Unibroue Don De Dieu

CIMG0458

I got my hands on another refermented wheat beer. Just for you that don’t know, bottle refermentation (also known as bottle conditioned) means that a secondary fermentation, by adding yeast or just by keeping the beer unfiltered with yeast still in it, occurs in the bottle. If the bottle comes with a cage over the cork, it will be a bottle conditioned beer. Unibroue seems to make most, if not all of their beers, bottle fermented, and even, at least, one of their beers is triple fermented.

Stats:
Triple Wheat Ale. 9.0% ABV. Canada

This beer has a nice cloudy golden color with a nice head.

The nose on this gives me a pretty yeasty, wheaty smell. I get a bit of the cigarette smoke, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, and apples.

Fairly carbonated but soft mouthfeel.

The 9% ABV comes through, a bit, on back end. Yeast, vanilla, apples also appear on the palate. Slightly bitter back end.

This is a pretty damn good beer, but the alcohol on the back bothers me a little. It’s a complex beer, but after drinking several Unibroue’s, they all seem to have a very similar characteristic, derived from the yeast/bottle conditioning, I think. 87 Points.
