dandeman (778) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2013
Olfactif: Un superbe amalgame d’herbes et épices des Iles. Accents floraux, poivre, conifère, algues marines. Un nez très original aux notes d’herbes, d’épices et de fleurs très prononcé. Visuel: Blonde / paille, très claire, à mousse de moyenne épaisseur, a persistance moyenne également, avec une petite dentelle discrète. Gustatif: L’attaque est tout en épices avec une légère acidité. La palette de saveurs est magnifique. des herbes variées, du conifère, des fleurs sauvages et des algue marines. Un vrai gout des iles. Son corps est léger, sa texture aqueuse. Pétillante à souhait, elle est savoureuse et rafraichissante.

HippyHop (577) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pour is pale gold with a clean white cap that’s gone in a flash. Notes is lots of steeped flowers/tea, lemon, hay, faint bread dough. Taste is light and crisp and refreshing. The flowers/herbs are dominant, but in no way overpowering. and there’s a nice bitter, peppery kick on the finish. It’s February, but this is a great summer beer.

bedainedebiere (507) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2011
Bouteille, 3,89$ pour 341ml. Arôme de foin coupé, de gazon, de fleur. Les saveurs mèlent une touche, caractéristique de la maison, de foin et de céréales, rappelant leur Terre Ferme, à une prédominance fruitée évoquant la banane. Houblonnage sec, herbeux, moyennement intense mais très complet en bouche. Texture plutôt aqueuse mais agréable. Différent mais, comme toujours avec eux, désagréablement trop cher... Mais c’est bien fait et plutôt agréable.

Tricker (365) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
Bière blonde de 5.8 % d’alcool. Beau col au versement, odeur prononcée d’épices, coriandre ou marjolaine. Elle possède un goût prenant d’épices, mais ne possède cependant aucune amertume liée aux agrumes. Elle possède un beau goût et elle est rafraîchissante.

Gluepot (327) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
A massive taste accomplishment at 5.5% abv. The nose pops with coriander, cloves, and sweet malt. The colour is lager-like with a fluffy white head. The taste profile delivers on the spices in the nose in a big way. Coriander, cloves, peppermint and hint of pepper are prominent over sweet bready malt and some juicy citrus and floral hops. A whole whack of taste on a solid body with appropriate carbonation.

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2011
341ml bottle, out of the breweries marked Jar Glass. pours a rather boring pale yellow, with a fluffy white head that quickly dissipates. there is something very unique in the bouquet. notes of cloves and fresh herbs are dominating the aroma. the hops bring out a nice citrus smell. in the mouth it starts off with herbs. rosemary, sage, thyme. then an acidic, citrusy taste comes along. finishes with very mild bitterness. medium bodied, average carbonation. this beer is very, very refeshing out in the sun. a pleasure to drink. when i bought the beer, i was expecting a Saison. this is totally NOT a saison. i figure its name is more a dedication to the beautiful season of summer. very well done, on par with if not better than Terre Ferme.
