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 very cloudy golden-orange with a finger of thick frothy white head. The head fades down at a very slow pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet bready and grainy malts, grapefruit, pine, and floral hops, Belgian farmhouse yeast, coriander, other spices, lemon zest, and some funk.

T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness, sweet grainy malts, lemon zest, and coriander. Through the middle, some tart fruits come through with some floral and pine hops, some more bitterness, Belgian yeast flavors, some funk, and some more spices. The finish is a mix of tart and funky farmhouse yeast flavors, grapefruit, grassy, and lightly spicy hops flavors, sweet bready malts, lemon zest, and some spices.

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

D - Very drinkable. Very complex but very well balanced. The fresh hops really compliment the beer nicely.

750ml bottle (FHS612, Best by: 09/2013).
Purchased the bottle at the source -on a 9/29/2012 visit to Logsdon- prior to Hood River Hops Festival.

Allowed to warm 10 minutes out of the fridge, poured to a teardrop goblet.

A: Shining honey-golden hued glassful, topped with a pillowy finger+ of creamy froth. Sheets of breaking lace stick in patches as they fall. Steady carbonation cuts through a fine haziness. Toyed with giving a '5', but I'm very stingy with 'em...

S: Enticing aroma of orange and lemon zest, cut grass, clusters of flowers and a fleeting 'Belgian' spiciness. Fresh hops add a lightly piney fragrance and augment the cirtrusy/grassy notes. Strong at the start, better (and better) with some warming.

T: As "fresh" and as "green' as it should be - subtle Belgian spicing with a leafiness/ grassiness and a good deal of citrus rind zestiness. Backing is vaguely peppery, more traditional. Apple and a familiar pear add floralness and fruitiness. Classic saison goodness here, folks.

M: Effervescent feel at first, then a mellower and modestly starchy evolution. Body is medium, 7.5% ABV seems completely hidden. Drier finish.

O: Terrific beer - as sorta expected, it's the very good 'regular' Seizoen kicked up a notch by the fresh hop addition. Love the greenness and spicing the hops provide - this is one I'm really glad to try as soon as we did to the bottling date; though the bottle says 'Best By 09/2013', I'd never dream of keeping any for a year. Bought two more - they won't last long.

Another great beer from Logsdon. Pours a yellow-orange color, honey-ish. Big puffy white head. The beer really foamed up on me. Nice lacing. I'd give a higher score, but saisons are generally pretty nice looking. The aroma is a nice variation on the Seizoen. Very nice amount of hops. They blend in and complement the yeast notes without over the beer. The beer has the same excellent mix of funk and Belgian earthiness as present in other Logsdon beers. The hops add a grassy, citric note. It's green and fresh without getting too vegetal. Some peppercorn-ish spiciness. There's a light medicinal note that's a bit stronger in the taste. Otherwise, the beer starts lightly sweet but dries out quickly and develops a enjoyably tart hoppiness. The finish is quite dry with a mildly bitter hop bite. Mouthfeel is mildly effervescent. This is a very pleasant saison with lots of wonderful flavor. Logsdon is one of my favorite new breweries, and this beer does not disappoint.

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.
