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.

Amber color with small head. Malty, resinous. Quite malty. Not too fruity taste, bitter finish, but medicinic bitter. Soft carbonation. Okay, a bit too "bready" for my taste.

Benzai (11068) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2015
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.

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.

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.

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 [ BA Review @ 11/4/2010 ]
