Logsdon Farmhouse Ales
Oregon, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our organic Oak Aged Bretta is made with our Seizoen Bretta that is aged for a period of time to develop the wood aged character in the beer. Oak Tannins, vanilla notes and subtle smoky spiciness soften and mellow this beer over time.

The aged unfiltered beer is refermented and carbonated in the bottle with select yeast strains to provide added dryness and complexity, then sealed with beeswax for additional aging. Store bottles upright in a cool dark place and enjoy for many years in a proper glass.

This was fantastic. Seriously fantastic.

Pours a hazy gold-amber in color. Aroma has a bit of a funky hay character on it with Brett dominating yet delicate. The flavor is funky Bretty-fruit, a barnyard of wet hay and crisp pears, white grape, peppercorns and orange blossoms. Clean, bright and incredible.

Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: A deep, bright orange, with a super fluffy and sticky two finger white head. Leaves quite a bit of lacing, and the head hung around for a decent amount of time. Some carbonation sticks to the glass.

Smell: Really nice burst of tropical fruits up front. Some lemon and mango. A nice brett funk comes in, along with hints of oaky vanilla. Some white pepper.

Taste: Wow. Takes the nose up a notch, with a distinct mango note throughout. Some lemon pith provides a clean tartness. A bretty funk and some white pepper. Great barrel character, and the finish mixes the mangos and an oaky vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Pretty juicy, yet juggles the tropical fruits of the taste with a very nice dryness on the finish. Exceptionally drinkable.

Overall: This was fantastic. As good or better than the Juicy enjoyed before this, and nearly as good as Flora b4. Well done Logsdon.

I have been on the fence about when the right time to open this bottle was. Today was the day.

Color was a little more brown than I expected from being a saison, but the bone-white head really contrasted nicely.

Aroma just explodes out of my wine glass. Prominent notes of pear, faint pineapple and oranges meld nicely with the funk from the Brett and time spent in the barrel. Perfect representation of a barrel-aged saison.

Flavor is next to perfect. Immediately it jumps right to the crisp carbonation and 'airy' mouthfeel. It could have been a little funkier, but I have no doubt that if I had sat on this for another year, it would have been just right. Dry characteristics of pear and apple skin, but with just enough sweetness from all the fruit notes that it was quite balanced.

I took this bottle to the face in no time. It's drinkability was that high.
