Caulier Paix Dieu 
Posted: 15 March 2015  Beer Republic 6.0 
Paix Dieu from Belgium This ale is STRONG. 10% strong, and you can taste the alcohol in every drop. My wife pointed out that to be able to tolerate the stronger alcohol taste, you need to chug, not savor, the drops.    
Avg price/liter: USD 15.10   ABV %: 10.0  Type: Tripel  Belgium 
       


Peace.  God.  That's what hippies have been spouting for decades. Brasserie Caulier out of Belgium preaches it right out on their bottle, calling it, in English, Peace God.  A pretentious name for a beer until you translate it into French and get Paix Dieu.        

Brasserie Caulier calls itself an abbey beer, and no one is lying.  Paix Dieu is brewed in an abbey, and though they say they have brewing experience of more than 4 generations -- which is like saying my dad brewed once or twice and so did my grandad and his dad -- the currenty outfit has not even been around for 20 years.

In other words, Brasserie Caulier is just another new craft brewer on the scene who just happened to set up shop in an abbey.        

The brewery continues 'ancient' traditions (ancient gets thrown around a lot as a word in the brewing world) by brewing Paix Dieu only once a month during the full moon. Each bottle has the 'vintage' stamped upon it, a symbol for what month it was brewed in. The precise month and year is prominently featured on the side of every bottle. Does each month's vintange taste different? That depends if you believe the moon's essences leak into the beer's flavoring agents.

This ale is STRONG. 10% strong, and you can taste the alcohol in every drop. My wife pointed out that to be able to tolerate the stronger alcohol taste, you need to chug, not savor, the drops. Its strength and its brewing process classify it as a triple (or tripel in the native lingo),

Well brewed, and the full moon essences permeate every drop. I felt like cohabiting with a female werewolf after sipping. But I consider it a tad too bold, a tad too strong, a tad too traditional, for my tastes. You can't go wrong sampling one over next Sunday's mass. God would be proud.
