Reviewed from notes. 2012 vintage. Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- Pours cloudy orange color with a 1 finger white head. Minimal lacing.

S- Honey, sweet peaches, tartness.

T- Light honey, sour peaches, some earthiness, and musty

M- Medium body and carbonation. Very light for a 10% beer, that drinks like a 6% beer.

O- Nice saison with some tart and sweet peaches.

Very cloudy peach colored body. cap and collar throughout. Great lacing and head retention.

Faint fruity tartness.

Extreme funk, "musty basement". Peach is noticable but not close to overwhemling. Almost reminds me of lemonade somehow. Wouldn't guess as high of an ABV than it actually is.

Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Had side by side with Fantasia and I give a slight edge to Fantasia. I'd say worth seeking out if you don't have to pay an arm and a leg. Base beer is great as well. Thanks egrace84.

On draft. Hazy golden orange body, very thin head. Aroma is rich stone fruit, with light lemon and funky undertones. Tart and bright, medium light body. Sweet and smooth finish, quite enjoyable.

750ml waxed bottle from late 2011 / early 2012 batch.

Appearance: Classic tawny orange hazy body with a 2 finger off white billowy crown that shows great retention and lace.

Smell: A lovely medley of peach, saison yeast, a bit of brett funk, a hint of aspirin, and a sour tinge.

Taste: Faint peach, light brett funk, a muted acidity, a bit of aspirin, a bit of flinstones chewables, the faintest whisper of band aid, alcohol peaking through momentarily to say hello, with a slightly metallic finish.

Mouthfeel: Thick side of thin bodied with moderate carbonation but a nice creamy crown that really helps.

Overall: Other than the flavor profile, this is a really solid saison. I can only hope that a fresher batch would be tastier and hope to track one down at some point.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into an Allagash cervoise glass. Bottle 10302. Best by 2020.

A: Bright yellow orange. Very orange. It almost seems to emit light.

S: Peaches! Peach nectar actually; just like the syrup you get in canned peaches.

T/M/O: That is a lot of Brett. And a lot of peach. I guess it's an accurate name! The two dominant flavors battle throughout the maintaste, neither particularly winning, though perhaps the Brett in the long run. Funky, dry, and very fun. Peach is a nice touch, but I think I prefer straightup Saison Bretta. Still. A great beer; recommended.

From bottle. Cloudy peachy orange. Thin white head. Holy peach. Millions of peaches smell. Brett and oak kick it up a notch. Give it some oaken funk. Brett and peach dominate the first flavor. Give it a wild sweetness. The finish is off though. Kind of a peach meets burnt wood. Some bitterness too. Very carbonated. Dances on the tongue.

Really disappointed in this one given the high ratings. Peach is little to non-existent in the nose and the taste. It's not a bad beer, was just expecting much more, especially given the price.

750ml bottle poured into tasting glass

A — Pours an orangey hazy color into the glass, there is a puffy white head that settles out and leaves a spot or two of lacing behind.

S — Smells of fresh peaches and light funky brett. Really peach forward and fresh, just ridiculous how fresh and juicy this smells.

T — Tastes lightly sweet and super juicy, little bit of a funky brett balance as well, yeasty, lightly phenolic.

M — Medium bodied, little to no alcohol presence, can't believe this is 10.0% ABV, just super refreshing and light.

O — Fantastic overall, errs on the sweet side, I would love this with a little bit of sour, but as it is, it's freaking great.

750ml, BBD 12/2017
Hill Farmstead

A: Hazy bright orange color. Got about a a half finger of bright white head. Faded into a layer and then a ring around edges. Some sticking lacing.

S: Smells of full on Brett. Not getting as much peach character as I was expecting. What's there is that fresh peach flesh. Wheat. Some pepper notes As it warms, more wet hay from the Brett.

T: Up front you don't get the tartness I was expecting. You get the sweet apricot wheat and thin malts. In the back end you get some tartness from the Brett. Definitely getting that soft oak aging. Rounded flavor. Dry finish.

M: Medium bodied.

Bottle shared thanks to nmann08, thanks man.

The looks is nice, it has a frothy whirring of head, some lacing, and a solid hazy orange color. The smell is just saturated with peaches, nice fresh peaches that really remind me of getting them off a farm in Virginia and Georgia. Nice oak and slight sweetness in the nose as well. Not really funky in the nose for me, aside from a wiff of Brett.

The taste is also very peachy, some more tart and dry notes come in at the back of the palate. Some semi sweet note to it, but it is very dry overall and a nice barnyard tinge straw maltiness too. Brett fruitiness comes through,

The feel as mentioned is dry, and has nice carbonation. Almost hard to gauge the body of this with how dry it is, mixed with the acidic acid.

A very nice beer, but maybe not all the way up to the hype.

Pours a medium gold with a copious amount of fluffy head. Good retention and carbonation throughout. Aroma is pretty much straight dried peach with little piques from oak tannin and champagne yeast.

Taste is much the same. The peach is present but doesn't dominate, and the Brett plays a quiet supporting role (maybe too quiet) adding some straw, loan and earthy nut. The oak lends a bit of a hot ending, and I'm not sure I loved the sweeter peach notes marriage to the heavy rustic notes. That said, it is a very strong beer with unique flavor combinations and is definitely worth a try

Opened at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013. Thanks to UncleJedi for sharing this.

As soon as the cap was cracked this exploded with fizz and went all over the kitchen. Never seen anything like it, was like a shaken up bottle of champagne.

Pours an insanely thick apricot color with small brown flakes floating around. Obviously the sediment has been disturbed here. Looks like a fruit purée.

Smell is all sweet canned peaches with only a hint of sour. Smells wonderful.

Taste is a little less impressive but still great and mostly the same--loads is sweet peach, a touch if tartness and brett but mostly fruit.

