On tap for the 2012 Peter Reeves Memorial Sourfest at Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, yeast, and Brett. Taste is much the same with a slight tart and funky finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

a special treat from my rare beer club, decanted after sessioning my homebrew saison to compare how the brett affects this style of brew. the pour on this is pale straw color and hazy with an inch of white head that leaves nice lacing. the nose has a lot of funk to it, some lemon zest and wild yeast. the taste is light, just simple white wheat malt and the crazy yeast and brett, its different than most, lighter, less fruity really, and very summery, pollen heavy, honey sweetness is slight towards the finish. I wouldn't get pear juice if it didn't say so. its super dry, which is nice, but I wish there was more carbonation in this, it just doesn't have the brightness I like in the genre. plenty drinkable though, and a well hidden alcoholic strength. a solid beer overall, and I was impressed with its simplicity yet dynamic flavor profile. a little more carbonation would make this world class, and it has me inspired to do a little experimenting with brett in my own beers...

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a short white head consisting of large bubbles and never died down.
S: Light aromas of sourness are present in the nose; some hints of pears become perceptible as the beer warms up.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is somewhat sour up front with bits of roughness with some grainy malts and wheat but then turns a bit sweet with hints of pears towards the finish. The pears become a little srronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little dry and chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and quite interesting because it manages to provide two distinct flavors on the front and back ends of the taste.

Maybe they aren't exactly brewing beside the chickens or fermenting underneath the goats, but Logsdon Farmhouse Ales is "putting the farm back in farmhouse" with an authentic tasting saison that's just... well, peachy!

Seizoen Bretta taunts the nose with musty fruit, salty character and quasi-barnyard tone. Though tarter scents speak to dried lemon and other citrus, other and more earthen character of old wood, wine cork and the musken scent of sea air.

Yet on the palate, the distinctive ale is tart, dry and playfully acidic; showing off its wine-like tone. Though the mustiness of old and dried citrus play out on the middle, those rustic leather and horse hair character is absent. With the peach fruitiness and subtle sweetness, its briny taste evokes notions of saltwater taffy.

Closing with a powdery dryness and wafts of sawdust, the ale's acidity provides a tangy and peppery finish with echoes of saddle leather and horse hair to revisit the palate in a retro-nasal aftertaste. Its subtle alcohol warmth hides effortlessly behind a feathery tannin spice and yeasty pepper character.

With the heart of the Belgian and French farmlands in mind, its assuring to know that beer lovers of the Pacific Northwest have more to whet their whistle than only hoppy ale.

Bottle No. SB 15438
Best by: 6/2017

Appearance: I have never seen a gusher like this one before and half the bottle was wasted before I got it under control; what was left poured out a cloudy peach nectar color with a vague head and some spotty lacing

Smell: Peaches, pears and saddle tones, with lemongrass and a touch of funk underneath

Taste: Peach and pear flavors are joined, mid-palate, by the horse blanket and lemongrass; after the swallow, there is a phenolic tone that brings a somewhat herbaceous edge

Mouthfeel: Initially very carbonated but settled down almost flat, the body was medium to full

Overall: My scores reflect my disappointment with losing half the beer and if it didn't gush I would likely have rated it .5 higher; my expectations were very high, having just enjoyed the Seizoen the previous night - even so, I would still have likely rated the Seizoen higher

8.00% ABV confirmed. 1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle with waxed over (beeswax according to the label) pressure cap and appealing artful label served into a conical Samuel Smith's pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are quite high; I've heard great things about Logsdon and saison is one of me favourite styles. "Specialty organic farmhouse ale" brewed with brettanomyces. Unfiltered. "Best by 11/2017. Bottle number SB 24106. Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth." "Enjoy served at 48-54F." This is my first Logsdon beer.

Served straight from the fridge - right in that 45-54 degree Fahrenheit range. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Even with a standard, non-vigorous pour, the beer yielded a 7-8 finger head. Pure white colour, soft-lookng, with god cream and even better thickness. Retention is damned impressive (~9+ minutes) for the high ABV. Body colour is a clearly unfiltered hazy vibrant yellow-gold. No yeast particles are visible - at least this high up in the glass. No bubble show. Light sticky lacing as the head recedes. Looking good for the style; everything's copacetic.

Sm: Soft pear. Fleeting light brettanomyces yeast character. A bit of biscuity spice. Light lemongrass. Lemon custard. Farmhouse/funky. Crisp apple. Clove. Hay. Light fresh wheat. White grapeskin. A hint of white pepper - but not as much as I want in a good saison. No milky character either. It's a soft, fleetingly light aroma that signals refreshment to come. I hope it delivers.

