La Dulcis Succubus, translated into English as Succubus Douce, is a beer produced by the Le Trou de Diable brewery of Shawinigan, Quebec Canada.


Six months fermenting in oak casks of California white wine botrytised, gives this beer a complex nose that has the aroma of flower honey, vanilla, apricot and leather tempered by the addition of wild yeasts. Full and generous taste, and a bittersweet backdrop of American hops.


The beer is promoted as being a succubus is a demon in the lovely appearance of a woman who seduces and damns men in their dreams. She is both feared and desired ... You have been warned: once you've tasted it, you will ask for more for eternity.


  • Inspiration: Wild Season
  • Fermentation: High
  • Alcohol: 7% alcohol by volume

Overall the beer is described as being produced in the farmhouse style, and having a hazy dark orange colour. It is available from kegs and bottles, both of which have a quite complex nose, a tart, fruity taste with a hint of sourness, leaving a salty finish. It is also described as having a good carbonation and weight overall making it drink well.


In 2011, the beer won the Médaille d’Or, Wood and Barrel Aged Sour Beer at the Canadian Brewing Awards.
