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!

2011-10-30. Crisp dark golden body, small frothy white head. 3+ Odd aroma, curry like first impression, like curry or fenugreek? Gives way to herbaceous hops. 6+ Flavour has similar green herbaceous character, funny fruit character, sort of tea like hops. Mild bitterness. 6+ Average to light body. Not to my tastes. Others quite liked it though. Cask Days 2011, Toronto

on cask at Volo Cask Days 2011. Pours with strong hoppy aroma and sweet ctirus taste. Was Terre Ferme East Coast IPA.

Bière de couleur ambrée, laissant peu de mousse en guise de col. Ça sent tellement bon; les fleurs, l’herbe fraîche, la coriandre, la cardamome, la sauge, la cannelle, plus subtilement le clou de girofle avec un air salin qui nous accroche au passage. Le goût est à la hauteur, le palais est autant sollicité que le nez. Des saveurs d’herbe, de fruits, de tire Ste-Catherine et de houblon éveillent nos sens en créant un manège des sens qui s’entremêlent franchement et de façon très efficace.

Bière blonde avec un mince collet , arôme et goût florale légèrement épicé. C’est une bière rafraichissante et agréable à boire. Bue en bouteille.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2011
Clear blond coloured beer with some very light carbonatoin and a short white head. Hoppy and fruity, little malty complete aroma. Some slight herby hints (mustardseeds?) Full palate. Finish is herby with some malthy hints. Nicely balanced.

belandzio (20) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
Cette bière nous ramène agréablement à nos voyages au Iles-de-la-Madeleine. Des notes d’épices (girofle) et de cuir, une couleur or-orange, peu de mousse, un goût acide amer, une finale un peu courte. Elle semble même piquante! Un début guère impressionnant, mais elle devient meilleure à chaque gorgée.

Pale amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is really interesting. Floral and a little bit spicy. There is a touch of almost mintiness. Peppery with a kiss of interesting yeastiness. It’s not all that hoppy, but it’s unlike anything vie had and it’s quite good. A little bit of soft pine needle-like fruitiness. Really tasty.

MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2011
Pours clear golden. Small whitehead, average retention, good and long-lasting lace. Aroma is interesting -- certainly floral, with hints of pale fruits. Rather spicy -- sage, rosemary and ginger. Terrific aroma for sure. Taste is floral hops-driven, but the mal backbone is pretty good. The spice -- which the aroma hinted at -- is still there, but not as gingery as aroma suggested. Mainly about sage and rosemary, actually. If anything, the malt, whilte being good, is somewhat generic. Great, but still generic, with no speacial features whatosever. Oily mouthfeel. Finale is long, but extremely smooth, and "fades", as opposed to "stops". Just the perfect level of bitterness, and quite spicy as well. That’s a beer I disliked at first. A few years later... Terrific! I kinda developed my tastes for bitter beers, which might explain. This said, this one is hard to categorize; close to EPA category, but it’s actually a bit pale and a little too spicy for a pure EPA. And it’s not like we’re in purely "spice beer" territory either.

pours clear golden with a decent white head. unusual aroma, fruity tartness, brettanomyces, salt. taste is salty malt - don’t know if it’s part of the marketing (island...). medium body, average carbonation. unusual but interestingly good...
