Don de Dieu means "Gift of God". The Don de Dieu was the ship of Samuel de Champlain as he was commissioned by the King of France to explore the vast and inhospitable land called America.

Malt flavors and nice fruity texture. Another winner from Unibroue.

Unfortunately this brew is far too yeasty. Notes of citrus and wheat as well.

Medium gold color, slightly cloudy, with a large white head. Aroma of yeast, bubblegum, and maybe banana. Taste is sweet with some spices. Effervescent. Alcohol is well hidden.

The strong alcohol content is extremely well hidden. It was totally unexpected that this beer had 9 % ABV. A bit yeast and wheat in the palate. A little fruity and acidic. Valid head.

I may have been to harsh in my Unibroue 10 rating but nothing besides the Trois (a top 5 beer for me) has blown me away by this brewery. Dont get me wrong I've liked everything I've tried but outside of Trois nothing seems that great. Aroma is faint. Appearance is golden with the usual large foamy head typical of Unibroue beer. Smooth taste with a hint of oranges and peaches. Quite spicy and citrusy. Good easy drinking beer but not quite running with the big dogs of the Belgian Strong Ale class. I'll say its good but not great. Big plus - it hides the alcohol well.

Good mellow Belgian. This is certainly one of the best breweries in the world. THis beer appeared weak at first, but really stuck around on my tongue. Sweet, yeasty, and a bit citrusy.... yum!

I am not a Belgian Strong ale fan, but this is not a bad beer, in fact as strong ales go this would be in my top 5.

What a tough decision I had to make for my first beer of the day Don De Dieu, Allagash Grand Cru, Fish Tale Poseidon Imperial Stout or last but not least Fish Tale Leviathan Barley Wine. Well, I opted for Don De Dieu, but what the hell I do for the second beer of the day?

As the beer sets in its especially chosen glass the color is a bemused lemon yellow with the head elephantine In size, creamy in consistency and the color a brilliant white, as it dissolves, a fine sheet of lace forms to conceal the glass. Big hit of yeast at the front, slightly malt sweet, a bit of pineapple, crisp, fresh and a real treat for the senses with the start rich in malt, somewhat sweet, the top middling in the feel upon the palate. Finish has a perseverant hop spiciness, the acidity pointful, quite dry aftertaste that lingers long and lovingly. Another fine beer from a “World Class” brewery, that is a long time favorite. .

Gold color with a lasting and bubbling head welcomes you to this beer. First taste is a blast of flavors that are sweet and maybe a little on the tart side. Smooth to sip this flavor filled ale. Dust off the fancy glass and relax with this one.

Glowing orange in color and hazy. A quarter inch of head lingers for the duration. Strongly yeasty aroma with hints of banana and clove. Soft and clean on the palate. Refreshingly tart and slightly fruity.
