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.

Aroma is very average with cereal notes; oatmeal and barley. There is also this annoying meat smell that I have a hard time with. Half creamy and half rocky head that disappears kind of fast with no lacing. Color is blond (straw) and a bit hazy. Taste is definitely grassy and cereals are sticking out. Finish is with a slight bitterness and we can feel notes of hazelnut that saves the day. Very surprisingly tasty hazelnut notes.

On tap at DDC. Pours a pale amber yellow with a small white head. Aroma of bread malts, cereal, grass, hay, and light citrus lemon. Flavour of the same. Very subtle. Loses flavour quickly. Not very interesting. Good if you’re looking for a very light beer.

GT2 (8284) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 27, 2012
341mL thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours a low haze, bright yellow. Medium white head. Excellent sheety lace. Nose is candy corn, sharp lemon dish soap. Fresher dough as it warms. Taste is hoppy, citrusy, grassy, a bit metallic. Reminds me a bit of decent quality Czech pilsners- a bit soapy, metallic, candy corn. As it warms, thicker grassy/dense hops come through. Sharp white alcohol in finish.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a nice looking bone white head that shows great retention and lace. The aroma off of this is kind of funky, like play doh or something like that. Sweet honey and bread mixed with a a hop cone or two. The flavor is light sweet and refreshing. Light sweet malts with a hint of honey and light sugar as well as some hops if I squint a bit. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice approachable blond ale that’s easy to drink. Luckily the offensive odor seemed to go away the longer the glass was sitting.

Bottle 341 ml. Blond with a small white head. Aroma of malt and hops with herbal notes. Taste is medium-sweet with malt and slight honey (?) notes. Light bitterness. Not very tasty but drinkable and refreshing.

AlainG (1141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2012
Bière blonde légèrement voilée ayant un col mousseux timide laissant une parcelle de dentelle. Odeurs de malt et de sucre. Goût semblable aux odeurs avec des touches de miel et un peu acidulées. Un arrière-goût qui laisse la bouche pâteuse. Ce n’est pas abject. C’est juste ordinaire. Embout. 02-12 Lot 4-4 (254-040612)

Damico (2512) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Pours golden orange mostly unclear with a creamy tan head. The aroma is lighter malts, like blander wheaty cereal, which you also got dominating on the flavor. This was described on the bottle, so it is no surprise. The body is nice, but you don’t get the full sweet Belgian yeast notes that I like.
