4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 A blonde Quad! Interesting for starters. Beautiful deep amber pour into the glass with a big off-white head. Wonderful aromas of yeast and malt with notes of fruit in there as well. Sips beautifully. Gets even better as it warms up. Great beer. I still prefer the regular Golden Draak but this is definitely worth a try. Exceptional.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier - clear bronze beer under a solid foamy head; aroma of esters, pear and alcohol; very sweet and sticky; full-bodied, lot of residual sweetness and more fruity tones in the finish along with notes of candi sugar and marzipan - would surely have pleased me 20 years ago but today I can only say: not terrible

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Biggish offwhite head. Coppery body with carbonation. Sugary
tropical fruit aroma with herbal candy notes. Dry-sweet perfumy
tropical fruit taste with sugary notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish,
harsh mouthfeel. Dryish tropical fruit and sugar taste with
lemony notes. Interesting and unusual, but too harsh for
me. (0.33l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured fiery medium golden with a dense, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up a whole lot of strong, toasted sugars, with pale and lighter fruits leading.. spicy clove and fruity yeast accents.. raw alcohol around.. too assertive for my liking. The flavor found sweet honey, bready, and fruity notes at the core, with black pepper, cloves, and floral bitterness around.. finished with a whole helluva lot of residual sugars and tart fruits skins on the finish (peppery and fruity yeast too).. brash, but I enjoyed it. Heavier-bodied and very sugary on the palate.. hot and a bit rough.. I wasn’t a big fan.
