COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abv varies from 5% to 6.5%.

German inspired sour wheat beer (based on our Été Indien). The obvious and domineering acidity of this beer is obtained by letting the unboiled wort go sour for several days. The Solstice d’Été is made complete by the addition, during the fermentation process, of a phenomenal quantity of whole fruit (raspberries or cherries) which compensate for the sourness of the beer. The result is a very refreshing beer where both acidity and fruity flavours dominate wholeheartedly.

De couleur rougeâtre, très mince colle mousseux sur le rebord du verre. Au nez, ça sent les cerises sauvage fraîche, on y ressent un côté acidité, concentré. Dès l’ouverture en bouche, une poigné de cerises vient direct sur le palais. C’est très fruit, avec un petit coté acidulé qui fait de cette bière un autre chef d’œuvre de DDC. Sans réel arrière goût autre que la framboise. Miam un délice dans le verre!

Draft @ Beavertown Extravaganza'17.
Pourpre, col fin rosé.
Arôme offre un superbe bouquet fruité de cerise avec un accompagnement vert, fleuri houblonné restant modéré sur le noble. Rétro sur de fines effluves de grains concassés.
Palais est fruité, cerise offrant de fines notes de tannins, touche acidulée qui reste plaisante mai surtout présente en fin de bouche.
Râpeux et finement grinçant en fin de bouche rappel de cerise bigarrée.
Fini sur un léger effet de cerise noire, petit malté pils? avec un effet lactique tenace mais plaisant.

On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma has sweet macerated cherries and cherry preserve notes. Taste is mostly tart, dry and fruity. It's decent but quite simple.

SinH4 (6401) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2017

Tap. Glowing red color with tiny white ring. Aroma is artificial cocktail cherry, wheat, almonds, yoghurt. Taste is the same. Medium carblnation. Too artificial for me. I love Dieu du Ciel, but I'm quite disappointed by the two solstice d'été I've had.
