Split with Goblinmunkey7

Consumed 2/18/14

Appearance: Deep amber, with some brown and dark red hues - hazy and a bit cloudy - pours with a dense, creamy, beige head - keeps a solid cap - leaves some nice streaks of lacing

Smell: Some nice funk and dark fruits - nice level of tart and yeasty funk - not particularly pungent or wild, but it works - some caramel and amber malts - dark fruits, dark berry, berry skin - some light vinegar in the background

Taste: Dark fruits and some tart funk - caramel and amber malts, with a low level of sweetness, mostly dry - some nice yeast, with some wet funk and tartness, lightly lactic and acidic - dark fruits, cherry skins - light sourness, very low level of tart - slightly earthy

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, smooth, dry finish

Overall: Far West, man

Another nice beer from Logsdon's... surprise! As far as the style goes, this is not particularly tart or funky. It's good, but I think it could be more magical, given the yeast wizardry that this brewery usually demonstrates. (1,044 characters)

Bottle thanks to Shmeal!

A: Murky brown/reddish beer. Looks like muddy water. Huge foamy head at the beginning, that was nice.
S: Smells great, mostly oak and fruity sourness. Cherries.
T: Taste follows the nose. Very oaky, fruity and a pleasant lactic sourness. Plenty of sweetness and yeasty funkiness too, great tasting beer.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth woody, sour finish.
O: Extremely drinkable. I'd gladly drink it again. Great beer, I really enjoyed it but it's kinda lackluster when placed next to Seizoen Bretta and Peches (both of which are fantastic). (591 characters)

Had on tap at Brouwers during Big Wood. Review from notes.

A: Pours a pretty red/brown color with a small off-white head with great head retention and sheets of lacing down the sides.

S: Not much going on in the aroma, a little bit of tart fruit and must, but surprisingly faint.

T: Sour cherry, raspberry, and strawberry with a nice sourness on the back end. Slightly vinegary and bready.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, slightly dry.

O: It was decent, but having seen the price for this one in bottle, I would pass. (539 characters)

750ml bottle, split

appearance: lovely label as usual - served in my hopleaf tulip, dirty garnet body, nice ring of beige head and a nice lace.

smell: ouch - not good, actually bad. musty yeast, some tart fruit, off bready notes

taste: some tart/sweet cherry, light vinegar, bready, earthy yeast, light oak. This was a pretty big miss I think for Logsdon - their saisons are so great - what the hell happened here? Improves significantly as it warms, but still only a light tartness and a slightly metallic tangy finish

mouthfeel: tart, dry, musty earthy finish

overall: meh. wish I hadn't shelled out the cash for two of these (633 characters)

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle FWV954, best by 08/2015.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown with an ample khaki head. Wisps on the surface and a chunky collar. Murky pond water consistency.

Smell - Exceptionally malty. Nutty malts. Caramel. Lightly acidic. Faint dark fruit aroma too.

Taste - Much better acidity here. Lactic sourness, grainy malts. Nutty and light chocolate malt flavors. Clean grainy finish.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Dry and pleasantly tart.

Overall - Surprisingly good. I haven't been impressed by Logsdon's "sour" offerings, but this doesn't try to do too much. (600 characters)
