Je termine actuellement ma dernière 6e soir vieillie depuis plus d’un an et demie. Coment ai-je pu conserver aussi longtemps une bière aussi magnifique? Je ne saurais répondre. Cette bière, une fois vieillie, propose au nez des parfums complexes de pêche, d’alcool et de fleurs des champs. Bref, beaucoup de chaleur émane de mon sniffer. À l’oeil elle est d’un doré imposant qui lui confère immédiatement son label ’’impériale’’.
En hommage à mon service délicat et attentionné, la 6e soir s’impose avec une prometteuse mousse blanche cependant qui colle peu aux paroies du verre et qui dispartaît étonnament en quelques minutes. Surprise.
En bouche l’effervescence est forte mais de courte durée; semblable à une triple mais dont on retient bien plus les parfums sucrés que l’amertume. L’alcool est chaud et le fruit, qui se le dispute entre le noyau de pêche et le zeste de pamplemousse ne cesse d’étonner au fur et à mesure que l’on tient le liquide en bouche.
La 6e soir est une bière de la série Momentum du Dieu Du Ciel qui aura à notre grand désarrois, amateurs et contemplateurs de fabulosités, sauté une année.
C’est en écrivant ces quelques lignes que je salue bien bas cette dernière bouteille de garde. 3Vandoo (16) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
A bright, clear golden, quite bodied of gold. A clear white head that was generous and dissapeared quicky. A rich smell of hops, and cereals.
Taste: Oh my, heavenly balance for my palate. A great hoppish taste emerges from this beer, it hit you right away combined with a nice malty finish. Characterial, dry and ends up with a nice finish.

Spicy hops dominate the caramel malts with some fruity notes. Clear copper coloured with strong white head that recedes to generous cover with marginal lacing. Intense spicy hop flavour with nice round, sweet maltiness and pleasing, unaggressive bitterness. Crisp in the mouth and refreshing on the tongue. Excellent carbonation. On tap at the brewpub for their 6th anniversary. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2004
On tap at the brewpub. Orange amber in colour. Intense aroma of spicy-citrus hops, pine, wood, oranges and grapefruit. Flavour was spicey, intense hops, some malt, oranges, peppery. Medium body, alcohol hidden well. FInishes crisp, long and dry. Absolutely stunning. beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2004
Beautiful. I don’t know what the hell is going on with this Imperial Pilsener business.....and I don’t care. Copper gold orange amber - it’s getting dark and the smoke is insidiously interfering so i can’t be totally sure what colour it is - body with a thin but pervasive head and nice lacing. Peppery with lots of citrus and hoppy hoppy hoppy. Pretty full-bodied with a slightly bitter refreshing lingering finish. Happy birthday Dieu du Ciel - what a great place.

On draught at the brewpub and at the fest, June 2005. Light, yet brilliant goldenrod and straw colored beer, slight chill haze, but mostly clear, with a moderate white head, decent retention, low lacing. Aroma of grassy, rustic, floral, herbal, citrus and spicy hops. Everything but the bathroom sink, as far as the hops profile, it seems. Notes of sweet pils malt, but mainly just the juicy fruits. Flavor is full of hops, more flavor than bitterness, but still plenty of bitterness. Juicy fruits from the nose, grapefruit, minty/herbal hops, green grassy hops. Malt provides a backbone, of sweet honey and light doughiness, but does not have that syrupy, hugely sweet thickness that other Imperial Pilseners have. And when the hops are done this well, that’s a good thing. Some of the most flavorful hops belches I’ve encountered. FInish is moderately bitter, lightly spicy and fairly sweet, with a medium body. I didnt find any alcohol. Carbonation was relatively low for the style, and the mouthfeel was slick and bordering creamy at points, though there is some thinning of body on the end. Could stand a little more crisp yeast in the nose too. I really like J.F.’s pilseners. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pours golden maple syrup mostly unclear with a white head. The aroma is sweet syrupy, hoppy, and boozy. The flavor is similar with booze laying on the palate of a medium syrupy body that smooths out the pilsner well. There are sweet hoppy notes in there in a subtle way. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2005
draught. hazy golden-orange body, with a moderately sized frothy head. aroma consists of bread, yeast, and sweet cookie dough. Very flavourful with an adequate amount of hoppiness as well as that cookie-malt in the aroma. It’s quite sweet overall. The balance and drinkability of this is just incredible. Probably my favourite pils. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2004
Nice golden color with a white medium head. Impressive aroma of spicy hops and malt. Great, explosive flavor of malt and spicy hops. Bitter finish. Very full body, medium carbonation. What is nice is that you don’t feel the alcohol even if it’s 7,5%. Excellent, well balanced beer. CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
(Draught) At the brewpub. Described as an Imperial Pilsner, this beer has kick, body and looks. I was very impressed with the malty flavours covering the orange and peach undertones. Extremely well balanced. Lovely colour and deserving of a second sample - which I had!
