3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy ruby color with a good amount of off whitehead. Aroma has malty, hints of citrus, belgian yeasts and spices, and bit of alcohol smell. Flavor is sweet in the beginning, turning slightly acid near the end. A bit of carbonation with tiny bubbles tingle giving this a nice mouthfeel. Decent quad, a little harsh but I still enjoyed this one.

Decent Quadrupel but rather plain and ordinary. Probably worst I tried

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Better than tripel. Stronger and more palate than tripel. High Alcohol and weak taste balance have not been pleasant to me. Despite been a good beer, i was expecting more from La Trape.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lively amber/orange color with big present carbonation, head is small but constant. Aroma of some dried fruits. You can taste it is strong and sweet, but there isn’t alcohol taste in it. Full body, lively carbonation. Really good and full bodied beer.

The best La Trappe beer of them all. Dark and complex, strong but subtle. A strong recommendation!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Meget spændende øl, der absolut er en god oplevelse. Lækker smag. Lidt for høj alkoholprocent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This quad tastes lighter than the tripel and dubbel, probably due to a heavy dose of sugar. This makes it very drinkable for a quad. Dark amber, and much lighter in color than all quads I remember.
The complexity is less than the best examples, such as Westvleteren, Rochefort or StBernardus. This yeast is the most "banany" of all belgian yeasts. Aromas of banana, caramel, toast, spicy phenols. Flavors of banana, caramel, chocolate, toast, spicy phenols. Dry effervescent finish.

Goodness .... brew day for me and this is what comes out. A fantastic example if the style.
Aroma of a sour or saison .... Tart. The pour is dark amber with a relatively president light tan head. The flavor is full and complex caramel .....
This is a fabulous example of what I like from a Quad .... worth a try!
