Seizoen Bretta – Logsdon Farmhouse Ales
Logsdon of Hood River, Oregon produces this saison, which pours a clear, bubbly platinum with a voluminous and persistent white head. It offers an inviting tropical nose of guava, banana, green grass, and candy, but the first swallow offers more spice and depth of flavor than indicated by the aroma. There are tropical notes present, but they’re tempered and given complexity by that rustic spice flavor. Farmhouse funk adds some tangy bite to the long and dusky finish, with pineapple also eventually entering the profile. Seizoen Bretta is impressive on the palette but neutral enough to pair with a variety of dishes, offering lots of balanced complexity inside of a refreshing, summer-y farmhouse brew.
