4.05/5 rDev -5.8%
750 ml bottle best by June 2019. Served in a wine glass.
Appearance: Pours a copper orange color with 2 fingers of a creamy off white head that settles to a thin coating. Body is very hazy but translucent.
Smell: Lots of brett, pineapple, spice, banana, oak, honey and some hay.
Taste: Red apple, pear, citrus, mild spicy saison yeast character, banana and a touch of white grape in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and medium, fine carbonation. Finishes tart and dry.
Overall: Another really good beer from Logsdon. Definitely worth trying, but at around double the price, it's not really an improvement over their regular Seizoen Bretta.

4.46/5 rDev +3.7%
750ml bottle into tulip. Best by 03/2018.
A: Opened cold out of fridge to avoid inevitable gushing. I still had the crack the cap very slowly – this beer is volatile. Anyways, this beer pours a cloudy burnt amber color with a huge, frothy, active, and fluffy, cream colored head that, despite a slow pour, still foamed up and filled the glass. Huge chunks of rocky lace were left down the glass as the head eventually faded.
S: I get tons of brett on the nose, with scents of stone fruits (peach/apricot), straw/hay, and a touch of tart kiwi, and golden delicious apples. The oak is right there as well with hints of vanilla and woody spice. This beer smells amazing.
T: Brett flavors from the nose, mild spice, black pepper, woody oak, and golden fruits. Juicy overall. There are notes of wheat, earthy hops, and very mild savory smoke in the finish, and the aftertaste is dry, slightly bitter, earthy, and just a tad funky.
M: Medium-full body, greasy and slick mouthfeel with a drying finish (but not a desert), and soft and fluffy carbonation. Drinks well.
O: Insane nose and flavor. The brett and the oak mix expertly well together. Complex and quaffable.
