Straw yellow pour with meringue-like head. Musty wine scented. Slightly sweet mead, white florals on the tongue, slight vanilla aftertaste. Stinging carbonation. Well hidden alcohol. This was a nice surprise, with a very unique flavor profile

This has been a shelf turd at the local bottle shop and it was discounted (though still pricey) so I figured why not?

Pours a golden straw color with a head that is just ridiculous. It's pure white and fluffy and is about the size of an obese hockey puck. Lots of bubbles.

The aroma has lots of green apple and white grapes. Maybe a bit of spice.

The taste follows the nose. Lots of apples, some pears, and apricot. Getting some bananas as well. Lightly spicy.

The feel is very light with a ton of carbonation. Very crisp with a slight burn on the tongue from the carbonation.

Overall, a solid beer. I'd be interested in trying more from the style.

From 2d2despuma. In Teku glass. Watching True Detective 2x04-05. In my saint's day A cross between a saison and a Duvel. Amazing in nose. Very refreshing and incredibily well hidden ABV. Expensive (20€)

Pours a straw coloured body with a nice champagne-like head, with highly visible carbonation. The scent brings up a great deal of dark fruit and spice, with notes reminiscent to Chimay Bleu. The taste is wonderfully balanced between a well-varied spiciness, nice body, and splendid finish. As of now, the best beer I have ever had. I would do just about anything to get more.

I'd see it on the shelf for at least a year with its price; tempting me to exercise bad judgment. After a year, I broke down.
It may not have been worth every dollar, but it was worth the experience.
It is good to know that beer can be as good as wine that has that extra cache we call champagne.
But for the same reason I don't like champagne (dry and too bubbly), I have not gone back to Deus.

It is on the 1001 list.
MJ's "Great Beers of Belgium" gives it three full pages, plus photos.

2014 Vintage . Very convincingly packaged in the champagne manner, and bottle opens with the Reims sound.

Enormous very fine white head, body darker than anticipated.

Sweet marmalade flavours predominate, the lingering mixed flowers and herbs.

No sense of the 12% alcohol at all.

Enjoyed it, but something of an anti-climax. Can't imagine I'll be rushing back for another, but would recommend it to anybody
