T: Tart, spicy, and sweet.
M: Light body, foamy carbonation, no alcohol.

Bottle at the DC Local Gathering on 8/1/2015. Murky yellow with off-white head. Aromas of herbs, funk, citrus. Tastes of funk, floral, citrus fruit and peel, lemon lime. Medium body with a dry finish. nimbleprop (8601) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2015
750ml bottle pours a murky gold with some foamy, white head. Nose has an interesting mix of pineapple and green peppercorn, candy, almost a bit briny too, lemon. Flavor has cool oyster brine with lemon, pineapple, peppercorn, white grape. Plenty to unpack. Fruity and spicy finish. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2015
750ml bottle from Binnys Plainfield (Plainfield, IL). Really excited to see Logsdon land in Chicago. Pours a well hazed almost murky amber gold hue. Darker overall with cakey creamy offwhite head. A large layer sits, remains, laces well throughout. Aromas are fruity and spicy, funky and grainy. Nice spice, touches of yeasty life meet cobwebs, horseblanket, jabs of estery fruit, tart citrus and apple. A faint waft of tropical intrigue, juicy pineapple with dust, straw and touches of creamy tart fruit. Nice stuff. Initial is lighter end of the fold with lively tart fruit, apple and pear meet citrus, pineapple juice is sweet/tart hybrid with touches of yogurt, earth, funk. Bready malts, flaked wheat, touches of fruity ester and spice intercede with a creamy sweet/tart pineapple play that really works for me. Mellow, tart, a bit funky and dry as we hit the backend, mellow spice, citrus and pineapple as we press on. Subtle straw, funk, horseblanket it more reeled in overall, allowing a more pineapple laden and fruit compliment to take flight and offer the lead here. A bit dry, bready, straw and funky on the finish, cobwebs and subtle spice trail out past the initial fruity and tart onslaught. A touch of girth at times but this one ends up quite crushable with good flow, flavors, and livveliness up front. A bit dry, funky at trail out. A lovely nose and flavor, solid pour and lacing/head for days. Lovely sessioner with a brett and fruity focus and some complexity overall. Perhaps a touch girthy still but I definitely dig this. radagast83 (8200) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2015
750ml bottle. Poured a very cloudy yellow-orange color with a small, wispy white head. Aroma was some light dusty notes, plenty of fruit, peach-orange notes? Funky, dusty notes. Pepper. Lemon. Very tasty.

Some citrus and a hint of peach. Light citrus and only a hint of pepper. Pours cloudy orange with great head and lacing. Light sweetness, some tang. Light and easy drinking while maintaining complexity. Bottle. Iphonephan (7086) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2015
From a 75 cl bottle shared at the RB DC tasting Aug 1, 2015. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Minty nose. Flavors of white pepper and caradamom. Crisp finish. Travlr (25558) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy to murky straw color, bright fluffy white head. Aroma of dusty and peppery haystacks and attic corners. Taste is funky lemons left in barnyards overnight. Delicious. Mep3222 (1599) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Mix of lactic and funky sour aroma. Lemon peel and citrus in the taste. More funky wet blanket sour than lactic. Lighter palate but still complex and balanced pretty nicely. Some spice in there too. Nice saison that is a bit more tart and funky than most.

>>> Another world-class quenching Saison from Logsdon that isn’t that much different from their usual line-up but still add a fun peppery twist.
+ The Logsdon yeast signature is predominant and easily recognizable and that’s for the best
+ The peppery presence is well dosed and add to the quenching character of the beer
+ Palate is also working toward giving this beer a nice quenching character with a medium body, good carbonation and dry finish
○ The "brett" features though definitely noticeable are still in the backseat. It will be interesting to see how it develops over the next few months.
Flavors: Saison yeast, pepper, leathery brettanomyces (mild), citrus, generic fruitiness, lemon
