Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bgramer on 09-28-2012

Our organic Oak Aged Bretta is made with our Seizoen Bretta that is aged for a period of time to develop the wood aged character in the beer. Oak Tannins, vanilla notes and subtle smoky spiciness soften and mellow this beer over time.

The aged unfiltered beer is refermented and carbonated in the bottle with select yeast strains to provide added dryness and complexity, then sealed with beeswax for additional aging. Store bottles upright in a cool dark place and enjoy for many years in a proper glass.

Poured from 750 ml bottle into teku.

Pours a hazy copper with a 2 finger off white head. Big lacing.

Huge lemon peel, spices, caramel, Brett.

Honey, biscuit, lemon peel, slight sourness, funk, spices

Very nice beer, oak seems to mellow out the feel and flavor. Adds a depth to bretta to go along with lemon peel and spices.

Thanks to Ryan for sharing this one. Served in a taster pint glass.

A - Big off-white foam settles to a thick cap, leaving splotchy lace behind. Murky dark orange body - either this is unfiltered or the yeast got seriously roused.

S - Tons of oak and brett - guess I shouldn't be too surprised. It's the dirty and farmy brett rather than the fruity strain, and there's a slight medicinal flavor going on. The malt character is very grain-forward, with almost no residual sweetness. The base yeast imparts some phenolic and peppery notes. Odd, but strangely compelling.

T - I like the taste a bit more, as it's got some nice stone fruit and vanilla sweetness as well as a mild sour bite to the finish mixed in with the oak. There's better balance, with more Saison and less wild ale, but it's still a little too oaky for me.

M - Dry, with zesty carbonation, a medium body, and a lightly acidic finish. Tannic and oaky - guess that shouldn't surprise too much at this point. I didn't get a ton of alcohol here either.

D - Nice stuff, but not as amazing as Peche 'n Brett. I found it to be a tad over-attenuated and oaky, but there were still enough compelling flavors to make it eminently enjoyable. I'd be interested to see how this ages.

Bottle (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, libbey!

(Aged for 1 year)

Hazed, yellow and golden with a moderately sized off-white head that leaves spiderwebs of gorgeous lace all the way down the glass.

Very nice, appropriate, aroma of Brett funk, earth, hay, grass, mild hops, and a bit of pepper. Small amount of oak.

The flavor is just as nice as the aroma with the Brett playing the largest flavor role, balanced nicely by moderate bitterness, earth, grass, hay, mild oak, and a little spice.

Medium bodied with high carbonation.

A joy to drink. I've had this probably four times now and have loved it each time.

Pours quite dark for the style with a small head that fades quickly. Smells tart, very brett-forward, with only light hints of whiskey. No discernible fruit complexities, not even as it warms, but the balance is nice.

Tastes much more complex than it smells. Tart cherry nodes up front remain present throughout but morph as they mellow, producing hints of sherbert and melons before smoothing out into a spicy, lightly boozy saison.

Had on tap at The Sixgill and Urban Family.

A: A hazy orange with a slight golden hue. A nice off-white tan head on top, rather foamy with great retention and sticky lacing.

S: Lots of brett on the aroma, slightly funky and barnyardy. There is a good bit of oak coming through and a little bit of butter. There is some fruit as well, a bit of lemon and orange as well.

T: A bit nicer than the aroma, fruit flavors shine a bit stronger - some lemon, orange, and stone fruit. Lots of oak with a bit of vanilla and a slightly chalky flavor as well. A little bit of brett funk as well.

M: Medium bodied, rather smooth with a creaminess to it. A little dry and chalky though.

O: Very nice, a little oaky and dry. After having the un-oaked version, I find myself liking that one more as the fruit was a bit more forward, but this was still very good.

750ml bottle into Lost Abbey stemware. Thanks!

A: Another Logsdon gusher. I had my glass ready and didn't lose a drop. Dark orange with a monstrous beige sea foam head that linger for five minutes, receding in craters and caverns and leaving tons of soapy lacing clinging to the glass.

S: Spicy pepper and floral characteristics with oak and a little vanilla. Malt is redolent of biscuit, bread, and grains. Notes of leather and earth pervade the senses. I get a lot of fruit: apple, pear, and lemon.

T: Firm oak presence with spicy floral and pepper-like notes. There's a good amount of fruit, bringing to mind honeydew melon, apricot, pear, lemon, and apple. The malt base is biscuity and lightly bready. The finish is fruity, spicy, leathery, earthy, and dry with a not insubstantial oak presence.

M: High carbonation and medium in body. The mouthfeel is dry and sticky.

