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!

Bottle, at home, drinking it as I’m writing. Golden-red color, small head. Aroma, light citrus, very herbal/floral. Taste is a mix pine spices, very smooth. Finish is a bit abrupt. What is this, an IPA, can’t be, an APA? In a way it is one of a kind PA. With Corne de Brume from À l’abri de la Tempête, another very good beer.

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!

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.

Couleur dorée légèrement trouble avec un beau col blanc. Nez d’agrumes de résines et de céréales. En bouche c’est un beau mélange de caramel,d’agrumes,de résines et de céréales bien balancé. Corps moyen, carbonation moyenne. Moyenne amertume, une bonne IPA dans la moyenne!

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml. Dégustée le 16 janvier 2010. Bière blonde dorée limpide. Mousse assez, col mince blanc assez durable. Peu effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur florale prononcée, d’épices en finale. Douce, peu sucrée, assez amère en finale. Saveur assez corsée, épicée en finale (gingembre?). Un peu surprenante, très parfumée sans que ce soit excessif. Bière assez robuste, alcool ne ressort pas trop. Très bonne mais un peu chère comme la plupart des bières de cette microbrasserie.

pourquoi payer 5 fois le prix? Je sais que les frais de transport ne sont pas donné pour faire sortir la bière des Iles-de-la-Madeleine mais quand même... légèrement houblonné, légèrement herbacé, légèrement apprécié

Couleur pêche trouble. Mousse crème tenace. Odeur de gingembre, de clou de girofle, poivre et de fruits. Saveurs complexr d’abricot, malt, épices et un peu houblonné. Savoureuse !

341 ml bottle. Pours a flaky golden orange with a resilient white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy hops. Flavor is orange, tropical fruits, sweetbread. Finish is orange and grapefruit. Dry. Medium body, strong, borderline aggressive carbonation.

Une mousse fine mais persistante trône au sommet d’un liquide d’une couleur orangée. Inutile d’insérer son nez bien profondément dans le verre pour renifler les arômes puisque ceux-ci émanent avec vigueur durant le versement. Un fumet herbacé et des parfums épicés et citronnés sont notables, ça sent merveilleusement bon! C’est un branle-bas de combat en bouche où toutes les saveurs luttent pour se démarquer, il y a des épices, un petit côté sucré, un petit goût de sapin et l’aspect salin typique à cette microbrasserie enveloppe le palais. Une pointe d’amertume insistante en finale vient prolonger le plaisir. Un vrai délice.
