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!

marcus (7142) - 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.

Ferris (6745) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 Draft - Hay and yeast. Hazy pale gold with a thin head. Honey lemon hay and sweet yeast. A normal trippel on the sweet side.

swoopjones (6629) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle, golden orange pour. Fruity aroma, some fruit I am aware of feijoada perhaps. White wineiness, touch of tartness. Fruit forward flavor, mumbled jumbled flavor. Doesn’t seem to work. Fruitiness out of wack.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a big herbal/floral note, citrus juice, doughy malt, Belgian yeast and an odd note I can only assume is the feijoa fruit. The flavor has much of the same with some grapefruit like bitterness to the finish. A different spin on a tripel.

"Awesome aroma, like a fruity white wine, with notes of hibiscus, pineapple, soft honeysuckle. Taste is almost as good, with hints of yeast as well, and well hidden alcohol. Really liked this one."

Ernest (6540) - 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.

BBB63 (6364) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bomber bottle and served in my big ole Karmeliet glass; Pours a nice golden hue with a mostly lasting frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of tart and tropical fruits, marzipan, caramel and pils malts, touch of white pepper. The taste is quite enjoyable with the tartness of the feijoa countering the normally found sweetness of the genre. Add the slight peppery and alcohol finish to make a nicely complex brew. The mouth feel is moderately slick and oily, a tad dry on the finish. Overall this beer exceeded my expectations, Mikey Likey.

b3shine (6213) - Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bomber to snifter (thanks Tmoney99). Looks solid; a completely transparent burnt-orange with off-white lacing. Smells of dough and Belgian yeast with notes of what I can only assume to be feijoa and a sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a subpar citrus zest mouthfeel. Not my thing.
