4.02/5  rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

The beer pours a deep and oranging yellow, with a head of medium sized bubbles that eventually fades to a scrim. In body the beer is opaque and hazy with no sight of the other side of the glass. The beer leaves a light lacing of droopy bubbles on the glass, and a slick set of alcoholic legs. On the nose, the beer smells like a bristling DIPA. Huge, popping citrus and pine gushes over the nose with light hints of sticky, hot alcohol and a little bit of catty scents. Grapefruit pith and pine sap really stick on the nose from this beer, but I only get a light touch of pineapple funk from the Belgian yeast. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweet and then drying and bitter with big, hot alcohol which is nicely cushioned by the other flavors. Citric acidity plays in alongside the booze, and provides a nice wetting on the tongue. The balance of this beer is a little boozy sweet, but the hop bitters do pull the beer together nicely. In the mouth the beer feels on the plus side of medium in body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Carbonation is a little chewy, but bites at the start of the taste. The mouth is left sticky with a bitter, resin feeling and a dryness on the back of the tongue. In flavor, the beer begins as sweet citric grapefruit and pine resin, this unfolds into slightly cloying alcohol, spicy hops and some nice finishing bitters. Slight clove notes linger in the finish and aftertaste, reminding me that this is an American Tripel, and not a DIPA, but overall this beer is a nice blend of booze and bitters. The tripel character really comes out in the mouthfeel of this beer, but lacks a little in flavor, which isn’t horrible. I do wish the booziness was turned a little down and that I could get some banana/clove/Trappist funk and other nice phenolic notes. The phenols in this beer are gentle beneath the bitters and alcohol, but as the beer warms they do come out a bit and add a nice spice to the beer. This is a great boozy sipper that will feed your bitter-beer desires.

Been waiting for a new beer from these guys for a while as I love all their beers pretty much. Just trying to get a trip up there.

The screw cap is still a little disappointing, but it pours a decent smaller creamy 1/2 finger head that fades fairly slowly at least, nice lacing too, hazy bright honey orange colored beer.

NOse brings lots of nice mixed aromas, some citrus and tropical fruit, grapefruit, mango, melon like too, very bright fruit, little orange juice, hint rind, etc. All that mixing with a nice tripel, somewhat sweet malty base, some blond malt, toasty like, bringing a bit of a sweet smelling aroma with Belgian esters there, fruity esters, hint phenols, little booze, maybe a touch of a wheat or straw malt like character too.

Taste starts a bit on the sweet side, big malts, sweet malts with some blond slightly toasty characters, juicy malt as well, and bit grainy, with some light syrupy flavors, a hint of booze warmth and even tingle bringing more light phenols, and there are more fruity esters. Hops start as an after thought at first, fair bitterness with more spicy like hops, as well as mild citrus and just a hint of a grapefruit pith. As it warms and I leave it to settle in my mouth, the tropical fruits come through a bit, as well as a mild dank resin, light papaya and mango, some fruity hops, bit of tangerine and melon as well. The hops eventually turn chewy and spicy as the finish gets fairly dry, quite bitter too, bit more lingering citrus, more blond malt characters and light phenols as well as booze lingering. The more it warms the more that nice Citra hop comes through, more mango, tangerine, and bit of grapefruit.

Mouth is med to a bit heavier bodied, nice carb, some warming tingly booze too.

Overall pretty nice, I like the Belgian malt and yeast characters blended with a nice hop array of citrus, tropical fruit, and spicy characters that balance the esters, phenols, sweet malts, and esp the booze warmth. Quite tasty, not really drinkable per se, but I would drink a few of these.

11.5oz bottle into an Ommegang glass. Pours a hazy orange with a 1-finger head.

Aroma is big tropical Citra hops and Belgian yeast. A touch of bubblegum.

Taste follows nose, led by the Citra. Fresh oranges and grapefruits abound. Sweet candi sugar and Belgian yeast. Juicy and addictive, I can't stop drinking this. Almost zero alcohol detected on the palate, but I start feeling it pretty quickly.

Mouthfeel is soft and medium-bodied, so, so drinkable.

Overall, Citra is crack. I really like this beer. Dangerous.

