Huge thanks to Luke (writerljberg) for this special beer. This took gold in the American-Style Brett Ale category at World Beer Cup 2012. My first Logsdon beer. The cap comes off with a vicious hiss. As I put my hands on the keyboard to type that last sentence the foam starts bubbling over the mouth of the bottle and onto my pants. Great move on my part *shakes my fist toward Oregon*. Snifter.

After I typed the word "snifter" I turned around to speak to my fiancé and I knocked 4 ounces of the beer onto my keyboard and mouse pad so I spent 10 minutes cleaning that up. Then, I noticed that foam had gained the mouth of the bottle again and a bit more got on my desk. This beer has been quite an ordeal so far.

The bottle presentation is very nice. The label art itself is beautiful and it has a peach coloring to it that adds to its attractiveness.

A: Hazy yellow orange with a big mousse-like white head. Good retention and sheets of lacing are left behind.

S: Sugary sweet and lightly tart peaches with pronounced leather and earthy notes. Apple blends with pear, apricot, and floral character. Malt is soft and grainy. This smells amazing. There's a subtle spiciness with a restrained barnyard presence.

T: Tart peaches up front with apple, pear, apricot, leather, drying oak, and a little vanilla. The fruit is bright and expressive, with some yogurt-like lactic character. There's a bit of lemon with a mild citric acidity. The finish is bursting with peach and lemon with oak, light tannins, and a dry tartness. This is 10%? Good god. Life is over when brewers can make beers that seem 5% but are actually 10%.

M: Lower medium body with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is spritzy, dry, tannic, and smooth.

Overall: Exceptional. I feel fortunate to be able to try this. Highly recommended.

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.

Shared by JLindros at his Birthday Whale Tasting. Reviewed from notes. Its worth noting this was a yellow cap bottle. There were two cap colors. Black signified longer time in barrels I do believe.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a clear peach juice with a thin white quarter inch head that fades to a light thin blanket.

S - Super bretty with very light, super dry peach notes. Faint horsehair and peach syrup. Not quite as peachy as I figured it would be.

T - Taste is well, peach and brett. Light peach juice and canned peaches. The pear comes through as well thanks to the base beer. Again though, not nearly as much peach as I thought this would have. No alcohol at all though.

M - Mouthfeel is sold. Its light and crisp with no noticeable alcohol. Super impressive.

O - Overall, a good beer but not quite worth the hype. I have a few bottles myself and I think Jared just got an old bottle as there really should have been more peaches in this.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with orange/tangerine edges and a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring.  Spotty lacing left behind.  

Musty brett aroma with some barrel and a boat load of luscious organic peach.  Farmhouse yeast and musty funk in the nose with dry brett, damp wood and a very prominent peach presence.  Nice fruited saison.  The brett really stands out after it warms and is nicely complimented by the oak.  The peach character is dominant but doesn't smell artificial nor is it overpowering.  Nice balance of different characteristics in the nose.

Medium bodied with a prominent musty brett character along with dry oak and sour peach.  The dry brett flavor is really strong with musty funk perfectly complimenting the farmhouse yeast.  Oak is dry/toasted but blends nicely with the bugs and funky yeast notes.  Peaches come in at the end with a luscious organic feel.  Not cloying or overly sweet with some sour acidity lingering in the finish. Slightly puckering with pit and fleshy fruit flavor.  Very complex but it's one of most balanced beers I've ever had.  Flavor and mouthfeel are nearly perfect.  I wasn't a fan of regular Seizoen or Seizoen Bretta but I highly recommend doing whatever it takes to try this one.

Pours a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma of mildly tart peaches upfront, some wild yeast, and a little oak - peaches mostly though. Flavor brings out potent peaches upfront, quickly transitioning to tart peaches, lots of brett and a little oak. Extremely peachy and mildly wild, with loads of complexity. Finishes mildly tart and wild. Extremely high drinkability, with no alcohol presence whatsoever.

