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.

Pleasant aroma gives way to a nice tartness. Little young. Bottle time would help Leave your pretensions at the door.

Sigmund (5707) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2015
Small sample from bottle, at a 4th of July tasting. Gusher bottle, like every beer I’ve had from Logsdon. The remaining contents were nice though - a fine Flemish Red from Oregon, with aroma and flavour typical for the style. Might well sample again.

ClubGonzo (4628) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 30, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a dirty light nut brown body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is mild balsamic, tart berries, wood, lactic sourness and hints of grains, straw and hay. Taste is grains, nuts, lactic acid, tart berries, red fruits, raisins and hints of wood, hay and barnyard funk. Medium body and carbonation. A nice and smooth sour, surprisingly full-bodied and rather complex in its sugar composition. Very enjoyable.

MartinT (8491) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Earth-laden cherries are tossed around by prickly bubbles, as corn-like undercurrents gain momentum.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the murky red.
-The flavor profile is not as tight as it could be.
-The lean body helps drinkability, but the flavors not gelling doesn’t make me want to dive in anyway.
-My first disappointing creation from Logsdon. I’ll have to drink a Seizeon Bretta now to make up for it.

Bottle.
