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!

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark golden color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of hibiscus notes and tart Feijoa notes is not as enticing as I was expecting. Taste was dryer then expected with quite a bit of tart Feijoa notes with also quite a bit of hibiscus notes. Body was quite full with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Off-balanced ingredient with low drinkability meant a deception in this case.

Great flowery smell coming off of the beer. The look is cloudy with a good pour. Beer is a little tart but it is welcome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. My wife and I were excited to try this-- we used to eat fresh feijoa fruit in New Zealand. This play as a very solid, estery triple with an added juiciness and a tart kick at the end. Extremely drinkable!

First release, in case there is another. Foremost, I rarely, if ever, comment on the packaging - the graphic design on this bottle is really appealing. Pretty with white clouds and baby blue accented urban outline with ethereal rays pulling me in. Pours apricot with etched surface whites and brilliant clarity. Smells of hibiscus, peppercorn, manure, some sweet banana and some hints of plastic. Flavor is tart, foreign, some bitter, some alcohol, some pear juice and lemons with a hint of herbal tea and a little lotion. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a off wet finish. This is an odd beer, and takes a while to warm up to, but is worth a spin, and maybe worth a revisit.

BrewMoose (82) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Poured into a tulip glass. Small white head. Nice lacing. Wonderful funky citrus aroma. Has some tartness that helps to open the beer up. Almost a passion fruit flavor. As it warms up there is more body and complexity. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at the Livermore Saloon. It pours orange with a white head. The aroma is huge tropical fruit juice…mango, lime, orange and pineapple. The flavor is pretty much the same with big pineapple, mango, orange sweetness. Full bodied and only hints of bready, spicy yeast character in the finish. Good beer if you like fruit juices. I enjoyed it.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Une bouteille à 20 piastres bue avec Patrick. Un liquide dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez fruité avec des notes suris. Une drôle de liquide avec des saveurs particulières qui sont bien difficiles à définir mais qui ne me plaisent pas beaucoup. Drôle de Triple.

On tap at Stubbys MKE beer week 2013. Golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty with mild citrus and floral notes. Taste if farmhouse meets wine bottle with yeast, tannins and some malt.

SlovakSniper (3219) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2013
Une bouteille bue sur la rue Laurier. Un liquide foncé que j’imagine être doré. Difficile de bien voir lorsque l’endroit est feutré. Je vois très bien la formation mousseuse : l’anneau qui flotte dans le verre est bien chétif. Le nez arbore des parfums de fruits acidulés. L’hibiscus me donne toujours une impression de jeune framboise. Quant au feijoa, patente que je ne connais point, je peux facilement penser qu’il contribue à ennoblir ces arômes légèrement aiguisées par la fleur nationale de la Corée du Sud. Outre ce bouquet particulier et intéressant, je pense reconnaître une base de blé suri et quelques notes douces qui se manifestent ici et là. En bouche, c’est un peu la confusion. Les saveurs sont épicées, parfois aigres, délicatement sucrées et finement piquantes. Au palais, je reconnais un corps léger avec des bulles qui bougent bien et une texture sans doute huileuse. En finale, je ne peux qu’être ravi par le travail de la fleur et du fruit : les tissues de ma langue apprécient cette intéressante sécheresse. En résumé, une triple bien étrange et peu étonnante de la part de brasseurs habitués à l’exercice de style.

Bottled sample from Happy Harrys in Grand Forks. Yellow colour. Tart tasting up front. Somewhat bitter finish. Very enjoyable.
