3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium white head over hazy orange beer. White candi sugar, citrus, alcohol. Sweet to neutral, faintly spicy, citrus hints. Medium bodied, and quite slick, bit underattenuated. Very nice, as expected from Scheldebrouwerij. Might be a bit better attenuated, however. Yeast overwhelmed?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at In de Wildeman. Hazy golden, medium head. Sweet, spicy fruit aroma, hints of smoke. Quite sweet flavours, but good fruitiness. Well-crafted Belgian ale that ends up a bit too much on the sweet side.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at ’In De Wildemaan’, Amsterdam, 28-10-09 Pours hazy amber/ orangey with a white bubbly head. There is a perfumey hoppy nose, bit perfumey in the mouth, the alcohol is deceptive but just about noticeable. Touch clinical maybe and a bit soapy at times, and as fine as it is, its not really my thing. A6 A3 F6 P3 Ov12 3.0

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bierkoning. Ambery body with fast-receding head. Sweet, caramel nose. Taste quite tart, with some malts up front. Bitterness and fruits in the finish. Not bad but ABV bursts through a bit loudly for me in the end.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ In de Wildeman, poured rather indifferently by the busy barman. Amber color, cloudy. Orange and cinnamon in the aroma. Sweet, just a bit alcoholic flavor. Low on carbon. Malty with orange notes. Not very much going on in this pretty mediocre ’quadrupel’

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(33cl bottle) Hazy, deep golden colour with a big and persistent beaten egg-white foamy head. Moderately sweet cara-malty, slightly yeasty and fresh herbal hoppy aroma with notes of pineapples, citrus and biscuits. Sweet and slightly sourish fruity flavour, full bodied with a mild carbonation. Slightly sugary (cara-)malty taste with quite a lot of fruity and even a bit of vinous accents, especially towards the finish, accompanied by spicy herbal hops and a light alcoholic burn. Pleasantly hoppy Tripel-like strong Ale, or as the label states “Kempense Quattro” (13.VIII.09).
