Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat, yeast and biscuit malt. The flavor is similar with some biscuits, oranges, lemons and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Douberd (3988) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle at home, 330 ml, into a tulip glass. ABV 9%. Light golden orange colour, clear body. Tall head sitting on top, white, thick and soapy. Excelletn retention and veautiful lacing on the glass. Great aroma, fruity, yeast, a bit of spices, some dough as well. Taste is also great since it basically follows the aroma. Nice fruity notes, some yeast, spicy but just a tad bit. The alcohol is there but it is hardly notable. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste too, with good duration. Medium to thick body, soft carbonation but on good levels. Pleasanlty surprised by this one, I wasn’t expecting it at all. Very drinkable too and quite sessionable besides the high alcohol. Very tasty!

DSG (9563) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Deep golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, fruit liqueur and alcohol. Sweet and spicy flavor, alcoholic and a bit sugary. Medium-bodied.

Appearance attracts a cloudy yeasty and amber. Velvety white foam invites you to explore the beer. Durable foam to give the beer’s appearance. The aromatic fragrance is a little bit starch. In spite of this fragrance to conquer yeast, malt and spices. Soft citrus fades as soon as caramel malt and spicy alcoholic heat from the road. Caramel maltiness and yeast spiciness to hide the lingering alcohol heat. The whole beer is hiding alcoholic and easy to drink.

worldbeertaste (1787) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Medium cloudy yellow banana yellow with white, foamy, lasting, thick, lacy head. Smells of yeast that consumes the nose. Apricot, citrus orange, pineapples and alcohol. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet taste of fruit (apricots), with light sourness and an overall herbal yeast hoppy finish. Bitter and peppery with sugar candy and a medium alcohol hit. Not sure why it says its a Quattro?

mathieuc (2631) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
Pours a clear copper at first with a big bubbly head that receeds into a little cover that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fruity, spicy, some rough alcohol. Taste is less sweet than expected with a lot of warming alcohol and some bitterness. Flavors are not that distinctive and alcohol is not too well hidden. Fruits, spices again and candi sugar make up the flavors but they are crushed by alcohol. Average.

tom10101 (4524) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy golden/copper with a small fully lasting white head and little lacing. Aroma is of belgian yeast, spices, herbal/floral notes, spices, light salty presence and fruits. Taste is moderately sweet with spices, herbal/floral notes, malt, light candi sugar and a moderate alcohol warming. Medium body. Good carbonation. Good Belgian Strong Ale (almost a Quad). It’s not as deep and complex as the best Belgian, but it’s quite an enjoyable brew. Good beer!

corkyrory66 (1116) - BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2013
Une bière à l’étiquette humoristique où deux primitifs ont emporté la tour de l’église Ste Catherine après avoir bu une ’n toeback !!! Cela situe l’ambiance de dégustation !!! Et d’ailleurs cette bière provoque immédiatement l’admiration dès le versage. Couleur abricot intense. Clarté tout à fait trouble à cause de la levure qui s’invite au versage... Bulles très fines en fontaine généreuse au centre du calice. Mousse blanche légèrement beige qui tient à 1 cm, très crémeuse avec des petits cratères. Une merveille. Arômes de céréales, orange, pamplemousse, cake, jus de raisin blanc et une pointe de girofle. Volume très soyeux de la 1ère bouche magnifique, offrant une bouche pleine avec des céréales et des agrumes. Arrière-bouche fraîche avec un très beau houblon. 2ème superbe bouche équilibrée, parfaite. Douce et fine, magnifique. La 3ème bouche est une merveille pure, avec une saveur de 1ère classe et une texture à faire rêver. La longueur s’ouvre sur une superbe entame des prolongations. La levure est précise, souple, bien faite. L’alcool est bien dosé, fort, et aide vraiment à la saveur. La finale offre un côté fleuri, houblonné, boisé … le tout enrichi de céréales orientée sur le très beau Cara 20. Très grande bière, très grande conception de la bière avec un alcool fort qui soutient magnifiquement le gustatif. Du grand savoir-faire. De la belle œuvre.
