Dieu du Ciel Petit Détour
An IPA with a nice twist of refreshing tropical fruit taste. This is actually quite unique and much appreciated. Another well done beer by the masters from St Jerome.

Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel Brandy/Cognac
Dark black. Thin mocha head. I agree about watery fudge. More brandy than cognac. Not overly cognac (like Abyss - cognac). Warms up. Huge thx to yourilevesque!

Dieu du Ciel / The Alchemist Moralité
Aroma - Pineapple, orange, guava, honey Appearance - Yellowy orange, with significant sediment. Finger width of foam that recedes into a thin layer of bubbles, nice thick lacing. Taste - Mango, bitter orange rind, pellet hops. Finishes quite dry with lingering back palate bitterness. Palate - medium bodied and fairly effervescent, slightly slick. Overall - A decent American style IPA albeit a bit over rated. I was expecting more from one of the top 50 IPA’s here on rate beer. It would be better with less ABV and bitterness and more hop flavour / aroma IMO.

Dieu du Ciel Tamarindo Gose
C’est une blonde relativement limpide, à la carbonatation faible, texture mince et nez de fruits et de sel marin. La bouche est légèrement acidulée, un peu fruitée d’abord pour finir ensuite sur de délicieuses notes de céréales, avec un brin de salé pour couronner le tout. Ressemble à une kölsch, a le salé d’une gose et le strident d’une berliner nature. Une mouture vraiment intéressante pour une brasserie qui nous en a déjà montré d’autres.

Belle robe rosée. Nez élégant sur des notes fruitées, florales, sur un fond de céréales. Bouche fraîche et fuitée, une fine acidité et belle finale fraîche. Une bière de soif.

Dieu du Ciel L’Herbe à Détourne
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, malt, ljus torkad frukt, marsipan med toner av dill, peppar och kryddor. Stor sötma, något spretig (ångrar att jag inte lagrade denna något år), fruktig, fyllig, beska med smak av citrusskal och toner av grapefrukt. Gott!

Dieu du Ciel Exorciste
Bottle: Poured a clear blonde color ale with a nice large foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart and funky notes is pretty nice. Taste is a mix between some tart notes with limited acidity, loads of funky notes with some nice Brett notes also discernable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Solid sour beer with nice balance and actually better than the blackberry version.

Dieu du Ciel Tamarindo Gose
Bottle: Poured a clear yellow color ale with a medium white foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of light tart notes with some very subtle tamarind notes. Taste is a mix of light subtle salty notes with some tamarind notes and some tart notes with no acidity. Body is light with good carbonation. Quiet refreshing overall but the tamarind is hard to detect.

Now here is a gose that I like. I’m usually very touchy when it comes to salt. Pours light straw yellow with good carbonationa and a small white wisp. Aroma is light salt, grass and small tartness. Taste is light grassy and straw malt, dry palate and light tartness. Slight apple and yeast. Very enjoyable.

Dieu du Ciel Rescousse
Appearance: clear medium amber with short, short-lived off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grainy caramel, mild fruit, faint berry, light earth. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-light bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, sweetish mildly bitter finish. (3/5) A decent altbier, although the style’s not my favourite. Pleasantly well-balanced malt with a mild hoppiness that could nonetheless stand to be more pronounced. A bit too tame for me, but pleasant enough. (13/20)

Dieu du Ciel Tamarindo Gose
From trade with Youri. Darker yellow beer. Aroma is musty, some tamarind and malt. Medium bodied. Not very tart, or salty - both just barely noticeable. Too malty for the style. Tamarind is nice but doesn’t go w gose. Pleasant, but a little on the plain side.

Dieu du Ciel Route des Épices
Clear deep Amber hue under a rocky light beige head. Semisweet bready aroma that’s got a touch of rye and light black pepper. Big rye and black pepper pop on the beginning of the flavor, then melds quickly into a semisweet bready flavor that’s more bock-like than anything else. Mellow overall, only a little nuance at the start then gets one dimensional.