In past years I have given this beer a 4.5+, but I'm not crazy about the 2015 release. Smells great, but tastes very perfume-y, and that aggressive Logsdon brett strain comes across slightly soapy in this case.

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

750ml bottle poured into tulip 13/7/14 bottle #4676 BB 01/2019 big thanks to Rutager for the bottle

A cloudy orange liquid, I can only see a few bubbles but there's plenty in there somewhere as it pumps out a dense three finger foam that has great retention leaving rings deep down the glass

S massive peach nose, smells juicy as hell, some apricots, pear, green apple, doughy, mild funk and wood but for the most its fresh peaches, smells awesome I wouldn't change a thing

T more wood and funk and less of the massive peachy notes I was loving on the nose, still tastes great but then nose was a very hard act to follow

M heavy side of medium, a little tart, just stays on the creamy side of foam, no booze on the way down, wood, brett, and peaches linger faintly for ages

O smells amazing, the booze is completely hidden, way too easy drinking, very well put together, everything meshes together beautifully

This one hit the spot, the nose is unbelievable, 10% is completely hidden, not sure if I'd age this one with the peaches kicking ass right now, another one of those beers I want to drink the day its bottled and five years down the road.

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.

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.

750ml bottle of the 2014 release. Poured into a Cigar City snifter today, 4/23/2014.

A- Dark yellow, hazy body with a one finger white head with solid retention, some lacing, nothing different from the base Seizoen-Bretta, to be honest. Though this is certainly hazier than I remember the base being.

S- Peach juice, a little bit of horseblanket funk, no acidity at all, slight tartness, some pale malt. But make no mistake about it, this is tasty peach juice.

F- Palate on this beer is even better than it smells. Some stone fruit skin, peach juice, slight horseblanket funk without any rubbery off-flavours, slight tartness, sharp wheatiness and a bit of spice. No real acidity to this but I will not complain about how much peach character there is.

M- Medium bodied, incredibly drinkable, plenty of carbonation that is very refreshing similar to the base beer. And there is absolutely no indication that this is a 10% ABV beer. Wow.

O- Excellent drinking experience, one of the best peach beers I think I'll ever have the chance to try. It's a nice improvement on the base Seizoen-Bretta, and I can't imagine the peach will stay around for much longer. This is a beer I definitely recommend drinking fresh.

huge thanks to egrace for sharing this bottle!

poured into tulip glass.

reviewed from notes.

Had Peche 'n Brett side by side with Fantastia b2.

Appearance: opaque orange bodied beer with thin white head that drops down to no head.

Smell: light notes of peaches and dried apricots. Musty basement funkiness. Yeasty.

Taste: Musky funk forward with brett notes. Hint of peaches and possibly some citrus notesas well. Finishes with more funk, oak and earthiness becomes more pronounced.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Carbonation is at the perfect level. It has soft carbonation while remaining lively just as you would want it to be for this beer style. This beer is without a doubt the most light bodied beer sitting at 10% and its by a long shot. It drinks like its around 4 to 5% abv. Super drinkable and not even a hint of the 10% abv level. How Logsden did that with this beer has impressed me.

Overall: Really glad that I got to try this beer! Its the best beer that I have tried from Logsden! Fastastia just edged out the Peche 'n Brett in the side by side.

Never thought I'd see this on the shelves. I guess living in the 'burbs does have its benefits. This batch was released Jan 2013

With a slow gush that renders to nought all my patience in letting this settle down after a rough ride in the shopping cart and the subsequent drive home, this beer is a hazy, peachy orange with a dense, light peach head with excellent retention and moderate lacing. Does a non-gushing Logsdon beer even exist? Never mind. The beer itself is fantastic. The nose exhibits such a bright, vibrant and delicate peach nose, fresh, fragrant, fruity and floral that it makes me want summer all over again. The base saison is clear - spicy clove and white pepper with a blend of Brett phenols,barnyard, with honey, rustic grains (spelt?) and a touch of fattiness and yeasty aroma that does serve to accentuate the fruit, the nose is incredible. A touch of coriander seed is also present.

