look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

HUGE, voluminous head with a near volcanic pour. Very cloudy and bubbly with a very bright straw gold color and gobs and gobs of lacing.

Smells fruity, lots of apples and citrus with a distinct earthy and musty scent.

Tastes very much the same with more a focus on the earthiness in the flavor. Even some aged hops. Deliciousness.

mouthfeeel is very dry with some moderate alcohol heat and a nice, bubbly, foamy effervescence. Medium bodied, surprisingly.

Very drinkable for a 10% beer but a bit dry and potent.

Overall, very delicious and wonderful, not the absolute best BSPA but quite nice anyway.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. This is my first beer from this brewery.

The beer pours a light yellow color with a gigantic white head that takes several minutes to settle down. The aroma is heavy on the wheat and grain, with some lemon notes mixed in.

The flavor is wheat, bubblegum, pepper, Belgian yeast and some oranges. A fairly complex set of flavors, but they all mix very well together. Easy to drink. The alcohol is very well hidden and barley detectable. I had no idea the beer was 10 percent.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice overall. Glad I got to try it.

Brasserie Caulier "Paix Dieu"
750 ml brown glass bottle, corked and caged
"...brewed during the full moon of December 2015, also called the Oak Moon".
Ink jet coded on the bottom of the bottle "25-02-2018 11:10:21"

Notes: Hazy golden body beneath a rocky/frothy head of bright white. Excellent head retention and very good lacing. Aroma of crushed granite/chalky yeast, sugar, soft fruit (apple, pear), golden grainy malt, vanilla, honey. The flavor displays more fruit (apricot, apple, peach) and a similar mineral component that has a little bit more of a citrus pith side to it. It's grassy, and subtly earthy and herbal with a little bit of noticeable alcohol. Drying finish with a moderate bitterness as its sweetish malt recedes.

Hazy yellow with no visible carbonation, a finger of off white head, no lacing.

Caramel, banana, banana cream pie, much like many Belgian triples.

Light sweetness, clean linen, no real strong flavours to begin with but a hint of fruitiness on the finish. Definite alcohol from end of the sip all the way down the throat. Light pear and apple. A hint of bitterness on the end.

Medium thick syrupy body, light foamy slick almost oily carbonation.

Bought at Rimping in Chiang Mai, drank June 1st 2015. I think it’s a gimmick based on the full moon theme, though it’s a full moon tonight while I drink it. Smooth beer, nice to have a decent one from near the border of France.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a large bubbly head, settling a bit to a fluffy 1/2 inch. Some fruit in the nose. Malty flavor with some yeast. Yummy Belgian Triple!

Color, head, lacing up to high standard for Belgian Tripels....nose grassy, earthy, dry, again up to high standards...alcohol slightly forward, but in a good way. A delicious Belgian Tripel and definitely recommended....
a very pleasant surprise for me.

Paix-Dieu is a well balanced beer with a malty forward taste balanced with an even taste of hops. Enjoyed this beer in Brussels, and this Triple was a nice counterpoint to many of the lambics and trappist style beers in the region.
