Strong blonde beer, very yeasty. We recommend it. It is a traditional triple beer that is smooth and full of character.
Next time you look at the full moon, you’ll look at it differently. That is because Paix Dieu is brewed under the full moon every 28 days. The beer used to be brewed by the abbey of Paix Dieu, where the lunar calendar was very important. The brewery has kept this tradition to stay true to the abbey and the beer.
Not only are the brewers following the lunar calendar tradition, but they are also using old-fashioned manufacturing methods. These methods are almost identical to the methods used by the abbey. Paix Dieu beer is also 100% natural and preserved from filtration or pasteurisation.
The colour of Paix Dieu beer is golden and cloudy. The head of the beer is creamy, generous and consistent. The beer has a medium body and is low in carbonation.
On the nose, you’ll notice complex aromas. It is a mix of fruity, spicy, vanilla, hops, malt, and yeast aromas.
On the palate, you’ll get hoppy and sweet flavours. Notes of fruits, coriander, spices and yeast are present. It develops a fine bitterness.
Paix Dieu has become a very popular drink and one of the most popular beers in the brewery. It is not only a popular beer in Belgium but very popular among the neighbouring countries, especially France. In fact, 50% of the production goes to the neighbours.
Why is Paix Dieu beer special?
Besides being brewed under the full moon, Paix Dieu is also among one of the strongest Belgian beers. So just like the full moon effect, you might turn into a werewolf after drinking a few of these beers with a 10% alcohol level.
Moreover, because it is only brewed during the full moon, it limits its production. That only adds value to the beer.
