Bottle shared at Klooster. Hazy orange with a thin white head. Notes of peaches, wood, light funk, mineral. Mediym body and carbonation and a mellow funky finish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours orange, hazy and cloudy. Smells of peach, sugar, floral, dirt. Flavor is abundant of both peach and brett (surprise, surprise) somewhat sharp, but not boozey. ABV is well hidden. I almost wish I aged this longer to get it a bit smoother, but I wanted to taste the peach before it faded. Overall, enjoyable.. but there may be better options for the hefty price tag.

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Look: Cloudy, semi-opaque, bright golden color, three fingers of quickly dissipating head, good spiderweb lacing

Smell: Sweet ripe peach puree, peach jam, light farmhouse funk, melon, Brett, stone fruit, vanilla, peach ice cream

Taste: Upfront lots of Brett, cantalope, peach is lighter on flavor than the nose, a surprising amount of hop presence which helps round the flavor out. The bright organic peach, hops, and Brett compliment each other brilliantly.

Feel: Medium mouthfeel, slow drying, somewhat syrupy and coating.

The smell of this beer reminded me of those super fruity peach gummy rings. Great taste of funk and peach as well. Nice solid beer that is super sour.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a cloudy kind of peach colored mixture with yellow beer. Nice 3/4" white head. Aroma was delicious and as advertised: peach and brett! Phenomenal head retention.

Taste, wow, nice and light bodied, yet delivering a substantial amount of brett dryness, funk, oak and peaches. Easy to see why this is so appreciated. Alternates between creamy peach and dry saison body mouthfeel.

How does it hide that big abv? Amazingly done. Everything blends together well without any aspect dominating. Does everything well, carbonation spot on. I wish I had more, would bang again, and probably buy every time I saw it. Got this one at Belmont Station.

BOTTLE: Beeswax coated pry-off crown cap. Purchased at a bodega in Brooklyn for a wallet-annihilating $40.00 USD. 1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass. Orange colourful label art. Bottle #20020. Best by 10/2020.
'
10% ABV. "Oak aged organic ale brewed with peaches." Brewed with peaches and brettanomyces. "Final refermentation with pear juice."

Expectations are extremely high given my love for the brewery and this beer's presence on the top 250 beers list.

HEAD: ~3 fingers worth of white head. Frothy, creamy, gorgeously soft, and of great complexion. Consistency is terrific. Retention is excellent - ~8+ minutes.

BODY: Pale murky orange of okay vibrance. I see no yeast or sediment within, but it definitely appears unfiltered.

Appears well-carbonated. It's a nice looking beer and captures the lively unfiltered look of a great saison, but I can't say the vibrance of the body colour is on par with that of the best expressions of the style.

AROMA: Soft orchard peaches, orange sherbert, soft juicy pear, creamy notes, pale malts. The soft luscious peach is impeccable, elevating this aroma easily to world class level. Promises a juicy peachy genuine brew with absurd depth and expressiveness of flavour.

Any oak is too subdued to be noticeable. Sweetness/bitterness balance seems perfect. Nectary juicy goodness is the highlight of this aroma; I'm salivating just awaiting the first sip.

Aromatic intensity is perfect (mild to moderate).

No overt hop notes; maybe some seamless fruity tones. Yeast character has an incredibly subtle funky bend without distracting. As soft and delicate an aroma as they come.

No off-notes or overt alcohol.

TASTE & TEXTURE: Creamy soft peach, smacky lactic tartness (was the brettanomyces used lambicus? This is straight-up sour), evocative expressive orchard peach, soft juicy luscious pear, subtle yeasty dryness (bringing just enough to coax more depth of flavour out of this brew without making it drag on the palate), and creamy peach sherbert.

Hides its 10% ABV angelically well, hiding any alcohol beneath layers of billowing softness. Couldn't be more delicate or gentle on the palate. Perfectly smacky on the palate, making the slight tart sourness sing. Comfortingly soft. This mouthfeel may be perfect; rarely do I encounter such harmony of softness, fragility, and body. It's so light it's insanely drinkable, it's aptly smooth and wet, and carbonation is perfect.

Malt backbone melts into the dominant fruity tones, letting them take the spotlight. This is as gestalt a flavour profile as I've ever encountered, blending every constituent note together in a layered cohesive way, elevating the whole above the sum of its parts. The peach sings.

Noticeable acidity.

Sourness is maybe a 4/10, which is ideal for a saison in my view. It lacks any drying funkiness, and there aren't too many fruity esters mucking with the fruity focus of the brew. Balance is perfect. Depth of flavour is excellent. Duration of flavour is high for the style. Intensity of flavour is moderate. I can't get enough of this stuff.

