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. The Paienne was born in our Montreal brewpub in August 1998

    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.

    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. Also odd that half of these reviews were done in '05!

    Bottled@Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Slightly hazy golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is muscot (nuts), lot of nectar and fruits along with some caramel malts. Flavour is fruits, nectar, some nuttyness as well as some strange herbal notes. Very pleasantly balanced brew.

    Poured out a thin skiff of a cap and a clear, bright yellow gold beer. The aroma is very mild with wet grassy notes, soft and enjoyable sweetness (maybe peach or orange) and something that helps me imagine that I'm drinking this in an old abandoned farm house. Red apple skin and very faint flowery notes too. Mellow, but if you dig deep and put the effort in it has a very nice aroma. The taste is also...well...all of a sudden I want another glass of The Glenrothes 1987 - damn stuff is a mighty fine dram. Weak bitter flavours, more grass, good malts, a touch of tartness and some of that weak fruity aroma in the taste. Average mouth with nice soft and creamy carbonation. Finishes with some hop flavour. Well, if you really put your mind to it this is a interesting beer - but I cannot imagine most willing to invest that much time is a mild and overall lackluster beer. Goes down in a hurry though!

    Bottle: Poured a golden color ale with an average foamy head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma consists of grainy malt with some lightly sweet notes and no discernable hops. Taste is also dominated by some bland grainy malt with very little other characteristics. I understand that this is their entry beer but some additional complexity would have been welcomed.

    Sampled at the brewpub, in company of S8n on September 17, 2005. Pours a golden colour with light carbonation. Small white head and not much retention. Nice patchy coat of lace that stays. Fruity malt nose that is mild. Smooth mouthfeel with a creamy finish. The taste starts with a fruity mouth and finishes malty. Grainy aftertaste with sweet malt lingering. Great blonde ale with a good mixture of fruit, sweet and grain malt.

    I don't think it's possible for DdC to make a bad beer!!!! This is a much better than average blonde ale, especially when I see in the recommendations Labatt 50. Well this pours a slightly carbonated light amber colour with a white head. Very slight hop/malt aroma. The taste is really where it's at with this one, where there's really nothing overpowering it's just a very nicely balanced mix of smoked malts and hops. A really nice beer, especially for anyone starting out.

    Not a bad light beer. Poured a clear golden yellow color with only a mediocre head. Flavor, however, overachieved and essentially tasted like a really decent light beer. Nice hop / malt balance.
