Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Fun Fou – American IPA at 6% ABV

Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! Fun Fou American IPA at 6% ABV (C$4.99 at Collective, 341 ml, packaged on 24-Jul-2019, acquired 29-Aug-2019, reviewed 10-Sep-2019)

Appearance: slightly hazy straw with one finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, spotty soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tart citrus, lactic, wheat, tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate tart, moderate-low sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, dry medium tart finish. (4/5)

Maybe I’m being a bit unfair here, and having unrealistic expectations for one of my favourite breweries, but: it’s a bandwagon kettle sour. It’s not what I’d call fou, nor is it particularly fun. What it is, is light, citrusy, tart, and crisp. Perfectly serviceable, particularly as a thirst quencher, but, well… boring. (15/20)