OVERALL: Logsdon outdoes themselves with this stellar brew. This is possibly the best saison I've had from any brewery in North America, and I can't vet its quality enough. It's earned its position on the current top 250 list, and I'd heartily recommend it to any discerning drinker - even at its seemingly obscene $40/bottle price. When I think of true perfection in terms of texture, this beer will be amongst the first to pop into my head. Its juicy softness accentuates the peach emphasis of the brew beautifully. Awingly good - ineffably so. Just fuckingly delicious. I find myself inhaling this and simultaneously being shocked by its 10% - how is this so effortlessly drinkable at that high an ABV?

Nitpicky as I am with great beers, I have to admit I struggle to find many issues with this aside from petty things like appearance. At a certain point, excellence becomes undeniable.

This is what we talk about when we talk about beer as art.

This one gushed like crazy when I opened it, but it was still amazing. The carb was a little cray cray, but the taste and complexity were on point. What a great beer.

A - Deep nectarine body with two fingers of yellowed paper head. Great retention and nice lace.

S - Awesome nose. Juicy canned peaches, peach skin, and a touch of hay.

T - Sweet peach married with a bold, waxy brett note. Dry tannin center. Peach juice, hay and tart wax through the finish.

M - Smooth and medium-full for the style.

O - Delicious, funky and refreshing.

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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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

Gotta listen to the bottle for this gem - let it warm up before enjoying. The flavor profile really opens up and makes the experience something special. Aroma is peach. So much peach! There's a hint of lavendar on the nose followed by muscular oak and that funky brett. Taste is fresh peach, tart peach, oak and brett that finishes with a touch of apricot. The lacing is pourus and sticky and leaves behind a webbed trail down the glass. Finishes dry and with a lingering tartness that puckers the cheek but doesn't overpower. Awesome beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

Yields a clouded amber-yellow color with a decent sized head.

Lots of ripe, almost overripe peaches on the nose with an earthy quality and ice-tea sweet malts. A faint, funky, dusty sourness cuts through the prominent fruitiness, which reveals a luscious sweetness, reminding me of a peach jogurt.

Has a medium carbonation among a fuller body with a late dryness, coating up the sourness.

Drinks with a heavy, fermented fruitiness from the very beginning, complimented by sweet, cakey malts and a creamy softness. Has a jogurty sourness, which gets accompanied by a perfumy peach fruitiness throughout. Finish with more acidic jogurt, still soft on the tongue with even more perfumy peach.

Seems a bit unbalanced to me due to the overly artificial, perfume dominance, which is pretty intense on both aromas and flavors. Got a nice, well fitting tartness, which adds to the richness of the peaches. Unfortunately its pushing too far, adding a distractive artifical flavor to the taste.

Was pleasantly surprised with this one. Peaches are far from my favorite fruit, but this managed to add a nice sweetness (and maybe some help from the oak) to give it a perfect balance. I enjoyed this on the same night as Fuzzy, and this was definitely the better peach beer. Cheers Logsdon!

Look:Nice head that leaves a ring and a bit of lacing.
Smell: Peaches, of course, with a tiny bit of pear.
Taste: Taste follows the nose with a semi-dry peach finish.
Feel: Nice mouthfeel.
Overall: Finally trying this for the first time as we just received 2 cases today. This bottle will certainly not be my last!

Drank from a 1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz./750 ml wax dipped bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Belmont, MA
Bottle No. 20430
Best by: 10/2020
Served in a tulip

Beautiful appearance. The hazy, golden-amber liquid was capped by a billowing, four-finger tall, bright white, fluffy mass. Large clumps of Brussels-style lacing cascaded down the glass. The head slowly dropped to a thick, frothy film.

The aroma was somewhat underwhelming. A super crisp, dry, powdery yeasty quality was balanced by subtle peach notes. Bright and lively. Slightly floral. A bit jasmine tea-like. The nose was also moderately tart and brett-y. Slightly funky. As the beer sat, the peach subsided and the yeastiness intensified. Dry, tannic, oaky notes also came through big time. Later, the peach reappeared.

The flavor profile was super dry and tannic. Fairly bitter as well. There was a subtle fruity quality on the front end and a touch of malty sweetness, but this was quickly washed away by tart, brett-y notes and a crisp, dry, powdery yeastiness. The beer was also really oaky and tannic. Lemon rind appeared on the back end and carried into the finish. Moderately bitter with a hint of earthy, aged hops. The oaky barrel notes again came through strong. Super tannic and dry. Almost a bit astringent. As the beer sat, subtle fruity notes appeared. Though the flavor profile was rather unrefined, the alcohol was barely noticeable.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Soft and creamy. This almost seemed a bit undercarbonated. The liquid contained a fine, frothy effervescence that tuned smooth and supple on the palate.

