I can tell that this is a very good quad ale in the belgium style. sweet syrupy beers are not my thing so i just kinda enjoy this, but not enough to want another sip.

Bottle. Faintly cloudy dark amber color with large foamy off-white head, faint bread aroma, high carbonation, vanilla like Belgian yeast flavor, sweetish taste with a hint of hoppy bitterness, medium sweet finish. Very smooth and well hidden alcohol content.

It pours amber in color with a slightly off white head. The aromas present are raisins, plums, noticeable alcohol, bread, pepper, and spices. The tastes are high on the sweet flavors of fruit and the malts. The fruits are more plums than raisins, bread, spices, a hint of caramel, and alcohol. There is significant alcohol warming, but not enough to create a burn. it has a heavy feel to it and is somewhat dry.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes (08/01/2015). A very good approximation / interpretation of traditional Belgian Quads. The malt and hop bills are intentionally very simple, resulting in a not quite complex but still very impressive beer. Aromas of stone fruits and yeast are followed by a more of the same in the taste. Great dark reddish brown color. Reminiscent of some of the uber-rare Trappist XII’s, but at a much better price point.

25.4oz bottle into a Krombacher Pils glass. Pours a bronzed orange Amber with thick Amber highlights. Large white head when poured full throttle. Simmers to a thin layered head, loose lacing lingers. Aroma of boozy orange, gin, chamomile, grass, yeast, floral tones, more booze. Taste of tart ripe orange peel, booze, gin, nectar, bread, glazed rum nuggets, saison spices, more booze. A slow relaxing sipper on solo excursion four or five, liquid luxury indeed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hmm, almost like a "plain" quad, whatever that is. Pours a very pretty hazy copper with nice white top. Head doesn’t retain like the typical quad though. Aromas are fairly simple - malt, yeast ester, a touch of saison. Flavors are similar with some of the alcohol coming through, very sweet in a malty-syrupy way mid sip, leaving a bit of a bite at the finish. Fairly clean despite the sweet and alcohol. Not bad, but I was pretty excited given the low price and high reviews.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark gold/ amber color with a thick head and lacing on glass. Aroma of dark fruit and maybe a little booziness. Taste in order, spice booze, dark fruit. Overall a high octane quad that’s ok but there is plenty better.
