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.

hopscotch (9509) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Draft... Sparkling clear, amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good lacing. Nose of apple, pear, banana and spice. The flavor matches the aroma. "Over-the-top" hopped for a Belgian style tripel. Fuzzy fruit flavor. Full-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Medium-length, bitter, dry finish. If you enjoy traditional Belgian style tripels, this one may not be for you. Although Im not a big fan of the style, I am a big fan of this beer.

asheft (2549) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2005
This beer was a hazy brownish copper with a thin, lacy head. The aroma was difficult to detect in the smokey bar and because the beer was served too cold (I gave it 5/10 to be fair--Ill have to re-rate). The flavour was really nice with obvious banana and higher alcohols. It was also woody and malty and a little buttery with medium bitterness. Medium body and warming.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2005
Orange-amber, very slightly hazy hue is mounted by a small white head that fades slowly, but completely. Lots of fruit esters in the nose (banana, oranges) over a liquorous floral background. Some spiciness I cant pinpoint, but mostly herbal. Very strong alcohol wise, very warming and perhaps too much so for my liking combined with the high sweetness level. Theres quite a noble hop dryness/bitterness kicking in toward the end, but it doesnt cut the alcohol and quickly tames the palate. One to give you headaches after a few glasses.

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2004
This is a complex product that is sweet with a buble gum, sugary aroma. The alcohol seems rather heavy at a certain point giving it a warming effect. The sugar tends to remind me of some Achel.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2004
Nice hazy golden body topped with an average white creamy head that leaves a good lacing. Amazing malty aroma with pleasant fruity, sweet, flowery, and herbal notes. Taste is relatively mild. It is mainly fruity (peach) and sweet, and has some tiny hints of alcohol. More than decent bittersweet finish with superb warming effect. Very good Tripel.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2004
Beautifull golden-orange bottle of beer that poured a lasting big bubbly head and a few floating bits of yeast too. This one was aged from April 2003 and it was worth the wait - another solid beer from my new favourite Dieu. Spicy (some coriander I think) and yeasty and hoppy aromas lead to a floral and fruity flavour, with some mint emerging after a moment - nice! Alcohol noticeable but not overly so, nice mouthfeel and fairly quick finish. Good stuff.

radiomgb (2364) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2004
1.5 year old bottle aged at the brewpub. Murky orange in colour with yeast floaties. Aroma was of yeast, citrusy hops, flowers and spices. Flavour was yeasty, citrusy, floral, some alcohol. Large body, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes really dry. Very well done.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2004
Aged for one year and three months, bottle. Cloudy golden color with a thin head. Citrus and yeast aroma. Sweet, citrus and yeast flavor. Sweet finish that leaves a chalky feeling. Medium body and liquorous mouthfeel.

TimE (3340) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 30, 2004
An interesting mix of oranges and lightly roasted malt through out leading to a mildly spicy rich malty finish.
