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.

Best by 04/2018 consumed 11/1/15. Huge fine white head recedes to a finger with good lacing. Very light floral nose. Not getting much oak or vanilla at this point. Overall flavor is light and refined.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a vibrant and hazy yellowish hue, there is almost an orange hue as well. Big and billowy white head sits on top and leaves behind some great lace.

S — Smells strongly of yeast, oak, lemon, brettanomyces, funk, grass, just great.

T — Slightly vinous, quite dry, nice funky notes balanced with some lemon and citrus tones.

M — Medium bodied, dry finish, easy drinking.

O — Very nicely done over all, wouldn't expect anything less from Logsdon.

Serving Type: Bottle (Best By 6/2019)
Consumed: 9.11.15

A: 4.25 After finally making it through the beeswax, the beer is a moderate gusher; pretty easy to get under control. Pours a somewhat hazy, but very pretty, reddish-gold with a huge off-white head.

S: 4.5 Aromas are very similar to the regular version. Moderate funk and hay mixing in with bright, tart aromas like green apples, lemon, and grass. Classic saison elements bring esters and honey, bridging the funk and tart aromas beautifully.

T: 4.75 Flavors follow the nose somewhat, but in an unexpected way. The start is classic saison, but moves quickly to funk and hay with fairly strong oak tannins. After the light dryness fades away, bright lemony tartness moves in with lots of green apple. The next wave of tannic dryness sets in bringing more nuanced funk flavors like aged cheese. The finish is long and dry and leaves a toasted bread flavor lingering.

M: 4.5 Despite the gushing, the carbonation is actually really nice and not over the top. The body is also really nice with the dryness helping out drinkability.

O: 4.75 I love the regular version of this beer; when it’s oak aged, it gets even better, adding even more complexity to an already great and subtle beer. This may not be up to Bernice level, but it’s very close and one of the best brett saisons I’ve had.
