly in the finish. More citrus and coriander. Apples, apricots, green grapes. Tasty.

Light, pleasant mouthfeel. I enjoy the even drier wits, like Anchorage Whiteout, but this is just a very nice beer to drink. It goes down smoothly. Carbonation is fine, plentiful and gentle.

This is a nice witbier. It's well made and drinkable. Judging by other reviews, it seems that the spicing isn't quite dialed in. I like this milder version, though. It comes off rather saison-like, which as someone who prefers saisons to wits, I don't mind. Anywho, it's a good beer.

Mid to high aroma, low carbonation, sweet honey with citrus, sour tart but not chalky.

Shared a taster on-tap as past of a flight at the brewery; Logsdon Farmhouse Ales, Hood River, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com
