Slightly hazy amber. Sweet, caramel aroma. Quite high carbonation with a slightly burned, fruity sweet taste. Well balanced with bitterness at the end. One of the best quads.

Evolutionary (501) - Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle from Andersons. Nose is plum and smoky dark esters. Super smooth and sweeter side of a quad. Weak carbonation. Complex with malts and dark sugars and bitterness hidden. Smooth and a solid beer. Would do again. Top 5 quads.

Belle couleur ambrée avec une fine mousse. Goût de levure. Agréable en bouche sucrée et amertume légère. Quasi parfaite.

theprof (947) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle. Aroma fruity but raisins dates not fresh. An alcoholic pungency. Pours cloudy amber with some white bubbly lace. Taste is caramelized malts, vanilla sugars and dark fruits. Alongside this is a full bodied presence on the palate that coats the tongue and quite possibly blurs the vision. Like a brandy after a fine meal, this finishes everything. For that reason alone I am relieved not all beer is like this but I still wish more could be.

Jabic (588) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Ar: Plums, figs, and slight smoky earthiness; candied orange and moderately toasted malts; herbal, slightly sweet hops. Ap: Amber and hazy; medium slightly off-white head with moderate-low retention, leaving a ring of mostly fine bubbles, a few suds, and a thin haze of foam. T: Toasted malt, peach, and banana, with a moderate-low sweetness; warm, very clean alcohol; prominent banana and peach skins mid-palate, with a low bitterness and a slightly herbal hop character; fruity tannins, relatively smooth, linger on the finish with underripe peach and orange peel. P: Medium-full body with very high, refined carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: Very good quad; lots of fruit, spice, and clean alcohol flavor; quite drinkable even though it has a ton of flavor and substance; strong and bold while never becoming cloying or overbearing.

smroush (281) - Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Aromas are complex with a lot of variety, though all of the aromas are subdued - bread, caramel, dried fruit, spices (hard to pin down but the official description of banana, vanilla and almond seems like a reasonable attempt). Color is a slightly cloudy amber with a very large off-white head. Taste is somewhat sweet with a quite mild bitterness. Body is medium; texture is oily/creamy; finish is long, fruity, malty and spicy. Overall an excellent beer - subtle but complex and interesting.

3.8
Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2017
330ml bottle. Clear, copper-ish, dark amber to brown colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, malty and estery fruity aroma, notes of cherry, banana, apricot, marzipan, baked apple, vanilla. Taste is sweet malty, fruity, notes of banana, cherry, apricot, some marzipan, vanilla, baked red apple, dry hoppy counterweight with hints of apple parings; alcohol is hidden under the fruitiness but not inhibited to unfold efficacy. Smooth, soft, silky and slightly sticky palate, soft and fine carbonation.
