COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oh my God. It’s not only a reaction for drinking one of Dieu De Ciel’s beers, but a figurative translation of the Montreal brewery’s name. Just ask our brewmaster, he’s in heaven when drinking this collaborative tripel, inspired by Dieu De Ciel’s love of hibiscus and Belgians love of the obscure, hence our addition of tart feijoa fruit. Cheers!

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists peaches, hibiscus, spice, and faint apple. It pours a transparent copper with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of peaches and light apple. The finish has tart peach/lemon with light hibiscus. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark golden color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of hibiscus notes and tart Feijoa notes is not as enticing as I was expecting. Taste was dryer then expected with quite a bit of tart Feijoa notes with also quite a bit of hibiscus notes. Body was quite full with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Off-balanced ingredient with low drinkability meant a deception in this case.

Suttree (6505) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Clear copper, nice spongy white head. Fruity, spicy aroma. Flavor is an odd combination of mango and honeydew melon, which I assume is Feijoa? Also, a lot of white wine, like a Savignon Blanc or something like that. Seems much lighter than 9%.

jgb9348 (6486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Crisp copper glow with an orange tint and a good, two centiemtre tall tan head - not much movement, but still nice looking, slightly above average. Aroma of hay, grass, alcohol, wheat, yeast, sugars and some honey - all with a nice floral bite at the end. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong floral and herbal notes throughout in the taste with a hint of sourness, a little funk and barnyardie flavour, but a good dose of malt, wheat, yeast and alcohol. Aftertaste shows some more sour and tart notes, a little lactic taste, some shades of herbs and spices and a lot of wheat, sugars, alcohol and even some complexity. Overall, an interesting take on a trip, but I don’t think it works so well - neat to try, but the spices/herbs add some characteristics that may work with a biere de garde or a blonde/wheat ale, but don’t show off a tripel too nicely. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 12-March-2013 for US$8.99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-October-2013.

nuplastikk (6456) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2013
22oz bomber courtesy of Anndiesel. Filtered orange-tan. Interesting mix of big boozy golden malt and mildly funky tropical fruit. Creamy, the filtration really lets the feijoa shine. Very unique, the tropical tones are very pleasant, and while the beer is big, it isn’t overwhelmign on the palate. A pretty cool offering from NG+DDC.

dwyerpg (6413) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2013
To be honest, this is one of the worst-smelling beers I’ve ever had. And while this actually tastes a bit like feijoa, which is a fairly tasty Colombian fruit, it doesn’t work at all, for me or my Colombian wife. The sourness is there but that’s about all. First feijoa beer and I’m going to say that I’ll be alright if it’s my last. A huge disappointment.

3.5
joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at the Livermore Saloon. It pours orange with a white head. The aroma is huge tropical fruit juice…mango, lime, orange and pineapple. The flavor is pretty much the same with big pineapple, mango, orange sweetness. Full bodied and only hints of bready, spicy yeast character in the finish. Good beer if you like fruit juices. I enjoyed it.

tom10101 (6268) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle (22 oz). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Clear golden with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeasty and fruity with malt and pinot grigio reminiscence. Taste is slightly sweet and about the same as aroma. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Good fruity Tripel.

3.4
TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with a tall, frothy white head. Aroma is flowery and sweet with fruit notes, caramel, candy notes, grains and malt. Taste is sharply sweet with more ripe fruit notes, flowers, candied fruit, caramel, herbal notes, sweet malt, grains and yeast. Soft booziness throughout. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more flowers, ripe fruits, candy, caramel notes, herbal notes, sweet malt, toasted grains, booze and cake.

3.6
Cybercat (6160) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a pretty clear amber with a thick, if not persistent, pale wheat head. Malty aroma has definite floral and fruity notes, not strong but tempting. Flavor is face-twisting tart, strong fruity note - that must be the feijoa (how the Hello Kitty do you pronounce that?) - and has a floral hint and a touch of honey. Firm, smooth texture leaves a slightly tingly and rather tart finish. This tripel drinks almost like a sour. Distinct and - will help your face exercise muscles you didn’t know it had. ;)
