In this import beer blog, we are going to get into a brew from Belgium. It is Viven Brewery Imperial IPA. There is not much history and I cannot find any information on this brewery. I do know this brewery is from Europe. On their website, this brewery was founded in 1999. Let us get into this Import IPA.
It has a cloudy copper color with a constant white head. The aroma has a lemon, citrus, and some funky Belgian spicy yeast notes. The taste has a smooth dry slight citrus notes with a dry bitter aftertaste. It is a nice sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.viven.be):
Viven Bier – Vlaamse brouwkunst.Viven Imperial IPA is originally from the west coast of America. This recipe, combined with the Flemish brewing art, has an excellent result. It does many beer lovers’ hearts beat faster. It is a bitter hunk with a beautiful balance of citrus keys (especially pink grapefruit) and floral tones. A true experience for the senses…

Closing, When Ashley’s Westland did their Belgium Fest, I wanted to try this beer. It was at the top of my list. They sold out the first day of event. I was disappointed that there was not too much information on this brewery. I was looking for Imperial IPA but it taste like Imperial triple. It is still a great product. I am glad I have tried it. If you can find, I would try it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
