This has a cloudy pale yellow body with a substantial head that supports a decent lace on the sides, but diminishes rather quickly. Sour lemon aroma with malt in the background. Crisp and dry. Light in flavor and body. Interesting beer.

XL white head, fair retention. Hazy gold color.Light yeasty nose, fruity,some bananna notes. Medium body. Mellon flavors, malty/breadyness, fruit and hints of bubblegum. Alcohol is well hidden. Finish is dry and fruity. Highly quaffable at 9% alc..

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2004 Hmmm - this is a bit of a tough one to figure out. I like the earthy copper colour although I did expect the head to stick around a little longer. I also liked the fruity aromas of pineapple and apricots....no peaches and lemon....it kind of makes me think of a fruited up weisse beer actually. Very lively on the tongue and much maltier than I expected from the aroma. Sweet lingering alcohol finish - solid.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Cloudy golden color. Aroma is yeasty and spicy.Light fruity taste in the mouth.Goes down smooth.Alcohol is well hidden. Finishes with a musky tart spicy taste. This is better than Duvel!

DYCSoccer17 (3697) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 8, 2004
Pours a cloudy blonde with a robust white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma seems sort of faint--bananas and yeast. Start is mild, middle had decent carbonation and lots of yeast, finish is slightly bitter. A decent brew, but nothing to write home about. It is kinda cool that the Don De Dieu probably sailed nor further than a mere 2 miles from the house i grew up in.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2004
(bottle, sampled at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden) Hazy golden with a small white head. Spicy and sweet aroma of lemon and oranges. fruity and yeasty flavour. Light mouthfeel. The 9% ABV is not noticable. Dangerous! Very drinkable.

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.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 29, 2004
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.

3.7
Nate (4279) - 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.

adwoan99 (305) - Ft. Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2004
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