Nice to see a new DDC bottle on my local shelf. Love trying new beers by them and absolutely love the artwork. Reviewed from notes.

A- Crystal clear golden body (I got the first half) with a foamy, puffy white head. Foam reaches one finger high and has pretty nice retention. Spotty lace from a frothy ring.

S- Citra hops, as listed, are distinct but do not mask the base beer. Nice lime, tropical fruits, passion fruit feel from these hops. Good Belgian yeast spice and some grape/light fruits mix with the hops.

T- Changes up from the aroma with a heavier yeast influence, quite a bit spicier in flavor. Citra hops give tangerine, pineapple and stone fruit hints. Strong peppery, spicy Tripel yeast. Clove, white wine grapes and coriander too.

MF- Super highly carbonated with a creamy moderately thick body. Some alcohol warming but a pleasant amount. Slightly bitter finish.

The amount of Citra used here is quite nice. It compliments the base yeast flavors but does not over take the beer making it another IPA hybrid.

Just when you thought that craft brewer creativity was running out, we get the masterful brewers at Dieu Du Ciel splicing together the time honored Abbey-style Tripel with trendy Citra hops. Its results really bring to life the fruit-forward and acute bitterness that which Tripel Ales are well known.

Pouring a hazy gold color with a peach tinge, its opaque sheen gleams like a nightlight when back lit. As the beer settles, a vibrant cotton-white froth pulls from the beer's body and adorns it with a cap of sturdy foam. Retaining solidly, the foam does settle but is quickly regenerated with a gentle swirl, leaving waves of lace on the glass at each turn.

Bright fruit aromas pull ahead of its balancing spice with ease. Ripe oranges and tangerines fuse with ruby red grapefruit for a full citrus scent. There's an element of tropical passion fruit and mango that contributes to the nose but its the citrus that takes center stage. A background set of notes from yeast and hops peak through with white wine acidity, white pepper, clove, coriander, white pepper, fresh cut grass and a slim glimmer of cannabis.

Flavors are straight up of freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juices. Nearly overtaking the 'beer' components, its fruitiness dominates it taste. But it does so with the teeth churning combination of confectioner's sugar in maltiness and pleasant acidity. Its balance of vinous white wine, light straw, grass and hay support the fruit well but hardly rival its intensity. Its dry taste in finish allows a slight biscuit sweetness to remind the palate that this is still ale.

Medium-bodied, the favors early creaminess over any champagne-like zestiness. But the ale relies on its exorbitant strength and high hop rates to assist in dryness, cleanliness and crispness. The ale trails with citrus and white grape acidity before a medium-dry closure.

Dieu Du Ciel really knows how to build a beer! Every risk they take pans out spectacularly. And that's exactly what they do here. They completely rip apart the balance that makes Tripels so great, but they put it back together with the citrusy American hops at the forefront and it doesn't just remember the base style, it might actually reinvent it!

A: Pours from an 11.5 ounce bottle a slightly hazed, sunburst orange with 1/4" off-white head which fades to the rim leaving splotchy lace.

N: Herbal, citrus (grapefruit and lemon), tropicals (passion fruit and mango), melon is present, yeast.

T: Slightly sweetish, yeasty and malty, citrus, floral and herbal. Interesting balance between the hops, yeast and sweetness.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Yeasty, malty, and faintly sweet finish.

O: An intriging hoppy tripel, but not a true tripel per the style. ABV is hidden well.

From the 11.5 fl. oz. bottle. Strange dating system. I believe it put the expiration date sometime in 2014. Sampled on September 1, 2013.

It pours cloudy pale yellow with a quick head that fades as quick as it it erupts. Mildly cloudy.

The aroma does have a basic biscuit malts note with some Belgian inspired yeast, citrus, some spice, and some butter. It does smell enticing.

The body is medium and astringent.

The taste is where it all falls down unfortunately. There are some citrus notes, some biscuit I notes, and a bit of grapefruit or otherwise something tart. But the taste is not out of this world. I did not feel like I was drinking a Tripel. It seemed a little more sour than that but it also was not a sour ale. Most of this was impressive until I drank it.

