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.

Bottle. Pours a light, clear, golden body with a medium sized soft white head. Fairly pleasant sweet grain aroma, some dough, and minerals. The body is really light with mineral crispness up front. Very thin and plain with mostly nondescript flavours.

JChapmanMTL (15) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2007
341mL bottle. Pale gold colour with pure white head. Very light and refreshing. Flavour is light and quite sweet, with a bit of a grassy taste. Sweetness lasts longer than expected with a bit of a salty aftertaste. Excellent for relaxing in summer if you want something refreshing but a bit more interesting than your average lager.

robinvboyer (3213) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 330ml bottle: Pale golden yellow, good carbonation. Nose of grains, and malt Flavour is somewhat grassy, and sweet malt, with a slight touch of fruity peach?. Nothing to write home about, but quite a bit better than most lagers.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2007
Pale golden with a thick foamy head. Aroma is malty with some sugar Flavor is malty, some herbal notes, a little watery, but way less then other beers of this type. Not a very complex beer, but very enjoyable on a hot summer day and more interesting than a lot of lagers.

Snoro (297) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2007
Aucun arrière-goût âcre, mais elle n’’a pas un goût assez fort pour moi. Bonne pour une bière à faible pourcentage d’alcool.

Boutip (4818) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2007
Bottle: Poured a slightly murky yellow color ale with a big foamy head with average retention. Aroma of salty malt and slightly funky yeast is intriguing to say the least. Taste is a mix between some salty malt with a funky yeasty finish kind of resembling a light saison. I’m not sure that the taste was intended that way and kind of wondered if it is slightly infected or past its due date. In any case, interesting beer from an interesting brewery.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2006
Orange hops aroma, with malt and some fruit characters, opaque amber, slim white head. Crisp hops taste, and malt mixed with spicey fruit. Light bodied, tangy/spicey. Fair.

rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2006
(341ml bottle) Aroma: hardly any, just a touch of light malt. This is a very mild and somewhat watery beer. Weak and flat mouthfeel with no aftertaste. Nothing really offensive about this beer but nothing pleasant either.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2006
Bottle. Golden color, bubbles and thin white head. Hops and wheat aroma. Taste is motly citrus and grapefruist, wheat. Quite refreshing, not bad. Bière de couleur doré avec des bulles dans sa robe et un mince collet blanc. Odeur d’houblon et de blé. Goût d’agrumes, de pamplemousse et de blé. Pas mauvaise et elle est pas mal rafraichissante.

GRM (3051) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2006
Brown bottle, 341 ml, bottled in February 2006, purcahsed on April 13, 2006; eye: pale straw, white head that disappears almost instantly, a bit of effervescence; nose: damp corn, malt, salt; mouth: not much taste, a bit of wet corn, a bit of bitterness, very slightly sweet, light body, thin and watery texture, a bit of carbonation, no finale per se, absolutely no comparison to the sample I had at the 2005 Montréal’s Mondial de la bière en 2005 where I fell for its salty side; overall: big disappointment FRANÇAIS Bouteille brune, 341 ml, embouteillé en février 2006, acheté le 13 avril 2006; oeil : paille pâle, mousse blanche qui disparaît presque aussitôt, un peu d’effervescence; nez : maïs mouillée, malt, sel; bouche : peu goûteuse, un peu de maïs mouillé, un peu d’amertume, très légèrement sucrée, corps léger, texture mince et aqueuse, un peu de carbonatation, pas de finale pour dire, absolument aucune comparaison avec ce que j’avais goûté au Mondial de la bière en 2005 où le côté salin de la bière m’avait ravi; en résumé : grosse déception
