Already into a meeting meal in which three beers had already been shared, my palate needed to be cleansed and Triomphe worked. This went particularly well with Mexican food from one of Rick Bayless' kitchens, Oxo. I had a seared vegetable sandwich.

The spices in this beer give me cause to pair with Mexican-like spices again.
I do not regard this as a session ale: hops and spicy food for me.

This beer is golden in color. It is slightly sweet and has mellow hops, but definitely still apparent. This contains a classic Belgian yeast strain that gives way to sweet yet complex aromatics, and lastly rounds out with citrus notes to create a very balanced IPA.

This beer has a light golden brown color. It's scent is unique and refreshing as it is hoppy and pine-like. The taste holds strong hops, is rather warm, and has sour and bitter notes. The texture is hoppy and has a bitter aftertaste.

I like this beer better than the other Brewery Vivant beer, this one has fruity aroma with a little sweet tasting. Sweet orange peel and yeast flavor.

Dark amber color. Citrus scents and taste with an interesting undertone of pine mixed in with it.. Hoppy and earthy. Good beer! Would order again but only at the brewery for best flavor.

When poured, this beer has a good amber color, almost dark caramel. It had a great head of bubbles that disappeared rather quickly. It has a citrus aroma, earthy and piney. This could be hops as well. It was a sweet tasting beer, I could full hops out of it but not as much as other IPAs. Overall very good. I would drink again.

This beer appeared darker in color, more of a golden brown. When it was first poured it was bubbly, had a wheat smell/taste to it. It was also fizzy after taste.

This beer appears more golden, caramel-tinted and rich in color. Tastes very "pine-y" with citrus undertones. Very hoppy, but pleasant and flavorful. I found it lingering but very well balanced. I would definitely drink it again!

At first glance this beer is a dark golden brown. It has a strong hoppy and pine-like smell that is very intriguing. The head is a few fingers. The first taste is sour and bitter, with a very strong hoppy feeling. As it goes down, you can feel a warmth in your throat. This is a really great IPA. It has the bitterness that you want with hops, but just enough to make it tasty and refreshing with a crisp palate!
