3.48/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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

Serving type: bottle

330 ml bottle from Switzerland

Pours hazy copper brown with huge slightly off-white head with good retention, no lacing. Aroma is slightly fruity caramel with berries, bits of yeast.

Taste is quite fruity malt, berries, slightly sourish with mild spice, medium dry finish. Thin mouthfeel with more than average carbonation.

Overall, quite good beer, I just did not like the excessive carbonation.

UPD 2 years later. ABV is 5% now and carbonation is moderate now, so I would elevate it to 4.0. Otherwise a nice Red Ale.
