Brewed in collaboration with Yvan De Baets of Brasserie de la Senne. This hazy blonde beer is brewed with rye and Nelson Sauvin hops. The aroma is quite floral and the flavor arrives in three stages: the first is reminiscent of rye bread, followed by an evolving fruity and herbal note, and ending with a long-lasting finish that encourages you to dive right back in. The name comes in part from a Belgian insult, “schieven architek”, used by the people of the Marolles district of Brussels to criticize architect Joseph Poellart who built the enormous Palais de Justice which they felt ruined the neighborhood. The second part comes from a common Quebecois swear word

The Trou du Diable Version is in 500ml bottles only (and on tap)!

2012-06-02. Bright pastel yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Lightly yeasty, sweetish pale malt, light wheat like bite, hints at spice from the yeast. 7+ Similar flavour, light yeast, light spice, what like grain touches. 7+ Average to light bodied palate. 3+ Refreshing, subtly nuanced, it has a very Belgian like framework but is relatively mild overall. Enjoyable. Sample from bottle at Wvrst, Toronto

Pours pale straw with small head and no lacing. Up front on the nose lots of yeast and cereal. Mouth is hoppy with some cereal and a bit of a peppery finish. Hint of lemons as well. Medium body in the mouth. Lovely beer from an always exciting brewer.
