3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Last Drop.
Sparkling pour and almost prickly mouthfeel, lemon juice on dusty grass, some bubblegum, sweet dough -- solid if unexceptional American saison.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve liked the other two Logsdon brews I’ve tried so it was no surprise that I liked this one as well. Dusty and funky aroma, with notes of white grape, wood, peach, flowers, and some straw. Very nice. A booming white head pours out on top of a hazy orange-gold body. A bit fizzy in the mouth with lively carbonation. There’s a nice amount of musty farmhouse funk in the flavors that mixes with tropical fruit of mango and melon, yeast, straw. Some tang and alcohol creeps in towards the back end. Herbal hop undertones. Sweetness from the tropical fruit and soft malt character that’s noticeable throughout. About the only minor complaint I would have is that it did drink a little heavy. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow/beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with nice floral undertones is very enticing. Taste is a nice mix between some quite dry rustic malt with nice floral malt notes and some light fruity ester also discernable. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This beer was very well brewed and quite enjoyable but missed a little bit of character to make it into the major league of Saison.

Spicy lemon citrus and haylike notes in the nose. Opaque hazy body the colour of wet straw is topped by a decent white head that coats the sides of the glass. Doughy sweet malt character with citrus and spicy notes and moderate offsetting bitterness. Medium body with pleasantly strong effervescence. Enjoyed on tap at St. Augustine’s.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle with wax top, purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse back in March. Cloudy gold with nice head retention. Nose of yeast, spice, fruit, melon, grain and wheat. Flavor is the same as the aroma’s. Everything is approximately how it should but the flavor just feels muted. Could use something to make this brew stand out. Hops? Different spice? Something…
