Pours amber with a large lasting head.
Noes shows pear, apple, spicy hops and a little light malt.
Flavours include more pear and soft malt, a metallic note and honey. A little abrasive.
Carbonation is a bit over the top.

Good starting head that settles slowly to a single layer of bubbles. Good blanket to spotty lace. Cloudy gold color.

Initially, I detected some earthy smells, but I no longer can detect them. The aroma is fresh and has a grapefruit element to it.

Astringent finish to this beer--just straight bitterness. Light malt up front but it succumbs quickly. Good body and carbonation.

Moralité looks like some kind of yellow milkshake; it has the turbid complexion of a banana smoothie. Glowing peripheries persist despite the dense interior, but brightness notwithstanding there's no way in hell you'll manage to see through the thing. Carbonation is excitable so pour carefully.

Bottled just over two months ago, it's fair to expect a big, bombastic hop bouquet and it's not like Dieu Du Ciel! to disappoint. While I don't immediately fall in love with it the way I often do IPAs, there's no doubting this aroma's bold herbal and pungent hoppiness.

The palate entertains the very same strongly leafy and weedy bitterness, but also provides a splash of lemony citrus to lighten things up. I didn't smell much fruitiness and, indeed, I don't taste a ton of it either; there's just the token amount of rotting peach, pineapple, and bitter grapefruit.

At no point does the beer overwhelm with hops. It does, however, have a crisp, whip-like dryness that leaves a real leafy imprint on the tongue, as if one was just gnawing on a mouthful of grass or partaking in some illegal activities. I don't care much for the taste it leaves, personally.

Both Dieu Du Ciel! and The Alchemist are renown breweries (the latter is world-famous for their hoppy Heady Topper), so perhaps my expectations were set too high. I'm not disappointed with Moralité but I'm certainly not impressed; it's good but I anticipated something more noteworthy.
