Seizoen Bretta – Logsdon Farmhouse Ales

From Hood River Oregon’s Logsdon Farmhouse Ales comes their “Seizoen Bretta” a Saison (seizoen) with the wild Brettanomyces yeast added.  True to the breweries name these beers are brewed on a small farm.  The Saison pours an orange colour with a nice tall white head.  The aroma of the brew is composed of Brettanomyces yeast, fruit, grains, pepper but mostly the Brett.  The flavour of the beer consists of Brettanomyces yeast, sourness, sweet, sugar, grains and some peppery spice.  This description is not doing it justice.  I just do not know how to describe this any better!  The alcohol content of the beer is 8% but there is no trace of it in the flavour.  This just might be my current favourite beer coming out of the United States.

Commercial Description:  Special Brettanomyces yeast provides added dryness and crisp complexity to the Seizoen Bretta.  Bottle conditioned with pear juice for a natural carbonation.

Food Pairing as per Brewery:  Oregon Black Cod, Grilled ramp-potato risotto Inlet mussels and Sweet pea broth
