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.

Pours cloudy brown in color. Lingering creamy head, strong hints of fruit in the aroma. Complex taste of banana, figs, dark fruits and yeast. Overall the fruits stand out the most giving it a rather light taste for a Quadrupel.

Nossa! Mais uma cerveja perfumada! Essa é a palavra certa. Aroma doce e de banana, refrescante. O creme se formou bonito e levemente amarelado, mas logo se desfez. Ficou uma pequena camada até o fim do copo. A cor do líquido é de um âmbar tendendo para avermelhado. Bonito de se ver. Essa é uma cerveja doce e intensa. O álcool aparece bem. Noz moscada, melado, porém sem nenhum sinal de caramelo. Tem algo de framboesa. A carbonatação elevada cai bem, preenche o volume de cada gole.

mezr (57) - California, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Poured from a corked 25.4 oz bottle. A somewhat hazy, amber-orange color with an off-white frothy head. Aroma is sweet and has a definite hint of banana. Taste follows the aroma with a medium sweetness to it. Like other Belgians the carbonation is almost fizzy. Medium body and a long finish that reveals a certain warmth and trace of vanilla. Best as the chill wears off and it nears room temp.

Fashawn (85) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 20, 2014
Birra che si presenta di un torbido colore ambrato, carico, che ricorda il mogano, mente la schiuma è quasi assente, a parte l’orlo attorno al bicchiere. Al naso è possibile trovare profumi come frutta candita (albicocca, mela, pesca), marzapane, sentori floreali. In bocca rispetta i sentori, ma il corpo scarico le fa perdere consistenza. Comunque una buona Quadrupel

zizzybalubba (1421) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
330 mL bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Reddish orange pour with a foamy light khaki head. Aroma of Belgian candi sugar, bubble gum, and faint floral hops. Taste offers ripe banana, circus peanut candy (weird, but this is exactly what it tastes like to me), faint chocolate, and booze. Sweetness lingers on the palate somewhat but I think the alcohol helps to lift this from clinging to the tongue. The end result is a very well done and balanced quad.

Kauge (135) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from a Maksimarket near Rakvere in Sept 2014. BB 02/2017. It is a hazy, dark amber with a red hue; the big, frothy and bubbling head retains and laces well. It looks beautiful! The aroma... a fantastic alcoholic warmth coming through... it’s doughy, biscuity, white wine acidic, spicy, caramelly, clovey... Complex and intoxicating! Taste is quite sweet and caramelly - at first there’s some berry or fruit tartness, then gets more malty (dried apples, clove, vanilla), finishing quite boozy, grainy and dry. Medium to full body, active carbonation, sticky palate. Overall: a very enjoyable, crisp, spicy and boozy Quad.
