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.

Had this a few times and I can’t figure out why. First had on 3.29.14. Smell is old malt and some floral. Flavor is moldy earth and stale beer. Meh.

341ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold with a one finger white head. On the nose, light straw, light grapefruit, light lemon zest, and apparent wheat. Taste wise, citrusy lemon peel, light yeast, and mineral heavy bitterness that leads into malty Euro-Pilsner like notes with more lemon zest, and light black pepper. Golden ales are one of my least favourite styles, but this is a solid, easy drinking beer all around. Thumbs up, and a "well done!"

Poured a slightly hazy golden/orangey colour. Average size head, and gave way to a very thin layer with good lacing. Aromas are of grainy malts and some mild spices. Nice flavours, not too offensive. Some fruity elements, a bit sweet, some bitterness. Pretty good mouthfeel with some tartiness on the palate. This is probably one of my least favourite DdC brews, but would still take this over any macro brew-poo.

Bière blonde au-dessus de laquelle est posé un mince anneau blanc qui succéda à la belle mousse onctueuse qui s’est formé lors du service. Beaucoup de miel au nez, des fleurs, du trèfle. Beaucoup de sucre également. Nous avons affaire au nez à une bière dense, chargée et lourde. Le miel est encore très présent en bouche. Il est accompagné d’une quantité importante de céréales jeunes au goût de bananes et de pain au levain. Texture poudreuse et même farineuse, cette bière n’est pas mauvaise mais n’est pas facile à boire non plus. Je me sens du côté de la bière d’abbaye Belge avec un apport malté notable, voire pesant.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal. A hazy, golden beer topped by a small, white head. Nice lacing. Grass, a generic fruityness and pale malts in the aroma. It’s dry. medium bodied, soft and with an ok bitterness in the mouth. Pale malts, fruityness and grass in the flavor. Rather short finish. A quite boring beer, but it slakes the thirst very well and goes down easily. 150612

Draught @ Dieu Du Ciel, Montréal, QC
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, floral, hint of grain and yeast. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with an average malty, floral and yeasty finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
