COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La TerreFerme est une bière bien charpentée qui vous conduit sur des sentiers houblonnés parsemés de riches arômes floraux et d’une amertume à la fois vive et délicate. Une bière reflétant le territoire rustique et bucolique que sont les îles de la Madeleine. Une attitude franche et végétale!

Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
Cloudy amber color with a powerful amount of activity. Frothy beige 3 finger head, lasting around 10 to 15 minutes, creating thick legs. Flavors of citrus orange and lemon, tropical fruits, herbal spices, caramel, floral, faint pine and roasted grains. Moderate amount of sweetness still with a thick bitterness. Smooth slick full body with an almost perfect zesty crispy carbonation. Strong and long finish, but still well intensified, ending with a butterscotch feel, thick citrus, grassy bitter hops, and sweet pine tar tongue coat. Overall excellent quality craft. Delicious flavors, superb balance, with a strong but pleasant finish that still feels very fresh. I really like the complexity and the strong floral presence. Filling and satisfying drink.

Pours a hazy golden color with a hint of copper/red. Small quickly dissapearing white head. Nose of floral hops mainly we also get some standard pale malt.Hints of tropical fruit as well. A bit of pine too. Mouthfeel is a bit dry. Not much carbonation. Feels a bit flat. Medium sweetness and medium dry lingering hoppy finish.

12oz bottle pour. Pours a very slightly cloudy golden copper with thin white head that sticks around,, and light to moderate lacing. Piney nose with grapefruit and loads of floral and herbal notes. Slight sweetness with a lasting dry bitterness. A bit resinous on the palate. Curious and complex.

s_r (129) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2016
Robe ambrée légèrement voilée et effervescente. Au nez on découvre surtout le malté de la bière. En bouche les notes résineuse (sapin, herbe sèche) dominent sur les notes caramel bien ronde. Un final avec une amertume pas pire !

bunget (844) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden-orange body, medium white head with good retention and plenty of lacing. Aroma of lemongrass, caramel, honey, peaches, orange candies. Taste of herbs, grapefruit zest, pine, honey, oranges. Oily and a bit harsh, but overall nicely done.

Gluepot (424) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
Nose is citrus, bready malt and candy cane. The taste profile picks up on the candy cane and citrus theme in the nose, including, lemon, pine, orange and peppermint making it a zesty and refreshing hop lead. Spices and floral hops come out later in the taste profile. A nice medium-high effervescence punches up the refreshment factor. Tasty, but could use a few balancing elements.

Flyguytruckguy (56) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Moderate hoppy aroma of pine and citrus, lemon/lime, slight dough yeast as well. Nice appearance. Huge, lasting, white head with excellent lacing over a hazy bottle conditioned medium amber body. Initially the flavor is lightly sweet with moderate bitter but then the sweetness seems to kick in and wham it hits you with a bitter finish. The finish long and bitter. Light to medium dry texture with fizzy carbonation. Rustique IPA, it sure is! Cheers!

Beardbeerman (339) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
341ml bottle served chilled around 8 degrees in a snifter: Pour a dark orange color with a certain haze. I got three finger of an off-white frothy head which showed outstanding retention and lacing properties. Towards appearance, this brew scores many points. The nose is sweet, yeasty an sweaty. There should be some piny hops but I didn’t really get them. I did, however, get a strong buckwheat aroma perhaps resulting from the blending of all the aromas or the presence of buckwheat in the beer itself. Since the list of ingredients does not appear on the bottle, I can’t confirm that information. On the tongue this brew is quite aggressive with a hoppy/piny (even soapy) punch and once again that buckwheat element previously mentionned does come through. The brew is dense and heavy with an oily feel and finishes ultra bitter. I can’t say I got any breadiness or caramel from the malts so there is a slight miss there for the balance. Overall I enjoyed this brew even if I thought the soapy attack pushed the malts out of the picture a bit. Bitter fans out there would certainly like it. Cheers!

Pours a cloudy light amber with two fingers of off-white cap. Nose is somewhat faint, but still busy: pine, orange, lemon, dried flowers, caramel and hay from the malt. Taste is a lightly sweet malt with orange, lemon, lots of tea-like floral character. Mouthfeel is light, slightly oily, with fizzy carbonation. Finish is moderately dry and bitter. Calling this a rustic IPA is probably pretty accurate. A nice little spin-off of my favourite style.
