In Norwegian tradition alcoholic beverages are sent across the globe to benefit from the temperature variations one experiences when crossing the equator.

Editor’s note: Brewed at Bridge Road, bottled at Nřgne Ř. Shipped to Norway in barrels previously used for red wine.

Had this quite a while ago in Delirium Hoppy Loft. Didn’t rate it then, will do now. Really enjoyed this beer, was very full of taste and lots of wine taste in it. Is it really because of the story, no idea, but did enjoy it a lot in general.

Lukasmh (556) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle, nice label! Pours dark brown with reddish shine and slight frothy big ever lasting cream head. Aroma is very nice and sweet with slight acidity and some sherry grapes. Sweet fruits, some berries among over-ripe raspberries, caramel malts, toasty backbone. Red wine, oak and some vanilla. Taste is heavy sweet, then turns acidic. More quad in taste. Caramel, toasty malts, vanilla, some oak and vanilla. Some marmelade and berries. Quite high carbonation makes the body light for ABV. Really balanced. Slight bitter tannins. Alcohol makes finish dry along the toasty malts.

Very fruity, slight toast. Taste is really vinous! Dry oak, lovely tartness, vanilla, sweet, intense fruit. Crazy balance between the toasty, belgian sweetness and the dry, tart vinousness.

TET (2116) - FINLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Brewed 20.12.12, BBE 20.12.17, Batch 866B. A very dark brown, a head is big and light brown. Aroma has richness of dried fruits, prunes, raisins, also fresh fruitness of perries and banana, port wine, warming. Complex and enjoyable aroma. Taste is more straightforward than aroma, prunes raisins, perries, some grapes and barrel, also some spicyness in the end. Almost full bodied, nice carbonation is lightening the palate, quite smooth. I haven’t tasted this as a young but now as an older, matured and balanced. The fruitful quad, tasteful beer.

330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate creamy tan head. Aromas of balsamic vinegar, dark fruit and sweet roasted malts. Flavors of sweet doughy malts, reduced red wine vinegar and chocolate. Interesting mix. Nice.

Bottle from humlebingen.com, thanks! Wow, where to start... The red wine imprint is unquestionable, I would even go so far as to say it is this beer’s dominant trait. Red wine, wood, some funk, redcurrant, chokeberry, some apples, leathery notes. Absolutely fruity, ’red’, complex beer. Soft, full bodied, heavy, with the sweetness being skilfully balanced by just the right amount of tartness. It gets more conventionally ’quadruply’ in the finish, with notes of dark malts, like caramel, chocolate, even faint coffee. This transition from red fruit to dark malts does not affect the barrel notes, however - they are still there. Unlike the alcohol that is so well hidden that you’re no longer sure it’s even there. Exquisite.

Deep dark red pour. Aroma is cherry, berry fruits, mild yeast. Taste is red wine, mild oak, big malt prunes and dates presence, very nice with vanilla at end. Palate is medium carbonation and full. Not my favourite style but really like what they’ve done here.

A Nřgne Ř quadrupele Ausztráliában, a Bridge Road főzde falai között kelt életre, majd nemesedett a Norvégia felé tartó hajóút során vörösboros hordókban. Intenzív habkitöréssel ad bizonyosságot élettel teli karaktere felől, a laza szerkezetű, ám kellően tartós, puha és krémes habfolyam méltó díszét képezi a festői testnek, mely enyhe rubinvörös beütéssel bíró, mélybarna színben tündököl. Varázslatos aromái között az ódon vörösbor bársonyos ölelésében fürdőző mályvacukor, szivárványos élesztő és sziporkázó maláta körvonalai tűnnek fel, összességében egy flamand fanyar ale benyomását keltve. Belekortyolva örömmel nyugtázhatjuk, milyen mesteri módon sikerült kordában tartani az előzmények alapján megzabolázhatatlannak is könnyedén elképzelhető jegyek sokaságát. A sokszínűség itt valóban megtervezett formát ölt, így a leírva kissé kuszának ható elemek - melyek között a füstös feketecseresznye-fagylalt tompa, desszertszerű hatása, illetve a cseppnyi savanyú beütés élesítő jellegű, autentikus belga karaktere is felfedezhető - ízlelésük során remekül megférnek egymás mellett. Kivételes főzet, újszerű felfogásban készült quadrupel, melynek mélysége némelyekben talán tériszonyt ébreszt, s bár végtelen határainak feltérképezése kemény próbatétel elé állítja a meghökkent közönséget, megbirkózni a feladattal kifizetődő vállalkozásnak tűnik.

Excellent quad from the unlikeliest of partners, spanning the northern and southern hemispheres. Immediate aroma of pit fruit, pours out with nice fluffy head, murky brown body. Taste is plums and prunes, head lasts throughout session. If I didn’t know the pedigree, I would have guessed Belgian.
