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.

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
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 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. 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
