From 04/16/14 notes. Big thanks to Nugganooch for sending this out to me as an extra; thanks Dane! 750ml bottle poured into my Lost Abbey stemware.

a - Pours a deep reddish brown color with one inch of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sweet cherries, sour dark fruits, oak, spice, pepper, fruity malts, and light funk. Nice nose, more sweet than sour, but I like it.

t - Tastes of sweet cherries, sweet dark fruits, musty, earthy notes, oak, spice, sour cherries and dark fruits, light funk, and light floral notes. Little musty and a little less sour than the nose, sweet again.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink overall.

o - Overall a nice flanders/kriek style beer. More sweet than sour but lots of cherries, which I love. Worth checking out but not really a big sour.

750 ml bottle C 5785. Best before 08/2018. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a brownish ruby red color with about a finger of an off white head with a hint or red. Head dissipates almost instantly with no sort of retention or lacing. Body is red and relatively clear. Not much in the way of visible carbonation.

Smell: Sour cherries, vinegar, oak, some very light brett funk, and a slight brown bread character.

Taste: Low/medium tart sourness which carries through to the finish. Flavors of cherry juice, skin and cherry pits, oak and some darker bready malt comes through in the finish. A light brett funkiness starts to shine through more as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, very slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Medium levels of natural carbonation. Drinks like way less than 8.5%. Finishes dry.

Overall: I've been impressed with almost every Logsdon beer I've tried and this one is no exception. One of the most refreshing higher ABV beers I've had as well. Worth picking up if you can find it. I'd also be interested to see how this ages as well.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a murky red tinted garnet with three finger strawberry milk shake froth colored head that settles quickly.

Aroma is cherry pie filling, doughy yeast, strawberry yogurt, sugared beets, oak, and cherry tootsie roll. Very similar to belgian krieks. Can't knock the aroma for much.

The palate brings more cherry flavors, some caramel malts, farmhouse musk, mineralized water, and definite drying oak tannins. Beer is not as extravagant as belgian krieks but drinks nicely. Tartness is there but subdued. Sweet middle but dryness takes the reigns towards the end without completely putting a halt to the sweet malt.

Mouthfeel is light and seems a bit lighter than a Flanders red, which the base beer is supposed to be. But it goes with the flavor intensity.

Overall a pleasant beer by Logsdon. Complexity is not tremendous but the flavors that are there flow nicely. Drinks lighter than a Flanders red and not as sour as lambic krieks. I like the subdued characters as the drinkability increases. Makes for a nice summer drinker.

A: poured into a tulip to a deep reddish brown with a half finger of off white head that fades to a large collar around the edge of the glass
S: smells of sour cherries, funk, and oak
T: taste is tart and funky with some cherry and oak flavors. Not too sour and good cherry flavor. swallow is a bit more cherry flavor, another blast of tartness and some lingering oak and funk
M: medium in the mouth with good and slightly prickly carbonation. finish is just slightly drying
O: It has good flavors but it could be a little louder. Good balance though and the sour doesn't dominate at all.
