BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

Style: Belgian Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Don de Dieu (Gift of God) was the name of the ship that Samuel de Champlain sailed on his mission to “explore and discover the vast and perilous land of America” in the name of the King of France. His travels led to the founding of Quebec City in 1608.

Inspired by this great adventure, Unibroue created Don de Dieu—an abbey-style triple wheat beer refermented in the bottle. Soft and round, it has delicately nuanced fruity and hoppy notes.

In a word, outstanding. The aroma is one of the 'cleanest' I've encountered from an abbey-style triple, like fresh-picked fruit or something! For anyone who is a fan of Chimay, Trappistes Rochefort or Corsendonk, if you can locate this (we only get in while in Montreal, never seen it down in the lower 48), grab it and love it.

slightly hazy amber with a fizzy white head that recedes to a film; The smell is fruity sweet with just a hint of the ABV; The mouthfeel is smooth and not as carbonated as I expected from the pour; The taste is slightly sweet.

Sweet, easy drinking strong Belgian wheat ale. Aroma and taste of apples, caramel, and spices. Feel is a really nice medium, plenty of carbonation, very clean & dry finish.

I liked it (so did David) but as seems to be with this brewer, it was a bit too spicy for me.

Copper colored and hazy. There's a fingernail of off white covering about half of the middle of the glass. The aroma is of pale wheat and sweet, light Belgian yeast, green apple, and pear. I'm tasting sweet Belgian yeast, light Belgian candy sugar and pale malt. As it warms I'm also tasting a touch of pear and lime. The mouth is moderately carbonated and plenty dry.

Love this ale. It is an excellent holiday/special occasion beer. Keep a bottle around just in case of emergency!

Pours a cloudy honeyed gold, and the beer is very "fizzy", as opposed to "normal" carbonation.

Smells of apple cider, yeast, candied fruit

Taste is complex, a bit of caramel, acidic citrus, some apple, sweet honey

Very crisp, dry finish (despite a sweeter taste)

4/30/18...pours cloudy orange rusted bronze with a touch of white foam. Sharp apple nose, pepper and some wheat. Soft wheat open, sharp peppery spin, & then a tart yeasty bitter close. Bubblegum and green apples flavor all over the place. Really damn interesting.

This was a gusher. Big mess. lost a quarter of the beer. Vowed to pan a review. Drank anyway. So good. Looked great. Smelled better. Tasted awesome. Sparkly feel. Will try again. Next time under the glass.
