Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!
Quebec, Canada

Style: Belgian IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Last Will is born from a meeting between the Belgian and British brewing traditions. It has a complex nose of flowers and alcohol, supported by slightly fruity and malty flavors, all topped by a strong hop bouquet. In the mouth it is spicy and fruity hints and a discrete touch of alcohol. In the final, hops up the rear with force.

BOD 3/15. Medium amber murky pour with suspended particulate matter from bottle conditioning. World class head volume, lacing and retention.

Rich world class nose of fruity esters coupled with a light tart airiness. Peach, plum, pineapple, grape and orange coupled with a touch of pepper over a light Belgian base.

Light medium body with a smooth texture. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish perfectly paired with the body.

The flavor profile is almost world class, but falls just a bit short due to a very light metallic note which arrives and lingers in the finish. Otherwise, this one is a very tasty Belgian ale with a world class fruity ester profile. Flavors from the nose all appear with some separation. The sweeter flavors appear after the middle corresponding with maximum balanced sweetness. The middle provides a very light rind bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of fruit and the light metallic note.

Cloudy beer with a small head that disappear quickly. Floral and fruity smell, you have oranges, a little citrus, a bread and wheat odor too and you smell the yeast also. Still really floral in the mouth, it mostly tastes the way it smells, but better. It has a nice bitterness but it's really well balanced with the fruity taste. It has a really light body, almost oily.

Appearance - Poured from a 341 ml bottle into a tulip glass, pours a deep hazy gold with 2 fingers of white head, even after the head receeds theres a nice film.

Aroma - This beer has a strong floral hop presence, oange peel and light grapefruit, the floral side is almost a light sourness, Then you get plenty of peppery spice and fresh baked white bread.

Taste - the taste is the smell on steroids, It hits you with a jolt, the floral notes are there the light sourness is way more pronounced the orange peel is there followed by the pepper and white bread. wow this is tasty,

Feel - This is a medium body with super creamy carbonation, Even with the orange peel bitterness this is one smooth beer. considering the sweetness in the beginning it finishes rather dry.

Overall - this is one delicious brew, I love when Quebec does Belgians, This is smooth easy drinking yet very flavorful, Try it if you get a chance.