Overall: A nice variation on Seizoen Bretta, though a little heavy on the oak. Recommended.

hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of tart lemon, biscuit, bread, nice cracker with hints of spice, yeast, nice grassy notes with a touch of tart and funky basement. Taste is a mix of tart, funky notes, hints of grass, bread, hints of lemon, oak and slight vanilla, touch of earth, finishing bitter, dry, slight tart fruit.

A - Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a finger of thick frothy white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet grainy and bready malts, Brett, tart green fruits, vanilla, oak, lemon zest, farmhouse aromas, spices, and a bit of sourness.

T - Starts off with a mix of sweet grainy malts, tart green fruits, lemon zest, vanilla, and some light spices. Through the middle, the oak comes through with some Brett, farmhouse flavors, some sourness, and a bit more spice. The finish is a mix of tart Brett character, green fruits, oak, vanilla, lemon zest, farmhouse flavors, and some spices.

M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a tart, dry, and lightly sour finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice complex sour beer with great balance. The oak is a nice touch as well.

This one is a gusher. Pours a murky/hazy orange color with a large white head with a hint of orange. Scent is funky brett up front. Some grass and must. A good amount of citrus with some peppery spiciness. Tart green apples and just a tad bit of smoke. Some floral and oak notes as well. The nose really has a lot going on here. Taste is initially floral, but just a tad....which is good. Tart, brett-like flavors up front with a good amount of spicy yeast backbone. Some lovely oak and vanilla with just a hint of butter. Thought this one would be a little more sour, but it may develop more in the bottle. Finishes crisp with more pepper and lemon. Mouthfeel is dry and medium bodied. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this is a spectacular brew. Very drinkable and extremely tasty. Logsdon has done some great things so far.

Bottle # OAB 2013

Appearance. Pours a hazy copper-gold topped with two fingers of cream coloured head.

Smell. Nice funky brett, honey and sweet light malts, some citrus fruits and fresh oak, and maybe a bit of melon.

Taste. Tons of toasted oak, funky brett and orchard fruits, citrus fruit flesh, light peppery spice, low level of sourness, and a bit of sweet and smooth light malt. Very nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium+ carbonation.

Overall. Great stuff.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into cervoise. Bottle number 10190. Best by 07-2019.
A: Opens...and immediately starts coming out the top of the bottle. Pours a very hazy yellow-orange with huge frothy white head (3-4 inches+) that slowly recedes. Decent lacing. A tad aggressive on the carbonation. (4)
S: Soft honey, fresh melon, citrus (sweet orange and tart lemon), white pepper, vanilla, and almond cream. Quite nice and refreshing. (4.5)
T: An oaky vanilla hits first--very chardonnay-like--followed by tart brett, bright citrus, white pepper spice with hints of honey and lemon custard. I like the impact the oak aging had on this one. (4.25)
M: Light-medium body. Bright and refreshing throughout. Tart (brett) and sweet (fruit and honey) with a solidifying oak quality (makes it feel a bit heavier). Subtle carbonation prickles. Mildly dry finish. Lovely lingering and maturing on the palate. One of the highlights of an already solid beer. (4.5)
D: A delicate yet deep brew. Refreshing with nice complexity. Logsdon does an excellent job with saisons! (4.5)

Pours a murky effervescent orange color with a big egg shell white foam head that settles to a thick whispy cap, leaving splotchy lacing on the glass.

Aromas begin with a substantial amount of lighter fruits like green apple and grape skin and then some solid but not overbearing oak presence. Next I get the yeast induced aromas of earth and light spice along with a clean light crackery, pilsner malt base. The Bretty must and funk emerges more and more as it warms.

The tastes follow the nose with light crackery breadiness and then some earthy, slightly musty and funky yeast flavors. The pilsnery and light crackery malt base is there all along, as it the oak. Some phenolic spiciness with a light non-discript fruitiness. The oak and rustic funk emerges more as it warms as well.

The mouthfeel is medium boided with medium carbonation. Finish is lighly dry and oaky but mainly clean for the most part with balanced earthiness and yeast induced Saison doughy quality.

Overall this is by far the best Saison I have ever had. It is extremely drinkable, almost to a dangerous degree given this is 8% ABV which is crazy and completely undetectable. The oak really works well with the Brett Yeast and light Saison malt bill. Logsdon is really killing this style and I look forward to sampling more of their offerings down the road.

Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottle # OAB 552. Best by 9/2017.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus fruit, wood, and Brett. Taste is much the same with a slight tartness. There is a mild bitterness with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great aromas and flavors.

