Overview This beer from Canada’s Unibroue offers the most specific beer-pairing we’ve ever seen: “Enjoy Don de Dieu with...aged cheese and dried sausage at a riverside picnic while watching sailboats and race boats…during summer regattas.”

Flavors and aromas The distinctive Unibroue ester profile is apparent here, with some attractive tart notes of sour cherry and pears. The body is sweet but well balanced by tartness in the mouth; some tasters noticed spicy pepper and clove notes.
