COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was specially brewed for Dieu du Ciel’s sixth anniversary. It reflects the recent tendency of American brewers to push all beer styles to the extremes. This lager is therefore quite strong in alcohol and it has a sharp but delicate bitterness, like all pilsners. The beer is full-bodied and well balanced thanks to the delicate sweet flavours that come through.

Glowing body, small head. Very interesting. Carbonation, funky, alcohol warmth, cinnamon even. Odd beer, who would age this? Lots if fun to try though! (Bottle shared with Fx and generously brought to Paris by Tommy)

lesifflebiere (1187) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Boisson dorée légèrement orangée, mousse rare, effluves de vin rouge, de levures sauvages et de sucres. En bouche, sécheresse de houblons, saveurs de toffee et de levures bretts, le pinot noir est aussi dans le décor. Le tout est relativement rond, complexe, savoureux. Un vieillissement moins long (15 mois) aurait peut-être été préférable, étant donné que le côté pilsner, même impérial, perd vite de sa superbe face aux autres éléments, mais sinon cette bière est un grand délice sans vraiment d’égal sur le marché.

czar (4109) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
bottle thanks to hoppypocket. pours hazy pale golden with a small creamy-ish white head, little retention and lacing. red wine and bretty funk, strong oaky notes - vanilla, red grapes, tannins, berries, miscellaneous fruitiness - juicy, slightly perfumey, tingling booze, grassy-herbalness, sweet honeyed and doughy pale maltiness. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, silky and a bit sticky, assertive grassy-herbal-citrusy medium long finish. this one is tough to rate: there’s nothing really left of the original brew if not sweet pale malts, bold herbal-grassy hops and booze ; citrusy-zingy and not quite tart enough to be a sour. at times, it’s like red wine and cheese in a glass. definitely enjoyable..

mathieuc (1142) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 Bottle thanks to czar, thanks a lot! Pours a nice golden with a thin and weak white head that doesn’t leave much lacng. Nose is intense fruits and wine, pinot of course. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter with some light oak flavors along the intense wine presence. Body is medium, texture really oily. Alcohol is warming. Nice!

Bouteille 341mL. Bière orangée translucide, peu moussante. Nez de levures sauvages. Grasse en bouche, la présence de levures est marquée surtout en attaque, mais on retrouve également des notes d’oranges sanguines/mandarines trop mures. Collante et chaude en finale... Bien, mais je rêvais à plus...

BiereLuc (855) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
Bière dorée / orangée avec un mince halo mousseux et une faible effervescence. Le nez est très sauvage; une armée de brett s’annonce. En bouche, les levures prennent effectivement les commandes – peut-être même un peu trop. En comparaison avec la Dernière Volonté ayant aussi séjourné en fût de pinot noir, cette 6e soir semble davantage affectée par la flore du baril que par sa nature boisée. Par ailleurs, la bière semble mince en texture, mais l’ampleur des saveurs lui confère, au bilan, beaucoup de corps. Un beau produit, agréable... simplement plus intense et moins équilibré qu’anticipé.

Ferris (2889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle - Wine barrel dominates. Cloudy copper with a thin head. Very sweet grains, grapes and wine acidity. Heat and bitterness in the finish. A nice sipping beer.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with minimal white head and no lacing. Aroma of funk, horse blanket, fruity notes, light hops. Taste is fruity, some peaches, little pears, wine notes, oak funky, lightly sour, a bit hoppy, little bitterness. Medium body and low carbonation. Interesting.

jonno (2231) - JAPAN - JAN 19, 2013
Really grooved on this. Super lambic like nose. Smooth, pretty darn hoppy some interesting residual sweetness with a hint of honey. Lemon, peach and a bit of raisin. Very nice and totally unique. Quality.
