COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch 24 presents itself with the normal amber brown color of the Quadrupel and has a relatively fragile head. In the enter cherries do smell right away and the equation on with lots of sweet ripe fruit. Besides cherries hints of mango, banana and strawberry come upwards. Also the smells of almond and vanilla are recognizable as that of alcohol, caramelmout and oak wood. The palate is full to even bombastic, warming and challenging and is dominated by cherry. Then come the flavors of vanilla and caramel-sweet and ends in a dry tannin bitter alcoholic aftertaste. The ’cherry-touch’ fills the Quadrupel-taste fine, making clear this batch is clearly different from all previous 23 batches. This particular components make batch 24 to a must for the enthusiast. Its fine bouquet is best savoured when this batch is served at a temperature of 16-18 °C (61 – 64.5 °F). BATCH 24 was distributed as follows: Used barrels Kirsch-schnapps 85% New Oak Medium Toast 10% Acacia wood 5%

Barwa bursztynowa. Piana niska, drobno pęcherzykowata. W aromacie beczka dębowa, ciemne owoce, karmel, delikatna wanilia. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Piwo gładkie i pełne. Alkohol dobrze ułożony.

Bottle - Raisin, cherry, oak and some dark fruits. Clearish copper with a small beige head. Lots d plum, prune and dark fruit but I don’t really get a significant cherry note. Still a great and rich beer though.

Corked bottle. Dark amber color. Malt, white wine and a hint of oak in the aroma. Malty sweet vinous flavor with vanilla and white wine. Kirsch-schnaps? Didn’t taste any. A slight tartness. Very nice.

basjansen14 (426) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2016
Amber kleurig bier met een aroma van zoete kersen, banaan en karamel. In de smaak proef je zoete kersen, banaan, karamel, vanille en uiteraard eikenhout. Alcohol proef je bijna niet, daar is La Trappe altijd erg goed in. In de afdronk komt de vanille vooral opspelen samen met het eikenhout.
