Couleur blonde trouble avec un mince col blanc. Aromes de céréales, raisins blanc, vin blanc, agrumes, épices. Ca fais changement un peu de leur autre produit. Correct!

loco_gallego (148) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Instable à l’ouverture.Ambrée orangée, voilée. Mousse blanche efferverscente. Au nez sucrée-fruitée, levures, légèrement épicée. En bouche plutôt sucrée sur les fruits, je dirais abricot. Très légèrement acide-citrus. Bien pétillante et sèche en fin de bouche, type Champagne. Légère amertume.

Slipstream (2076) - USA - DEC 11, 2014
The very tight cork on this took some effort to remove. This looks like a Belgian ale, with its big, foaming lid on lambent, butterscotch pour. The aroma is yeasty and lightly fruity to start. It tastes tangy, sweet, and rich, with flavors of golden raisins and hefeweizen, plus a little coriander. There is a cidery note in there too. It is a "triple wheat" with spices, according to the label. At 9% it is more potent than it seems at first. The flavors clash a little, but it is still quite good overall.

jh773 (171) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Hazy brown orange, large very fizzy head. Smell is cork, earth, light fruit notes, cereal and yeast. Taste is fizzy and sweet; spicy, bread, banana, apricot, creamy citrus. I feel like a medieval king drinking this.

ronaldtheriot (1337) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 7, 2014
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 (57) - 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 (1503) - 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 (357) - 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.
