Bottle at World of Beer in Land O Lakes. Pours a clear golden yellow with a mid-sized white head. Aroma is very interesting with citrus and yeast notes plus quite a bit of funk. Flavor has a lot of tartness up front with a touch of sweetness and followed by more tart/sourness in the finish. Mouthfeel is pretty dry with an almost white wine like feel to it.

Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is fruity and a little funky, can definitely tell it will be tart. Flavor is tart as expected, some apple flavors. Finishes rather dry.

Bomber. Not a bad aroma. Some yeast some tart fruit smells. Can't taste anything weird until it leaves your mouth. Better than a tripel since I'm not a big fan. A little tart which is a nice change of pace. Try when you get bored of the stouts and ipa's.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is a sparkling clear copper color with a small, fizzy, white head which is mostly diminishing and leaves no lace. The nose is pleasant enough, soft herbal and floral, woodsy, light esters, doughy yeast. The flavor is much fruitier (not sure what feijoa tastes like), guava and apricot, still woodsy, slightly yeasty, and flower petals. The palate is lively, more than moderate, and sticky? The finish is somewhat bland with most of the flavors vanishing quickly leaving fruit and flowers. Decent attempt at an adjunct-laden beer but the fruit really masked the strong tripel beer. The hibiscus was a nice addition, and the beer drank very well for the ABV. The appearance was awful and the sticky mouthfeel was way out of place. I expected more from a Dieu du Ciel collaboration.

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% it’s hard to argue this beer is well worth it’s flavor and price but it is so unique I was shock my first glass. I like it.

It smells lite and pleasant, on the sweeter side.... The flavor is overly sweet covering any flavor that I would enjoy... Minimal to no malt character... Just juicy sweetness.
