3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma was like bananas. A nice copper color with very little head or lacing. The aroma was of tart fruit. I can’t say I detected the pomegranate. Belgian yeast was present as was the alcohol. The wine barrel influence was more prevalent than the whiskey barrel. I aged this one so the flavors seemed to blend more. Good quad.

Bottle share. Pours a clear copper color with a small bubbly off-white head. Aromas of banana, clove, caramel, apple, wood, cherry. Flavor followed the nose perfectly and I didn’t get any pomegranate. Medium body, thinner texture, lively carbonation, and a finish on the sweet side.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served displaying a hazed, orangey amber color, with a finger’s width of off white head foam that expeditiously diminished to a persistent ring, and a light layer of film. The nose was subtle across the board at first, so a period of warming reaped rewards. Noticed a bit of initial oaky/woodiness, with a hint of smoke? or I merely picked up on Wag’s last cigarette break. Alcohol lurked, with esters as cherry, grape, dried fruit, and pomegranate that showed some expression, along with a blend of citrus & malt sweetness, orange peel, spicy phenols, subtle, barrel induced vanilla, and a light vinous nature. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma’s, with some tart astringency, modest earthy bitterness, and booziness that built up a pleasantly lingering warmth. Definite Belgian yeast influences, with the barrel aging positioning this closer to a Barleywine than a Quad for me.
