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. drtbrewster (40) - Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Really sour taste and aroma, packs a bunch and is quite pronounced. A great beer for it’s style. Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 7, 2010
Bottled 75cl. Absolutely mindblowingly fantastic. Underrated in my opinion. An incredible experience. Complex and extremely delicious. Reminiscence of lemon peel, horse blanket, vinegar, apricot and oak. A masterpiece. KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2011

OVERALL: well and truly exceeds expectations, innovation on a style, shows real creativity even though it is Swiss. doublebock (558) - California, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Black with minimal carbonation and thin white head. Musty tobacco and soy aroma. All kinds of flavors happening here; cherry, vanilla, flank steak and chocolate liquor all rounded out nicely with a tart sweetness.

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.
