Équinoxe Du PrintempsÉquinoxe Du Printemps
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!
Quebec, Canada | website

Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Équinoxe du Printemps (French for "spring equinox") is the quintessential marriage of two great traditions: beer brewing in Scotland, and maple syrup production in Quebec. At the first draught, the mouth is overcome by woody, malty flavours, sustained by a discrete touch of sweetness. The aftertaste brings about the flavours of maple, which are sufficiently present to be appreciated, but never overwhelming the typical flavours of a Scotch Ale.

Equinoxe du printemps is brewed only once a year in January. It is aged for two months in order to attain a perfect balance in taste. Then, it is sold starting March 21st, until stocks last.

The Equinoxe du printemps was born in our Montreal brewpub in February 1999.

3.62/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 11.5oz bottle into Triple Digit half pint glasses.

A - Reddish brown color, thin ivory head, some lacing.

S - Malts, toffee, light woodiness.

T - Burnt sugars, tannins, alcohol bite, roasted barley.

M - Thin with very sharp alcohol.

No hiding the alcohol in this one. Don't taste much in the way of maple. Very grainy bitterness, not a hoppy beer. Certainly not as smooth or sweet as other Scotch ales. Overall a very dry beer, not a thirst quencher. Something to have on occasion when you want to explore unique flavors.

Big thanks to Peensteen for sending me this one as part of my CANBIF 2013 box. Cheers man!

Appearance. Pours a very deep and opaque ruby-orange with a thin off-white head.

Smell. Caramel, orange zest and dark fruits, brown sugar and maple.

Taste. Caramel and dried dark fruits, some bitter hops and lightly smokey malts, fresh cut wood and some maple syrup that I probably wouldn't have picked up if I didn't read the label.

Mouthfeel. Full body with low+ carbonation.

Overall. A decent Scotch ale with that signature DDC complexity. I doubt I'd buy this one after having tried it, but very glad to have had it once.

The most noticeable attribute about this beer is its incredibly low carbonation. When I poured it, not even a slight head formed. The body is very befitting of a beer with such a low carbonation; very smooth and slightly syrupy. Speaking of Syrup, the maple syrup, the sweet maple flavor blends very well with the natural flavors befitting of scotch ales and especially with this one; sweet, caramely, malty, peaty, slightly smokey etc. But overall this beer is sweet. Not overly sweet, but sweet nonetheless. Good beer to try once, but this is something I definitely will not be buying again. Slightly dissapointed, since not only have I heard such amazing things about Dieu du Ciel!, but I also love wee heavies. I've had brown ales flavored with maple syrup before but never any scottish ales. It seems like a great idea and I definitely wouldn't mind trying another one like this in the future.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pours a sediment-ridden cloudy sunset red color with a 1/2 inch of head

S: Lightly smoky malts, some woodiness, maple syrup, and a light fruitiness highlight the nose

T: Follows the nose. Very light smoke, woodiness, a light sweetness, maple syrup, and some fruitiness. Finishes with a dry sweetness

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid scotch ale with a nice mellow sweetness from the maple syrup. Nothing in your face, but it's decently complex and interesting. The 9.5% is nowhere to be found, and sneaks up on you. Not around for very long as it's only brewed once a year, so get some if you find it

This is something I've had before but didn't review. Glad to get a second chance!
Special thanks to ricochet173 for this.

Light, semi translucent root beer colored pour. Half finger light beige head. Lacing is decent.

Caramel, toffee, with some fresh baked cookies and some maple syrup. This reminds me of cornbread muffins we make warmed with maple syrup. Slightly buttery and decadent.

Caramel, toffee, maple syrup, brown sugar, light roasted coffee, burnt toast.

Light to medium body, slightly syrupy.

Reviewed with Kim Lachance. Collaborative review.

