3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours burnt orange with a limited head that fades to a ring and no lacing. Nose is a bit muted, some orange and some toffee. Notes of plums, cheerios, toffee almost even a hint of maple, some english breakfast tea. Tastes are medi/heavy sweet and low bitterness. Very thin body with medium carbonation. Nice enough, but was expecting something bigger in a quad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden with a small head. Aroma has some spices, is quite heavy with fruity malts and underlying sweetness. Not too strong in any way, everything is kept subtle. You barely can feel the strong alcohol that this beer packs in its taste. It has full solid malt body, that is balanced with spices and probably some hops also - although they are almost not detectable at all. Still trying to understand Belgian beers better - and I guess this beer was a good lesson.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 330ml bottle on 16/3/2014. Pours a cloudy deep golden with a big head that disappears quickly. The aroma is strong with Belgian yeast, lots of citrus and stone fruit, honey and spices. It’s a very sweet one up front, fruit, honey and marmalade prominent. This is nicely balanced yeast, spice and a quite tart, bitter finish. The palate is quite syrupy. A carbonation is a little excessive, which is my only complaint. All up this really good and one of the best Belgian quads I’ve had to date.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours amber with gold highlights; the head is off-white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: alcohol, rum, raisins, prunes, toffee, and anise. The taste is medium sweet that finishes lightly bitter; the aroma notes carry through into the taste. The palate is medium bodied, slick, slightly sticky, has light carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, not that vastly different from the regular Gulden Draak - a slight improvement.
