Purchased as a mixed 6pk. Bought the 6pk just to try this beer. Served at 4deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a nice high white head that stays a bit. Dark gold like a good Belgium beer would be.

S- Lots of yeast here. Fermentation continues!

T- Lots of action here. Clove, nutmeg, yeast. So much of it all though. Quality blend for sure. Bet this one would stand the test of time

M- Excellent like all Unibroue beers

O- Very good. Wish I had access here in Ontario for this one.

Food Pairing

This wonderful brew went well with....... Thai crisp fish

Enjoy

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.
