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!

Jonathan_E (21) - Orange, California, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Poured from a twenty-two ounce bottle into a Riedel Overture beer glass. An overwhelming amount of subtle nuances from nose to palate, starting with a perfume of rose and orange blossom water, lightly roasted almond and peanut, then rounding into melted butter on grits. Scant head with hairline lacing, but shines in color that vacillates between dented gold and skillfully cut ruby gemstone. The palate is akin to solving a puzzle as it does not reveal itself with facility. Eventually struck upon raisins in rice pudding, caramel popcorn, fresh berry sweet tea, with an undertone of cherry blossom petal. Very drinkable, with texture, flavor, and acidity comparable to a cranberry vinaigrette. A beautiful experiment overall that requires time and patience to understand.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Pours to a glowing effervescent amber body with a creamy airy white head. Slow carbonation adds to the sexiness. Aroma is tripel yeasts, hibiscus, and something lightly tart. Almost perfumey, but very light. Complex and balanced. Flavor is sweet but not cloying. Tripel yeasts, flowers, and subtle tartness. Very good blending of flavors. Medium body with nice levels of carbonation. Not overly so. This beer paired perfectly with a taleggio cheese.

Sampled on 3/17/2013. This Belgian Triple pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet, floral and tart, with some yeast and a touch of funk. A medium bodied triple. The malts are fruity and sweet, The hops are earthy and herbal. Decent carbonation. This is kind of a weird beer, it has some tartness and some pineapple (feijoa?) and some definite hibiscus flavors. Its kind of a mess, but it kind of works. Lots of sweetness, lots of tartness with some herbal stuff as well. Overall it’s a nice tart ale. Definitely different. Mouthfeel is full and round Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart.

gorditoabd (634) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bomber from Bev4Less. Pours almost the exact same amber as the New Albion Ale redux I just drank by Sam Adams. Little white foam is quickly gone. Aroma is somewhat malt forward, but mostly understated, with just a touch of the floral qualities I might have expected. Taste is an improvement, but only in the early palate. Then it just sort of starts to go nuts...and by nuts I mean ALL OVER THE FREAKING PLACE. Holy hell, there is cidery funky sweet tartness, cloying floral quality... almost as if there were some super-sweet pineapple guava in this thing??? Anyway, it’s drinkable (barely) and different... so I’m mostly a fan. If my palate survives, I’ll be interested to see how it does as it warms... Otherwise, meh.

flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle pours orange-amber with a thin white head. Aroma is floral and lots of fruit-esters. Although the taste begins with the characteristic sweetness of Belgian yeast, the flavor is dominated by hibiscus and sour fruit. Aftertaste is acidic, lemony. A very interesting take on a tripel, but a bit too much going on for my tastes.

22. Pours a cloudy dark amber with bright medium amber edges and a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of sheeting lace. Big tangy floral and fruity nose, a little funky too. Smells pretty overripe--the floral notes are dense and syrupy, and the fruit has that pulpy decadent smell to it like it’s so ripe it’s going soft. The funk, well, that could be any of several factors I suppose. There’s a bit of egg yolk there. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Tastes like a mix of pink peppercorns, caramel syrup that got superheated, and some carbonic bite. Everything is trying to be louder than everything else in this beer, and it gets out of balance because of it. Knocking out that egg yolk and giving things some room to breathe instead of stepping all over each other would help a lot.

Pailhead (6404) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists peaches, hibiscus, spice, and faint apple. It pours a transparent copper with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of peaches and light apple. The finish has tart peach/lemon with light hibiscus. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

thegreenrooster (4003) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pour is a clear copper with a small whtie head. Aroma is sweet, tart and some citrus. Flavor is again sweet but tart with some citric fruit juice in the backround. FInish is quite herbal with some sour apple like tartness. Don’t know what makes the a triple other than the alcohol. It’s more of a semi sour fruit ale. I have never heard of feijoe fruit before this so I can really tell if it brings anything to the beer.

monk191 (1750) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2013
A very good sour. Pours a beautiful orange amber color, with a thick white head. Smells of apples and tropical fruit. Taste is sweet of front, green apples, and finishes sour, but not overly so. Best sour beer I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
