750ml bottle into tulip. Second release, best by 01/2019.

A: As with every other bottle of Logsdon I’ve opened, this was a gusher. Or at least it would have been had I not bled some foam off the cap. Anyway, this beer pours a hazy dirty orange color with a fluffy and thick bright white head that faded into a very fuzzy and thick film and collar. A sheet of thick lace was left down the glass.
S: Huge juicy notes of fresh peach mix beautifully with earthy, peppery and musty notes of brett and damp oak. Both sweet and juicy, dry and spicy.
T: Earthy, yeasty and spicy flavors of brett with musty, dry and woody notes of oak. The finish is slightly funky and slightly bitter. I get a touch of acidic lemon, pear, and stinky cheese as well. The peach is there but not as juicy as the nose. There are flavors of peach pits and other stone fruits in the finish and aftertaste, as well as buttery oak and gritty tannins. Peach is sweet at times, but the oaked saision and brett balance most of it out.
M: Medium-full body, airy fluffy and soft carbonation, with a drying, lightly bitter, and fluffy mouthfeel. Drinks very well. Double digit alcohol is masked extremely well.
O: One of the better saisons I’ve had. Fruity, funky, spicy, earthy, buttery and dry. I can see why this is so highly regarded. Having never had this aged, I’d still say drink fresh. The brett would develop further, but at the cost of the peach. Wish I had more. Cheers.

On To The Aroma!

Having been brewed with Brett, there is just enough of those characteristics that make me say “oooh yeah, I smell the brett.” At the same time, the peaches are the star of the show and definitely take center stage. Juicy peach, lactic acid, faint citrus juice, wisps of alcohol and a little bit of oak. After I had carefully poured a few glasses to get a taste, I sloshed the beer in the bottle so I could mix the yeast and fruit sediment up and really get that ‘rustic’ flavor that I love in Saisons. Yehp, that definitely gave a little more ‘funk’ to the aroma as a whole. Absolutely amazing.

On To The Flavor!

The flavor is where the show really starts. Crisp mouthfeel and prickly carbonation coupled with a pleasant tartness makes this a beer I can’t put down. It has that quintessential Saison yeast flavor with grain, bubble gum, lemon and a little banana on the finish when it warms. Again, once aroused the sediment in the bottom of the bottle, the Saison characteristics really come through. As it warms, the alcohol gently numbs the palate. However, at no point in my imbibing do I taste alcohol. Brett shines a little more once the beer has warmed and had the sediment aroused.

On To The Verdict!

Honestly, this is right up there with West Ashley. While West Ashley is a Wild Ale and features a more ‘sour’ flavor profile, this beer is not far behind in terms of sour Saisons and really acts as a quintessential example of the ingenuity and creativity of brewers these days. Mr. Logsdon, if you are reading this, you have made this boy very happy!
Cheers!

Bottle pour at the tasting at la casa de dirtinabottle.

Pours a murky juicy-looking light orange. Fizzy one inch head, not much lacing.

Smells incredibly peachy, fresh, slightly tart peaches, along with some lemon and acidity.

One dimensional taste, but a good taste nonetheless. Peach and sour tartness. Some lemons, too, maybe, tiny bit of oak.

Very highly carbonated, cuts down on some on the pucker factor. Light to medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel.

My jump into the deep end of the sour pool continues with these guys, this was also pretty good.

I've been hunting this one for a long time, so it's with great enthusiasm that I review this beer. Poured out of a 750 mL bottle with a wax-dipped neck and cap and marked with an enjoy by date of 01/2019. Served in a Boulevard Smokestack series tulip glass.

Appearance - A beautiful, cloudy amber orange-yellow hue with faint straw highlights in places. Atop the body sits a frothy two-finger head of off white with a yellowish twinge to it. Retention is excellent, taking several minutes to finally dissipate to an uneven layer of flim and pockets of thicker foam across the surface. Sheets of silky lacing remain for awhile before converting to more mottled streaks of sticky deposits on the side of the glass.

