look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

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.

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.

i'll cut right to the chase

smell, exactly as the name states, I get some peaches and some brett sour funk, little else and not particularly inviting

taste- of course this is not a bad beer, but given the hype and subsequent expectations,this is a huge letdown. it is a one note peach and some light light funk right at the front of the tongue and fades to a dry metallic flavor. I understand this is 10% and I give the brewers a ton of credit for this attempt but certainly falls way short compared to the top dogs in this game. Competing with AWA's of the world and other lambics and guezes, it wouldn't stand a chance.

I always use baseball analogies whenever possible and if you compare this to a top Awa ( RR, LA, guezes) It would be like me facing pedro martinez in his prime, if I am peche n brett and the big dogs of the sour game are pedro.

I will say as it warmed it improved modestly with some more funk notes permeating the palate , but unless you can get it on the cheap and don't have to give up much in a trade, i'd rather just spend that money on some RR varieties with a good sushi lunch .

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.

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.

A: Pours a hazy orange color, nice frothy white head.
S: Smells of Belgian style earthy yeast and hay. Sour peach scent as well
T: Sweet and fruity up front with a slightly sour peach taste to it. Normally I don't like fruit in my beer but this is just the right balance.
M: Smooth easy drinking beer. I cant believe this is 10% the ETOH is so well hidden its crazy.
D: This is a very drinkable summertime beer. Its quite pricey for a bottle of this but well worth it in my opinion.

750 ml bottle generously shared at the Peg's tasting on 3/8/13.

A- Pours a hazy peach... yellow color, topped with a thin white head.

S- Mostly a huge, huge load of peaches. Just a whole lotta peaches, which are juicy and fresh and awesome. There are also some notes of lactic acidity and mild brett notes.

T- Similar to the aroma, although the peaches are slightly toned down. Still, lots of fresh juicy peaches, lactic tartness, mild brett flavors and some oak.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth and nicely carbonated, dry finish. The alcohol is seriously invisible, can't believe it's 10%.

O- One of my new favorite peach beers, I've loved everything so far from Logsdon, this was a real treat.

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.

The beer is hazy and light orange with a small white head. The aroma offers peaches, brett (shocker), wild yeast, funk. Straightforward in both the aroma and flavor. Really nice. Juicy peaches throughout. Mild acidity with fairly low carbonation. A touch of spice in the finish. Mild bitterness as well. Really tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one during the Churchill's weekend festivities.

Bottle No. P2192. Best by 12/2017.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and slightly funky with peach and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with a fermented peach flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is light and refreshing despite its ABV.

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.

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.

2013 bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead stem. Thanks Zane!

Pour: Hazy, bright orange. Two fingers of fluffy white head from and leaves some heavy, thick lacing. Fantastic looking beer.

Smell: Woah! Big peach and pears up front, as well as some pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. A very pronounced funk. Hints of sweet breadyness enter, but only just. This just smells perfect, and maybe the best smelling beer I've ever had.

Taste: Big peaches up front, that quickly subside into lactic tartness and a very earthy brett funk. Lemon, white grape tannins, and pear. The Seizoen Bretta base is undeniable through the mid-palate. Finishes with tart peaches and pear, more funk, and a dry white wine barrel oak.

Mouthfeel: Insanely juicy. No hints of alcohol whatsoever. Goes down very easily, and finishes quite dry.

Overall: This is a top tier wild ale, no doubt. I think I prefer Mimosa a tad more, and Oak Aged Bretta more than both. I absolutely will be seeking this out again soon.

A: Pours a hazy orange color, rather bright with a small white head on top that reduced to a bubbly ring on top. Sporadic clingy lace.

S: A great combination of bretty aromas and peaches. Some definite hay/barnyard funk going on with ripe fruit. Just a bit of oak.

T: Nice fresh peach flavor, not super peachy, but very balanced with the brett. Very light tartness mixed with the funk that the brett brings to the beer. Light wheat and grainy malt in the background.

M: Light bodied with medium carbonation. Extremely drinkable, especially for 10%!

O: Really a great beer, one of the best I have had recently, certainly lives up to its reputation. Look forward to trying the other Logsdon Saisons.

750ml bottle (#P3951; best by 01/2018), beeswax seal on a golden cap.

A: Small hiss as the seal is broken, then pours a pretty apricot/copper orange with foamy/fizzy whiteness cresting just at the edge of the glass. Bubbles percolate and cling precariously, head doesn't last (a breaking skimcoat seconds after the pour), neither does the lacing. Overall complexion is slightly haze, moreso as the bottle nears its finish.

S: Nose-tickling 'funk', a bready/earthy/ moldy medley that reeks of wet hay and over-ripened fruit. Good strength - really present when poured warmer, closer to 'room temperature'.

T: Soft peach skin, juicy and laced with tartness. Lemon rinds, green apples, cut grass, a trace of pine. Finishes kind of acidic... with a chalky/mineral bitterness.

M: I'm susceptible to reflux from acidity, and got it right away on first sip. oddly, it mellowed out quickly and things were fine as the smoother grainy/bready characteristics gave balance. Not too fizzy/carbonated - medium body. This is 10%? Wow, one would hardly know it.

