COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blanche du Paradis is a Belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander seeds and Curaçao orange peels, the spices traditionnally found in this classic style. Unfiltered and containing almost as much raw wheat as malted barley, it presents a veil of yeast and proteins giving this style its "Blanche" name. Round and light at the same time, it exhales fresh baked bread aromas, and reveals spices and citrus flavours, accompanied by subtle notes of acidity coming from the wheat.

Very solid and typical interpretation of the style, orange peel sweetness, hints of a spicy graininess, light and easy to drink, really a great beer all-around.

Beautifully refreshing with a lovely banana & clove smell/taste with the orange coming through subtly. Like liquid sunshine. Rated by BrewTom

Cerveja de trigo com "temperos" (que não constam no rótulo) . Paladar muito agradável, aveludado e adocicado na medida exata. Uma das melhores trigo que já experimentei!

Bottle. Golden light hazy. Wheaty, slight wheat malty sweetness, citrus, creamy soft coriander. Med full bodied, soft smooth texture. Belgy yeasty peppery, tasty. Pretty nice belgian style wheat beer. Feels a tad heavy sweet as a wit though, but as a generic belge nice. Went well with the sturgeon 3 ways it was served with.

Pours a slightly hazed light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Sweet citrus, wheat and banana yeast aromas. Medium bodied and dry with orange and banana upfront turning to mild clove in the soft bitter finish.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2014
Bouteille 341ml @ GrandCru beershop, Cesena. Dorée sur un léger toruble, col blanc. Arôme offre un petit bouquet fruité agréable tirant sur un fin citronné avec un rétro-nasal de coriandre modéré et une pointe de douceur orangée - écorce. Palais tire sur une blanche facile en approche, rondement bien brassée. Épicé et coriandre, pointe d’écorce avec une petite acidité des grains et un ajout de coriandre qui grandit au fur et à mesure de la dégustation. Effervescence modérée sur haute.

eduardovl (926) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
341ml bottle served in a Hoegaarden thumbler glass. A: Pours a hazy pale yellow to beige color forming a big white bubbled white head. Low retention and many spotty lacings left in the glass. A thin layer remains for long time on the top S: Very spicy in the nose. Quite peppery with strong notes of orange zest, coriander, honey and wheat. Sweet grains. Bready yeasts T: Slightly sweet grains upfront. Notes of pepper, orange zest, honey, wheat, coriander and white bread. Very smooth and no bitterness. In overall, a light sweet and bready beer M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Spicy, sweet grains and wheat in the aftertaste O: Very drinkable. Great Witbier. One more positive point to Dieu du Ciel!

Keg at BD Camden, 30/09/14. Clear pale golden with a moderate off white swirl and edgeing. Nose is straw, vanilla, citric peel, wheaten bread, spice, white pepper, lemon rind. Taste comprises vanilla essence, candied fruit tones, soft bread, spice, clove, lemon peel, yeast notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Very good offering for the style, I can see why this scores so highly, a well executed wit.

Another fine brew from Dieu du Ciel. Extremely clear and clean pale gold with a pillowy snow-white head. Smells of coriander, citrus, wheat and honey, all in a very clean basement. Taste is . lightly bitter, very refreshing hints of wheat, honey and smooth, subtle spices. Great mouthfeel, mid-light carbonation with an dry bitter finish.
