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.

Cirrhosis (1208) - Edmonton, Alberta, - OCT 16, 2012
Pale blond body with a limited cap that reduced to a sad film that sadly spins around the top of the beer. Grass clippings with hints of orange possible lemon in the aroma with big bready notes on deep inhales. Taste is crisp and clean, just a slight lemon hop lingers in the after taste. Grassy malts with orangy to a lemon citrus hop. I taste flavours..... I mean flowers. Goes down fast and forgettable.

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.

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 (2055) - 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 (233) - 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.

mjakopa (217) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - AUG 1, 2014
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 (2185) - 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.

manuelMTL (68) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
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%
