750ml bottle thanks to black13 for the hook up. Split 4 ways and poured into a FFF Teku. I believe this one is from last year's batch with a little over a year on it.
A- Pours a fairly hazy red with about a finger's worth of white foamy head that has about average retention, decent carbonation. I noticed that the first pour of this was a fairly bright red color however consecutive pours got progressively murkier with more of a reddish murk brown color.
S- Cherries with a light brett funk to it and light sweet malts, well balanced between the fruity cherries and the light funk without either overpowering too much, decently aromatic.
T- Lightly sweet cherries with a hint of brett and a bit of funk, about average malt presence. Nice balance between the fruit and funk without either of them really coming out too much. Fairly flavorful, but not the best kriek I've tasted.
M- Medium bodied, very easy drinking, lightly spritzy with a bit too much carbonation but otherwise a nice feel.
O- This was a nice kriek that I definitely enjoyed drinking however I probably would say it's a little bit of a disappointment next to Peche n' Brett and Seizoen Bretta. I thought it was nicely balanced with a nice subtle funk to it. It was a little bit too spritzy and the flavors could have been brought out a little bit more. I'd definitely recommend at least checking out this beer.

Acquired via trade
Cloudy cherry color with a moderately sized light pink head that leaves dots and an oily cling down the glass. Not a particularly attractive beer, but that's largely unimportant.
Big notes of juicy cherry, some toffee and caramel sweetness, a hint of lactic sourness, but not a lot, and just a hint of an earthy funk.
The flavor is very cherry-forward and quite sweet. It's not nearly as sour as I excepted, with only a mild hint of tartness. A mild funk component does add some complexity, but this is more similar to a fruit beer (like a New Glarus Belgian Red), than it is a kriek or a Flanders Red.
Medium body with low-moderate carbonation. Somewhat creamy. I would prefer more carbonation for the style.
This isn't a good example of a kriek or a Flanders Red, but it is still a tasty cherry beer. This may not live up to expectations, but taken completely on its own, it's still a very tasty beer.

Best buy date of 01/2018 which I assume is 5 years out, so this is an 01/2013 bottle. Poured into HF stemware.
Appearance- Deep red, slightly hazy with an off white head that hangs around for a bit.
Smell- Sweet and sour cherries and a mild funkiness. Doesn't smell too sour, there is a bit of a lactic sourness noticeable.
Taste- Light malt and Cherry sweetness up front, then a really mild sourness. Slightly funky. Much sweeter and not as sour as most krieks, but it's really nice in a unique way. Leaves a lingering cherry skin taste.
Mouthfeel- Light and refreshing, finishes dry. Really easy to drink as well, the fact that it isn't too sour really helps the drinkability.
Overall- Really nice offering from Logsdon. Definitely a unique kriek/Flanders, looking forward to trying their other stuff.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Best by 6/2017. Bottle number C334. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Reddish amber. Big off white head with great retention.
Smell - Saison aromas with a touch of cherry. Very light. Peppery.
Taste - Much more cherry. Overwhelms everything else that's there. Dry. Maybe some oak. Not much like a Flanders Red at all.
Mouthfeel - Very light. Easy to drink. Dry. No flavor in the aftertaste at all.
Overall - Not sour. Not terribly interesting, either. Cherry and not much else.

The color was a murky raspberry red with a building and alive head of quickly popping bubbles.
The scent is slightly simple but absolutely luscious. Sweet cherries and raspberries explode into the nose with a bit of sour and tart.
The flavor is a bit dry with a red fruity champagne like taste. Pomegranate, cherries, and raspberries are all evident.
The feel is almost expansive in the mouth as the carbonation seems to grow.
This is very good, very light and has the effervescence of champagne.

4.01/5 rDev +2.6%
Appearance Pours a hazy amber-brown, with over a finger of thick, pale khaki head.
Smell. Sweet and tart pie cherries, a little funky brett and old wood and just a little light malt.
Taste. Medium-light sourness and light tart cherry, a bit of dry brett and wood, a little sweet malt, and just a small amount of saison yeast.
Mouthfeel. Below medium body with , fairly full and fine carbonation.
Overall. A nice beer that's kind of a combination saison/kriek/flanders red with brett! What's not to like? I'll hang on to one for a while and see what happens.

3.8/5 rDev -2.8%
Bottle, best by date of 06/2017, poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours slightly hazy mahogany with some darker shades of red with two fingers of tan color loose foam. Head dissipates after a few minutes with minimal lacing to an even film and a ring of foam. Plenty of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass.
Good amount of cherries in the aroma, sweet and lightly tart, a bit of almond or cherry pit, light balsamic vinegar, brown sugar.
Taking a sip, the flavor isn't as good as the aroma. Very light cherry taste, along with a mostly mineral and lightly grassy flavor, minimal vinegar. Dry finish without much of an aftertaste.
Light body and highly carbonated, lightly prickly on the tongue. A little disappointed with the taste of this one.

Pours a very murky mahogany with a medium sized pinkish head. A bit of lacing down the glass.
Lots of funky cherry in the aroma. Just a touch of sourness and some caramel/toffee.
Lots of cherry flavor, but not as much as I'd expect given the amounts used. Not overly sour, just tart with a massive brett presence. Very musty and funky with a slight sweet cherry coming through on the finish.
Medium body and carbonation. Would prefer a bit more to make the cherry sourness pop a bit more.
Very interesting beer as the brett and cherry fight for control. I would have preferred a touch less brett since it got a bit overpowering as it warmed, but a unique experience nonetheless.
