Maris (1384) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2016
From a 650ml bottle on 2/1/2015. Pours a clear dark golden with a small head. The nose is typical big Belgian - fruit, yeast, candy. Take a sip and its sweet and fruity, and definitely lighter than youd normally expect from a quad. This is a really sugary, fruity, oaky sipper, with a hint of warming alcohol. Pretty easy drinking for 11%. The texture is slightly syrupy and the carbonation soft. Not super complex or challenging but very enjoyable.

Bottle. Cloudy golden amber pour with a thin white head. Aroma is some citrus zest, touch of tropical fruit. Taste is rich and fruity, touch of bread. Nice.

rayaron (1391) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 22, 2015
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.

Aroma of malt, yeast, oak and fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, yeast, cherry and oak. The finish is fruity with a yeast and cherry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
