Bottle shared thanks to nmann08, thanks man.

The looks is nice, it has a frothy whirring of head, some lacing, and a solid hazy orange color. The smell is just saturated with peaches, nice fresh peaches that really remind me of getting them off a farm in Virginia and Georgia. Nice oak and slight sweetness in the nose as well. Not really funky in the nose for me, aside from a wiff of Brett.

The taste is also very peachy, some more tart and dry notes come in at the back of the palate. Some semi sweet note to it, but it is very dry overall and a nice barnyard tinge straw maltiness too. Brett fruitiness comes through,

The feel as mentioned is dry, and has nice carbonation. Almost hard to gauge the body of this with how dry it is, mixed with the acidic acid.

A very nice beer, but maybe not all the way up to the hype. (829 characters)

Opened at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013. Thanks to UncleJedi for sharing this.

As soon as the cap was cracked this exploded with fizz and went all over the kitchen. Never seen anything like it, was like a shaken up bottle of champagne.

Pours an insanely thick apricot color with small brown flakes floating around. Obviously the sediment has been disturbed here. Looks like a fruit purée.

Smell is all sweet canned peaches with only a hint of sour. Smells wonderful.

Taste is a little less impressive but still great and mostly the same--loads is sweet peach, a touch if tartness and brett but mostly fruit.

Body is really thick but carb is pretty low, I guess the initial explosion kinda killed the carb here.

This was plenty good but probably not a representative sample given that our bottle pretty much literally exploded before we poured any of it and we lost about half the bottle. Would like to try it again.

I suspect they poured peach syrup into seizoen bretta. The peach flavor didn't taste natural and was not as explosive as some have mentioned. Overall, not bad (158 characters)

Disclaimer: 2014 vintage consumed after Flora Cherry.

This beer smells amazing. It explodes with peaches on the nose.

The taste is really where this beer missed the mark. It delvers on the peach but less than the nose would indicate. I was hoping for more sour on the palate to strengthen this beer. The finish was bizarre and undesirable. (343 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)

Shared at my Birthday whale tasting. I shared this one, thanks to HaveUSeenMyCellar.

Pours a light fizzy head that barely comes, hazy peach color.

Nose has some Brett funk, horsehair, light peaches, fruity but funky, canned peaches but light.

Taste starts funky, wild Brett but not super funky, nice juice, fresh canned peaches, esters and hint of phenols, grainy bready yeasty, smooth and doesn't drink like 10% at all, finish is juicy, light bitterness, peach, syrupy and sticky, light dusty oak.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, but not as good as I expected. Drinks well, but peaches are too light, and funk isn't as much as I expected either. (670 characters)

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)

Thanks to FondueVoodoo for this one.

Awesome aroma of peaches and apricots. Totally hazy light peach colored body. Spicy peaches at first in the flavor, tartness is assertive. Brett flavors come out more in finish. Very nice though a 750ml was a bit much to finish by myself :) (278 characters)

Wholly peach and brett Batman. These two equally dominate the smell and taste with some alcohol esters. Not really sour. Very balanced and good....... (150 characters)

The aroma smacks of peach rings. Peach juice, peach candy, peach flesh, it is mostly dominated by that with some wheat and Brett in the back.

The flavor is very different as the beer offers pear juice, a touch of peach flavor, lots of intense metallic-like Brett flavor with a dry finish. (289 characters)

Thanks Todd!

A - Pours pale yellow, white head, spotty lace.

S - Peaches...millons of peaches, peaches for me! The actual brett is a small 2nd compared to the peach note, but I'm not complaining.

T - Peaches! Fruity sweetness, light brett funk, dry citrus. This beer drinks like 5% or so, I can't believe it's 10%. Finish is all sweet peaches and some light dry funk.

M - Light body, good carbonation, clean finish.

O - Amazing peach-saison of some sort...I wanted more but the bottle was crushed in 1 minute! I guess I'll have to track one of these down for myself...my wife would love this stuff. (604 characters)

Best by 01/2016

Near turbid golden with a central dome of light cream foam and little lace. The nose is really nice, peaches, apricots, brett, seltzer, vitamins, tart tones and just a touch of sweetness at the end. Nice tartness on the sides of the tongue, some brett watery character, some bits of lacto style yogurt character and plenty of peach, but the peach seems unripened. Medium on full bodied with hi carb that dissipates quickly and leaves me quite dry - this forces me to take another drink...sadly/not! Nice beer. (526 characters)

The beer is hazy and light orange with a small white head. The aroma offers peaches, brett (shocker), wild yeast, funk. Straightforward in both the aroma and flavor. Really nice. Juicy peaches throughout. Mild acidity with fairly low carbonation. A touch of spice in the finish. Mild bitterness as well. Really tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone (352 characters)

Thanks to Todd for sharing this rarity at my birthday bash.

