Beer Review - Dieu du Ciel Solstice d’Hiver (Canada)

Its time for our first beer review! Are you all ready?

Let's start with a good old local Canadian beer. As mentioned today, I'll be reviewing the Dieu du Ciel - Solstice d’Hiver.

Looks: A nice dark red/copper tone and a medium sized head that's very light.
Smell: Caramel, citrus, raisins, spice and a very light touch of alcohol.
Taste: Starts off sweet, with the taste of caramel and fruit with a taste of brown sugar. Lightly bitter, but not enough to take the taste away from the sweetness. A hint of citrus or possibly cherries? Leaves a nice long bitter-sweet aftertaste.

Overall a very good beer. Its smooth to drink, be careful though, as you can't always taste the alcohol in it and it does still have a light punch to it. Highly recommended for those that enjoy beers with full aromas and a sweet taste.

PS: So I get to know my audience better, what would you guys like more of? More beer reviews? Pub/Restaurant reviews? Leave your suggestions / how I can make this blog better for you in the comments.

  2. Yeah, loving the beer reviews. Sadly, I'm not located in the vicinity of where you are so I couldn't join you in your beer-related endeavors.
    For me personally, I'd love you to focus more on reviewing beers (and other beverages if you do that) since I'm not very close to you.

    But it certainly would be nice to hear a pub review once in while still!
