3.5/5  rDev -8.6%

A - Murky brown, near white tan head, small. Leaves fast. Some small bubbled cling lace.

S - Funky, a little sour, wildish.

T - Malty, still a little wild, slightly sour.

M - Light body, good body, fine balance.

D - Fun to try but not one of my favorites.

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.

A: Initially a wonderful head, fizzes out a bit, but stays well carbed, and bright. Beautiful rusty red color, a tiny bit cloudy from bottle fermentation.

S: Has a hint of pear, with the musty grape smell of a Flemish sour. Some oak, with dark red fruit, like cherry and even a touch of sweet strawberry.

T: More of the same. Def a nice, subtle oaky-ness, but not vanilla. Slight tartness, like that of grape must or a deep tannin'd wine. Lots of tart cherry. Maybe red apple skin.

M: Light-to-medium body. Soft mouthfeel, with excellent bottle fermentation carbonation.

O: An excellently crafted beer. The sourness is more soft than its inspiration Flemish Red from, say, Rodenbach. No flavor was overwhelming. The sour character and the malt bill balanced each other almost perfectly. This beer is crafted and bottled in a very traditional way, and it is evident in the product. I also appreciate the American farmhouse ruggedness it has, over the more Belgian sophistication of a traditional, top-notch Flemish red from Europe. I'd say it's the best American attempt at a Flemish red I've ever had.

Appearance: super murky brown, totally opaque. Two and a half heads of a yellowish white head.
Smell: tons of tart cherries, malt, raspberry
Taste: cherries, overripe apples (in a good way), biscuity malts, cranberry juice, an interesting balance of tart and sour, with tart taking over at the end. Lots of effervescent carbonation clears the palate a bit too quickly. Finishes dry. As it warms up the cherry fades somewhat, replaced by some apricot notes.
Mouthfeel: On the lighter side of medium but with the carbonation its hard to tell.
Overall: A good sour but by no means amazing. None of the flavors really shone and it ended up being less complex than I would've wanted.
