This one somehow reminded me of the La Trappe Quad ... it’s like a copy of it. Very Good beer though.

Nice foamy head. Aroma of citrus, sweet bready molasses and dried fruit. Tastes sweet with same flavors with some alcohol and a metallic flavor. Too sweet but has a nice mouth feel and good carbonation.

Arôme sur la banane et l’alcool. Belle mousse qui tient, couleur ambrée. En bouche, fluide et alcoolisée. Finale franche et moyennement longue sur l’alcool. Bonne bière bien qu’elle soit un peu trop orientée sur l’alcool. Une bière de caractère à accompagner d’un plat.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy golden/light amber with a big foamy head that leaves lacing. The aroma contains different fruits, spices, sugar, yeast and dough. Medium sweet towards a light, not too dry bitterness. Medium in body, lively carbonation and thick texture. A big punch of alcohol for the lovers. Great, a classic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml pour from room-temp bottle in Kazakhstan. Pours a deep orange, clear, very heavily carbonated, large bubbly fluffy off-white head. Nose is sweet and fruity, citrus (orange and lemon), floral, maybe honey, some biscuit, and some dough. Body is medium-full, creamy up front with a dry sticky finish. Taste carries a lot of that in the nose, with some baking spices and more fruitiness added in. I don’t get as much of the bready/doughy notes in the taste though. Alcohol is notable, but not overpowering. Warming.
