4.43/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- A tiny bit gushed out of the bottle before I poured, so be careful. Pours up a good bunch of head which has excellent retention. The head is a pure cotton-white while the body is a hazy and dull pale amber which appears brighter when held up to the light. A good amount of lacing with slight patches of sheeting.

Nose- There are definitely peaches used in the making of this beer. Very well rounded and very smooth with light notes of other stone fruits like apricots. Some apple and banana and a slight note of pears. Redolent without being overbearing. Swirling doesn't add anything to the picture.

Taste- Starts off with a front of peach that promises to be quite powerful but fades rather quickly. Slight woodiness from the hop bitterness. Slight funk and straw on the finish. Very tasty but not exactly the peach bomb I was expecting. Slight tartness and faint hints of acetic acid. Some cherry and other stone fruits plus a mild note of pears. This is very smooth and very well rounded to the point that this beer has incredible balance integration. No hint at all of the 10%. Very easygoing and delicate. Light barnyard, mushrooms, stinky cheese, straw, and armpit around the edges. I wish these aspects had more presence because that would definitely give this beer more character. Slight oak but this beer is mostly about the peach. Never cloying but always present, its presence makes it a must for peach lovers. Really good beer that shows inclinations of being great. No flaws at all and extremely drinkable. Such sublimity that I think it can be considered a great beer. This is a beer that really grows on you. Some hints of orange and lemon make this somewhat mimosa like or what I imagine a mimosa made with peach juice would be light. Nice dry finish really cleans up the flavor profile well. The pear juice works perfectly in concert with the peach notes.

Mouthfeel- So light bodied that this tends toward airy. Light carbonation works really well for this beer. It doesn't make your tongue tingle but there is a mild and smooth effervescence that works well for this beer.

Drinkability- Extremely drinkable to the point of being dangerous. It's so good that it's easy to ignore how good it is. Fortunately, it's pretty hard to get or I might being spending 20 bucks a pop on these frequently.

Overall- Great beer that is definitely worth the 20 bucks. I would definitely take one of these over any Cascade beer (not that they're necessarily comparable but in regard to the price point). Reminds me a lot of La Fin du Monde which also doesn't have great complexity but is exceptional at the few things it does do. A must try if you can get your hands on it. While I'm scoring this lower than what I scored Seizoen Bretta, I'm under the impression that this is a better beer. I will have to sample the regular Bretta again to compare. (2,873 characters)

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? (1,002 characters)

Review #500. Served at the January tasting at the Taproom. Thanks to Darren for bringing this! One of my top wants, which for some reason has been impossible to find every time it's released. Poured out of a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. I believe this is last year's release.

Logsdon is known in my mind for making nothing but gorgeous looking farmhouse ales, and this is no exception, in my mind. Looks a lot like fresh squeezed peach juice (or a combination of stone fruit, in general). Orange amber, with a thickness and cloudiness from the sediment and yeast, as well as a fluffy bone white head that covers the top of the glass in a graceful, imposing manner. Loses a bit of head retention over time, but leaves some sticky foam at the sides of the glass, thankfully enough. Really appetizing looking overall.

Not what I expected at all at the nose - while the stone fruit is displayed predominantly but the addition of peaches, as well as the malt profile at hand, the Brett has definitely made its mark on the beer in a funky yet strange appealing manner. At first, there's a blast of peaches, nectarines, and apricots (oh God, my mouth is actually watering as I write this), and then barnyard funkiness from the Brett, displaying notes of wet hay, some leather, and cheese. Lots and lots of cheese, particularly the goat cheese that stone fruit is often stuffed in. By a mere chance, apricot goat cheese happens to be one of my favorite things, so this isn't too off putting for me. Finishes tart on the nose, with an astringency from the yeast. Very wild, and very rustic, but I would have never guessed the alcohol was so high here.

The flavor is even funkier and intense, but it's really one of the most memorable American wild ales I've had in quite a while. Strong notes of peach concentrate, apricots, orange, and light pine meld with the funky qualities from the Brett, showing big cheese rind notes, leather, and wet hay. The oak qualities work their magic at the end and hold up the fort rather well, displaying lactic sweet flavors, as well as light tobacco and vanilla. This, in turn, accentuates a sweeter creamier factor that rounds out the Brett and gives the impression of eating actual goat cheese with stuffed dried peaches and apricots. The finishing touch of baking soda (a classic from Logsdon, as seen in their Saison Brett) cleanses the palate and gets you ready for each sip. Sweet, tart, funky, slightly saline, and creamy all at the same time. The carbonation is phenomenal here, done in the same vein as a sparkling wine. Gentle and enticing - very complex, and very refreshing.

