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!

Bière de 6.2 % d’alcool. Couleur brun-rouge, odeur fruitée et/ou florale, fort agréable. Légère amertume en bouche, mais très intéressante. Goût légèrement sucré. Excellente !

Gouteuse bière épicée, similaire à la corne de brume de la même micro-brasserie. Ça goute rouge, je ne sais pas trop comment décrire.

Clear dark golden pour covered by a smallish white head that I’d have prefered taller though it sticks to the glass. Strawy, almost grainy malts hold a certain husky twist and a certain... is that terroir? tang. Herbal, spicy (savory, pepper, SAGE!), wild flowers aroma grow into tea-like territory, developping a certain astringence that I could imagine one would call chalky, but just seems to fit and dry everything out to me. We’re left with a bready, gently toasty malt base that is really just a medium for the other UFO elements to communicate through. Long leafy (borderline vegetal), slightly lemony finish with sharp mineral leanings. Unique recipe that grew on me with every sip. Rediscovering beer, ain’t that what craft beer is all about? And they did push boundaries sideways rather than upwards which makes it hugely drinkable to boot. Two thumbs up. The conservative bastard that I am would be curious to try a version with a wheaty twist. What a fitting name too!

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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

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.
