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.

Hazy golden pour with white head. Aromas of hay, yeast, coriander, spicy notes. Medium bodied and creamy. Flavours of bready malt, citrus, yeast. Oddly minty. Nice.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle @ Hamnmästaren in Malmö. New bottles which labels it as a "Belgian IPA". Not one of their best but still very decent.

Ambrée avec un col moyen blanc. L’arôme du levure belge, les épices (comme du cannelle et clous de girofle), et du fruit. Le goût est du malt, épices, et fruit avec une finale légèrement amer avec une presence solide des épices.

*Beer Review* Derniere Volonte from Dieu du Ciel My wife and I visited Dieu du Ciel in Montreal as part of our honeymoon. At the time they served 2 of the top 10 beers in the world. This was not one of those. Actually never heard of this until I saw it at the LCBO. Very hazy golden yellow pour with lacy head. Weak scent. Smelly like a beer. A hoppy beer but a beer. Holy fruity. Tastes nothing like the usual puckery grapefruit like bitterness of most pale ales. Seriously wow. This is fantastic. Notes of cinnamon and spice just a touch of bitterness in the middle but a sweet finish. Very clean.

stantheman (613) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A medium amber in color, with a bit of head. A very decent Belgian style ale. I cannot say more at this time.

WheatKing (1246) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold, white head. Nose of wheat, spice, lemon-orange citrus. Flavour is lemon wheatiness with pepper, phenols are quite high. Finish is dry and thin. Alright, pretty much a wit.

Beeraneczky (1) - - JAN 29, 2014 does not count
Just an all around incredibly well made beer. Definitely feels rich in the mouth. A rich dense fruity nose with a floral lift. A beer I just can’t stop smelling and tasting. I think it needs to definitely warm up in the glass to be fully expressive due to the dense richness. Getting really tired of overbuilt beers and appreciating more and more the importance of body and character and nuance. The kind of thing usually found in beers that have a generations in the making maturity to the recipe (Like Ayinger Dunkel, for instance). If this is where Dieu Du Ciel is now as a young brewery, it will be exciting to taste them in 50 years. If I’m overstating this beer, I’d like to know what imperfections I’m missing.
