3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home shared by Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Clear dark orange or light reddish color, medium to full off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, rich deep wood, red fruit, liquor. Taste malts, oranges come trough way stronger than I had expected, alcohol, again strongly wood, quite strongly liquor, quite sweet. A bit too much oranges and sweetness for my liking. Great aroma, but the taste does not really do it for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home from drinkstore. Pours marmalade orange, white head disappears. Aroma has so much going on - orange liquor, orange rind, tobacco, cinnamon, nail polish remover, dry oak overwhelmed by a sour aroma. Then flavour is sweet orange liquor, syrup with a mild alcohol finish. The body is full and a dry oak finish. None of the chemical nose is in the flavour. This is an unusual beer and a bit outrageous.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle shared from Redmonds. Thanks elbernays. Mad nose, pithy orange, white wine, oak, and a band aid, chemical note. Flavour is better, sherry rich, cinnamon spice, candied orange. Lush mouthfeel, slick, no carbonation. Real dessert wine characteristics. Better than the sum of its parts.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown with a minimal diminishing white head. Booze, paint thinner, oranges, pear, canned peaches, wood, red candy. Flavor more resembles a sour brown than a quadruple, taste as well with some light sour notes. Medium/full body, sticky syrupy texture, soft carbonation, medium/heavy sweet and light/medium sour with little bitterness. Not unpleasant, but I don’t get the idea and it bears little resemblance to a quadrupel. Don’t understand, don’t want.

Eerst even een grand marnier gedronken als opwarmertje. Net iets troebel oranje rood van kleur. Aroma is ietwat zuur met sinaasappel. Smaak is zoetzuur, sinaasappel, beetje hout, alcohol. Apart en smakelijk.
