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 is simply a fantastic beer. Pours cloudy with a strong head. Citrus and hints of vanilla in the aroma. Tart on the tongue, but mellows quickly into a rich and complex array of flavors that include orange, vanilla cream, coriander, and smoke with a slightly bitter hoppy finish that lingers forever. I found the flavors come out more as the beer warms - I recommend serving halfway between chilled and room temperature.
