No. 213 – Dieu du Ciel Blanche du Paradis
Yesterday (Yïssterday, if you will), I tried a pretty decent IPA and a passion fruit IPA as a cool down from drumming. I followed this up in the evening with a white beer…
A strong orangey aroma was evident even just on opening the bottle. The head disappeared quickly leaving a cloudy and let’s say full-bodied white beer behind. It has a light fizz on the tip of the tongue providing an instance hit of orange which is great. It had a hint of something burnt as well, that I’ve noticed with many other beers but never been able to describe well – apparently that’s the hint of toasted bread (see the description below). It’s somewhat heavy to drink, but not too much so. It makes me think of the texture of a porter with the aroma and taste of a white. This is a good thing. As a good white, it is of course refreshing and I would definitely drink this again as the irritatingly warm summer days go on.
Yes, it’s good. Yes, it’s worth the price. Yes, it’s accurate. Yes, I’d drink it again. Yes, I’d recommend it. Yes, I’d go out of my way for it and Yes, I would go out in a heat wave for it. A strong 7/11.
