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.

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.

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.

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%

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
