Treated as a Belgian IPA, this was poured into a tulip, the appearance was a semi-cloudy burnt dark orange almost copper color with a thin white foamy head that quickly dissipated. Touch of stringy sliding lace. The aroma had a nice blend of green apple skin and it’s flesh with some wood and light vinous notes. Light leather then some earthy to grassy sweet to bitterness. Ever so slight funk at the end. The flavor yields to the tartness initially and then ends up developing a slight sour to sweet green apple with a leafy/earthy/grassy sweetness, slight bitterness. Aftertaste coats my tastebuds full of green apple skin tart and sweet. Semi-dry cider-like tart vinous finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sly sessionability about it. Tartness doesn’t distract too much, ends up just sliding on out to fulfill a nice quaint semi-dry woody edge over my tongue. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, all around seemed like everything came through appropriately. Very nice and worthy of having again if I could get it.

Picked up a 4 pack of these cans at the brewpub. The non barrel aged Triomphe is a very solid belgian style IPA. This pours a deep gold/amber with no real head to speak of. The nose is sweet bourbon and faint hops. There is a peaty, earthy note here with some vanilla on the back end.

Quick review from notes Michigan Brewer's Guild summer festival 7/25/2015: found this beer to be confusing and over powering to my pallate
