Way better than I expected, big thanks to Adam for the bottle many years ago, opened Zwanze 2014. Sweet with caramels, vanilla, dark fruits, but not cloying and surprisingly a really nice texture. Smooth, almost creamy. Drinking very well at the moment, don’t regret opening this one bit.

Lots of pear some. Funky pear flavor but it doesn’t mix well worth the palate. OK to drink but difficult to pair.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
A murky brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of dark fruits, molasses, iron notes, curacao, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with dark fruits, cooked apple purée, molasses, maple, a bit bit tired, OK.

Bottle shared by Amyliz4. Muchas gracias. The beer appears dark brown with a quarter inch of tan head. The aroma is fabulous, with prominent yeast and malt, brown sugar, caramels, toffee. Smells Belgian and wonderful. Fabulous taste. Easily one of the best American examples of a quad I have tasted. Brown sugar and molasses are tempered by a bready yeast presence. Medium bodied and silky smooth on the palate. Overall, a very good beer that I am ecstatic to try. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-01-2012

I find it funny that I never had a chance to try this. Well at RBSG Patrick Rue was giving us a tour of the barrel room and he so graciously shared a bottle with us. I am guessing this has been cold since release, and its held up pretty well. Better than I expected to be honest. A cloudy brown pour left very little head. The aroma was full of toffee, rich brown sugar, figs, dates and golden raisins. Flavor is sweet, lots of dried fruit coming through, some vanilla, maple.

Poured from bottle, pours a very hazy brown with a quickly diminishing off white head that is gone before you blink, the aroma has a ton of dark fruit and fig, the flavor is big and bold with a ton of fig and dark fruit with a slick mouthfeel. I really didn’t expect much out of this one but I would drink again if I ever had the opportunity to.

A - Pours a cloudy ruby with a touch of brown mixed in with a thin finger of khaki head. The head fades very quickly leaving behind a touch of lace. S - Aroma is full of dark fruit with some plum and a touch of apple with a hint of Belgian yeast spice, brown sugar, and a bit of booze. T - Starts off with some sweet dark fruit with some plum and dates with some brown sugar sweetness and some Belgian yeast spice. Through the middle, some apple comes through with some more residual and candi sugars and some fuller dark fruit flavor. The finish is a mix of lingering dark fruit sweetness with some abbey yeast, spice, and some booze. M - Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Feels smooth with a warming and sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. Really smooth and nicely balanced. Good American take on the Belgian Quad style. Good rich dark fruit flavors.

Hazy brown beer. Crispy semi dry palate. Moderate carbonation. Fruity malt with a coca cola like tang and a pinch of chocolate. Finishes with more of the same and a little alcohol (which is generally well hidden). Unusual flavour combination. Drinkable.
