Beer Review 46 // Tam Tam by Matera

Welcome boozehounds to the next installment of my beer reviews. I'm on a bit of a Quebec beer run at the moment, reason being they just excite me more. Ontario breweries that are readily available to me at the LCBO just aren't doing it for me. So a quick trip across the river to an IGA or Broue Ha Ha gives me better results for my money. So let us jump in.

Details

Name: Tam Tam

Style: Session IPA

Brewery: Matera Facebook

Country: Canada, Quebec

Price: $3.25 CAD (damn quebec prices.)

ABV: 4.75% (so precise lol)

Commercial Fluff
"Beer hopped hopelessly cold and fruity, with fruity and supra-tropical aromas. A thirst-quenching beer generously dry-hopped with fruity and supra-tropical aromas. Note: The first brew was brewed at Broue Shop"

Own Opinion

Bottle Art: Love this can! The blue stands out wonderfully with it's playful character taking centre stage with his bogo barrels.

Sight: Slight cloudy beer but pretty golden in colour, capped with a white foamy head that leaves some great lacing as the beer is consumed.

Aroma: Tropical fruits shine on through. Along with a hint of cereal.

Taste: Dry finish with a slight bitterness. A stronger fruity aspect would have made this beer great. Overall a solid session ipa but not groundbreaking.

Would I buy it again? No. It was a good intro to this brewery and I did enjoy it but does it stand out compared to other Sessions? No, frankly it doesn't. So time to move onto the next beer. What does interest me is the fact it has Sunday Beer written on it (see picture). Does that mean they are doing a beer for each day of the week? I sure hope so. I look forward to trying another beer from them soon.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried it, if so drop me a comment below. Cheers!
