3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle brought over by Todd, I strangely havent had this until now. Murky tangerine in color, with a fingers worth of fluffy white head. Head dissipates slowly, leaving a moderate amount of lace. Nose opens up with beautiful bright melon notes, some pepper, saison yeast, and clove. Flavor is comprised of clove on the front end, some dry saison yeast in the middle, and pepper and earth on the finish. Light mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, dry, and a moderate finish. Another nice beer from Logsdon, I cant get over how nice the melon character is in the nose.

Bottle. Wonderful cloudy orange with rocky white cap. Aroma of yeast, barnyard, white pepper. Taste is similar. High carbonation but just great to drink.

Pours a rich golden straw color with a lively fizzy foam... The nose has great earthy rustic barnyard notes mixed with citrus, pepper and yeasty spice. The palate is everything I want in a saison... straw earthy yeast backbone with touches of honey, citrus, barnyard tang, and some lingering spice that is balanced beautifully of the floral sweetness in the finish !

Beautiful 14 karat body with a dense eggshell foam. Peppery spice, rising dough, toasted bread, yeast, citrus, caramel, and honey. Fresh, spongy, herbal, even floral...delicious!

My Bottom Line:
This engaging Saison shares soft herbal hops, lean honeyed malts and citrusy angles in a fluffy mouthfeel. What more could you ask for in the style?
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam decorates the misty blond.
-A pleasant level of rusticity is found within.
-This is not one to sip on, even if itís over the 7% mark. Iíd love to try a 5% version...
-These traditional Saisons are rare on this side of the pond. Good job, Logsdon!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from Belmont Station. Hazy orange-gold pour with a thick, creamy off-white head leaving heavy lace. Nose is quite damped due to the thick head Funk, caramel, peppery hops. Med body, fine CO2. Tasty, but a bit on the heavy and sweet side for my taste in farmhouse ales.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL from Bine&Vine. !!<<GUSHER WARNING>>!!Pours a full haze, glowing orange. Towering, massive, rocky, buttermilk head exploding out of the glass and frozen like an ice cream float. Infinite retention. Holy monkey. Nose is thick clover/orange blossom honey, mild Brett C, pineapple, fresh peach, fresh dough. Taste is orange creamsickle, cracker, fresh sourdough biscuit, orange juice, lemon peel. Palate is fluffy, aerated, silky, crackers. Very delicious, delicate, quenching with some density. Alcohol higher than wanted but not noticeable. I really like this brewery and continue to expect great things.

Bottle-purchased at Lone Hill Liquor in Gendora, CA June 2012-Pours hazy dark orange hue with a nice fluffy fizzy white head with great lacing!!! looks fantastic. nose is very funky, yeasty, light gymsock, estery citrus, lite metallic notes. smells awesome! I cant pinpoint everything here, but its really good. Flavors are very funky-slight yeasty, complex citrus notes, barnyard, cobwebs, wow this is fantastic! Body is slightly lite but has alot of complexity with moderate carbonation. long yeasty, funky, sweet over-ripe citrus on the finish. Lingering malt character as well. very funky and tart with some very lite sourness. Could be the most under-rated beer i have ever had! Im really glad i paid the $12 for this one!
