3.98/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A very active carbonation keeps the white lace alive, tiny particles of yeast float around the cloudy pale orange brew.

Lots in the nose … a striking ester and phenolic presence with a ripe fruity slant. Hint of powdery chalky yeast in the nose also.

Thick medium body with a layered maltiness, raw honey and ripe fruit come to mind. Higher alcohols jump out on to the taste buds with crazy estery and lightly solvent sweet and spicy flavours. More ripe fruitiness and bitter phenols battle it out and the phenols win as they clean house to make room for a semi-dry finish.

This is one wild and strong ale … Belgian style at that! This is one beer I don’t drink enough of and should.

4.55/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle with a beautiful label and foil neck. Best before 03/09/03. "The Don de Dieu in Tadoussae, June 3, 1608, under the command of Samuel de Champlain de Brouage, commissioned by the King of France to pursue the exploration of this vast and inhospitable lancd called America."

Appearance: Golden with a magnificent orange hue. The lace is thin, white.

Smell: Light fruity esters, toffee, delicate spice and pale malts in the aroma.

Taste: Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. An outrageous fruitiness of blissful sweet apricots come to mind. A soft hop twang follows with some gentle spice, esters and pepper notes. The beer then goes crisp & dry (no doubt from the wheat). Toffee/toasted malt flavours also come forward as the beer warms, as does some honey-like qualities. Finishes with spicy alcohol notes, slightly bready, grain dryness/light grain tannins and a touch of earthy yeast flavour.

Notes: At 9% abv this beer is suprisingly light and refreshing. It's also one of the best beers that I've ever tasted.
