Moderate. Refreshingly tart... but I'm not up there with this ale's enthusiasts.

Peche 'n Brett Looks better than your average Brett... but not so good as the better saisons. Smells are intriguing; lots of peaches followed by a heavy hint of Brett. Tastes follow; this is a well-integrated ale. It finishes tart, dry and bubbly enough to cleanse the sweet from the palate by my pairing with a peach pie in season. While the pie was the higher point of the meal, Peche 'n Brett made it better. And for that, it passes my test as a very good saison.

As a minor point, my rendition bottled March 2020, is only 8.6% ABV... and that is fine with me. Too much alcohol interferes with food.

I've now had Logsdon's four most often rated ales. Because of Logsdon's extra effort and dedication, I can see why a segment of the craft market holds them in such high esteem. But Brett remains too much for my buds to like. And there also is the issue of premium price. So, it probably is time for me to focus elsewhere and, being a buddy-duddy, on the classic saisons. Tried as I have, I guess I'm still just a Euro Saison Head.

*Poured into a Teku glass from a 375mL bottle*

This beer poured out a pastel orange color onto my glass, also hazy in appearance from the yeast. It had about a finger thick white colored head on my initial pour, but it disappeared almost immediately leaving a bit of a lacing around my glass.

The aroma on this was both funky and peachy upfront, being true to its name "Peche n' Brett". While I mostly got stone fruit aromas ranging from notes of peaches to apricots, I was also able to perceive notes of caramel and vanilla in the back-end with the funk and oakiness still present.

Upfront on the taste, I was able to get a nice presence of sweet peaches with a slight nectarine sourness as well. The sour nectarine notes lingered to the middle and finish and was accompanied by notes of under-ripe mandarin oranges. Overall, I would say that the sour nectarine-like taste was the most prominent flavor that I got.

This was medium bodied and had a moderate amount of carbonation to it. As for its drink-ability, I thought that this was super easy to drink despite having a 10% ABV. Almost no alcohol was perceived.

I thought that this beer, overall, was pretty decent but not my personal favorite. It was very good and highly drinkable, but it seemed a little boring for me to drink. I wish it was a bit more fruity than sour, but it isn't bad at all how it was when I drank it.

Copper colored with a fingernail of off white around the rim and covering half of the top. The aroma is of peach and a touch of brettanomyces. I’m tasting peach and just a touch of brettanomyces. The mouth is moderately carbonated, dry, and crisp.

Pretty damn good beer. A masterful blend of tart and sweet in which you can actually taste peach instead of an indiscernible fruit flavor like a lot of other beers. Its light, crisp, a little dry, decently carbonated and has just the right amount of funk. Not the cheapest bottle but if you come across it, worth an indulgence.

This is magnificent. As it warms, fresh peach aromas leap out of the glass. The Brett aroma is apparent but secondary. On the palate it is more balanced. Still wonderful, but a tad more peach would have been welcome.

This is the Ghost Rider (a rollercoaster here at Knott’s Berry Farm) of beers for Raul. Bought a $20 bottle of 2018 vintage last month, but it gushed like hell so I drain poured it because of “infection.” Well, today I saw this 2020 edition for $12.99 and I decided “What the hell?” because it seemed like a goddamn sign and a good deal! (not that Raul is into that celestial stuff or whatever). Anyway, this one gushed too (but not as bad as the 2018. Oh well, I guess I’ll still drink it).

Damn thing pours a bright orange like Lawrence of Arabia riding by camel into the sun’s anvil. Then when I take a sniff, dang sucker is hella pungent on the peaches like a Kim K emoji. Taste is pretty damn good too. Smooth peach essence like that baseball team in that girl movie (Gina Davis did look pretty good).

Anyway, I’m into it and stuff like that hot goth girl in high school that always hung by her locker during nutrition. But then again, it’s exactly that: an enigma. Why the hell is this beer rated so high, yet Logsdon can’t give me a non gusher?

Raul is done with them.

500mL/16.9oz bottle purchased at Nectar in Kendall Yards, Spokane, Washington, for $17.90. "Batch no: 2019. Bottle date: 03/2019 WA." Now 8.5% abv, btw.

Abbreviated review.

Last time I had a beer from Logsdon, they were being brewed by a different brewer for a different owner in a different state. What's different? Not much. Still a great beer. Want some fruit and funk? Look no further.

16.9 oz bottle from 03/2019.

L: Light straw, big head with lots of carbonation.
S: Peach. Brett funk. Not as much aroma as previous batches I've had.
T: Peach, brett, oak.
F: Medium body with high carbonation.

I've had much better batches of Peche 'n Brett and I've had worse batches. This bottle was right in the middle. Everything about it was quite good yet it's not close to its peak. This aroma was more held back than the strong peach and funk smell I've had in the past. Flavor is excellent but less peach than previous batches.

