TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 4, 2006
On tap at Ortinos Pizza. Pours a hazy golden orange with a smaller off white lacing head with great retention. Aroma was fruity along with some Belgian spices and yeast. Flavor was spicy, fruity and yeasty. Actually reminded me of Golden Monkey, which is a spicy Tripel, so this is different than other Quad’s I’ve had. Picked up some slight metallic at the end of the taste. But still a very solid beer.

Lubiere (11232) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2006
Light amber hazy ale with a nice creamy white head. Aroma of curacao, aniseed, and apples, with alcohol vapours. In mouth, rich tingly malt, dryish, with some pleasant tartness, a bit in your face, but overall, interesting. Bottle at l’Autre Oeil, March 3, 2006.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Almost overpowering aroma and flavor of overripe fruit, figs, and slightly metallic. Was not cold enough which added to the strong flavors. Good but not great.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2006
Bottled. Sparkling, orange beer with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly sweet caramel, with notes of yeast and fruits. Flavor is candi-sweet, malty, fruity, spicey and with some warming alcohol. Fizzy, medium body and a sweet and bitter finish. (060220)

gnoff (8793) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2006
Bottle, at The Rover (Gothenburg, Sweden) on February 9, 2006. Golden color with a big white head. Very fruity scent and a heavy fruity taste.

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2006
Bottle. Golden yellow, small white head. Sweet yeasty aroma, honey notes, and toasty malt. Sweet malt quickly gives way to a dry toasty alcohol. Pleasantly enjoyable but lacks complexity. Medium palate. Nice.

aracauna (3283) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Cloudy amber. Good head. Mandarin orange juice and spruce. Celery. Flavor is a bit sharp. Is this hoppy? This is a spicy beer, but the sharpness doesn’t quite hit the spot.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2006
Poured with a huge head, well carbonated. Alcohol bite on the first sip, but it is quite fruity and spicy as well. I really think the alcohol dominates too much, but still decent!

Nuffield (3858) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2006
This was described on the menu as a tripel, though I followed the name in thinking ABT. Clear yellow-ish with dense white carbonation. Alcohol is apparent but it is leaping with spices (clove, black pepper) and fruit (light citrus) and a touch of metal. Not very adventurous palate. (on tap at Brick Store, Decatur)

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
One of my favorite quads. Poured a dark gold color, big rocky off-white head. Lotsa spicy fruit in the nose...a yeastiness lurks behind that maltiness. The flavor is more malts with candy sugar, yeastys, melons, etc. The alcohol pops up loudly also..whew. Finishes with a nice hop bite if not a tad harsh. I will get this one again.
