COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like most big Belgian holiday beers, Noel is bursting with subtly complex flavors and fits no particular beer style. Its explosion of sensations comes from just Belgian Pilsner malt, cane sugar, Motueka hops, Trappist yeast, water, and fermentation. Drink warm or cold in various glassware shapes and sizes to discover all its nuances. Entendez should age extremely well for years to come. Availability: Bottles and Draft

Dogbrick (10714) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2016
Sample at Tap House Grill. This brew pours a slightly hazy copper color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of medicinal fruit, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is sweet with a fruity and malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

sulawang (896) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
Visual: Pours copper orange-brown with no head, thin ringed retention, small clusters of slow streams. Nose: candi toffee barley malt. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: thick viscosity, immediate (lvl-9)-sweetness w/ alcohol Mid-palate: zingy alcohol, tangy gag-reflex inducing, (MAIN) plum, Belgian candi barley malt, mild honey, ethanol Finish: alcohol hit, lingering sweet malt, rough finish. Summary: This one did not go down well at all, it was one of the rare beers that actually caused a gag reflex. The balance of alcohol, flavour and texture is not there. La Trappe is a quad I had recently that is certainly better than this.

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA; 11.4% ABV
Hazy golden color with creamy head. The aroma is too mild, the flavor is sweetish, the body is bold and a bit oily, ordinary bitterness, light yeast fruitiness, clear alcohol perception.
Not bad, but confusing.

Rating #1423 - 25.12.2014 355mL Bottle #24 in the 2014 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Clear, golden pour, bubbly tan head that fades to a ring. Aroma is light sweet juicy white grapes, lavender, burnt sugar, mild alcohol. Taste is more of the same, strong bodied quad is charged up with candy sugar, caramel - decent bitterness. Lovely pale quad.

maley1 (1000) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
On tap. Clear copper pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, caramel, fruits, pine and heavy on the alcohol. Taste of caramel, yeast, malts, sugar cane, grapefruit, hops, pine resin, unpleasent alcohol and syrupy hop finish. Full bodied, lower carbonation, very cloying. This was a complete mess of a style which I love, blech!

Aroma is sour grapes, slight funk, vinegar and raspberry. Taste is sour, light apple, curd , cherry and vinegar. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

DuffMan (8808) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle, from the beer advent calendar. Medium orangish-gold, white head that reduces to a persistent skein. Sweet profile of honey and hay, fresh pineapple undertones with a slight tang in the finish that keeps this from becoming cloying. Estery spice. I was skeptical, but I actually enjoyed every sip through to the end. Very tasty, well balanced.

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
Hazy dull tan, no head. Plasticy nose, light pale orchard fruit notes, sweet, has an orchard fruit note, but also plastic and alcohol. Reminds me of Gulden Draak, which is to say not my favourite, but drinkable.

ryanhunter_4 (196) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
355 ml bottle given to me by a coworker and poured at home. pours a cloudy orange with a minimal beige head. I smelled something sweet and got a strong alcohol smell that stuck in my nose. Taste started off sweet citrus and finished bitter with an alcohol kick. Not sure if I had a quad before so I have no frame of reference. It’s stong but I don’t mind the flavor.
