3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
murky chestnut, thin white ring head. Dry nose is dusty, honey and toast with light brown sugar and sweetened cherry lactic acid. Flavor is thin, lime becomes tea mid before biting sourness finishes. Thin, odd mixture throughout, light buteric bile with warmth.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle gushed bad, then finally pours a muddy brown with some frothy, white head. Nose is a little muddled, some vanilla, burnt caramel, a little vegetal, some cherry. Flavor is also muddled, malt, light tartness, medicinal, some dried cherry. Medium bodied, lightly tart finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
<<<GUSHER WARNING>>> 750mL b1 thanks to a generous BA. Exploding out of the bottle hard, complete mud pour, beige overcarbonated head erupting, weak retention. Looks not good. Nose is convoluted, nothing very bright or forward. Eventually some vanilla and creme brulee comes forward with dark chocolate cocoa powder. Taste is just not doing it- soda water, vanilla, some tangy red wine. Unfortunate for a brewery that has extremely high standards.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brownish red. Very cloudy. Sort of a muddy look. Small off-white head that dissipates quickly. Not a very thick layer of foam to start, anyway. Lots of funky cherries in the aroma. Tends more toward fruit sweetness than Cerasus. The funk is a bit odd, sort of cheesy. Mild medicinal note. Some tannic woodiness. The taste is a nice tart cherry flavor, but itís a bit washed out and doesnít quite pack the punch that I was hoping to find. Itís not super sour, though I wouldnít call it sweet. The finish has more of that tannic oak flavor. Mouthfeel is nice, though Iíd prefer it to be a bit creamier and less fizzy. So far, this is my least favorite Logsdon beer, but my expectations have grown so much with each beer that itís probably not a terribly fair scale. Still, I probably wonít be picking up any more bottles of this beer. On the other hand, Iíd be happy to get a glass at a bar.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Cloudy brown ale with an off white head. Caramel malt aromas. Not overly tart and somewhat sweet with red apple and caramel malt highlights. Good balance and carbonation. Well done..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL from Beermongers.
A: Cloudy red with a topographical rusted head. No legs to speak of.
N: Yeast laden cherries. Very oaky. Black peppercorn, and intense florals such as chamomile. Some funky bleu cheese and new leather.
T: Nice sourness level. Hints of cherry and oak. Lemon tartness. Leather and leaves. Some sulphuric acid/acetone. Snappy, but not complex.
M: Well carbonated and alcohol is hidden. Saison character which I donít think is a great thing in a Flanders style ale.
O: A solid beer and worth trying. Needs additional complexity to shine, but I will say it was better than its older brother Cerasus which actually has the cherries in it.
