BEER INFO

Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

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.

From Saveur-Biere. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Los Soprano 6x04-05. Full of apple notes and some white grapes. Strong yet pleasant carbonated feeling with zesty spices that invites to short, very enjoyable sips

Another shout out to my big bro for leaving this behind in my Dad's fridge for little bro to enjoy....and enjoy I did! Major complex infused flavors going on here. These Belgian ales are something else...so sweet and smooth yet hop evident. Wow! Outrageous stuff!

Pours a golden straw with a slight haze. Nice fluffy white head. Smells of yeast, apples, and banana. The flavor is banana, apple, and bread, with some other fruity flavors I can't quite place. The yeast is definitely the star of this beer. Feel is incredibly smooth and it's medium-bodied. Overall, awesome beer from Unibroue. Will definitely get this again.

Straw coloured with some film that just won't quit and no lacing.

After being opened for a minute and warming some time the fruity nature of the wheat comes thru followed by some sweet bready malts. Mouthfeel is crisp due to the carbonation and vague apple flavors.

Pretty damn good.

Look -- hazy golden color with plentiful lacing. Large white head when poured into a snifter
Smell - yeastry, citrus and hints of apple
Taste - follows the nose pretty well. Very well balanced taste with very little betterness. Has a crisp and almost cidery taste
feel - so smooth...similar to drinking a cider. I'd also say it hides the alcohol pretty well

Overall - Great beer for someone wanting a very well balanced and crisp beer. This is a very easy drinker and could I definitely see this as a daily beer. For myself, I think prefer la fin du monde also made by unibroue, but this is still an excellent beer!

Cloudy golden color with bright white head. A malty yeasty funk on the nose. Same on the taste with a little lemon coming through. Well carbonated and refreshing.
