750ml bottle, whole foods westlake

appearance: really nice pour - cloudy straw-orange body, huge fluffy white head, big fluffy retention

smell: really nice - big belgian yeast body, citrus, white pepper

taste: I really like Logsdon beers - the farmhouse brewery scene is something I really enjoy - the fresh hop version brings a nice grassy citrus variation to the seizoen. Citrus peel, lemon, pepper, huge belgian yeast profile.

mouthfeel: fluffy, coating, yeasty

overall: very solid

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Hazy golden yellow. Nice white head. Wispy surface and lacing inside the glass.

Smell - Grassy hops. Pale malts. A ton of yeast and it's a little musty.

Taste - Hops less intense, but nice. Very malty and less yeasty. Slightly bitter and a little more complexity to the malt profile.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation and just a touch too malty for me.

Overall - Herbal hop flavors build as it warms.

Bottle, shared by bstyle, poured into a HF stem.

Pour: Hazy orange, with a billowing white head. Three fingers. Very sticky, and leaves great lacing.

Smell: Citrus fruits up front, with some lemon zest, and grass. Spicy pepper mingles with a distinct breadyness,

Taste: Woah. Citrus and green hoppiness. Lots of lemon zest, and a clean peppery bite. Bready sweetness is there, but only just. Finishes with a nice floral bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Super drinkable, and very dry. Lighter side on the body, but it’s quite refreshing.

Overall: Amazing beer, and highly underrated. A juicy and refreshing saison, that mingles with the aspects of an IPA. Beautiful.

A - Pours a pale, hazy light orange with a two inch foamy head with great retention and lots of lacing.

S - Hoppy pine and citrus. Some farmhouse yeast and spices come out as well.

T - Belgian yeast and spices up front, then some hoppy citrus and pine come out, subtle, but there. Finishes with some farmhouse yeast.

D - Good carbonation with a light body.

O - A saison with a hop kicker. Very solid, the hops bounce to the front then are gone.

750mL (best by 9/2013) into a Hennepin glass. Pours a hazy glowing orange w/ a big fluffy head, nice web of lace.

Aroma is a combination of funky Belgian yeast and citrusy hops.

Taste if bright and lively. Pineapple, orange, farmhouse yeast, pale malt. Juicy and tropical with a nice bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is refreshing and light, dry.

Overall another tasty saison from Logsdon.

Tasted 12 June 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours clear from the top of the bottle, medium golden yellow, with fluffy, pillowy dense white head. Great retention and lacing. Bottom of the bottle gets cloudy as the yeast gets stirred up.

Smell is flowery, but flowery sweet. Big, very aromatic, tropical sweet flowers. Light and fruity. Grains in the background for support.

Taste is spicy, lightly sweet, with a little bit of hop bitterness in the back-end. Spiciness is really nice, tingly peppery spice that saison yeast often brings.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, with medium-high carbonation. Fluffy but dense at the same time.

Quite a tasty saison. Clean, spicy, floral, and straightfoward, yet very enjoyable.

Gusher, huge gusher. The crown was on so tightly that it took a few tries to get it off, the whole time foam shot all over the counter. Fuck this is a mess. It's a nice opaque rusty orange with a solid quilt of fluffy cream and leaves gobby lace. Nose is slightly pithy with orange and must, there's also a spicy character I get in many fresh hop beers. The yeast dominates the nose here overall, however. Flavor is bitter, real bitter for the style. There is some sweetness, some lemon and a little metal. Full bodied with hi carb and a dry finish. Not my favorite from the brewery, but worth the taste.

On tap at O'Brien's Wet Hop fest. 10oz glass.

A: Slightly hazy yellow orange with an inch of rocky, craggy white froth. Retention is great and thick sheets of lacing are left behind.

S: Strong peppery and band-aid phenolics with much lemon and grassiness. Earth blends with a dash of leather. There's a touch of orange in there.

T: Earthy with some leather and coriander. Pervasive lemongrass presence with a firm pepper-like spiciness. Notes of grain blend with a lemony, grassy, earthy finish.

M: Lower medium in body with matching carbonation. Dry and sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: Solid. A bit heavy on the mouthfeel and a little low on the carbonation. I haven't had the regular Seizoen so I have no proper frame of reference, but inferior to the Bretta. You're better off just grabbing a few growlers of Pech 'n Brett and calling it an evening.