This is a 20 proof beer?? No way - I could easily down an entire bottle of this without complaint. I would love to have a fresher bottle and open it right away, but the Brett here seems to build on some wonderful, creative aspects towards the beer's development. This could easily be the best beer Logsdon has made so far, and it's impressive that they've made a beer of this caliber so drinkable, and readily available for any occasion, as well. Excellent stuff! (3,084 characters)

This beer is exactly what it says it is.

Reviewers that are looking for a very tart wild ale will think that this doesn't live up the hype, but this beer never claims that. This is a saison with brett, crammed into an oak barrel and then fermented with peaches and then pear juice.

The nose is perfectly fragrant with peaches and brett.

The fruit comes through perfectly and plays harmoniously with the brett.

This beer is so delicate, that you have to close your eyes while you sip so that your senses are opened to the mastery that this liquid is.

To me, this beer is perfect because I can read a fucking label. (621 characters)

This beer might be as good as it gets for me especially in terms of style. Logsdon makes an unreal saison. Their brett version is one of my top ten beers I've had and I love peaches. This beer delivered all of that. The color of the body almost had a peach skin note to it. The beer smells of fresh peaches. The taste is everything that is great about Seizoen Bretta but with beautful peach and floral notes. I can't recommend this enough and can't wait to get myself a bottle. (477 characters)

4.52/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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. (1,304 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle. Best before 12/2017. Served in a Russian River stemmed glass

Appearance: Hazy golden orange color with some visible carbonation streaming throughout. There was less than a finger of a white head that dissipated quickly leaving a collar around the edges of the glass.

Smell: As one might expect peaches are the first thing you get in the aroma. It's more of a sour peach candy aroma than it is fresh peach skin or flesh. In addition to the peaches, there's some bretty funk, lemon, pepper, citrus, and pear.

Taste: Peaches, apricot, some barnyard funk, lactic acid, white grape, slight breadiness, and a some peppery yeast. Sourness is low, and balanced by a mild bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with medium levels of prickly carbonation. If it weren't printed on the label, I'd have never believed the ABV on this beer. It drinks more like 4% than 10%. This is hands down the most drinkable high ABV beer I've ever had.

Overall: This is an excellent beer and I'm glad I got the chance to try it. I still can't get over how drinkable this is. I had to stop myself from gulping it down too quickly. Definitely recommend seeking out a bottle or two. (1,185 characters)

750ml bottle...another crazy hard to get peachy beer at a recent tasting. This one generously shared by jlindros. Poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anny glass.

A - Pours a pale golden color with a cloudy overall appearance. A short cap of foamy white head forms and lingers briefly and falls to leave a thin collar.

S - Quite bretty with some nice funk. Sweet and quite peachy, a bit cool with some herbal qualities, fruity overall with some additions of grapey aromas too.

T - Surprsingly, not all that peachy. I get other flavors - notably grapes...very juicy. A bit on the dry side, fairly earthy and lots of dry brett character.

M - Dry overall. I get the odd flavor of artificial sweeteners/diet soda. Body is light with a lighter carbonation as well. Disappointing a bit with the lighter than expected fruit aspect.

O - Had very high hopes for this beer...not bad at all, but a bit of a letdown considering my expectations. Not nearly as peachy as I had hoped...overall quite dry and earthy in character with a strong alcoholic aspect that detracts a bit. (1,065 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)

A-Cloudy orange, two finger head, leaves nice lacing.

S-Holy peaches! Perfect amount, not artificial at all. Tad bit of oak and grass.

T-Not as sour as I was expecting, still tart though. Great deal of peaches, a little too much for my tastes.

M-Medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

O-A tad bit more sour notes and this could be perfect. Easily the best peach beer on the market. (384 characters)

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

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.

This beer looks like a peach. Very hazy, with a dark yellow orange color and a very full off-white head. A nice bit of lace marks the sides of the glass.

The aroma is light, sweet peach mostly. There is a bit of an acidic sour note. A bit of funk is in the background, but not much.The fruit flavor does not come through as fully in the nose as I would want. The nose is softer than I like in my sours.

The flavor could be peaches and cream, although it would be a light version. The flavor has a crisp, tart, peach flavor with a bit of cream. There is a bit of funk to it, but this beer is rather light and simple for my taste. The finish is a little bit dry.

The mouthfeel is rather light for a 10% beer. It is a little bit tart, and there is a bit of creaminess, but overall it is a bit tame. The carbonation is light and creamy, with a dry and sour finish.

This is a well-made beer, but as a lover of puckering sour beers, this just does not get there. It has a high ABV and a saison finish, but it does not have the intense sour fruit notes I enjoy. (1,102 characters)

Bottle with massive props to jbuddle. Shared at tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Fully opaque cumquat with a vibrant white head which abates very slowly leaving a tight spider web lattice.

Tart and tangy peach, like a cross between peach Pez and vitamin C tablets, alongside plenty of sweaty horse-blanket funk. Bright, clean and snazzy.

