Deep dark brown color. Nice long lasting head. Sweet fruity aroma. Taste is sweet (and i mean SWEET) with strong hints of bitterness. Too sweet for my taste!

Deep amber color, delightful malt taste, with a hint of pineapple in the aroma. A bit more ímetallicí than most Belgian ales. Still a solid good taste.

Fruity and very flavorful with nice malts. An excellent Belgian Strong Ale. One of my favorites.

I may have had an old bottle because it had the Koningshoeven logo on the front and not the La Trappe logo. Either way the cork popped very weakly and there was not nearly as much head as I had experienced in the triple. The color was deep brown and had a faint aroma of banana and flowers. THE TASTE WAS STRONG of fermented bananas with a thick sweet mouthfeel. Overall indeed good but I think I liked the triple better.

The best beer I have ever had. Strong and fruity/floral flavors explode to fill your mouth on first taste following through to the finish which is clean an winsome. Very happy beer drinking experience.

A very complex brew! Very fruity with a tone of banana and pineapple in the aroma. Slightly parfume flavoured which goes well with the strong alcohol flavour. Fine balance between the beautyful dark nut/orange colour and the expectations for the palate.

Iím really digging these trappist brews of late, especially since I have a local distributer finally. This Quad is just as excellent as any imports Iíve had lately. Nice grainy aroma, beautiful amber color and just enough lace. The taste is very clean, and nicely malted. I can tell it is rather alchoholic, but it is so well balanced it is not a bit distracting. One thing Iíve really grown fond of with these trappist beers is the simplicity and lack of intense flavor. Iíve always been such a huge fan of thick stouts and Imperials, itís nice to find brews that are excellent without overloading your senses. Like fine dining.

Rich amber/ruby glow. Strongly alcoholic, but not overpowering. Well balanced with a slight residual sweetness and a hint of citrus.
