Had this on tap at Little Bear in downtown Los Angeles. I saw a Logsdon beer I've never heard of and no record of it on BA, so I ordered it. The beer was served in a tulip style glass. Appearance is a golden, hazy yellow with a thick, foamy head. I didn't take any notes as this was unexpected. The smell was typical of a tripel: nice yeasty character with some clove and banana. Taste is exceptional. This is one of the more remarkable tripels I've had. Very easy to drink. Mouthfeel is nice and full.

Overall, this is an outstanding beer. Logsdon really knocked this one out of the park (as they often do with their beers). I hope they bottle this one. Cheers! (663 characters)

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Big fluffy and light white head. Thick and full of much soapy retention on the pour and staying still. Body color is full of huge carbonation, with much fine edge. Thin rails, and very plentiful, streaks of lined thin bubbles rise on the sides, with a big roaring column of carbonation in the middle. The large puck head is full and clumping, if every so soap like, but hangs like a thick sheet. The body color sits at a simple dull lemon, to brown amber, if a little uninspiring. But the head and aggressiveness make an impressive appearance.

Aroma is earthy. Damp, and super musty and truly barnyard. Lots of manure like aromas with a whiff of orange and apricot to peach fruit quality. Big funky and earthy notes explode on this beer, with a spicy aroma. Slightly off putting probably to some, but captures a farmhouse aroma wonderfully.

Palate comes with a first blast of large and juiced fruit. Mid palate fills with tropical to orange to mushy mango body and stone fruit like qualities. Hinted farmhouse character takes a back seat to a big fruit forward, and even spicier finish of clove qualities, and perhaps some mild hop bitterness. Juicy body. Fruit forward goes all over. Peaches. Oranges. Apricots, and a full controlled light spiced clove finish, even giving to mint.

I was curious if this would come out more like a saison but it really doesn't. Tripel in heart, with a saison aroma that is left behind to enjoy what a true Belgian tripel can be. Very well done. (1,545 characters)

On tap at The Glendale Tap in Glendale, CA.

Pours a murky honey orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, acidic, earth, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt, apple skin, apple juice, earth, and slight funk flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity and earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is interesting, tasty, and easy to drink.

Serving type: on tap. (651 characters)

Large bottle, "Best before 09/2016"

Lighter amber, hazed with a heavily clouded, yeast filled final pour .Lifts a medium and long lasting head, leaves world class ringed and fine lacing.

Dull nose of yeast, muted hops.

Fruity, yeasty, hoppy...super easy drinking and flavorful American take on the classic style. Fresh hops, sweet n fruity, Belgian yeasty notes, simply delicious stuff. More world class brew from Logsdon (426 characters)

the beer has faint orange on the nose with light malt biscuit and spicy fruit..
It pours gold with a slight haze under a 2” fluffy off-white foam cap.
The beer attacks the palate with orange, light malt, very faint caramel, a hint of baguette, more orange with an assertive yet pleasant bitterness on the light, dry finish.
This very effervescent beer has a light and refreshing body. (387 characters)

Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is peach and banana.
The taste starts with soft bitter, fruity, moderate bitterness in the middle and finishes with a slight sugar sweetness.
The texture is soft with some light fizzy.
Quite enjoyable. (267 characters)

750ml bottle poured into a teku glass, best by May 2013

A- pours a hazy bright golden color with a big creamy white head that retains long after the pour, leaving tons of lacing behind

S- phenolic and spicy up front with some earthy yeast, candied sugar, fruity esters, alcohol

T- spicy and earthy up front with some musty yeast and phenols, some alcohol kicks in eventually leading to a fruity earthy finish

M- medium body with low carbonation leads a big foamy mouthfeel that leads to a creamy warming finish

O- a bit boozy at times, but other than that all the classic characteristics of a tripel (605 characters)

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell but also has notes of light fruits.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes more like a hybrid between a tripel and a saison.

750 ml bottle into a tulip glass, bottle #7983.

Pours a hazy yellow, medium head, some cling.

Smell is lots of yeast, then Candi sugar, some funk, light malt. Slight earthy hoppiness. Hints of pineapple and black pepper. Taste continues the yeast, more malt than the nose, some funk, hint of clove. Dry, full bodied for the style, refreshing.

Really good beer. It's about halfway to a Saison, but still retains the Tripel identity. Has a sharper feel to it than your typical Tripel. (491 characters)
