3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at Crossroads Spirits. Pours a hazy copper color with about a fingers worth of frothy beige head. Aromas of light dark fruits, candied sugar, turpentine, and lots of booze. Taste mimics the nose with lots of booze, caramel, candied sugar, and dark fruit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Vintage 2009. Hazy amber with a thin white crown. Aroma is boozy and fruit with plenty of yeast, citrus and soapy notes. Taste the Belgian yeast up front with a copious amount of fruit and some fruity esters as well. A tad boozy and slippery but overall not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate cookie and nutty for the malt, cooked orange for the hops, dough and broth for the yeast, with hints of raisin, toffee, allspice and cinnamon. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with some slippery lacing and diminishes to a small ring. Color is clear medium red. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation. and a lightly alcoholic finish. Nice balance in both aroma and flavor in this tasty Quad.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a clear brown with little head. Decent fig aromas, but the taste is not like any Belgian quad I have had before and very disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle (11.8% ABV per bottle) - pours deep amber with little beige head. Nose is earthy, fruity, and nutmeg. very sweet and boozy. I’d liken this to an imperial herb/spice/vegetable brew. Definitely festive, but not what I would call a quad.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured darkish copper, slight head, aromas of sweet fruit, bananas, and Clive, tastes the same, very sweet. Crisp finish, not bitter at all. This one sneaks up on you in a good way, definitely a sipper.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from November 2012. Pour is a slightly hazy rust color with barely any head or lacing. Smell is inviting, banana, clove, plum, raisin, molasses, spice and yeast. Virtually no alcohol on the nose. Taste is complex, you get the caramel and plum along with notes of banana and clove, very sweet. Takes on some sherry characteristics and has a warm boozy feel throughout. Mouthfeel is dense, carbonation a bit low for me. Overall some nice flavors, cant tell if it changed much being in the cellar for 9 months. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
