3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Whole Foods Honolulu. Hazy blonde. Aroma is fairly footy yeast character. Palate is similar, but with a light fruitiness and gentle pale malt character. Overall, I prefer the brett version, because it brings extra dimensions of complexity. The yeastiness here is a bit stale/old, wonder if the beer sat on it too long.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a waxed 750mL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is classic spicy saison yeast with some green hops and light bread malt. The flavor is a touch malty up front, moving to full kumquat and orange peel, spicy yeast, and then some light hops bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long spicy and orange peel finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml Bottle. Hazy dark golden straw colored pour topped with a generous layer of foam. Bright and floral aroma of honey, persimmon, pepper and orange rind. The taste is a blend of lemon, clove and coriander upfront along with some pineapple, peach and grassy hops toward the end. Plenty of carbonation and creaminess in the body with a final serving of ripe fruit and spice in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery.
A: Semi cloudy straw color with a very thin ring of white head.
N: Pine, straw, lemon rind, black peppercorn. Phenols and alcohol overtones. Touch of funk, though not on the level of bretta. Biscuit, cracker, and esters.
T: Slight sourness. Bitterness lends depth. Sweetness to give it flavor.
M: A bit dense comparatively, carbonation levels on the lower side.
O: Probably my least favorite of the regular Logsdons, and for good reason. (Aberrant is probably my least fave overall.) A good beer that just doesn’t live up to the complexity Brett can provide.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL Bottle. Peppery, white wine, orange and beeswax aroma. Zippy and friendly. On the palate, a unique Saison combination of bold orange-colored citrus, fresh peppercorns, and yellow birch. Well carbonated and effusive. The strain reminds me quite a bit of Dupont Avec; it’s a wonderful Saison profile with nice honey notes and good tangerine character. Really enjoyable. The malt depth is a little shy and I’m not detecting much hoppy presence, save for a juicy and brassy bitter finish. Warming.
