Ughsmash (7428) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Bottle BB 2008. Poured a rather bright golden with a 1" cap of white head... lots of visible carbonation. Significant amount of lighter fruits (Chardonnay grapes come to mind), spices, and Belgian-style yeast in the aroma. Flavors of clove, apricot, and musty yeast. Carbonation was higher than I’d like, which didn’t allow the flavors to flow so well. Finish was lengthy and carried through the flavors well. Solid brew.

341ml bottle. Hazy amber, effervescent bubbles and a foamy white head. Flavors are bread, honey, vanilla, pear, orange, apple, almonds, alcohol and spices with floral notes. Medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture.

RafeAU (558) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle in San Diego. Classic tripel yeast fruity esters. A little sweet, low bitterness, how I personally like a tripel, but got a little cloying towards the end. Still, a nice tripel.

Smells sweet and fruity. Pours a cloudy gold/orange colour. Thick head that disappears quickly. Taste is sweet. Absent of alcohol. Lots of carbonation. No lingering aftertaste. Overall I was very impressed. I purchased as part of a holiday mixer pack, and I will again. Awesome beer. Highly recommend. MB The Beer Bearon

Franckg (654) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
Robe dorée légèrement trouble, aucun col de mousse. Dentelle inexistante. Arômes de poire, pomme, levures, coriandre, citron, banane et sucre résiduel. Légèrement épicé, complexité à revoir. Beaucoup d’esters fruités. En bouche, beaucoup de levures, poire, pomme, coriandre, abricot. Alcool un peu trop présent et à la limite désagréable par sa sensation épicé. Carbonatation trop élevé également. Goût intéressant mais malheureusement gâché par ces deux lacunes.

Don de Dieu is French for "Gift of God" and Unibroue is apparently French for "brewer that likes pretentious names but can get away with it because their beers are legitimately great." Er, so that’s a bit of a loose translation. However, Don de Dieu is not a loose translation of the Belgian Abbey ale. It’s golden and effervescent. Sweet bread-like malts, spices, subtle fruitiness, and a bit of earthy hops show up in the smell and taste profiles. Body is silky soft and the 9% ABV is covered nicely. While it’s more simple than you’d expect, the execution is lovely. This is a Unibroue product to the core.

Nice hay color with white topper. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste of barnyard with orange peel. Nice carbonation and short alcohol aroma at end.

theOptimator (346) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Aroma is is deep effervescent lemon with sweet malt with some yeasty breadyness. Appearance is hazy dark yelow with large frothy white head. Taste is sweet malt candied sugar, lemon, peach, apricot, yeast. Some spicy hopping. Palate is light but thick on the tongue. Overall an excellent beer. For the price Unibroue can’t be touched. Not your typical Golden Strong but still excellent.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2015
It has a heavy scent of wheat and fruit. The taste is impressively rich and contains orange, freshly cut cereal, pineapple, peach and coriander. A very sweet but never dominant flavor characterizes the mouth feeling until a pleasant citrus / sour aftertaste.

Light amber, tall, white and explosive foam (careful opening the bottle). Intense, alcoholic and yeasty nose. Light body, weak flavor, hot mouthfeel, avg length. Sweet balanced somewhat by acidity but low in bitterness. Flavor is alcoholic, malty, slightly citrusy but not hoppy. Unbalanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
