Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
In short: A wheaty, sweet and refreshingly fruity Belgian blonde ale. Nice.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy glowing dark yellow body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: The highly aromatic nose is a burst of exotic fruits navigating between passion fruits, bananas, lychees and such. Taste has banana purée, lemon muffin, banana bread, exotic fruits, residual sugars, a tiny bit of ginger, timid hops presence, almost no alcohol. Something very wheaty in the muffin/bread flavors I was getting. The beer manages to be both sweet and refreshing. An interesting twist on the style, I liked it. It was a good beer to drink after we spent the day rollerblading on the Ottawa bike path, because drinking good beer is not all there is to life. Too bad though, I wish it was.

TaktikMTL (6021) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2010
En fût. Verre de 12 oz dégustée chez Trou du Diable (Shawinigan, QC). Arôme: Odeur d’épices avec une pointe fruitée. Apparence: La couleur est blonde voilée. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’agrumes avec une pointe d’houblons herbacés et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’épices en arrière goût. (Rating #2913)

Draft at brewpub. Hazy yellow. Sweet, spicy, strong aroma. Too strong and yeasty. No body or character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (4856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
On tap at the brewpub: Poured an orangey color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of fruity ester and light spicy yeast is interesting. Taste is a nice mix between some Belgian style malt with good notes of fruity ester and some light spicy yeast notes at the end. Body is full for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well done for early stage of the brewpub and something I will revisit again.

presario (4706) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle. Glass is half dark amber thick white foam. Moderate aroma of yeast, alcohol and a herb/spice/wild rice note. Flavour seems stronger and more aggressive than expected. After first sip it smooths out but still strong demands your attention. A bit of a rough outdoorsy edge. Strong yeast foundation, peppery finish and some peach-like fruit that keeps emerging.

solidfunk (4474) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Pretty well done for tripel. Aromas of coriander and booze with some Belgian yeast and florals. Pours lager golden without head or lacing. Nice sweet finish with light bubblegum. Tap at brewpub.

JulienHuxley (3459) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: Shiny opaque orange with solid foam. Aroma: Honey, white flowers, peach and alcohol ester. Shy but elegant. Unfortunately, it is a sugar bomb. Some white fruits but damn too sweet. Palate is nice, full bodied and lively carbonation makes this one somewhat drinkable. Overall packed with flavors but way too sweet.

(En bouteille. Date d’embouteillage illisible) Un liquide embrouillé à la robe jaunâtre. Une mousse qui se transforme en anneau. Une très fine dentelle. Un nez intéressant par ses fruits exotiques et par son blé. Des épices latentes dans un alcool plutôt doux. Du miel, peut-être une tonne. Un goût dominé par les oranges et les ananas. Une douceur maltée qui s’affirme beaucoup trop. Un côté piquant : les épices et/ou l’alcool? Une bouche riche et une texture bien épaisse. Un pétillement très doux, peut-être trop. Une finale fruitée, amère et passablement chaude. Une offrande que j’imagine plus intéressante à la pompe. Enfin, je peux me tromper.

robinvboyer (3257) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2012
Cloudy golden pour, frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, pineapple, loads of citrus, and fresh cut grass. Good carb, and the palate is spot on. The finish is quite malty, with lots of grains and cereals. The hops and fruit fall right off, and it ends in a hefe life blast of yeast. Weird.
