2013 bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead stem. Thanks Zane!

Pour: Hazy, bright orange. Two fingers of fluffy white head from and leaves some heavy, thick lacing. Fantastic looking beer.

Smell: Woah! Big peach and pears up front, as well as some pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. A very pronounced funk. Hints of sweet breadyness enter, but only just. This just smells perfect, and maybe the best smelling beer I've ever had.

Taste: Big peaches up front, that quickly subside into lactic tartness and a very earthy brett funk. Lemon, white grape tannins, and pear. The Seizoen Bretta base is undeniable through the mid-palate. Finishes with tart peaches and pear, more funk, and a dry white wine barrel oak.

Mouthfeel: Insanely juicy. No hints of alcohol whatsoever. Goes down very easily, and finishes quite dry.

Overall: This is a top tier wild ale, no doubt. I think I prefer Mimosa a tad more, and Oak Aged Bretta more than both. I absolutely will be seeking this out again soon.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.

750ml bottle (#P3951; best by 01/2018), beeswax seal on a golden cap.

A: Small hiss as the seal is broken, then pours a pretty apricot/copper orange with foamy/fizzy whiteness cresting just at the edge of the glass. Bubbles percolate and cling precariously, head doesn't last (a breaking skimcoat seconds after the pour), neither does the lacing. Overall complexion is slightly haze, moreso as the bottle nears its finish.

S: Nose-tickling 'funk', a bready/earthy/ moldy medley that reeks of wet hay and over-ripened fruit. Good strength - really present when poured warmer, closer to 'room temperature'.

T: Soft peach skin, juicy and laced with tartness. Lemon rinds, green apples, cut grass, a trace of pine. Finishes kind of acidic... with a chalky/mineral bitterness.

M: I'm susceptible to reflux from acidity, and got it right away on first sip. oddly, it mellowed out quickly and things were fine as the smoother grainy/bready characteristics gave balance. Not too fizzy/carbonated - medium body. This is 10%? Wow, one would hardly know it.

O: After tasting this beer at least 5 times, it's safe to say: "a terrific beer". Considering the "best by" dating on all bottles extends 5 years into the future, ALL are pretty 'young', so it'll be interesting to taste them again in 2, 3, 4 years (or more). Suffice to say the 'peach' is upfront right now, the tartness zesty and aggressive. Thank goodness there are a few cellared to taste later. Well played, Logsdon.

Logsdon Farmhouse Peche n Brett

Batch 2

A- pour yields a 1 finger off white head receding quick leaving almost no lacing as expected. 3.5

S- tart, funk, peaches, fruity. Amazing 4.5

T- starts out with juicy peaches light funk, and some tartness follewes by ripe peaches and finishing tannic. The oak barrel has done amazing things to this beer and lends a very nice light sweetness making it perfect. As good as I could ever imagine a beer being. 5

M- good medium body with a medium level of carbonation. 4

O- amazing beer that was a pleasure to try. I'd love another bottle of this. 5

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.

Bottle #P2563 / Best by Dec-2017

750mL poured into stemless wine glass.

Loads of peach upfront that wasn't overbearing. Followed by the fruity farmhouse, yeasty flavors that brought out a mild acidity and low sourness. As classified as a wild ale, I expected more tartness but this level was all good. The oak added a nice depth of tannic mellowness. The oak may also have to do with the hints of vanilla detected. Very impressive.

EDIT: Beer was previously classified as a wild ale before it was corrected.

Bottle #5513 / Best by Jan-2019

750mL poured into Lost Abbey Teku on 7-Mar-14

Less peachy and more saison apple-tartness than I remember, but still very enjoyable. Dangerously drinkable at 10% ABV. My wife really liked it. One of the best farmhouse ales, at least Top 3, that I ever enjoyed.

750ml, BBD 12/2017
Hill Farmstead

A: Hazy bright orange color. Got about a a half finger of bright white head. Faded into a layer and then a ring around edges. Some sticking lacing.

S: Smells of full on Brett. Not getting as much peach character as I was expecting. What's there is that fresh peach flesh. Wheat. Some pepper notes As it warms, more wet hay from the Brett.

T: Up front you don't get the tartness I was expecting. You get the sweet apricot wheat and thin malts. In the back end you get some tartness from the Brett. Definitely getting that soft oak aging. Rounded flavor. Dry finish.

M: Medium bodied.

Poured a hazy orange gold with two fingers of bright white head. Aroma of peach, pepper, hay, oak, and pear. Not too much lacing after the head dies down.

Moderate-to-high carbonation and a full, thick mouthfeel. Creamy and just a bit slick from the alcohol, which is otherwise almost undetectable.

Not as sweet as I suspected, with mild peach, oaky vanilla, apple and pear, a trace of funk, and peppery spice. Finishes very dry and keeps you coming back for more.

It was hard to drink this one slowly. Amazing balance, totally delicious. Doesn't supersede the base beer for me, but I love how they integrated the peach. Not at all overdone.

750ml bottle, brouwers, split

Hazy peach body - thin layer of beige bubble. "Tastes like a Logsdon beer". The brett is in full force - aging this beer seems foolish. The glorious peach notes hit in the finish and are a real nice contrast of sweet-tart. Grassy, funky, some oak, bready notes. Fantastic stuff.

A-Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a fluffy white head.

S- Peaches, oak and brett non-surprisingly dominate here. Some sweet bready malts round out the nose.

T- A serious upgrade over their regular seizoen-bretta. The peach is fresh with the oak adding more layers of flavor. Drying oak and brett play together very well. The tannins of the wood combined with the fruit replicate the sense of sucking on a peach pit. Subtle notes of vanilla add as a great natural pairing with the fruit.

