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.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours a dense amber body fraught with beautiful particulate beneath a creamy, lasting white head. Deep, fruity aroma... a sweet cocktail of cherries, peach, tangerine with a pleasing waft of alcohol as well as remnants of tea leaves, tree leaves and honey. The marriage of Belgium & England is well-played. Flavor leans towards the latter as the tongue is first met by the taste of an English IPA before it opens up to sweeter fruitiness, a cheesish yeastiness and, once again, a sweet drop of honey. Lightly astringent yet the flavors last with a complex sweet-yet-bitter spiciness. Quite incredible. ~~~~~~~ Single 12 oz. bottle from Archer Liquors, Chicago.

fhoublon (82) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml. Dégustée le 3 janvier 2009. Bière trouble blonde dorée. Mousse beaucoup, col très épais, crémeux et persistant. Peu effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de levure marquée, de miel. Douce, assez sucrée, peu amère. Goût un peu âcre, assez épicé, de miel. Très bonne mais manque un peu de raffinement comparé aux autres DDC.

tiong (3073) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 12, 2014
341ml bottle from Saveur-Biere

Bottled 09/2013 - Pours golden orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of spicy yeastiness, earthy floral notes and citrus. Taste is stingy, earthy and spicy with some Belgian yeastiness, floral hops and grass. Finish is bitter, sweetish and earthy with some tartish fruitness and yeastiness. Pretty good hoppy Belgian ale.

cattaneopapa (102) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
341ml bottle from LCBO. (Suggested by my cousin, David.) Toronto, ON. 7% alc./vol. Pours an opaqe pale amber colour with one finger of white which settles to a light ring shaped film with lacing clinging to the side of the glass. It has a complex fruity aroma but banana, apricot, and Belgian malt are pronounced. Taste follows the aroma in the beginning then finishes up acutely hoppy and leaves a dry, spicy palate. This was my first Belgian IPA. I think the interplay between the Belgian malt and IPA hops is tilted too much to the bitter hoppy side. Overall: Great beer for hoppy beer lovers. "Hát nem egy K?bányai! "

RickTheRick (194) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
Un collet de mousse généreux s’installe à long terme sur une robe orangée assez trouble. Un bouquet très fruité gracieuseté des houblons aromatiques et de la levure qui apporte une bonne dose d’oranges émane du verre. En bouche, tout est en douceur, c’est toujours aussi fruité grâce aux mêmes composantes que l’on retrouve au nez.

Bottled. Pours clear golden with a small, white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel and yeast. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with bitter notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A nice Belgian.

beerbaaron (931) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Poured s hazy golden orange, with sediment. Small creamy white head, fairly lasting. Fruity aroma. Yeasty, orangey type fruity, caramel, some spices and grains. Lighter medium body. Flavor is also fruity, accompanied by yeasty, some spices, grains, and alcohol. Finish is fairly dry with a some floral bitterness. Interesting. Dont think I’ve had something quite like it before. Some sips I dig it, some I don’t.

hellonearth (36) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Mi-belge, mi-IPA qu’on aurait quasiment pû me faire passer pour une blanche aux épices! Couleur jaune orangée intense. Légères effluves de clous de girofle et d’épices. Au goût, épices, levure belge, pamplemousse. L’amertume IPA est quand même là, pas SI présente cependant. Mais elle est plus complexe que ça, c’est le genre de bière qui se passe plusieurs choses à la fois. Riche expérience!
