3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: (Konings Hoeven Quadruple)
Pours a nice medium amber topped with a slow fading off white head.
Aroma was intensly vinous as soon as the cap was lifted, and a little bit of felt marker as well.
Flavour is nice a fruity smooth start, raisin, faint sour cherry, with the alcohol asserting itself in the finish.

very smooth with a very subtle alcohol flavor, which is good for a ’big beer’. This quad drank as smooth as silk and finish nicely, I’ll buy this one again

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a bright copper with a quickly disappearing off white head. Very complex profile. Banana is most noticable but raison, toffee, date, caramel, and some peach. There is a significant hop presence for a belgian style beer, though i wouldn’t call it bitter by any other standards. Sweet, medium bodied palate and finish.

brown with medium head. Very warm from the alcohol and filling. Lively carbonation. Great long finish. Perhaps the best of the "la trappes".

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark copper and had a great looking off white head...that went away a little fast, but still some nice lacing. Aroma is yeast, raisins, bananas, malt, and alcohol. Taste is pleasant...spice and belgian yeast...alcohol, caramel, nuts, and vegetable oil. Mouthfeel is kind of sticky and actually decently hot from the alcohol...which I usually don’t get from quads much less belgians. I dig this beer...and I think it saves the la trappe label from being too marginal.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is an ’04 that I’ve had in the cellar for two years. Nice half inch, light brown head, excellent lacing. Color is dark brown. Aroma of moderate malt, toasted, moderate yeast, dough, banana, vanilla, and cherry. Initial flavor was moderately sweet with a long finish. Really malty taste, but not as much cherry and vanilla that was indicated by the aroma. There was a moderate a level of alcohol in the finish. I think this could;ve stayed in the cellar for a coupld more year.

12 oz bottle. Murky brown pour with medium sized floaties. Very small head turned to nothing before I finished smelling. Aromas of banana, honey, molassas, and roasted malts. Very sweet flavors. More banana, and molassas. Alcohol warming on the finish. Good Beer
