Bière d’inspiration irlandaise, rousse aux malts caramélisés. Elle est modérément houblonnée, à dominante plus douce et plus maltée (pain grillé, noisette). Bière gouleyante, légère et peu alcoolisée (4,8 % alcool), elle accompagne parfaitement un jambon ou une viande cuisinée ainsi que les fromages à pâte molle ou mi-dure.

33cl bottle. Pours a dark red with an offwhite head. Smells a bit of caramel, lots of malt, and a bit bready. Tastes of a medium sweetness, with a large bitter finish. Texture is rough, a bit sand-papery, with mild carbonation. Not a fan, and it doesn’t do the style much justice.

King_Alex_II (622) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Ruby brown color with some foam. The smell is very shy. The taste is roasty with a lively carbonation. Close to balanced. The aftertaste is decent and fast decaying. Solid beer, but way below its potential.

Dark amber color with small head. Malty aroma, some milk as well, caramel as well. Taste is milky, a bit caramel, okay. Not Trois Dames level as it could be.

33 cl bottle. Pours a hazy brown color with almost no head. Aroma of berries and malts. Taste of cherries and caramel. Light bodied with a medium carbonation and a sour finish. Quite disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Je trouve que c’est une excellente ale. La robe cuivre foncée est élégante, légère mousse. Le goût est classique mais le dosage malt d’orage-houbon est bon, léger retour fruité en bouche. Je la recommande avant une I.P.A

Sweet malty, nutty with a trace of hops aroma. Pours dark reddish brown with a thin small bubbled tan head. Some balanced sweet and salty tastes, raisin notes with a lingering hops finish. Nice carbonation. Very well made and drinkable.

Bière rousse légère bue en bouteille. Bons arômes torréfiés sur la langue. Goût "ordinaire" pour une ambrée

AdiBeer (2083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Aroma: intense fruits, caramel malts, dry sweetness. Appearance: hazy brown, small, beige head. Taste: light bitter and sour. Plate: sour, dry bitters continue, very dry finish, not much flavour, some dry fruits. Overall: this is not at all my cup of tea, what a weird interpretation of an Irish Ale. Bottle from Drinks of the World, Bern HB.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a chalice. Nice Trois Dames specimen. One of the best Swiss breweries which can be easily distinguished in a market controlled by the poor quality and high distribution breweries. A: Beautiful deep red-amber cloudy color with a small yellow head which dissipates quickly leaving few nice lacings in the glass S: Caramel malt and flowery hops basically. Also a bit fruity and citrus T: Caramel malt, citrus and caramel. Nice bitter end also a bit sour M: Light body. Low to medium carbonation. Low ABV. A bit molasses with a nice bitter "hoppy" end D: Good. Nice beer with the Trois Dames quality [ BA Review @ 6/24/2010 ]

330ml bottle from Drinks of the World, Winterthur. Shared with blackhaddock down there on a train replacement bus en route to a Midlands beer tasting. Pours chestnut brown with tan head. Aroma of dark fruits. A touch of Irish red ale in the taste, but I don’t know if that’s because Jeremy mentioned it. A pleasant Swiss red ale with decent malts and fruit.
