This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a soft hazy burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within a nice minute. Lacing seemed appropriate. The smell had a sweet grassy/herbal aroma up front. Floral and citrus graces underneath with subtle spices to slide in for the balance. The taste was moderately sweet with the spice to make a nice effort to remain in the balance. Malts make a slight presence. Dry herbal to floral aftertaste runs into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seems to run nice on the body leading with an almost herbal creamy feel all around. Overall, this was a pretty nice dry saison, pretty sure I could come back to.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Golden color with 3 fingers of fluffy white head.

Aroma is funky. A hefty amount of barnyard. Some wet hay and Belgian spice

Taste blossoms with spicy Belgian yeast. Classic clove, pepper, and even some banana. The finish has a distracting mineral character-- very iron forward. Moderate-high carbonation.

Overall, good saison, but the finish is distracting. Pairs well with spicy food. It gets a 82.5/100.

Bottle. Clear orange pour with a thin white head and visible carbonation. Notes of farmhouse yeast, honey, minerals, bananas, peaches, apricots. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, fizzy from the carbonation and with a bitter-sweet finish.

Bottle I have been holding onto for a little while. Enjoy the golden peach appearance with a relatively large white head. Peppery notes, citrus zest, and earthy notes. Light stone fruit character. Quite refreshing. Somewhat strange malt character. Wondering if that is intended or developed in the bottle over time.

Love this beer. Pours a slightly cloudy yello from a bottle into a snifter. Beautiful thick foamy head and great lacing. Very fragrant fruit smell of apples and pears. The taste is lemony with pears and pepper, and a bit of lime. Great feel on the tongue. Just a great overall beer!

Peachy gold, yellow haze, towering and dense foam crown.
Sweet zesty aroma. Citric, Lemmon tart and earthy effect. Big nose.
A combo of tangy, zesty and earthy yeast forward flavor. Honey sweet malt, more fruity layers pop out later. The flavor is ever changing, big complexity.
Many American versions of this style pale in comparison with the traditional Belgian offerings. This Farmhouse ale stands up pretty well to some of the best versions I've had. The yeast is extremely complex and interesting.
Stays lively and crisp even on a 93 degree day, like today.
Along with being very lively, the finish is very full and lush.
Sour and tang flavor strengthens as it warms to room temp.
All spice blend pops out in the aroma, big herbal and a bit more sour-funk.
Hats off, to Logsdon for creating a unique and complex Saison.
