Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Petit Détour – Belgian IPA at 6.5% ABV

Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Petit Détour Belgian IPA at 6.5% ABV (C$4.00 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 341 ml, bottle date 22-Apr-2016, acquired 23-Jul-2016, reviewed 25-Jul-2016)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of loose off-white head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: lemon zest, dry hay, horseblankety funk, tropical and stone fruit, pale malt, Belgian yeast. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild funk and tart. (9/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp bitter and spicy funky finish. (4/5)

Yep – that’s how you do a Belgian IPA. Not quite “bright” because of the funkiness, and there’s a spiciness that builds towards the end of the glass, but still crisp and refreshing. A really good example of one of my favourite styles. (17/20)
