COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Triomphe: Belgian IPA 6.5% abv 16 oz large tulip glass This beer is made with a classic Belgian style yeast strain that gives the complexity and slight sweetness you may expect from a Belgian style ale, but then reaches deeper providing a smack-down of American hops. Served in a large Tulip glass to capture the and focus the hop aromas.

Pint-size can. Poured fiery medium-orange with a tall, sticky white head. The aroma picked up orange rind and fruity yeast, joined by white pepper and cloves.. sweeter, honeyed undertones.. sweet overall, and fairly enjoyable. The flavor found sweet caramel, crusty bread, and honey at the core, with spiced-up darker fruity yeast laced throughout.. the yeast worked a little too hard in here, but it was still alright.. dry, spicy finish. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. again the yeast presence was a little strong.. decent brew.

Tap @ Brewery Vivant. Slightly hazy, orange appearance with an off white head. Moderately earthy, citrusy, slightly piney hoppy, dull malty aroma. Floral, somewhat citrusy, herbal hoppy, belgian yeasty flavor.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2011 Light crisp sweet, malty, too. This is light and easy to drink. Flavor contains Caramel, sweet, cloudy and and not too bitter.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Can: The aroma consists of light orange, peach, Belgian yeast, and faint grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a one-finger orange tinged off-white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. Thereís some spotty webbing left behind for lacing. The flavor starts with orange, caramel, peach, and light Belgian yeast. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, lighter pine, and a touch of spice. Light-medium boided with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, the Belgian characteristics are much more mild compared to other Belgian IPAs Iíve previously had. Itís a decent thirst quencher, but probably not something Iíd look to if Iím in the Belgian IPA mood.

Strykzone (4811) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2011
16 oz. can bought on a trip to Michigan. This has a huge fluffy off white head that leaves powdery lacing. The beer is clear amber. I smell pine and citrus hops with some caramel malt and spice. This beer is hop forward especially with that citrus. Floral notes. Some yeast is tasted but it is subtle as is spice. Caramel flavor and some toast. At the finish spruce lingers on the tongue. Good.

16oz Can. Thanks Sean! Give me a grassy waft, a malty undertone and some coppery color. Harken a Belgian IPA? No. Whereís the Belgian? Whereís the IPA? Iíve had American Pale Ales that had more phenols and more hoppiness than this. Instead, what weíve got on our hands is the Worldest Cleanest Belgian Amber Ale. Every so slightly a minty hop finish and a terse Crystal-heavy malt body. No, this isnít subtle and Iím just not getting it, itís missing everything it purports to be.

Gription79 (2232) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 5, 2011
16 oz can
A: spicy yeast and alcohol, toasty malts, American hops that are not well defined-muddled
T: spicy, malty more bready then toasty, again with muddled American hops
Overall the beer is worth a taste, nothing really wrong with it. A nice balance between the malts, yeast, and the bitterness.

Share by Jose of the Coachella Valley Homebrewers Club last Saturday. Thanks for providing this. Morning light colored body with some hay. Smell is a lot of lemongrass, melon rind, maybe a bit of honeydew flesh. Not really getting any real belgian yeast character out of this. Taste is quite lemongrassy, some grassy lawnmower bag hops that come off slightly dissonant. This tastes like a lower end IPA, and a completely miss for Belgian IPA. Can date was smeared on the bottom, more than a month old. Should still hold better in the can.

Pours clear amber with a full bone head. Aroma is sweet citrus hops, some mild spice. This is quite a unique little brew. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Some sweet malt notes up front give way to a really pleasant and moderate bittering on the finish. Good balance between sweet and bitter, and a very nice touch from the Belgian yeast. A really interesting and worthwhile beer to try.

bottle... dark gold with a bit of copper, a bit light tan head rises several fingers, good retention, not much lace...sweet malty nose with yeast, but its a bit hot, has alcohol to it thats unwelcome... tastes ok, but forgetable, a bit too much yeast, but some nice floral notes, the sweetness takes a nice back seat here... meh
