COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

yeast and alcohol nose - with nice apple tones. Orange red body, soft carbonation. Apple and oranges are the fruits which leads the flavors. Not very strong.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2002
Sweet, but not as sugary as I expected. Medium malts, nice dry but lingering finish. some toffee flavors, hoppier than I thought it would be.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2002
Bottle conditioned. Copper orange, moderate head and condition. This smells like bad hombrew, reedeems itself with a Malty sweet/ coconut flavour and a chewy sweet and alcoholic finish. Dangerously unbalanced.

Nice "winey" Belgian. I can barely tell the diff from their XXX and that "ain’t bad" either.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Updated: Red-amber color with small foamy head - short retention. Rich aroma with bubblegum and banana. Smooth sweet cinnamon and chocolate flavor. Candyish. Lingering light phenolic finish. Alcohol is well masked, body is light and slick on the tongue. Very nice - beer flavored candy, mmmm.

Eh, not wow spectacular, but still wow, not bad... it has the nice, velvety palate I love, with the fruity, honey-like maltiness you would probably expect. Did look quite good though...

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 8, 2002
This is even tastier than the tripel! However it has a slightly sweeter taste, but not overpowering. A crisp and smooth flavor, very enjoyable.

2000/2001 version. Deep amber color. Stark white head. Warm fruity nose with honeylike overtones. Comparable flavor, sweet and syrupy. Nice lingering flavor. Alcohol was noticably present.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 re-rate 2002 version: yeasty aroma. Dark orange/amber color, off-white head, very good lace. Sweet, apple, alcohol very much present, syrupy. Average long lasting finish and sweet. Has become more sweet with less complex flavors. Another example of beers turning towards the masses. 1998 version: 4.1