Appearance: It has a nice merky orange/amber color to it. It has a nice deep beige head that dies down quite fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet dark fruit (raisins, blackberry), sweet toffee, some maple syrup.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some dark fruit, some maple/toffee sweetness, some grassy notes and a roasty bitterness

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: into a large snifter, brown beer with but a brief bubbly head (with a center-pour)

S: sweet maple and caramel malt, suggestions of dark booze

T: syrupy sweet malt forward - almost approaches an English barleywine, but has something vaguely peaty or smoky that cements it as a Scotch ale. Maple and toffee sugars dominate, accompanied by spice-like flavors that remind me of the winter holidays

M: coating, warming, smooth, slick, after-bite of spice and alcohol

O: a nice Scotch ale - I wasn't overly fond of the maple - maybe it made it too maple syrupy for me. I would have like some drier flavors in there (this would probably blossom if aged in whiskey barrels). A solid beer from a great Canadian brewery.

11.2oz bottle poured into Lawsons snifter.

A- Pours a hazlenut brown that appears a fairly opaque dark brown in the glass with a thin beige head that quickly recedes and leaves some spotty lacing. Fairly minimal carbonation but consistent.

S- Malts, molasses, toffee, lightly sweet, average aroma strength.

T- Light molasses, malts, a little bit bitter, finishes with a bit of a bubble gum taste that lingers for a little bit.

M- Medium bodied, decent carbonation, easy drinking.

O- Decent but not that great. Has a weird sweetness to it, not a huge fan. Probably won't drink again, although I haven't had many I can say there are definitely much better scotch ales out there.

11.2 oz bottle pour into my maudite snifter

A- pours pours murky mahogany color... thin off white head, quickly disappeared to nothing ... minimal to zero lacing

S- sweet caramel malt, hint of chocolate malt... rippened dark fruits... candied and caramelized ... faint smoke.... caramel is all over the place with the strength of the maple syrup

T- very caramel forward... sweet dark fruits .... light peak moss .... there's that maple syrup... all the way in the back

M- thick oily body... smooth and creamy (maybe from the syrup) moderate carbonation .... mild hop bite for balance .... zero % of any alcohol burn any where in the beer,

O- nice take on this Scotch ale... especially with maple syrup .... crazy for the price through ... but still something nice to grab for a change up

Pours a cider-like brownish cloudy brew. No head or lace.

Deep sweet and toasty malt, some toffee in the nose.

Nice rich deep complex brew. Sweet malt up front, with overripe fruit mingling with toasted malt. Stone fruit, and here comes the maple syrup. The syrup works wonderfully, giving it some complexity. Some bitter but not much. No alcohol at all on the palate. Sweet, malty and lightly bitter in the finish.

Fuller bodied, some mouth coating characteristics.

Nice complex beer. Worth trying.

No head to speak of on a murky amber body. Aroma is pretty boozy with raisins, caramel and candy sugar. This one is pretty hard to drink at first. Some of the most prevalent toffee notes of any beer I have had. Also fig, raisin, caramel, lots of maple syrup. The malts are strong too. Medium body and light carbonation. This one was too hard to drink for me. Lots of flavor but a little too much of a boozy and sweet combination.

Got this in a trade a while back. Cheers!

From a bottle into a snifter
Bottled March 2010
Maple Scotch Ale

APPEARANCE: Pours a small, loose, fizzy, off-white, cream colored head with decent retention. Head quickly fades to a splotchy wisp and ring. Opaque dark red or burgundy in color with lower levels of carbonation evident. A ring remains but that's about it. Color is fine, but the head is a little lousy.

SMELL: Caramel malts, some raisins, and lots of brown sugar. Red fruits and some maple syrup as well. Quite bold and interesting as well.

TASTE: Caramel, brown sugar and dark fruits. Raisins and dates for sure. Some spicy alcohol and a touch of sweet maple syrup at the swallow. Bold and boozy aftertaste is spicy, caramel sweet, with brown sugar and dark fruit notes. Very flavorful and complex, and nicely balanced as well.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth, no bite, and finishes somewhat mouth-coating. No heat and enough weight as well. Good feel.

