3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade @ home. Very nice lightly hazy dark orange to reddish color, full sized off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, resinous and piney hops, lightly sweet even. Taste malts, lightly resin, lightly pine, resinous hops, bitter, but also a slight underlying sourish bitter hint. Slightly sticky texture, medium body and carbonation. Still solid though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big hoppy citrus aroma. Pours a cloudy or dark orange with a white quickly dissipating head with good lacing. Tastes of apricot and big hops with a steady sour finish with slight metallic notes. A very well made beer.

(bottle) slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy light-beige head. aroma of skunky overripe peaches and prickly pear, slightly resnous, with a touch of alcohol, white grapes and banana skins. flavour is mostly pale malts, caramel and orange peel, only slightly alcoholic, with some light mango and a light-bitter herbal-hoppy finish. heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

En ce qui me concerne, je préfère leur I.P.A. Elle est bien entendu très houblonnée et il me semble qu’il a quelque chose de grapefruit ou de pétillant. La robe est très belle orange-cuivre. Je pense qu’il est mieux de la boire en fin de soirée.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
BOTTLE 33 CL from Bov. BB aug-2015. Starts expectedly hoppy - not out of this world, but still - sweet fruit, grassy, lemon rind. But after a few minutes everything turns upside down... the fruit go away, leaving room for glue and sharp fusel alcohol. Tastes as bad as it smells - dry and very astringent, harsh phenolic bitterness. Like a homebrew gone wrong.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful clear amber color. Hoppy sweet smell. The taste is sweet with slight hoppy caramel notes. Relatively full taste with matching carbonation.
However sometimes is the taste dominated by a metallic finish. Probably a production error, that is sadly not a very rare phenomena with trois dames beers. This case would be 2.4.
I had both cases.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy amber brown with a bubbly beige head cover, lots of lace dots. Taste is caramel malt that gets punched by solid floral hops on the swallow. Not very complex, but it is very well-balanced. Strong and satisfying.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
Yes, we have Double IPA! This is a exciting discover: An Imperial IPA made in Switzerland... :)
A: Orange bit cloudy color (almost amber) with a small to medium beige head. Small retention and not many lacings left
S: Delicious flowery hops as it should be. Caramel malts. Citrus and very fruity smell. No alcohol (good point)
T: Delicious bitterness. Caramel malts. Sweet upfront. Earthy, grassy and citric hops. Fruity: Strawberries mainly. Yeasts. Very bitter: Great taste!
M: Creamy body. Medium to low carbonation. Molasses
D: To a beer with such ABV, I would say that it’s "dangerously drinkable". Extremely refreshing. The best Trois Dames I’ve had so far

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at Baran. It’s an unclear, reddish beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a faint cellar hint, caramel malts and some grains. Resiny, citrusy hops. There’s a fine bitterness in the mouth, with pale malts, karamel, resins and citrus. Medium to full body, semi-dry and nicely carbonated, with a pleasant caramel finish and bitter finish. A bit malty this one, but fine anyway. 140906
