Reviewed from notes. Big thanks to immobilisme for bringing this to the summer tasting!
A- Pours a hazy light orange with a one finger head that leaves a few lines of lacing.
S- Tons of ripe peaches upfront followed by some lactic, brett, oak, lemon peel and a bit of vinegar
T- Again the peaches are the star of the show with fresh peach juice and peach skin with some lactic notes, which reminds me of peach yogurt. Oak, vinegar and a hint of brett follow.
M- Medium carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel.
O- Definitely the most surprising beer of the two day tasting, which included the 4 BA DL'S, Rare, BA Speedway, Damon and many other good ones. The 10% is nowhere to be found in this. I sure wish I could have had more than a couple ounces of this stuff. Fantastic beer and one I'll be seeking out in the future.

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!
