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.

The body has a dark crimson amber color with bright ruby highlights and good clarity. It forms a small light tan head on top that fades out fast leaving little to no lacing. Its nose has some fruity, raisin like estery notes with some honey like sweetness and dark sugary notes. The flavor starts out somewhat thin on a medium body with a sweet candy and honey like malty base. It has some simple mild fruity notes with raisin as the stand out. The presence of alcohol is very mild and adds some brandy like complexity to the finish. Hop flavor and bitterness is not noticeable. The texture is slick and thinner than I would expect for a Quad. The carbonation is light and somewhat fizzy.

Fruitig aroma. Quadrupel die fruitig smaakt doet aan bessen denken. Dun qua smaak in de mond, prettig geheel in de afdronk. Zoet met een licht bittertje. Weinig sprankelend. Net als de andere La Trappe makkelijk te drinken. Mooi in balans. Lang warme nasmaak.

Versata nel bicchiere la birra presenta una discreta schiuma, che svanisce perň rapidamente. Gli aromi di caramello, prugna, dattero, vaniglia, e frutta secca sono importanti. Giŕ dal naso si avverte la dolcezza e l’alcolicitŕ, forse eccessiva, di questa birra facendola risultare scarsamente bilanciata.

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2014
Mahagóni színű főzet rendkívül gazdag aromával, melyben rágógumis, érett gyümölcsös jegyek keverednek tejkaramellás, likőrös zamatokkal. Különlegesen telt ízekben bővelkedő, igazi csemege. Embertelenül jól sikerült alkotás.

Eccellente birra da corpo strutturato e dai chiari sentori di banana, caramello e biscottato. Un ottima trappista!

Bottle at the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a long lasting frothy white head. The aroma is rich sweet treacle toffee and banana. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter, with a smooth mellow malt resin, fruit, alcohol bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. One of the very best Trappist beers IMO.

Excalibur123 (113) - Soria, SPAIN - JUN 19, 2014
Vierte color ámbar claro con media cabeza de espuma beige que permanece en la copa ; aromas a caramelo, mango, albaricoque y licor. En boca entrada potente y maltosa; abundan las notas a especias y frutos secos con cuerpo y carbónico medios y el alcohol bien integrado; pos gusto dulce y maltoso con escaso amargor, buena cuádruple trapense con excelente relación calidad precio.

Clear dark copper. Aroma is sweet bananas. Taste adds cloves. Nice beer. I would love this in the winter.

Piękna piana. Aromat bananów i goździków. W ogóle zarówno z piany jak i aromatu nieco podobne do piw pszenicznych. Intensywny, dość słodki smak, dużo alkoholu, mało wyczuwalny chmiel, wysycenie średnie. Naprawdę zacne piwo do degustacji.
