Fules (303) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2016
Mély borostyán színű, fűszeres illatú. Nagyon fűszeres, nagyon komlós. Közepesen kesernyés, testes sör. Érezni, hogy erős, de nem mondanám meg hogy 10 százalékos.

wozap (620) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Leżakowane, data do 04.2016. Ciemno-miedziane, piana średnia, przechodzi w drobną, trwała. Lekki gushing podrywa wszystkie osady z dna butelki, więc piwo jest pełne drobinek. Aromat suszonych i czerwonych owoców i cherry. Smak to niesamowita owocowość, jak w aromacie, spora słodowość oraz nuty miodowe. Szybko rozgrzewające, średnio nasycone.

Bottle @ Citadelle. Deep Amber pour with a small head. Nose is has plenty of candied dark fruits - plums, red apple, cherry. A bit of marzipan. Mild spice. glazed donut. Flavor is fairy sweet. Spice and a somewhat hot finish keep things from feeling flabby. Some banana flambee. Prune. Expressive yeast. Big profile. Moderately strong carb.

Quadrupel er La Trappe tungeste ale med en fantastisk ravfarve. Dens varm og intens smag er rig og velafbalanceret. Maltet søde, brændt lidt, og behagelig bitter med en sød eftersmag. Quadrupel fortsætter med at gære efter aftapning og tilbyder aroma af banan, mandler og vanille ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavidAust (169) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle into tulip glass. Just too strong on the alcohol to be great, but still good. Very well carbonated, and malty / sweet rather than bitter. However the alcohol content comes through with a bit of a burn. Might appreciate more if I was bitterly cold and needed something to warm me through.

75 cl. best before 10/2016, aperta il 7 maggio 2016. Rosso rubino con riflessi ramati, schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma di chiodi di garofano, uva passa, prugna e leggera banana matura. Al palato stesse componenti, in aggiunta leggera amarena, finale erbaceo arricchito da una punta di cacao amaro. Corpo medio-pieno, mediamente carbonata, bottiglia che inizia a sentire il peso dei suoi anni.

kacperred (159) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 4, 2016
Butelka 0,75l. Barwa ciemnobursztynowa, zamglona, piana gruba, drobnopęcherzykowa, trzyma się bardzo długo, znakomity lacing. W aromacie słodko, przyprawowo, charakterystycznie dla belgów, w tle jakby trochę bananów i może minimalnie trawy od chmielu. W smaku minimalnie gorzej: nadal jest solidnie słodowo, trochę przypraw jak na klasztorniaka przystało, w tle banany. jednak po przełknięciu pojawia się gryzący posmak alkoholu, jest on dość mocno wyczuwalny. Piwo jak na quada jest stosunkowo wytrawne i odrobinę puste, trochę za bardzo czuć alkohol. Ale jednak bardzo przyjemnie rozgrzewa i pije się je z (umiarkowaną) przyjemnością.

Nische (1696) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle from Maakun, many thanks! Pours clear amber with lasting, small, creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, berries and yeast. Taste is sweetish with nuts, caramel, raisins, dates, yeast and light banana. Hides ABV quite well. Nice one!

wxman (1700) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Pours a pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma is bananas and coriander. Taste is classic Quad. There’s banana and clove, along with very sweet pale malt (almost cloying). Some bread dough comes through as well, along with some mild sourness. ABV is there, but only as warmth after the swallow. No phenols detected. Smooth and nice, but a real sipper, primarily because of the sweetness rather than the alcohol.
