4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared. Pours deep ruby/brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma is very fruity, red fruits, raspberries, then some molasses, caramel, chocolate, toffee and grapes. Taste is light sour, moderate sweet and light bitter. Long fruity finish, some alcohol. Very very well balanced. Normally quads aren’t my thing, but this one is beautifully done, the barrel aging and raspberry additions work amazingly well. Top notch.

Depending on the age (or batch?) the molasses can overwhelm the raspberries. However, when in balance, one of the best beers ever.

Quick distracted review done at party……….. brownish body with red elements, tons of floaties fill my glass. This beer is good. Light quad like flavors with noticeable raspberry. Is there wine? Ya I think I can taste wine. Man I like this beer I wish I had more time to focus on it. THANKS KAARE

Smells like fresh raspberry, taste does not have nearly as much raspberry, some white wine, touch of dark fruit. Reminds me of a barrel aged rubaeus.
