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

Nuffield (3711) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Heavy body, both visually and in the palate, with a building sweetness that isnít my cup of tea, though it is better (surprisingly) as it loses some of the carbonation. The flavor has the floral note and orange marmelade but it also has a rounded English ale + cider sensibility. The alcohol is a bit noticeable but not too bad. I have mixed feelings about this, but I definitely think this is original and interesting. Bottle.

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Aroma is a tart cherry with a bit of booze. Taste is very atypical of a tripel. Itís slightly maltier while still being dry, lots of tart and a bit of cherry.

TheBeerGod (5309) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with a tall, frothy white head. Aroma is flowery and sweet with fruit notes, caramel, candy notes, grains and malt. Taste is sharply sweet with more ripe fruit notes, flowers, candied fruit, caramel, herbal notes, sweet malt, grains and yeast. Soft booziness throughout. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more flowers, ripe fruits, candy, caramel notes, herbal notes, sweet malt, toasted grains, booze and cake.

On tap at Smoke & Barrel. Really excellent fruit character through the flavor and nose. Pineapple guava is quite striking. Light-medium body. Dry finish.

johnnyoski (444) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Bomber. Pours a clear amber color with a thin, but lasting off-white head. Nice floral aroma with hints of citrus, grass and biscuit. Comes off as advertised, a mix of floral tea with a tart, lemon beer. Average carbonation with a sticky texture. Not bad but the tartness is a little over the top.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bomber from Samís, Durham. Throughout this beer, I kept getting the impression that it was just shy of being really good. But the degrees of just-shyness did seem to magnify the extant faults. If there had been slightly less feijoa and hibiscus (the latter far more potent than in something like SH Saison des Fleurs) and more base tripel coming through (i.e. just a bit less vinous and with more dry qualities) it would have rocked. As is, I could only question the quality of the base beer (so obscured, who actually knows if my supposition is worth a damn) and regret the seemingly tossed-together additions.

brokensail (11231) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Clear orange pour with a tall white head. Nose is surprisingly tart, from what I can only assume is the feijoa. Very strong floral component, a bit of grape, sweet sugar and malt, and hints of banana. The flavor is rather tart as well. Lemon zest, what Iím guessing is some feijoa, sugar, light alcohol, biscuit, and grape. A nice perfumey quality to this beer, too.

wlajwl (3996) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Aroma is spices, a hard to describe fruit element and a nutty quality. The flavor is citrus, berries, spices, a mildly grainy texture, malts and a very tart finish.

Concealer (824) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours from the bomber a clean copper color with a caramel-white head that dissolves quickly. A big fruit aroma in the nose with some spice and yeast and floral hints. Tastes are tart fruit, sweet pineapple, mild spice and bread. The mouth feel is somewhat light and bubbly. At 9% itís hard to argue this beer is well worth itís flavor and price but it is so unique I was shock my first glass. I like it.

Ughsmash (7172) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Bomber. Poured a lovely shade of lighter orangey-golden with a shorter, spotty white head. The aroma picked up lots of tart berries and fruits plus floral notes over honeysuckle and a kiss of redder fruit meat.. more floral as it warmed up, along with a solid Belgian yeasty character. The flavor found tart berries and floral notes throughout.. fruit, honey, and bready notes supported.. finished with tasty, interesting tart fruit, clovey yeast, and building, honey-fueled warmth.. tasty and interesting. Medium-bodied with a good level of tartness on the palate.. a few too many sugars on the back, but it was still very enjoyable.
