The best barley of all grows on the Magdalen Islands. We harvest the windblown, salt-kissed grains and use them to concoct a malt with a maritime accent that gives our beers their unique character. Come to our microbrewery À l'Abri de la Tempête, relax by the sea shore and dip your lips in a brew as fine as spindrift.

Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours very clear pale blond, with low white head, fully diminishing. Aroma is of a lager, but sweeter than usual. Taste faint malt, faint hops, sweet. Extremely ligth stuff. Very high drinkability.

cleverlobo (319) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 12, 2011
bottle; clear pale yellow with small white head; aroma-caramel, hay, floral; taste-light sweetness, lightly bitter, don’t really get the saltiness. Watered-down...slightly evolved american lager if you ask me

Metalchopz (3339) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
Originally rated September 2006. Bought at the Dépanneur À-Tout-Prix in Laval, Quebec. Date on label says bottled since March 2006. Pours a nice rich golden colour with slight amber-bronze in it. Its big head disappears quickly, but leaves a bit of lace. Average consistent carbonation and a small layer coats the brew. Some light flakes float around. The aromas are pleasant with fruits, caramel and grain cereals. Medium syrup mouthfeel with a crispy finish. The taste are the same elements of the aroma... good cereal presence with some light caramel and fruit. A better-than-the-macros lager and hope to taste more from this brewery.

kubilai (111) - , Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
Golden beer topped by a small whitish head. Slightly smoked nose, bit of floral/herbs/salted water smells. Sweet taste of grass, hops and salt hints. Too watery for me. Great idea of beer but not enough complexity.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 D’un jaune pâle légèrement voilée, Il émane de cette bière une forte odeur de je ne sais trop quel gaz (butane?) Ensuite, je perçois des effluves de bord de mer, d’algues et à la toute fin, de malt. Son goût, plus doux que son odeur, rappelle un peu la menthe et la camomille. Elle laisse peu d’amertume, contrairement à ce que le brasseur annonce sur l’étiquette. J’avais un meilleur souvenir de cette bière. Peut-être est-elle embouteillée depuis trop longtemps? (déc ’10)

SlovakSniper (5516) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2011
Color is pale yellow with a small head. Light malt aroma. Fruitiness, salt meadows and marshes with funny herbal hops. Flavor is a clash between some sweetness and many species of grasses. Some humidity, salinity and bitter plants. Slight citrusy character. Thin body, strong carbonation, some carbonic bite. Plain aftertaste. Interesting stuff.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Pale straw golden pour. The aroma is quite fruity and estery with a touch of light diacetyl and more butterscotch. Slightly sweet with a bit of light fruitiness on the back. Not great.
