Alright, here it goes. A: pours a copper ale with a single finger of white foam. These suds fall quickly to a thin and broken sheet of the same. Spotty lacing. Excellent clarity. S: Belgian yeast, candy sugar, lead, maybe a raspberry tone. Definitely can smell the rye whiskey. Not getting the pomegranate. T: Again, yeast, then some tartness and spiciness (rye like). Having a hard time placing a finger on the other fine flavors, but none is particularly dominant or appealing. M: Medium on thin body with waaayyy too much carb. Not smooth, doesnít allow me to really enjoy the flavors, keeps my tongue busy. O: Iím very disappointed with the beer as a whole. The yeast is too dominant to allow for the other flavors to shine appropriately. It, as is well known, does not flow with the typical Quad format, and is more like a tripel for me honestly. The yeast gives that chemical, clove on coriander tone. I will not be purchasing another bottle of this unless a trader of mine wants some. Serving type: bottle 09-16-2011

The beer pours decent with a solid golden straw/orange with a mild white ring of head, and no lacing on the glass. The beer smells decent with a prominent fruity nose and a yeasty finish. The taste is decent with a sweet fruity taste and a yeasty finish. The mouthfeel is average as the beer was okay carbonated and the taste fruity and better. Overall, an above average quad...nothing better than I can get from Ommmegang.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 30, 2013
22oz bottle. Pours clear chestnut amber, color with a half inch of fizzy, light khaki head that disapates quickly. Aroma is pomegrenate, rye, light whiskey and oak. Taste begins with a syrupy flavor, some pomegranate, white grapes, hint at booze, rye and vanilla on the finish. The finish is dry and boozy, leaving a chalky film on the palate. Full bodied and syrupy with fizzy carbonation.

Beermack (725) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 21, 2013
Pour from bomber at Monk's Cafe SF. Deep orange with thin lasting white head. Big whiskey hit in the aroma - quite fruity, cognac-esque - plenty of dark vinous berries in there too. Big sweet caramel hit. Bit of a harsh booze note. Taste gives booze up front, mellowing out into plenty of light figgy stuff, blackberry and strawberry, vanilla, bourbon, lighter tropical fruit, some melon. Mad stuff going on here. Big sweet booze note to finish, followed by sweet dark fruits and residual sweet bourbon. Big, boozy, but intriguing - i can imagine people with a sweet tooth would really get this, but it's a little too saccharin for my palate. Tasty and interesting stuff nonetheless.

Yeast takes center stage again, pushing past all the other goings-on to provide light banana and spicy earth notes. Pomegranate is much more noticeable and serves the beer well with itís underlying wine characteristics. Sweet white grape and warm, boozy alcohol immediately follow and segue into the caramel-malty finish.

MrHangover (3305) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle @ Deanís Birthday tasting, courtesy of kermis. Pours a light brownish beer with a small, off white head on top. Aroma is fruity, funky and quite disappointing for such a big beer. Flavour is too sweet, boozy and has a very watery mouthfeel. Very disappointing. Still quite a good beer, but does not match up to any other quads Iíve tasted. Too bad..

Zer0 (1168) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy copper. Aroma is red fruits and belgian yeast. Blackcurrant sweet. Too sweet. Bit like lemonade. Not that great. Full bodied.

worldbeertaste (1746) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Medium copper with a thin, white, lacy, lasting head. Smells of yeast, fruit, hay, juice, mango. Medium frothy oily body. Tastes of mango with an alcohol finish. Fruity, yeast. Ok much alcohol! Hardish to drink.

Bottle at Deanís Birthday Tasting, August 2013. Courtesy of Kermis. Poured a hazy amber with a thin white broken head. The flavour is weak bitter sweet with an acidic apple palate. Not much else really and a little disappointed.
