3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours purplish red with moderate but brief tan head. Aroma dark fruits, a little sourness and surprisingly some hops. Taste matches with dark fruits, candi sugar, belgian yeast and pine/resinous hops. Palate full with moderate carbonation. Finish slightly bitter and prolonged with dark fruits and mild hops. More hops than most quads but not bad, I would say a nice balance but not a traditional quad. As the advertising says I imagine the taste of this will vary a lot with aging.