T: Delightful pear notes, with white grape skin and crisp apple skin. Lemongrass forms the body. It's not as funky as I expected; bretts are there but are mainly biscuity. The sweet pear nicely balances any funkiness that might otherwise have been present. Just a hint of tartness. Any hop character is primarily floral, but that isn't the highlight here. Clove spice. Light crystal malt, lending it a somewhat tingly feel. Really refreshing and well balanced, with no alcohol coming through at all. Lemon zest. A bit of pineapple ester flavour, which I'm not huge on. Buried white pepper - so buried it's almost imperceptible. This is a really tasty saison, but it lacks the complexity and subtlety of superior Belgian offerings (namely Fantome and Dupont). The pear in particular is a highlight here and is masterfully executed. It's quite juicy. I'm really liking it. Well put together.

Mf: More smooth and wet than most saisons, but also perhaps more refreshing. Perfect carbonation. Feels tailored specifically to its flavour profile. Juicy. Great body and presence on the palate.

Dr: Incredibly drinkable for the high ABV. I really like this beer. Lives up to Logdson's reputation. I'd get it again. It would probably age well, too. Would pair well with many foods. I look forward to trying more beer from Logsdon. It's one hell of a siason - especially for an American example of the style. Tasty stuff. I'd recommend it to friends. A solid example of a style that's difficult to pull off.

Thanks Mark (by way of WST) for sharing! Quick review transcribed from written notes.

Nice classic bottle graphics that seem well-suited to a silkscreen application. It has a Swiss Appenzell vibe going on, very nice.

Murky orange amber coloration, dense and lasting layer of white foam on the surface.

Signature aromatic notes of Bretty funk, horsehair and phenolic pepper, slightly medicinal (in a good way) but restrained.

Dry and Brett forward taste, yeasty and dry with some light grassiness and notes of citrus rind. Long lingering dry aftertaste.

Really nice and classic Brett Saison, reminiscent of Boulevard Saison-Brett...

Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy dark beige color ale with a huge dirty head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with light funky yeasty notes is quite sublime. Taste is dominated by dry rustic notes with some funky yeast notes and a dry floral finish. Dry Brett notes are clearly identifiable but are not overwhelming and keep the malt base flavours intact. Body is full with super great carbonation (a bit of a gusher as well BTW) and no apparent alcohol. I could drink this beer this every day of the year!!!

Bottle courtesy of boralyl. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Bit of a gusher, though not too bad. Nose brings plenty of Brett. Nice earthiness with a touch of cherry and barnyard. Flavor is dry. Love the Brett. Really a nice beer that I'll be seeking out more of.

Hazy orange color. White head.

Funky. Light sour. Light tart. Very saison like. Belgian yeast all over.

Medium bodied. Nice carbobation.

Great saison. Easy drinking. Brett didn't overpower this beer.

Review 1500! 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/2017. Instant violent gusher upon opening. Pours extremely hazy golden orange color with a 3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon zest, orange zest, pear, pineapple, peach, apple, pepper, clove, wheat, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance, strength, and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and brett notes, with moderate malt balance. Taste of big lemon zest, orange zest, pineapple, peach, pear, apple, clove, pepper, floral, grass, wheat, and spicy yeast earthiness. Light earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, pineapple, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and Brett ester flavors; with light-moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible saison style. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity and spicy ester flavors with moderate malt balance; and extremely smooth to drink. An extremely enjoyable offering.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing this interesting beer as well.

Erupts as its opened, big fluffy white pillowy head fades slowly with pot marked spots and lots of sticky lacing, hazy nectar peach orange color. Would have been 4.5 if it didn't erupt.

Nose has tons of Brett funk, pure Brett, light amber golden malts, horse blanket funk, light bready malts, little lemon, hint floral spices. A nice fruit juice like quality, hard to tell if it's pear.

Taste more Brett, a nice fruit juice that brings some pear, light apricot like too, and almost peach but not quite. Some barnyard funk, light bready malts, light golden malt, hint pineapple, light floral spices, hint citrus, tropical. Touch of warming booze. Finish is dry, bready malts, light acidity, more lingering funk and pineapple and pear juice.

Mouth is med bodied lots of carb, light warming booze, sticky mouth lingering.

Overall pretty much what I expected, tasty, nice Brett funk, nice tropical fruit juice and pear flavor, light saison, except for the eruption quite nice.

