COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dernière volonté (French for "Last Will") is a mix of Belgian and English brewing traditions. Complex flavours of hop flowers and spicy, fruity esters from our belgian yeast are perfectly balanced with the robust flavours and aromas of malt. The finish is commandeered by an assertive aroma from dry-hopping.

IPA pas mal, mais manque cruellement de caractère. Pas mauvaise, mais une seule expérience.

jmgreenuk (8400) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 3, 2015
Tap at Brewdog Shorditch. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is caramel resin hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a rich woody resin citrus hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Draft. Hazy golden pour, tall white dense head, lots of sticky foamy lacing. Bready, citrus, tropical fruit, aroma, floral but not overwhelming. Taste is much the same, but there’s a real good hop presence there too.

341ml bottle (dated July 2012) served around 6 degrees in a snifter: This beer was recommendation made by a beer fanatic friend of mine and I thought I’d give it a try to see if it was as impressive as she described it. Honestly, it was. Being a huge fan of Dieu du Ciel, I did have some expectations and as usual they met every single one of them. Let’s begin: Visually, the beer pours an hazy golden releasing a fair amount of micro carbonation. I got about three fingers of fluffy foam with awesome retention properties as you can appreciate on the picture I took moments after pouring it. The nose is an interesting blend of flowers, honey, citrus and bready malts. The brew is very aromatic, but I didn’t find it to be aggressive or excessively floral. The malts brought everything to an enjoyable equilibrium. On the tongue, you’re first hit with the citrus and the floral elements. Some honey paves the way to the finale and enhances the flavours to give a floral finish holding a moderate bitterness. I have to mention the brew’s exceptionnal density and silky/oily feel. Overall a very nice product even for those unaquainted with the IPA. It’s good without being too complex or too bold. A perfect match with zesty salads, strong cheeses (an old cheddar for instance) or your favorite spicy food. Cheers!

Bottle. It was a bit old, but is was still nice enough. Would like to try a fresher batch though.

HKdIPA (732) - HONG KONG - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle at Anton's in Toronto. Hazy light orange golden pour. Belgian-y aroma with slightly more hoppiness - citrus peel. Taste is the same. More Belgian, less IPA. Not bad.

Poured a hazy light gold with a fizzy white head. Aromas of white wine, apples, Belgian yeast, along with some floral notes. Has a smooth medium body and medium carbonation. Has that familiar sweet spiced flavor from the Belgian yeast and a nice amount of hoppy bitterness. I find there are some floral almost tea-like qualities. I’m a sucker for Belgian inspired beers, and this one fits the bill. One of my favorite breweries.
