COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So simple in its creation, so magnificent in its maturity, this wonderful ale begins with Nature's most humble offerings, water, malted grains and hops. Our soulful yeast breathes life and depth into each brew. The steady hand of time orchestrates this alchemy into the splendid ale before you. Cheers!

Klar bärnstens färgad med ett orange skum. Doft: Malt, jäst, växthus, russin, torkad papaya. Smak: Samma som doft + kryddor. Mycket bättre smak än doft.

SamTheBarrel (317) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2013
750 ml bottle, pours hazy chestnut colored, with a small creamy beige head that quickly dissipated and left a fine sticky lacing. Aroma of apricots, raisins, orange and dark maple syrup. Taste of apricots, raisins, maple syrup, ripe Nashi pears, butterscotch and a hint of alcohol. The alcohol becomes more noticeable as the beer warms up. Heavy sweetness with some bitterness. Carbonation is flat, texture is thick and sticky. Despite the marketing this beer is quite different to a Belgian strong ale, an interesting enjoyable brew nonetheless.

gyllenbock (4088) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget Passagen. Clear orange with a small white head. Sweet aroma and taste of malt, dried fruit, some toffee and light spices. Rather thick mouthfeel and with warming alcohol in the finish. An ok beer.

SaintMatty (4742) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
750ml Bottle - Amber in colour. Sultanas, dried apricot and toffee in the aroma. Malty, sweet and syrupy taste with treacle, sultanas and peace detected. Disappointing.

FROM NOTES: July 1, ’12 A: Very spicy and inviting on the nose. Grass notes with lemon note lurking around, and some Belgian funk. A: Poured a slightly hazy, honey color, with about a 1" finger foamy, almond-colored head that retained itself slightly. T: The taste is much like the aroma. It has peaches, lemons, caramel, apples, pepper, yeast, and a lot of alcohol heat. Has a very sweet, almost cloying flavor to it. I would like the taste better if the alcohol heat was toned down. Still pretty good though. P: Very sweet, almost like a dessert. The lacing on the glass and palate (sugar) were both mild-substantial. O: I won’t be drinking 4 of these in a row, but it’s not made for that. While this isn’t the best Quad I’ve ever had, it’s no where near the worst either. All things considered, this is a fine offering from Victory.

boxofrane (1878) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2013
2010 Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear orange with a small white head. The aroma has some fruity esters, yeast, raisin. The taste is sweet grape and a bit of dark fruit.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a nice dark amber color with a short lived, light tan head. The nose is boozy with a lot of pear and malt sweetness. Sweet and hot on the palate. Almost medicinal with lots of apple brandy, pear, and butterscotch notes. On the sweet side and full bodied with a hot finish. A bit brash and in your face alcohol wise. A little time might help this one.

monk191 (722) - California, USA - SEP 30, 2013
A very nice, if a little boozy, tripel. Pours a beautiful red with visible sediment. Smells like apples and cherries. Tastes has a very malty start, with more apples and cherries, and some maple syrup. A quite boozy finish. Maybe a little too boozy, but good. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
