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. 2-Row Pale, Flaked Barley and Wheat Malt build the beer up, while Saaz hops balance it out. 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%! Estimated Original Gravity: 1.068-1.073 Estimated SRM: 7.7 Estimated IBUs: 7-11
