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!

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.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle with a best before of March 2014. Pours with a clear golden orange hue with a medium sized, fizzy offwhite head that fades. Aromas are tart and slightly tropical, melon and papaya, peppery alcohol and phenol, dry apple and leather. Smells a touch sweet. Flavors are quite tart, grainy, fruity, hibiscus, melon, Belgian yeast. Quite a bit of acidity. Earthy and slightly waxy fruit flavors with noticeable alcohol. Lively carbonation, medium bodied with a tart finish. Not bad, I think it might drink a bit better than the score I ended up with.

baraciisch (2823) - California, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Golden orange in color... Citrus and lemon zest aroma... Flavor is Belgian yeast, unripened citrus, floral notes... Palate is slightly yeasty and tangy... Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (9011) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours light copper with an attractive beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour fruity caramel malt flavor with a lingering hibiscus note. This is a pretty strange version of Belgian Tripel.

poisoneddwarf (2269) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bomber. Pours filtered copper (not the usual golden I was expecting) with a medium white head that collapses into a skiff of foam and ring of big bubbles somewhat quick. Aroma is doughy, trademark New Belgium earthiness, berries (or is that the feijoa? not sure what it tastes like). Taste is pretty sour--weird for a tripel--and dry. The Belgian yeast in here makes it resemble a tripel a little bit, but this mostly tastes like a sour ale. Not bad.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Appearance was clear orangish gold with diminishing creamy off white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are strang for a triple, some sweet malt backbone with tropical fruits abound then wine like farmhouse yeasts, alcohol well hidden. Taste was dominated by bitter mango, orange, cherry, hibacious then barnyard funky yeasts. Alcohol not noticeable with slightly triple malt backbone. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting bitter fruity yeasty finish. Triple not, fruit sour brew yes, something amiss here.

Suttree (6046) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Clear copper, nice spongy white head. Fruity, spicy aroma. Flavor is an odd combination of mango and honeydew melon, which I assume is Feijoa? Also, a lot of white wine, like a Savignon Blanc or something like that. Seems much lighter than 9%.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Not typically a fan of tripels so I was somewhat excited when this one poured a burnt tangerine/chestnut instead of the 10 karat reminiscent of the style. Unfortunately, didn’t really enjoy this either! Nothing offensive. This one is all Feijoa (like I’ve had Feijoa before and could distinguish it from any other tropical fruit). To me, loads of papaya, guava, mango and citrus accompanied by some caramel and light toffee. Not as cloyingly sugary or sweet as others. Also a hint of banana, some peppery spice. The ingredients just aren’t playing well together.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Pour is deep copper with a bright white head and grey lacing. Big banana, spice, biscuit, dark fruits, caramel, and alcohol in the aroma. Taste is dark fruits, light spice, licorice, a hint of banana, pears, and white grapes with a light alcoholic burn on the finish. Slick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Not a bad , beer but really not a tripel at all and not even as good as their tripel in the normal line-up.