Drier flavours with considerable acidity. Earthy peach, lemon-lime and hay.

Medium to full with somewhat aggressive carbonation and mild booze heat.

Rollicking fruit Saison, if a little too big for its boots. Bemused as to why this needed to be 10% (588 characters)

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. (530 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)

Sweet apricot nectar aroma, low to mid carbonation, wheat, sweet fruity nectar taste, tart - not creamy, sweet nectar linger. But not too sweet! Delicious. Gets more tasty with warmth.

Bought a bottle from the brewery and shared it five days later in a hotel room with one other; Logsdon Farmhouse Ales, Hood River, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com (450 characters)

Bottle No. P3746 (from the January 2013 IIRC, celleared upon release). Poured into my large St. Feuillien goblet, Peche 'n Brett is chill hazed burnt gold with a creamy, tight bubbled white head leaving sheets of foamy lace.

Smell is gorgeously soft, sweet peaches and pear nectar. The brett flutters through the fruit oh so subtly, adding just a touch of depth. Really fantastic.

Taste is also soft, the peach evident yet softened by the drying brett, which is really rather clean, while still making it's presence known. Perhaps just a touch understated, but the delicate nuance really adds the drinkability.

Mouthfeel is soft and dry, with fine carbonation.

Drinkability is high, it's really hard to believe this is 10% ABV. Not to mention how subtle the brett and sweetness from the fruits are, no palate wrecker here, just extremely balanced. What an elegant beer, fantastic. (888 characters)

Big thanks to Jedwards for the final pre-move blowout cellar crash. Pours a hazy tangerine hue with a loose, quarter inch, bright white head that dissipates into a consistent slick. The nose on this beer is fantastic - peach cocktail. Taste is lightly tart with peaches and perhaps apricots. Mouthfeel is light and lively with an assertive acidity. This beer is pretty incredible I have to say. I don't get much Brett, but lots of peach and an extremely well-hidden abv. (470 characters)

My first Logsdon's beer that really didn't gush after cracking it. Gorgeous cloudy orange juice color with fine, scattered beading. An appropriate finger of bone white head forms pinpoint lacing and noticeable booze legs before settling back to form a thin cap on the beer. Absolutely stunning just to look at.

Bold, semisweet peach explodes from the glass. Floral, incredibly fresh fruit flesh melded with sour white grape, pear skins and a mildly acidic citrus quality.

Wow. I really didn't know what to expect on the palate... Like nothing else I can think of... It's a work of art. Bright orange and peach flavors collide with dry funky Brett, fresh oak and juicy pear.

Wonderfully soft velvet consistency provides the perfect vehicle for the flavors described.

Big thanks to harrymel for this gem! (806 characters)

Served on tap into a snifter

A- Poured a very hazy tangerine orange color with off-white ring of head that left no lace

S- Sweet candied peaches and mandarin orange, brett funk

T- Sweet candied peaches and mandarin oranges and some brett funk. Undercurrent of tartness throughout most of the beer and then finishes quite sour, also finishes with a pretty sharp bitterness

M- Light boded, very low carbonation, it does finish a little watery and became more watery as it warmed up some

O- The flavor and aroma are nice, but not as complex or pleasant as the Seizoen Bretta I had just two weeks ago. The mouthfeel held this back for me quite a bit, a little too watery but a nice brett beer. Can't believe this is 10%, it drinks like a 4%, very light. (754 characters)

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)

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)

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)

1762nd Review on BA
Bottle to Blue Palms taster
750 ML

Batch 2

Shared with GuruDel and MrHyschybar

App- When this came out of the bottle. It was a very dark orange with a bit of a haze to it. The bubbles were a bit small and didnt leave any cling like a normal saison would. The barrel took some of the carbonation away and left more a dark color.

Smell- I was expecting an explosion of deep barnyard "funk" with the oak balancing things out and then the peche coming in to tie it all together. The peche was a bit small on this one and the ABV made for a unique balancing act of aromas on this one. A bit of a crushed damp wheat smell was in there as well.

Taste- Well I have to say I was a bit let down. Maybe I thought it would be more like V010 (Which I havent had) I was expecting maybe this giant peche explosion with a Rayon vert like flavor to just blow me away. I got more of the wood barrel and small funk with only a small bit of peche behind it. Well layered but lacking in "pop" for me.

Mouth- This had a good feel behind it. A bit medium in body with a good amount of thick carbonation with a solid funk residual flavors behind it. The peche didnt stick around for very long and the barrel seemed to dominate again with that crushed wheat flavor.

Drink- It was a good beer, but again didnt blow me away. I think letting a bottle sit, might help. I truly feel this wouldve been better as say a wild ale with more of a light flavor and more peche behind it. I am glad this was at a share and not a traded bottle. (1,531 characters)
