3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Murky copper. A whole lot of yeast in this one, but not much else going on. Maybe some dried fruit too. Kind of boring.

Bomber. Deep, hazy copper with a tan head. Dark sugar and tart aromas. Similar flavors with some alcohol burn.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Smells like raisins. A blackberry honey color in the glass. Drinking this out of a New Belgium 2014 snifter. Sweet, fruity, ever so slightly spicy finish. Johnny likey. Amen.

Very yeasty quad. Back bone is dark. Not worth repeating sweet but a bit boring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very boozy on the nose, but not to the tongue. The aroma is like diesel, but somehow in a pleasant way. It smells like a very clean hospital that used to be a wonka factory: sweetly sterile, and keeps you coming back. Very malty and incredibly sweet with a bit of subdued banana bread. Nice caramel color with a respectable head rounds this out to be a delicious beer, and, for the $7 I paid for the bomber, a damn decent buy.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from bomber into a tulip. It had a head. Nice cherry, malty aroma with slight hint of spice. Beautiful dark brown opaque color. Nice malty flavor with undertones of cherry and spice, but not overpowering. No diacetyl with slight touch of isoamyl acetate. Nice mouthfeel with slight bitter finish. Overall a very nice Belgian style ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle picked up at Homebrew Stuff in Garden City a couple weeks ago... Finally getting around to drinking it tonight.... Pours a hazy amber with a short lasting white head.. No real lacing and a flimsy cap.
Nose shows caramel and bready maltiness ... light clove and perhaps some cherry if I concentrate, but overall there is a dusty sweet wet paper.... This has to be a very poorly handled bottle.
Caramel and red grape dominate the palate but the same malty cardboard is again the big player.
Body and carbonation are about right.
Too bad, I remember liking this beer.
I have been burned at Homebrew Stuff a lot lately... Buy at your own risk. I suggest buying only stuff you KNOW is fresh.

Nice saison, sweet and slightly sour, pale color and great aroma. A great example of an interesting style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is medium amber to mahogany in color with a quick head. The aroma has a decent supply of Belgian sugars and pale biscuit malts but there is something else not unlike a grape or wine character. Not what I wanted in a Quad. 10% ABV is well masked on the nose and taste. Very sweet taste but also m ore fruity than spicy.
