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.

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.

16 oz. can pours a hazy orange with big white head and a little lacing. Nose is that of a Belgian, rather than an American IPA: lots of spices, yeast, and pears. Aroma is the same, heavier on the fruits, spices and floral hops than on the the sweet malts, which are also present. Mouthfeel is sticky, and body is medium, with active carbonation (perhaps too much). A decent, distinctively Belgian-style IPA from a midwest brewer I had not tried before. Good but not great.

Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma has a very Belgian appeal to it, but it is more subdued than many of that style. It contains yeast, spice, banana, pine, and caramel. The taste has much of those Belgian impressions detected in the nose, being the yeast and spices, while it goes along with pine, caramel, and grapefruit underneath. Dry and bitter with a piney yeast aftertaste. Medium bodied, sticky in texture, with active, fizzy carbonation. I wasn’t so impressed by the blend of different styles here.

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.

I do like the initial sweet taste of this beer but it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth towards the end.

Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade. This was poured into a tulip as I thought this was a Belgian IPA. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden bronzed amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There wasn’t much lacing. The smell had some tart to sour notes of grassy/lemon and moves towards some light Belgian spices. The taste combines it all to fit a sour to bitter mouthiness to fulfill a light tart fruitiness all around. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for a Belgian IPA as there was a pretty decent harshness but not overbearing. Overall, this was not a bad IPA or Belgian IPA, either way I could see myself having this again.

Can thanks to Ryan. Clear orange with suddy, white head. Weak lace. Nose is mild orange with celery. Taste is astringent, resinous, quite dry. Straightforward. Not a lot of yeast character. Normal citrus and astringent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft - part of a sample flight at the Brewery Vivant taproom. Pours a caramel color. White head. Mild hop aroma. Flavor of belgian spice. Some bitter in the finish, but I don’t really get an IPA feel out of this. Maybe its just me, but I have a hard time with Belgian IPAs. I just keep asking myself "what is the point". Not a bad beer, just not my favorite. Even thought this was my least favorite of the night I will try it again as it is becoming more available by can. Maybe I will see the point sooner or later.
