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.

Rich amber color and solid body. Hops in aroma and taste, off set by some Belgian yeast spice.

Draft. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average creamy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sweet yeast and small hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet yeast flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

Golden pour with a white head with a little lacing, Grassy and citrusy aroma. Taste is similar with some maltiness on the backend. Pretty good.

Looking forward to trying some stuff from this brewery! A medium off-white head pours out of the can on top of a copper body. Light scattered lacing left on the glass after each sip. The aroma is citrusy, with wild floral notes; definitely pick up the Belgian yeast. Some pine is burried in the scent as well. The flavors mostly follow that; less citrusy perhaps, and more of a resinous/pine hop flavor combining with the Belgian yeast element. Itís more IPA than Belgian Ale, the yeast just adds a different element without getting in the way, which I like. It has firm bitterness but nothing over the top; nice and dry in the finish. The body is a shade light; at least moreso than expected, but Iíd hardly categorize it as thin. I like this. Sometimes the flavors can clash in these Belgian IPAs but this one works quite well.

Draft at bagger daves. Everything about this beer is citrusy and mild. I enjoyed it for dinner. Muted and not an all star but very drinkable.

On tap at brewery vivant. Great mixture of Belgian and ipa. I have had other offerings from this hybrid style but this one really nails it. More Belgian than ipa but that's what you want out of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From can. Sulfur hop funk and orange peel. Light hoppy character but mostly the nose of a Belgian ale. Pleasant. Brilliant orange-amber clear with foamy white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with orange-yeasty tang and light hop acidity. Moderate bitterness with some yeasty esters and light carbonic note. Mild bitter finish with lingering orange zest after.

Canít 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!