The palate opens with an exceptional blend of peach flavor, mild peach acidity and saison and Brett spices. A blend of lemon and peach acidity lends a piquancy that really does open up the palate to multiple waves of flavor. White pepper, clove-y Brett, a little bit of spicy alcohol, barnyard, a faint bay leaf note, a little bit of kaffir lime brightess, the aromatics of orange blossom honey, all in beautiful harmony, the palate really is an education. Despite its strength, the peach flavor never takes over, playing the role of an equal partner in this complex piece. Recognizably and enjoyably deep and varied, it lends an excellent flavor here. A touch yeasty on the finish along with a blend of peach, clove and honey, this beer is medium in body, moderately carbonated and a treat on the palate. The nose had me worried about whether this would be too fatty for my liking, but good lord, is this near perfect. The alcohol is shockingly well-hidden, there is no way I would have pegged this at 10%.

Easily the best beer I've had in 6 months. The way the peach is expressed on the nose reminds me of my first encounter with Yellow Bus in its youth with all the brilliant peach aromatics stunningly layered. This comes with the highest of recommendations.

**Edit 21 Feb 2014**

Note to self : stop aging beers. Especially those that don't need it.

Less peachy, more Brett forward than when fresh, slightly sulfury/ farty with the peach being more of a tart peach/ character than the bright, complex redolent peach character that it had fresh. That said, it's still fleshy and mildly frothy. The palate still has a ton of peach, but it does seem to have lost some of the brash brilliance of its youth. The peach juice has fermented out, leaving an earthy, spicy Brett character. Moderately sweet nonetheless, this is still very good closer to a 4.3 than 4.6 fresh. Yeast character is moderate and a faint heat are noticeable.

Bottle opened on 1.30.13
Batch 2

A - Pours a hazy, lighter orange with a one finger cream-colored head with big bubbles that slowly fade.

S - Sweet peaches, some Brett, and a touch of butter oak.

T - Brett, then wood, and finishes with some peach.

D - Super soft, Decent carbonation with a medium body.

O - Not a peach explosion as I remembered from Batch 1, but a nice balance and very layered. Super brew!

Big thanks to Jedwards for the final pre-move blowout cellar crash. Pours a hazy tangerine hue with a loose, quarter inch, bright white head that dissipates into a consistent slick. The nose on this beer is fantastic - peach cocktail. Taste is lightly tart with peaches and perhaps apricots. Mouthfeel is light and lively with an assertive acidity. This beer is pretty incredible I have to say. I don't get much Brett, but lots of peach and an extremely well-hidden abv.

Slight gusher on the outset, should have been prepared, luckily only lost a couple drops as we had glasses ready.

Pours a very hazy yellow color with a thick white head that recedes to leave a thick amount of soapy lacing.

Aromas begin quite rustic and earthy intially which was surprising. There is a nice earthy, bretty funk with a sugary pilsner/pale malt base. As it warms there is a slight presence of peaches but honestly I was expecting more. There is also more and more emerging oak and some Farmhouse spiced yeast.

The tastes follows the nose with plenty of oaky wood and yeast-induced spice with some moderate tartness. There is a very solid rustic bretty funk to this with more and more emerging fruity apricot notes.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation on the higher end of medium. Finish is perfectly dry and musty and earty with slight stone fruit in the background.

Overall I would have liked a little a little more peach flavor to balance the saison backbone but that aside this is probably the best Farmhouse ale (and definitely the best organically produced beer) I have ever had. I wouldn't call it a wild ale, per say, because it was more rustic and less overly sour or tart. The fact that this was 10% was ridiculous, it drinks like 7% max. Not a drop of alcohol. I would say crack this ASAP as I believe the peach flavor is fading and the Brett is really taking hold. I definitely plan to seek out more beers from this new Oregon farmhouse brewer.

A-Cloudy orange, two finger head, leaves nice lacing.

S-Holy peaches! Perfect amount, not artificial at all. Tad bit of oak and grass.

