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.

Can’t say I tasted this properly as I drank it out of the can which was in a paper bag to conceal it (very cleverly I might add) from the Michigan State University police dept. before the U2 concert of summer 2011. That said; I really liked it - seems like a great marriage between a Belgium ale and American IPA. I look forward to a "proper" tasting. BTW, the police were completely fooled by the paper bag. Cloak and dagger extordinaire!

Had this on tap at Slows bbq. Poured into a pint glass and pours a medium gold color with a nice and foamy head. Nice aromas of citrus, hops, oranges and spices. It doesn’t have that much depth to it, but is nice. Very good medium/full feel with nice depth and notes of citrus, navel oranges, and spices. Nice and smooth feel too. A quality belgian ipa. It was also nice to have with some brisket.

Good. Solid floral hop elements with Belgian yeast. Not as remarkable as Trebuchet, however. A more approachable Belgian for those new to the flavor profiles.

16 oz. can pour into my Paulaner stein. A slightly above average Belgian IPA. Had on tap at Duke’s Canoe Club in Portland, MI in July ’11, much better on tap. Maybe having it out of a can turned me off slightly, still getting used to canned crafts.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a medium amber color with minimal white head. Aroma was grass and hops. Flavor was similar with a bit of sweetness as well. Not as hoppy as some hop heads would probably want. I’m not an IPA fan, but this was not bad. It was the best of the sampler brews I tried.

Pours clear, ruby red. White head. Earthy, lightly spicey aroma. Bitter taste, thin and oily texture.

NayTron (133) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Can. Pours a golden amber with white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, pine, and can. Taste of hops (nice and sweet) some grass and citrus. Finishes with a nice hops bitter, then some can notes. All in all not to bad. Good mouthfeel. Some lacing on the glass. Would like to try on tap.

Dark golden color. Strong wort presence with a touch of yeast, but balanced towards malts for an IPA.

Golden brown pour, slight haze. Four finger, off-white, highly perforated head that persists. Sweet, yeasty, bright floral nose. Faint medicinal and bubble-gum notes. Forward malt on the palate with hints of burnt candy sugar and lingering hop notes. Perfectly-balanced sweet and bitter. Beautiful, thick Belgian lace. Certainly moreish. Refreshing. The ABV is not evident. Some flocculence at the final pour.
