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.

This beer will always have a special meaning to me. I shared this beer with my girlfriend on our one year anniversary while dining at the Archer Ale House in Bellingham. It pours a pretty light brown color, completely clear with a nice thick and dense white head. A big aroma of bread yeast, fruits and spices sneak into my olphactory receptors. On first sip I notice a rather warming alcohol flavor that gave way to dates, fruits, yeasts and then finishing with a nice dry mouth feel. I might have to buy some and lay it down for more anniversaries with my girlfriend.

Jultsu (155) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2014
75ml pullo, parasta ennen: 01-2014. Alkoholinen, hunajainen, luumuinen tuoksu. Siman ruskea, vaahdoton, lähes hapoton. Liukas, vetinen, rusinainen, alkoholinen suutuntuma. Jälkimakuna vetinen alkoholin polte. Todennäköisesti 7 kuukautta yli päiväyksen vaikutti makuun. Odotin laajempaa maku/hajuskaalaa.
