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.

Bottle. Pours clear hazel with light, persistent head. Immediate taste was malt, fruit and bitterness, followed by banana and caramel. A complex beer and very enjoyable. Didnt notice the high ABV.

I love me a good quad... and this is a good one. Surprising bitter, but the classic fruitiness and slight sweetness in the finish... love it...

HipHopOpotamus (210) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Good beer purchased from LCBO in a 750ml bottle. good beer, dry fruits, warm finish, with 10% alc. volume, it is hidden rather well making it very drinkable.

guzgorog (169) - FRANCE - JAN 15, 2014
Bière cruivrée avec des reflets rouilles, belle mousse pétillante qui se fait entendre et retombe vite comme pour du champagne. Nez de caramel et de banane. Sucrée et liquoreuse, goût prononcé de banane venant de la levure, légèrement boisée, l’amertume apparaît en finale. Très bonne bière bien qu’un peu trop sucrée à mon goût.

I love a great Quad---smooth and sweet. A little bitter in just the right places. I would recommend to any Quad enthusiast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheNucleator (21) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 13, 2014
Very rich malt aroma. No hops on the nose. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming. Great clarity and huge head as is expected from a highly carbonated import from Belgium. Soft white head fades fairly quickly which is to be expected due to 10% ABV. Nice light amber colour. Very malty taste, sweet but alcohol is detectable. Taste is very reflective of the aroma. Creamy mouth feel and good body make this a satisfying, dangerously drinkable beer.