Smell - A great blend of ripe, fruity notes from the peaches and the funky twang from the brett. There are more subtle notes of light sourdough, but this one is all fruit and brett. Some musty, barnyard funk and peach pure as well as faint oak tannins and perhaps a kiss of grassy hops providing some balance. Really, just an intoxicatingly good beer--I could sit here and smell it for hours, but then I'd miss out on the...

Taste - Initial explosion of peach flesh and tartness that induces a pinch in the tastebuds at the front of my cheeks and on the tip of my tongue. That initial bit of sour fades away leaving notes of wet hay and funk with an underlying dryness alongside wood and an herbal hop bitterness. There are some white win-like characteristics as well, giving the impression of drinking a fresh-made peach bellini (sparkling wine and peach puree). I can't emphasize enough how much the fresh peaches come through in this beer.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and moderate-to-high carbonation, providing a dynamic mouthfeel with notes of prickly tartness and a drying finish.

Overall, this is just a fantastic beer. It brings to mind just how disappointing it is that brewing with fresh fruit is such an expensive proposition, because when done well, beers with fresh fruit are hard to beat. This one is no different, and whoever thought of adding that distinctive yeast known as Brettanomyces to a peach-infused beer was a genius. The natural characteristics of the fruit work well with the funk of the brett. I will likely buy this every time I have the opportunity, as it is outstanding.

Thanks to John for the bottle! I love Seizoen Bretta, and I've been looking to try this one for a while.

Popped open the bottle, and found some red-brown residue around the top. No harm. Decanted into a Logsdon's cervoise. Medium amber color, slightly hazy, with a thin but well-retaining off-white head that left a few dots of lacing on the glass. Obvious peach in the nose, but I actually got more fresh saisoniness, wet grass, brett, floral notes. Crisp and clean on the palate, syrupy peach, damp wood, brett, toasted wheat, with a slight sour profile, and a finish of herbal and floral hops. Mouthfeel was crisp and complex, body was medium. Didn't taste or feel anywhere near 10%ABV, though as it warmed, a little essence of neutral alcohol came out in the taste. Great beer overall, and I'd definitely like to get some more.

Word to the wise: despite what the bottle may say, this is not a beer to be aged. Peach fades fast, so drink this fresh! Age the base beer instead.

2014 Vintage. So happy I snagged a bottle of this...apparently only a few cases made it to the central valley this year. Pours a hazy golden color with a large white head that goes down fairly quickly. Scent is AMAZING! Packed with wild yeast and peaches. Especially as this beer warms, the peach aroma builds up and the brett comes out beautifully. Taste is a little more tart than the aroma would imply...which is never a bad thing. Peach skin and funky farmhouse flavors up front. Slightly tart peach flavors with great farmhouse flavors and barnyard hay. This beer is not spicy at all... straight up fruit, barnyard, and funk. So damn tasty. The peach comes out more and more with each sip. Mouthfeel is a bit dry and full-bodied. Drinkability is very high, as the ABV is well-hidden. This 10% farmhouse ale is not boozy in the slightest bit. Overall, Logsdon never seems to disappoint, especially with this one. Such an amazing farmhouse ale. The peaches shine brilliantly in this one. Believe the hype.

Had to see for myself what the hype was about. First shot at it was at the Logsdon tasting room.

Smell reminded me of peaches and cream.

First sip was alot more sour than I had expected, but once i got further into it, the flavors melded together much better. Smooth peach and funk mixed perfectly. You get the vanilla and oak in there.

The 10% alcohol that's stated to have, hidden very very well.

Overall, never had anything like this before and it definitely lives up to the hype however i've heard that this year's batch was better fresh than last years. Left the farmhouse with plenty of bottles to see how they age.

Thanks to ? for sharing, and to Dan for hosting :thumbup:
Quick review from written notes.

This was the latest batch that came out this year. Hazy orange with a compact head and some spotty lace around the edges, thin veil across the surface.

Nice subtle peachy aroma, pleasantly fruit forward. Increases as it warms.

Moderately sour upfront, lightly bitter in the aftertaste. Definite peach taste and aroma, seemed a little more prevalent in the taste. Overall a great wild ale, Brett wasn't all that expressive but you can't go wrong with a peach sour ale, imho.

2014 vintage poured into Teku.

