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!

Very much a ruit beer more than a tripel. It is a GORGEOUS color. Flavor is tart and very vinous, the tripel flavor comes form a nice malt bill and belgian yeast.

Bottle. Amber beer with a dark cream head. Earthy and fruity aroma with yeast. Tart fruit flavor with hibiscus and yeast. Medium bodied. Tart fruit lingers with yeast and light malt.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle shared by John on Sunday morning after TAP-NY, in his hotel room. While Ed did not have on any pants. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft banana, toffee and some gentle floral aromas. Spicy and tangy. Tastes a bit like the flavor that occurs when you drink orange juice after brushing your teeth. Tart and tangy. Warming alcohol on the finish. Very interesting.

DuffMan (6460) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
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!

marcus (6318) - 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.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Pour from a bottle at New Belgium. Weird how all other Lips of Faith were on tap except the collaborations with DDC and Vivant. Anyway, this one pours a cloudy golden color with a small but lasting white head. Citrus and tropical fruits, caramel and pale malts, mild spice, sugar, and a good dose of herbs. Definitely a hoppy tripel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. I couldn’t bring myself to go 8 in the aroma or flavor, but there’s an x-factor to this one I couldn’t put my finger on and really liked.

Scopey (6149) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle many thanks to Adam. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is sweet..hay, straw, spice, melon, pear, apple, white grape, icing sugar and toast. The taste is white grape, vinous, melon, pear, straw, hay pleasant tartness, alcohol warmth and a touch of spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty interesting stuff. A lot of tart white wine stuff going on.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of bubble gum, ammonia, detergent, cotton candy, pepper. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A horrible creation. Artificial and chemical nose is truly disgusting. Sour and dirty flavor experience almost prompts expectoration. Shows pretty much zero effort. Sheesh, how low can NB go?

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.

bottled, orange color with white head, aroma and flavor of organic orange juice that sat in the sun, I am not a big fan of these odd blends. Wish it was more tripel like
