3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle I purchased in 2011. A little on the light side for a quadrupel. Aroma is strong and like apple juice, very fruity, a little banana. Taste is also a lot of apple, pretty sweet, very juicy and flavorful, but falls a little flat on the palette. This is nice, but I feel like the darker more complex notes are missing. Might’ve gotten lost over the years.

22 oz. bottle. color is dirty amber with a few pieces of yeast floating around. Thin head with head retention. Aroma is dark fruits, candy sugar, and toffee.
Flavor is much the same of the aromas with the addition of sweet bread and hints of alcohol in the finish. The body is lightly yeasty and medium in mouthfeel.
Food pairing: Goes well with wild game and artisan cheese.

Overall a nice quad, if a bit uninteresting. Pours a beautiful bright red with a brown head. Smells of malt, alcohol and a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is very smooth, with a boozy finish. Almost a bit watery. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Cloudy amber pour. Dark fruits, a touch of pineapple and oak. Sweet candied fruit and malt too. Pretty tasty, but not my favourite quad. A little light bodied for the style, but again - still pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a short head on a hazy dark straw colored body.
The aroma is rich and fruity: orange, mango, pineapple and spices. Really good.
The taste is quite sweet beginning to end, but it has a decent balance going on. The finish is long and sweet.
The texture is a bit sticky with lower carbonation.
It’s a nice sipping brew.
