Product Feature:
Logsdon's Krieke Vier

Logsdon isn't a brewery known for doing a ton of big, flashy releases. That said, they've released several beers over the years that have organically developed a deserved cult following, from their early sour ales and wild experiments like Far West Vlaming and The Conversion, to fruit-laden specialties like Cerasus, Peche 'n' Brett, and their newest fruit sour release, Deep River Blues.

We're confident the next Logsdon beer to earn cult classic status is the brilliant Krieke Vier. It's is a powerful exploration of what can be done with barrels, cherries, Lactobacillus, Brettanomyces, and Belgian yeast strains. The beer starts life as a Belgian quadrupel, fermented with eight different yeast and bacteria strains. It's then aged on cherries for four months in used bourbon barrels. The result is a bold, deeply complex sour ale with loads of character. Expect lush aromas of fresh cherry, charred oak, plum, and vanilla. 

4.2/5 on Untappd!
