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.

Dit bier is reeds lange tijd mijn absolute favoriet. Er nu een neutrale beoordeling over schrijven zal dus niet zo eenvoudig zijn. Allereerst het aroma. De geur van La trappe Quadrupel is scherp en uitgesproken zoet met een subtiel banaan accent hetgeen wijst op de hogere gisting. Het bier nodigt uit om te proeven, zowel qua geur als qua uiterlijk. De amber kleur is vrij transparant en mits gebruik van het bijpassende glas krijg je de perfecte schuimkraag. Het mondgevoel is verrassend aangenaam, zacht bruisend. De textuur van het bier draagt ertoe bij dat de smaak lang draagt op papillen en achteraan in de mond. De smaak is vol, zacht zoet met toetsen van banaan en een discrete fruitige ondertoon die doet denken aan rode vruchten. De smaak is in perfecte harmonie met het aroma. De afdronk is vol en rijk en doet je verlangen naar de volgende slok.Voor mij is la trappe quadrupel één van de betere trappisten, met en zeer unieke doch toegankelijke smaak.

0,33 l bottle. Dark cloudy amber in the glass. Small head. Fresh berriefruits on the nose. Starts heavy, nearly oily, resin, dark fruits with sweetness, belgian yeast. But also alcoholic. Present malt in the background. Complex as expected. I enjoyed it a lot.

Poured into a Trappist glass and maybe it was my pouring skills but I was somewhat disappointed at the lack of head. However, it was a nice hazy bronze/copper color with some long lasting lacing throughout. The aroma was pretty amazing. Malty, caramel and some fruits. The taste was not complex but still nice. I couldn’t really put my finger on the flavor but it seemed like a mix of caramel and a mild lingering alcohol taste yet sweet and without a bitter aftertaste. I found it to be smooth and easy to drink. It’s a great beer overall.

Un gout corsé prononcé, une amerture très agréable, une touche de caramel et un alcool qui vien sublimer le tout. Un final plutôt amère .

fkoolen (362) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle at home. Beautiful hazy Amber colour, nicely lacing beige creamy head that lasts. Nose and taste with caramel, toffee, dried fruits like figs and dades and almond: barley-wine like complexity in the sweetness. Nicely spicy and herbal Belgian yeast character alongside really smooth (!) malts. Finish is sweet but short. No big alcoholic punch despite the high abv. Carbonation is too high for my liking (typical La Trappe), good body, soft mouthfeel.

Pours cloudy deep brownish amber with tall off-white head. Aroma of hazel nuts, muscovado, dried fruit, spices, slightly burnt notes. Taste is rich sweet, nutty and spicy, with just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Rich, creamy body with soft carbonation.

markschiedon (276) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Tasting blind from 33 cl bottle. A flowery aroma, with alcohol and almonds. The clear red beer has a small brown head. The sweet taste gives a warm feeling inside. Medium carbonated