750ml into a tulip. Pours a fully hazed dull orange butterscotch, egg cream colored head retains nicely, sheet lacing.

The aroma is a delight, tremendous complexity. Hints of sweaty dirt, tartness, bright clean citrus. reluctant to taint it with a sip

south pacific tropical fruits
sharp dry twang, pepper and spices
never more sour than tart
initial sips result in incessant lip smacking
a delicious moment in the evolution of the brett
not yet wild
Lively slightly less than medium mildly astringent mouthfeel

750mL (bottle #OAB 72, best by 09/2017) into a Hennepin glass. Pours a hazy glowing orange w/ a big white fluffy head that leaves behind patches of lace. Good vigorous carbonation.

Aroma is grassy and funky, not quite tart. Pungent, slightly vinous.

Taste is dry, funky, tropical, spicy. Fresh oranges, wet hay, Brett yeast. Apple and pear juice. Oak is there too, in the background, but I don't know that I'd be able to identify it if I didn't already know.

Mouthfeel is balanced, lively, crisp with a dry woody finish.

Overall yet another rock-solid saison/farmhouse ale from Logsdon.

Poured on tap at Trappist Provisions into a 6oz wine glass. Review is from my notes. I was a fan of Soizoen, so I was excited to try this, especially on tap.

Pours a deep, very cloudy red-amber color complete with a frothy, creamy white head. Carbonation in this thing is massive, often coating the sides with strings of bubbles. There's a ton of lacing that sticks around, as well as a viscous character that makes the whole thing look juicy as if it were some pulp focused fruit beverage. Totally rustic and wholly presentable.

The aroma is less sour than I expected, especially in light of the oak focused flavor here. Juicy, plump fruitiness immediately meets my nostrils, ranging from dried cider, earthy apples, apricots, oranges, tamarind, as well as an undeniably huge grassy flavor, one which I would liken to fresh seasonal grass as soon as Spring rolls around. The Brett is ever present, but it's subtle enough, to the point of accentuating the crisp, vibrant sensations from the earthy grains and grassy hops and making everything seem more lively. Then, the oak comes into play and adds an extra robustness to the flavors that slightly sours everything, but also adds a woody, slightly sweet feel that adds to the fruity character of the beer.

This is absolutely delicious, and right from the first sip I knew this was going to be a great journey from the beginning to the end. From the beginning, you're immediately pelted with slightly sour, slightly candied apple/cider flavors, combined with a grassy bouquet and spices such as tamarind and cardamom. There's a dried, leafy sensation at the back that slowly builds up, but it's really the overarching flavor from the oak and wild yeast strains that making their magic here. Super thickened, hearty, but not heavy at all, with a woody finish that lasts for a long while with tannins that finish slightly sour, but overall crisp and even a little buttery. I'd say the butterscotch like malts are doing a terrific job here, and melds quite well with the wood. It does feel a little heavy on the wood as it warms up, but the Brett and fruity notes are tasty enough to make this an easy yet satisfying drinking experience. Thick as all hell - the carbonation is in full perfection here.

Yet another excellent beer from Logsdon Farmhouse Ales - the wood adds extra charm and character to their already great saison base beer. These guys are making these beers the right way, and indeed, probably one of the few in the country who know how to meld oak with Brett in a saison so flawlessly. Fruity, full bodied, crisp, but undeniably complex. I loved this!

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.

Huge thanks to JayORear for the bottle. Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Hazed amber gold. Head is creamy, dense, and off-white. Sticky, clumpy lacing with great retention. Moderate to high carbonation.

Smell: Powdery yeast with a soft clove and touch of banana. Slight bretty tartness on the backside. Light bready malts. Some backing sweetness with some melon. Oak adds a nice woody layer to the back. Some apple. Touches of tropical fruit, mango mostly. Some peach. Some alcohol and a minor push of vanilla and a ton of oak.

Taste: Oak and spice. Soft yeast with a big ripe banana. Pear, peach, mango, and some apple. Loaded with fresh oak and some vanilla. Fruity tannins. Light pale sweet malts. Nice biscuit/bready component. Barnyard funk with some musty grass and hay. Slight tart edge. Loaded with Brett funk, smoothed out by the barrel. Raw honey. Some lactic tartness as well. Deep yeast complexity. Warming let's the tart edge jump up and smooths out some of the esters.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body with a moderate and lively carbonation. Juicy initial sip with a lingering dry finish. A bit juicy overall.

Overall: The bunghole is no longer inviolate.

