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!

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.

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.

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.

750mL (bottle 1481, best before 05/2015) into a tulip. Pours a hazy pale straw color w/ a fluffly white head, nice patchy lace.

Aroma is sweet, fruity, floral and bready.

Taste is a blend of fruity, bready pale malt and bitter Old World hops. Sweet candi sugar, dried apricots, some vague spices. Citrus juice.

Mouthfeel is medium- to full-bodied with a clean dry finish. Good carbonation.

Overall a very nice, clean, fairly complex tripel from one of my favorite breweries.

I had this beer on-tap in a big taster glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.

Appearance: hazy, light golden hue with a light ivory foam and a decent lace. Pretty enticing!

Smell: lightly fruity, tangy aroma. It's a little bit citrusy and with a little tropical fruit character. It's nicely fruity, but the sour element isn't 100% on point for me.

Taste: fruity flavor toward the front, almost peachy in character. It's got an interesting dankness, with a sweet malt and a nice fruit element. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a rough & ready carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: quite refreshing and drinkable, especially for a beer of this strength. Good stuff.

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.
