Logsdon Farmhouse Ales
A Note on This Beer
David Logsdon is the master of Wild and Farmhouse-style Ales— with GABF award-winning expertise, he’s cultivated yeast and Brett creations that have a national reputation. Logsdon Farmhouse Ales’ The Conversion 1 showcases his extensive knowledge—tart and funky, this elegant farmhouse ale has dry, fruity flavors similar to Sauvignon Blanc.
With 98 overall on RateBeer, The Conversion’s complex flavor profile entices Wild Ale fans with a fruity 7.7% ABV and a dry maltiness that amplifies the classic farmhouse flavors. Earthy, tart funk and peppery spice come from the combination of wild yeast and sour-producing lactobacillus that Logsdon allows to run completely wild, wrangling them in at just the right time to create a perfect balance of funk and fruit.
A cloudy, golden pour gives way to aromas of coriander and citrus zest before a slight bitterness rises from the subtle use of hops. Light fruity notes of green grape, pear, and juicy apple give it a refreshing body, while a bite of tart and a dry biscuit flavor from the malt bill appear as a crisp finish.
If you’ve never tried wild ales, Logsdon’s skilled use of wild yeast in The Conversion, along with the beer’s booziness, will be sure to convert you into an avid fan in no time.
