Complex flavors of hop flowers and spicy, fruity esters from the Belgian yeast are perfectly balanced with the robust flavors and aromas of malt. The finish is an assertive aroma from the dry-hopping. The soft golden color is a glorious jewel to look at. You can’t get a more perfect head and lace. I wonder if the Canadians that live near this brewery know how world class it is? The Belgium aspect of it is mild. Tastes like a Belgium IPA. Delicious. Wonderful sediment in the bottle makes this beer world class. Wow wow wow! $4.99 11.5oz. Beeraneczky (1) - - JAN 29, 2014 does not count
Just an all around incredibly well made beer. Definitely feels rich in the mouth. A rich dense fruity nose with a floral lift. A beer I just can’t stop smelling and tasting. I think it needs to definitely warm up in the glass to be fully expressive due to the dense richness. Getting really tired of overbuilt beers and appreciating more and more the importance of body and character and nuance. The kind of thing usually found in beers that have a generations in the making maturity to the recipe (Like Ayinger Dunkel, for instance). If this is where Dieu Du Ciel is now as a young brewery, it will be exciting to taste them in 50 years. If I’m overstating this beer, I’d like to know what imperfections I’m missing.
