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.

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.

jaghana (4346) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle 341ml, a slightly cloudy golden beer with huge head and good retention. Nose is malty with honey touch, aroma is malty, toasted grain notes, grassy bitterness, earthy notes, apple notes, bot bad but bit simple from this excellent brewery. Easy drinkable, finish is on dry grain, light toasted caramel finish with good duration.

Drake (9932) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2015
New England Bucket List Trip #146. Keg at St. Jerome. Pours a clear golden with a large frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grainy malts, floral hops, dry citrus. The taste is tropical, stone fruit, caramel, bread, spice. Medium bodied, well balanced.

thorongil2 (1476) - , Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
(bottle) clear yellow colour with a smalll off white head; aroma starts with stewed fruit, then roast; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish; slightly creamy palate; very nice interpretation of this generally unexciting style

ametras (582) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
341ml bottle. Gold with a thin foamy white head. Slight haze. Flavors are crisp cereals, dough, honey, butter, orange and cooked vegetables with herbal and fruity notes. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture. Nothing to see here, move along.

mathieuc (1724) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours an ultra clear golden with a small white head that fades fast and doesn’t leave any lacing. Nose is of pils and hay, not bad but not that expressive. Taste is of weird sugar, not quite caramel but not good and clean cereals either. A little fruity and herbaceous. Bitterness level is moderate but really appreciated. Body is medium, carbonation medium-high and mouthfeel slightly oily. Overall an OK blond ale I guess but a weak DDC to me. Of course this is kind of the point with these beers, a gateway beer for some maybe?

Bière jaune paille, voilée, bonne effervescence, et surmontée d’un beau col blanc immaculé, moyennement large mais bien dense et mousseux, et qui colle sur les parois du verre. Arômes de malt pâle et de sucres (mélange de miel et de sucre d’orge) avec un houblon herbacé et végétal. Assez ordinaire comme nez, belle intensité, mais faible complexité. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, bien moins sucré que ce que le nez laissait anticiper, pain frais, malt mielleux, citron (belle petite acidité!) avec un houblon végétal et herbacé menant à une finale à l’amertume de faible à modérée. Complexité un peu faible, mais très bonne intensité, et très bel équilibre sucré/acide/amer. En définitive, rien d’extraordinaire, mais tout de même une bien bonne bière.

HippyHop (348) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2671) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2014
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.

hangunder (293) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
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.
