At Stout, the bar where I had this, this was labelled a "NW Sour Ale". I'm not sure exactly what that style implies. But this is a very mild sour, a bit tart, with noticeable Belgian yeast. It's good, and worth a try, if not particularly memorable. I'm not sure why this beer is archived by BA, as it's gotten several recent ratings.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.
from notes.

Hazy golden with a foamy, long lasting white head.

Fairly standard, malty, bready base with some funky, tart wild ale notes.

Medium+ body, low foamy carbonation.

A decent beer, but nowhere near the other high quality beers I've come to expect from Logsdon.
An unexciting, yet unoffensive flavor profile, and a decent mouthfeel, but I would have prefered more carbonation.

On-tap, reviewed from notes.

A: Served a very cloudy powdery lemon-drop yellow with a fuzzy bright white head that faded into a faint scummy collar.
S/T: Slight tropical notes on the nose. Brett is earthy on nose, stone fruits.Tart green apples, big notes of brett, lemon zest and slight stone fruits. Super earthy with mild spice notes. Green apples dominat but not overbearing. Tartness is not mouth puckering. Yeasty flavor with earthy brett. I get some mild peach and stone fruits in the finish, and a tart but not acidic punch in the aftertaste.
M: Very soft mouthfeel, soft and fluffy carbonation, and a medium-full body. Wet mouthfeel, drying finish.
O: A decent and drinkable beer but not their best nor their most exciting. Very mild overall.
