Leapbeer Reviews #321 & 322 Seizoen & Kili Wit by Logsdon Farmhouse Ales

So this next post is going to be a couple from a brewery I had been told to look out for when I was down on my Portland trip. Logsdon Farmhouse Ales makes some absolutely delicious beers. In fact, their Fresh Hop Seizoen was one of the top beers on my trip to Oregon. Sadly I couldn’t get in to see the brewery as they were busy at Great American Beer Fest in Colorado. While I was bummed out that I couldn’t come there to see them, I brought some of them back to try out. Today I’m going to feature two of their beers, the Kili Wit and the Seizoen. Logsdon Farmhouse Ales specializes in making organic beers, and they use natural pear juice to naturally carbonate them.

The Kili Wit smells very refreshing with sour hints. The taste is very crisp. Lots of wit characteristics to it, the fresh taste of a wheat beer, but the aftertaste leaves a bit of tartness from the pear juice instead of it being really clean. It is the perfect combination of a summer wit beer style and a cider. Dry and delicious.

Our Kili Wit is a traditionally brewed white beer with refreshing flavors and creamy smoothness. This is a 100% certified organic beer brewed with local organic barley malt, wheat and oats along with whole cone Oregon hops and African spice. This beer is made with a portion of the proceeds going to the K2 Adventures Foundation that provides community service, medical and educational enrichment for African children. (via website)

With the Fresh Hop Seizoen being as amazing as it was, I had very high hopes for the normal version of this farmhouse ale. My hopes were not disappointed. This beer combines all the lovely peppery spice notes you expect from a Saison, and then infuses them with the tart ‘pear cider’ effect of using the natural fermentation of pear juice. I love this beer, and now thanks to Beerthirst, it is available in BC. If you have a chance to try their beers please do so.

Our unfiltered Seizoen, with its beeswax seal, is naturally fermented and carbonated with pear juice and select yeast strains, producing complex, fruity and spicy flavors balanced with whole hops and a soft malt character (via website)

Using the pear juice to carbonate the beers really adds a depth to the taste of these beers. It makes them a great starting off point to the world of sour beers as well. I still have a couple others from this brewery in my stash from the Portland trip that I am very looking forward to cracking into.

Thanks for Reading
