On tap at Dieu du Ciel. The color is amber with a thick beige head and lots of lace.The aroma is spicy. The taste is also of spicies and malt and the sweetness of honey. Its a good Abbey triple but not the best from D.D.C..

On tap, DDC. Dieu du Ciel does not generally specialize in Belgian-style beers (however their Rigor Mortis ABV is exceptional), but I thought Id give this one a go. Pours red-orange, with a good-sized head. Aroma is sweet, primarily of fruit (peach, cherry, strawberry). Flavors were crisp, yet not as complex and mature as I would have liked in an Abbey Double. Although all aspects of the flavor were desirable (my girlfriend loved this beer), I found them to be a bit too straightforward, without the depth of beers of similar styles, such as Charlevoixs DV Double, or Ommegangs Abbey. Not one of DDCs best offerings.

In short: A fruity and very hoppy Belgian amber ale. Stinky annoying hopping to me.
How: Tap at brewpub, 2008 batch (first batch since 2004 I think)
The look: Clear golden copper body topped by a medium beige head leaving good lacing.
In long: Nose is a bit stinky, that type of hopping that really doesnt do it to me, like a urinal without the blue thing. Taste is very fruity with anything from citrus, kiwis, red apples, dried strawberries and more. A whole lot of cereals in there. Rather sweet. Sensation of a sweet fruity bowl of cereals. An old dirty rug feeling brings an almost rustic feeling to the beer. Finish is somewhat dry, very grassy, moderately bitter with a sweet fruity comeback. But again those hops are really annoying me. It sometimes happens that I get that annoying stinky/rotten/sweaty feeling from some type of hopping (Fuggels sometimes) but rarely to that degree. Theres probably a good beer in there but not for me. Classified as a Abbey Tripel here, called an Abbey Dubbel at the pub. I dont like Abbey Twodotfivel.

Quevillon (3022) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
Bu sur place en fut (12oz), le 25/10/08. Dcrit comme une double 7%. Blonde miel fonce, moyen collet. Arome malt pas trs fort, des notes d’pice faibles et sucr. Got un peu houblonn avec des notes d’herbe et d’asprine, finission sucr au dbut mais elle devient amre dans la gorge. C’est bien, pas trs savoureuse et l’arrire-got gosse un peu mais on s’y habitue!

Lubiere (13521) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
Blonde ale with a light burned rubber aroma and rotten eggs. Light band-aid and alcohol, very tart, some sweet malts. Will have to taste one which isnt off. (summer 2004)

Golden with small head. Spicy nose. Sweet malts make a candy-like experience. Smooth and creamy, sticky palate. Delicious beer. Draught.

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2004
Dark golden yellow, light carbonation, white sticky head. Aroma is not too strong, mostly floral, yeasty (cookie dough), hoppy, fruity (pears, light apple). It feels pretty spicy on the tongue, brewmaster claims no spices are used the the magic of the yeast. Floral dry finish, orangey, minty hops. Creamy texture, medium bodied. Good take on the style

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2004
Slightly clouded gold color, thin head. Aroma of citrus and spices. Flavors of yeast and citrus. Strong bitter finish. Not bad, but it seems to lack something to be very good. Not up to Dieu du Ciels usual standards.

Radek Kliber (7276) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 9, 2004
Gold clear, with small head. Sweet, rounded aroma, touches of hop, sweet fruiter end. Sharp front, sweet, plenty of yeasty flavours.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
(Draught) Medium, white, foamy head with an orange body. Nice lacing up the glass. Yeasty, citrus nose. Smooth, malty body with a bubblegum, wheat, vanilla palate. Lasting bitter finish. Yikes, one beer at the DDC makes up for a wasted day at the Mondial...