I really enjoyed Logsdon's Seizoen Bretta and Oak Aged Bretta but found this beer to be overly dry, tannic and one-dimensional. Even though I opened this bottle only a few months after cellaring it, the peach was hardly noticeable. Looking at many of the reviews here on BA, my only guess would be that this was stored for a while before being distributed. That said, I would love to revisit a fresher bottle someday.

Bottle poured into a tulip. Huge peach on the nose with a bit of funky brett. Wish there was a bit more sourness/funkiness to this one but, overall, this is a nicely done beer with dry but prevalent peach notes.

A: Hazy, golden orange color with a white head that doesn't stick around for too long. S: The second best peach smelling beer to VSP. Holy hell, it just hits you in the face with fresh peach skins with a touch of funk and a little oak, but mostly a huge peach bomb. T: Nice peach with some funk and oak dryness on the back. The taste isn't as peach heavy as the smell, but still very nice. M: Has the nice creamy mouthfeel that helps with the lacto that you feel more than you taste. O: I was really pumped to try this and it was very good. It's not as good as VSP, but it's a solid beer

Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey/golden color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of light tart notes with funky yeast notes and fresh peach notes is quite awesome. Taste is a great mix between some peach notes with loads of tart notes with light acidic flavours and some funky yeast notes also noticeable. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Best peach beer I have ever had with lots of dominating flavours and nice balance between the funky and tart flavours.

Poured a very hazy light orange with thin white head.

Bit of brett funk on the nose and lots of peaches. Wouldn't characterize this as "funky" per se, moree sour fruitiness,

Great noticeable peach, refreshing sour note. Reminds me a lot of Allagash Farm to Face

High carbonation the between this and the aciditity, I think the other reviewers referencing champagne are accurate.

Pours hazy orange in color. Smell is big peach with a hint of funk. Funk is more present in the flavor. Not much residual sweetness but not overly dry. Alcohol VERY well hidden. Light bodied in spite of strength. Funky peach juice. More funk would be great, but very nice drinking beer that tells you exactly what it is.

Look: Poured into a Chuck's Hop Shop taster. Light orange body, thin white head.

Smell : Apple, pear, citrus, and a note of barnyard funk.

Taste: Citrus flavors of orange, lemon, even some lime. White grapes, peach.

Feel : Medium-Light body, medium-high carbonation. Dry, and slightly tart.

L: Had on tap at Chuck's Hop Shop. Body is a cloudy golden yellow with a thin ring around the glass.

S: Fresh peach and citrus dominate the nose. Some funk in the background.

T: Quite citrusy for being made with peach. Starts with bright tart orange and lemon which transitions to a dry peach vineous nature at the end. It reminds me of champagne or a white wine. There is some mild funky straw in the background.

F: Light bodied with high carbonation. Once again I am reminded of champagne.

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.

Finally got to try this at Mikkeler SF. Mild funk, peach, and some lesser passionfruit and orange in the nose. Pretty subtle. More peach and orange in tase followed by slight acidity and lingering sweet and sour sensation. Pretty dry and medium carb. Really good but perhaps not worth chasing.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for this whale

A: Medium orange, with some tangerine and honey around the edges - hazy, but not murky - pours with a medium-large, fluffy, creamy, off-white head, fades to a wispy cap, leaves streaks and spots of lacing

S: Funky peach soda - bursting with peach in every way - ripe peach flesh, peach juice - Logsdon's lovely saison yeast aromas, with some yeasty funk and spice, green apple esters - tart, funky peaches - some hints of citrus, mainly orange and lemon - straight-up Brett, with some powdery funk, cherry skins - nice amount of oak, ripe and woody without being overbearing - some pale malts and wheat at the base with some crackers and light biscuits

T: Juicy peach madness - peaches really stand out about as much as one would expect, with loads of ripe, juicy peach flesh - tart and lightly funky peaches as well - saison yeast funk, with some spice - funky tartness with a touch of sour - lightly earthy but also bright and clean - citrus, grapefruit zest and some lemon - powdery Brett funk with some cherry skins - chewy, damp, musty oak - pale grains, crackers, light biscuits - overall, remarkably juicy and fruity

M: On the heavy side of medium, very smooth, almost creamy, carbonation on the low side, mostly clean, dry finish

O: Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches

Well, this lives up to my personal hype. It quite literally tastes like Seizoen Bretta blended with peach juice. The amount of fruit in this is insane, without actually just tasting like a peach soda. This is well worth the search.
