Amber lager with complex malt and floral hop aromas. It is a full-bodied beer with subtle caramel tastes. The noble hops used to brew this beer bring about a delicate bitterness.

Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2004
Clear amber body with a nice but diminishing bubbly head. Malty aroma with some caramel hints. Light hoppy flavors and carbonation. Taste carries a discreet sweetness and ends on a decently long and bitter final. The whole thing is well balanced. Average Vienna.

rederic (3257) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2006
Hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a frothy beige head, caramel and crystal malts nose with a faint fruity note, toffeish hint in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with caramelized malts flavors, floral hops accent, with a delicate kind of peppery note, leading towards a nice lingering hop bittering finish.

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2006
A mostly diminishing large creamy tan head tops up a clear medium amber body. Moderate lacing. No particles. No bubbles. Aroma presents caramel malt being medium biscuity while hops are very faint leafy /metallic (fuggles?)... Yeast character is light fruitiness. Also, there are evident evocations of wild-berries. Initial flavor is moderate sweet while development adds up notes of .. fruity impressions.. Finish is medium . medium body... watery texture... Soft carbonation... Overall, it’s an impressive lager! I need to get more infos about the so-called vienna style..

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
In short: A simple lager with plenty of caramel and some resinous leafy hops. Decent, no more.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear copper body toped by a long lasting small beige head
In long: Nose of caramel and leafy hops. Taste is not very complex with fruity caramel, some berries and ending with a mild resinous bitterness. Pleasant full body with an appropriate medium carbonation. The lager character does come through despite the thick caramel. A bit too heavy on the caramel to be really sessionnable like a Vienna should be. This is a beer that Dieu Du Ciel hadn’t brewed in three years. Not a bad beer at all but with all the high-quality beers that they serve at this pub if they wait another three years to brew it again there will be a bigger protest than the last march against tax cuts.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2004
Red copper beer with a faint malt nose. Sweet malts with butterscotch qualities (diacetyl in a good way), with lotws of clean crisp hops. Good body for a lager. Excellent.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Amber colour. Buttery and boldly malty. Medium sweet with fairly soft mouthfeel. Some licorice in the finish. Lagers appear not be be the strong side of Dieu du Ciel.

muzzlehatch (4837) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Smooth, sweet, a bit dull, little is coming to mind for this one; I have not the poetry of MartinT. Above average for many brewpubs, so-so at best for DDC.

DerWeg (1595) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2010
Great look with almost ruby color, ring white foam. Aroma is slight butter and peanut over sweet fruit. Taste is nutty and has a good dry hop but the damn peanut taste, ehh not good lager.
