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)

Pour is hazy golden yellow with a tight slightly off white head. Nose is light of peach fuzz, light dusty funk, cobweb, faint cheese. Taste is light, soft peach, dusty Brett and faint cheese, assertive carbonation, fairly dry finish and a well done light sourness through the back. (281 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)

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)

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)

Thanks to anadune for this one, super high up there on my "wants" list, glad to finally see this one go. I love peaches and I love Brett, so this beer should do me well. Pours a brilliant sunburst color with hints of golden-peach flowing about. Cloudy and opaque for the most part with a foamy white head that has decent retention.

Whoof! Talk about funk! The aroma hits hard, right out of the gate, and doesn't let up. Copious amounts of Brett just unleash and unload on the senses - barnyard funk, damp cellar, and wet hay. And then, of course, the peaches! There's a vibrant peach presence that underlines the funky body of the beer - it's sweet, juicy, and authentic, and perhaps most importantly - it's not overdone at all. Rather than control or overtake the aroma, the peaches just accent it, and inject their juicy goodness in a moderate but noticeable amount, a nearly perfect complement to the barnyard funk. Sweet and funky all at once - how can you not love that? The oak can be found once you "search" for it, and once you find it, it doesn't go away. Beautiful woody tones round out this excellently aromatic profile. Exquisite.

I couldn't have been more excited to finally bring this one to my lips... as soon as it hits my palate, the funk just plants itself in my mouth and never lets go. This bitch is SUPER funky; tons of barnyard, horsey sweat, musty earth, cheesy-funk... Absolutely crazy. The oak makes a big comeback and tastes much more robust than it smelled - works perfectly with the insane amounts of Brett that are going wild right now. And then again - just like an epiphany similar to the aroma - the peaches just squeeze their way in, quietly and unobtrusively, adding just the right amount of presence and flavor. Seriously, they could not have been added to this beer in a more perfect amount. Enough to tame the Brett and keep your taste buds working, but not enough to overpower and turn this thing into a peach cobbler.

I wouldn't necessarily describe this beer as "sour", but there certainly is a light tartness that hits you initially with the onslaught of Brett. By the time the peaches take the forefront, the tartness will have faded and the beer takes on a lovely sweetness that nicely combines with (and is probably aided by) the peach flavors. My friend and I were surprised to find out this beer was clocking in at 10% ABV - there's just no possible way that much alcohol can be masked so well. Honestly, this drinks just as easily as the Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen gueuzes we had previously, and those contain nearly half the alcohol. Peche n' Brett has a medium body; sharp, slick, and wet mouth feel with a medium-high amount of carbonation.

Wow, what a truly unique and amazing beer. Perfect amount of peaches and a nice compliment to their wonderful Brett profile. I thought this one was a huge improvement over the Seizoen Bretta (although that was still very good). Took me by surprise, but I hope I'll have the chance to enjoy this one again. Top notch. (3,013 characters)

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. (421 characters)

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)

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)

750ml waxed bottle from late 2011 / early 2012 batch.

Appearance: Classic tawny orange hazy body with a 2 finger off white billowy crown that shows great retention and lace.

Smell: A lovely medley of peach, saison yeast, a bit of brett funk, a hint of aspirin, and a sour tinge.

Taste: Faint peach, light brett funk, a muted acidity, a bit of aspirin, a bit of flinstones chewables, the faintest whisper of band aid, alcohol peaking through momentarily to say hello, with a slightly metallic finish.

Mouthfeel: Thick side of thin bodied with moderate carbonation but a nice creamy crown that really helps.

Overall: Other than the flavor profile, this is a really solid saison. I can only hope that a fresher batch would be tastier and hope to track one down at some point. (780 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.

Reviewed from notes. 2012 vintage. Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- Pours cloudy orange color with a 1 finger white head. Minimal lacing.

S- Honey, sweet peaches, tartness.

T- Light honey, sour peaches, some earthiness, and musty

M- Medium body and carbonation. Very light for a 10% beer, that drinks like a 6% beer.

O- Nice saison with some tart and sweet peaches. (394 characters)

i'll cut right to the chase

smell, exactly as the name states, I get some peaches and some brett sour funk, little else and not particularly inviting

taste- of course this is not a bad beer, but given the hype and subsequent expectations,this is a huge letdown. it is a one note peach and some light light funk right at the front of the tongue and fades to a dry metallic flavor. I understand this is 10% and I give the brewers a ton of credit for this attempt but certainly falls way short compared to the top dogs in this game. Competing with AWA's of the world and other lambics and guezes, it wouldn't stand a chance.

I always use baseball analogies whenever possible and if you compare this to a top Awa ( RR, LA, guezes) It would be like me facing pedro martinez in his prime, if I am peche n brett and the big dogs of the sour game are pedro.

I will say as it warmed it improved modestly with some more funk notes permeating the palate , but unless you can get it on the cheap and don't have to give up much in a trade, i'd rather just spend that money on some RR varieties with a good sushi lunch . (1,112 characters)

huge thanks to egrace for sharing this bottle!

poured into tulip glass.

reviewed from notes.

Had Peche 'n Brett side by side with Fantastia b2.

Appearance: opaque orange bodied beer with thin white head that drops down to no head.

Smell: light notes of peaches and dried apricots. Musty basement funkiness. Yeasty.

Taste: Musky funk forward with brett notes. Hint of peaches and possibly some citrus notesas well. Finishes with more funk, oak and earthiness becomes more pronounced.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Carbonation is at the perfect level. It has soft carbonation while remaining lively just as you would want it to be for this beer style. This beer is without a doubt the most light bodied beer sitting at 10% and its by a long shot. It drinks like its around 4 to 5% abv. Super drinkable and not even a hint of the 10% abv level. How Logsden did that with this beer has impressed me.

Overall: Really glad that I got to try this beer! Its the best beer that I have tried from Logsden! Fastastia just edged out the Peche 'n Brett in the side by side. (1,095 characters)

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. (514 characters)

750 ml bottle generously shared at the Peg's tasting on 3/8/13.

A- Pours a hazy peach... yellow color, topped with a thin white head.

S- Mostly a huge, huge load of peaches. Just a whole lotta peaches, which are juicy and fresh and awesome. There are also some notes of lactic acidity and mild brett notes.

T- Similar to the aroma, although the peaches are slightly toned down. Still, lots of fresh juicy peaches, lactic tartness, mild brett flavors and some oak.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth and nicely carbonated, dry finish. The alcohol is seriously invisible, can't believe it's 10%.

O- One of my new favorite peach beers, I've loved everything so far from Logsdon, this was a real treat. (694 characters)

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)

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)
