Thanks to nate321, who doesn’t appear to be around any more, for this long-stored bottle. 750ML of rustic-looking bottle split with my wife.
.
The pour begins before I do, as lava-like foam oozes out the top while the bottle is still upright; a careful pour is necessary to keep the beer within the confines of a 20 oz. glass. Very light red touches the border of orange (orange is the new Flemish red?). The nose is all crushed blackberry & sharp wood – more New Glarus than Vlaming, but nice.
.
Far West Vlaming - I Googled it & I’m still not sure what the hell a Vlaming is. Inside joke? Evoking vague European woods? Dutch for ‘Flaming’? Nice fruitiness up front – nothing as distinct as the blackberry in the nose, seems melangish – followed quickly by a slash of acidity, tons of sun-bleached wood. Musty red grape & gentle cherry emerge as the beer warms. Watered down a bit, which doesn’t actually impede the taste. This would be a great beer to drink with my feet up on the railing watching the smoker. All day.
.
A bit gentle & loving for my taste, & I can only imagine how my sour-head friends would rage & froth, spittle flying, at the lack of punch. Me? I like. Pretty good beer.

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).

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.

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

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.
