This beer was initially brewed as a collaboration by Kathleen Hale of Hale’s Ales, Jessica Husted and Reina Powers of Der Blokken Brewery. Belgian yeast blend, Saaz hops, 2-Row Pale Malt, Flaked Barley and Wheat Malt, and finally Tart Cherries make up this brew.

Trés Fem is a delicious, crisp, very drinkable ale that combines a smidgeon of tartness with a delicate cherry flavor, strongly reminiscent of a Belgian Kriek.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Slightly hazy golden red color with a thin film of off-white head. Sweet malt aroma with clove and banana. Bready malt, apple juice, and tannic cherry skin flavors. Vanilla-ish cherry pit flavor component in the finish, with a lingering sweetness reminiscent of a glazed sweet roll. Mouthfeel is medium, trending towards sticky.

fiulijn (20497) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2016
Tasting at Eugene’s
Cloudy golden color with small head. The aroma is a bit perfumy, lightly fruity, oldish. The flavor is also sweetish, also because of lack of bitterness, some oak, fruity esters, and some booze.
Old, a bit weird, not too bad.

Got to enter some back log to brake up the imp stout tasting ticks. 22oz bottle pours out peach golden topped with a white head. nose is a nice cherry spice some earthy notes and sweetness. taste is more of the cherries spice light tart notes and a little sweetness.

22oz bottle. Golden clear beer. Natural cherry flavor, clean golden ale with low esters. Just a very nice golden Belgian cherry beer with no sign of age

Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Sample at Hoof Hearted during the Dragonsaddle Triple IPA Can Release on 11/15/2015. The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of fruit, wheat and malt. Medium body with flavors of cherries, herbal wheat and biscuit malt. The finish is fruity with a mildly tart cherry aftertaste. Decent overall.

jandd1983 (4330) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting thanks to Hayduke. It poured an amber gold color with a white head. The aroma was moderately bready with a trace of some cherries. The taste was of some spicy caramel notes with faint cherry traces. Very nice.

Strykzone (7357) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Sampled at ESBLS. From Doran via Hayduke. A kind of peach colored beer that is hazy. An off white ring. Some funky yeast in the aroma with cherry. Cherries are tasted prominently and almost make up the entirety of the flavor. Earth. Some tartness and mild bitterness. A nice dessert beer.

phaleslu (10264) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by Keir- thanks again! Pours a semi-cloudy gold with a small white head. The aroma has a ton of cherry, with sweet malts, spices, and herbs. Flavor of sweet and dried cherries, sweet malts, and syrup. Pretty straightforward, with a cherry juice character. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy, malty mouthfeel. Interesting beer.

poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bomber. Pours hazy orange with a medium collapsing beige head. Aroma is strong in cherries, almonds. Taste is sour cherries; not mouth-puckering like a sour ale but definitely nice and tangy. Highly carbonated with a medium body. Not bad at all.

hayduke (5205) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 10, 2012
From a 22 oz bottle purchased at Paul’s Grocery in McCall, ID. Pours a rich gold with a big and attractive white head Good lacing. Nose of sour cherry. Medium body. Carbonated mouthfeel. Flavor is of ripe fruit with cherty dominating. The finish is somewhat tart. Very drinkable.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2012
22. Pours a hazy burnished medium amber with a wooly light tan head. Thin rings of drippy lace. Odd nose of soft, rather synthetic cherry quality combined with a little bit of shortbread cookie. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Shortbread and faint cherry mid palate, kind of like a little christmas cookie with a cherry frosting that’s not too sweet.
