COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wood aged Pale Quadruppel. Imagine a blend of Scaldis and Cantillon Pure Kriek. Forget it, there is nothing like it (yet). Vlad is shocking to your sour beer senses and taste buds, which do not understand that such a balanced delicate sour beer can be so drinkable and appeal to so many people while being extreme. But dont forget, it will still open a can of 10.6% whoop-ass on your ass after all the pomp & circumstance of what an amazing beer it is subsides.

2010 bottle w/ awesome CouchSurf host. Aroma is amazingly dry, honey, fruits. Flavor is the same. Good lacing, murky as hell copper color, visible sentiment. Alcohol burn on the start, not the finish, which is weird... Amazingly complex. Lovely!!!

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! A: Hazy and orange in color with an eighth inch of head that leaves some good lacing on the glass. S: Sour, funk, citrus, apples, fruit, alcohol. T: Really tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. The flavor is tannic, with a nice oak barrel presence. The beer is pleasantly sour, which thrills me, and has a nice fruit component. The bourbon aspect is there, but not overwhelming. Overall, a seriously delicious brew. M: Very smooth feel with moderately low carbonation. D: An overall awesome beer. I definitely want some more of this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-20-2010

2010 rate. really enjoyed this one. Tart balanced sour, fruity notes balanced between citrus and some dark (quad-like fruits). Light body, easy drinker.

Bouteille de 750 ml, lors dune dgustation. Armes trs boiss et lactiques, belle prsence fruite et vineuse. Robe orange et trouble, effervescence moyenne et trs peu de mousse. En bouche, on retrouve le ct lactique typique des bires de Cascade, mais le tout demeure relativement en retenue. Belle prsence vineuse et boise. On retrouve galement des notes fruites rappelant la pche. Finale lactique et lgrement sucre. Lalcool demeure trs bien dissimul. Trs bon !

Pour is very low carbonation and a brown slightly murky appearance. Aroma is great with grapes, plums, vanilla, light funkyness, and rich cherries. Taste is medium tart with little funk and a very interesting sweetness that is not cloying or unwelcomed. Good stuff again.

This one has been sitting around much to long, tonight it must be drunk. The cork broke and I had to resort to the corkscrew, the cork was really dry. Pours a deep amber bordering on copper with a small tightly bubbled white head that shows moderate retention. Smells of tart and lactic as soon as I wrangle the stopper out of the bottle. Tart cherries, lemon, oak, vanilla, brown sugar, lots of wonderful aromas waft out of my glass. Taste is tart with a hint of sugary sweetness. Up front I get a hint of brown sugary type sweetness followed by a heaping helping of tartness. Lemons and tart cherries with a hint of acid followed by some vanilla and oak and maybe a hint of ash in the finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart kind of mouthfeel. Wow this is a beautiful beer! Its bigger in body than most American sours, but its base is also a Quad. I really enjoyed this, I wish I had more.

pours a copper transparent color with tight white head. The nose is lightly vegital and medicinal with a strong fruit and barrel component. The flavor is the same with a light bitterness and a lighter body and strong carbonation.

2009 out of the bottle. Pours a deep orange with with white head. Nice sour aroma with hint of white peach. Sour taste with well structured backbone. Astringent finish.
