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.

Dégustée en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina et Marco devant la présentation extérieure du Cercle Rouge. Magnifique robe translucide de couleur prune à la mousse caramel, dense, généreuse et collante au verre jusqu’à la fin des temps! Le service n’est même pas entamé que de puissantes arômes de figue, pruneaux, raisins et dattes emplissent l’air ambiant! C’est sucré, rond, chaud, alcoolisé... Quiconque est un amateur du style s’y retrouve immédiatement! Le concert se poursuit en bouche et contrairement aux autres quadrupel trappistes, sans cette Signature Belge dans la levure qui fait de La Trappe une quadrupel si différente de ses consoeurs. De la pelure de raisins, encore des pruneaux et de ces magnifiques fruits à la chair moelleuse et même fibreuse. C’est ample, très sucré et long en bouche. L’alcool n’est pas dissimulé et sa présence se conjugue parfaitement à tout le reste. Une Grande Trappiste!

Contrairement à une Bush, je trouve largement plus d’intérêt dans cette bière. Magnifique robe ambrée aux reflets rouges. Le nez rend pas mal d’alcool (moins évidemment si on la laisse s’aerer ce qui est indispensable) mais amène rapidement de franches notes caramelisées et de pomme ! La bouche ne nous fait pas mentir : on retrouve un corps rond, de belles notes de pommes sans finalement que l’alcool ne l’emporte trop et finisse par écoeurer.

Stor sødme og helt over i noget frugt af den mørkerøde slags. Karamel og fin humle i eftersmagen.

TorbenJensen (792) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2015
It is an extremely beautiful maroon colored beer which have small individual foam residues. It smells faintly of plum and raisin, and really I can not really nuanced several odors. The taste is slightly sour before it is taken over by a fruit taste the aforementioned plum and raisin and a lot of other ripe berry fruits almost beaten to please my taste buds. Palate is huge and you sense only slightly high warming alcohol. Hop bitterness is present, but very sporadic. This ale is vinous, fruity, warm and absolutely wonderful.

KoRoBeNiKi (131) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Appearance: Brown-Reddish color with a light fading off-white head with some lacing. Aroma is sweat with dried fruit, yeast, caramel, and vanilla. Sweet flavor, mostly dried fruit as well as spices and some light bitterness. Ending is slightly alcoholic and a bit bitter. The bitterness helps but it feels just a little hot. I think it’s a bit better when it warms up, oddly.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 Niet donkerbruin zoals veel andere quadrupels, maar amberkleurig met een mooie beige schuimkraag. Smaakt zoet en een beetje naar drop. Erg lekker bier.
