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.

milo91hd (103) - Lecce, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Ottima birra con un bel colore ambrato scuro e un cappello di schiuma non molto persistente, odore e sapore richiamano molto frutta secca insieme a delle note alcoliche importanti

edsspoon (377) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle - hazy amber with a bubbly beige head. Okay lacing. Aroma of banana and clove with some peach and pear. A little alcohol works its way through. Taste of banana, pear, bubblegum and sweet malts. Nicely warming. Medium body, medium carbonation. Amazing.

migajos (158) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Appearance: strong tea color, with tall light-beige head. Aroma: brown sugar, honey, peach sweetness, dried dark fruits. Taste: some light coffee notes, again dark fruits, oily fruity sweetness. Very well ballanced. Alcohol (10%) very well hidden in taste. Gives warm nice aftertaste though.

Beerkenstock (42) - - AUG 8, 2014
Drink cool (10-12°C) Eye: pours ruby/amber colour with nice white/beige but dissipating head. Nose: dry dark fruits (raisins, dates, plums, prunes) but also malty Mouth: dark fruits, raisins, toffee, roastedmalts, good yeasty components Palate: a bit alcoholic Overall: not too bitter, not too sweet. very nice in all its elements. I’ll definitely have this one again!

From bottle in la Central de Cambrils. Great color, a bit reddish. Not much head in the original glass, therefore not highest appearance rating. The aroma is sweet and fresh at the same time. Very Belgian. Same for the taste. Rich, caramelish and quite soft I drink at ten same time. Almost perfect palate!

Cybion (61) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours clear, light reddish amber with half a finger of off-white head, which dissipates quickly. Bit of stringy lacing is present. Plenty of sweet fruity notes on the nose: orange, peach, citrus, banana and apple are detectable. These rest on a base of rather sweet cereal malts, strangely reminiscent of cheerios. Slight spicy character overall, rounded off with and hints of smoke, almond, alcohol and cheesy yeast. Pretty spectacularly sweet taste, again reminiscent of cheerios initially with the malts coming through thick and fast. The same lighter, sweeter fruity notes as in the aroma make an appearance on the tongue, only joined by cherry and strawberry now. Aftertaste is cereal, caramel and a bit of yeast. Only real complaint I’ve got about the taste is alcohol is just a little too noticeable, though just the right level of warmth is provided by it. No problems with the palate; body is full, texture is smooth, carbonation is minimal, goes down a treat. Might be the fruitiest beer that isn’t actually made with fruit that I’ve ever had, and yet somehow it never gets TOO sweet at any point. Aside from a little too much alcohol taste, this is a real winner.

Hazy orange with a thick and creamy beige head. Aroma has fruity esters, mostly banana, and sweet malt. Taste has banana, figs, chocolate, raisins, sweetness, spicy yeast and hops. Full body, soft carbonation, round. Banana dominates the after taste, some peppery yeast as well.

Donpakkobeer (4) - MEXICO - JUL 23, 2014 does not count
Nariz: El conjunto es complejo con aromas como banana, vainilla, clavo, toffe, avellanas, una ligera nota que recuerda el anís y un fondo de levadura Boca: Una cerveza sedosa de amargor muy fino, dulce y licorosa, en boca se remarca un poco la levadura, sensación cremosa de final prolongado Vista: Semiturbia, cobriza con tonos dorados y oro viejo una espuma abundante y blanquecina
