spacecube (1339) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
330ml bottle, pours red, small off white head. Aroma is golden apple tang, cherries, carrot cake, toffee, blackcurrant, medium malty, light hop bitterness, almond and nutty notes, resiny. Body is medium full, texture is oily and syrupy, sweet with little hop bitterness. The flavours carry this. Drinks very smoothly, alcohol is blended very well. A complex and tasty brew.

Grandma fruit jam and sweet golden raisins. Too sweet, but could be more complex and with no "extra"

Icedwarf (724) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2015
Licht troebel bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig, licht zuur fruitig, bessen en perzik, echter niet zoet. Smaak wijkt af van meeste quadrupels.

TorbenJensen (515) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2015
This quadrupel has a moderate foam, which is rare for beer which is 12% alc. It smells very much of dried fruits, such as prunes, raisin and figs. The flavor is an elegant and very delicious composition of apricot, peach, raisin and prunes. Many times tastes quadrupels of dried fruits, but this XXXX tastes of fresh fruit, as aforementioned apricots and prunes. Hop bitterness is obviously reduced to the minimum, just like the type to be, but some spices, fresh herbs and a little taste of yeast together form the bitterness in this gem of a quadrupel. The alcohol gives a little tingling sensation in the mouth and it contributes to an abrupt awakening of all taste buds so all impressions allows full enjoyment. Definitely one quadrupel is top notch. It requires long-term enjoyment and great attention.

flemmingwillum (1098) - Nysted, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2015
Rating #1089, flaske fra Voldby Købmandsgård. Brungul, grumset, flot skum. Lidt utydelig duft af fersken og hindbær, men til gengæld er smagen et sandt mekka af bær og tropiske frugter i hobetal. Ren nektar. Tyk, blød og cremet . En rigtig vellykket quadrupel!
