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!

Bottle 341ml. Pours sligthly hazy golden with medium white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, malt, fruits, flowers. Taste is of spices, flowers, bitterness, malt, sweetness. Palate: light-medium body. Overall: Bitter finish. Very good. For me, it’s an IPA. I don’t get the low ratings on that one. Bottle inconsistency? I won’t mind making sure of that...

A very complex beer that unfortunately, wasn’t at all to my liking. Pours an opaque amber with thin head and noticeable unfiltered solids. Notes of yeast, berries, wheat, hardwood and wild flowers. Very bitter (in a bad way) and overly sweet at the same time; just over the line in my opinion on all fronts. Might be for some, but not for me. I wouldn’t buy it again.

Pale golden color. Aroma is floral, with a light aftertaste of banana. Very slightly bitter.

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with a bright orange glow and a very thick and luscious spotty lace off-white head. Aroma of nice sour grapes, oak, hay, grass, yeast, wheat, flowers, lavender, chervil and a bit of sage. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a lot of hay, grass and floral flavours with a hint of sweetness on the backend. Aftertaste is relatively light with only a bit of malt noticeable, but still a lot of saisony notes with hints of white peppercorn and a little earth and remnants of oak. Overall, an interesting and rather complex beer that shows fairly well. I sampled this 341mL bottle purchased from Best Cellars in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia [since closed] on 04-July-2011 for US$6.99 (A LOT) sampled at home in Washington on 10-May-2012.

I have to admit, I don’t like a beer that have a soapish - lavenderlike aroma and taste. And that one nailed it perfectly... To it’s credit, the lavender taste as a pine resin undertone to it that worths the try. Beside, I would have liked a little more carbonation and a sharper malt to match the floral aroma. But that’s just me...

341 ml bottle. Pours slightly orange in colour, nice frothy white head. Leaves tonnes of lacing. Kind of a weird one. Very unusual herbal aroma, taste of hops and odd earthy, cooked vegetable like taste. One is enough.

Bouteille 341mL. Doree-orangee partiellement troublee par des particules en suspension. Nez franc de grains et de miel. Bouche puissante de grains avec beaucoup d’houblon a saveur d’herbe. Quelque peu savonneuse.

cfrancis (2788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
Pours a cloudy reddish orange with a thin white top and good lacing. Aroma is lots of base mats, a little honey and grain. Taste is rather spicy with lots of malt and a small bitterness aftertaste. Not the right balance for me.

First impression is of an unpleasant aroma. The taste is a very cereal like maltiness that leaves the impression of a little bit of unfermented grain. The hop flavouring is very vegetable tasting. Very earthy tasting beer but tastes a bit off, too vegetable like.
