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.

sebletitje (10287) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2017
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 (6124) - Garching b. M?nchen, 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.

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2017
En fût chez Dieu du Ciel. Une biere rouge, présentant une petite carbonatation et une effervescence moyenne, avec un corps assez clair. Au nez, ce n’est pas ce qu’il y a de plus expressif avec des arômes de bonbons, de sucre et évidemment, des cerises En bouche, c’est ultra surette. La cerise est presque complètement absente. Si on trouve les cerises, dans cette bière, c’est uniquement dans le gout de surette des cerises. Beaucoup trop sure pour mes goûts.

3.8
Tranquillity (2484) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2017
Draft at the brewery. The body is clear cherry and the head is medium and pink. The aroma has cherry and raspberry, slightly sour. The taste is cherry and sour with being too tart.
