This brew begins benign enough, pouring hazy straw-yellow with a brilliantly white, frothy head, much like a hefeweizen. An intoxicating bouquet fills the nose, bursting with juicy strawberry, raspberry, and lemon notions alongside gentle wafts of soft, perfumy hops. The swallow is so incredibly complex and well-blended and yet so quaffable, it’s easy to sink glass after glass and not heed the 9% ABV. A tart wheat base swirls over the tongue with licks of lemon, orange, and maraschino cherry, all balanced by fringe hop bitterness and a dash of alcohol warmth. Briskly effervescent, Don de Dieu dances through the mouth, then disappears on a clean, dry (and very high) note, leaving just touches of oak and vanilla to sink into the chest. Delicate and drinkable but highly alcoholic, this extraordinary brew is dangerously delicious.

This is an intense and flavorful yet remarkably balanced selection that pours a pristine golden color with a frothy white head that shows good retention. Initial scents of orange, wheat, apricot, peach and yeasty spice waft from the glass and continue through to the medium-bodied palate. A subtle hint of wild animal or barnyard character weaves in and out of perception, like a pleasant tease. Bright carbonation helps keep the mouthfeel lively and refreshing, while the finish is spicy and slightly dry, with only a hint of alcohol warmth.
