ContemplateBeer (1432) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Aroma: Moderate grapefruit presence, nearly balanced by honey and a bit of rosemary; like an IPA/Saison. Appearance: Cloudy gold with a bubbly white head. Flavor: Some cheesecloth/rosemary with grapefruit balance. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, very lively carbonation, long finish. Overall: A nice marriage of styles, but doesn’t reach the heights of other DdC beers for me.

TheEpeeist (3177) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2013
11.5 oz bottle. Hazy orange with a snowy white head. Nose is citrus pith, tangerine and toffee with a hint of catty pine. Syrupy medium body with dull prickles and some heat. Taste is honey, grass, sweet basil and orange peel. The hops have faded nicely but still help to counter the typical cloy of a tripel.

Ferris (2017) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Draft - Sweet, herbal, light grass and weirdly meaty. Hazy gold with a rich white head. Alcohol, herbal, bitter and just not great. Sadly a miss.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2013
11.5oz bottle, from Party Source. Notches in bottle are for 0 and 4, not sure how to understand that yet. Mostly clear golden orange color. Little white head, leaves good rows of lace. Kind of a sweet taste, candy sugar. Citrus flavor, some passionfruit. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Bigger body, kind of a slick finish. Solid, interesting, but doesn’t work quite as well as I’d hoped. A bit unnecessarily sweet.

jkwood04 (3406) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 13, 2013
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber/golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel and pale malts, light citrus hops, and hints of fruits. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good Belgian Tripel, but it could have more hoppiness since it’s made with citra hops.

SrSilligoose (3122) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 13, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 bottle offered by glouglouglouburp. what a nice fella! creamed yellow hue. aroma of big juicy potent pineapple fruit. cotton candy offered. some toasted marshmellow as well. bitter resin offering provides some balance against the sweet melon booze fruits. neat fruit character. unique brew. Too muchy boozy honeydew. IIPA- barley wine- Tripel hybrid of some sort. fine, high boost.

thornecb (4166) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Pours hazy gold into a tulip. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving scant lacing. Sweet tropcical fruit aromas. Soft yet full with sweet caramel and toffee upfront turning to sharp citrus and tropical fruit and yeast in the lasting warm finish. Nice - I miss new Dieu du Ciel offerings.

yrstruly (331) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
Cask Days 2013. Almost worth the exorbitant prices for this beer alone. Poured slightly hazy, bright orange-gold with a bubbly white head. Massive aroma of honey, citrus, peach, mango, and a bit of a phenolic edge. Sweet up front, with a ton of hop flavour carrying through to a medium bitterness. This was medium-full bodied. Perfectly balanced in my opinion, an incredible beer. Dieu du Ciel wins again.

cargo150 (420) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
Bière dorée-ambrée avec un beau col. Nez de malt, de fruit et de houblon Citra. En bouche, c’est très impressionnant: Arôme complexe de malt, de fruits, de houblon citra et avec une franche amertume. Excellente bière j’ai hâte que le mois de cette bière revienne dans la série momentum pour faire des provisions. Une de mes bières préférée a ce jour.

cask. Clear gold colour. Aroma is pine, pine, pine! Hoppy pine and citrus taste, sweet honey. Very bold. Different, not really my thing.