Poursa murky orange much like peach purée mixed with filtered orange juice. Big tan head that lingers for a good while. Leaves a sticky film of bubbles on the top edges of the Teku.

Aroma is a bit subdued, it might be due to the cold temp. But there is plenty of juicy peach, guava, mango, strawberry, some bready malt, and a touch of that brettanomyces funk but barely there as the peach addition has taken over on this one.

The palate explodes. Literally, if this isn't the peachiest beer I have had then Clinton really never did inhale. I've had peach beers before and none have expressed the flavor as good as this one. Holy mackerel! Peach for days with an oak, musty mineral brett dry finish. Yes there is sweetness but it flows deep mid palate and comes crashing to a stop on the finish. A low tartness jumps out pre-finish which overwhelms that sweetness and by the time it's all said and done you are left with a pretty dry aftertaste. Upfront though it's like biting into a juicy peach mixed with lemon juice and tart pear cider. Awesome stuff.

Mouthfeel is crazy good. Someone complained about it being watery, well let me just say, they're crazy. It is a saison and should not have a medium or thicker body. This one sits between the heavier side of light and lighter side of medium. Makes the beer super drinkable. Awesome carbonation which can be a problem when Saisons go in barrels. Not here, ample carbonation that lifts some of those uber juicy flavors away assisting in keeping it from becoming cloying.

My final thoughts? Damn right deserves the hype that it gets and the only problem with this beer is that there is not enough. Logsdon does a good job in trying to spread the love but if you don't jump on this you get left out. This easily stands in my top three farmhouse ales (not sours) that I've had along with the LITTLE talked about Little Lobster On the Prairie and mega whale out of Hill Farmstead, Biere De Norma.

Having a saison showdown this week and this overshadows Prairies Eliza5beth pretty substantially. Still have a few more which may stack up against this, Convivial Suarez and Le Saissonier coming next.

An orchard in a glass. Lovely, fragrant nose that is pure, high summer peaches. The color is a golden amber, not unlike a Bellini. The taste is very fruit forward -- one of the biggest peach-flavored beers I've had this side of Chez Monus. You can almost feel the peach juice dribbling down your chin. Absolutely lovely. The sweet peach is firmed up by a bit of Brett funkiness and the barrel oak. This is as close to summer as you are going to get after a long, cold winter. Great beer, but I think I still might prefer the Seizoen Bretta a bit more. The subtleties of the saison are drowned out a bit by the intense peachiness. Still, a great beer.

The beer pours a honey amber color with excellent head retention and considerable laciing. On the nose, this beer really smells terrific. You definitely get a lot of peach (canned and fresh), but there's also some noticeable fruit cocktail, a hint of vanilla, and sort of "bretty" buttery funk aroma. The beer doesn't smell as if it's going to be all that sour, and in fact it wasn't. Otherwise, the flavor profile replicated the nose, but the balance in this beer is nothing short of amazing. There is a hint of sour, but it's just enough to counter the modest sweetness in this beer. Drinkability is just off the charts. Each sip begs for another one, and before I even knew what I was doing, I found myself reaching for the bottle to pour myself another glass. Alcohol is incredibly well integrated into the flavor profile. I did a double take when I saw the 10%.... there is no way I would have guess it was that high. Mouthfeel is fairly full with a long, lightly sour peach finish. However, there is nothing at all heavy or tiring about this beer on the palate, and this beer is just a joy to drink.

Excellent stuff.... even the usual out of the way places in town where I can usually find hard to find beers (MofC on Terwilliger and in West Linn, for example) were sold out of this beer, even though I'm sure they just got their supply in this past week. After trying this beer, I now have a better understanding why.

4.44/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- A tiny bit gushed out of the bottle before I poured, so be careful. Pours up a good bunch of head which has excellent retention. The head is a pure cotton-white while the body is a hazy and dull pale amber which appears brighter when held up to the light. A good amount of lacing with slight patches of sheeting.

Nose- There are definitely peaches used in the making of this beer. Very well rounded and very smooth with light notes of other stone fruits like apricots. Some apple and banana and a slight note of pears. Redolent without being overbearing. Swirling doesn't add anything to the picture.

