Bottle. The problem with the Avery "The" series (Czar, Reverend, Majaraja, Kaiser), is itís hard to remember which ones youíve had. Now that Iíve finally had the Reverend, Iíve had them all, so I donít need to worry about it. Clearly underrated, there appears to be a bias against Avery for some reason. This is clearly one of the top 10-15 brewers in the country. Relatively faint aroma with some Belgian qualities. Slightly hazy copper body. Large yellowish, off-white head. Beautiful copper with lots of visible carbonation. Excellent lace. Very sweet and strong. Similar to New Glarus Unplugged Belgian Quad. This has a little more hop in the finish and is better than the NG. Excellent.

The beer is very tasty, i had it in a 1pint 6fl OZ bottle. It was a gift, and I love belgian beers. I am not sure what quadrupel ale means but it is very very tasty. My favorite beers are hoegarden and guiness.

Tasted from a bomber purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Pours a medium head with a slightly dark copper body. Very nice sweet head. Amazing sweet Belgian taste. One of the better American Quadrupels out there.

Ok, as a Reverend my rating might be suspect and I wouid understand. However, this is a great USA Belgian clone particularly with all that candi. Hi G beers have a great nose - bananas. The color is a clear light orange. The head is white and long lasting.

I believe this is one of the best Quads coming out of the U.S. and it gives some of the best Belgians a run for their money. The aroma presents the yeast and malt very well. The deep brown color with a little head seemed typical of thIs style. A pleasant mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. The malty sweetness was readily apparent and the alcohol was there but did not overshadow theflavored. A great choice for relaxing at the end of the day.

"Natural" sweetness (honey maybe?). A light airiness that fills the palate while maintaining a full bodied flavor. A pleasant woody bitterness at the finish. Smooths out as it sits.

Aroma smells hoppy with a floral smell, and somewhat yeasty. Appearance pours a golden brown cloudy color with a tan head. Taste is a combination of a light bitterness. Palate has a full body taste, texture is creamy, carbonation is flat, and the finish is slightly bitter. Overall it is a wonderful beer to drink!

better than expected. redder than expected. very sweet. very stern. settles in hard like a good swig of red clay. i like this. will buy it again. we bought it in a big bottle and poured it in little round wine glasses. that seemed fitting, if not perfect. perhaps i should brag more on my choice of serving glass than the actual beer. but the beer is why weíre here. so, buy it, ya know. i like it.

Nice amber color in my glass. One finger head that leaves a slight film on top of the liquid. Slightly decent lacing.
BIG maltiness. Very sweet malty nose. Sweet candy sugars. Butterey, yeasty bread. Light citrus and banana notes.
Quite abit more mellow than I expected, but that is not a bad thing. Very nice caramel notes. Apple and banana notes. Sweet malt flavor. Big yeasty bread profile. Slight spiciness on the finish. The alcohol bite I expected at 10% is not here at all.
Feels very creamy in the mouth, yet still smooth and drinkable. Almost velvet-like.
Drinking several bottles of this in a session would be easy. The drawback is that with 10% ABV, you wonít remember doing it.
