Logsdon Farmhouse Ales
A Note on This Beer
Dave Logsdon brews his series of Farmhouse Ales in an old red barn set against a backdrop of mountains, cherry trees and the easy flowing Hood River. This is where he creates his GABF gold-winning Seizoen Bretta. From the funk of house-grown yeasts and radiant flavors of locally sourced fruit to the time-earned mastery of unruly wild yeasts—Logsdon Brewing’s Seizoen Bretta is one of Oregon’s craft beer treasures.
Seizoen Bretta pours a slightly hazy reddish orange with a creamy, slow-fading white head. A cornucopia of vibrant fresh fruit and spice aromas jump out of the glass, featuring Brettanomyces notes of orange, lemon and green apple alongside added pear juice and classic Saison funk. If you can resist diving in immediately, see if you can distinguish the various wild yeast flavors. On the palate, Seizoen Bretta leads with apple, juicy pear and fresh nectarine before resolving into gentle spice and citrus.
Seizoen Bretta’s finish is dry, tart and lightly grainy. One of the many surprises about this Farmhouse Ale is its mouthfeel—Seizoen Bretta is remarkably silky and creamy, enhancing the flavors of Brettanomyces and fresh fruit. Its crisp fruit flavors will especially appeal to cider lovers as well as Saison fans.
This beer was meant to be shared - it will accompany great conversation among friends but don’t be surprised if its complex tapestry of flavors becomes the conversation.