A - Quick-dissolving foam settles to a thin partial collar. Murky peach body.

S - A ridiculous amount of peaches - my notes say 'peaches!' and then later say 'stone fruits'. I guess it smelled a lot like peaches. Not as much brett as you'd expect given its equal billing - more of a lactic yogurty quality. A light vinous note reveals the oak aging.

T - The taste is quite nice, but not as awesome as the aroma. Again, a monstrous amount of peach goodness, mixed with some lactic tangy yogurt flavor, and hint of lemony brett and oak. A tad mono-dimensional, but quite enjoyable.

M - 10%? Are you kidding me? Drinks like a beer with about half the ABV. Smooth texture and lower carbonation - this bottle could have used a tad more spritz and dryness.

D - Perhaps one of the most drinkable 10% beers I've ever had. I really enjoyed this, and probably would consume an entire 750ml bottle if I didn't know there was a monster hangover waiting at the end. I think some age might reveal some added complexity. I liked this a fair bit more than Seizoen Bretta. (1,120 characters)

Big thanks to Libbey for this bottle...

A: Pours a nice cloudy gold with pink/orange hues around the edges. There is a good amount of head, but it settles quickly, leaving a rocky layer across the top of the beer.

S: The nose is huge fruity peach/apricot, a good helping of brett, some additional funk, and touch of fresh cut grass. The peach notes are exactly self evident, but this beer is definitely fruit forward.

T: Right away I get a good mix of fruit and funk. The peaches are there and they mix well with the funky brett, but it's not super intense peach. It's just a nice balance between sweet and tart fruit and brett.

M: Light bodied beer. Good amount of carbonation, sweet to start followed immediately by that familiar brett funk. The flavors last through to the finish where is dries up a bit, leaving some residual funk to the palate.

O: This is a pretty darn good beer. I was really hoping that the peaches would be ridiculously over the top, but it wasn't. Still... the flavors are great and the brett funk is just right. I am incredibly happy to have been able to try this beer, and would love to try it again in the future. (1,148 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance. A little bit of a gusher but this came straight from the cellar without additional chilling in the fridge. Pours a bright, rich gold with a little peach and a finger of white head that leaves some great lace.

Smell. Massive amounts of peach ...not exactly fresh but sweet and tart like a fresh peach pie, some dry brett funk and dried hardwood, a bit of light grainy malt and maybe a drop of rum.

Taste. Nice light peaches, lightly sweet and lightly sour much like fruit itself, some dry brett, a bit of bitter wood and little wheaty and grainy light malts. The brett lasts a while on the tongue.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium+ soft carbonation. Nice warmth in the throat.

Overall. A very nice saison with plenty of peaches. Nothing too mind blowing, but a very high quality beer like everything from this brewer. (832 characters)

Reviewing Peche 'N Brett from Logsdon Farmhouse Ales out of Hood River, Oregon.

Score: 94

2012 vintage bottle served in a Goose Island Flag Snifter and enjoyed on 03/06/13.

Appearance: Dull golden straw color. Less than a coating of clump, off-white head from the pour. Poor lacing, belong average retention. 3.5/5

Smell: Ripe peach bomb! Also some straw and that smell one associates with bretted beers. Almost entirely peach on the nose. Not very complex, but smells delicious! 4.5/5

Taste: The peach flavor is not very tart and is best described as "delicate" -- it is "soft" and coats the tongue, but is not super intense. More straw than in the nose, a little funk and a little bit of grassy hops too. Has an interested finish that is acidic, hoppy and mildly tart at the same time. Tartness mellows out as it warms. A little pepper in finish. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, low carbonation. Juicy mouthfeel with a little dryness on the finish. Acidic, but the acidity mellows out as it warms. 4.25/5

Overall: Not nearly as "sour" as anticipated, but pretty tasty nonetheless. Maybe I am just a sucker for peaches.

Cost: $20 for a 750 ml bottle (1,158 characters)

Shared by JLindros at his Birthday Whale Tasting. Reviewed from notes. Its worth noting this was a yellow cap bottle. There were two cap colors. Black signified longer time in barrels I do believe.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a clear peach juice with a thin white quarter inch head that fades to a light thin blanket.

