illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle from Boutip. Pours a hazy amber with an off white head that dissipates to a a ring. Floral and perfumy aroma. Medium bodied with a fine carbonation. Of pale belgian malts, countered by a grapefruit and mango type hoppiness. This must have a Belgian yeast strain, because it’s sort of bretty. A tad astringent on the finish, but alcohol nicely hidden. Interesting and actually enjoyable. I was worried because it leaked in transit, but it still had 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.

dnicolaescu (1102) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 17, 2015
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.

Baran 060914. Red golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, hop, caramel, grain. Flavour is sweet, malt, hop, grapefruit, peaches, caramel, grain, citrus. Full body. Nice/OK beer.

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.

rondphoto (2649) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 13, 2015
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.

eduardovl (1025) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
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 [ BA Review @ 11/4/2010 ]

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

Pindoc (120) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Ein hellocker farbener Schaum krönt das rotbraune, trübe IPA. Schaumschwaden perlen dem Glass hinab. Ein markanter Hopfenduft steigt in die Nase. Der erste Schluck ist süssbitter. In der Süsse werden die ersten Aromen frei, bis sogleich eine immer stärker werdende Bitterheit den Gaumen umspielt. Das Bouquet entfaltet sich dann halbbitter bis starkbitter in der Kehle und entfaltet wiederum einige Aromen, bis es unter der Zunge fein prickelt. Ein starkes Bier, mit einem staken Nachhall!

bulldogops (1111) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Rating #1048 - March 30, 2014 - Older bottle from Jasper Liquor Merchants. Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is spicy, earthy hops, mild berry sweetness, mild citrys. Taste is very syrupy - hops have faded significantly i would imagine. Can’t give full praise to a hopless DIPA but despite its shortcomings, the beer was drinkable.

Holmen1 (3221) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2014
0,33 flaske hjemført fra Sveits av Einar og delt med ham: vakker, klar rødlig ravfarge med beige, varig skum. Flott aroma av grapefrukt og godt moden mango. I smaken er der i tillegg lys karamell. Rund munnfylde og fruktig bitterhet i avslutningen. Vitalininnholdet ligger veloppdragent i bakgrunnen.
