341 mL foil-capped bottle from the LCBO; the second of two beers in their Sommelier's Selection pack that I have yet to try. Bottled Apr 11 2014, and served slightly chilled.

Pours a foggy golden-honey colour, crowned with just over one finger's worth of bubbly, white froth. It recedes steadily over the next few minutes, leaving behind a creamy cap and collar that can easily be kicked back up with a swirl or two. Beautifully enticing aroma; lots of red apple, pear, apricot, orange citrus and banana. The malts are quite wheaty, accompanied by a noticeable clove spice presence, as well as their house yeast.

This is a fabulous, strong Belgian pale ale. Wheaty malt sweetness, honey and banana get things rolling along nicely, with ripe orchard fruit such as apple, pear and apricot following up soon after. Orange citrus and bubble gum also come through, with yeast and a spicy clove/coriander note at the finish. Somewhat yeasty aftertaste, but mostly dry. Medium in body, with crisp, assertive carbonation that prickles the palate continuously, and remains strong well into the glass. Dangerously drinkable, as the alcohol is simply not a factor in this one's flavour whatsoever.

Final Grade: 4.36, an excellent A. I love me some Belgian strong pale ales, and Don de Dieu is one of the absolute best I've found. Fans of their La Fin Du Monde will find a lot to appreciate in this one, though as a BSPA it definitely lacks much of the spicy, yeasty kick found in its sister tripel. This is one of the best beers in Unibroue's (very impressive) year-round portfolio, and a definite must-try for any fan of Belgian-style beers. Hopefully this one returns to the LCBO in a more convenient format at some point.

Don of god for English people ( Don De Dieu ).
The smell of it you have that fruity taste. More of the orange banana smell. A slightly apple coming in.
The look of it is really nice. Lots of carbonation.
Now the taste of it is absolutely gorgeous. You that citrus orange and apple taste with that banana on the after taste. It remind me of the taste of the Champagne. Really pleasant, goes down really smoothy. That 9% ABV you barely feel it. Really really nice. Much better than an ephemere apple beer.
So overall would I recommend it ? Damn yes ! This is a beer that you have to give it a try in your existence. You can t go wrong with Unibroue. You want a strong Blond Belgian Ale, go and grab Don De Dieu !

341 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Purchased as part of the Unibroue tasters pack.

Appearance - hazy golden color with honey brown hues. Impressive two and half fingers of white head rest on top. Great retention and spidery lacing.

Smell - light floral aroma, some orchard fruit namely pears. Very delicate and an undertone of candied sweetness throughout.

Taste - kind of like the smell, but then caramel and cherries come to the forefront. Some pears blended in too. Enticing and sexy with no alcohol presence whatsoever. Taste isn't as intense as I would assume. Slightly spicy finish.

Mouthfeel - smooth, light bodied, with nice carbonation.

Overall - very well crafted Belgian pale ale, with only subtle alcoholic suggestions that lie beneath. Delicious and extremely well crafted.
