COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic red ale is brewed in traditional West Flanders style. A combination of light, crystal, and dark barley malt, wheat, and oats are brewed with local whole-cone hops and a variety of select yeast and lactic bacteria. We age our red ale in oak barrels for a period of time to develop complex richness, soft tannins, and fruity tart character. The aged beer is then blended with young beer to create the desired balance of malt sweetness with a dry finish.

Leighton (13032) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Colin. Pours cloudy amber with a frothy white head. Leathery and woody on the nose with some dry, tangy berries. Medium sweet flavor with hints of rind, bread, plastic, leather, berries. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly tangy finish, more leathery berries, wood. Good stuff.

Scopey (8055) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours dirty red amber with a small beige head. The nose is earth, lactic, yoghurt, red fruit, berry, cheesecake and dirt. The taste is crisp, tart, acidic, light lactic, lemon sherbet, grapefruit, yoghurt and Granny Smith Apple with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough. Perhaps a touch acidic. Ok though.

maxwelldeux (4035) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a very small head on there. Nose is sour, with dark fruit elements being quite forward with some hints of bread underneath. Taste is very dry and sour, yet drinks quite light. Clean smooth finish.

jrob21 (2772) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2015
HMOG 2015. A little light and delicate across the board. Some light fruit and earthiness. A smoother body with the malt profile. Light tartness and more wild yeast than added acidity.

Westmeister (1954) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2015
HMOG 2015. This one popped up right at the end. I got a little more subtle sour and barrel than expected from the style. Most thought that was appreciated. It certainly was softer, red wine, light oak, red fruit, delicate.

beernbourbon (1357) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Pour is hazy reddish brown with a medium, fluffy white head. Aroma and flavor are earthy and bretty with light berry notes and some woody notes. Fairly light over all. A touch of acidity with some red wine flavors too. Easy to drink.

Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Light hazy burgundy pour with a tiny head. Leather, balsamic vinegar, some light acid, red berries and some vanilla. Darn tasty!

czar (5018) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
bottle shared by john_beer, thanks bro! pours hazy very light brown, orange tint, with a small off-white cap showing minimal retention and lacing. juicy caramel, raspberries, grapes and pepper - pinot noir-feeling, honeyed golden candi, light acidity - some complexity and gently acetic notes - dark plum vinegar. lively carbonation, light body - pretty thin for style and abv; gently tart and woodsy-spicy finish. logsdon’s signature seems a bit lost in this american interpretation. but all in all it is tasty and still nicely executed.
