Paienne is a top-fermenting June straw blond coloured beer. It presents aromas of malt, fruits and hops. Its well-balanced flavours are dominated by malty and fresh cereals tastes, completed by a delicate bitterness. All of this makes the Paienne an inviting and thirst-quenching beer offering at the same time satisfying tastes and a generous body.

This is probably the "worst" beer I’ve had from Dieu du Ciel. There’s definitely nothing remarkable about, but it does have more character than the average blond ale. (Side note: why do craft breweries even bother making simple blond ales and lagers with generic taste profiles? Am I the only one who ignores these offerings almost entirely, in favour of the cool hop bombs and funky hybrids and barrel aged brews?) ANYHOO, the pour is typical golden, the nose is typical wheat and spicy bread dough, though there’s also some fruity sweetness and a sort of barnyard funk. Taste follows the nose, with a boomerang finish that leaves sweet and comes back crisp and dry. Overall it’s pretty darn good for a plebeian beer.

Bottle from metro supermarket. A clear gold with a foamy white head - it looks like a perfect blond ale. Great bready sweet malt aroma with a soft  fruitiness. Bready fruity esters, a bit of caramel and a crisp bitter finish. A great entry level to Dieu du Ciel for non-craft drinkers.

Malty and yeasty aroma, not much in the way of hops. Smells sweet. Hazy yellow, short lived head. Taste is a bit more exciting but not overly so, upfront sweet malt and belgian yeast, finishes with some grassy hops. Light/medium bodied and average carbonation. Nothing special, surprising from this great brewery.

Pours a light yellow with some head and low retention. Aroma is the best part, giving off hints of maltyness, some hop bitterness and a some fruits. Body is soft and on the malty side with some sourness at the back and sweetness at the front. Aftertaste is a bit drier and ends quite quickly. Quite a light beer, but definitely enjoyable and with it’s own twist.

Lukaduke (2153) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with a finger of white foam. Nose is grainy, sweet malt, biscuit a touch of honey. The palate is clean with a nice balance of bitter and sweet with some layers of earthy honey, bready malts and traces of spicy yeast. Kind of a belgian inspired pilsner. Refreshing.

From bottle. Clear golden. Medium white head. Sweet pastery-like malt aroma. Taste is mellow caramel malty sweetness with a touch of hoppy bitterness in the end. Good refreshing beer!

Apparence: Une belle mousse généreuse avec une bonne durée. D’une couleur jaune paille opaque, typique d’une ale. Arômes: Céréales dominent au nez avec la fraicheur du houblon. Saveurs: Au début, c’est vraiment le mélange des céréales et du houblon. Puis, les céréales disparaissent pour laisser toute la place au houblon qui demeure léger. Fiche technique : Style: Ale dorée Format: 341 ml Taux d’alcool : 5,5%

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml. Dégustée le 14 février 2009 (pint). Bière blonde dorée voilée. Mousse très peu, col mince et éphémère. Peu effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur de levure bien présente, de sucre. Goût assez âcre. Un peu fade, manque d’effervescence, de caractère. Aurait pu être plus savoureuse. Unidimensionnelle, manque de complexité. Bière d’entrée de gamme, pas comparable aux meilleurs produits de cette brasserie.