Logsdon Farmhouse Ales "Seizon Bretta"
375 ml. brown glass bottle, "Best by: 09/2020"
$6.49 @ 802 BWS, Burlington, VT

Appearance: Initial pour was an almost crystal clear gold, but with the yeast added it became a cloudy orange. Full, frothy bright white head, Excellent head retention. Very good lacing.

Aroma: Initially bright funky Brettanomyces character: tart/sour/acidic (if that can be a smell ;), tart fruit with some cherry, Sweetarts candy, wet straw, wet leather, horse blanket. A little sweet sugar. The yeast pour softened it and brought out much more apricot, and softened some of the funky notes into more of just a mustiness.

Flavor: Very much like the aroma, including the softening due to the yeast. Personally I prefer it sharper, although it's hard to argue with it once the yeast's been added either! I'm really quite amazed at the difference however, I haven't really seen that before. It's not particularly bitter, but that's not needed to balance it with the acidity of the Brett and a little bit of spiciness (coriander, cardamom) that you mainly get in the finish. Apricot, apple, lemon, and (I might be imagining it because I read it was used for conditioning) pear appear over a sweetish malt base. Well balanced. Funky, fruity, sweetish, spritzy, spicy - awesome!

Mouthfeel: Medium-light in body with an effervescent, natural carbonation that's just slightly above a standard level.

Overall: One of the best examples I've found for looking at Brett character, yet it's a kind of a "clean" brett character if you can say that. The funk is reigned in and doesn't go off into the more quirky areas: metallic, smokey, Band-aid, mouse urine, rancid, excrement, dirty socks, toe jam, etc. Beyond that off-putting thought... back to the brilliantly funky, fruity, and spicy beer at hand... excellent! Worth seeking out.

A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some apricot + peach highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy off-white head of larger bubbles that reduces to a medium sized slightly thicker patch of large bubbles, a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate amounts of brett funkiness and tartness over some lighter notes of light fruit (pear and apple). There is a light amount of lemon citrus along with some herbs - lemongrass and a light hint of clove. Light to moderate notes of hay.

T: Similar to the smell, there are notes of light fruits upfront including white grape, apple, and pear over the top of lighter lemon citrus and hay. There is a moderate amount of funkiness and tartness with hints of spices - lemongrass, white pepper, and just a touch of clove. There is a light amount of bitterness that fades almost instantly.

M: Medium bodied with moderat amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness. Moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This beer is very easy to drink for as big as it is - the alcohol is very well hidden and it is not overly sour or tart. I found it enjoyable but if you are not a fan of brett, this one might not be for you.

Gusher alert! Held over the sink, and had glasses ready for this one. Nice pale golden-yellow pour, hazy, with a full taster glass of foam that eventually died down to a thin layer with splotchy lacing. Crisp aroma, brett, fruit salad, wet grass, indistinct spice, floral hops. Taste was crisp and clean as well, light barnyard funk, citrus bringing in a very mellow sourness, essence of pear and peach, white wine, grassy, floral, light spices with a drop of honey sweetness. Not sure how old this bottle was, but regardless, it seemed at its peak. Mouthfeel was tremendous, smooth and light, once again I'll say it: crisp and clean, soft carbonation, easy drinkability with none of the 8%ABV detectable. Really liked this one a lot.

Had on tap at the Pine Box. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a small white head on top, tight foamy that lasts for a good while. Nice lacing down the glass.

S: Has a nice bretty aroma, a little bit of hay, yeasty spice, with some nice fruity aromas as well. Some citrus, lemon, apple, and a little peach/apricot.

T: Very nice! Lots of citrus, lemon, a bit of apple and apricot. It has a nice bretty flavor, a bit of hay, and faint tartness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Extremely easy to drink, goes down smooth.

O: A great beer from Logsdon. I think I like this version more than the oaked version, a little less chalky, with a stronger fruit flavor.

Honestly, the beeswax seal is a bit of a pain in the ass--it took me a while to open the bottle cap and as I did bubbles started to ooze out of the top. The resulting head was a manageable three fingers thick. Decent streaky and chunky lace. When pouring the golden liquid, you can see the yeast flowing down the center bringing a white hue to the glass. Despite the light color, the haze prevents you from seeing through any part of glass.

First impression is of the strong raw yeast smell. It's a bit like smelling a freshly opened pack of brewer's yeast. Behind this I get a lot of hard cider with both a sweet and sour element. I also note some spices like rosemary and thyme.

This not a mellow beer. I detect almost no malt base. Instead, I get some freshly ground black pepper and dried orange rind. There' sandy element of Belgium in this with that classic bite on the back of the tongue. Sour finish, but bitter aftertaste. The complexity makes this an intriguing beer. The body is above average while the carbonation leans the other way. It still seems balanced in the mouth because of the spiciness.

