Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! La Païenne – Blonde Ale at 5.5% ABV

Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! La Païenne Blonde Ale at 5.5% ABV (C$3.59 at Marché Cosmopolitain, 341 ml, bottle date 11-Dec-2015, acquired 27-Aug-2016, reviewed 27-Aug-2016)

Appearance: clear pale straw with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin ring, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: crackery malt, light lemon and floral. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-light bitter. (6/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

Fairly bland but also a bit elderly for the style. Probably my fault for not checking the date before buying, but it was in a cooler, so ultimately I’m not sure how much damage has been done by age. Might try again if I find it fresher. (12/20)