Picked this up at Julio's, finally. Been waiting it seems like over a year for this one and it has finally come stateside. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear golden hue with a one finger creamy white head that fades to leave a thin blanket. Not too much lacing though.

S - Ah, I love the progression of this. Cooler, it starts off with bright tropical citra hops. Almost no tripel notes at all. As this warms though the traditional tripel notes. Nice fruity esters, wonderful banana. The tropical notes fade, unfortunately, however the alcohol is nonexistent. Quite pleasant.

T - The taste though is a solid blending of the two. You have the nice tropical citra notes of mango and the sort, followed by lovely yeasty esters and banana. Lightly sweet malts, a bit more bitter than your run of the mill tripel. Nice orange notes too. Alcohol, while warming, is not that powerful. Strong lingering flavor of orange peel here.

M - Mouthfeel is soft, lightly creamy. The ABV is hidden wonderfully.

O - Overall, this was well worth the wait. I wish there was a touch more citra but by goodness that tropical meets tripel is just delicious. Doubt this would hold up to aging, which is a damn shame as I would stock up on this one.

Had at Avenue Pub New Orleans. Served in a New Belgium goblet.

A- Pours a semi-murky dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head that retains well before becoming an 1/8 inch ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of bubbly bumpy surface foam.

S- Earthy, grassy hops with a solid malt backbone and a bit of alcohol fume.

T- Pretty bitter for a triple but not overly so. Has some spice to it plus a yeasty fruit dimension. Very balanced overall with the hops, yeast and spice commingling in a pleasant way. Just a tad bit on the boozy side but I'm not complaining.

M- Soft, borderline creamy with medium carbonation and a kind of thick body.

O- Man, DDC never disappoints. I swear, if it weren't for the cold weather and French-speaking, I'd be so happy living in Montreal so I could have constant access to these guys and Unibroue.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Opaque orange glow, with a 1 finger slightly offwite head. Really inviting looking beer.

Smell: Definitely picking up a nice Citra aroma. Tropical fruits, mellony, orange, passionfruit. Would have rated it higher if the Citra was even stronger, but it may have faded a tad.

Taste: Wow, a really tasty beer. A little booziness, orangey, black pepper.

Mouthfeel: Crisp with a decent body, not too thick.

Overall: A really great beer. Will make my DDC purchasing decisions tougher in the future. I used to head straight for the Peche Mortel, but after this I may grab this on occasion.

A: Deep golden, decent clarity, it glows. Not much head for me when poured aggressively into a Westmalle chalice.

S: Lemon pepper, oranges and tangerine, firmly malty. Very heavy and sweet smelling.

T: Big, sweet and malty with plenty of dank citra fruitiness. I find this beer is a very slow sipper and extremely boozy.

M: I wish it was much drier, and more carbonated.

This is a very good beer! I had it by the bottle, poured golden color with a great smell. Nice Belgian IPA flavor, hoppy, strong, full flavored. I have had a lot of beer from Dieu du Ciel and it would be one of my favorites. I want to go and have this on tap at the brewer next.

Poured into a large wine glass, bottled 04/2013.

A: Golden honey colour, clear, micro bubbles rising to the top, quick white frothy head on pour, fairly quick die down, nice lacing sitting on top and sticking to the edge of the glass.

S: Sweet malts, apple cider, peach and some tropical fruit sweetness, light undertones of citrus and spice....

T: Starts pretty malt forward, not overly sweet, yeasty, some citrus and fruit in the middle, then moves into very spicy, bitter grapefruits, not what you expect with a standard triple, and it finishes with a bit of a spicy alcohol aftertaste.

M: Creamy, medium bodied, nice overall balance, light-med carbonation, resinous and quite drying.... not as much alcohol in the body as in the taste....

O: A nice modified Triple style... not as sweet and yeasty as a traditional triple, but starts out that way and then you start to get this interesting mix of spicy hop punch in the face that is also creamy smooth at the same time... Much like the duality of the flavours I am also mixed in my liking of it.... overall it's nice, but there are moments when you're like... mmmm, I really am enjoying this triple and then you get a face full of hops and get angry, and then at other times you're like, wow, this would make a really interestingly complex IPA.... I guess in the end, this is almost what DDC is all about... making you question what beer styles mean in the New World...

