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.

LouisP (630) - 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.

June 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks to Scopey for this top 50 berliner. As ’Dieu du Ciel Solstice d’Été aux Cerises’, 5.2%. French beer names sound more exotic, that’s for sure. Pours a dark ruby purple, opaque with a foamy pale pink head. Aroma has lots of cherry and Jolly Rancher sweets, plum, pungent fruits. Body is light and frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is tangy lemon and cherry, more Jolly Rancher. Refreshing and balanced yet with a little complexity too. Good stuff. (8-4-7-3-16=3.8)

Aroma is nice tart raspberry yogurt, plum, cranberry, powdery. Flavour is composed of tart plummy fruits raspeberry, mixed red berries, . Palate is tart, medium bodied, super dry, airy carbonation. Nice yogurt funky-ness.

ComradeK (1269) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2016
Draught at the brewery. Pours a hazy pink-red, with a large light pink head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has sour cherries and a little light wheat. Strong sour cherry up front leads into a little cleansing wheat in the mid-palate, with tart, sour cherries to finish it off. Super refreshing, and a very fun beer.

jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Pours a bright red with no head. Aroma of cherries and sour wheat. Taste is sour wheat, big cherry flavor, this is a sour cherry bomb. Absolutely amazing

SlackerMads (3583) - DENMARK - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle. Light hazy red with a medium sized good lacing pink head with ok duration and regeneration. Cherries, yoghurt and raspberries in the nose. Flavour is bright with lots of raspberries and cherries. Some darker berries, very mild yoghurt and lemon. Soft carbonation and filling mouthfeel with some sweetness and pleasant sourness to match, although it gets slightly yoghurt lactic in the finish. Long finish with berries. Very enjoyable.
