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!

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Tap at beer Study. Lightly hazy orange golden with small white head. Nose is super ester-y, light pepper, dough, watery. Flavor is fruity, rose petals, other florals, lemon juice. Nose is straight esters and the flavor is super fruity and floral, lightly acidic lemon which must be this mysterious fruit. Strange that you get none of the tart fruits in the nose. Weird.

22 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this is a bit sweet, syrupy, with banana estery phenols. Light fruity, lightly floral. Not much else. Transparent copper-orange body with a medium, fairly rapidly dissipating cream-colored head. Starts with a tart, sour, puckering fruitiness that I did not expect at all. This gives it a bit of an acidic mouthfeel, which tastes a bit metallic/battery like. There is a sweet chewy belgian triple to back it up nicely, but a little too estery. An interesting beer, that seems to grow on me. I would just like to try this faijoa fruit juice straight up.

Draft at The Oak Cafe. Pours a clear light orange color with a small head that fades quickly. The aroma is funky and intense. Smells like very tart fruit mixed flowers and spices. It’s really hard to drink. Like drinking intense sweet tarts mixed with flowers. Moderately sweet up front but quickly turns intensely sour and floral. Finish is fruity, floral, and tart. Very extreme, tart beer that’s just not my thing.

Brouwerij (918) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a finger of white head. Settles to cap in minutes with some sparse lacing. Aroma is belgian, fruity, moderately sour/tart, tropical fruity, and floral. Flavor is fruity, mango, pineapple, mildly sour, hibiscus. Mild belgian ale background but the fruitiness of the feijoa is dominant. However the fruity tart character is pleasant. Alcohol is quite well masked. Soft carbonation, medium body, crisp texture and a smooth finish. A fruity, mildly tart, interesting tripel.

22 picked up today at Home Brew Stuff in Garden City.. Poured into my HotD goblet... clear light golden brew... 1" off white head.. short lasting.. no real lacing.. Nose is very tart... underripe guava and a big hibiscus presence (lemony/cranberry).. grainy pale malts come in under the radar and deliver clovey phenols.. some pepper with warmth. Flavor is all over the map for me... Very tart fruitiness that is dominant and doesn’t let up until the finish.. Belgian qualities develop mid palate and show slight pear esters and more clove and peppery notes... The Feijoa presence is too present to make this a very enjoyable brew.. And the hibiscus is just too tart/cranberry.. almost tannic grapeskin with warmth. Body is medium/lite and shows a decent carbonation..

Pretty deep orange with some lacing. Big tripel nose, some banana and spice, but mostly like a flowery perfume. Nice tripel middle but interesting tart fruit up front and then again in the finish. Some pucker in the back of the tongue. Nice combo.

drjay44 (2608) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2013
750 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled off white head, with some lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is light resin, pineapple, hints of strawberry......taste is resin, pineapple, light sweet, finishing with a light resin hop bite....mouth feel light of medium, slightly sticky, moderately astringent, carbonation adds a light tingle. This is more of a Saison than an Abbey Triple. The Feijoa adds all sorts of unusual aromas and flavors that are out of place in the proclaimed style. This is one of those experiments that completely distorts judging beers. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

Love it. It goes from funky tart to tripel back to funky tart. Really nice. Pours a darker amber with a white head. Aroma is subtle hints of yeast and banana with an fermented funky fruit aroma. Some might think this is flaw, but I think this is what makes this brew intriguing. Taste is somewhat tart, sour and funky with a distinct tripel character with notes of banana and floral elements. Finishes dry with a slight tartness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

light gold with healthy white head. Flavor/aroma is fruity (almost tart fruit) with a light berry hop flavor and touch of bitterness. Mildly spicy yeast. Delicious and drinkable. Got me a little tipsy at lunch here.

Darker pour with loads of tart fruit motes. Taste is tart. Body is thick and syrupy. Decent beer, but not a good triple.