OVERALL: This was really good, with very complex flavors and a nice, well measured touch of maple syrup. A touch boozy perhaps, and head could be a little more impressive, but this is solid beer for sure. Recommended.

Spring beer, in the late summer? Hey, I don't see it being any worse than breweries purposely releasing their O-fests and pumpkin ales just two weeks ago. It's a scotch ale with a twist; throw in some tit syrup and this sounds appetizing. From the Canadian 341 ml bottle, on to the beer:

Polished ruby brown colored brew with a small bubbly head on top which fizzles to a lace. It makes up the lack of head retention with a showing of some legs. The nose could appetize, but it doesn't quite hit that level of happy. There is a small squirt of maple syrup, and a modest phenolic characterwhich becomes a distractions and cuts off the aroma's potential. With time, the phenols ware off and some sweetness is available to smell, though it's low in intensity.

Has the scotch ale characters that I like, but on a softer scale. The flavors of tobacco smoke, unsweetened chocolate, gingerbread, and prunes show a beer with complexity and potential. A subtle lingering of phenols offer as a minor distraction to the base. The alcohol is hidden well in the beer itself, only freeing itself by heating the throat and stomach. Mouthfeel is medium heavy, paired with soft carbonation. Goes down easy for the style.

Certainly an acceptable Scotch ale. Warrants a try if you're into the style, otherwise you can get Traquair House for a similar price (at least in the US).

Pours a dark brown with a slight orange hue. Head rises upon pour, but goes quickly. Smell has a fig note and there's a trace of maple. The taste goes similarly. Alcohol is present, keeping sips small. The maple isn't as strong as I was expecting and definitely not as strong as I would have liked. Aftertaste is a little odd. I can't pin it, but I really wish it didn't linger like it does. Overall, I would say it's a interesting beer that I don't regret trying, but for the price tag, it isn't exactly the best choice at the store. I do applaud the brewery for their continued creativity, though.

Review from 9/2010 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a cloudy red/orange amber. Slight head with slight lacing. Sweet malt, dark fruit and maple sugar aroma. Delicious. Sweet malty Scotch ale with distinct maple flavor. Heavy bodied and almost viscous. A bit sweet, but flavors carry it through. A later tasting with a year old, properly cellared bottle had almost identical characteristics.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours an opaque deep brown with a dense quarter inch beige head that lingers as a thick pool of foam.

Sweet maple, molasses, toffee, and hints of fig comprise the aroma.

Maple, nuts, slightly charred malt, and a bit of tartness form the flavor profile. Alcohol is noticeably present. Notes of chocolate and dark fruits add complexity. Banana esters surface as it warms.

Body is on the heavy side, with minimal carbonation. The finish is fairly smooth.

Overall, a little disappointing. The charred flavor and tangy note don't feel like they belong.

The emergence from winter becons for a beer full of spirit, ambition, and warmth. All that is delivered in Dieu du Ciel's spring seasonal, although enjoyed on a warm summer night.

The Wee Heavy pours with a malty-rich appearance of medium brown to bronze with a mild haze. A dense froth caps the beer like a thick blanket across the glass. Light lacing gives a glimpse into the formidable beer to be enjoyed.

Sweet and spicy to start, the aromas of hearty malt is evedent with deeply caramelized toffee and maple with a background note of peat, smoky plastics, and fresh cracked peppercorn. Low on hops, there's a woody scent that replaces any noteworthy hop balance and prefers the complexity of its own malt development to shine.

Flavors capture the caramel and bready sweetness from malt and share a fruitcake-like menage of rum, maple syrup, and brown sugar. Interestingly, the beer's sweetness is somewhat understated when up against the acidic and dry malt flavors that follow up the initial sweetness. In masculine fashion, the slight smoky wood flavors, peppercorn bite, and slight fruit notes of applewood and white grapes round out the finish with a hearty and refined memory.

