Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of MaltOMeal. Hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Aroma of overripe fruit and a little yeast. Quite full-bodied, a little low in carbonation, sweetish overripe fruit - almost syrupy - with delicious Sherry accents. The finish is alcoholic with hardly any hop presence. Really, this is a Quad all over. 290509

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2009
Blind tasting at Papsø’s
Hazy orange-amber color. Sweet aroma, fruity caramel (Belgian style), with oak sweetness and light vanilla; persistent; later, a bit alcoholic. Good body, mainly due to a sweet caramel flavor, with malt, some fruitness (peaches, tangerines and sweet oranges), good bitterness, but too much alcohol at the end. Confused, but good.
