UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Pretty good looking beer, orange to red and a bit hazy, good head and lacing. Great fruitiness with all the dark fruits represented, with a bit of caramel malt and no shortage of spices. A touch boozy but what do you expect with a 12% brew. Delicious and well worth trying.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a goblet.
3.0 A: Moderately hazed amber color. Just a half finger of frothy off-white head that fell quickly and left no lacing.
3.0 S: This is super plummy with a strong vinous character. Dates and fig behind that. Surprisingly lacking the telltale Belgian yeast spiciness. Sweet and boozy.
3.0 T: As expected, the taste is quite vinous as well. Again, tons of plum with dates, fig, raisin, and prune. A good bit of caramel, toastiness, and even some molasses notes. Again, a bit too sweet and definitely too boozy.
2.5 M: Heavier medium body. The amount of carbonation is fine, but itís lacking the spritziness that I love in a quad. Reasonably creamy, but a bit too thick and chewy.
2.5 D: This isnít too bad, but I really donít like the vinous character and the mouthfeel is a total turn off.

Tasted on 11/13/11 from a capped 750mL bottle shared by Rachel. Pours clear, bright orange-amber with an average off-white head that leaves a thin layer of even lace. The nose is spicy and malty with bread, caramel, and some spicy yeast, and light bitterness. The flavor is sweet with bread and caramel, a bit of spicy yeast and a bit of bitterness. The body is medium with super lively, mouth-filling carbonation, and a long malty and spicy finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle... bright orange amber, light tan head, good lace... this is a pretty average quad, light aroma, not much candy sugar or dark fruits, more spice than anything, the finish is a bit rough, lots of alcohol, sweeter than normal boring quad, but sadly better than most American quad attempts

750ml bottle gotten in trade with Mr, Beardy Bishop in Tenn. Opened into pint glass. Smells of belgian funk with apple cider and maybe some wood. Looks kinda hazy amber with tan head. Tastes clean and amber at first then some delicious funks come across with winelike sour bitterness. Also some wood and grass in there. Definitely a complex beer meant for sipping. Overall 7.5 of 10.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml from Pickís poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. Pours a cloudy dark orange with about 1 finger of off-white head. Aroma of fermented citrus fruit and grapes. It smells like a nice dry cab sauv. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly sour. Tastes like grapes and something sweet, possibly honey. Strong taste of alcohol. Medium bodied with a thick and creamy texture. Fizzy carbonation and a long alcohol burn finish. Overall, not too bad. Not my favorite from these guys, but very drinkable nonetheless.