Dieu du Ciel Solstice d’Été aux Framboises
Nez qui pète littéralement la framboise archi fraîche. On trouve un fond vineux bien coupé par un raisin frais. La bouche est bien évidemment acide, la framboise perd un peu de son côté fruité pour révéler ses notes très acides. La finale est très sèche, la longueur de même.

Dieu du Ciel La Païenne
Appearance: clear pale straw with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin ring, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: crackery malt, light lemon and floral. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-light bitter. (6/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5) Fairly bland but also a bit elderly for the style. Probably my fault for not checking the date before buying, but it was in a cooler, so ultimately I’m not sure how much damage has been done by age. Might try again if I find it fresher. (12/20)

Bottle - thanks for bringing it back dirty Matt. Clear pale pee yellow with no head - not exactly appealing. Interesting wheat and brett combination, some mild lactic characteristics, vinegar, light oak, some macintosh apples, moderate+ carbonation and mild body, easy to drink, lots of fruit on the palate, somewhat tart, brett. easy to drink.

Bottle, thanks sneakychi. Aroma is espresso powder, roasted malts, ashes. Taste is fresh espresso, ashes, full-bodied, but surprisingly light. Very dry, minerally finish. Medium carbonation. Excellent Coffee Imperial Stout. It’s not too complex, but I like the dry espresso flavours and it just works.

Dieu du Ciel L’Herbe à Détourne
Bouteille 341ml, bottled 2016-03-07. Dorée sur un col épais blanc. Arôme au nez herbacé assez plaisant sur des effluves belges niveau levure, et un côté grains malt pils. Retrouve des flagrances plaisantes de tropical tout en gardant cette consonance belge. Palais est belge niveau levure et grains, pointe épicée, fleuri rappelant le sureau + malt pils. Léger fruité tropical en retrait, et sucre résiduel? Fini gardant une belle note de houblonnage à cru assez marqué de Citra. Belle réussite, mais je m’interroge sur la signification du nom de la bière.

Huge, dense just off-white head over fully (cold)hazed if bright orange beer. Citrus, orange,... (huge head hampers the perception). Light citrus, some orange, soft pepper, bit of vanilla and banana. False body, creamfilled and -texture, not really heavy. Aftertaste leaves a quite dry impression. Fresh, light.

341ml twist off bottle. Orange pour. Aroma is a bit meady, not sure on the age of this. FLavor is good enough, more kumquaty, not very bitter, malt is a touch caramel. It needs a bit of work.

Dieu du Ciel Aphrodisiaque
Pas noté cette bière encore? Il est temps! Un classique parmi les classiques au niveau des bières de microbrasserie du Québec. L’exemple parfait d’un chef d’oeuvre que l’on a tendance à oublier tellement elle est facile à trouver pour nous au Québec. Mais ne nous trompons pas : c’est bon en sacramouche cette bière! Je peux comprendre que certains amateurs de l’extérieur du Québec fassent des échanges de fous pour en obtenir. C’est un réel dessert : le chocolat mais surtout la vanille sont très, très, présents... tout cela sans que le résultat soit trop lourd. C’est comme un gros stout cochon mais sans le sucre superflu et l’alcool à 243% ABV : juste les saveurs agréables. Le seul défaut que je trouve, à chaque fois que j’en bois, c’est d’être légèrement trop mince. Ce n’est rien de dramatique, mais un corps plus rond lui irait bien. En résumé, un autre chef d’oeuvre d’une des meilleures brasseries du monde.

A Kolsch that a Kolner would be proud of! Great clear gold with a small white pillow. Aroma is lightly floral malts but earthy with a touch of hop. Taste is a great light sweet malt backing and a nice soft noble hop bitterness. I am taking this to my friends in Germany. for verification, but I would not be surprised to pick this up from a bar along the Rhine in Koln.

