Don De Dieu is just different enough to make it an alternative to the tripels and Duvel (and the many Duvel imitators). My second favorite wheat beer after Aventinus. Spicey, yeasty, and full-bodied. Goes down so easy, you need to be careful. Wheras La Fin (and the 10 and 11) are in the Duvel category, this one is definitely more spiced and "prickly". Top notch, as is the case with most of their products.

Cloudy golden in appearance,high carbonation, with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus fruit,a peppery spice and a bready yeast. Yeast dominates the flavor,with a touch of a tangy wheat and malt note and subtle fruit esters coming through in the finish.

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Musky, melon, bready. Apricot & strawberry esters. Hint of cheese. Cloudy caramel amber with light off-white lacing head. Light watery body with soft carbonation. Light sweetness to start. Notes of honey, melon, citrus, yeast, and alcohol. Finish is tangy & bread-like. Cider & pear after, lightly bitter & musky.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2004 Very nice, light aroma. Very wheaty flavour, sweet honey aftertaste. Not my favourite from Unibrow, but a very good showing. Updated: 04/06/2004

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2004
12 ounce bottle-Poured hazy orange with a nice head that was slow to dissipate..leaving nice lacing..Aroma was spicy,sweet witha strong wheat aroma...the sweet is almost honey...Flavor is nicely represented by the nose on this one.A complex layering of many flavors ranging from sweet to subtle spices...Some coriander I think also very chewy wheat body....I must admit I'm usually completey turned off by the wheat character but I really enjoyed this beer.

dannyboydwp (48) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2004
A good, blonde beer. Tastes somewhat like a rich Hefe-weisen. The wheat flavor comes through on this one and does it justice. Another good one by Unibroue

Eructoblaster (4007) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2004
Rich hazy blond beer topped with immaculate white brew. The nose is mainly fruity but the taste is far more complex (citrus, wheat and some banana then followed by a spicy and relatively bitter final). An excellent all-season strong beer with a unique flavor. Not to be missed!

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Dull orange color, slowly disapating head with moderate lacing. Fruity flavors mixed with bready richness and that "Unibroue" flavor that is ominpresent in all of their brews. Hints of candy sugar make their presence along with a bit of warming alcohol and corriander at the finish along with the fruit. It tastes like the rays of a new rising sun. The way these guys mask the alcohol in their product is unrivaled in anything I've come across. Simply fantastic.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2004
Bottle pours a hazey golden color with fizzy white head. Carbonation is plentiful, lacing seems a bit slick. Typical belgian yeasty aroma, with some fruits mixed in. Sweet smell as well, maybe of pears. Taste is of citrus, pears, and spices. Finish is sweet. Medium bodied. The 9% is definately well hidden. Very enjoyable...

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2004
UPDATED: APR 19, 2011 Cloudy, with a yellow-orange glow and a white head. Yeasty-spicy nose. Effervescent carbonation. Sweet, honey-like malts. A little sticky at times. Spicy hops and yeast esters give off hints of white pepper and light citrus (lemon and orange). Also has elements of coriander, zest and clove. Yeasty flavors throughout. A little cloying in the aftertaste. Some warming alcohol, but 9 percent is hidden fairly well.
