    Canada gave the world the concept of multiculturalism, and now it gives Taiwan an odd but pleasing pastiche that is Le Ble D'Or, an outdoor microbrew pub located in the courtyard between Taipei's Holiday Inn and FNAC. What does multiculturalism have to do with beer? To start with, this pub serves up three varieties of German beer, brewed to suit local tastes by a Taiwanese-born brewmaster who was trained in Quebec. To top it off, the staff wear Hawaiian-themed outfits. So far, this writer has been able to sample the lager and stout, both of which are very acceptable. Irish patrons may complain that the light stout is served without a head, but brewer Quentin Yeh says most customers feel cheated if the liquid doesn't threaten to overflow the glass. The pub's "holy grail," Weisbier, is also very popular in beer-fruit slush combinations that help cool sultry Taipei summer nights. --By Jacques van Wersch, translated by Uvia Chang
