COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Urthel Samaranth 12 Quadrium Ale is a malty, full-bodied special Ale, brewed in a way that only Belgian Brewers can. Huge mouthfeel and layers and levels of flavor make Urthel Samaranth the perfect beer for the end of a meal or at the finish of a special day. And when you want something different, Urthel Samaranth 12 Quadrium Ale is with its fine bitterness, definitely something different... Try it! First brewed at Van Steenberge, now brewed at Koningshoeven - La Trappe brewery.

Deep orange colored beer with a cream colored head. Plummy aroma, belgian yeast, brown suga, light spice. Flavorwas fruity, light banana, yeasty, plum again, some booze. A touch hot, but the body was fairly nice. Not bad.

BB 2006... Cap came off with the loudest pop I’ve ever heard. It poured a hazy orange brown color with a medium sized, creamy, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, banana, caramel malt, light roast, vanilla, and yeast. Taste of caramel malt, citrus, dried fruits, honey, spices, and a peppery alcohol finish.

Draft at Monks Cafe in Philly. Nice solid beer. Good malt flavor all the way through. Alcohol was hidden very well.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2005 This big beer hides its alcohol strength very well. The beer is hazy and gold. The white head isvery large, rocky, and long lasting. The simple aroma is mostly of light fruit; similar to a tripel. The flavor is fruit as well, but much richer with a powerful sweet taste. No alcohol flavor at all. There was a light spice I couldn’t pick out. For a beer of this strengh there is great balance and the alcohol is hidden nicely.

Thanks to Rudy for sharing this big assed bottle. Tim was also there rating this. Sweet, yeastly, banana aroma with some vinous properties. Moderately hazy amber copper color with an off-white head. Very carbonated, spritzy, sweet, spicy flavor with pineapples present.

Ya know, belgian. Plum, pineapple, slightly vinous, very fruity & doughy nose. Somewhat cloudy orange body. Flavor is orange & clove but not super deep. Pears, yeast, alcohol, fruit, pineapple. Overwhelming alcohol. Too orangey.

Draught at Ølbaren. Clear yellow coloured with a lasting white head. Fruity aroma with spicy notes and a bit sweetness. Sweet fruity flavour with spicy and alcoholic notes. Well balanced hoppy finish.

Really,really effervescent.It almost bubbles the taste right off your tongue.You have got to pay good attention to the esters or you might miss them due to the bubbles carrying the flavors right down your throat before you taste it.Nose is mildly fruity with some aromatic spices.No where near any of the other BIG quads but there is that Belgian yeast that lends some kiwi and papaya flavors.
