You may have hear of Dieu du Ciel’s Rigor Mortis brand from Quebec, but maybe you have only tried them in the bottle or had a draft of the high-ABV and gold-medal-winning Quad for which they’re best known. This week’s Thursday Tap™ offers you a chance to try a lighter ale, the Dieu du Ciel Blonde Pale Ale, a 6% ABV abbey-style single with a flowery and fruity aroma with malty notes and a delicate hop bouquet. The flavor is slightly malty with notes of fruit as well as a soft bitterness in the finish.
Dieu du Ciel beers are produced using “top fermenting” yeast with a wide variety of flavor due to the range of yeast strains. The type of fermentation used in creating the Blonde Pale Ale produces fruity by-products (called esters). Usually only available in Montreal, this keg fits right into Jimmy’s No. 43 being “a friend to interesting and usual beers.” Jimmy will be tapping at 5 p.m. While supplies last!
