sudomorph (658) - Barrie, Ontario, - JUL 11, 2013
341ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with a slightly off-white, one finger head that thins to a film. Some medium lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet with notes of yeast, spices, dark fruits, caramel, and hops. Taste is a touch bitter but balanced will. Has a moderately long, mildly bitter, aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Low-medium body. An interesting beer. Taste is a bit different than the smell would lead on. Worth picking up and trying out. Would probably grab a bottle or two next time I’m in Montreal.

Received in a trade from Dresden -- Bottle poured into a Kölsch glass. A coppery brilliantly clear beer with thick, white foam that leaves nice lacing. Smells caramelized and a hint of woodiness, bittering hops also detected. Flavor is earthy, wood, caramel and an odd bitter/soap. Drinks very well. With the exception of the hint of soap flavor this is the best alt I’ve every had.

Arômes de fruits mûrs et de céréales, touche de fumée. Robe brune aux reflets roux, limpide, effervescence moyenne et légère mousse. En bouche, la bière montre une belle complexité maltée (fruits rouges, caramel, légère touche de chocolat et de tourbe). La bière est relativement ronde, sans être trop sucrée. Le houblon n’est pas aromatique, mais apporte une belle amertume bien franche.

eduardovl (871) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
341ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a copper red color forming a big creamy, thin bubbled and soapy head. Good retention and tons of soapy lingering lacings left in the glass S: Roasted malts and caramel, mainly. A little bit metallic. Light notes of bread and flowery hops T: Sweet upfront. Caramel, caramel, malts, sweet grains, bread and roasted grains. Light metallic notes. Medium and nice hops bitterness in the end. Quite good bittersweet balance M: Light body. Watery. Medium carbonation and a delicious caramel and malts aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Great Altbier. Dieu Du Ciel! quality [ BA Review @ 7/26/2013 ]

Yorker (1259) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2014

radiomgb (2263) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
355ml bottle from Marché Jovi in Gatineau Quebec. Rich mahogany in colour, thin lasting off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is quite sweet, malty, toasty, caramel. Flavour is light sweet, toasty, bready, cereal, bitter, quite earthy. Bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, bitter, toasty and earthy. It’s alright but not my favourite from DDC.

Sweet malt aroma, and subtle altbier flavour, but more complex and discreet than a German example. Easy drinking.

Osprey87 (1821) - WALES - SEP 23, 2014
Keg at Brewdog. Rose gold, slight haze, small foamy white head. Aroma is light lager, coffee breath. Body is light, low carbonation, fairly smooth. Taste is malty, slightly tangy with soft metallic notes. Hard to distinguish this from a macro lager.

Speedy_Charly (53) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Bouteille de 341ml chez Marché des Brasseurs. Une belle cuivrée recouverte d’une mousse beige onctueuse et persistante qui colle bien aux parois du verre. Odeur de céréales, malt, sucre et levure, mais assez décevante au goût. Ronde en bouche mais peu goûteuse, elle ne signale son passage que par une pointe aigrelette de houblon aux notes métalliques. On s’attend à plus de Dieu du Ciel...

Niksko (354) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2014
Pours a dark amber with fine off white head. Light, malty, fruity, slight bitter hops. Balanced and very good.
