UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 Bottle at Bellwoods. Deep red colour with finely bubbled head. Lovely woody aroma with tart cherry, apricot, maltiness, some sweetish sour notes. Very complex. Flavours of woody cherries, middle is sourness with a touch of malty sweetness and funk, with lingering cherry skin and pit tartness. Lively carbonation. Tasty stuff.

Dark deep brown under a thin light tan head. Amazing nose that’s tart, dark, complex, a touch cocoa and woody, and lightly dark fruity. Crisp and tart flavor that’s dark and kinda cocoa-ish, sour, herbal, roasty and very delicious. Pretty nice albeit oxidized. Aged for an unknown amount of time. markducommun (1121) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Cloudy brown, minimal head. Dark rich cherry, stone fruit. Funky. Pretty sour, some sweetness. Quite vinegary. Lingering acid. Medium to heavier body. Long finish. Good. thedm (6223) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured no head or was fully diminished. The body was semi-transparent brown colored with no lacing. The nice aroma was funky farmhouse tart and sour. The flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The funky flavor contained notes of tartness and was sour. Not one that I would likely drink again. ads135 (4731) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 19, 2016
This is what I like my Oud Bruins to taste like. Syrupy, some Worchestershire sauce, and a lingering thick sweetness tempered by some funk. Bought at Beertopia in 2016. MetalNHopHead (2020) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - APR 24, 2016
My first brush with Trois Dames and one of the better Oud Bruins I’ve gotten to enjoy. Brown pour with a short-lasting head. Aromas of must (as in decay, not wine - that’ll come later), funk, earth, hay, dank wood, vinegar, and cherry. Flavors are complex and can be tricky to pinpoint at times. There’s a big vinegar note, but not like you might often experience in a sour beer. It IS acidic, but it’s got a vinous character that’s rich and nearly meaty. Almost like red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar. Tart cherry taste, too - plenty of rotted and soured qualities to the fruitiness. It’s all finished by a dry feel. This Dame’s got class.
