COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dernière volonté (French for "Last Will") is a mix of Belgian and English brewing traditions. Complex flavours of hop flowers and spicy, fruity esters from our belgian yeast are perfectly balanced with the robust flavours and aromas of malt. The finish is commandeered by an assertive aroma from dry-hopping.

Bottle (saveur bier). Golden hazy. Nice sharp citrus, belgy yeast, pale malts on nose. Bitter mouthfeel, bit dry. Soft though, enjoyable. Pretty long fruity hoppy finish. Real nice.

Iphonephan (3354) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear gold with a thick off white head. Feint aroma of Belgian yeast. Flavors of tropical fruits with strong floral notes. Smooth, clean finish.

Aroma is very piney, mineralic with grassy and leafy green hop tones. Spicy mint and lemongrass fruitiness (pears, oranges). Superb balance between dry-hopping and the belgian ale serving as fundation. Loads of grassy hops, lemon, mild apples and white grapefruit, yeasty. Delicate balance imo. Body could be bigger though, but the moderately high carbonation fits well. Coating aftertaste, bitter, sprucey.

Beese (1971) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush on 14 Oct. Poured a cloudy orange, with a dense white head. Aroma of soft fruit, yeast esters and pineapple. Some citrus hop notes in the flavour with apricot sweetness and a bready backbone. Finish was sharp peal, pine and chalk.

341ml bottle served in a tulip glass. Reviewing it while bottling my 4th home-made IPA :) A: Beautiful bottle art, Dieu du Ciel trademark. Pours a hazy bright orange color forming a creamy and compact beige head. Great retention and lots of lingering and molasses lacings left in the glass S: Absolutely belgian IPA in the nose :). Sweet malts, candy sugar, spices, flowery hops and earthy yeasts. Notes of honey, dark fruits, cinnamon and cloves. Hops are quite citruses. Very pleasant, though T: Follow the nose. Sweet, fruity and spicy upfront. Notes of candy sugar, caramel malts, cinnamon, cloves, honey, earthy yeasts, peaches, white bread. Complex. Delicious. Finish is slightly hoppy bitter M: Creamy molasses body. Medium carbonation. Sweet and spicy aftertaste O: Very drinkable. It’s not at all a Belgian IPA but a Belgian Strong Ale. Great beer which is no surprise considering the brewery [ BA Review @ 4/6/2013 ]

arondee (568) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Pours a medium orange color with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is light hops, belgian yeast, bananas, fruit. The taste is lemons, bananas, tasty earthy flavored hops, and belgian candy sugar. Unfortunately there’s a bitter metallic aftertaste after every sip that destroys the taste. I like it but I hate the aftertaste.

minutemat (1765) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Keg @ Brewdog, Birmingham. Pours hazy orange with floral aroma. Spicy Belgian yeast esters in the taste, floral hops with some vanilla and light fruitiness. Very nice indeed.

Draft at BD ShepBush. Hazy gold, receding head. Rich toffee and vanilla, apple blossom, light spice ester nose. Rich sweet fudge, custard, light floral, moderate bitterness, more apple and some light citrus. Nice enough but I’d like more hop character for a Belgo IPA.

Calisky (872) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 8, 2014
Couleur jaune dorée, légère mousse blanche. Nez houblonné un peu fruité. Gout houblonné une peu fruité, corps un peu petillant aspirine, amertume en fin de bouche, assez seche. Pas une IPA, pas une super belge, en dessous des Dieu du ciel habituelles.
