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.

kaserov (227) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 19, 2016
Color ámbar turbio con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de menos de un dedo de grosor (no mucha retención, aunque no llega a desaparecer del todo). Algo de carbonatación, pero mínima (más presente en boca por su burbujeo típico). Aroma frutal (como de fruta machacada), fresco, y alcohólico. Sabor también frutal, con predominio posterior del dulzor de las maltas (no capto lúpulo) y con un regusto final alcohólico muy placentero. Amargor no tiene, como dice en la descripción. Muy buena opción para una Quadrupel (La Trappe no suele fallar).

It pours dark amber with a light tan head. It produces plenty of lacing. It has a sweet malt aroma with caramel, plums, and dried cherry. The flavors are highlighted by a burst of fruity esters with the plums the most noticeable. There are also some spices with dried cherry and caramel. There is some moderate alcohol warming. It has a moderately full body that produces a sweet finish with a bit of bitterness. Overall this produces a burst of fruity esters highlighted by the plums with a complex malt mixture that has a pleasant sweet finish with tinges of bitterness throughout the taste.

Pite z kranu. Bardzo dobry quadrupel o złożonym aromacie z nutami rodzynek, fig, nalewki, wina, ciemnych owoców i podobnym, bardzo owocowym, "suszonym" smaku. Nieco może zbyt słodki i wyklejający, ale w tym stylu jest to dopuszczalne. W wyglądzie ciemny brąz z całkiem przyzwoitą pianą. Piwo bardzo dobre, bogate, degustacyjne, może nie aż tak bogate jak największe belgijskie perełki, ale jest tu naprawdę bardzo dobrze. Myślę, że jeszcze wrócę, tym razem w wersji butelkowej. Bardzo dobre piwo

Très belle robe cuivrée avec des parfums de figues,raisins,bananes...et épices. Une douceur et chaleur bien agréables en début de dégustation puis une amertume et un réchauffement alcoolisé en fin de bouche . Délicieuse bière équilibrée et raffinée!

Dégustée dans un verre Kasteel. Très belle robe dorée, mousse fine et carbonatation moyenne. Le nez est raffiné avec des arômes de fruits secs. Le goût est exceptionnellement délicat avec des touches de figue, dattes et banane, le tout idéalement enveloppé de douceur et d’une légère amertume. La finale longue est à la hauteur : alcool et sucre discrets parfaitement naturels. Une bière d’anthologie!

Luneylane (44) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 14, 2016
A bottle from Jason’s drunk at home during the typhoon! Aroma: malty, fruity, reminds me of the smell of a pub in the morning, before the cleaner has been through. Really good, this is the elixir of life, HA! Appearance: hazy, dark amber with a minimal tan-coloured head which hangs around. Palate: full-bodied and thick. Soft, unobtrusive carbonation, a long complex finish, vinous and fruity. Taste: heavy and sweet, pleasantly so. Good solid alcohol kick, definitely fruity. Wow... is this my favourite Trappist? Probably, yes.

Bottle. Deep amber colour with nice with head. Complex fruity and alcohol flavour. Some caramel, a bit wineous and grape. Light bitter, medium sweet (enough but not too much). Could tend to a liquoreuse cereal wine beverage. Really great

33 cl bottle poured into a chalice. Hazy, amber color. Frothy foam that diminish fast to a small crown. Fair lacing. Aroma of a malt, cereals, a banana, an apricot, raisins, some caramel and spicy phenols. Oily in palate, lively carbonated. Full body. Medium sweet and bitter. Fantastic dry, long lasting finish. Some alcohol, but very mild. Beer sticks to lips. Fantastic beer. I will try it after cellaring. Alc. 10% vol. Review date: 09.2016 Expiration date: 03.2019
