Oaky-wood with sweet cinamon-sugar and banana aromas. Amber-orange with off-white head that fades quickly. Fresh wood oak flavors with banana and spice tones. A great twist on this beer, it adds a nice dimension.

ekstedt (5391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2010

caesar (5043) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2010
Bottled @ Dutch "the Good, the Bad & the Ugly" tasting. Hazy orange color, short head. Aroma of tropical fruits, hint of caramel. Quite sweet, bit alcoholic. I think I prefer the regular Quad, but the La Trappe Quad has always been a beer that had to suit the moment. If I can lay my hands on another one, I will definitely try it again.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2010
Unofficial Dutch RB Meeting. Orange colored brew. Sweet aroma, some fruits. Very sweet and boozy flavor. Unbalanced and too sweet.
