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.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Big can! Pours a very clear mandarin with a sudsy head. Aromas are very faint... a little bit of barnyard funk, silo/grain dust and herbs. After the beer sits for a couple of minutes, I take another sniff and get blasted with resin and pine, but then it’s gone again. I’m pretty sure there is some sort of voodoo magic protecting this beer from my nose... First sip reveals that the dark magic might be affecting my palate as well. About all I get from it is a tingly hops sensation on the back of the tongue in the late aftertaste. The second sip reveals a bit more complexity, but the flavors (and aromas) seem to be playing hide and seek with me. A little bit of citrus (orange), a little bit of grass, some sweet and a little edge of tartness is about as descriptive as I can be (oh, with that tingly hops finish.) Interesting stuff, but it seems to vex me a bit.

tmoreau (2366) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2012
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served with a clear, orange/amber hue, a healthy layer of cream colored, cakey/moussy, persistent head foam, and decent cling to the wavey lacing. The nose was light yeasty funk, citrus, light fruit, and floral hints. The flavor was similar, adding light sweetness, a moderate, grapefruity, earthy hop bitterness, medium to light body, and a consistent dryness into the finish. Slightly thin texture, but tasty nonetheless.

Tap at vivant. Hazy reddish orange body with medium white head. Aroma of spicy, soapy hops, bitterness and some citrus rind. Flavor of light grapefruit and grass, lightly sweetened malt, and a touch of orange.

On tap at brewery, pours a clear dark orange amber with a off white head, the aroma has a decent amount of hops and some belgian yeast, the flavor has some citrus on the front end with the belgian yeast coming through in the finish, pretty well balanced, not bad.

Gription79 (2247) - 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.

drpimento (2210) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Gift of John, gracias amigo. Poured at a great temperature and a mammoth, off white head that lasts for a while. Color was a slightly hazy amber. Aroma was hop, malt, grass. Flavor is malt, hop, slightly dry, grain. Body is full and decent. Finish is of good length and little sign of alcohol.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2012
16oz can from rayl101. Pours a clear copper color with off-white head and nice carbonation. Some lacing is left behind as the head falls. Aroma is carmel, some citrus, wood. Taste follow suit, but is not overly bitter. Its a bit thin which detracts from the beer although it does make it go down easily. Missing something.

jstraw (1913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Amber-gold with nice, foamy, off-white head, decent legs / Sweet, steely, floral nose of spun sugar, violet, banana, resin, citrus / Medium body, soft carbonation, mildly sweet & syrupy, surprisingly dry and hoppy, lightly astringent, and big bitter finish / Stylish, dry flavors of straw, honey, spun sugar, violet, with only notes of banana and citrus / One of those rare cases where the nose doesn’t match the body or flavor, but this dry, pilsner-like Belgian is well suited for the summer.
