MarcoDL (2594) - NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Amber copper color, no head. Strong aroma of bourbon, vanilla, oak and raisin, I can sniff at this for hours. Rich taste of gritty raisin, boozy vanilla, bourbon, malt and oak. Little grape as well. Beer gets better as it warms up. Thin body. Great ba.

Pours a brown hazy body with a very thin head. Sweet aroma with tones of syrup. Very nice and rich taste with well balanced malty tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy deep amber beer, thin cream coloured head. Palate is smooth but fairly dry. Modest fine carbonation. Sweetish dry malts. Mild spice. Mellow bubblegum esters. Very mild bourbon and oak, sweetish and dry and thin. Spicy dry finish. Gets a little chewy and the bourbon presence is frustratingly mild. But it’s not bad by any means.

Riktigt god. Ökar i karaktär med lagring. Och smakerna växer i munnen. Provade batch 17. En av de bästa trappisterna jag druckit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (2019) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Refrigerated 12.7 oz. brown bottle corked and capped poured into a Trappist glass. Pour hazy dark brown with no head, no carbonation, and no lacing. Aroma is light bourbon and medium body. Taste is bourbon, raisin, some oak, some vanilla, some cognac, and hints of alcohol. I prefer this to batch #7, but prefer batch #3 much more than this.

solidfunk (4878) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Awesome balance. Some oak but well-balanced. Finishes a little bitter from the barrel with some sweetness. Hints of raisin, candied apple, floral yeast. Pours reddish brown and cloudy without much head or lacing. Bottle at Bottle bar.

jerohen (2054) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
Part of tasting session with Oak Aged #1, #10, #12, # 13, #14, and #17.Small off/white head, chunks of yeast floating around. Aroma of vanilla, wood, regular Quadrupel is also still there. Lots of wood and alcohol in flavor, vanilla, alcohol, burning sensation on the tongue. The flavor is completely dominated by bourbon, more or less ruining the beer. The worst of all batches i´ve had so far.

DuffMan (7499) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle, shared by Ferris. Murky amber brown. Apple brandy aroma. Estery caramel, dates, cooked apple, and (oddly) spiced rum. Warm alcoholic finish, bordering hot.
