Quebec, Canada

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

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.

Bottle: Poured a deep dirty yellow color ale with a huge foamy head with perfect retention and some great lacing. Aroma of noble dry hops with some nice Belgian style malt. Taste is really dry and is totally dominated by some floral and dry hops with a nice Belgian malt structure. Body is above average with some limited filtration and perfect carbonation for the style. I believe we are just missing some wild yeast and we would have a perfect score.

bouteille brune de 341ml.

de belle couleur blonde, trouble à souhait, on dirait qu'elle est au blé, la mousse est insipide, le nez est bizzare, on ne sent pas les épices, en bouche le goût est prononcé, il est fort, très amère, on goute les houblons, houblonage à froid, ce qui lui donne un goût de vert. ce n'est pas ma préféré.

Cloudy yellow, good head, lace. Good carbonation. Dry hoppy finish, citrus spice yeast, medium mouthfeel. Mondiale 2005 where they were generous with sample sizes. Satisfying Belgian Pale. Nothing disapointing from this brewery, but this was an over-the-top highlight.

3.73/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy blonde, with light lacing.

Smell: Slightly citrusy, could use a bit more pop.

Taste: Grassy, almost milky mouthfeel, with an excellent hop aftertaste and lip smacking dryness. I think they tweaked thier recipe, because it used to be only 6.0% and I don't remember it being so hoppy. Fans of Hommelbier would enjoy this one.

Another excellent offering from Dieu Du Ciel. This one was a dry hopped abbey style Belgian pale ale. This was a nice light golden colour with a small white head that lasted for a while and left nice lacing. The aroma was of nice hops, sweet malts, and various yeast complexities. The taste was hoppy up front with some lovely sweet malts and biscuity notes in the middle. The mouthfeel was medium bodied>thin and the drinkability was pretty good. Another winner from DDC.
