Tres Fem Golden Ale - Extract Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Belgian beer lovers rejoice! We were lucky enough to get Hale's Ales' Trés Fem recipe, and are now able to pass this along to our customers. This beer was originally brewed as a collaboration by Kathleen Hale (Hale's Ales), Jessica Husted and Reina Powers of Der Blokken Brewery. Tart cherries are what turn this semi-standard recipe into such a craveable beer. We recommend using our WLP550 Belgian Ale, or WY1762 Belgian Abbey yeast with this kit. Trés Fem is a delicious, crisp and very drinkable ale that combines a slight bit of tartness with a delicate cherry flavor, strongly reminiscent of a Belgian Kriek. We've added in our very own Tart Cherry Syrup which is how you'll acquire that tangy-sweet flavor when brewing this ale. Although this is a very drinkable beer, do not be fooled - the estimated ABV is 7.5%!

  • Makes 5 gallons

Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. To find our yeast recommendations, choose your preferred kit option above and then select the drop-down menu under “Yeast Options”.  For more info, click on the recommended yeast(s) below in the “You Might Also Need” section below. All included steeping grains will come milled.
Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

Where's the CHERRY flavor???
I was disappointed in the lack of cherry flavor and I even doubled the cherry syrup! Although it did taste good, but no CHERRY!

Got some weirdness
I was really excited for this brew. It sounded delicious. I prepped and brewed this beer in the same usual fashion and paid close attention to sanitation as always. (Ive got close to 50 batches under my belt). The beer came out clear and as far as I could tell, there was no contamination. I used Wyeast belgian 1762, two packs, and it fermented about 2 1/2 weeks, hit appropriate gravity and then I bottled. Well, it came out tasting like tomato soup. IDK what the heck happened but I taste no cherry... unless its cherry tomato I'm tasting. Ferm temps were within recommended. Zero tart. Not even a hint. Its "drinkable" but again... it tastes like tomato soup. Im wondering if the cherry extract was bad?

Outstanding extract brew
I've been all grain brewing for 3 years. I thought I'd take a break from the hours involved in the all grain process. So I bought this kit. I must say, although I can tell it is an extract brew, it is awesome. The cherry comes out nicely, not over powering. Very drinkable. I plan on doing another one closer to spring.

One of the more enjoyable kits from Morebeer yet!
Agree with James F; solid ABV, nice hint of fruit, wonderful head.

I have to say I was disappointed. I was hopping for a bit more of a cheery flavor.

Way to easy to drink
One of the best extract beers I have ever made. Added a little brett to the secondary for a little extra twang.

Super summer!
Great ale with light body, hint of sour cherry, and solid ABV. Looking forward to the back porch with this one...