Body is really thick but carb is pretty low, I guess the initial explosion kinda killed the carb here.

This was plenty good but probably not a representative sample given that our bottle pretty much literally exploded before we poured any of it and we lost about half the bottle. Would like to try it again.

Fresh peach skins overwhelm the olfactory senses from the get go. Light breezy notes of citrus is joined by mild powdery brett funkiness, and the usual wet oak that seems to be ubiquitous in most Logsdon brews that either start or end with the word "Seizoen". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Flesh juicy peach also makes an abrupt appearance once the brew starts to warm up and gradually intensifies; my advice would be to let this brew sit for a bit before diving in.

Peach, peach, and dare I say, more peach. The non-beer way to replicate this brew, I imagine, would be to bite into a juicy ripe nectarine while standing in a barn in full cowboy gear, letting that peach sit for a bit and then taking another bite once all the barnyard stank had time to infiltrate the
surface of the peach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Labored illustrations aside, the juicy peach character is followed by an abundance of yeast-y funk, spice, and a touch of tartness; like most Logsdon brews that either start with the word "Seizoen" this one also has a lightly earthy and clean citrus aftertaste toward the end.

Medium-bodied, creamy initial mouthfeel, with gentle carbonation.

I suspect they poured peach syrup into seizoen bretta. The peach flavor didn't taste natural and was not as explosive as some have mentioned. Overall, not bad

Disclaimer: 2014 vintage consumed after Flora Cherry.

This beer smells amazing. It explodes with peaches on the nose.

The taste is really where this beer missed the mark. It delvers on the peach but less than the nose would indicate. I was hoping for more sour on the palate to strengthen this beer. The finish was bizarre and undesirable.

Sweet peach and peach skin aroma and flavor. Clean, dry mineral profile makes it an easy drinking beer. Oak and brett add subtle complexity with bright champagne underneath. The body is light and refreshing.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 1/2019. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy and lightly tart peach, apricot, pineapple, lemon zest, white grape, pear, green apple, white pepper, honey, bread, hay, straw, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome balance and complexity of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, peaches, and pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of lightly tart peach, apricot, pineapple, lemon zest, white grape, pear, green apple, white pepper, honey, bread, hay, straw, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness and slight tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, apricot, pineapple, lemon zest, white grape, pear, green apple, white pepper, honey, hay, straw, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, peaches, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly slick/prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome fruited brett saison. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy/funky yeast, peaches, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Shared at my Birthday whale tasting. I shared this one, thanks to HaveUSeenMyCellar.

Pours a light fizzy head that barely comes, hazy peach color.

Nose has some Brett funk, horsehair, light peaches, fruity but funky, canned peaches but light.

Taste starts funky, wild Brett but not super funky, nice juice, fresh canned peaches, esters and hint of phenols, grainy bready yeasty, smooth and doesn't drink like 10% at all, finish is juicy, light bitterness, peach, syrupy and sticky, light dusty oak.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad, but not as good as I expected. Drinks well, but peaches are too light, and funk isn't as much as I expected either.

Quick review from written notes.

This was the latest batch that came out this year. Hazy orange with a compact head and some spotty lace around the edges, thin veil across the surface.

Nice subtle peachy aroma, pleasantly fruit forward. Increases as it warms.

Moderately sour upfront, lightly bitter in the aftertaste. Definite peach taste and aroma, seemed a little more prevalent in the taste. Overall a great wild ale, Brett wasn't all that expressive but you can't go wrong with a peach sour ale, imho.

Thanks to FondueVoodoo for this one.

Awesome aroma of peaches and apricots. Totally hazy light peach colored body. Spicy peaches at first in the flavor, tartness is assertive. Brett flavors come out more in finish. Very nice though a 750ml was a bit much to finish by myself :)

Wholly peach and brett Batman. These two equally dominate the smell and taste with some alcohol esters. Not really sour. Very balanced and good.......

The aroma smacks of peach rings. Peach juice, peach candy, peach flesh, it is mostly dominated by that with some wheat and Brett in the back.

The flavor is very different as the beer offers pear juice, a touch of peach flavor, lots of intense metallic-like Brett flavor with a dry finish.

Thanks Todd!

A - Pours pale yellow, white head, spotty lace.

S - Peaches...millons of peaches, peaches for me! The actual brett is a small 2nd compared to the peach note, but I'm not complaining.

T - Peaches! Fruity sweetness, light brett funk, dry citrus. This beer drinks like 5% or so, I can't believe it's 10%. Finish is all sweet peaches and some light dry funk.

M - Light body, good carbonation, clean finish.

O - Amazing peach-saison of some sort...I wanted more but the bottle was crushed in 1 minute! I guess I'll have to track one of these down for myself...my wife would love this stuff.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy, peachy color. Fluffy head. Very turbid. Aroma is full of fresh, under-ripe, slightly tart peaches. Earthy nose as well. Sweet and tart peaches. Flavor gives me a very authentic peach flavor that comes in both a sweet and sour manner. Sweet maltiness as well as a rustic funk from the Brett. The Brett character matches the peachy flavors very well. I am actually pleased to find that this one is not a super sour brew. Very peachy, Bretty, and authentic. The alcohol is hidden in with preposterous efficiency. I would like to experience more oak flavor. Overall I enjoyed this and thought it was nearly worth the hefty price tag.

Near turbid golden with a central dome of light cream foam and little lace. The nose is really nice, peaches, apricots, brett, seltzer, vitamins, tart tones and just a touch of sweetness at the end. Nice tartness on the sides of the tongue, some brett watery character, some bits of lacto style yogurt character and plenty of peach, but the peach seems unripened. Medium on full bodied with hi carb that dissipates quickly and leaves me quite dry - this forces me to take another drink...sadly/not! Nice beer.
