3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of candy sugar, alcohol, raisins, bubblegum and brown sugar.
Flavours are kind of basic, with some spice and banana and chocolate. Very sweet, but still with some acidic notes.
A clean mouthfeel - quite crisp.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: caramel, coffee;
Appearance: brown, clear, minimal head;
Taste: very sweet, quite bitter, herbs (tea);
Palate: medium body, lively carbonation, bitter, long finish;
Taste and body are too thin. Balance would be better if this beer had less alcohol (say 8%) and less sweetness, or more taste and body.

Pours maroon with small retreating head. Aroma is introverted with some under-ripe banana, perfume and raisin. Very sweet flavor, with sugary dried fruit, banana and balanced with a burnt-toast malt flavors. Decent, but a little withdrawn and overly sweet.

Heerlijk donker bier zonder rijke schuimkraag. Een 'verrassing' van Hertog Jan. Ze noemen dit bier niet voor niets 'gerstewijn'. Alcoholpercentage 10%. Een rijpe volle smaak waar zoet en bitter gecombineerd worden. Heerlijk!

Bottle, 12C. Dark brown with a pale beige head. Aroma of raisins, dried bananas, medium sherry, a little chocolate, vague herbs. Sweet with dried fruit, chocolate, licorice. Woody spices creep up towards the end. Not that boozy. Avoids cloying. Not particularly distinguished, but pleasant enough.

In bottle; poured nice dark brown ... very little head. Tasted somewhat sweet, almost like root beer. Overall, a very nice quad that I would absolutely buy again

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark ruby in color, low level of CO2, light amber head, kind of mousse.
Complex dark fruits, raisins, fog, grapes, plums, in aroma and flavor. Something winy. Hop aroma, flavor and bitterness is very low. It has 10% alcohol but it is not extreme. Love this beer, it has drinkability an it is complex. Will have this Quad again.

Sweet and yeasty beer, with some fruits and herbs. Used to drink this before I became obsessed with craft beer.
