750 mL bottle. Slow gusher of a bottle. Smells of citrus, herbs, doughy sweet maltiness. Tastes lightly tart with some lemon sourness. Lots of sweetness behind. Strong yeast flavor. Really highly carbonated. Kinda meh.

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.