Taste- Starts off with a front of peach that promises to be quite powerful but fades rather quickly. Slight woodiness from the hop bitterness. Slight funk and straw on the finish. Very tasty but not exactly the peach bomb I was expecting. Slight tartness and faint hints of acetic acid. Some cherry and other stone fruits plus a mild note of pears. This is very smooth and very well rounded to the point that this beer has incredible balance integration. No hint at all of the 10%. Very easygoing and delicate. Light barnyard, mushrooms, stinky cheese, straw, and armpit around the edges. I wish these aspects had more presence because that would definitely give this beer more character. Slight oak but this beer is mostly about the peach. Never cloying but always present, its presence makes it a must for peach lovers. Really good beer that shows inclinations of being great. No flaws at all and extremely drinkable. Such sublimity that I think it can be considered a great beer. This is a beer that really grows on you. Some hints of orange and lemon make this somewhat mimosa like or what I imagine a mimosa made with peach juice would be light. Nice dry finish really cleans up the flavor profile well. The pear juice works perfectly in concert with the peach notes.

Mouthfeel- So light bodied that this tends toward airy. Light carbonation works really well for this beer. It doesn't make your tongue tingle but there is a mild and smooth effervescence that works well for this beer.

Drinkability- Extremely drinkable to the point of being dangerous. It's so good that it's easy to ignore how good it is. Fortunately, it's pretty hard to get or I might being spending 20 bucks a pop on these frequently.

Overall- Great beer that is definitely worth the 20 bucks. I would definitely take one of these over any Cascade beer (not that they're necessarily comparable but in regard to the price point). Reminds me a lot of La Fin du Monde which also doesn't have great complexity but is exceptional at the few things it does do. A must try if you can get your hands on it. While I'm scoring this lower than what I scored Seizoen Bretta, I'm under the impression that this is a better beer. I will have to sample the regular Bretta again to compare.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears a hazy orange with a solid white cap 2+ fingers strong that is composed of large bubbles and holds seemingly throughout the entire duration.

The aroma contains earthy brett upfront with a light fruit essence like apricot/peach but without getting sweet smelling. There is some funk and oak that blend into the brett that almost imparts a feel of sulfur.

The taste includes plenty of wheat and faded fruit that is like peach/apricot skins. It is somewhat carbonic and lightly mineral filled just like the base saison (which I wasnt crazy about.)

This is a lightly watery feeling brew with an abundance of carbonation. It is sadly cabonic an overall just ok. I have tried to approach this brewery with positive anxious thoughts but everytime I try their goods, im left underwhelmed. I would drink this again if given the opportunity but really, I dont see this as anything special or worth going out of your way for. Perhaps this was an off bottle?

Review #500. Served at the January tasting at the Taproom. Thanks to Darren for bringing this! One of my top wants, which for some reason has been impossible to find every time it's released. Poured out of a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. I believe this is last year's release.

Logsdon is known in my mind for making nothing but gorgeous looking farmhouse ales, and this is no exception, in my mind. Looks a lot like fresh squeezed peach juice (or a combination of stone fruit, in general). Orange amber, with a thickness and cloudiness from the sediment and yeast, as well as a fluffy bone white head that covers the top of the glass in a graceful, imposing manner. Loses a bit of head retention over time, but leaves some sticky foam at the sides of the glass, thankfully enough. Really appetizing looking overall.

Not what I expected at all at the nose - while the stone fruit is displayed predominantly but the addition of peaches, as well as the malt profile at hand, the Brett has definitely made its mark on the beer in a funky yet strange appealing manner. At first, there's a blast of peaches, nectarines, and apricots (oh God, my mouth is actually watering as I write this), and then barnyard funkiness from the Brett, displaying notes of wet hay, some leather, and cheese. Lots and lots of cheese, particularly the goat cheese that stone fruit is often stuffed in. By a mere chance, apricot goat cheese happens to be one of my favorite things, so this isn't too off putting for me. Finishes tart on the nose, with an astringency from the yeast. Very wild, and very rustic, but I would have never guessed the alcohol was so high here.

