Beer Review 26 // Disco Soleil
One such brewery you can find here is Dieu Du Ciel. These guys have produced some of my favourite Canadian beers so far (see another beer here). And I was very excited, to say the least to find a full range of their beers so I had to grab a few (would be rude not too).
Which brings us nicely to today's beer. This beer caught my eye as it's made with Kumquats, something I haven't seen/tasted in a beer before. So let's get going.
Name: Disco Soleil
Brewery: Dieu du Ciel
Country: Quebec, Canada
Price: $3.25 CAD
This cloudy-orange beer is the taste of liquid summer sunshine. Refreshing kumquat immerses the palate with citrus and tropical fruit, while biting hops interplay with bready malt. A touch of acidity from the kumquat zest finishes things off with a smile and wink. Whenever you find yourself yearning for those hazy summer days and warm electric nights, here you will find solace.
Sight: Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white creamy head. Looks tasty and matches the colour on the label.
Aroma: It has a very gentle aroma, slight hit of orange, melon and pine/resin. Not as bold as I had hoped.
Taste: Orange, quite mouth drying as well. It's very easy to drink, with a bit of malt coming through towards the finish. Drinking this kind of reminds me of Orange fruit pastels which is great!
Would I buy it again? Yes. Well all considered for my first Kumquat beer this is a success. Great packaging which seems to be their style, with a great looking beer inside. The flavours are gentle and not to over the top. I'm left with a nice taste in my mouth and would happily have more.
