Amberkleur, goede,blijvende kraag. Ruikt naar zoet fruit en smaakt ook vrij zoet, weinig diepgang? Medium body. Niet te koud drinken.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
333 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear copper with a 4 finger creamy/bubbly white head. Aromas of yeast/spice, pepper and light pitted fruit. Full bodied. Flavor is pretty much the aroma with a touch of roast malt. Itís fairly fruity in a light way, itís got a touch of pepper, thereís a hint of banana ester, and itís entirely delicious. Like it!

Bottle shared at a tasting at DSGís place. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Amber to hazy amber, bubbly white head. Fruity, faint honey aroma, tastes faintly alcoholic and too sweet. Medium body, very sweet finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at home. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Hazy deep golden. Yeasty aroma of fruity esters and a bit of alcohol. Sweet flavor with malt, honey, fruits and a slightly drier spicy finish with a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Too sweet and heavy for my liking (especially on a hot Tel Aviv summer day). Feels more like a strong sweet Tripel than a Quadrupel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 mL bottle. Pours caramel with a medium, pillowy, off-white head. The aroma is plums, nutmeg, vanilla, bananas, and some mandarin oranges. The flavor is very sweet, with a mild bitterness and a touch of sourness. The palate is heavy, very sticky, and a little acidic. Overall, this is a flavorful, spicy, and sugary beer. Not your typical Quad, but very tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle - Pours deep gold with a one finger off-white head. Itís very bubbly. The aroma is of yeast, berries, and malts. The flavor is sweet, bready, and fruity. Itís medium to full bodied and lively on the palate. The sweetness carries right through to the finish with some lingering alcohol warmth and dryness. Excellent.

Light golden in color, hazy with a thin white head. Decent Belgian yeast aroma and flavor. Has a big Belgian quad flavor and finish. Lots of alcohol this can hit hard.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep, glowing amber with a thick meringue like white head that lasts with plenty of webby lace. Looks very nice in my little used Rochefort chalice. Nose shows some banana, sweet malts, light booze and esters, but thankfully not too sweet. flavor is similar, some banana, clove, yeasty esters, but pretty nicely balanced and lightly dry even. Quad isnít a style
I love or drink a lot of these days as I usually prefer something of
A much lower gravity, but this stuff is pretty on point and actually worth the 5 bucks and change I paid. I think I liked this more than regular Gulden Draak.