The flavor is even funkier and intense, but it's really one of the most memorable American wild ales I've had in quite a while. Strong notes of peach concentrate, apricots, orange, and light pine meld with the funky qualities from the Brett, showing big cheese rind notes, leather, and wet hay. The oak qualities work their magic at the end and hold up the fort rather well, displaying lactic sweet flavors, as well as light tobacco and vanilla. This, in turn, accentuates a sweeter creamier factor that rounds out the Brett and gives the impression of eating actual goat cheese with stuffed dried peaches and apricots. The finishing touch of baking soda (a classic from Logsdon, as seen in their Saison Brett) cleanses the palate and gets you ready for each sip. Sweet, tart, funky, slightly saline, and creamy all at the same time. The carbonation is phenomenal here, done in the same vein as a sparkling wine. Gentle and enticing - very complex, and very refreshing.

This is a 20 proof beer?? No way - I could easily down an entire bottle of this without complaint. I would love to have a fresher bottle and open it right away, but the Brett here seems to build on some wonderful, creative aspects towards the beer's development. This could easily be the best beer Logsdon has made so far, and it's impressive that they've made a beer of this caliber so drinkable, and readily available for any occasion, as well. Excellent stuff!

This beer is exactly what it says it is.

Reviewers that are looking for a very tart wild ale will think that this doesn't live up the hype, but this beer never claims that. This is a saison with brett, crammed into an oak barrel and then fermented with peaches and then pear juice.

The nose is perfectly fragrant with peaches and brett.

The fruit comes through perfectly and plays harmoniously with the brett.

This beer is so delicate, that you have to close your eyes while you sip so that your senses are opened to the mastery that this liquid is.

To me, this beer is perfect because I can read a fucking label.

This beer might be as good as it gets for me especially in terms of style. Logsdon makes an unreal saison. Their brett version is one of my top ten beers I've had and I love peaches. This beer delivered all of that. The color of the body almost had a peach skin note to it. The beer smells of fresh peaches. The taste is everything that is great about Seizoen Bretta but with beautful peach and floral notes. I can't recommend this enough and can't wait to get myself a bottle.

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with orange/tangerine edges and a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring.  Spotty lacing left behind.  

Musty brett aroma with some barrel and a boat load of luscious organic peach.  Farmhouse yeast and musty funk in the nose with dry brett, damp wood and a very prominent peach presence.  Nice fruited saison.  The brett really stands out after it warms and is nicely complimented by the oak.  The peach character is dominant but doesn't smell artificial nor is it overpowering.  Nice balance of different characteristics in the nose.

Medium bodied with a prominent musty brett character along with dry oak and sour peach.  The dry brett flavor is really strong with musty funk perfectly complimenting the farmhouse yeast.  Oak is dry/toasted but blends nicely with the bugs and funky yeast notes.  Peaches come in at the end with a luscious organic feel.  Not cloying or overly sweet with some sour acidity lingering in the finish. Slightly puckering with pit and fleshy fruit flavor.  Very complex but it's one of most balanced beers I've ever had.  Flavor and mouthfeel are nearly perfect.  I wasn't a fan of regular Seizoen or Seizoen Bretta but I highly recommend doing whatever it takes to try this one.

750ml bottle. Best before 12/2017. Served in a Russian River stemmed glass

Appearance: Hazy golden orange color with some visible carbonation streaming throughout. There was less than a finger of a white head that dissipated quickly leaving a collar around the edges of the glass.

Smell: As one might expect peaches are the first thing you get in the aroma. It's more of a sour peach candy aroma than it is fresh peach skin or flesh. In addition to the peaches, there's some bretty funk, lemon, pepper, citrus, and pear.

Taste: Peaches, apricot, some barnyard funk, lactic acid, white grape, slight breadiness, and a some peppery yeast. Sourness is low, and balanced by a mild bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with medium levels of prickly carbonation. If it weren't printed on the label, I'd have never believed the ABV on this beer. It drinks more like 4% than 10%. This is hands down the most drinkable high ABV beer I've ever had.

Overall: This is an excellent beer and I'm glad I got the chance to try it. I still can't get over how drinkable this is. I had to stop myself from gulping it down too quickly. Definitely recommend seeking out a bottle or two.

