330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow orange. No head. Just a couple of bubbles at the edge.

Smell - Fruity. Light grain malt. Some slight acidity.

Taste - Much fruitier. More distinct grape flavor. Grainy still and has a sharper acidity that I wouldn't call tartness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Very light tartness.

Overall - Nice fruit flavor and not a lot else. Tastes good though. (411 characters)

Color - A lovely slightly orangey gold

Aroma - some woodiness from the Gewurtztraminer barrel? Fruity, thick, yeasty winey.

Taste - do you like a white wine? Do you know non-beer drinkers who drink white wine? This is one to seek out to convert to a wine drinker to beer! The fruit clearly coming through here. You can convert a wine drinker with this one.

Mouthfeel - perfectly dense

Drinkability - DONE!

Now to the wordier part; I must state, I like spicy dry white wine, so this was bound to be a winner. I rarely look at a beer over 7% and say I need to get that, but when the bartender said "Gewurtztraminer", I said "I need that one"!

The dryness at the finish is exactly what works for me in a higher ABV fruitier beer.

I really dig the fruit and yeast interplay here and there is nothing negative I can possibly say.

I am so glad I got to have this on tap at Strangelove's in Philly ! (900 characters)

Jan. 2015 notched off on the label. Described as 'ale brewed with grapes'.

A - I have had this a few times before, so I knew what to expect and opened it over the sink - I suggest you do the same. Big ol immediate gusher that just keeps gushin', lost a few ounces, but it pours into the glass without much trouble. The girl on the label smirks at me as foam runs down her face. Color is very pale peach-orange with floaty flecks in abundance, which eventually collect as a blob that rests at the bottom. White head eventually settles at a solid half-finger and leaves bits of lace.

S - A little bit of a grape/white wine vibe, comes off more like apple juice or cidery to me. A little bit of spice, some vanilla wheat, slight funk.

T - Tart grapes make themselves more known here with a bit more musty funk too. Juicy sweetness cuts through the sour aspects. Wheat, light spice.

M - Decent body that, given the gusher-ness, is surprisingly pretty lowly carbonated. Kinda flimsy feeling. Tartness is light and the 8% is pretty well-concealed.

O - Not bad, really lacks the extremity and complexity of your average lambic/sour (feels more like a kinda-tart-witbier kinda) but pleasant enough. Though the whole gushing/full of flecks thing is a turnoff. (1,255 characters)

Pours a murky yellow-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of grain, grape juice, grape jelly, fruit, floral, and slight funk aromas. Taste is much the same with grape juice, grape jelly, yeast, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the smells on this one work slightly better together in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle. (709 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3

Appearance -The pour was a very light and clear golden yellow with almost no head.

Aroma -The Aroma is pretty one dimensional, grapes and must.

Taste -The taste was mostly sweet with a little bit of tartness towards the end.

Mouthfeel -The body was very light and effervescent.

Overall - It was actually a little disappointing not very sour and in comparison to the no. 2 it was overly dominated by the grapes. (417 characters)

Abbreviated review: sweet Reisling, white raisins, and a touch of green apple sourness on a thin body. (103 characters)

Tap pull into a room temp shaker pint.

A: L'Amoureuse No. 1 Blanche shows a cloudy straw to gold, hazy, with one finger of white slightly rocky head, dissipating to a nice cap; minimal lacing.

S: The nose is lightly funky farmhouse, white-grape vinous, and just the ever-so-slight hint of vinegar.

T: The taste is pleasantly smooth and somewhat complex. The balance between elements is extraordinary. A bit of fruit and ascetic sours, mellow malt, Chasselas grape and esters all blend nicely. Nary a hint of alcohol on the palate or the finish. The finish itself is just a bit dry, powdery, but smooth and satisfying while remaining unassuming. The sour character is somewhat reserved, not enough to pucker your mouth, but enough to play nicely with the other flavors.

M: L'Amoureuse No. 1 Blanche has a body in character with the nose and taste; medium with the nice, soft carbonation of a sour.

O: Very drinkable, but the abv of 8.0 is very well hidden, so don't let this one creep up on you. I've returned to this beer quite regularly since my first, and it grows on me with each tasting. It is not overwhelmingly great at first, but the more you drink it the more you appreciate it's subtleties. The flavor and mouthfeel are satisfying all the way through from chilled to nearly room temperature, so if you can take it in a snifter, wine globe, or tulip do give it a fair chance to develop and you will be rewarded. This is my third beer from Trois Dames, and at this point I look forward with confidence to trying and enjoying anything they offer. (1,558 characters)
