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.

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.

16oz can from Sicilianos 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.

16oz Can. Thanks Sean! Give me a grassy waft, a malty undertone and some coppery color. Harken a Belgian IPA? No. Wheres the Belgian? Wheres the IPA? Ive had American Pale Ales that had more phenols and more hoppiness than this. Instead, what weve 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 isnt subtle and Im just not getting it, its missing everything it purports to be.

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.

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.

Draft at Standard Market, Westmont. $4 in a 10 oz Solemn Oath tulip. My first encounter with Brewery Vivant. Clear IPA style amber/orange color under a foamy head. Citrus and pine hops in the nose. I just assume that a Belgian ale has aromatic malts to it, but this seems more like the satandard English PA malt, crisp, yet sturdy enough to showcase a happy hop profile. Plenty malty as most IPAs go, and that makes a pleasant difference.

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.

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.
