Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer and Beyond, Tel Aviv. Slightly hazy golden with small off-white head. The aroma is yeasty with notes of candy, peach and hint of banana. Very sweet flavor with notes of pomegranate and liqueur, very alcoholic, yeasty, some white wine sourness. Full-bodied. Quite hard to drink.

From a bomber. Pours a medium brown and makes a small head with little lacing. Aroma is of fruit, malted barley, and alcohol. Tastes malty and carbonated, with notes of pomegranate and wine. Very pleasing mouthfeel. A fine ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very enjoyable, it has sour notes, and it’s easy to drink despite the alcohol. Not like other quads I’ve had.

Darkmagus82 (2215) - - NOV 2, 2015
2015 vintage poured from bottle into a chalice glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep orange-copper color with a thick off white head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, very slowly fading over time to leave a bit of spider web lace on the sides of the chalice. Smell – The aroma is of a dark fruit smell of cherry, plum, and raisin along with a whole lot of a caramel and molasses sugar smell. Along with these smells comes some great aromas of a spicy smell with the spice being a mix of clove and coriander and with some yeast bringing some banana and a little bit of grass along with it. Other aromas of vanilla and some lighter fruits of apple and pear are also there as well and mix with the rest and a bit of oakiness and booziness to produce a fruity and warming sorta wine like smell overall. Taste – The taste begins with a with a nice fruity taste mainly of lighter fruits with a good deal of apple, pear, and peach, but containing some darker fruit flavors of plum and cherry as well. There are nice hints of vanilla and caramel sweetness which persist and complement the fruity tastes very well. These tastes remain throughout the brew, increasing in the middle of the taste and fading just ever so slightly at the end. Toward the middle of the taste some light yeasty and spice flavors of clove and coriander as well as a little bit of banana develop on the tongue. An oaky French wine taste develops on the tongue as the flavors progress further, matching the fruity and spice flavors very nicely. In the end, the booziness increases a bit and with the nice fruity and wine like characteristics of the brew, it leaves one with a sweeter and crisp flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is slightly light for a quad of 10.8 % with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The thin body was fantastic for the fruity and wine like characteristics of the brew with the higher carbonation giving a nice effervescent feel. Overall very well done. Overall - This was a very enjoyable brew. I am not sure I would consider it a quad, as its flavor (at least to me) was a bit more on the triple side of things with some hints of quad mixed within. Any which way you slice it however, this was a very nice brew and a very dangerously easy drinking brew overall.
