Quevillon (2748) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUL 6, 2014
341 ml bottle bought at Les Marchants de la Bière in Sainte-Thérèse (Quebec) on June 24, 2014. Golden blonde little head. Aroma of herbs and mango, a little wheat. The taste is somewhat similar but a little sour, more bitter than the TDD one. It is a little less tasty than the TDD version!

Thanks to PaleAleRider for this one. Pours a hazy pale-golden colour with a huge head, actually my whole glass is all head at first pour. Fluffy, off-white, great retention and some foamy lace. Aromas of Pils hops, citrus, wtibier yeast, spices and grainy malts. Decent bite at first with sharp hops and spices. Citrus notes again and crazy carbonation continues. More of a hoppy pilsner than a witbier. Maybe became like this as cellared over a year.

ljthiessen (967) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy, pale golden pour with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, pine, hints of citrus zest and slight herbal notes. Taste is fairly bitter, a bit more herbal and pine notes showing through. Not as good as the Trou Du Diable version, but still very tasty.

northropfrye (2972) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 11, 2015
I haven’t finished reading Dante. This beer might but probably won’t motivate me to do so. Clear light golden body, white head, not long retention, some lacing. Yeasty grainy aroma, maybe some lactose and banana. Taste is an interesting sweet yeast and bitter medicinal, as well as strong sweet tropical fruit, guava and so on. Unique. Decent for a pilsener.

cards04 (2510) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 11, 2015
Pours a light yellow that leaves lacing. Aromas are sweet grains, cream, and dank hops. Flavours are sweet grains and bitter, dank, and fresh hops. Fantastic.

Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. Peach on the nose, citrus, tangerine, clove. Strong fruit nose. Crisp citrusy taste. Medium dry hoppy finish. Medium body. Well balanced and nothing like other pilsners I had. Very good!!!

rodenbach99 (3759) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2015
Une bouteille. Une bière dorée avec sa mousse collante. Le nez se présente avec de belles céréales pils, des herbes, pas mal à part de ça et des épices piquantes. Une bouche rafraichissante avec un peu de blé mais n’allez pas chercher les phénols ici, il n’y en a pas. Une finale amère et sèche.

Dégustée en fût à la brasserie. Bière jaune paille et claire ne proposant qu’un mince anneau blanc en surface. Celui-ci est tout de même assez tenace laissant de jolies dentelles sur mon verre. Beaucoup d’effervescence émane du fond de mon verre. Le spectacle qu’offre cette bière est inhabituel. Nez de Pilsner ponctué d’agrumes tels le citron et le pamplemousse. Je remarque également un côté curieusement vineux. Du raisin vert je dirais. Je parle ici d’écorce et non de la chair. Nez sec. En bouche le liquide a un corps moyen. L’attaque est d’une amertume des plus déplaisantes. C’est âcre et sans subtilité aucune. Beaucoup de poivre également. Longue et amère, cette bière porte à mon avis la Signature du Trou Du Diable bien plus que celle du Dieu Du Ciel.

UXO (1121) - CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
Appearance: very slightly hazy straw with one finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: muted, bready malt, grassy hops, mild citrus. (7/10) Taste: mild sweet, moderately strong bitter. (8/10) Palate: light to medium body, moderate carbonation, crisp lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Not quite as good as the Trou du Diable version - at least, I found the Trou du Diable version to be slightly fruitier and hoppier. This is just as bitter, but the hops are coming through more as grassiness or earthiness, instead of tropical fruit. Really not getting the passionfruit or mango the label claims. On the plus side, this finishes strong as a really crisp and clean pilsener, with a nice lingering bitter finish. (15/20)

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Tap at DDC Hazy straw pour Aroma is bready and fruity. Flavour is earthy, grainy/bready. Some honey but not sweet at all. Herbal hoppiness. Clean and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
