On-tap a few weeks back at O’Brien’s as Koenigshoven Quad. Pours clear brown/red with a white head and good lace. Smells malty sweet, with brown sugar and some booze scent as well. Tastes malty sweet with dark fruits like rasins and plums. Some chocolate and alcohol flavors as well. Medium body and a little acidic from the alcohol, good carbonation.

Warm esters and sweet alcohol as well as some malty hints dominates the aroma. The flavour is quite complex dominated by figs, orange, plums soft malt and a long balanced finish with some hops.
OK but could use a year or two to settle...

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle labeled Konings hoeven. This is an interestingly spicy quadrupel. Fizzy, peppery, malty, chewy, warm. Though I am drinking this mid-spring, I appreciate the full-bodied complexity of this wonderful brew.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled(330ml). -Ruby red coloured, small head that fade away for about 2 seconds (the beer was served too cold), pleasant alcoholic fruity nose. The taste is sweet fruity (berries and dried fruit), alcoholic spicy and light yeasty. Very complex brew. This is a beer to drink and enjoy in chilly spring evening.

The suspended carbonation of this exquisite ale in a quadruppel brew leaves me speechless, but not wordless. One of my favoraite Belgian brews to date, it’s flavor is sublime, the aftertaste beckons for anolther gullp. What a treat!
