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.

Meget spændende øl, der absolut er en god oplevelse. Lækker smag. Lidt for høj alkoholprocent.

This quad tastes lighter than the tripel and dubbel, probably due to a heavy dose of sugar. This makes it very drinkable for a quad. Dark amber, and much lighter in color than all quads I remember. The complexity is less than the best examples, such as Westvleteren, Rochefort or StBernardus. This yeast is the most "banany" of all belgian yeasts. Aromas of banana, caramel, toast, spicy phenols. Flavors of banana, caramel, chocolate, toast, spicy phenols. Dry effervescent finish.

Goodness .... brew day for me and this is what comes out. A fantastic example if the style. Aroma of a sour or saison .... Tart. The pour is dark amber with a relatively president light tan head. The flavor is full and complex caramel ..... This is a fabulous example of what I like from a Quad .... worth a try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Typique du style, tout en étant assez mince en bouche. Ce produit est très effervescent, boisé et l’alcool est peu subtil. C’est moins fruité que je ne l’aurais cru; la banane et les prunes sont bien perceptibles. Bien bonne en fait!

Une bière orangée translucide à la mousse éphémère.Des arômes d"oranges trempées dans de l’alcool, ou plutôt de l’alcool aromatisé à l’orange. Quelques épices sur de la levure et des odeurs de bonbons durs. C’est une copie conforme des senteurs, en saveurs, où se rajoute une forte effervescence et une amertume vieillotte. Ça ressemble à un vieux fromage qu’il faut apprivoiser avant d’apprécier. Comme mon fils, (à 7 mois au moment de cette dégustation) lorsqu’on lui fait goûter une nouvelle sorte de purée.
