Best by 09/2013

Gusher, huge gusher. The crown was on so tightly that it took a few tries to get it off, the whole time foam shot all over the counter. Fuck this is a mess. It's a nice opaque rusty orange with a solid quilt of fluffy cream and leaves gobby lace. Nose is slightly pithy with orange and must, there's also a spicy character I get in many fresh hop beers. The yeast dominates the nose here overall, however. Flavor is bitter, real bitter for the style. There is some sweetness, some lemon and a little metal. Full bodied with hi carb and a dry finish. Not my favorite from the brewery, but worth the taste.

On tap at O'Brien's Wet Hop fest. 10oz glass.

A: Slightly hazy yellow orange with an inch of rocky, craggy white froth. Retention is great and thick sheets of lacing are left behind.

S: Strong peppery and band-aid phenolics with much lemon and grassiness. Earth blends with a dash of leather. There's a touch of orange in there.

T: Earthy with some leather and coriander. Pervasive lemongrass presence with a firm pepper-like spiciness. Notes of grain blend with a lemony, grassy, earthy finish.

M: Lower medium in body with matching carbonation. Dry and sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: Solid. A bit heavy on the mouthfeel and a little low on the carbonation. I haven't had the regular Seizoen so I have no proper frame of reference, but inferior to the Bretta. You're better off just grabbing a few growlers of Pech 'n Brett and calling it an evening.

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.

A - Cloudy, wheaty hefeweizen-like body. Mixed bubble structure on a big, thick, white head. Excellent lace and retention.

S - Nice classic saison; farm yard, soft malt, lightly sour, pepper corn, plant stems.

T - Nice profile, but not much hop flavor. Soft white bread-like malt, spicy black pepper, cilantro, kiwi.

M - Could use a shade more carbonation. Medium frame.

O - Not a bad saison. Could use a bit more hop character for the "wet hop" billing.

Bottle pour for the 4th Annual LA Beer Week Beer Festival at Union Station in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and spices. Taste is much the same with some herbal hop flavors and a spice finish. There is a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

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

750mL (best by 9/2013) into a Hennepin glass. Pours a hazy glowing orange w/ a big fluffy head, nice web of lace.

Aroma is a combination of funky Belgian yeast and citrusy hops.

Taste if bright and lively. Pineapple, orange, farmhouse yeast, pale malt. Juicy and tropical with a nice bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is refreshing and light, dry.

Overall another tasty saison from Logsdon.
