3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brown with a nice light-brown head with excellent retention. of brown sugar, caramel, toffee, and a moderate fruitiness including plum, raisin, and fig. Flavor is loaded with tons of depth. Deep caramel and honey glaze, with dark fruits but the alcohol presence is too overwelmng and unbalanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a large frothy light tan head that lasts awhile. The aroma is sweet fruit with caramel and molasses. Good sticky lacing along the glass. The taste is a spicy pepper and sugary malt with a dry finish. Hides the alcohol well, a very good Quad from Boulevard.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color is a murky brown with a hint of orange. Carbonation is very good with a soft off white head. Aroma of roasted caramel and yeast. Taste is light and sweet. Starting with a medium body it goes down easy with a light fluffy feel. Finish comes in with a light sweet fruity taste of pear, raisin and yeast then a touch of hops shows with a very light bitterness. After taste has a little alcohol showing as the flavors slowly fade. This is a good light Quadrupel with nice even flavors.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from South Bay. One of the best US-made Belgian styles I have ever had! A very pleasant surprise! Color is a too-light red-gold. Aroma is of sweet apple, oatmeal, and pure, sugary malt. Flavors are of those plus yeast, flour, semi-dark fruit and that Belgian quad sensation of drinking something light and dark. Very nuanced and as faithful as it gets here in the states!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasty quad, for an american brewery anyways. Aroma is plums, candy sugar, figs, cloves and yeast. Flavor is complex with raisins, cloves, bananas, yeast, candy sugar, toffee and malt. Mouthfeel is carbonated and somewhat syrupy. Overall a nice representation of a quad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Heather’s. Dirty copper color with firm head that turned to light lace. Grass and hay on the nose, with earthy sweetness following. Raisins and vanilly in the mouth, turning to an earthy sharpness. Alcohol. Lots of hay. Good, not fantastic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaqe reddish-brown coler with a moderate white head with good lacing. Very viscous. Banana, yeast and molasses in the aroma. Flavor is wonderfully complex, with a variety of flavors taking their turns--banana, clove, raisin, caramel and cherry. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous without being heavy. Alcohol is definitely noticeable. While it may be outclassed by the Trappists, as American-made Belgian-style beers go, this is an excellent entry.