750ml bottle...another crazy hard to get peachy beer at a recent tasting. This one generously shared by jlindros. Poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anny glass.

A - Pours a pale golden color with a cloudy overall appearance. A short cap of foamy white head forms and lingers briefly and falls to leave a thin collar.

S - Quite bretty with some nice funk. Sweet and quite peachy, a bit cool with some herbal qualities, fruity overall with some additions of grapey aromas too.

T - Surprsingly, not all that peachy. I get other flavors - notably grapes...very juicy. A bit on the dry side, fairly earthy and lots of dry brett character.

M - Dry overall. I get the odd flavor of artificial sweeteners/diet soda. Body is light with a lighter carbonation as well. Disappointing a bit with the lighter than expected fruit aspect.

O - Had very high hopes for this beer...not bad at all, but a bit of a letdown considering my expectations. Not nearly as peachy as I had hoped...overall quite dry and earthy in character with a strong alcoholic aspect that detracts a bit.

S - Lots of peach, lactic acid, light grassy presence to it 4.25

T - Good peach presence to it up front that is balanced with a nice funky Brett and a slight lemon tartness. The finish is where the more wild aspects shine through as the Brett and sour make themselves more known.

M - Light carbonation with a nice dry finish

O - Really a great peach Saison that balances well between the peach and the sour and funky presence.

A-Cloudy orange, two finger head, leaves nice lacing.

S-Holy peaches! Perfect amount, not artificial at all. Tad bit of oak and grass.

T-Not as sour as I was expecting, still tart though. Great deal of peaches, a little too much for my tastes.

M-Medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

O-A tad bit more sour notes and this could be perfect. Easily the best peach beer on the market.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.

This beer looks like a peach. Very hazy, with a dark yellow orange color and a very full off-white head. A nice bit of lace marks the sides of the glass.

The aroma is light, sweet peach mostly. There is a bit of an acidic sour note. A bit of funk is in the background, but not much.The fruit flavor does not come through as fully in the nose as I would want. The nose is softer than I like in my sours.

The flavor could be peaches and cream, although it would be a light version. The flavor has a crisp, tart, peach flavor with a bit of cream. There is a bit of funk to it, but this beer is rather light and simple for my taste. The finish is a little bit dry.

The mouthfeel is rather light for a 10% beer. It is a little bit tart, and there is a bit of creaminess, but overall it is a bit tame. The carbonation is light and creamy, with a dry and sour finish.

This is a well-made beer, but as a lover of puckering sour beers, this just does not get there. It has a high ABV and a saison finish, but it does not have the intense sour fruit notes I enjoy.

Bottle with massive props to jbuddle. Shared at tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Fully opaque cumquat with a vibrant white head which abates very slowly leaving a tight spider web lattice.

Tart and tangy peach, like a cross between peach Pez and vitamin C tablets, alongside plenty of sweaty horse-blanket funk. Bright, clean and snazzy.

Drier flavours with considerable acidity. Earthy peach, lemon-lime and hay.

Medium to full with somewhat aggressive carbonation and mild booze heat.

Rollicking fruit Saison, if a little too big for its boots. Bemused as to why this needed to be 10%

Thanks to OakedCanuck for this one. Batch 2. Opened at Stone's Sour Fest for sharing.

A: Pours a hazy peach with a 1/2-inch white head which fades slowly to the rim leaving spotty lace.

N: Peachy and sour with lactic, funky bugs, wheaty, grassy and herbal.

T: Peaches up front with some lemon and funk. Slightly sour. Earthy minerality and grassy.

M: Moderate body and carbonation. Finishes clean, dry, and brightly sour with fruit.

O: Fruit is less prominent than a bottle opened a few weeks prior, but still very enjoyable.

Thanks to Jason for sharing this.

Pours a minimally cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head.

The nose gives off some funky tones from the brett, with some underlying peach.

Very refreshing taste. Light funkiness from the brett gives way to peach yogurt flavors. Tasty.

Mouthfeel is good, perhaps a touch over carbed.

Overall this is a great brew, I see it as a nice sipper on a warm day. I would definitely drink this again.
