Cloudy yellow, obvious wheat, white puffy head.

Smells grainy and spicy, rustic.

Surprised I can place the pear juice. Bready, hardly floral, sorta sweet, definitely earthy and spicy, possibly coriander and pepper. Tartness isn't a bother. Delightful summer beer.

Crisp and dry.

Pours a hazy straw golden with a great layer of foam.
Light aroma of floraly esters with an underlying funky hay note.
Lemony peppery and coriander notes emerge as it warms.
The flavor is peppery and spicy with a rustic feel.
The hint of wet hay gives off some funk.
Delightful.

Another split with rudzud.

Big foamy fizzy head 1 finger fades semi slowly with nice lacing, mostly clear golden pils color.

Nose funky saison, grainy, little doughy, big pear like fruit, mild saison spices, hint of funky, mild lemony funk like bit no Brett, hint of peppercorn, little green.

Taste is dry and grainy, little gritty, mild saison like funk and spices, hint of peppercorn, little pear juice but light. Mild bitterness with hint of earthy spicy hop note, hint of phenols too. Finish is dry and fairly bitter with more spicy hops, little saison spices, little fruit too, hint of saison funk.

Mouth is med bod, lots of fluffy carb.

Overall decent, nice saison with good pear notes, nice saison spices and funk, nice dry feel, but not quite as good as many of the others out there.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a quarter inch head that fades to leave nice lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of pear juice, light peppercorns, light must, very delicate.

T - Taste is very delicate, light pear and sweeter malts, strong phenolic towards that
middle, the pear is nice and lightly juicy.

M - Mouthfeel is strongly carbonated, refreshing.

O - Overall this beer was nice, very drinkable, would like some more pear though. Alcohol is hidden nicely.

Misanthrope sent me this one a couple months back, thanks a million Scott! Logsdon's Seizoen fills the tulip with an orange the color of a sunrise. There's a touch of murkiness but the body glows when backlit and is consistent throughout. The head is pure white and easily grows to three fingers on the pour before settling into a dense, meringue like foam. Sticky patchwork lacing coats the glass.

A wonderful dew heavy fruitiness explodes from the glass. Gritty pear, underipe peach, and tart green apple all ooze from the glass in that order of intensity. There's an all encompassing mustiness that's reminiscent of wildflowers. He malt base is light and softly sweet bringing out some graham cracker sweetness.

Each aspect of the nose is well represented in the flavor. Those orchard fruits all wash over the palate with green apple leading the way, that fades mid palate while the gritty pear and sweet peach continues. The pear lingers on the swallow from what I'm assuming is the added juice. All of this sits atop the graham cracker base. The mushiness is more subdued than the nose led on. If I have a minor gripe it's that there is a little more residual sweetness than I'd like.

The mouthfeel on this Seizoen is better dialed in than on Seizoen Bretta. The bubbles are aggressive creating a lively, frothy mouthfeel that pushes through quickly and awakens the tastebuds. There's a fruity sweetness that lingers but is nowhere near cloying against the light body.

This is another winner from Logsdon. They do a great job with Saison. This version may be a touch sweeter than I'd like but it takes nothing away from the overall enjoyment or drinkability. The fruitiness pops and lingers. I'm a fan. Thanks again, Scott!