Medium-full in texture, it's the dry malt taste that circumvents the residual sweetness and blends with the oddly compelling acidic note that's not normally found in strong Scottish ales. But the creamy carbonation buffers against the acidic fruit notes and finishes with a light powdery texture and alcohol warmth.

Though truly masculine in taste, the beer is not without refinement. The combination creates a gentlemanly approach that challenges the palate with each sip but also comforts the taste buds charm and strength.

I've been sitting on this bottle for about 2.5 years, so I figured it's about that time. Pretty pumped about drinking another one from this brewery - if it's anywhere nearly as good as the other one I've had from them, it should be far from disappointing. Review is from notes taken on 7/19/2012 and poured from the bottle to a snifter.

Appearance: Pour is a dark, caramel color -- reminds me of old rust, but not in a bad way or anything; starts with a one finger head that is a light tan in color, and it fades quickly to a nearly complete, yet uneven head; body is pretty murky, and there seems to be a few floaties around the edges bubbling around with what looks to be still solid carbonation; just a few strands of web-like lacing linger on the sides.

Smell: Lots of caramel malt, a touch of wood and some peat malt, and then a lot of sweet, sweet maple in there; for being just under 10% ABV, the alcohol is completely buried in there; not a ton going on here, but what there is, I'm in love with -- smells fantastic and it's making my mouth water.

Taste: Moment of truth -- this beer is fantastic, and I'm surprised that its average isn't higher. It tastes like candied maple and butterscotch with just a touch, and I mean, JUST a touch, of an earthy bitterness, perhaps a very light coffee ground like flavor that has a touch of acidity to it; alcohol, while invisible in the nose, is certainly present in the taste, but not overwhelmingly so, but more "right sized" - provides a decent burn and it helps balance out the sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Body is a tad over medium, approaching heavy; carbonation is solid, still bubbling and foamy and lively; gums and belly are left warm and tingly from the carbonation and warming alcohol; a thin and very sticky coating is left on the roof of the mouth, and the teeth feel a touch gritty; solid overall, and it really lets you know you're drinking something with some substance behind it.

Overall: I think it's great, and I hope this review and score helps bring up the average on it. Great flavors, and would make for a solid dessert on its own. Definitely a sipper, but hey, with everything going for it, I'll sip it all night.

Kind of a weird beer. Somewhat murky light brown with a small cream-colored head that settles down to a thin white band on top. Patchy lacing. Malty and somewhat sweet aroma with very subtle maple character; some dark fruity notes, vaguely peaty and smoky.

Flavor seemed to lack much maple character; what was there was much subtler than I’d hoped. Would have liked more sweetness and a bigger dose of maple syrup overall. Instead it was a fairly straightforward and pretty good wee heavy, with a strong caramel maltiness, some very lightly smoked peat notes, and raisin, date, and fig flavors. Booze is noticed somewhat but remains pretty pleasant.

Medium bodied and carbonated; I would have liked a slightly fuller body. Decent creaminess, fairly dry in the finish. Not bad but didn’t delver the maple I was looking for.

11.5 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a dark brown with a medium off-white head, minor lace.

S: Maple and brown sugar syrup, heavy malt component.

T: Toffee and caramel malt with an undercurrent of maple.

M: Full-bodied, rich, does become cloying a bit in the finish, never really boozy.

O: A solid scotch ale with a nice twist. I enjoyed this effort from Dieu Du Ciel, but the QPR isn't really there in the end.

An aggressive pour delivered two fingers of light tan head. Body is a deep chestnut brown, and seems to let light through very begrudgingly. The head fades down in a few minutes to a ring and dust, and lacing tries to cling but slowly and inevitably falls back in.

Smells like delicious caramel malt, candy sugar, a hint of dark fruits and maple syrup. A faint woody booze note is detected after a couple of whiffs.

