But while the Gift of God is a unique malt beverage, my favourite pour from this beermaker is La Fin du Monde - similar in style, but more complex - a touch spicier and hopier on the nose with a nice soft custardy palate, yet tangier and more refreshing - this worked well with a plate of german-styled sausages. This is a wine-lover's beer, with enough complexity on the nose and palate to educate and entertain - and it can even be kept in the cellar (maker recommends three years)!
cork. 9% alcohol
Cost: C$4.50 + tax (750 mL)
This could be my favourite beer, right up there with the Chimay Grand Reserve, but there are so many others... (like my wines, it depends on the mood). Note that are numerous web reviews of this beer (i.e. Beer Genius) - a testament to its "wow", in my opinion.
CONSUMER ALERT: Guzzling a big frothy mug of 9% alcohol beer is a dangerous proposition - goes down easy, and you may think "I only had two beers, I can drive now." Wrong, this stuff really goes to your head.
