What a fine beer. It is really a very strong wit. While lacking the subtlety of some of its style due to its triple fermentaion and the high abv, its flavor is great. It hits you in the face with taste but hey thats what makes it so memorable. It comes in a large bottle with a cork. A good thing as if you drink it by yourself a half a bottle will start a pleasent buzz. I bet a full bottle would get you sloshed. As most beer drinkers who would buy this drink for taste, the cork should be welcomed as it lets you enjoy it over a few days. great stuff!

It could have just been a bad day, but this is the BEST beer I’ve ever had.

Bottled. Deep and rich golden colour. This unfiltered beer brings notes of high quality spices (probably the same used in La Fringante & La Fin du Monde). Its high alcohol due to triple fermentation (9% north american edition, 8.6% European edition) is outstandingly well hidden. It really is God’s gift.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Wonderful wheat taste. Coriander and similar spices. An amped-up Belgian style wheat.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2002
One of the best beers out there. Sparkling golden colour with very resistant white lacy head. Rich malty aroma with a hint of spice. Flavour is complex and the beer is super smooth for the complexity.

second best only to the anniversary beer by unibroue. Not too sweet and not bitter. Enough alcohol to sneak up on you if you don't pay attention to the alcohol percentage.

This is an amazing beer. Very sweet, with fruity notes and some spicy undertones. Very little head and a dark gold color. Very pretty, but lacking head pretty much altogether. Try this wonderful beer. It’s worth every penny.

Truly a ’Gift of God.’ In my mind, the pinnacle of Unibroue, which is no small effort. I could go on about the mouthfeel, the appearance, the palate, but the flavor is where this beer is truly world class. If you’re a belgian fan and haven’t tried it Don de Dieu yet (perhaps out of snobbery that it isn’t from Belgium?), get over yourself and buy a bottle.

Ale de type triple/ 9% d’alcool/ Blanche aux reflets dorés/ saveurs de fruits et de houblon à peine perceptibles/ Arôme dégageant un soupçon d’épices
