3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper pour, huge bubbly off-white head. Yeasty/bread-like nose with some fruitiness under. Medium bodied palate with less carbonation than the huge head would suggest. Taste is a bit typical for a quad, is somewhat subdued, for a quad in my opinion – hard to taste much beyond the yeasty/fruity flavor.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Oct 2005 rating - Very different for a quad. Beer poured with huge head and nice lacing...a little light colored for a quad. HUGE aroma of honey/bananas. Taste was just the right amount of sweetness with definite honey lemony taste others have noticed. Nothng like the other quads I’ve had, but I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle. Poured clear, fiery medium orange with a short, but well-retained cap of beige head. Aroma picked up a nice array of lighter (apricots and oranges) and darker (plums and figs) fruits with some aged caramel and herbal hoppage.. all very well enhanced by a big alcohol presence. The flavor was slick with alcohol interfering with the predominantly sweet base.. caramel, light and dark fruits, and toffee with moderate herbal and prickly grassy bitterness.. left a tacky, sweet, and very warm finish.. good, but a bit too heavy on the booze factor. Heavily-bodied with some sharper alcohol on the back-end. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Labeled 11.5 abv, Production 17JE (if anyone knows what that means please let me know). Pours hazy dark orange with a orange-hued tan head. Strong fruity aroma, with some notes of mango, apricot, and orange, as well as some sweet caramel, honey, and toffee. Flavor is mildly sweet and less fruity than expected. Big on the syrupy malts like caramel and toffee, a bit of a woody undertone, just a bit of hops towards the finish, and just a tinge of alcohol but unoffensive. Palate is full and syrupy/creamy with a woody, fruity caramel finish.

33cl bottle. Good beer and I was surprised that the ABV was not overpowering in the flavor and aroma.
