3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a surprising gold color with a creamy white head. This is a Quad? The aroma is fruity with banana, peaches, orange and hints of spice. The flavor has big tropical fruits, peach, mango and mild spice with only distant hints of barrel. I was disappointed that there wasn’t more complexity, but it does have a nice spicy finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[22oz bottle] Pours a dark hazy golden, almost amber with thin, fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is classic sweet belgian yeast, spice and malt mixed with a tart winey note. Taste has some citrus and crisp white wine notes with a late spice finish as it warms - fun complexity. balanced palate - a touch oily? Thought about aging this one - may do so with the next.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Pours deep gold with a white head. Nice Belgian aroma, spice, wood. Good flavor, sweet - but the 11% ABV I thought was well hidden. Decent brew.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours a pale copper color with a modest haze and whispy white head. Nose is a beautiful blend of Belgian spices, fruity, and yeast. Tastes primarily spicey with some of the yeast coming through. Any fruit elements are gone. Seems to be off the beaten path from other quads... its ok, but it didn’t really deliver in the taste dept.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours an almost amber with big head from an aggressive pour. Smell is of Juicy Fruit gum through and through. Taste is complex but outside of citrus notes the fruit is lost. Interesting beer but nothing I’d come back to.
