Bottle. Cloudy amber pour with huge foamy head that fades normally to a thick film and leaves great lacing. Huge spicy yeast aroma with some citrus, peach, bread dough, and flowers. Taste is very yeasty as well. Biscuit dough, lemon, peach, flowers, pepper, and light banana. Foamy carbonation but still very soft on the tongue. Interesting saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewfest. Golden with slight haze short fizzy head a little lace. Sweet citrusy pastry aroma with hints of spice. Medium sweet peach and tropical fruit with mild grassy peppery spicy finish. Medium body. Some fruity honey cloy. Very rustic but not necessarily better for it. Excellent flavor, but the rest leaves something to be desired to pull it together.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pain in the arse waxed 750 and served in tulip: Yep, as expected a very lively pour resulting in a huge fluffy head and outstanding lace. Lots of hayfield, biscuit, flowery hops, touch of lemon tart and faint yeast driven spices. This is very nice way to start the day. Exceeded expectations and glad I did not have this on tap in Denmark.

375ml bottle purchased from Lifesource Natural Grocers in Salem OR
Pours a clear sunflower oil yellow with a large thick and frothy pure white head.
Nice strong aromas..bread, fermented hay, earthy and some delcate flowers. Good.
Taste is similar with the addition of some pepper and spice.
Nice on the tongue..small bubbled carbonation leaves a creamy mouth feel.
Very nice and would be really excellent at the source!

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Yellow color with big white head. Aroma is fresh and citrusy. Taste is citrusy-fruity, doughy, peppery, but with a heavy booziness towards the end. Interesting, but damn that booziness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased and consumed in Hawaii whilst on vacation - very pleased to see several Logsdon offerings at the local wine store. Pour is pale, cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is lemony and fruity with a hint of funk. Flavor is super fruity with a light background acidity and a bubblegum finish. Fruit forward with spicy banana and green pear dominating. Very much in line with a Belgian ale. Well constructed but not my favorite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle poured into a schooner. This saison (seizoen) is funkier than George Clinton! Pours cloudy, rich gold with a creamy white head that leaves a blanket of lacing. Aromas of citrus, barnyard funk, nutty yeast, banana, bubblegum, sour candy, earth. This is a great old school saison, lightly hopped and more focused on the yeast and malt. Highly carbonated, the bubbles are lively in your mouth, but has a distinct sour flavor, almost Brett like in it’s funkiness. I really like the design of the label, and the beeswax sealed cap is nice, makes a nice gift. Definitely an ale for lovers of sour or old school farm ales. Has a somewhat creamy mouthfeel to balance the sour and funk. The 7.5% abv is well hidden. Pretty impressive saison from Oregon, would repeat.