S - Super bretty with very light, super dry peach notes. Faint horsehair and peach syrup. Not quite as peachy as I figured it would be.

T - Taste is well, peach and brett. Light peach juice and canned peaches. The pear comes through as well thanks to the base beer. Again though, not nearly as much peach as I thought this would have. No alcohol at all though.

M - Mouthfeel is sold. Its light and crisp with no noticeable alcohol. Super impressive.

O - Overall, a good beer but not quite worth the hype. I have a few bottles myself and I think Jared just got an old bottle as there really should have been more peaches in this. (962 characters)

Poured a murky gloden orange in color with pale yellow highlights a half finger of bubbly head that left good wisps of lacing sticking to the glass. Good funky bretty character and peach fruit were noticeable upfron on the nose with hints of spice, herbs and wood oak with nice tarf qualities. The peach fruit was more apparent on the palate with good bretty barnyard funk, slight spice, hints of citrus zest alongside great oaky accents and a touch of apple pear flavor. The brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a oaky, fruity, bretty funky, slight spice and tar finish. These dudes really now how to funk it up! (644 characters)

A: pours a hazy light orange with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy ring with a little lacing.

S: sweet peaches and cream with Belgian candy sugar, sweet fruits, and tart notes as well. There are some funky barnyard notes as well.

T: similarto the aroma, peaches, tart fruits, Belgian sweetness and spices, and barnyard flavors. The finish is clean and bready.

M: light body with medium carbonation, this beer is light and drinkable.

O: an enjoyable beeroverall. The peach and Brett go well together, creating a light, tasty, and enjoyable saison. (565 characters)

Tulip glass.

A: Pours golden with a nice covering of snow white head which recedes quickly to a ring. Very good retention for what head there is, and some nice chaotic streaks of lacing.

S: Fresh cut, sweet, delicious peaches and an undercurrent of spice, a little malt, and very mild citrus hops, and a little oak as it warms.

T: Peaches and pale-ish malt, some fruity esters and a little brett, and more juicy citrus fruit on the medium length finish. Mild acidity gives this a little brightness. A little oak character comes through as it warms to near room temperature.

M: Medium carbonation with noticeable bite which softens with some time in the glass. Creamy texture and no alcohol noticeable at 10 (!) percent.

O: Exceedingly--nay, dangerously--drinkable. A very well executed farmhouse ale. The fruit is prominent but not overwhelming. I guess if I had any complaints, it would be that I don't get a lot of oak character, and the brett is pretty minimal. (969 characters)

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. (435 characters)

Pours a light straw color, orange-ish, really. Very cloudy. Nice big head. White. Lots of small bubbles. Creamy. Very good lacing. Quite a pretty beer. Nice aroma of saison funk and smokey peaches. The peach character is fresh and deep. It has a very light smoke fruit character. Lots of yeast earthiness. A bit mineral-ish. It's a cultured peach flavor. Not terribly jammy or pungent, but a rustic citrus peach wood flavor. Taste starts with sweeter peaches and turns to sourer drier territory quickly. Finish is lightly bitter. Peach skins. Light mouthfeel. Very smooth and nice for the abv. Very happy to try this one. Big thank you to westcstbrlvr. This is another excellent beer from logsdon. (697 characters)

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. (429 characters)

Slight gusher on the outset, should have been prepared, luckily only lost a couple drops as we had glasses ready.

Pours a very hazy yellow color with a thick white head that recedes to leave a thick amount of soapy lacing.

Aromas begin quite rustic and earthy intially which was surprising. There is a nice earthy, bretty funk with a sugary pilsner/pale malt base. As it warms there is a slight presence of peaches but honestly I was expecting more. There is also more and more emerging oak and some Farmhouse spiced yeast.

The tastes follows the nose with plenty of oaky wood and yeast-induced spice with some moderate tartness. There is a very solid rustic bretty funk to this with more and more emerging fruity apricot notes.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation on the higher end of medium. Finish is perfectly dry and musty and earty with slight stone fruit in the background.

Overall I would have liked a little a little more peach flavor to balance the saison backbone but that aside this is probably the best Farmhouse ale (and definitely the best organically produced beer) I have ever had. I wouldn't call it a wild ale, per say, because it was more rustic and less overly sour or tart. The fact that this was 10% was ridiculous, it drinks like 7% max. Not a drop of alcohol. I would say crack this ASAP as I believe the peach flavor is fading and the Brett is really taking hold. I definitely plan to seek out more beers from this new Oregon farmhouse brewer. (1,490 characters)
