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.

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.

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!

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.

Can. Pours a clear orange with a slight earthy amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet citrus with a hint of grassy hops and just a bit of sweet grains. Flavor begins with sweet citrus and is backed by a lot of sweet grains with a bit of belgian yeast as well as grass.

Tasted in October 2011 from a 16oz can shared at a tasting. Pours hazy bright orange with an average white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is dusty and fruity with some citrus and resin hops, along with apricot with a green cucumber note. The flavor is pretty much the same with the fruity apricot up front, moving to citrus and resin hops and bitter cucumber skin. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long, fruity, and lightly bitter finish.

Draft on tap at the brewery (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a rich amber orange hue, darker with a gentle haze. Mellow carbonation, frothy offwhite head dies as a ring, laces ok. Very nice glow in body and edges. Aromas throw gentle fruit, a bit of ester, some firmer grapefruit and lemon. Gentle florals, mellow bitter hoppy nose to start but it is a bit cold. A bit more fruit, oranges and rind throw into the fold as we move on. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter with a firm hop presence. Fuzzy peach, firm grapefruit, lemon rind. Some good floral dryness, decent to medium bitterness hits the palate off the bat. Firmer dryness, the malt body is bready, a touch toasty and carmelized. Firm dryness carries on into the middle, a good bitter hop presence provides synergy. But a firm malt bill also offers some balance. Bread, dry earthy hop presence continues to present itself. Backend is much more dry, light bodied. Some soap, florals, decent citrus but itís definitely not the focus. Finish is dry but not overly so, fairly clean, a gentle Belgian yeast presence and touches of fruit move on. Pretty nice Belgian IPA. Really goes through the motions. Not a hop screamer but integrates itís hops and what it has quite well. Nice beer.
