At Stout, the bar where I had this, this was labelled a "NW Sour Ale". I'm not sure exactly what that style implies. But this is a very mild sour, a bit tart, with noticeable Belgian yeast. It's good, and worth a try, if not particularly memorable. I'm not sure why this beer is archived by BA, as it's gotten several recent ratings.

Appearance: beer started gushing out the bottle after opening. Good thing I didn't lose too much of it. In a glass, it left a very delicate, white fluffy head. The beer presents an opaque light peach in color.

Smell: it reminds me of a gueuze. It has a funky, fruity and mildly tart aroma with notes of kiwi. Authentic may not be the right word to use, but I find it has an earthy and homemade quality to it.

Taste: mildly dry and tart. Notes of kiwi, some esters, barnyard character upfront and bready in the background. A very balanced beer that allows the classic flavors of a farmhouse ale and the tartness to shine through equally. It does have a light sour component to it that makes it a great intro to sours.

Mouthfeel: has a nice crisp bite and very refreshing. Somewhere between a light to medium bodied beer.

Overall: an excellent beer that I'm so glad to try. Very balanced and easy beer to drink.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.
from notes.

Hazy golden with a foamy, long lasting white head.

Fairly standard, malty, bready base with some funky, tart wild ale notes.

Medium+ body, low foamy carbonation.

A decent beer, but nowhere near the other high quality beers I've come to expect from Logsdon.
An unexciting, yet unoffensive flavor profile, and a decent mouthfeel, but I would have prefered more carbonation.

750mL (best by March 2021) into a tulip. Pours a clear golden color w/ a nice soft white head sustained by lively carbonation.

Aroma is tart, crisp and bright. Lemon zest, green apple.

Taste follows nose. Mouthwateringly sour, gently bready. Slightest hint of crushed aspirin, for which I have to dock it 0.25.

Mouthfeel is likewise bright, drinkable, refreshing. Perfect summer beer.

Overall another really nice offering from Logsdon. Getting so spoiled on so many great, easy to get Northwest beers.

Hard to pass up a saison from Logsdon that I haven't had. Tasted 10 June 2016.

Pours cloudy straw yellow, clear from the top of the bottle. Two fingers of puffy white head, good retention, decent lacing.

Smell is stellar. A delightful blend of yeast, sour, and grains. Some fruity yeast notes, light stone fruit like peaches. Acidic tartness with lemon. A faint grainy sweetness and grassy aromas in the background. Fantastic.

Taste is really, really good, but a little less balanced than the smell. Plenty of citric sour up front, with a bit of bite behind it.

Feel is the low point, but not bad. A little thicker than I'd expect, almost chewy. Carbonation starts prickly but fades a little quicker than I'd like.

I'm really really enjoying this beer. Soured-up saisons are some of my favorites, and this one is up there with, well, not quite the best, but close. Well done, Logsdon.
