812. Dieu du Ciel! Moralite

Dieu Du Ciel La MoraliteI don’t drink a lot of beer from outside of the US but this summer someone from Quebec came down to Portland and brought a bunch of beer from Canada and Vermont with him. I traded some stuff from Maine for a few bottles and cans which included a couple bottles from Dieu de Ciel! This is their American style IPA which was brewed in collaboration with John Kimmich from The Alchemist Brewery in Vermont.

Moralite pours a hazy orange with a great white head that left a ton of lacing, great looking beer. Aroma is full of pine, citrus and tropical fruits, very nice. Taste continues with citrus, tropical, pine just what I like in my IPAs. My only complaint with this beer is the bottle was far too small.

Not sure if bottles of this make it to the US often but if you see it be sure to buy some.

Alcohol Content: 6.5% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??
Brewers Website: Dieu du Ciel!
Brewers Description: The concept of Morality may give rise to various interpretations and Quebec, it has a historical link with alcohol. Certainly, we use an immoral amount of hops from a mix of Simcoe, Citra and Centennial. This results in a dry finish, aromatic and slightly resinous evoking tropical fruits and revealing a sharp bitterness. Morality was born from a collaboration with John Kimmich The Alchemist Brewery Vermont. (Translated using Google Translate)

102. Unibroeu Terrible

This is the first beer that I bought because of the bottle. The bottle is a great dark brown with silver label. Unfortunately I did not get a very good picture as I was using my phone at Thanksgiving dinner. The beer itself had a great dark color and solid head. Aroma had some fruit and yeast aspects to it. Taste was bad at first but improved as the beer got warmer. I should have looked at the suggested serving temperature below because it was much better towards the end of the bottle. Of course some of that may have been the 10.5% ABV helping to mask the taste. Overall a bit disappointing but I did only buy it because of the bottle.
