Draught at St. Augustine's, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color. Mild aroma (soap and bubblegum). The fruit flavor clashes with the bubblegum Tripel, creating and unpleasant feeling, and some booze in the finish.
Very bad.

Hazy orange with white head. Apricot, Belgian esters and marzipan. Fruity, light acidic and some alcohol. Super nice.

Je ne savais pas trop a quoi m'attendre avec celle ci, et imaginais que l'abricot serait plutot sucré comme la seule autre bière aux abricots que j'ai gouté de St-Ambroise, de même, son côté florale décrit me promettais un mordant houblonné et assez sèche....et OUI! J'avais tout FAUX!! Parfois les attentes gâchent l'experience et peut être fut-ce le cas ici pour moi car au final, j'ai pas apprécié plus qu'il faut l'expérience. ...c'est comme si quelqu'un avait subtilement verser du vin d'orge dans ma IPA pendant que j'avais le dos tournés! Bon, alors au nez c'était oui très herbacéés, fruité et ''abricosé'', mais les saveurs frappent vite et vivement! Du fruit mais plutot agrume de type Pamplemousse, pêche et au loin abricot pas assez mures je dirais...il y a du foin, du grain, du houblon (K.O), du raisin, du malt, du blé, des fleurs très tropicales....bref, ici il ne s'agit pas d'une triple blonde, mais plutot triple blanche très acidulé et aux houblon ultra fruités. J'avoue ne pas connaître ce style ''d'abbaye belge'' mais une chose est sure, je n'irais pas y faire un séjour de ressourcement et n'ai jamais rien gouté de tel se targuant d'inspiration Abbaye.

Oakes (18883) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2017
Pale blonde with no head. Lots of tripel - big malts, alcohol, touch of apricot. On the palate, sweetish, hoppy, firm malts and alcohol...balanced but none of the characteristics have been optimized.

3.8
punkska101 (2156) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2017
Bottle from local iga grocery A: dry apricot, yellow fruits, spicy, alcohol. App: hazy pale sparing white head, some lacing. T/p: med body with just a touch of acidity. Moderate high carbonation. O: Nice and balanced with just a touch of acidity. The barrel aged version of this can only be awesome.

3.2
Gerbeer (4024) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2017
On tap. Pours a muddy amber with light head. Aromas of dry earthy apricots and wet malts. Flavors are more dry apricots, earthy yeast and thick wet malts. Thick... Not really into this one. Good for a glass but not a big bottle

3.7
Ferris (16538) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2017
Draft - Apricot and light sweet malts. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Stone fruit and creamy pale malts. Apricot is nice.

4.2

Draft sampler at the brewpub. Yellow orange cloudy. Apricot nose, and sour fruit with bitter hops finish. Excellent.

strowlands8 (246) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2017
Belgian yeast aroma. Slippery palate. Taste is apricot and solid Belgian yeast characteristics, some copper penny in there too. Expect more from DDC

4.3
bedainedebiere (544) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2017
10,99$ for a 4-pack, almost ridiculously low priced for the quality herein, but hey, it's DDC and were in the Golden Age of craft beer here in Québec (and in a lot of other places). Apricots dominate the aroma, and the taste, that is sour enough to make your face's nervous system move the skin on it, makes the alchool unperceptible and mostly hides any sweetness. The hops bring an herbal (and treacherous) dryness in an everlasting wood-like aftertaste. Highly drinkable thus utterly boozy at 9%. I really enjoy this beer. Bravo Dieu du Ciel ! Encore ! Dieu du Ciel = Oh My God ! Or something like that...
