Don De Dieu has a medium, off-white head, a brilliant, bubbly, orange appearance, with lots of bubble streams, many white, fluffy chunks, and moderate lacing left on the glass. The aroma is sweet, very sugary, spicy, and of light fruits. Taste is of figs, dates, fruit cake, bready malt, various spices, and white cake icing. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and prickly, and Don De Dieu finishes champagne dry and quite drinkable. RJT

whitehotg8 (78) - Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Shared with my wife. Beautiful golden hazy color with a frothy white head. Aromas of sweet fruits, belgian yeast, white sugar and mild spiciness. Taste is heavenly with wheat, grass, yeast, sweet malt and mild spice. This is honestly one of the best Belgians I have had. Try it.

zizzybalubba (1564) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Hazy, yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of tangerine, lemon zest, and ginger. Taste is lightly tart with notes of lemon and orange zest and is complimented with Belgian yeast, ginger, and white pepper. The clean citrus lifts any lingering bitterness from the palate. Very nicely done.

rayaron (536) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Hazy light yellowish-golden with quickly diminishing small white head. The aroma is soapy, sweet fruitiness (peach, banana), yeasty. Medium sweet flavor, fruity (banana, some cherry, apricot), very spicy, yeasty, light alcohol note, sour-sweet finish. Medium carbonation, medium-bodied.

Pours with an enormous head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Flavor is sweet brandy. Only knock is the metallic aftertaste. Very good.

maximet (119) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Cloudy dark yellow with a small white head. Honey, cereal sweetness, herbal, very complex. Taste is very sweet, a little light. Slick texture with a lively carbonation, a little abrupt finish. High drinkability.

An incredibly strong ABV beer for its light, fruity taste. As an IPA drinker, this beer provides the buzz without the heavy taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

remice2 (151) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
bière légèrement orangée,arômes de banane, pain , pomme verte et d’épices. En bouche c’est bien malté,levure typique d’Unibroue notes de bananes levure et de poivre, légé aspect d’acidité rappelant la pomme verte.Peut pétillante mais très facile a boire, belle chaleur d’alcool en final. belle bière très efficace.

slowrunner77 (6576) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"the nose and flavor are dominated by a soft yeastiness, and a not so soft spice & clove presence. tight carbonation, nice mouthfeel, slightly alcoholic finish. overall, it’s another good, but not great entry. worth a try. comparable to a strong weizen or good dunkelwizen minus the maltiness."

Beachmaster (206) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy light orange, with a medium fluffy white head that fades quickly, leaving good lacing. Nose is fruit, cloves, bananas. Taste is typical Belgian-fruit, malt, and that peppery Unibroue finish. Delicious.
