COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond like a ray of sunlight, crowned by thick foam and sustained by a pronounced effervescence, this beer is the delight of all our customers! Its bouquet is the result of a large array of floral and fruity esters which are complemented by a light and delicate fragrance of malts and hops. The first draught reveals a full-bodied beer with a malty sweetness and a warm touch of alcohol. A hint of acidity is discovered in the aftertaste, but it is quickly overcome by the sharp bitterness of the hops. The Rigor Mortis are complex beers designed and brewed with patience and care in the tradition of the great Belgian Abbey beers.

On tap at the brewpub. I’m not sure I’ve had a Tripel on tap before? Served in a tulip. Lovely dark hazy yellow, very creamy white head - really long lasting. Lovely Tripel aroma - strong alcohol, malt, tons of spice, hint of coriander and a candy sweetness. Assertive. Strong taste - lots of malt, yet medium bodied without being syrupy (tough to do at this alcohol). Lovely kick of spice and alcohol that never burns. Quite simply one of the finest tripels I have ever had - holds its own with any world class tripel. After the cask IPA and Berliner Weisee, this was quite a session at Dieu De Ciel with blankboy and really a showcase of what they can do!

Mondial de la Bière de Montréal; Awsome beer. This is the best beer I drank at the Mondial de la Bière de Montréal 2006. Dieu du Ciel is one heck of a brewery (pub). This beer hide really well the 10% alcohol. The first thing apparent about this beer is the fruity aroma and taste. I taste just like berry, cherry...I habituelly hate those kind of beer, but not in this case since you can still feel that its a beer. This beer had the same impact on me than Trois Pistoles by Unibroue, except that Trois Pistoles is still my beer. Vive Dieu du Ciel!!!

May 2005, this one was published as "Rigor Mortis Triple" and at 9%ABV. Alcohol was not detectable in the aroma, and appropriately noted in the flavor. Decent hoppiness (for a triple), but the flavor was a bit odd, somewhat sour-sweet. I’d take another one, given the opportunity, but it doesn’t beat out the "Trappist" beers themselves.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Golden yellow body with a fingers worth of fluffy white head and decent lacing (3+). Sweet alcoholic aroma has something familiar but not placed. Spicy pepper? Flavour has a sweet malt moment but the lingering aftertaste is exceptionally dry and peppery. Medium smooth palate could use a bit more carbonation (3+). A decent triple that fails to hit the right notes for me today.

Golden hazy ale with an onctuous creamy white head. Light bananas and coriander in aroma, a bit sulfuric though. Good sweet malts, candi sugar, crisp hops, coriander and orange peels. Rich and onctuous in mouth, with smooth alcohol. March 24, 2006.

Hazy honey gold hue, with an off-white head, the nose is one of a yeasty, bready dough, candied citrus fruits fruitiness, note of spiciness in the aroma follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty-cheesy character, with an alcoholic punch, fruity notes of candied pineapple, with a faint hoppy accent, leading towards a lingering bitter dryness finish.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2006
This beer was so good, not because of the high alcool % but the taste was a mixture of all kinds of sensations in one. The probleme is that they do not make it often enough.

Bu au Mondial de la Bière 03. Très chaleureuse, plaine de saveur et un goût légèrement épice. Je n’étais pas mort raide!

2004. Robust, spicey malt nose, light amber, billowy white head. Nice malty beginning, some citrus hops too. Nicely balanced, medium bodied, tongue tingle. A real treat!
