A fantastic beer. The weight, feel and flavor of this beer is quite darn good. The peach is consistently present without too much "skin" and very little sweetness. Slightly tart to give it a quenching trait. Just darn good (223 characters)

something about me and certain fruited wild ales that i just cant get over. this is one of the best ive ever had, a truly unique brew, maybe the best example of peaches in a beer ive ever seen. its hazy and pale, heady as they come, faint glowing orange. im smelling the fizzy ripe yellow peach, sweet and like nothing else nature produces. the brett is intense, mature, getting tart rather than just funky. there is also this creamy vanilla aroma that is supported by a heavy wheat malt base and patience. the flavor is an oh my god moment, or series of moments each sip. im floored by this, its so unique. the peaches and the brett are elevated well beyond where they have gone in other beers, to the point of being explosive on the palate. i like the bottle more and more as it drinks down too, the dregs being almost my favorite part because of how alive it all seems to be. the peaches and brett are the perfect combination, its just incredible. my mouth waters for more as i write this. effervescent carbonation and a puckery dry finish thats about as expressive as brett can be. nothing subtle about it, but expertly refined. i absolutely must get my hands on more of this magic! (1,186 characters)

A big thanks to Jeff for this one. 750ml capped bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a foamy 1.5 finger light cream colored head with great retention. Beer is a slightly cloudy orange. Lacing is thick and layered with excellent stick. An awesome looking beer.

Nose is fresh peaches and cream with hints of cane sugar. Very simple but the peach presence is one of the strongest I've ever come across.

Huge sweet peach flavor complemented by Brett funk, cane sugar, foam, coriander and floral notes. Lightly tart balanced by fruity sweetness throughout. Finishes peach skin and a slight woodiness. Really good.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down refreshing and crisp. Soft finish with a very clean aftertaste. Super drinkable.

A big thanks again to Jeff for this hyped and hard-to-come-by brew. Certainly worthy of praise, this is one of the more unique peach "sours" I've come across. Not so much tart but really uses the sweet peach character very nicely. (1,038 characters)

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 1/2019. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy and lightly tart peach, apricot, pineapple, lemon zest, white grape, pear, green apple, white pepper, honey, bread, hay, straw, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome balance and complexity of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, peaches, and pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of lightly tart peach, apricot, pineapple, lemon zest, white grape, pear, green apple, white pepper, honey, bread, hay, straw, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness and slight tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, apricot, pineapple, lemon zest, white grape, pear, green apple, white pepper, honey, hay, straw, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, peaches, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly slick/prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome fruited brett saison. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, peaches, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering. (1,663 characters)

Big thanks to eyebereej for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Tampa Bay Brewing snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy dark gold, with a big fluffy white head with great retention. Moderate visible carbonation. 4.5/5

S: Musty funk from the Brettanomyces, saison yeastiness, cracker malts, and dry tannins from the oak. I get minimal to no peaches on the nose, which is a bit disappointing. 15/20

T: Tart peaches under a big Brett funkiness, musty barnyard saison yeast and bready malts. Light oak tannins. Dry and lightly tart in the finish. The peach flavors do increase as the beer warms during the drink. 37/45

M: Average weight to body, good carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is well-hidden. 7/10

O: This was pretty tasty, but I was a little disappointed. I expected more peach flavor and tartness, and the Brett funk and wild farmhouse character seemed to predominate. I would recommend letting this one getting much closer to room temperature for full enjoyment. 16.5/20

A: Cloudy orange, practically opaque. It has the appearance of mango nectar.

S: A big blast of funky saison yeast, brett breath, sweet peaches, and pears.

T: Boozy. The alcohol appears prominently at the front and is then joined by dry, yeasty funk, grass, and . The peaches only appear on the finish. No tartness.

M: Thick but dry. The alcohol heat leaves a trail from throat to stomach.

O: Not sure what to think about this given how long it took me to chase it down. It's definitely good but the flavor isn't as complex as I was led to expect. (550 characters)

750ml bottle poured into tulip 13/7/14 bottle #4676 BB 01/2019 big thanks to Rutager for the bottle

A cloudy orange liquid, I can only see a few bubbles but there's plenty in there somewhere as it pumps out a dense three finger foam that has great retention leaving rings deep down the glass

S massive peach nose, smells juicy as hell, some apricots, pear, green apple, doughy, mild funk and wood but for the most its fresh peaches, smells awesome I wouldn't change a thing

T more wood and funk and less of the massive peachy notes I was loving on the nose, still tastes great but then nose was a very hard act to follow

M heavy side of medium, a little tart, just stays on the creamy side of foam, no booze on the way down, wood, brett, and peaches linger faintly for ages

O smells amazing, the booze is completely hidden, way too easy drinking, very well put together, everything meshes together beautifully

This one hit the spot, the nose is unbelievable, 10% is completely hidden, not sure if I'd age this one with the peaches kicking ass right now, another one of those beers I want to drink the day its bottled and five years down the road. (1,154 characters)

Poured into a long stemmed tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.
Bottle No. 9363
Best by: 04/2019

Pours a gorgeous hazy pale golden color with some nice hints of orange. A nice white half inch head form with this brew. Dense and bright with some nice sticky lacing forming along the glass.

Aroma is straight sweet peach. So amazingly delicious nose. Notes of mild sugary sweetness with some nice dry funk perceived. Mild tartness on the nose. The nice notes of juice and some wood are present.

The flavor notes are fruity with notes of peach and pear juice. Softness and funky brett character are present in the flavor with some nice mild tartness. Notes of wood are present with some nice sugary sweetnes. Great dry notes. Chalky and soft yeast notes with some good carbonation. (777 characters)

Bottle, 2013 release that slightly gushes out, poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a hazy golden orange with two plus fingers of billowing fluffy off white head. Head sticks around for a few minutes before slowly dissipating leaving thick swatches of lacing.

