    341ml bottle served at 4 degrees in a flute glass:

    Pours a dark toned copper body bearing intense fiery highlights, topped by about half a finger of pale beige head. It shrinks to porous layer leaving awesome micro lacing.

    Its nose is enjoyable and gives roasted malts, sugar cane, banana and cantaloup. You'll also get a subtle citrus presence (orange) in the back.

    On the tongue, it's best described as a toasted malt attack set on a floral hoppy fondation. It feels clean with a light effervescence and leave a subtle hoppy finish.

    This is yet another excellent product from Dieu du Ciel! and a very aromatic red ale. It has a nice attack and impressive complexity you won't expect to find and is the perfect match to an old cheddar.
