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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
