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

DuffMan (7467) - 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 (13154) - 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 (50) - 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. Its stong but I dont mind the flavor.

northropfrye (2445) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Light golden orange body, some head and lacing. Sweet appley aroma, corn, bubblegum, Belgian candy, vanilla. Taste is also sweet candy corn and some hot booze on the finish. Listed as 11.5%. Not bad.

dfearnley (1153) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle to goblet Citrus, whiskey, plum liquor, malt, yeast and some caramel. Clear light amber with a thin and bright white head. Grapefruit, orange, peach, pepper, yeast, booziness, and balanced hoppiness. This is a good beer, but maybe a touch too thin; the alcohol presence is there and not overwhelming. I toyed with taking what was left after my tasting and warming it up as the brewery suggested, but I was enjoying it so much, that I chose to keep drinking.

355ml brown bottle. Beer #24 of the 2014 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Gold, pretty clear. Faint trace of white head on top. Nose has some sweet alcohol, some fruit. Taste has some fruitiness, sweet malts, alcohol, light hops. Alcohol and some hops int he aftertaste. Full bodied. Not that complex, just ok.

shorlin (716) - St. Johns, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pour is a clear copper with a ring of head, some nice lacing. Aroma is spicy fruity hop, some Belgian yeast and alcohol. Feel is very noticeably creamy, full bodied with some mild alcohol warming. Taste is sweet heading to bitter with solid booziness. Overall, its pretty good: not a big dark quad though.

monk191 (1212) - California, USA - DEC 26, 2014
An average quadrupel, not bad but not that interesting either. Pours a thick but clear orange with a thick white head. Smells of malts, cinnamon and fruit. Taste is quite creamy, malty and boozy with a hint of citrus. Boozy mouthfeel and Warms on the way down. Had in the bottle.

Pours a crystal clear dark gold. Loose white head. Big sticky sweet palm sugar and bubblegum nose. Sticky thick mid palate, soft carb. Palm sugar, white wine, and bubble gum mid palate. Sticky, filmy finish. I don't like it.
