500ml bottle. Pours a sickly cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Looks like a Berliner Weisse sort of, but not as pale. Aromas of belgian yeast, candi sugar with a little lemon and some spice. Lemony and tart on the palate with a nice spiciness. Sandpapery texture. Very dry finish.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy light beige color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of rustic malt notes with light dry pungy hops notes. Taste is a mix between a semi-sweet malt backbone with some rustic notes and some pungent hops with a dry finish. Light herbal notes could also be detected. Body was full with good carbonation. Nice drinkable Belgian ale with some complexity.

Citrusy hops blend well in the aroma with cereals and doughy yeast, it’s quite appealing. Pours a cloudy yellowish color with a thick, frothy white head. In the flavor, everything lives in harmony and balance, the citrusy, lemony hops are quite present, but not overly dominant so they leave some place the malty cereals and the yeast to join the fun, there’s a distinct bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and lively carbonation. This is incredibly well-done and easy to drink, definitely a great thirst quencher. I need more, I mean right now!

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Bottle 500ml. (Edited after drinking on tap at "Le trou du diable") Pours hazy pale golden with nice white head, good lacing. Aroma is of grapefruits, flowers, very hoppy, spices. Tastes hops (citrus), all the way from the beginning to the dry end, hiding other features. Good, refreshing. [Edit: just had this from new batch bottle 500ml. Was’nt enjoyable at all for me, quite a let-down. Not gonna modify score here, but we are talking (3/5/6/3/12). There is an old musty rotting rag aroma/taste ruining this brew. Notes: Pours somewhat hazy blond with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of grain, citrus, musty salty murshroomy rags. Taste is of grain, bitterness, citrus, yeast esters (lots), old rags. Palate: Light body. Dry mouthfeel. Overall: Not really good. Something is weird here, probably related to the rye. Not easily drinkable. Flirting with DP]

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
Style et résumé: Collaboration entre Brasserie de la Senne et Trou du Diable. Brassée avec du seigle.
Comment: Bouteille de 500ml, embouteillée en févier 2012 et bue en mars 2012. (Version brassée au TDD).
Description: Bière de couleur jaune avec une mousse blanche. La robe est trouble. Le nez est agréable avec des agrumes. Une légère acidité est perceptible. La bouche est mordante. Une forte amertume en fin de bouche, qui par ailleurs est très sèche, rend cette bière tout à fait digeste. À la votre tabarnak !
Note: 7/10

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012
A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, nice perfumey malt with orange rinds, very nice. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with spiced notes, curacao, herbal hops, very nice and smooth. On tap at Montreal Winter Warm, Feb. 25 2012.

GarnotingPete (771) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
Winter warmer 2012. Bière d’apparence moche: couleur de noisette, trouble et sans aucun col. Des arômes très épicés de céréales, de cardamome et de cannelle. Moyennement amère, sans trop de sucre résiduel. De corps solide, crémeuse, effervescence très faible, presque plate. Elle se termine sur une longue finale aromatique.

JulienHuxley (2854) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Appearance is similair to a berliner weisse with more head, pale yellow, almost milky. Aroma is very herbal (oregano), rose and rye. Taste is very dry, herbal (grassy hops) and light pinneaple fruitiness. Cereal and belgian yeast is also very present. Mouthfeel is light like it should be but lacks carbonation. Overall: Good and different beer. More carbonation would have make it excellent. Its dryness and yeast reminds me Orval but lacks funkyness and carbonation.
