look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

341ml bottle served in a Hoegaarden thumbler glass.

A: Pours a hazy pale yellow to beige color forming a big white bubbled white head. Low retention and many spotty lacings left in the glass. A thin layer remains for long time on the top

S: Very spicy in the nose. Quite peppery with strong notes of orange zest, coriander, honey and wheat. Sweet grains. Bready yeasts

T: Slightly sweet grains upfront. Notes of pepper, orange zest, honey, wheat, coriander and white bread. Very smooth and no bitterness. In overall, a light sweet and bready beer

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Spicy, sweet grains and wheat in the aftertaste

O: Very drinkable. Great Witbier. One more positive point to Dieu du Ciel!

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, yeast, spice, and citrus aromas. Taste is much the same with spice and citrus flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a fairly intense spice presence in the flavor for the style.

Sweet, spice, and everything nice is given in this very approachable Belgian-style wheat beer. Spiced the the usual suspects, the beer is crisp, perfumy, and distinctive with that wine-like Belgian twang.

The pour brings about a golden body with yellow tinge to its highlights. A delicate and creamy froth floats the beer with a quiet and confident retention. Speckled lace dots the tulip with each swirl. The beer is very inviting to the eye.

Strong perfume emits from the rim with a boquet of coriander, dried Curacao orange peels, and natural yeast honey-suckle notes. The spices wrap around estery notes of apples and lemons for a very delicate but pungent set of aromatics. Mild candied sweetness, grain, straw, and a light butter and yougurt-like twang helps to prop up the spice and fruit.

Light powdered sugar sprinkles upon the tongue in informs the the palate of the supple sweetness of the beer. But like powdered sugar, the sweetness evaporates quickly and leaves the taste of soft wheat breads in its place. Its spicy middle palate is soft with coriander and orange peel but also brings life to the natural lemon tartness, a tinge of buttermilk and apple sulfur notes herein. Other peppery notes a lightly rye-like and earthen just before the beer shows a mild soap taste in finish.

Delicate on the palate, the beer's effortless and creamy weight floats the beer over the tongue and ushers in a highly refreshing finish that's decorated with minty-warm alcohol, light grain, and a playful prickling spice.

I can see any place called paradise offering up an elixir such as this- it captures all of what it means to be a Belgian wheat ale, but doesn't back down from the raw farmhouse essence of the style either.