2016 vintage - drank on 4/26/2019. A ton of peach and fairly funky - lots of brett character. Very good, though the body and mouth feel leaves something to be desired.

Excellent Sour from Oregon. Tons of peaches add nuance, some funk, but not overbearing sourness. Considering how high of an ABV this beer is, the booze is masked to perfection with a smooth finish asking for another sip. I have had it at a Chicago bar (Links Taproom) and also picked up a bottle at the Beer Temple.

4.18/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle Date: best by August 2022
Palate Contaminants: none

Color is light gold. Opaque glow. Fair amount of fine head.

The smell has both citrus acidity and some lactic element. The peach blends well with that acidity. It doesn't hang around as long as I'd like.

Very light funkiness in the taste. Sometimes I get a candy taste, and for this one it's Smarties. Moderate bitterness. The peach is diminished from what was on the nose. Slight honey and plums as it warms. I hope I didn't wait too long to consume this one. (On second thought, the bottle does say that the ideal serving temp is 50-65, and I am noticing more intensity as it warms.)

Carbonation is plenty prickly. Alcohol is very well hidden for a tenner. There's more sweetness in the aftertaste than in the taste. Moderate astringency.

L : Generic golden amber color.
S: Strongest smell of a beer. Leaks out immediately after I open it. The peaches roam far.
T: The union of peach and brett. The peach doesn't overpower the brett but still retains itself in the mix of brett and oak.
F: Light fizz with peaches.
O: Unique brett fusion with peaches. Good stuff.

Golden and hazy with loads of fast rising carbonation, and a half finger of white head.

Smells very Brett forward. Funky, sour lambic qualities, earthy, dusty brewery filled with cobwebs that remind me of Cantillon. Oak barrel as well. There is a light fruitiness, perhaps peach but not yet distinguishable. Macaroni and a lactic milk like quality.

Tastes of sour and slightly sweet, not bone dry. All the Brett, earthy, dusty lambic and oak come through, and it ends with fermenting fruit.

Medium to strong, acidic body, with loads of carbonation.

Got his first bottle in Sacramento, and I have a second one from Oregon waiting for me. Drinking for the first time Dec 20th, 2018. Complex and unique, funky brew.

One of the 14 beers we have had in one session of some bad-ass tasting brew.
Very nice one. The peaches bring a nice fruity freshness. The brett are a bit acetic but not overly. The whole thing is balanced, tasty and damn drinkable

First time I had this it changed my perspective of fruited American sours. Explosive peach juice and perfect lactic balance. THe 2017 has been overtaken by brett.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

L -- Pours an ever-so-slightly hazy straw body with practically no head produced with even a well aerated pour. Looks like cider
S -- Peach, jasmine, green apple jolly rancher, watermelon, bretty sourness, dryer sheets. Aromas don't pop out of the glass but are very nuanced and pleasant
T -- The peach really shines here and offsets the moderate (definitely not overbearing) tartness that is present. Also getting raspberry, oaky tannins, musky perfume, floral, quince, sour apple
F -- Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb. Nice and lively, an excellent warm weather beer. No bitterness and the 10% ABV is absolutely undetectable. Someone could tell me this is 5% -- hell, even 3.5% -- and I'd believe them.
O -- One of the best wild saisons I've had to date. The peach addition really brings everything together nicely. Wish it weren't $20/750ml, but it's worth it for special occasions.

Very hard to believe this one is 10%. Super drinkable for that ABV. Nose is a rush of lactic sourness and peachy stonefruit. Definitely a tart one but not overly so. I'd grab more of these if it weren't super expensive.

Fresh batch (couldn't read date, but was just distro'ed)

Pours a pale straw with haze
Strong brett on the nose, with faint stonefruit, but peach is lost in the background
Brett is dominant, not much else makes it through except alcohol heat on the finish
Light spritz with good carb, body hides its ABV well

Overall a nice beer, but not worth the $27 a bottle.

Cellar bottle and have had fresh. Had been trying to find a bottle for many years, and the hunt was worth it! First a warning, this beer is dangerous, it tastes so light and peachy, along with signature saison yeast character, that the 10 percent abv is undetectable! So smooth yet has a strong saison presence in the mouthfeel. Bit of an aftertaste of multivitamin with the peach but not in a bad way. Very balanced, would be the perfect beer for a sunny picnic in July.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Hazy gold-amber with a large, airy white foam leaving a layer of chunky lace and settling quickly to a bubbly matt and round collar.

Smell certainly showcases brett, which is slightly funky of nutty cheese, but in a nice, measured and balanced way, allowing room for spicy oak and nice, fresh peach and green apple brightness.

Taste is very peachy--as though it is candied, or like a bright and juicy, freshly made pie filling before being cooked--with pear, spice from the oak and slightly funk cheese.

Lightly sour and balanced, this has a nice froth, medium body, and a semi-dry, crisp finish.
