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.

Je trouve que ce mélange des styles était peut-être un ptit peu trop osé. Arôme de houblon très végéta, et très étrange couplé avec les caractéristique d’une bonne bière biere d’abaye qu’elle pourrait offrir sans cela... Vraiment pas la meilleure du Dieu du Ciel!

Poured a good size foamy white head, with sediments clearly visible. Fairly hazy appearance. Strong cirtus/hops aromas. Great citrus flavours, with lemons, oranges, and others coming through. Also a bit yeasty, very tasty and smooth. Pretty good tangy mouthfeel. This one is clearly not an obvious strong beer, even with the 7% abv. Its’s not quite apparent at first, great easy drinking beer. Last Will? Pretty darn close!

Nez: Banane, levure Bouche: Pêche, citron, épicée, herbe grasse, légèrement résineuse Bière bien ronde dans laquelle on reconnait la levure Belge. Belle longueur en bouche tout en finesse de l’amertume.

One of the tastiest Belgian ales, with enough hop influence to cut away the normal sweetness. Very drinkable .

Bottle. Pours a bit hazy golden, medium white head, nice lacing. Aroma is grassy, floral, honey. Flavor is light sweet, and light bitter, floral, grassy, a bit of pepper, cereal grains, perhaps grains of paradise going on. Medium body, interesting for sure.

Not my cup of tea. Belgium IPA, no mas. This is one hybrid that did not mix. Boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jannick13 (142) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with large colapsing frothy white head. Aroma of sweet spices, peaches and a bit of bread. Taste is more of the same with a citrusy hop aspect in the forefront. Light to medium body. Dry finish.

Damn this beer was tasty. Golden color with a big frothy white head. Smells of earthy spices, peaches and grass. Flavors are more of the same along with some nice hoppy citrus presence. Feels like a saison mixed with an IPA. Perfect mouthfeel; substantial but still light enough to be an easy drinker and medium carbonation. Good mix of tartness, sweetness and bitterness.

App: Golden yellow with a slight haziness, light soapy head that dies down to a thin film that stick around for a while. Its a pretty presentation, typical of a belgian ale. Nose: Clove, pepper, a bit of banana, peach, apricot, white grapes, papaya, white bread very tropical and complex with a slight acidic edge reminiscent of a white wine with some added horse blanket, wet towel, barnyard funky notes that elevates this beer adding even more depth. Taste: the grapefruit and citrus notes typical of an ipa are more present while still getting those yellow stone fruits and tropical notes. The spicy notes like pepper and clove arent hard to find aswell as that nice funkyness. The bitterness is pleasent. A bit of dankness, pine and grassyness in a dry finish. This is a masterpiece of a beer with an unusual hop profile full of depth and complexity. It is highly drinkable. Its the type of beer that you have a hard time putting down. The malt are suddle in the background, leaving the floor for the hop and the yeast to shine in the spotlight. Very fresh, fruity and spicy while remaining very satisfying and complex. I can’t believe i took so long before getting this one. Will buy again, highly recommanded. (French) Apparence: Jaune dorée vibrant. Moyennement voilé, avec mousse savonneuse qui se dissipe en un mince film qui demeure présent. Une belle biere sexy and classy. Nez: Le clous, le poivre et un peu de banane. Les fruits sont a l’honneur avec des notes de pèche, abricots, raisin blanc, de papaye et de mis de pain blanc. Une certaine acidité et des notes funky de ferme, de couverture de cheval mouillée qui vient ajouté un agréable niveau de complexité. En bouche: Les notes classique d’agrumes tels que le pamplemousse, le citron et l’orange sont plus présente toujours avec des notes de fruits jaunes a noyau qui la diffère de la plupart des IPA. Le clou et le poivre, ainsi que les notes funky sont présentes en bouche également. Une finale avec une amertume moyenne, herbacé avec un peu de sapinage résineux et une touche de "dankness". Quelle belle profondeur. C’est difficile de poser son verre.
