COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The best barley of all grows on the Magdalen Islands. We harvest the windblown, salt-kissed grains and use them to concoct a malt with a maritime accent that gives our beers their unique character. Come to our microbrewery À l'Abri de la Tempête, relax by the sea shore and dip your lips in a brew as fine as spindrift.

Non sans rappeler les lagers commerciales, l’Écume réussit tant bien que mal à conserver une trace de son héritage. Heureusement. Loin de pouvoir compétitionner avec les autres produits de À l’Abri de la Tempête.

Bottle. Purchased accidentally when wanting to buy corne de brume. I can’t say this is bad beer, very crisp light cookie aroma and taste. Just enough malt sweetness to make it quite refreshing. Its major downside is its price which is just phenomenal for what it is.

Thanks to M. Alain at the Montreal Bonisoir shop for pointing this out to me. Clean pale yellow; thick frothy head. Light slightly salty aroma. Quite the thirst quenching flavor. Very crisp, very tasty. Lightly hopped but very effective. Slightly salty. Imagine if this could be people’s every day beer of choice instead of Bud Light. Then I could stop making fun of them.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
341ml bottle 2008/11. Pours clear yellow with a medium head. Short retention. Leaves lacing. Nose is grain, malt and cookies. Taste is mild bitterness, rather dry finish. Malt and grain. Very refreshing. A bit citrusy. Nothing really special but good enough. Maybe a little pricey for what it is (3.29$CAN).

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2009
Dégusté avec Pyrozoid. Apparence d’un jaune pipi (désinvolte) avec petite mousse blanche. Arome de miel, blé, mais, citron avec légère présence de banane verte. Amertume prononcé au début avec une finition sec. Gout uniquement créer le houblon... Bière de tout les jours de qualité moyenne. Un peu décevante après avoir dégusté une corne de brumes.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2009
Bouteille de 341 ml. Dégusté avec french tickler. Une biere de couleur blonde avec un collet presque absent. Odeur de miel, blé, citron et un soupcon de raisins. Gout de blé, bois humide, resemble un peu a un vin mousseux.

Frankieboy (12) - ste-justine, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Goût très raisonnable et à la fois abordable. Épuré, mais à la fois aussi relevé. Un col généreux qui ne dure pas cependant. Le col ressemble effectivement à de l’écume. Plus riche en goût que la moyenne des blondes, mais qui ne se distingue pas côté originalité du goût.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry. Decants from the bottle, a pale and sparkling gold with a one finger of white fizz. The aroma is sugar and grains with shortbread cookies and straw, and hints at yeast. The flavour profile is surprisingly sweet and shows grains, bread crust, fruit and doughy accents. Average carbonation and a decent finish with a bit too much residual sugar. Standard stuff. Thanks Harry!

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 29, 2008
20071025 Bottled Feb 07. Pale gold, thin white head. Aroma is bready, white toast, bit of cantaloupe. Flavor has light citrus bite, mineral, salty. Wet graininess. Not particularly good or refreshing which pretty much defeats the purpose of the style.

341ml bottle from HogtownHarry; Nose of sweet corn with a little skunkiness; clear gold with a medium yellowish head; flavor a little sweet with graininess and a tiny bit of background hops.
