Superb! I was taken aback by such a lightly hued quad. The nose is pomegranate and dried cherry. No heat, good fruit and balancing bitterness. Sooooo good.

'12 vintage bottle. The pour is a rich colorful orange and reddish. The aroma is a great mix of dark fruits. The taste is a wonderful blend. Not too strong but a perfect mix. Probably the best Quad I have had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 in 2012 from notes. Pours the slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, very fruity, pears, apples, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, wood, a hint of spice, some alcohol to this.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Tasted on 1/3/12 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle. Pours clear, light orange with an average off-white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is sweet golden raisin, vanilla, fruity, and spicy Belgian yeast. The flavor is sweet pomegranate golden raisin, vanilla, and spicy Belgian yeast. The body is medium with an oily texture, average carbonation, and a long sweet and spicy finish.

And the gods of beer smiled upon us. This is a bottle from 2010 or so that has been lurking in the back of my cabinet for years. Very cloudy two toned dark/lighter orange pour, light head. Wow what a nose! Mandarin orange, apricot, orange blossoms, fruit cocktail, sweet and thick. Tons of yeast sediment. Palate is apricot, stone fruit, concentrated pineapple/orange/guava (POG!), kind of grapey with some modest Belgian spice. I taste no pomegranate. Very complex, very dynamic, rich, sweet, chewy, with a looooong, satisfying finish. Alcohol is present but nicely balanced. This was a one-off, very likely never to be repeated experience that was simply remarkable. I will think about this beer for a long time.

Pours a cloudy brown amber colour with a little white lacing and no head. Aroma of alcohol, raisins and banana, a nice smelling beer. Kinda tastes like it smells, kinda weak up front but the middle and end aren’t bad. A good beer not a great beer.

On Tap at Bitter Creek Ale House, Boise Deschutes Tap "not" TakeOver Hazy deep orange, with a thin white ring. Rich malty fruit aroma, Sweet and spicy with a lot of that Belgian maltiness. Some ABV burn and a slight carbonation sizzle. Delicious

Bottle share at RBAG. Golden yeasty pour with light white head. Aroma is malty, spices, rasins. Taste is light malty sweetness, spices, mild finish, with very little hint from th booze. Solid but reminds me more of a Belgian ale than a quad.

Had a few years back when it came out, once in bottle, once on tap. Was pretty good, don’t really remember being too WOW’d or anything though.
