Dieu Du Ciel! Equinoxe du Printemps

I really, really like Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel!  At least the two beers I have had from them have been outstanding with the first being Dieu du ciel! Péché Mortel (Mortal Sin) Imperial Stout and now the second being Dieu Du Ciel! Equinoxe du Printemps (Spring Equinox).  Printemps starts with a short head and a  dark amber color.  The nose is very aromatic with a sweet fruit smell… crisp and clean, almost mellon or cucumber with banana hitting right at the end of the whiff.  You can smell the ABV for sure, as well… 🙂  The body is super, super smooth… banana in the finish, sweet, complexity in the finish… definitely a distinct taste.  I didn’t get as much maple as I had hoped, but it is there in the hints… and the scottish ale sings with its wonderful accompaniments.

Overall, this is a standout amongst scottish ales and one I would pick up if I were you.

Going extra big on the picture because I love their bottle art.

    Not to mention they have wicked label art, and are Canadian! I saw a barley wine from them recently, and am very curious about it. I haven’t seen this yet, but will definitely look for it.
