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.

ericdevin (770) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Draft at the Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours a medium reddish brown, little to no head. Aroma slight candi sugar, dried fruit, oak. Body medium tart, with a crisp and slightly sticky cherry finish. Digging this, one of a very few Logsdon beers I’ve not had.

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2014
750 ml bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, barnyard funk, apple and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of caramel, fruitiness and light funk with a crisp dry lightly tart finish.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle, shared at the lake. Very hazy ruby red with a soft pink head. Sour cherries with a bit if funk, light caramel malts, lighter body than expected but still very good.

devman171 (969) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2014
900th rating! Pours murky reddish brown. Aroma is light tart and vinegar with oak. Taste is similar with a medium tart and sweet candi with big oak. Very nice

ACHops (689) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2014
On tap @ Brouwer’s. Pours hazy pale ruddy with thick just off-white head that fades into nice lingering lacy head. Aroma is dry tart berry fruit, oaky light malt. Taste is similar: big oak, fruit, some light citrus, very restrained sweetness for the style. Clean and dry on the finish. Tartness is well-balanced and does not dominate. Slightly thin body, though common in this style. Excellent beer.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Pours a nice rusty sienna color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nice complexity in this beer. Soft woody compost, dried tart fruit, round rustic grain backbone. Nice sour cherry notes brighten up the murky woodsy forest flavors. Really well balanced with layers of deliciousness, dry finish !

mathieuc (1284) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a heavily hazed brown/red with a medium offwhite head that leaves good lacing. Aroma contains some sharp cheesy notes and an inconsiderate amount of oak. Taste is tart but not too much with a lot of oak-induced/tannic dryness. Clean lactic acidity. Flavors of, well, oak and some red fruits I guess. Oak is the main feature in this one, no doubt about it. Body is medium, carbonation medium as well. Mouthfeel is slightly vinous but mostly like licking a barrel stave I guess. Overall an enjoyable libation, I just wish it was a little more fruity and acidic.

andrewje41 (440) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a nice dark red with a fizzy head. A lot of oak and sour fruit aroma. A variety of sour fruit flavor including cherry and cranberry. Intense sour up front, with a good, smoother sweet finish. Love my sours and this one did not disappoint.

cloudy red brown color. Oaky aroma. Nice sourness but very well balanced with the oak. Awesome display of the style
