Hazy yeasty gold pour. Very cloudy. Aroma of yeast, banana, hay and lemon. Flavor is a boatload of yeast, with barnyard, spicy and sweet. ClarkVV (7294) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 22, 2015

Huge amounts of carbonation, though it didn’t gush, so that’s a big plus. Rocky white head atop a heavily carbonated copper-brass body showing good clarity.
Lemon-lime-like acidity in the nose is joined by vanilla, honey and perhaps a faint bit of lemongrass or chili. It’s rather punchy (by punchy I mean tangy and rather crude; full of strong esters) just like it’s friend sezoen brett. No alcohol or flaw.
In the flavor, it’s the same, lemon sponge cake, honey, cookies and vanilla; all sorts of malt flavors with big fruity esters and a fair amount of tartness from the brett. What I do like, however, are the spices. Maybe that’s just because I’ve never had a chili pepper brett beer before, but as much as I thought it would make this messy beer even messier, I actually think it helps counteract some of this fruitiness. Quite drinkable and I enjoyed it well enough, despite a lot of that being novelty. Highly carbonated, spritzy texture with a bit too much sweetness.
Tap. Hazy yellow pour with a nice white head. Spice, vinegar, peach, citrus. Refreshing. A bit of spice. Nice Oakes (19911) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle. Hazy blonde, bubbly head. Hazy, dusty, light brett, hint of szechuan. Slight tartness, lacto?, touch of brett, but not too strong. Biscuity pale malts and a light fruity character. jtclockwork (18160) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2015

Tap at the new location.
A: Cloudy gold body, huge foamy white head.
N: Huge black peppercorn, clove, esters, some green appple. Lemon rind, brett shows through clearly; peach rounds this one out.
T: Tart, spicy, and sweet.
M: Light body, foamy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Cool concept with a good fruitiness, but I prefer the other renditions. GenDV138 (8153) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 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 (8895) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2015