Nose is sweet ripe peaches, biscuit and grain sweetness, earthy and herbal notes.

Taking a sip, brett forward, earthy, and herbal bitterness, light funk, mellowing to sweet peaches. A bit of toasted biscuit malt sweetness. Finishes very dry, with a light lingering peach flavor.

Light body with very fine carbonation. Very refreshing, leaves the tongue very clean and ready for the next sip. (657 characters)

A: Giant white head rocketing up to 4 fingers and calms down to a solid 2 fingers with a rocky thick foam clinging to the glass in islands. True to the name the brew is golden peach in colour clouded with what I can only hope is deliciousness.

S: Sweet juicy peach with a close follow up of that familiar bret funk, sour and lactic acid . Tartness of citrus fruits and fresh sweetness with a very subtle whiff of oak.

T: Tart and tangy peach juice with white pepper, fresh lemon juice and lactic acid. Brett shows at the finish like a sucker on the tongue, dry tart and crisp. As it warms the peaches begin to fade slightly while the brett comes to the forefront.

M: Snappy carbonation up front with a dry, crisp finish.

O: This is a fantastic beer that perfectly matches the acidity, dryness and funk of the brett with the freshness of peaches and it reminiscent of matching cheese and fruit. While this beer was difficult to find it was definitely worth the effort. (973 characters)

750ml bottle, 2014 vintage, poured into a Logdsdon Cervoise.

The beer pours a super cloudy straw color, hues of apricot and orange with a very, very, lively white head, soapy and frothy that settles at about 3 fingers and has great retention and leaves a huge wall of lace. The aroma is beautiful, tons of peaches, juicy and fresh, nice bretty funk and yeast character with light spice with some pale must grain. The flavors follow nicely, loads of juicy peach, fleshy, juicy and fresh with a bit of the pear juice that is present that also comes across like white grapes, nice funkiness and yeast character, true to the saison style, pale cracked grain, very rustic with light mustiness. The mouthfeel is great, almost creamy at times but with lots of lively carbonation that coats so well and finishes crisply that lets off so nicely.

Verdict: Sensational saison from Logsdon and one of my favorite beers ever. The peaches are showcased perfectly without undermining the base beer or the style and crossing over into a wild ale. This is definitely a must try and just a spectacular beer. (1,091 characters)

OMG, I cannot believe I did not review this initially when I rated it! Yes, I loved this beer, the best peach ever and I am dying to get hold of some more. Nice woody tone to literally buckets of peaches hides that 10% well. A full body of flavor and texture. (259 characters)

A: Pours a hazed burnt apricot flavor with a tightly carbonated two finger white head. This bottle was not a gusher, which was cool. Didn't want any of this to go to waste.

S: My favorite part of the beer. This stuff smells fantastic. Right away, you get the advertised peach, but it's not the sweet, juicy peach puree kind of smell I was expecting. It's a tart underripe white peach aroma blanketed by some bretty funk. There is definitely a touch of sweetness there, but the barnyard funk really keeps things from getting too sweet. A great dash of oak, spice and just waves and waves of funk. I love this smell.

T: Opens with a tart note of peach and peach skin with a trace of underripe raspberry peeking through. A big wave of barnyard funk follows and it leaves a dry, tannic feel on your tongue. Soft oak, brett, peach pit and chalky malt. Everything is really well balanced and the peaches are a great addition. Mouthfeel is medium with some tight carbonation that allows all of the flavors to come through without being too distracting. The slightest bit of warmness on the swallow is the only trace of the 10%. A really well done beer. (1,148 characters)

Pours a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma of mildly tart peaches upfront, some wild yeast, and a little oak - peaches mostly though. Flavor brings out potent peaches upfront, quickly transitioning to tart peaches, lots of brett and a little oak. Extremely peachy and mildly wild, with loads of complexity. Finishes mildly tart and wild. Extremely high drinkability, with no alcohol presence whatsoever. (413 characters)

Very hazy amber pour with a nice two finger head that sticks around for quite awhile before receding to a lasting ring. Palate is peachy, spicy, moderately funky, with a beautiful balance among the three. The tartness is somewhat restrained, but its level works perfectly. One of the best peach sours I’ve had the privilege to enjoy. (335 characters)

750ml bottle of the 2014 release. Poured into a Cigar City snifter today, 4/23/2014.

A- Dark yellow, hazy body with a one finger white head with solid retention, some lacing, nothing different from the base Seizoen-Bretta, to be honest. Though this is certainly hazier than I remember the base being.

S- Peach juice, a little bit of horseblanket funk, no acidity at all, slight tartness, some pale malt. But make no mistake about it, this is tasty peach juice.

F- Palate on this beer is even better than it smells. Some stone fruit skin, peach juice, slight horseblanket funk without any rubbery off-flavours, slight tartness, sharp wheatiness and a bit of spice. No real acidity to this but I will not complain about how much peach character there is.

M- Medium bodied, incredibly drinkable, plenty of carbonation that is very refreshing similar to the base beer. And there is absolutely no indication that this is a 10% ABV beer. Wow.

O- Excellent drinking experience, one of the best peach beers I think I'll ever have the chance to try. It's a nice improvement on the base Seizoen-Bretta, and I can't imagine the peach will stay around for much longer. This is a beer I definitely recommend drinking fresh. (1,215 characters)

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. (1,453 characters)

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! (1,615 characters)

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. (554 characters)

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. (2,316 characters)

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. (982 characters)

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. (1,008 characters)

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. (625 characters)

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. (568 characters)

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. (2,186 characters)
