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.

This poured a darker cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of belgian yeasty notes, and some citrusy and dusty hops. Flavor was much the same a bit sweet, and candy like with almost enough hops to make it balanced. OK

16 ounce can thanks to Bradley. Big and yeasty. Orange and citrus. Is that different from the other one I had? Ok overall.

Sampled at STL Hops 6th Anniversary Party - Pours clear golden with an off-white head. The aroma has cream, hoppiness, Belgian maltiness, fruity/earthy yeast, caramel and stone fruits. It has a medium crisp body with light sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with pine, citrus, caramel, spice, cream and earth. The finish taste earthy and spicy. Good Belgian IPA.

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

16oz can from Siciliano’s Market in Grand Rapids, MI. Pours an ever-so-slightly hazed, deeper orange-amber colored body with an inch thick, dense, foamy and rocky, light tan head that collapses slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is on the milder side with a bit of a watered-down smell. Some medium-sweet Belgian yeast with a light spice, a mix of herbal and floral hops, some lemon-grass citruses, and a light caramel and bready malt adding a bit to the sweetness. Flavor is similar and a bit thin feeling. Some spicy Belgian yeast mixes with a decent earthy and herbal hopping up front before some florals and citruses grow. A light caramel comes in with some bread before the hops grow a bit towards the end. Finishes dry with a medium bitterness and a good amount of yeasty spice as well as a bit more of a bready malt coming out. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-thin feeling body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Belgian IPA. Its a bit thin and never really comes fully together for me, but it has enough of a hopping and yeastiness to keep it enjoyable enough.

Herbal and slightly medical nose with light honey malt. Really quite hoppy, has to be hallertau, malt is a bit dull, really the only detracting point. Solid.

On tap at the brewpub. Translucent medium orange body, thin off-white head. Grassy hops nose with lots of clove and banana; bready and candy-like. Body of a typical Belgian IPA, grassy and estery with clove, banana, and light fruit and a relatively thin, grassy finish.

16oz Can. Thanks Sean! Give me a grassy waft, a malty undertone and some coppery color. Harken a Belgian IPA? No. Where’s the Belgian? Where’s the IPA? I’ve had American Pale Ales that had more phenols and more hoppiness than this. Instead, what we’ve 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 isn’t subtle and I’m just not getting it, it’s missing everything it purports to be.

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2011
16 oz. can. Aroma of strong citrus and pine hops, resin. The hops are along with a strong belgian yeast push, lots of fruity esters and mild spiciness. Flavor is good. Strong, bitter, lots of pine hops intertwined with yeasty spiciness. Lots of fruity esters come off from the yeast as well. Full bodied, finishes bitter and fruity. Pretty solid from this brewery.

Can. Pours clear, light copper with fizzy off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is floral hops, straw, honey, and light sweet malt. Flavor is malt forward (caramel), straw, with floral and citrus hops; dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.
