Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Plovmand. Pours golden with a slight haze and a tiny off-white head. Blueberry aroma - strange. Solid body, sweet fruit and sweet malts. A little yeast. Warming alcohol. Doesn’t really have much Quad character at all. 270411 KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark amber/orange with a small fizzy white head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of light grain malts, a mild citrus hop and a sweet belgian yeast with notes of banana, apricot, corriander, maple syrup and had a mild alcohol tinge. It tasted moderatley sweet with hints of banana, citrus and corriander from the begining and stayed pretty much throughout with the finish having just a little sourness to it. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and syrupy and creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall all it was a good tasting brew that did a great job of concealing the high ABV, although it was just a little sweet for my taste. Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2012 On tap @ Cigar City. The body was a nice and hazy golden with a bone-white head. Aromas were mellow and yeasty, with a thick and pleasant fruity scent as well. The taste was quite refreshing for a 10% (well-hidden) brew. Lots of delicate and dry citrus notes in this one, and malt backbone is bittersweet, like a fine honey. Not that bad, and very session-able. DocLock (11047) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy orangy copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is rock sugar, fruit, citrus, mango, hops, black peppery spice. Tastes a bit sweet, with rock syrupy pale malt, apricotty fruit, hops, spice, and florals. This one is very rich, very good, although ti gets a teeny biy hot and cloying late. A true diamond in the rough. Suttree (6504) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2011
This is a quad? really? I would not’ve guessed. Gold, with a decent sized white head. Very sweet aroma - Like orange juice and vodka or something like that. Lots of fruity flavors - orange, banana, pineapple, and a boozy finish.

12 ounce bottle thanks to David. Pours a quite clear orange hue with a medium white head. A pretty thick and creamy head. The aroma is sweet fruity malts, alcohol heat. The flavor is nice; tangerines, spices, zesty, some dryness, light heat, a somewhat bitter finish but overwhelmed by loads of sweetness. Nice. randy1301 (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2011

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 Bottle, Tapping the Vine. Finally got this one after a friend recommended it. Nose is slightly yeasty with heavy hits of citrus and spice. Nice golden/redish amber color. Flavor is exquisite with cinnamon spice, citrus and grape/plum accents with a lingering banana sweetness that carries this beer off with a nice finish. Sweet and enjoyable. It has a belgian flavor but a uniqueness all its own. Definitely recommended. dchmela (3084) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
From the 12oz bottle. Deep amber pour with a thick off white head. Citrus peel, coriander and a touch of maple in the aroma. Lots of Belgian character in the taste with heavy emphasis on the spices. Very easy to drink for the abv and good on a warm winter day. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2011
bottle. pours a brilliant orange with a 1/4" white head. yeast / light fruit / candy nose. medium body with some tropical fruit and way too much sugar... this is sweet as hell. light fruits on the finish with some light Belgian yeast qualities and more sugar. this is far from a Quad...