I purchased this at whole foods in Fremont, enjoyed chilled in a tulip.

The color is golden with light haze and thick three finger white head with visible carbonation and lots of lace. The smell is great -tons of tropical fruit light pineapple and subtle funk with mild herbal acommpaniement with slight grainy floral and citrus juicy aroma. The feel is excellent with lots of bretty texture and medium carbonation with slight herbal and spiced quality mild alcohol and nice dry finish.

The flavor is very good with great brett which is tropical and fruity bringing a juicy and earthy flavor with light spice and citrus tanginess almost grapefruity with mild zest and light hint of pepper in the very dry finish with a mild hop and alcohol taste. Overall I really enjoyed this, I was wishing I could have gotten more, the brett character is excellent and this is perhaps one of the best bretted saisons I have had recently. I recommend this highly.

The pour is an orange color with a tall white head. Nice bretty nose on this with good funky, earthy aromas and a fair amount of fruit. Citrus is certainly prominent, as is a touch of tropical fruit. A mild, but pleasant spice note and some sweet bread. The flavor is fairly dry but a touch of sweetness/malt remains. More citrus fruit character on the nose along with a touch of grass, earth, and pepper. Really interesting and enjoyable.

Gushed a lot when opening. Hazy yellow pour with big head. Nice and funky aroma with a lot of citrus fruits. Expected this to be quite sour but wasn’t. A lot of yeast presence, dry and drinkable. Overall a very nice, funky Saison.

From 04/27/13 notes. Big thanks to nugganooch for sending this out to me; thanks Dane! 750ml bottle.

a - Pours a hazy orange-golden color with two fingers plus of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Loads of lacing and retention.

s - Smells of brett, lightly soured pears and fruity malts, hay, spice, pepper, yeast, apples, citrus, and floral hops. Loads of brett; really awesome nose.

t - Tastes of a ton of brett again, citrus, apples, pears, tropical fruits, grapes, fruity malts, sourness, hay, earthy notes, herbal and floral notes. Not as sour as the nose but really nice. Really like it.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink, no alcohol present at all. Creamy and smooth; awesome body.

o - Overall I thought this was a fantastic saison. I love brett and this one has tons of it. I also like my saison's a little more fruity vs. spicy, and that is how I found this one. Easy to drink; really makes me want to try their Peche n Brett now.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

I'll say it: boo this spelling... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises orange juice, potting soil, buttery toffee, and a small smattering of dark greens. So much earth... The taste tones down the earth a ways, but still continues the general trend of dominance on the part of the Brett. Here, there's more of the fruity aspect of the yeast, though the earth and cobweb remain. It's all a bit much in this department, if you ask me, but it's luckily not enough to completely sink the ship of state. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, if you're a Brett fan, you'll find endless entertainment here; otherwise, your tongue might receive something of an overdose...

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.

The beer is orange and hazy with a quarter inch of white head. The aroma brings lemon rind, orange peel, grass, floral hops, citrus. Smells nice. The flavor imparts orange citrus, floral hops, a touch of wild yeast. Medium bodied with a slightly bitter finish. Lingering floral hops.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle SB9985, best by 2/2017. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Giant head and excellent retention. Hazy orange body. Nice lacing as it settles down.

Smell - Bretty and a little fruity. Grainy malts back there, but mostly brett.

Taste - Very bretty again. Strong wine fruitiness. Very light grains and no bitterness in the finish at all.

Mouthfeel - Very dry and well carbonated. Nice and light.

Overall - Good. Well bretted, but uncomplex. Comes out tasting like almost nothing but brett, as many of these do, but it's nice all the same.

750ml bottle shared with friends and poured into pint glasses. The brew appears a clouded amber with 4 fingers off-white head thats fluffy and cratored across the top. It holds with pretty solid retaining powers and rising bubbles in support.

The smell is lemony and carbonic with some mineral elements mixed with rinds ans pulp. More smells reveal herbal and earthen elements that are mildly reminescent of farmhouse character.

The taste is herbal and earthy with a pleasant rind element of fruit. There is some carbonic and mineral quality to this that keeps it from being "clean." There is a bit of fresh wheat tang/grainy character and bitterness akin to lemon rinds/pulp.

This is a medium to light bodied brew that is excessively carbonated not only visually and in the feel but it also carries over into the flavor. Overall its a solid brew that I would drink again but it needs to be cleaned up a bit to fall in line with the heightened level of talk/respect that was surrounding this.
