4.14/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Tasted 12 June 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours clear from the top of the bottle, medium golden yellow, with fluffy, pillowy dense white head. Great retention and lacing. Bottom of the bottle gets cloudy as the yeast gets stirred up.

Smell is flowery, but flowery sweet. Big, very aromatic, tropical sweet flowers. Light and fruity. Grains in the background for support.

Taste is spicy, lightly sweet, with a little bit of hop bitterness in the back-end. Spiciness is really nice, tingly peppery spice that saison yeast often brings.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, with medium-high carbonation. Fluffy but dense at the same time.

Quite a tasty saison. Clean, spicy, floral, and straightfoward, yet very enjoyable.

750ml bottle, whole foods westlake

appearance: really nice pour - cloudy straw-orange body, huge fluffy white head, big fluffy retention

smell: really nice - big belgian yeast body, citrus, white pepper

taste: I really like Logsdon beers - the farmhouse brewery scene is something I really enjoy - the fresh hop version brings a nice grassy citrus variation to the seizoen. Citrus peel, lemon, pepper, huge belgian yeast profile.

mouthfeel: fluffy, coating, yeasty

overall: very solid

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Hazy golden yellow. Nice white head. Wispy surface and lacing inside the glass.

Smell - Grassy hops. Pale malts. A ton of yeast and it's a little musty.

Taste - Hops less intense, but nice. Very malty and less yeasty. Slightly bitter and a little more complexity to the malt profile.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation and just a touch too malty for me.

Overall - Herbal hop flavors build as it warms.

Glowing hazy orange, basically opaque. Billowing head of white foam, chunky lace all around the glass, long lasting sudsy surface coverage.

Aroma is zesty, tart fruit and light dry Brett, vague hop character, not well defined.

Tart and lemony, dry finish with lightly bitter notes of herbal botanicals in the aftertaste. Light presence of drying Brett yeast, restrained and not really funky. Refreshing and interesting, though at the premium price, i'm not sure it's a repeat buy for me. The regular Seizoen is just as good, the Fresh Hop version is only a subtle variation.

Slightly more crisp, grassy and citrusy than the standard Seizoen. Quite good.