T-Not as sour as I was expecting, still tart though. Great deal of peaches, a little too much for my tastes.

M-Medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

O-A tad bit more sour notes and this could be perfect. Easily the best peach beer on the market.

Big thanks to Libbey for this bottle...

A: Pours a nice cloudy gold with pink/orange hues around the edges. There is a good amount of head, but it settles quickly, leaving a rocky layer across the top of the beer.

S: The nose is huge fruity peach/apricot, a good helping of brett, some additional funk, and touch of fresh cut grass. The peach notes are exactly self evident, but this beer is definitely fruit forward.

T: Right away I get a good mix of fruit and funk. The peaches are there and they mix well with the funky brett, but it's not super intense peach. It's just a nice balance between sweet and tart fruit and brett.

M: Light bodied beer. Good amount of carbonation, sweet to start followed immediately by that familiar brett funk. The flavors last through to the finish where is dries up a bit, leaving some residual funk to the palate.

O: This is a pretty darn good beer. I was really hoping that the peaches would be ridiculously over the top, but it wasn't. Still... the flavors are great and the brett funk is just right. I am incredibly happy to have been able to try this beer, and would love to try it again in the future.

Appearance. A little bit of a gusher but this came straight from the cellar without additional chilling in the fridge. Pours a bright, rich gold with a little peach and a finger of white head that leaves some great lace.

Smell. Massive amounts of peach ...not exactly fresh but sweet and tart like a fresh peach pie, some dry brett funk and dried hardwood, a bit of light grainy malt and maybe a drop of rum.

Taste. Nice light peaches, lightly sweet and lightly sour much like fruit itself, some dry brett, a bit of bitter wood and little wheaty and grainy light malts. The brett lasts a while on the tongue.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium+ soft carbonation. Nice warmth in the throat.

Overall. A very nice saison with plenty of peaches. Nothing too mind blowing, but a very high quality beer like everything from this brewer.

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.

750ml bottle, brouwers, split

Hazy peach body - thin layer of beige bubble. "Tastes like a Logsdon beer". The brett is in full force - aging this beer seems foolish. The glorious peach notes hit in the finish and are a real nice contrast of sweet-tart. Grassy, funky, some oak, bready notes. Fantastic stuff.

Bottle No. P3746 (from the January 2013 IIRC, celleared upon release). Poured into my large St. Feuillien goblet, Peche 'n Brett is chill hazed burnt gold with a creamy, tight bubbled white head leaving sheets of foamy lace.

Smell is gorgeously soft, sweet peaches and pear nectar. The brett flutters through the fruit oh so subtly, adding just a touch of depth. Really fantastic.

Taste is also soft, the peach evident yet softened by the drying brett, which is really rather clean, while still making it's presence known. Perhaps just a touch understated, but the delicate nuance really adds the drinkability.

Mouthfeel is soft and dry, with fine carbonation.

Drinkability is high, it's really hard to believe this is 10% ABV. Not to mention how subtle the brett and sweetness from the fruits are, no palate wrecker here, just extremely balanced. What an elegant beer, fantastic.

Notes taken from 9/29 from the craziest bottle share that i have ever been a part of. Thanks so much to the NYC and Hoboken crew for letting me participate in this incredible day of drinking long time wants and insanity.

Thanks kindly for sharing.

a - looks just like the 5 glasses of amazing sours in front of me. yellow orange with thin foamy orange head.
s - fresh peaches...yum
t - fresh peaches again. outrageous. finish is a bit odd with a little up tick of booziness, but the flavoring is really nice otherwise.
m - a bit boozy, kind of like peachy sangria
o - really great peach flavor. feels like peach vodka with fresh peaches swimming in it.

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 :)

Pour is hazy golden yellow with a tight slightly off white head. Nose is light of peach fuzz, light dusty funk, cobweb, faint cheese. Taste is light, soft peach, dusty Brett and faint cheese, assertive carbonation, fairly dry finish and a well done light sourness through the back.
