Differently standing out from other Belgian and Belgian-style quads is the slight tartness from the cherries. It makes it original. High carbo like one would expect, with a nice dark golden hue.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 8/30 tasting notes - nutty, molasses, raisins, maple, bready. Where is the kriek? Quad flavors are dominant, big meaty sipping beer. Very nice American quad, true to the style. I wanted the kriek to be a bigger part of this, but still an excellent beer.

Very solid beer. Nice clean fruity flavor with crisp bite on the backside. Great malty flavor offset with just the right bitter notes.

Nice beer. Has this numbers of times and I brew a clone that comes close. Very sweet with a bit of the tartness of the cherries up front. Nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a Trappist glass. Minimal head on a hazy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is rich with ripe apricot, banana and lemon.
The taste is complex and nicely balanced. Lots of fruit which brings a moderate sweetness to the overall flavor. It has a slight sour finish.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation.

Pours a rich, caramel color. Very good, with spice, bread and malt notes. Strong and flavorful - though it is high in alcohol it isn’t overpowering.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not much aroma coming from glass. Pours dark brown with light fluffy head. Flavors of malt and brown sugar. Lively light mouthfeel. Sweet finish. Overall I find the taste lacking real flavor. A little disappointed thought ommegang could produce a better quad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 375mL bottle. Pours cloudy brown. Tan head; good lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, dark cherry, oatmeal cookie, with hints of spice. Flavour is dark malt, cherry, with sour lambic notes and a nice crisp well-hopped finish. Beautiful Belgian Quad.

It has the smell of tobacco, like black cherry and cherry pipe tobacco. It also has a yeasty smell to it as well. It is a deep plum color in the light with a rich head that is medium brown. It has a very complex taste with cherries and a bold aftertaste.
