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 (3687) - 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 (3374) - 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.

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.

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 (4144) - 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!
