4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Copper beer with good carbonation and head retention as well as lacing. Fruity and spicy aroma and flavor, well balanced bitterness and sweetness. It has a dry finish, spicy, peppery and notes of wine yeast. Very strong flavors. Excellent beer, even though not my style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a nice dark amber color with very little foam. Not as smooth or sweet as the Basic Gulden Draak. Slightly harsher with a little less flavor. It still is fairly smooth for having 10.5% ABV. I still prefer the smooth liquid caramel flavors of the original white label.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark clear amber body with a large foamy off-white head with a limited life span. Aroma is caramel, Norwegian brown cheese, grains, candi sugar and hints of figs, metal and raisins. Taste is caramel, raisins, alcohol, candi sugar, rum, Norwegian brown cheese and hints of grains, metal and honey. Full body, high carbonation. Not bad, but rather one-dimensional and without the complexity I expect from a full-blown quadrupel; this one could easily have been labelled a Belgian Strong Ale. The metallic hints draw down the score somewhat. A decent beer, but no more.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy orange colour with a thin but lasting head. Aroma has quite a bit going on with apple, toffee, plum, figs and yeast. Taste is somewhat sweet but as you get through the glass the bitterness come through although not too strong. Nicely balanced and quite complex, the alcohol strength isn’t too noticable. Somewhat thin but overall very nice indeed.

Bottle 0.33 l, Piwnica, Wrocław, Poland.
Ciemnobursztynowe, wpadające w miedź, mętnawe piwo o obfitej i puszystej pianie oraz przyjemnym, słodowym, owocowym i winnym aromacie. W smaku gęste, rozgrzewające, początkowo słodkawe i owocowe, następnie winne z lekko wytrawnym i łagodnie goryczkowym finiszem. Mocno rozgrzewające gardło i przyjemnie drapiące w przełyk.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is Belgian candy sugar, plum, toffee, apple, slight pineapple. Nice wild yeast tones. Taste is nice sweet and mellow crystal malts consumed quickly by a fabulous array of dark fruits and wild yeast. A very subtle but pleasant hopiness is there to deliver a perfect among of bitterness without spoiling the beautiful experience. Appearance is a hazy orange with a thin lace head that retains fairly well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber pour with big fluffy white head. Belgian yeast, raisin, candied sugar, booze, a spiced banana type aroma, a bit of ginger, almost a butterscotch type sweetness, but not cloying. The taste is authentic.
