4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a bright medium orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of sour fruit, wet hay, vinegar, sourdough bread, belgian yeast, and some grass. Taste is wet hay, vinegar, sour fruits, pepper, sourdough bread, and some light grassy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a sour, dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a excellent Saison that is definitely Bretty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beercraft. Hazy gold with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is an explosion of strawberry-banana smoothie, heavier on the banana oil candy note. Flavor gives an upfront ester sweetness with fruit salad notes that immediately transform into plasticky brett phenols before circling back to an unripe kiwi thing. Weird. Very bretty but I’m not sure I could identify this as a saison if I was ordering blind. Just a strange beer.

Bottle at home as I continue my weekend of Oregon brew. Pours hazy orange gold with big white head. Nose is Brett and apple juice. Tastes of tropical fruits, ripened pears, cheap apple juice, Brett, hay, peppery, and ginger. Semi sweet finish. Kind of odd after taste. Had much higher hopes for this one.

Glad to be one of SHERM1016’s friends on this tasting! Sample from a shared pour. Nose of fruit and spice....initial taste is a very sour / dry / almost puckering dryness...but so good.....sample was too small to get much past that...excellent.

Bottle split with a couple friends. After the bottle stops gushing it pours hazy gold with fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon, brett, hay, fruit. Medium body. Nice and fruity. Crisp and dry. Assertive carbonation

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Firkin Firkin. I’ve been waiting to try this one for a while. Slight cloudy gold pour. Aroma of butter/acid. Big bretta flavor & citric acid. Some farmhouse hay and sulfur. Not much else going on. Sharp acidic palate yet too thick of a palate at the same time/not dry enough. Hot mess.

Bottle from Todd. A couple years old. Thanks!
A: Cloudy yellow with a big puffy white head.
N: Lemon zest, oats, grain, brett, biscuit, chamomile.
T: Good grainy sweetness. Some hop bitterness in the background.
M: Medium body. Creamy.
O: A very nice saison. The brett has flourished here, and it makes me want to age a bottle. Kudos to Logsdon for a beer that stands up to time.

Sampled on tap. Really crisp saison with a thin white head and light brown appearance. Quality taste that goes down smooth. Big malty taste.

One of our favorite farmhouse beers. Pours a beautiful golden color with a white head. Smells of berries, herbs and bay leaf. Taste is very smooth and creamy, with some smokiness in the finished. Paired with an Asian style ceviche, much more citrus is brought out right in the front, and mellows out the smokiness. Had in the bottle.
