4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow! THis is just outstanding. My friend told me this is one of the few beers he can find nothing wrong with, and now I know why. It was hard not giving this great beer a perfect score. It pours a murky redish light brown with an off white thick but dissapating head that leaves a mighty fine lace. The aroma is amazing. Bananas and prunes, and yet so much more that I can’t put my finger on. And the flavor...mmmmm...it’s fruity and balanced well with hops. Yeah, theyr’e there. The reasin that I gave a 9 for flavor is that the alcohol is quite detectable where I think it could be hidden a little more. The palate has a nice dry, lasting bitterness. With an alcohol sting. Overall I think it’s by far the best Abt ever.

Classic quad stuff going on... plums, sweet malts, bread... cherries... bit more of a hoppy bite to this than with some of the other renowned quads, which makes for a fresher beer. Slips down far too easily.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mousse blanche qui disparaît très vite, bière de couleur brune, belle carbonisation, arôme de levures belges, caramel, goût malt, caramel, c’est doux mais fort en alcool. Aucune amertume, l’alcool se ressent jusqu’au final. 33Cl Paris Saint-Bière

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best examples of a belgian quad. Its also a great gateway beer into the craft scene, which is what the beer was for me. Often compared to the Westy 12, recently thats somewhat valid. The Westy 12, as it is brewed recently, is a more hoppy, far more drinkable, and seemingly more alcoholic version of this.
