COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic farmhouse ale is brewed in small batches on a traditional farm brewery as it has historically been made for hundreds of years. This unfiltered bottle of seizoen, with its beeswax seal, is naturally refermented and carbonated with select yeast strains, producing complex fruity and spicy flavors balanced with hops and a soft malt character.

FlacoAlto (3849) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2013

Quite the gusher, definitely lost an ounce a two before I could start to pour over the sink. A careful pour produces a three finger thick, plus an additional finger above the rim of my Teku glass, pale tan colored head that is quite rocky and textured. The beer is a pale, just amber color that shows a deeply hazed, slightly chunky, straw / pale-orange tinged gold hue when held up to the light. The nose is quite vibrant, floral, lightly herbal, citrusy, earthy grain, wildflower spice notes, and weedy / grass notes all mix together. As the beer warms up a hay like, just thrushed wheat, and pale malt character becomes a bit more noticeable; even a touch of saltine crackers and perhaps some rustic white bread notes.

Dry, but quite grain driven, floral, herbal, with a lingering bitterness, there is a touch of citrus here, that gets more expressive with subsequent sips. The beer is quite light bodied, but is not in any way watery, as there is just enough viscosity to provide some texture. Spicy, peppery, wild flower like, earthy, hints of cumin, slightly musty, lingering sage, and bitter citrus zest are all quite noticeable here. Between the hop character and the yeast notes, there is quite a bit of fruit character in this beer, but it is quite well balanced out by lots of grassy, herbal, weedy, and peppery spiciness in the finish.

My second pour of this is so much murkier and middy in appearance; the flavor isn’t too much different, but it definitely is a bit yeasty and the citrusy hop character seems to be muted a bit. This is definitely preferable prior to getting so murky, though it isn’t bad after this, but certainly has a yeast bite to it. If I could get a bottle that wasn’t so heavily sedimented and was clear, I bet this beer would be just about singing; I’ll definitely have to keep a look out for another bottle of this. In the end, I really like how complex this beer is, with the murkiness it can be a touch discordant, but in the end it does work.

yourilevesque (388) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
Arômes de brettanomyces, de levures saison, d’agrumes telles le citron et l’orange. La bière est orangée, parfaitement trouble et munie d’une tête épaisse et éternelle. En bouche la bière est pétillante et très fidèle au style farmhouse. Un houblon soutenu amalgamé à cette levure sauvagine et fraiche. Pétillante, rafraîchissante, ronde (peut-être un peu trop à mon goût), on sent le potentiel alcoolique et le 7,5% d’alcool du malt impliqué.

Aroma of fruits, citrus, orange, peppery notes, spicy Saison yeast, floral notes, apricot, malt. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Nicely full and complex with a good overall balance. Delicious Saison.

Sigmund (5723) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2015
Small sample from bottle, at a 4th of July tasting. Gusher bottle, like every beer I’ve had from Logsdon. The remaining contents were nice though - a decent saison, with mild spicy notes in both aroma and flavour. Might well sample again.

Vells (1000) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 11, 2015
Really nice saison, tho I couldnt get all the qualities right, as I was quite wasted X) Feels super fresh and awesomely well balanced fruitiness, light yeast presence, bit spicy, light grassy. Nothing overwhelming about this one, just feels RIGHT, except the price - bit too high.
