One of my favourite beer. Aroma of fruits and hops. When you look at it, the color is orange and hazy. A taste divine, fruity and bitter. It is a really beautiful experience in the palate. A must taste!

This thing is a work of art! Pours a beautiful cloudy golden with a nice big frothy white top. Aroma of big citrus, yeast, bread and passion fruit. Taste is a great dry citrus hop bitter snap on the palate, softened with the sweet passion fruit and finally backed by the soft yeast bready notes. I need to find more of this.

Dieu du Ciel always delivers. One of the best breweries in the world #19 2012. I am not a Tripel fan but I am a hop head and the Citra hops in this genius. I love this. Simply amazing. Super rich silky creamy thick. Tripels are in your face and Citra hops are very in your face. The two balance each other out. What you end up with is a Triple IPA. resin, floral, citrus, alcohol, banana, bubblegum, butterscotch, vanilla, orange, amber, hazy, minimal head, white foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, salty, umami, full body, soft carbonation, bitter, long sweet finish, Fabulous!

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.

En bouteille, servie dans un calice. Un beau blond doré opaque. Mousse blanche et crémeuse tenant bien. Au nez, de puissantes notes d’agrumes (citron, orange et pamplemousse) qui masque légèrement un arôme de levure belge. En bouche, l’entrée est très douce et fruitée; suivit de saveur marquée sur le palais qui laisse un agréable sensation en arrière bouche. Amertume tranchante et goût floral. Malgré son goût puissant, cette bière demeure très désaltérante. Une mixte intéressant entre une bière de style belge et le hyper-houblonnage de style américain. Peut-être une des meilleures chez Dieu du ciel!

Belle couleur dorée, avec une mousse généreuse. Nez de houblons floraux avec des notes de pamplemousse. Le bouquet en réalité rappelle celui d’une IPA. En bouche, c’est une explosion sucrée qui fait son apparition. Sucre d’orge, fruits tropicaux, cantaloup, pamplemousses. S’y mêle une amertume irrésistible qui ne laissera personne indifférent. Cela me fait définitivement penser à un vin d’orge. C’est puissant, bien balancé. Wow! À 10.2% d’alcool, il ne faudra pas en abuser. Le sucre d’orge se mêle merveilleusement à notes herbales qu’apporte le houblon Citra. Une belle découverte! Cheers!

Bottle. Orange-gold, thick white head.My God I’ve had some shit beers out at the lake this weekend, so I am really vibrating to try this.It smells amazing: lots of tropical fruit and spicy yeast. This is a dense palate of flavours: the fresh fruit is spectacular, and adds depth and character to what could otherwise be syrup sweetness-- lots of fresh pineapple, nectarine, guava, but it’s more than that.. The yeast is pillowy soft, yet the mouthfeel is heavy, and somehow the whole profile stays bright and balanced and dangerously drinable at 10+%. Estery spice with white pepper dryness ending the parade of flavours before a surprisingly bitter finish ends it all off. I loved this beer. I’m no true style judge, but this hit all the numbers for me in a way that a tripel hasn’t in a long time.

341ml bottle, pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with a nice foamy head and lots of lace. Nice aroma of citrus and yeast, flavours of dried citrus fruit, sweet malts and some bready yeast. Noticeable alcohol - nice full body. Very nice beer.

341ml bottle. Hazy amber with a thin white head. Smells like a mix of Tripel malts with grapefruit IPA hops, a little dusty yeast. Very nice. Complex taste, bubblegum and candy sweetness, citrus, floral and a touch of earthy hops, some alcohol flavour, but not burn. Love combinations of IPAs and Belgian styles, generally, and this one did not disappoint.