Wow, Jolie bière rubis, avec une mousse délicate. De loin la meilleure bière fruitée que j’ai bue cet été, les saveurs sont parfaites, le goût de framboise est incroyablement savoureux en compagnie de son acidité impeccablement bien balancé ! j’adore.

Dieu du Ciel Tamarindo Gose
Une bière blonde et claire, avec un doigt de mousse, avec une belle effervescence. Au nez le sel vole la vedette. C’est salé, très salé. L’acidité de cette bière vient uniquement en arrière-pensée. En bouche, c’est divisé en trois section. Il y a le côté céréalier d’une pils. L’acidité d’une bière sûre. Le sel d’une gose. C’est complet, mais en même temps on se demande s’il n’y aurait pas plus à avoir d’une bière? Le corps me semble un peu mince, mais c’est pas énorme comme reproche. La biere est bien - juste bien. Il manque juste un petit quelque chose. Je cherche encore le romarin.

Nose of cocoa and coffee, pours dark red with a brown head. Taste is light aciduous lika cocoa bean and with lots of malty coffee notes. Palate is really long lasting and remaining cocoa as significant taste. Even caramel of the darker type.

A 250ml pour on tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas into a Moeder Lambic snifter glass. It was a pitch black colour with a just less than two finger tanned head that had great retention and lacing. Very nice aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee bean. Tastes of dark chocolate truffles with vanilla and a light bitterness. Smooth, medium to light bodied with light carbonation. Overall it looks and smells great. Body is a bit on the light side, but it was smooth and well balanced. One of the best stouts out there.

C’est un plaisir de voir cette bière évolué d’été en été. Tantdis que j’ai parfois trouvé que le côté sûre et acidulé de cette bière était parfois trop puissant lors des été passés, la version de cette année est succulente et très bien balancé. Elle nous laisse découvrir son goût de framboise de façon franche tout en tranchant avec une acidité raffraîchissante !

Dieu du Ciel Isseki Nicho
Pours a thick brown bubbly head and has a dark brown almost black appearance. Good lacing. Much more hops in aroma than malts, sort of an earthy spiced hops with notes of citrus hops and grainy malts. Mild roasted malt flavours, chocolate, coffee and hints of caramel. A little sweet. Less hoppy flavour, mainly earthy hops, notes of nutty malts and toffee as well. Quite flavourful! Has a creamy mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Full bodied and some mouthcoating slickness. Has a mild bitterness in the finish, not offensive. Easy drinking, especially for a 9.5% abv beer.

Dieu du Ciel Pénombre
Pours a pretty good amount of brownish head and has a dark brown colour, fairly dull clarity. Aromas are sharp earthy hops balanced with roasted and toasty malts. Has spicy hop flavours with sweet toffee and chocolate maltiness. Some dry fruits (raisins), nuts and hints of caramel. Medium bodied mouthfeel, average carbonation and has a slight warming sensation. Slight bitterness in the finish, which is actually pretty nice. A well balanced black IPA, between hops and malts, and didn’t find one overpowering the other. Dieu du Ciel seems to never disappoint. Well, rarely.

Medium carbonation. Flavours are also quite yeasty with floral hops and grainy malts. sort of wheaty with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Some mild spices as well. Pretty sweet tasting. Good for as a taster but not a continuous chugger.

Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel
Bought back by Matt from Brouehaha in Quebec! Pitch opaque black-brown with tan fizzy watery head. Smell is sublimely coffee: dark and roasted, like a handful of coffee beans in your face (in a very nice way). As it warms up moderate plum, spice, candied apple and honey malt, booze, smoky but fine cigar smoke, oak/wood, some inky liqourice. Taste is very bitter, somewhat minty/grassy, spicy sharp moderately chocolate finish. Body is stony, bitter, medium slickness, quite creamy/smooth, ends on a spicy slightly chewy note. Fantastic imperial stout with lots of roasty coffee. Great nose. Taste is good but would prefer a bit less sharpness. Excellent all round.
