Logsdon Organic Farmhouse Ales is another new brewery in Hood River, Oregon. Their focus is to create authentic Belgian style Saisons with Organic ingredients. They, deservedly, have been garnering a lot of buzz and praise around Portland. Their Peche ‘n’ Brett won a Gold at the World Beer Cup. This brewery is quickly gaining a reputation for an insane level of authenticity, even going so far as to import a bunch of Sharbeekse cherry trees (Belgian sour cherries) which will eventually be used to create a Kreik. Needless to say, I was excited to try their main beer: Seizoen (using the Flemish spelling).
Appearance: Hazy orange with a solid white head.
Aroma: Fruity esters, spicy with touches of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, lemon and honey.
Taste: Malt balance with a mouthful of spice. Earthy, funky. Refreshing. The high carbonation level really scrubs the palette.
Overall Impression: This beer is highly carbonated, so watch out as you’re pouring it. This is a wonderful beer. It screams authentic farmhouse. I also liked the beeswax seal.
Availability: Western Oregon in better beer stores (rarely on draft).
