341ml bottle poured in a Duvel tulip glass.
A: Magnificent bottle art. Dieu du Ciel! trademark. The beer itself is also such a beauty. It pours something in between orange an pink color forming a medium to big bubbled and fluffy white head. A bit cloudy. Good retention and only few to no lacings left in the glass. A thin layer remains from beginning til the end
S: Very flowery as expected. Spicy too. Reminds a Belgian Witbier with strong notes of flowers in it. Quite good and complex. Some notes of fruits (mainly cherries) and sweet grains as well
T: Light sweet grains upfront. Strong notes of wheat. Some notes of sweet malts. Flower and spicy taste, I would dare to say some coriander and orange zest are present too. Again, reminds me Belgian Witbier spiced with flowers. A light hibiscus acidity in the mouth but not overwhelming but pleasant. Very mild bitterness, very light hops profile. Yeasts have Belgian Wit profile
M: Light body. Medium carbonation and a flowery aftertaste with notes of wheat and spices
O: Great drinkability. Another Dieu du Ciel! masterpiece. Very unique beer

12oz bottle in Duvel tulip
bottled on 2/14
purchased at La Duchesse in Quebec City
A: A shocking pink color with a very thin white head with touches of pink, lots of pink here :)
S: A hint of fruit (cherries?) and some spices, there might be more, but I have been fighting a head cold
T: Cherries and flowers with a light spice in the background, my first thought was a fruited saison, but there is a distinct wheat breadiness that doesn't quite go with a saison. The subtle spicing is a nice touch, not at all overdone, complements everything else nicely.
M: Round and yet crisp at the same time. I think the malts are providing the roundness and the high level of carbonation helps it feel crisp.
O: I like but don't love this beer. I think it is more me and the style vs. the quality of the beer. In fact I think this is a very well made beer and is probably a homerun for the style. I could easily drink a couple of these on a hot summer day. Nicely done and worth trying.
