COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
De geur is zacht met opvallende houtnotes. Bloemig en zoetig als bloesemhoning. Amandel en vanillegeur aanwezig en natuurlijk de normale Quadrupelgeur welke echter op de achtergrond blijft. De eerst dronk smaakt duidelijk naar zacht rode wijn gevolgd door hout, tannines en rook welke langzaam overgaan in een zachte honigzoetigheid. Naarmate het bier warmer wordt gedronken komt de eikensmaak meer naar voren en lijkt het bier tanninerijker te worden. Daardoor is deze batch voldoende bitter en blijft de houtsmaak op de achtergrond aanwezig. Deze Quadrupel is medium zoet en droger dan de gewone Quadrupel. ’Late burgundy vaten’ 91% Nieuw eiken (high toast) 4,5% Nieuw accasia (medium toast) 4,5%

Abijen (1430) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, - JUL 2, 2013
Pours a beautiful brown reddish unclear beer with a good white head. Smells a bit vanilla, alcohol, sweet. It tastes vanilla, very sweet but not in a bad way, somewhat like bourbon. Carbo is good. Average. Medium body. I would like it more thicker. A bit sticky texture. Nice one.

fonefan (34741) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2014

Bottle 375ml. corked.

[ As La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged Batch #13 ].
[ Trade by Benzai ]. Clear medium to dark amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, oak - wood, fruity, alcohol. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet with a long duration, dried fruit, oak, malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. IMO: Quit simple and not as smooth and easy going as f.ex the #12 .. [20140405]

Douberd (2217) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle 375ml at home, c&c, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 10% Deep amber red colour on a slighty hazy body, with tiny pieces of yeast floating around in it. Small off-white head, a bit thin, with okay retention, minimal lacing on the glass. Divine aroma, vanilla, honey, wood, alcohol, lots of dark fruits, grape and wine notes. Taste of red wine, honey, caramel, wood, a bit of smoke or peat -just a tiny hint-, very well hidden alcohol, quite sweet in general but not cloying, very good. Medium thin body, good carbonation, slight oily palate, smooth beer. Overall very good.

ghendrix (100) - Cardiff, WALES - MAY 23, 2014
Pours deep amber, a bit hazy, frothy tan head that quickly dissipates. No real lacing. Aromas are caramel, vanilla, wood, sweet dark fruits (caramelised apples, raisins, etc.) and alcohol. The Belgian yeast is less apparent than I’d expect. Flavour is medium-strong sweet, mild bitterness, medium booze. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, light fizz. Really like this!

PotjeBier (1643) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Nice clear brown color. Off white head, short retention. Aroma’s: sweet malts, fruit, candies, fresh wood, vinous. Retronasal there’s a bit more sweetness, candies, alcohol, with clear wood notes. Flavor is moderate sweet, woody, hints of fruity sourness. Fairly strong alcohol feel. Medium bodied. Long finish, no new flavors, but wood stays throughout. The barrel aging really adds a lot to the base-beer (of which I’m not a huge fan).

Bottled. Pours clear, amber with a medium sized, off-white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, citrus, vanilla, wood and yeaty notes. Sweet flavor that end up more dry with alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied, oilt texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Quad.

Fspirit (44) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Almost no head at all. Looks very alive though. Wonderfull aroma of wine and sugary fruit, really gets you interested of the taste. Taste is actually not the same as what you get from the aroma. I get allot of plum and sugary dried fruits, blended with hints of salt and malt. Recomended.