Bottle, label as below. I tried this at a Beerfest 3 or 4 years ago, finally able to revisit this one.
Hazy golden orange color, with a thick off white head. Good retention this chunky lace.
The smell has some yeast aromas, slightly peppery, but a ton of hops on top.
Taste has lots of citrus fruitiness, more yeast, and finishes with some spiciness. Lots of hoppy aroma and bitter flavors. A bit of warming from the high alcohol, but not a distraction.
It has a low level of carbonation, medium body and mouth feel.
Smooth and drinkable, way more hoppiness than expected from a tripel.

Note to self: Ranked #21 Tripel when I reviewed it, #36 Beer in Canada.

Big thanks goes out to MSquared2 for sharing this one at a recent Random Sunday Tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a minimal white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, dark fruit, wood, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, banana, wood, and spice. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. I really had no idea at all what to expect going into this one if I am honest. However, having tasted quite a few brews from here that have been good I didn’t hesitate to dive right in. I definitely wasn’t disappointed at all with what I found. However, for the style this one wasn’t a standout unfortunately. It was fairly well balanced, but it just needed to bring a little more to the table to put it on another level for the style. Worth your time trying it, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to do so.

Thanks papat444 and Jayhoop!!

Appearance. Pours a hazy gold amber with a finger of thick, almost white head that leaves some great lacing.

Smell. Awesome. Candied fruits, mainly citrus, papaya, and other tropicals. Some nice spicy and fruity belgian yeast and citrusy hops. Yum.

Taste. Spicy Belgian yeast, some citrus fruit, mainly lemons and oranges, sweet light malts, grassy hops and booze. Doesn't live up to the smell, but not bad.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, a little sticky, medium amount of smooth carbonation.

Overall. Someone told me this was one amazing smelling beer and they were right. The taste didn't quite live up, but still an interesting and flavourful beer.

Super hazy orange juice coloured pour. Half finger, snow white head. Lacing is spotty at best.

Spicy yeast, sweet cookies, oranges, lemon rinds and coriander.

Belgian yeast, slight pepper taste, lemon rind and a bright grapefruit from the citra.

Light body, slightly dry with a lingering finish.

Traded from Andrew in Ontario (thanks!). Bottle date looks like April of this year (6 months cellar).

Poured into tulip glasses. Tried not to disturb the yeast layer. Smells of apple/pear, and a bready note, and alcohol. Long lasting wet layer of foam. Mostly clear golden orange color.

A little hot (alcoholic) on the first taste. Not as sweet as it smells. Very hop forward for a Belgian. Subsequent sips are still hot and sharp, especially for the style, but the balance works pretty well.

Agitated the yeast and poured into the glasses. With the yeast it's a smoother beer, the hops fade back. An improvement over the "clean" pour, in my opinion.

Depending on the price, I'd buy a little more, or order it on tap, but wouldn't seek it out.

Labeled as a New World Triple with Citra Hops. Awesome.

A: Pours a beautiful hazed, golden/orange. A two finger, finely packed, white head forms with excellent retention. Rings of lace. This is a looker.
S: Big grapefruit in the nose. Slightly soapy, but that does not ruin anything for me. Citrus, floral, grassy. Spicy and herbal aromas. Bread and biscuit malts, and finishes with a sweet touch of honey. This is great.
T: Again, the grapefruity hops are very apparent. Though never over powering. Spicy, floral, herbal notes. Bread, biscuit malts with a nice sweetness to bring everything together.
M/D: A medium body with lively carbonation. Very crisp, and clean. Smooth at the same time. So easy and enjoyable to drink.

This is a great take on a Triple. The sweetness and herbal spice is there, along with the great Citra hop bite. Very well balanced. Highly recommended.

Bottle from papat444. Shared at Jason's birthday celebration. Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip.

A - White foam settles to a partial cap, thicker collar, and a few specks of lace. Lightly hazed golden body.

S - Lots of citrus and tropical fruit hops, a bit of alcohol, light spicy and estery Belgian yeast. Reminds me a bit of Soma's PATT but with less yeast presence.