O: After tasting this beer at least 5 times, it's safe to say: "a terrific beer". Considering the "best by" dating on all bottles extends 5 years into the future, ALL are pretty 'young', so it'll be interesting to taste them again in 2, 3, 4 years (or more). Suffice to say the 'peach' is upfront right now, the tartness zesty and aggressive. Thank goodness there are a few cellared to taste later. Well played, Logsdon.

S- tart, funk, peaches, fruity. Amazing 4.5

O- amazing beer that was a pleasure to try. I'd love another bottle of this. 5

Pours a light straw color, orange-ish, really. Very cloudy. Nice big head. White. Lots of small bubbles. Creamy. Very good lacing. Quite a pretty beer. Nice aroma of saison funk and smokey peaches. The peach character is fresh and deep. It has a very light smoke fruit character. Lots of yeast earthiness. A bit mineral-ish. It's a cultured peach flavor. Not terribly jammy or pungent, but a rustic citrus peach wood flavor. Taste starts with sweeter peaches and turns to sourer drier territory quickly. Finish is lightly bitter. Peach skins. Light mouthfeel. Very smooth and nice for the abv. Very happy to try this one. Big thank you to westcstbrlvr. This is another excellent beer from logsdon.

Bottle #P2563 / Best by Dec-2017

750mL poured into stemless wine glass.

Loads of peach upfront that wasn't overbearing. Followed by the fruity farmhouse, yeasty flavors that brought out a mild acidity and low sourness. As classified as a wild ale, I expected more tartness but this level was all good. The oak added a nice depth of tannic mellowness. The oak may also have to do with the hints of vanilla detected. Very impressive.

EDIT: Beer was previously classified as a wild ale before it was corrected.

Bottle #5513 / Best by Jan-2019

750mL poured into Lost Abbey Teku on 7-Mar-14

Less peachy and more saison apple-tartness than I remember, but still very enjoyable. Dangerously drinkable at 10% ABV. My wife really liked it. One of the best farmhouse ales, at least Top 3, that I ever enjoyed.

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.

Poured a hazy orange gold with two fingers of bright white head. Aroma of peach, pepper, hay, oak, and pear. Not too much lacing after the head dies down.

Moderate-to-high carbonation and a full, thick mouthfeel. Creamy and just a bit slick from the alcohol, which is otherwise almost undetectable.

Not as sweet as I suspected, with mild peach, oaky vanilla, apple and pear, a trace of funk, and peppery spice. Finishes very dry and keeps you coming back for more.

It was hard to drink this one slowly. Amazing balance, totally delicious. Doesn't supersede the base beer for me, but I love how they integrated the peach. Not at all overdone.

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.

A-Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a fluffy white head.

S- Peaches, oak and brett non-surprisingly dominate here. Some sweet bready malts round out the nose.

T- A serious upgrade over their regular seizoen-bretta. The peach is fresh with the oak adding more layers of flavor. Drying oak and brett play together very well. The tannins of the wood combined with the fruit replicate the sense of sucking on a peach pit. Subtle notes of vanilla add as a great natural pairing with the fruit.

M- Smooth and creamy. Drying with a lingering tart/sweetness and light bready malt. I cannot believe that this beer is 10%! Dangerous at the rate im drinking this.

O- Highly recommended. Im curious to see how this one ages. Its so good though that im afraid my last bottle will be gone too soon to find out!

Poured from bottle into a Deschutes tulip. Batch #2.
A: murky orange with a solid three finger head. I expected this not to be clear, but it's incredibly hazy. Not chunky thank goodness, but still nothing amazing to look at.
S: peaches and funk. Bretty goodness with a solid peach backbone and some hint of crisp acidity. Smells delicious!
T: peaches right up front. Surprisingly not as over the top as I was expecting. Almost balanced with the mild acidity and Brett character. Seems like the Brett is playing into the fruit flavors, with it's funky notes playing a supporting role. Very, very nice.
M: just perfect. It's a light bodied brew, but the perfect level of carbonation and the silkiness and richness of flavor provide a mouth filling experience.
O: awesome. I was expecting this to be a bit of a letdown. So talked up, I generally assume that it can't actually be THAT good. This one lived up to it's reputation. I would put this above any other Saison I've had. And that is how I would characterize it after drinking it. Reads as a beautiful Saison with fruit. The Brett is apparent, but if you put this next to their other brews, the comparison would be obvious I think. Interested to see how this ages as the fruit fades and the Brett takes a funkier and stronger role.

Poured a murky gloden orange in color with pale yellow highlights a half finger of bubbly head that left good wisps of lacing sticking to the glass. Good funky bretty character and peach fruit were noticeable upfron on the nose with hints of spice, herbs and wood oak with nice tarf qualities. The peach fruit was more apparent on the palate with good bretty barnyard funk, slight spice, hints of citrus zest alongside great oaky accents and a touch of apple pear flavor. The brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a oaky, fruity, bretty funky, slight spice and tar finish. These dudes really now how to funk it up!
