Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

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.

Pours a deep yellow golden with a slight haze and white head. Head did not retain as long as I expected from a bottle conditioned Belgian ale.

Smells of pale malts, light spices, honey, maybe apricot reserves.

Begins with the malts, followed by a honey and spiced sweetness, and finished with a crisp dryness one would expect from a Belgian beer at times. Highly carbonated. Lingering honey sweetness that follows the dry finish at times.

Beautiful beer. Big fan of this style and this beer. I am not a fan of the lingering honey finish that follows the dryness at times and can almost be mead-like.
