Bottle. orange color. Raisin and some grassy hops in the vinous aroma. Malty sweet, honeyish raisinny vinous flavor. Hardly a sign of alcohol. Deceivingly soft beer.

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...

Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville. Reddish amber w/ almost no head. Banana esters and rotten produce in the aroma. Taste is the same, with thankfully less rot. Alcohol warmth. Slightly off balance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled: Orange coloured. Clear. Ha no head. Alcahol, fruit and some spices in the aroma. Is fruity, malty and very sweet in the flavour. The alcahol is very dominating but spices are present as well. Ends on a sweet and alcaholdense note. I’m not really in to this beer, and would prefer a belgian Abt anytime.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprised I haven’t had this one yet (or have I?). Dark copper color with a thick orange/brown head. Pretty good lacing. The aroma is mostly yeast along with some grapefruit and spice. Rich body, and despite not being as complex or flavorful as the best-of-breed in the style it is still enjoyable for the most part. The yeast flavor is at the forefront again, with spice and peppery alcohol undertones. There is a bit of sweet malt hiding in there too. The finish is dry and spicy with a slow alcohol burn. Overall this is a pretty solid brew.

Poured a hazy medium bronze/copper color with a small off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel, cinnamon, and sugar. Very sweet. Flat watery body. There’s something about this beer that gives me a headache everytime I drink one.
