Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a deep amber. Nose is malty and a bit sweet. Light front followed by a very solid malt base. Sweet malts finish this. Nice and very drinkable. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a nice slight hazed copper with a thin lasting white head. Aroma is cramy- smooth toasted malts, light vienna malts, biscuit, light nuts, herbs and grass- smells clean. Flavor is light fruitiness, toast, nuts, earth, grass, herbs, clean most of the way through then a slight papery tackiness on the tongue in the end. Ok- a touch thin, mostly straightforward.

Great look with almost ruby color, ring white foam. Aroma is slight butter and peanut over sweet fruit. Taste is nutty and has a good dry hop but the damn peanut taste, ehh not good lager. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
In short: A simple lager with plenty of caramel and some resinous leafy hops. Decent, no more.Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2006
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear copper body toped by a long lasting small beige head
In long: Nose of caramel and leafy hops. Taste is not very complex with fruity caramel, some berries and ending with a mild resinous bitterness. Pleasant full body with an appropriate medium carbonation. The lager character does come through despite the thick caramel. A bit too heavy on the caramel to be really sessionnable like a Vienna should be. This is a beer that Dieu Du Ciel hadn’t brewed in three years. Not a bad beer at all but with all the high-quality beers that they serve at this pub if they wait another three years to brew it again there will be a bigger protest than the last march against tax cuts.
A mostly diminishing large creamy tan head tops up a clear medium amber body. Moderate lacing. No particles. No bubbles. Aroma presents caramel malt being medium biscuity while hops are very faint leafy /metallic (fuggles?)... Yeast character is light fruitiness. Also, there are evident evocations of wild-berries. Initial flavor is moderate sweet while development adds up notes of .. fruity impressions.. Finish is medium . medium body... watery texture... Soft carbonation... Overall, it’s an impressive lager! I need to get more infos about the so-called vienna style..

Reddish in color with a light caramel taste this beer has short lasting after taste. You just like to have another for that nice fruity feeling. Quevillon (3096) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2006
Couleur rousse, gros collet qui se réduit vite. Arome légère de caramel, fleure et de fruit des champs. Petit goût de fruit sûre, arrière goût amère peu intanse. À date la meilleur de ce style, mais c’est Dieu du Ciel! rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2006
Hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a frothy beige head, caramel and crystal malts nose with a faint fruity note, toffeish hint in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with caramelized malts flavors, floral hops accent, with a delicate kind of peppery note, leading towards a nice lingering hop bittering finish. omhper (25153) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2004

Amber colour. Buttery and boldly malty. Medium sweet with fairly soft mouthfeel. Some licorice in the finish.
Lagers appear not be be the strong side of Dieu du Ciel.
Copper color with a thin white head. Aroma and flavor of malt and caramel, bitter finish. Full body, lively carbonation. Dieu du Ciel doesn’t do lagers often but they still manage to do very good ones, this fine Vienna is a good example.