M- Smooth and creamy. Drying with a lingering tart/sweetness and light bready malt. I cannot believe that this beer is 10%! Dangerous at the rate im drinking this.

O- Highly recommended. Im curious to see how this one ages. Its so good though that im afraid my last bottle will be gone too soon to find out!

Poured from bottle into a Deschutes tulip. Batch #2.
A: murky orange with a solid three finger head. I expected this not to be clear, but it's incredibly hazy. Not chunky thank goodness, but still nothing amazing to look at.
S: peaches and funk. Bretty goodness with a solid peach backbone and some hint of crisp acidity. Smells delicious!
T: peaches right up front. Surprisingly not as over the top as I was expecting. Almost balanced with the mild acidity and Brett character. Seems like the Brett is playing into the fruit flavors, with it's funky notes playing a supporting role. Very, very nice.
M: just perfect. It's a light bodied brew, but the perfect level of carbonation and the silkiness and richness of flavor provide a mouth filling experience.
O: awesome. I was expecting this to be a bit of a letdown. So talked up, I generally assume that it can't actually be THAT good. This one lived up to it's reputation. I would put this above any other Saison I've had. And that is how I would characterize it after drinking it. Reads as a beautiful Saison with fruit. The Brett is apparent, but if you put this next to their other brews, the comparison would be obvious I think. Interested to see how this ages as the fruit fades and the Brett takes a funkier and stronger role.

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!

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.

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.

750ml bottle into a tulip. Sent to me by Mahlik. Thanks!

This was a major gusher, so beware.

A: Pours a murky tangerine orange with a spongy white head.

S: Slightly gamey brett and sweet peach in the nose, nicely integrated. Hay, mango, slightly cakey, sweet.

T: Peachy tartness, tropical fruit, drying oak, soft vanilla, mildly sweet bready malt, floral, light horsey brett in the finish. No noticeable alcohol.

M: Light-bodied, creamy carbonation, moderate tannic dryness.

O: This is incredibly well-balanced and easy-drinking. There's no hint of the 10%. The brett and fruit are at a perfect level of expression. Very impressive, something I could drink all day.

Notes taken from 9/29 from the craziest bottle share that i have ever been a part of. Thanks so much to the NYC and Hoboken crew for letting me participate in this incredible day of drinking long time wants and insanity.

Thanks kindly for sharing.

a - looks just like the 5 glasses of amazing sours in front of me. yellow orange with thin foamy orange head.
s - fresh peaches...yum
t - fresh peaches again. outrageous. finish is a bit odd with a little up tick of booziness, but the flavoring is really nice otherwise.
m - a bit boozy, kind of like peachy sangria
o - really great peach flavor. feels like peach vodka with fresh peaches swimming in it.

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.

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.

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.

Batch 2

A - Pours a hazy, lighter orange with a one finger cream-colored head with big bubbles that slowly fade.

S - Sweet peaches, some Brett, and a touch of butter oak.

T - Brett, then wood, and finishes with some peach.

D - Super soft, Decent carbonation with a medium body.

O - Not a peach explosion as I remembered from Batch 1, but a nice balance and very layered. Super brew!

Bottle (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, cavemanlawyer!

Hazy golden orange and peach in color with a quickly forming, persistent near-white head. High carbonation, as this one started bubbling over the bottle's lip upon cracking. This leaves the glass absolutely sticky with a thick film of lace down the glass. Gorgeously sticky!

A complex, marvelous, balanced, delicate, yet bold aroma. The Brett yeast is toned down when compared side-by-side with the straight Bretta version, though here it's marvelously complementary as opposed to in your face. The addition of the peach and additional wood notes is striking yet delicate. This is a peach/funk/earth lollipop. Yes, please!

Peach and white fruits dominate, as initially this beer almost seems too sweet. It doesn't take long to realize that it isn't, as there's a very nice earthy and funky bitterness that complements the ripe peach notes, along with a hint of wood and even more barnyard funk.

Medium bodied, creamy, with moderate-high carbonation.

Simply phenomenal. I wish I could drink this by the barrel.

750mL bottle.

A: Very cloudy yellow. Good lacing. Slides off the glass.

N: Intense peach. Dry earthiness. Some light lemon and citrus.

T: Sour, sugary peaches. More of the lemon. Some herbal bitterness and pine floor. The brettanomyces are making their presence known with some dry funk. Not much oak here, surprisingly, but I wouldn't call it a defect.

M: The saison mouthfeel dominates here, in a good way. Light and airy. No alcohol. Can't believe it.

O: Goodness in a bottle, and I wish this wasn't such a limited release. Definitely not a beer for people who hate this particular stone fruit, though. I'm hesitant to age my other bottle because I'm afraid the peaches will disappear.

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.

Millions of Peaches, peaches for me. Millions of peaches peaches for free!

A- Golden and hazy. Heavy head that spilled out of the bottle at open. Even after th first pour kept bubbling. Really nice color ana great head.

S-Peaches and funk. the fruit is up front and then the brett funk comes through great. An awesome smell for a brett beer. True brett characteristics and a great fruit character.

T-Again peaches, in such an awesome way. It actually is almost like peaches and cream. The brett gives it a creamy taste. An at 10% ABV!? It tastes like 5% easily. One of the most drinkable higher abv beers that I have had.

M-Bubbly crisp and clean. Sharp on the tongue and then easy on the palette.

O-Goddamn this is a good beer. THe peaches are so prevalent and taste. The brett characteristics are spot on and again the peach is so tasty. This beer is dangerous at 10%. Luckily it was hard to come by. This one and one for the cellar until the next release. David Logsdon touche.

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.
