3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty aroma backed by Belgian candi, yeast and spice notes. Beautiful dark orange amber color with a white head that promptly ringed. A bit thin in body. Starts quite sweet, with dark sugar, dark fruits (in a light sort of way), and some varying spicy notes. The finish is mildly sweet, and there is not really a hint of bitter. Just a touch of what could be considered very ripe fruit.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one seems more like a liqueur than a beer. Clear orange with almost no head. Sweet aroma of spicy orange and cotton candy, hint of alcohol. Initial impression of rock-candied alcohol takes a couple of sips to get past (though you never really get over -- it’s defnitely cloying), but then you notice there’s actually genuine maltiness (caramel and fruity) and hop (not just alcohol) bitterness. Very light on the front and middle of the tongue, but the alcohol grabs the back of your tongue and into your throat. Cotton candy aftertaste.

Bomber bottle with a very interseting label. hazzy dark amber with medium head that diminished quickly. Complex sweet fruit aroma. Medium body with smooth texture. Complex full flavor with long sweet finish with a small alcohol bite. The brew was as interesting as the label.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours a lightly hazy deep orange with a small, creamy off white head on top. Aroma is complex with a vinious streak to it. Lots of fruits , rather ripe, some black currants, some oranges, some apples. All of it on a background of caramelly biscuit malts. Mouthfeel is rather oily and very full. Flavour is not as complex as expected from the aroma. The alcohol is quite present. The fruitiness prevails at first with a clear definition of raisins and apples. The malty meatiness is sadly a bit too subdued, only appearing in the aftertaste, where biscuit surely got some bite. This is a good Quad, but only good... compared to all the other Quads (from Belgium), this is nothing...
