Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one during the Churchill's weekend festivities.

Bottle No. P2192. Best by 12/2017.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and slightly funky with peach and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with a fermented peach flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is light and refreshing despite its ABV.

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!

This poured out as a hazy orange color with a white sticky white head on top. Nice thin retention on top. The smell of the beer is sweet, fruity and has a subtle grainy backbone in there. Some really nice aromas on this one. The taste of the beer is mellow, there is a nice sweetness from the Peche and a very subtle tart Brett finish. Very smooth mouthfeel, very drinkable. Overall it's very good. Really enjoyable brew.

Huge, huge thanks to boralyl for this one. Served in a cervoise. Pours a slightly-cloudy light peach color. Wow. Let's start that way. Nose has huge peach plus earth and mild funk. Dry and a bit creamy. Dry. Touch acidic. Some wheat. Incredible. Logsdon has really got some good things going.

Thanks, David.

Appearance: This gushed quite a bit after uncapping the bottle. The beer pours a hazy blond color, topped by a huge frothy head that takes a while to settle.

Smell: A ton of fruit here. Peaches and cream and vanilla beans spring to mind first. Behind that there's a good amount of barnyard, phenols and light acidity. The nose is exceptional.

Palate: Very dry and bubbly with a big vibrant peach flavor that includes flesh and more tannic skin. Brett lends a peppery, funky and phenolic backbone to the intense fruit flavors. There's a touch of grain and gentle acidity. The body is medium-light, and there's no trace of the ABV. I was even somewhat shocked to discover that this is 10% - I'd have guessed maybe 6%.

Overall: This beer took me by surprise. I tried the base beer for this a few months back and thought it was quite good, but this is on another level. Seek this out.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

From 02/27/15 notes. HUGE thanks to the combo of nimbleprop, nmann08, and jslot38 for busting this out at my bachelor party in Charleston...one of my biggest wants.

Pours a hazy, burnt golden-orange color with two fingers of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation evident. The nose is absolutely amazing; light tart delicious peach juice. Taste has more oak spice, yeast, grains, bready malts, oranges, and tropical notes. Medium body and moderate carbonation, easy to drink...doesn't feel like 10%.

Overall I love this; I like Logsdon a lot and this is their best beer by far. The nose is perfect; would love to get this one again sometime. Hope it comes to NYC more often.

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.

A: Pours a hazy orange color, rather bright with a small white head on top that reduced to a bubbly ring on top. Sporadic clingy lace.

S: A great combination of bretty aromas and peaches. Some definite hay/barnyard funk going on with ripe fruit. Just a bit of oak.

T: Nice fresh peach flavor, not super peachy, but very balanced with the brett. Very light tartness mixed with the funk that the brett brings to the beer. Light wheat and grainy malt in the background.

M: Light bodied with medium carbonation. Extremely drinkable, especially for 10%!

O: Really a great beer, one of the best I have had recently, certainly lives up to its reputation. Look forward to trying the other Logsdon Saisons.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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?

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

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Best by 5/2015. Bottle number P430. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Very murky. Golden yellow body. Small white head. Great retention.

Smell - Whoa, peaches. Amazing fruit aroma. Light brett, but it's otherwise all peach.

Taste - Peach is still nice, but it's a little more sour. Less exciting. Peaches and tang. Appropriate name for this beer, I suppose.

Mouthfeel - Light and overcarbonated. Dry and a little sour.

Overall - Great fruit flavor, but the beer itself isn't necessarily great. Tasty, but definitely could be a better beer.

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

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!

Huge thanks to Luke (writerljberg) for this special beer. This took gold in the American-Style Brett Ale category at World Beer Cup 2012. My first Logsdon beer. The cap comes off with a vicious hiss. As I put my hands on the keyboard to type that last sentence the foam starts bubbling over the mouth of the bottle and onto my pants. Great move on my part *shakes my fist toward Oregon*. Snifter.

After I typed the word "snifter" I turned around to speak to my fiancé and I knocked 4 ounces of the beer onto my keyboard and mouse pad so I spent 10 minutes cleaning that up. Then, I noticed that foam had gained the mouth of the bottle again and a bit more got on my desk. This beer has been quite an ordeal so far.

The bottle presentation is very nice. The label art itself is beautiful and it has a peach coloring to it that adds to its attractiveness.

A: Hazy yellow orange with a big mousse-like white head. Good retention and sheets of lacing are left behind.

S: Sugary sweet and lightly tart peaches with pronounced leather and earthy notes. Apple blends with pear, apricot, and floral character. Malt is soft and grainy. This smells amazing. There's a subtle spiciness with a restrained barnyard presence.

T: Tart peaches up front with apple, pear, apricot, leather, drying oak, and a little vanilla. The fruit is bright and expressive, with some yogurt-like lactic character. There's a bit of lemon with a mild citric acidity. The finish is bursting with peach and lemon with oak, light tannins, and a dry tartness. This is 10%? Good god. Life is over when brewers can make beers that seem 5% but are actually 10%.

M: Lower medium body with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is spritzy, dry, tannic, and smooth.

Overall: Exceptional. I feel fortunate to be able to try this. Highly recommended.

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.

Edit from 4/12/14. As others have noted, this is not a beer to age or sit on. Sampled one of two bottles I still have left from the most recent release, and the peach flavor is already starting to subside a bit. It was stil tasty, but when very fresh, the peach flavor is prominent and just amazing, whereas now it's just one more voice in the flavor profile chorus. Still good, don't get me wrong, but when very fresh, this beer is just out of this world.

Very cloudy peach colored body. cap and collar throughout. Great lacing and head retention.

Faint fruity tartness.

Extreme funk, "musty basement". Peach is noticable but not close to overwhemling. Almost reminds me of lemonade somehow. Wouldn't guess as high of an ABV than it actually is.

Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Had side by side with Fantasia and I give a slight edge to Fantasia. I'd say worth seeking out if you don't have to pay an arm and a leg. Base beer is great as well. Thanks egrace84.

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.

In past years I have given this beer a 4.5+, but I'm not crazy about the 2015 release. Smells great, but tastes very perfume-y, and that aggressive Logsdon brett strain comes across slightly soapy in this case.

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 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.
