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.

Pours a cloudy medium dark orange with a relatively thin, off-white lingering head. Plum nose, though light aroma. Very heavy plum flavor, and very sweet overall. Extremely effervescent mouthfeel, like it’s trying ot jump out of my mouth. Closes with a hint of burnt toast and a nice bitterness.

Carlisle (318) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle (759 ml). Pours amber with off-white head and lacing. White raisin aroma. Plum and white raisin upfront. Alcohol and candied sugar follows. Some bitterness, more raisin, and warming alcohol in the long finish. Lighter body than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unde (669) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Reddish orange beer with nice head on top and lacing too. Aroma has fruity notes, Belgian yeast, sweet malts also. Taste is quite fruity for a quad, some malty sweetness, a bit of wine like flavours. Full body and high carbonation.

Pours a lovely Amber colour with a off white frothy head, unfortunately the head doesn’t last very long. Strong ale with a nice malty flavour. A really enjoyable glass of beer. Highly recommended.

Butelka. Barwa brunatna, lekko mętna. Piana biała, wysoka, opadająca do niewielkiej warstwy. W aromacie owoce, drożdże, przypieczony chleb, tost. W smaku bardzo złożone. Wszystkie smaki wspaniale ze sobą współgrają. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej niezalegająca. Wysycenie wysokie, być może troszkę za wysokie, które powoduje, że piwo nie jest maksymalnie pijalnie. Alkohol świetnie ukryty, lekko rozgrzewający. Piwo charakteryzuje się bogatym smakiem, intensywnymi aromatami chlebowo-owocowymi. Jest gęste, pełne, treściwe. Klasa!

commonmac (818) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2015
On tap at Bulldog NE. Beautiful copper and amber color with strong lacing in the form of an off white head. Dark fruit and sugary quality on the nose. Slight medicinal note. Taste is big and powerful with healthy prune characteristics. Alcohol warmth. Sugars and malt play well throughout consumption. Smooth and wonderful. You can tell this Belgian brewery knows what they’re doing.

750ml bottle shared by "homeless chic" Dave. Pours orange brown with a big light beige head. Aroma is clove, banana and caramel. Flavor follows, clove, banana, honey, caramel. A nicely balanced quad that finishes dry and hides the abv well.

8-12-2015 Delft de Waag Kan niet tippen aan vergelijkbare bieren zoals St. Bernardus maar het blijft gewoon een lekker bier. Lekker prikkelend in de mond. Smaakt zoet en naar caramel en heeft een lekkere licht bittere nasmaak.
