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.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy dark amber with a modest beige head and a tart fruit aroma. There is a nice sour brown flavor with an oak finish. Subtle and tasty.

BillKismet (3394) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Amber-maroon with a decent head. Pleasant-aged Belgian amber body underpins this wonderfully complex and balanced beer. To the Belgian amber are added leather and sugar notes with a pleasant Gose-like saltiness sprinkled in. The body starts off by leaving the impression of a Gose meets Belgian amber on the palate. Beery flavor and complex Flanders brown notes. Metallic, tinny finish. Pretty good stuff on the whole, and one of the better Flemish-style beers Iíve encountered.

Ferris (5267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle - Sour cherry and plum notes. Cloudy maroon with a decent beige head. Tart and acidic up front, light cherry notes and sour malt. Very tart up front but a pretty clean crisp finish. Not to complex but decent.

Salmoniform (1079) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Poured from tap to glass. Hazy red hue with creamy tan head that settled to a ring. Aroma is lactic, white peppercorn, straw, cherry pits. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a tart following. Overall this is quite nice but is so dry that it is approaching thin.

Tap at Toronado.

Iíve always thought Logsdon to be overrated rather than underrated, but this one certainly reverses that impression. Dark red-brown pour into my 6 oz glass with an modest attractive head. Very gently tart, well balanced with a cherry sweetness and plenty of wood. None of the off flavors of the mass-market Flemish sours. Absolutely beautiful--and appeciated by my less-beer-geeky friends as well. This one turned out to be the standout of the night.

beertholomeus (961) - California, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Pours a burnt amber color with an off white head. Tart, fruit and funk aroma. Tart, fruit, funk, oak and malt flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Nice tart taste and a sweet fruit and tart finish with a slightly dry funk.

Warped_Silver (99) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours bright red with thin white foam. Aroma of sweet cherries, raspberries, and citrus. Clean, not funky. Taste is fruity -cherry, raspberry, rhubarb. Light, clean tartness. Well balanced and easy to drink. Mouthfeel in the thin side. Overall decent, easy drinking sour. One could drink the entire bottle alone and not have taste bud exhaustion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

adnielsen (9536) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle in Glenwood Springs hotel. Thanks to Steve_0. Pours a murky pinkish brown appearance with a light tan head. The aroma is twangy with some notes of CIB (olives and tomatoes), red grapes, and black cherries. Tart and veggie like. A little gooey. Herbal and piney. No thanks.

Steve_0 (2923) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle in Glenwood Springs with friends. Pour is hazy brown with a small tan head and decent lacing. Perfumey, somewhat caramelly, bready, sweet cherry, some cough syrup, tangy and floral aroma. Taste is tart cherries, tangy, some caramel, brown sugar, bready, and appley with a medium sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Kind of different.
