COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DuffMan (10429) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a bright clear golden with a lacy white head. Aroma of clean grains and hints of fresh pineapple. Flavour is all clean grains, slightly sweet, with a low grassy hop note in the finish. A clean, well made lager.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2010
12 oz bottle. Bottled on Nov 2009, so Im surprised this still smells fresh and hoppy. Pours a beautiful deep bright golden with a nice fluffy head- lasting and some sticky lace- seems like nice lively carbonation. Aroma is doughy nice pils malt, bread, light cracker and slight grass mixed with just a slight hint of corn but good herbal fresh hops- aroma seems not too far off of a sunshine pils from troegs that I have been drinking lately. Flavor is pretty good- ok pils malt upfront with doughy bread and good hops upfront then it kinda falls off a bit thin with some crackery pale malt, light acetaldehyde apple in the back of the mouth, and hints of corn- flattens out a bit more when you get halfway through the glass and turns a hint more cidery with a more limp body than the first few sips- hops fade a bit and turn slight grassy metallic with a thin cider tang on the end. Finish is thin and a bit lame and seems a bit dead in the mouthfeel despite what appears to be large carbonation really doesnt fizz up at all in the mouth? Strange beer that starts off like it might be great but finishes off a bit disappointing.

341 brown bottle : clear yellow no head, soft carbonation. Aroma : nice cereal, herbal hops. This beer is really crisp and refreshing. Light in body. A nice transition beer for macro drinkers.

Non sans rappeler les lagers commerciales, l’Écume réussit tant bien que mal à conserver une trace de son héritage. Heureusement. Loin de pouvoir compétitionner avec les autres produits de À l’Abri de la Tempête.

Bottle. Purchased accidentally when wanting to buy corne de brume. I can’t say this is bad beer, very crisp light cookie aroma and taste. Just enough malt sweetness to make it quite refreshing. Its major downside is its price which is just phenomenal for what it is.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Thanks to M. Alain at the Montreal Bonisoir shop for pointing this out to me. Clean pale yellow; thick frothy head. Light slightly salty aroma. Quite the thirst quenching flavor. Very crisp, very tasty. Lightly hopped but very effective. Slightly salty. Imagine if this could be people’s every day beer of choice instead of Bud Light. Then I could stop making fun of them.

Fred82 (2324) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
341ml bottle 2008/11. Pours clear yellow with a medium head. Short retention. Leaves lacing. Nose is grain, malt and cookies. Taste is mild bitterness, rather dry finish. Malt and grain. Very refreshing. A bit citrusy. Nothing really special but good enough. Maybe a little pricey for what it is (3.29$CAN).

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2009
Dégusté avec Pyrozoid. Apparence d’un jaune pipi (désinvolte) avec petite mousse blanche. Arome de miel, blé, mais, citron avec légère présence de banane verte. Amertume prononcé au début avec une finition sec. Gout uniquement créer le houblon... Bière de tout les jours de qualité moyenne. Un peu décevante après avoir dégusté une corne de brumes.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2009
Bouteille de 341 ml. Dégusté avec french tickler. Une biere de couleur blonde avec un collet presque absent. Odeur de miel, blé, citron et un soupcon de raisins. Gout de blé, bois humide, resemble un peu a un vin mousseux.

3.3
Frankieboy (12) - ste-justine, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Goût très raisonnable et à la fois abordable. Épuré, mais à la fois aussi relevé. Un col généreux qui ne dure pas cependant. Le col ressemble effectivement à de l’écume. Plus riche en goût que la moyenne des blondes, mais qui ne se distingue pas côté originalité du goût.