Caramel malt, a bit of toffee and candy sugar make up the bulk of the flavor. Maple syrup makes a good note in there, but when the woodiness kicks in its too much. Good booze flavor too, it's not overwhelming, it adds its own pleasant depth to the beer.

This beer is medium to heavy bodied. Carbonation just barely nips at the tongue, and the beer feels a little thicker. This is a sipper, and I would say is best enjoyed on a slightly chillier spring day over the warmer day I am experiencing.

Bottled March 2011. Part of me suspects this is actually supposed to be March 2012, as it appeared to be new when I picked it up in Montreal in April.

Beer is a very dark brown with a moderately sized beige head. Moderate retention, fades to a film before too long.

Smell consists of toffee, candied dark fruit, maple syrup.

Taste is like the nose. Toffee, maple syrup, dark fruit, a bit of alcohol heat (but not all that much, given the 9.1% abv). That's about it- pretty integrated and surprisingly mellow. Finish has a sweet kick from the syrup.

Full bodied, moderate carbonation, syrupy and some alcohol heat.

Overall, pretty good. As somebody who is neither a big of Scotch ales nor maple syrup, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this one.

Poured into a tulip. This one pours a muddy chocolate brown with two fingers of beige head. Good retention that settles to a thick cap of foam with some soapy lace.

The aroma gives off sweet caramel malts with some dark fruits in the background. Hints of maple sweetness in the background. Dark bready malts on the pallet with some hints of mild cocoa and some maple sweetness to round it out. Seems to have a little bit of smokiness in the background.

The body if full and chewy with soft carbonation. Overall this one is tasty. Enjoyable and balanced offering from these guys.

Appearance: 2 Finger cream colored/off-white head, almost toasted meringue color; super interesting, body is dark as hell, you can only see through it against the light and even then it's dark

Nose: Dark, fruits, alcohol, caramel, burnt sugar, brown sugar, light amounts of sweet vanilla (must come from maple syrup! yum!)

Taste: Boddy is medium to medium thick, Strong alcohol and bitter burn in the center of the tongue, caramel, sweet dark gruits, sweet rum soaked raisins, ester notes, sweet berries, definitely has maple syrup, which is actually very interesting because it works well with the style.. As it warms up it becomes more like warm whisky butterscotch - due to its malty alcohol, and maple syrup (makes it taste whisky) The maple syrup gives it some beautiful dryness. There is stronger notes of chocolate malt and sweet berry once it is warm; the alcohol also comes out much more, almost like chocolatey creme brulees with stronger notes of vanilla.

Overall very impressed, this is really good if served at the right temperature, maybe about 14 degrees Celcsius - this is amazing and delicious. it would definitelly be worth putting away to cellar. YUM

11.5 fl oz with standard pressure cap served into a Guinness Goblet in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are extremely high given the brewery, which I've come to admire.

Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a one finger head of nice cream, good thickness, and good retention for the high ABV. Colour is a rather dark ruby. Appealing.

Sm: Heavy maple syrup, dark malts, yeast, wood, and brown sugar. A rather subtle moderate strength aroma.

T: Dark malts form the foundation, with subtle maple syrup atop. I'm surprised at how tame and balanced the maple is; I've had beers built around maple before and it was always overwhelming. Brown sugar adds a tingly dimension to the climax. The scotch ale aspects are pleasant, with well executed caramelization and some nice roasted malt characteristics. All around a pleasant brew, with some layering. Complex enough. I like it.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with some nice cream. Good thickness. Adequate carbonation. Complements the flavours nicely.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable for the style. Hides its ABV well. A solid maple syrup beer with a bit too much sweetness but a good all around flavour profile. It's somewhat unique. I'd have it again if I were in the mood. It's not special, but I might recommend it to friends who really enjoy the style. Another success from Dieu Du Ciel.

B-

A decent candidate for aging.

Drank just fine out of me Guinness goblet.
