COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)!

Bottle at Bellwoods, Toronto
Hazy blond color, generous head. The aroma is spicy and citrusy, some lemongrass. The mouthfeel is off dry; delicate malt flavor, hint of spices, perfect bitterness balance, with some sweaty hops.
There is some real brewing art here.

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.

jercraigs (10247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
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

JorisPPattyn (9878) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2012
Half of a comparative tasting of both Be and Que versions, thanks to the brewers! Very pale lemon yellow beer, small white rim. Dryish, young/milkripe grains, pinch of lemon. Dry, doughy and spiced (as ground mustard powder), wholemeal pasta. Champenoise pearling, light bodied, rainwater quality. Nice light, spritzy beer, refreshing.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit and crunchy cereals (rye and oats?) thrive in a dry, spritzy mouthfeel where grassy bitterness is leveled and compelling.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy whitish yellow.
-Im sure bottle-conditioning is going to do wonders for this brew, so I cant wait to get a few bottles of it.
-The grain bill is admirably showcased from aroma to finish.
-This is quite quenching.
-That finish is something else; all flavors gel and last forever, in harmony.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel! and at the Mondial.
