4.23/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours an orange gold colour with a thin white line of head.

Smell - Grains, citrus, earthy hops, tropical aroma (like pineapple).

Taste - Earthy hops and tropical/pineapple flavours along with wheat and grains. Nice level of bitterness that lingers into the finish. A bit of spicy yeast can be picked up.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light-to-medium carbonation.

Overall - An enjoyable bohemian lager by Dieu du Ciel. Great hop and wheat/grain flavour. I could probably drink this as a session.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled July 2013. Thanks to Papat444 for this one!

The beer is a translucent golden with a small white head. Head fades quite quickly.

Nose contains malt, a bit of a honey scent, grass and some light fruit- a bit grape like. Has a scent I associate with lager yeast.

Taste is similar to the nose, but better. Grassy hop scents are the strongest flavour, with a notable bitterness and a bit of spiciness. This is balanced by a bready malt flavour with some sweetness. Again, a touch of honey and a bit of green grape.

Medium bodied, moderate carbonation level. A bit spicy.

Overall, not bad. I wouldn't search for more, but that may be owing to the fact that it is not a style I am overly fond of. Happy to have tried it.

3.91/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice clear golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grainy malts, some breadiness, floral notes, grassy hops and some lemon.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some grainy/bready malts, earthy/grassy hops upfront, some floral notes, faint lemon and some sweet honey.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

3.8/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A:
Pours a crystal clear golden straw with a clumpy, pristine white head. Head eventually becomes a nice, even film. Not a very evenly composed cap, but oh well. Good retention; nice, stringy lacing.

S:
Funky hops aromas backed up by a very musty malt smell. Simple, but smells like I would expect a beer like this to.

T:
Minerals, malt, some hoppy bitterness that rises a bit. Fresh hop flavor comes through pretty strong. Dusty and dry. Quite refreshing.

M:
Thin and dry. Not too intense in any one way. Could do with a touch more carbonation.

O:
Good, refreshing hot-day beer. Could be better in a few ways, but is not a slouch by any means. This is rich and flavorful but pretty crisp and easy to drink as well. Good session beer at 5% ABV.
Would have again.

4.03/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - slightly hazy deep golden, thumb of white head dissipated to a thin cover, plenty of lacing was consistent
S - peppery, grainy, earthy, cut grass, and a mild metallic
T - a mix of peppery and grassy hops up front, a touch of bubblegum, with a light cracker grain background, and a mineral quality late in finish
M - light and well carbonated, crisp and clean with a mild pepper feel, they really nailed it in this department
O - a fine take on a classic style, peppery hops are the big feature here in my opinion and that makes it stand out a little from the crowd, well done as usual from DDC

Thanks again for the great beers, Jayhoop.

Appearance. Pours a honey gold with a little amber and just a skim of white head.

Smell. Nice grassy, lightly spicy hops, and some sweet light grains.

Taste. Losts of earthy, spicy hops., some light grains backing it up. Lots of great flavour in this one. Has that DDC distinctinction, not sure how else to say it, but it's there.

Mouthfeel. medium body, medium, kinda lively but still smooth carbonation. Really nice

Overall. DDC never seems to lack in a rich taste, even in a lighter style like this. Very nice.
