Okay. The bird is the word.
Once a year we all sit with friends and family and gussy up the table a bit more than usual. The time of Holiday feasting is upon us. In the middle west that means meals chock full of flavor, carbs
Belgian Style India Pale Ale
Triomphe is made with a classic Belgian style yeast strain that gives the complexity and slight sweetness you may expect from a Belgian style ale. The beer then reaches deeper providing a smack-down of American grown hops to turn the style on its head. It has a light caramel color, is strongly bitterwith a fruity citrus aroma.
This beer style is a nod to the American craft beer movement. Brewers from around the world have been inspired by Belgian beers for hundreds of years. This is the first time I am aware of that Belgian brewers have been inspired by what we are doing here in the US. This style uses classic Belgian techniques and then infuses it with American hops to give you a "best of both worlds" kind of scenario. Enjoy!
