Blond like a ray of sunlight, crowned by thick foam and sustained by a pronounced effervescence, this beer is the delight of all our customers! Its bouquet is the result of a large array of floral and fruity esters which are complemented by a light and delicate fragrance of malts and hops. The first draught reveals a full-bodied beer with a malty sweetness and a warm touch of alcohol. A hint of acidity is discovered in the aftertaste, but it is quickly overcome by the sharp bitterness of the hops. The Rigor Mortis are complex beers designed and brewed with patience and care in the tradition of the great Belgian Abbey beers.

PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2009
On tap at DDC. Pours an amber with thin head. Notes of malt and cereal with hints of ginger. The taste was moderately sweet with a light oily finish in the mouth. It was a nice triple but not out standing for me.

bedainedebiere (533) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2009
Tap at brewpub, 13 oz glass. Great tripel, with usual spice/yeast/dry-hop character. Pretty boozy tripel and eventual fruityness and sweetness are quite hidden by the alchool. This beer might benefit from cellaring, especially to thicken that texture and let the sweetness become more present. Still a much more than decent brew.

robinvboyer (4425) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2009
some soft fruity aromas, but mostly just a strong yeast, and hop punch. Flavor is dominated by the hops, and the yeasty esters, and the fruit has a hard time comming through. Its a nice triple, but a tad simple, and one dimensional.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Biere blonde avec un collet bien fourni. Odeur de peches, zest dorange, donne une impression de sucr, oublon, coriande. Gout leger sucr,bananes, crmeuse, un peu poivr, mlange de pommes et fruits sauvage, punch aux fruits. Excellante!!

Average in nearly every way for a tripel. In other words - I enjoyed he breadiness and rich aroma. A little more acidic that my preference, but the warm finish with a layer of hay is a nice close.

Draught (6 oz. sample) at Dieu du Ciel! Deep golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweet orange candy with backing notes of yeast and coriander. Soft body. Flavour is predominantly sweet, with orange notes as suggested by the aroma, some nice yeast complexity, and a herbal finish. Very nice.

My 1200th rating! On tap at the brewpub, visited June 23 2007 with a big group of friends (no fellow rateberrieans though). This is designated as 8% the night that I had it. Slightly hazy golden amber with a foamy white head displaying excellent retention and lace. Yeasty aroma, vaguely fruity and spicy. Semi-sweet palate with flavours of berries, citrus, bready-yeast, and sweet spices. Surprisingly light mouthfeel for the alcohol content. An approachable triple in my opinion.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2007
[8%, snifter @ Dieu du Ciel] Almost clear, golden amber color. Slight malt presence in the aroma, sugary and sweet. Flavors are quite strong on the yeast character, with some strong sugary sweetness. Somewhat alcoholic finish. Nice DDC "house" character, however.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2007
Cloudy dark yellow poor with a thin off-white head. Good lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramlised malts and alcohol... Good balance between sweet and bitter. Nicely effervescent. You can definitely feel the alcohol to the palate. Flavors are not to complexe, light pepper, oregano, citrus and hints of caramel.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 Orange body with a short-lived off-white head. Fruity yeast, alcohol and sweet malt. This May 2007 batch was announced at 8% (lower than the 10% ratebeer entry) and the alcohol could be felt. Nose was very shy and the flavour spectrum was very simple to say the least. Some orange and citrus and a medium-high sweetness level. Hops barely made their presence felt. Medium body with a soft carbonation. This batch is a below average Tripel but I know this beer has beer better in the past. While most Dieu Du Ciel beer recipes have been getting very stable over the last few years but this one seems to be as irregular as a fat dude with a low fibre diet.