T - Taste is quite sweet, with plenty of juicy citrus and stone fruits. Moderately yeasty and bready, with less overt alcohol presence here.

M - Smooth, medium body, lower carbonation, with a touch of grain to the texture. Sticky, lingering finish, and surprisingly little alcohol warmth considering the bite in the aroma.

D - It's a bit boozy, but it's not excessively so considering the 10.2% ABV. I enjoyed my 4-6oz but it's not a beer I could drink in large quantities. A good marriage of American hops to a traditional Belgian style. I'd drink this again if a fresh batch showed up locally.

Bottled on 04/12. Poured in to tulip.

A - Translucent medium orange with a golden yellow glow around the edges of the glass. Half a finger of light cream coloured head.

S - Bready malts, Belgian yeast and tropical fruit aromas up front. Some mango, pineapple and peach notes are present. An excellent nose!

T - Bready malts, light clove and Belgian yeast flavours up front. The tropical fruit profile that was evident in the nose shows up in the middle but is not as prominent as the nose suggested. Some lighter mango and tangerine flavours come through. The ABV is slightly warming but overall it is incredibly well hidden considering the ABV. Some spice and candy sugar notes in the finish.

M - Medium, almost full body with a really big chew. Light carbonation.

Hazy orange colour, one finger of white head with lots of lace all the way down the glass. Smell has some belgian yeast and a whole bunch of tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruit and pineapple, some spicy points, cloves and some alcohol, malty wheat notes as well, but fairly fruity and hoppy. Taste is a little more tripel than the nose suggests, lightly sweet belgian yeast, fruity, candy apple, some citrus fruit and a pretty big bitterness, spicy clove, touches of alcohol, dry in finish with a bit of doughy malt. Medium carbonation, medium full body, some resiny and slick at points nice drying feel. A really nice American style tripel, hoppy, complex and flavourful.

Another gem courtesy of joemcgrath27... Mad props...

A - Pours a hazy burnt orange colour with a brown hue, finger of head with decent retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Sweet citrus notes, lemon iced tea, bubble gum and cloves with some honey and cane sugar on the finish.

T - The citrus hops come through nicely, reminiscent of a DIPA, but the fruity Belgian notes coming through with hints of clove and toffee. A touch of ABV sweetness with a bitter citrus flavour that lingers.

M - Medium bodied, smooth with a touch of dryness and a hint of ABV heat.

O - This stuff is potent, yet smooth and creamy. Loads of flavour and surprisingly drinkable. I would love to see this available through the LCBO in their signature 4-packs as this is something I would treat myself to frequently. Any fan of the style may be a bit confused with the citrus hop kick but will surely not be disappointed.

A: Crystal clear copper/pumpkin orange with 1 finger of creamy thick head. nice sheeting of lace across the entire tulip glass.

S: Giant grapefruit scent with sweet cream, pine and hints of yeast and sweet malt. Smells like a creamy grapefruit trifle.

T: Sweet and creamy malts with notes of dry grapefruit rind. Sweet biscuits and and creamy mild toffee. Finishes with pleasant bitter Citra hops. The taste is creamy and smooth as if it might have been aged in oak barrels.

M: Syrupy and coating in the mouth, great creamy feel with some pricks of carbonation at the front end. Mild alcohol finish to compliment the dry hops.

O: Herbe a Detourne is a contradiction of taste and smells, sweet creamy malts and dry bitter hops that compliment each other perfectly. The sweetness of the triple is present and is accented with the addition of bitter Citra hops. Complex and refined, worth trying as a sipping brew with great cheese and dried fruits.

330ml bottle, in a tulip

A - dark straw yellow. Darker than your average tripel. 1" head which dissipates quickly

S - Citra! Holy cow. Grapefruit explosion. A little sugar, maybe some bubblegum, Mountain Dew, a little uric acid.

T - Alot of citra in there. Grapefruit, passionfruit. A little pine. Boozy finish. Definitely taste the ABV

M - Very nice. Medium body, medium carbonation

O - More so a Belgian IPA rather than a tripel. Not a terribly huge fan. Good, but would like more malt, less hops.
