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.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2008 This was my first bottle in 10 years. It was as I remember. I had the 750ML corked version. The pour: deep caramel color with a head with large bubbles. (This usually is a result of bottle conditioning.) The bouquet: heavy "Trappist" yeast smell. Very fruity- dates, figs, raisins. The palate: intense, malty, sweet- you can definitely tell this ale is fermented with Belgian candy sugar. The finish: definite alcohol "bite" at the back of the tongue. Aftertaste: nutty, toffeeish. Very good Quad... not the world’s very best, but it’s up there.

wvhoran (161) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange-brown with a firm and creamy off-white head. The aroma is fruity, caramel-esque, of yeasts and spices. The flavour is sweet with ripe peach, nectarine, caramel, yeast, pepper. Nice, not complex, but nice.

Bottle/tap, dark beer quite strong, tastes heavy, perfect for winter days, strong flavours, a bit wooden, over all a very good trappist

Niller (576) - Hammel, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from Brugsen. Pours amber with a good beige head. Malty taste with notes of fruits, caramel, alcohol, banana. The texture is oily. Creamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Nice bittersweet alcoholic finish with banana notes. Quite good

La trappe Quadrupel is behoorlijk zoet! Het biertje zelf aan uiterlijk ziet er wel mooi uit

Mosby54 (10) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a small, white head. Banana in the nose. Tastes malty sweet, but with a nice edge of bitterness. Although 10%, it's nicely balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HomerBeerOdysy (16) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2014
APPEARANCE - Clear dark orange with a light brown 5-finger head that lasts. SMELL/AROMA/SCENT - Sweet, but not much aroma overall. TASTE - Brown sugar, very Belgian, very sweet. Herbaceous, piney. ABV not too well hidden. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Beer is light, well-carbonated, with a pleasantly creamy head. VALUE - $10. - About average for a Belgian at a bar. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Very light and well-carbonated for a Belgian quad. Would be nicer if ABV were well-hidden.

milo91hd (87) - Parabita, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Ottima birra con un bel colore ambrato scuro e un cappello di schiuma non molto persistente, odore e sapore richiamano molto frutta secca insieme a delle note alcoliche importanti

edsspoon (367) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle - hazy amber with a bubbly beige head. Okay lacing. Aroma of banana and clove with some peach and pear. A little alcohol works its way through. Taste of banana, pear, bubblegum and sweet malts. Nicely warming. Medium body, medium carbonation. Amazing.
