Logsdon "Seizoen Bretta"
Logsdon Farmhouse Ales - Hood River, Oregon USA
Saison (ABV 8%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 4.2/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 17/20

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a large (2-3 finger) white dense frothy head that receded slowly, down to a medium cap that lasted throughout thus creating excellent sticky sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a harsh grain malt and a musty Brett yeast with notes of citrus (lime and lemon peel), coriander and a strong fruity ester (apples and pears).

The taste was a bit grainy and a tad sweet with a nice strong fruity presence early on, and then became rather yeasty and a little tart with a crisp citrus taste along with a mildly bitter spiciness that became more pronounced towards the finish. The flavor lasted a decent time after the swallow, with a spicy tart yeast taste left to linger on the taste buds for a little while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation.

Overall this was a superb representation of the style. It possessed a nice crisp feel and a ton of flavor, now add a great drinkability and you have yourself one awesome brew. You can bet your sweet bottom that I am going to have another one of these...
