Unibroue Don de Dieu
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Unibroue Don de Dieu.
From the Unibroue website: “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 (a modification of the Algonquin word “kebec” which means “where the river narrows”). Inspired by this great adventure, Unibroue created Don de Dieu an abbey-style triple wheat ale refermented in the bottle.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy dark straw color with a small white head and little lacing.
Aroma: Malted grains, tart fruit, spice, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, honey, banana, and sweet malt.
Taste: Pale and bready malts, tart apple, pear, apricot, banana, Belgian yeast and spice. Slight hop bitterness.
Overall: An outstanding Belgian Strong Pale Ale, Unibroue Don de Dieu is simply amazing. Unibroue produces incredible beers and this 9% ABV offering is crisp, smooth and highly drinkable.
