WVRST tap takeover. Yeasty and a little funky. Often a superior Belgian pale ale contains some spice or characteristic of interest. Although I do not find one here, only a story in yeast,it is drinkable, a nice changeup.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2011
A blonde belgian ale with a thick creamy frothy white head. In aroma, fruity esters, loads of cloves, red melon, berries. In mouth, a smooth belgian ale with light cloves, bananasa bit like a crystal weizen, nice and smooth. On tap at Vices et versa, Feb. 13 2011.

JulienHuxley (5640) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2010
On tap at the pub. Golden pour with frothy white head. Very interesting aroma of watermelon, citrus, yeast, hay and fresh bread. It tastes mostly fresh cereal, bread, yeast and herbs. Straightforward. Medium/thin body, lively and sharp carbonation. Very decetn belgian ale.

Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2009
On tap at the pub. Golden body with average white creamy head. Enjoyable malty/hoppy aroma with spicy and honeyish hints. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste with bready/grainy notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 Second and third tries, from different batches:
A spicy, orangey fruitiness seeps from the well-extracted pale malt sweetness, and the Belgian yeast signature renders greater complexity. Still very drinkable, but much better rounded overall, and more flavorful too. I have to say the herbal qualities of the hops and the doughy yeast character kind of clash though... 3.4/5 and 3.6/5

First try:
Any first impressions?
-A sheet of foam covers the clear pale gold.
-Bubblegummy yeast emanations and characterless cereals fail to excite the nostrils.
-Macro lager-like cleanliness and very basic cereal flavors astound the palate.
-The rather prickly yet low carbonation cannot conceal the watery passages.

What if you dig deeper?
-Cereals again polish the finish.
-Chick peas appear in the nose after a while; is DMS starting to show its repulsive self?
-There really is not much to talk about in what turns out to be a macro replacement Belgian Ale. A rare disappointment from Trou du Diable.

On tap at the brewpub. 2.6/5
