Poured from tap into goblet, red gold, hazy, no sediment. Aroma unripened peach, some cherry. Tastes fruity, sweet, bready but balanced with alcohol and a little tartness. Nice light mouthfeel, good carbonation without being overly fizzy. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2015 vintage poured from bottle into a chalice glass Appearance The beer pours a deep orange-copper color with a thick off white head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, very slowly fading over time to leave a bit of spider web lace on the sides of the chalice. Smell The aroma is of a dark fruit smell of cherry, plum, and raisin along with a whole lot of a caramel and molasses sugar smell. Along with these smells comes some great aromas of a spicy smell with the spice being a mix of clove and coriander and with some yeast bringing some banana and a little bit of grass along with it. Other aromas of vanilla and some lighter fruits of apple and pear are also there as well and mix with the rest and a bit of oakiness and booziness to produce a fruity and warming sorta wine like smell overall. Taste The taste begins with a with a nice fruity taste mainly of lighter fruits with a good deal of apple, pear, and peach, but containing some darker fruit flavors of plum and cherry as well. There are nice hints of vanilla and caramel sweetness which persist and complement the fruity tastes very well. These tastes remain throughout the brew, increasing in the middle of the taste and fading just ever so slightly at the end. Toward the middle of the taste some light yeasty and spice flavors of clove and coriander as well as a little bit of banana develop on the tongue. An oaky French wine taste develops on the tongue as the flavors progress further, matching the fruity and spice flavors very nicely. In the end, the booziness increases a bit and with the nice fruity and wine like characteristics of the brew, it leaves one with a sweeter and crisp flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is slightly light for a quad of 10.8 % with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The thin body was fantastic for the fruity and wine like characteristics of the brew with the higher carbonation giving a nice effervescent feel. Overall very well done. Overall - This was a very enjoyable brew. I am not sure I would consider it a quad, as its flavor (at least to me) was a bit more on the triple side of things with some hints of quad mixed within. Any which way you slice it however, this was a very nice brew and a very dangerously easy drinking brew overall.

Fatehunter (2341) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Pours a finger of head that quickly disappeared on a hazy straw body. The aroma is lots of ripe fruit: plum, apricot and spices. The taste is malt background with lots of fruit sweetness to the end. The texture is softer. Its really nice and fruity.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Draft. Poured lighter orange with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up tart vinous notes and pomegranate over a fruit and light bready base.. some peppery warmth amplified it. The flavor found similar, picking up a little honey at the core.. tart around with vinous notes, oak, black pepper, cloves, and a touch of whiskey around.. belly-warming finish with a hefty dose of barrel and tasty fruits. Heavier-bodied and warm on the palate, with nice tartness cutting through.. good balance.
