COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oh my God. It’s not only a reaction for drinking one of Dieu De Ciel’s beers, but a figurative translation of the Montreal brewery’s name. Just ask our brewmaster, he’s in heaven when drinking this collaborative tripel, inspired by Dieu De Ciel’s love of hibiscus and Belgians love of the obscure, hence our addition of tart feijoa fruit. Cheers!

Appearance: clear gold, bright white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: fruity and floral, with yeast and crackers. Taste: citrus and light tropical fruit, floral tartness, a bit of yeasty spice, and a weird herbal cracker malt note underneath. Finish: dry finish, with lingering herbal and floral notes over that odd toasty malt. Notes: Had one fresh, and one aged for a year. Complex and interesting, but not exactly my cup of tea.

It smells lite and pleasant, on the sweeter side.... The flavor is overly sweet covering any flavor that I would enjoy... Minimal to no malt character... Just juicy sweetness.

Tart but not overly sour. Taste of lemon, raspberry, and strong funky flavor. It's quite potent so drink careful. This is a craft masterbeer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Super beer with a tart profile from start to finsh. Semi sweet to balance the minimal hop bitterness.

Pours deep hazy gold into a tulip. White head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet hibiscus and tropical fruit aromas. Medium bodied with sweet/sour pineapple and kiwi fruit and mild pith upfront turning quite tart in the lasting finish. The best/only use of feijoa I’ve ever tasted... but becomes a little cloying after a while bringing it down a notch.

Bottle. Poured a light amber color with a white head. Very bitter floral aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a bitter and floral flavor. The hibiscus is very prominent.

Bomber with Zach and Brandon, tasted blindly, but guessed a sour, obviously not, pouts a burnt orange color with a small head. Nose is tart and sour with subtle yeast. Taste is bitter with some sour and tart notes. Alcohol buried in the taste. Finish is sour and tart, could pass for a sour to me. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head and aroma of spices and floral notes. Taste is tart, with fruits, floral notes, spices, and hops leading to a sweet, sour, fruity finish. Nice collab brew
