Note: after hoarding the oldest of these beers for over 5 years, I decided to crack down on them, before they disintegrate.
Clear reddish brown beer, almost no head, some big irregular beige bubbles. Aroma: lots of vanilla, bit oxidized, fruity touch. MF: soft to no carbon, medium body. Taste: very oxidized, spicy, some cinnamon, little sweet, some nutmeg. Aftertaste: sweet, caramel, some chocolate, oxidized, bit dusty, banana, bit sugary.

375 ml bottle @ Kulminator // split between me & Man-ki// tasted along with batches # 3 & # 4 // from a tiny La Trappe tasting glass // 2011 Vintage // touch darker ruby amber than nr. 3 & 4, clear, head is interesting enough snow white as opposed to #3, #4 & Quercus #2 // sweet on the nose syrupy, hint of liquorish, plenty of dark fruits in this one, touch bitter // sweet syrupy, dark fruits going more towards dry & some canned ones as well, winter spices in the finish, toffee, vanilla, small touch wood, touch bitterness in the finish, that one is new, the wine?, otherwise not picking up distinct white wine or at least not what I would expect white wine to do // smooth, touch syrupy, carb. going closer to soft, out of the 3 prefered #3 & #4 but this is nice as well, grown accustomed to these

jmgreenuk (8677) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 3, 2014
Tap at the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a dark amber with a thin white broken head. The aroma is caramel, vinous oak. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a smooth creamy toffee caramel vinous palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. A super beer. One of the best La Trappe Quads Ive had.

Erzengel (8350) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2016
Mild woody, red fruits and plums. Sweetish hints, not too deep. Wood, round, fruity and malt. Nice but not the best batch due to a bit too less depth. The white wine is (sadly) not there for me.

The_Osprey (7623) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle share at Leightons, thanks to Paul. Four years old at this stage. Murky dirty brown, very little head, no lacing. Aroma is strawberry jam, some harsh chemical / alcohol, touch of sherry, grape juice. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sherry, sweet toffee, some alcohol coming through, no real bitterness. Doesnt have the aggressive woodiness that I like in the new vintages, and has gone a bit gloopy with age. Still, a nice sipper.

caesar (6940) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2011
Tap @ Beer Temple. Clear copper color, medium off-white head. Aroma of mostly fruity grapes from the white wine with a nice oaky hint on a background of biscuity and toasty malts of the base beer. Usually the taste of a quadrupel is quite sweet, but the sweetsour and dry fruityness of the white wine blends quite nicely with it. It might be a bit too much of the white wine in the way that it overpowers and overtakes the base beer, but overall I think its a very nice experiment. Definitely worth the try, especially if youre into decent white wine.

Borresteijn (6713) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2011
On tap at Beer Temple. Muddy dark amber, off white head. Aroma of oak, raisins, sweet malts, caramel, sweet fruits, alcohol, raspberry candy. Flavour is very sweet, pear, raspberry, raisin, light white wine, malts, loads of alcohol, some woody notes, light bitter finish. Medium bodied. Too sweet and one-dimensional imo.