Seizoen Beretta is good, this is stupid good. The oak makes it a bit more complex, and that's a scary thought. More of this would never be a bad thing.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this #beerection

Appearance: Deep orange, with some rich golden highlights - pours with a thick, creamy, huge head - sticks around and keeps a solid cap - leaves a solid web of lacing - nothing short of pretty

Smell: Yeasty magic - loads of Brett, with some complex funk - powdery and ripe - ridiculously fruity, with a ton of esters - pears, apples, and some other light fruits - orange and tangerine - extremely floral with some perfume-like aromas - base of pale malts and grains - lightly woody, oak is mostly subtle

Taste: Fantastic blend of funky Brett and crisp fruit - dry, powdery, wildly funky Brett, with some barnyard, some clove, some pepper, and some phenols - touch of tart and sour - yeasty funk goes well with some serious fruit flavor - pears, apples, white grapes, and tangerines - a touch of malt sweetness from the pale malts - oak works quite well, definitely there but not overpowering

Mouthfeel: Medium body, very smooth, excellent carbonation, finishes dry and clean

Overall: You could age Seizoen Bretta in a toilet and it would still be awesome

The oak here is nice, but it's not particularly mind-blowing. What's mind-blowing is the Seizoen Bretta. It's such a fantastic, fantastic saison.

750ml bottle, split

OAB #93

appearance: classic logsdon labeling, lightly waxed, served in delirium chalice - bright, cloudy orange body, thick creamy white head with sticky laced retention

smell: vibrant brett yeast profile, raw oak barrel, spice, some tart fruit

taste: a lovely variation of a great beer - fortunate enough to walk into a few bottles. Much like the base beer, the brett is front and center. Oak and vanilla round this out very nicely but the funky and sour components keep this a pretty interesting experience until the end

mouthfeel: dry finish, creamy decadent mouthfeel, strong carbonation

A: A solid copper orange with active streams of carbonation. Topped with a thick and pillowy pale beige head, the head holds up well against the glass and valleys towards the centre. Retention is strong and holds up a concentrated and compact layer of variable foam.

S: Smells of the bretta yeast, with tart fruit - lemons, sour orange & sour plum along with subtle wet wood. All bundled up in a smooth creamy profile, presumably from the oak, offering a creamy smoothness. Tangy and creamy.

T: Forward bretta yeast with sour and pithy lemons, but tempered with a smooth creamy vanilla and soft pepper. Solid mineral flavours that support the bretta and contrast the creamy oaky-ness. Finishes chalky and dry similar to a champagne.
Complimentary & contrasting flavours - all working together harmoniously.

M: Subtle buzz of carbonation up front leading to a tango of creamy chewy-ness and dry chalky-ness. After taste holds and coats the palette with both smooth vanilla creaminess and mineral chalk.

O: Lots of complimentary and contrasting aspects in the smell, taste and mouth feel. It's refreshing and approachable, while still offering complex aspects, reminiscent of a good champagne. A strong beer at 8% the alcohol is not noticeable in the smell or taste. Simple, delicious and approachable.

This beer absolute delivers on the title. It tastes like their Seizoen Bretta but with big oaky flavors. Logsdon beers are so well made. This one is definitely one I'd take to a tasting. The oak notes are huge on the nose and on the palate. The wood does drown out a bit of the pear notes, but the brett still shines. Such a well made and delicious beer. The big flavors and bottle size make it perfect for sharing.

Serving Type: Bottle (Best By 6/2019)
Consumed: 9.11.15

A: 4.25 After finally making it through the beeswax, the beer is a moderate gusher; pretty easy to get under control. Pours a somewhat hazy, but very pretty, reddish-gold with a huge off-white head.

S: 4.5 Aromas are very similar to the regular version. Moderate funk and hay mixing in with bright, tart aromas like green apples, lemon, and grass. Classic saison elements bring esters and honey, bridging the funk and tart aromas beautifully.

T: 4.75 Flavors follow the nose somewhat, but in an unexpected way. The start is classic saison, but moves quickly to funk and hay with fairly strong oak tannins. After the light dryness fades away, bright lemony tartness moves in with lots of green apple. The next wave of tannic dryness sets in bringing more nuanced funk flavors like aged cheese. The finish is long and dry and leaves a toasted bread flavor lingering.

M: 4.5 Despite the gushing, the carbonation is actually really nice and not over the top. The body is also really nice with the dryness helping out drinkability.

O: 4.75 I love the regular version of this beer; when it’s oak aged, it gets even better, adding even more complexity to an already great and subtle beer. This may not be up to Bernice level, but it’s very close and one of the best brett saisons I’ve had.
