COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I’d expect much more from Dieu du Ciel. This is a standard blond ale, a bit citrussy, Slight hop taste, oily, dry bitterness, no lingering

[bottle] Slightly spicy, lagery aroma with some sweet, fruity pineapple. Almost clear dark yellow under a lasting, white cover. Slightly vegetal flavour with sweet tropical fruits and a medium bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, faint lasting dry bitterness in the finish.

Une de mes seules déceptions de DDC, la Païenne est une blonde de base, avec de forts sucres résiduels et des notes de maïs et de céréales fraîches. Rien de mal avec aucun des aspects de cette bière, si ce n’est qu’au total elle est plutôt ennuyante, et ni sa belle couleur dorée, ni son énigmatique étiquette n’y peuvent rien.

Cask version with Citra hops in fry hop. Lightly hazy golden blonde with a nice foamy head. Intensr citra hop nose with belgian yeast esters greatly mixing in. Light body, crispy herbal bitterness, some citrus notes, finishing really fresh ans tasty. This citra definetely adds a lot to this simple belgian blonde bière de table. Very nice.

Bière dorée, voilée et où flotte un fin col blanc laissant une légère dentelle au verre. Des arômes fruités et à peine lactés de céréales et d’herbes fraîches. Elle offre une amertume notable avec une très légère pointe de sucre. De corps honnête, elle est huileuse, moyennement effervescente et se termine sur de légers arômes et une amertume rafraîchissante.

Jaune pâle, voilée, mousse éphémère, effervescence faible. À l’odeur, on perçoit du houblon et du citron. En bouche, le côté céréalier se dévoile en entrée avant de céder le passage à une amertume calculée. Un peu d’alcool en distraction. Quand on sait ce que Dieu du Ciel! peut faire, quand on connaît l’ampleur de leur catalogue, la Païenne ne fait pas le poids. Pour le reste, ça demeure un produit franc qui tient la route... mais que je ne serais pas surpris de voir sortir de la gamme des produits réguliers au profit de quelque chose de plus «wow»...

Courtesy of the Tommy on this one. Pours like a blonde. Taste and aroma are what you would expect from a standard blonde ale. Nothing wrong with it but unremarkable.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel Montreal. Lightly hazy golden-yellow body, moderate white head, lingering finish, dense lacing. Nose is lemon-grainy focused with some sweetness from a lightly bready malt profile. Flavor is complemented by a light citric-grassy bitterness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, clean finish, fairly refreshing.

Pours blond with a decent head lacing and a little head. Taste has some bitterness and a little bit of spice but not huge on character. Very crisp. Alright for style. On tap.
