Thursday Tap™ – A Brewpub-Only Draft Of Dieu Du Ciel’s Rigor Mortis Blonde

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!
