COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Xbeeriments version af en Quadrupel. Målet har været at skabe en quad med kompleksitet og dybde, som samtidigt er tørrere og mindre tung, end quadrupler normalt er. Brygget af tysk malt, belgisk gær og kandis, engelsk humle, dansk sukker og tilsat en lille mængde fransk hindbærsirup for at give øllet en kølig, frisk frugtig note. OG 1092 FG 1008.

English: The Xbeeriment version of a Quadrupel. The aim has been to create a quad with complexity and depth but in a drier and less heavy style than quads normally are. Made of German malt, Belgian yeast and candy sugar, English hops, Danish Sugar and finally a bit of French raspberry syrup to add cool, fruity and fresh notes to the brew. OG 1092 FG 1008.

Very hazy dark red-amber beer. Malty nose. Zero carbonation. Slightly dry palate. Fairly rich malt with a little toffee. A little bit of fruit coming through towards the end and just a little aniseed alcohol in the aftertaste. Flat and disappointing.

50 cl bottle. Rated on 02.02.2010
Dark brown with some yeast particles. Aroma has vegetables and berries typical to Danish ales. Also some grapefruit juice. Richness with raisins typical to quadrupels is present. Flavour has alcohol, some peaches, fruit flesh, berries and caramel malt. All those will be run over by alcohol towards the finish. Drinkable.

Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2012
(Draught) Pours amber to brown. The aroma holds fruits, berries and caramel/toffee-like malt up front with undertones of earth, cherries and candi sugar. Light floral. The flavour is fruity and berry-like with a fat malty backdrop of caramel and toffee. The mouthfeel is fat and soft. Bit sugary and complex aftertaste. Medium to full bodied.

POLK (2006) - Hørning, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2012
A slight honey taste at first, but as a little old flavor. Smells too old. Was drunk before BB date.

Rasmus40 (10577) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2011
Hazy orange with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, fruity, yeasty, spicy and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet. Sweet finish with warming alcohol. Too sweet and too much alcohol. 170310

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2010
Bottled. Pours out in a cloudy reddish brown colour with a small bubbly off-white head. Rich, deep and well-rounded aroma of cherry-skins, toasted malts, milky chocolate, almonds, black currant and mild honey. Full-bodied with notes of honey, black currant, toasted malts, mild spices and brown sugar. Long rounded and warming aftertaste of milky chocolate, dried cherries and burnt sugar. Tasty!

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
Pours a deep coppery body dressed in floaties and crowned with an off-white medium head. Smell is caramel, syrup and complex candy sugary notes. Taste has a sweetness profile strangely reminding me of my childhood’s "bruspulver" (soda pop fizzy powder), just without the whole chemical thing. Cherries, candy sugar and malt extract also appear throughout the palate. Regardless, this quad turns out to be not quite as complex and exiting as the Belgian "royal beers" it seeks to emulate. Ok, but not great.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2010
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a cloudy amber with beige head. Aroma of fruit, nice citrus, light caramel and a bit of brown sugar. Flavor is very much the same with an added sweetness and spice. Mouth feel is medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty brew!

thirdeye11 (5479) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2010
(.5L bottle BB 2010 thanks to bu11zeye) murky brown with creamy head. Nose of raisin, cream, alcohol. Taste of metal, raisin, bread, with a creamy finish and a thin-medium body.
