7/IX/17 - 75cl bottle from Hopduvel (Gent), shared @ home with Amy - BB: VIII/2018 (2017-1478) nathanvc (884) - Brugge, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2017
Clear deep orange to red amber beer, big solid creamy yellow to orange head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweetish, some banana, caramel, pretty yeasty, some dried fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very malty, honey, bit sugary, lots of dried fruits, banana, alcohol, slightly oxidized. Aftertaste: some marzipan, more oxidation, caramel, malty, alcohol, ripe banana. Probably the best OostEke beer until now! Hope they do more of this stuff...

Hazy orange/brown with a small, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, berries, cherries, wood, vanilla and liquor. It tastes medium fruity sweet and light hoppy bitter; dry, 'woody' finish. Medium body, creamy texture, soft to fizzy carbonation. Balanced & tasty.
01/10/2017 @home - 75cl bottle from a trade with tderoeck.
Hazy brown with small creamy egg white head. Nose is sweet malts, fruits, caramel, some wood. Creamy texture. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, some milk chocolate, I suppose some Banyuls too because I recognized some features of the Cuvée de Mortagne Banyuls From Alvinne. This one is nice too but not that great like the Mortagne. Alengrin (5996) - BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2017 Quadrum aged on Banyuls barrels, from a 75 cl bottle shared by tderoeck. Moussy, egg-white, loosely structured and gradually opening, but sufficiently edge-retaining head, hazy bronze brown robe with warm copper hue. Aroma of caramel, sweet dessert wine which I suppose represents the Banyuls, stewed plums, vanilla-like oak, brown sugar, cloves, baker's yeast, brownies, straw, pear, raspberry. Sweet onset, banana and ripe peach, fig- and plum-like soft sourish notes, softish carbo, smooth mouthfeel, bit fluffy, caramelly and bready malt body; finish adds a yeasty and phenolic touch alongside warming alcohol (more brandy-like than Banyuls-like actually), some wet wood undertones and a herbal hop touch, but the breadiness lingers the longest. Classic Belgian strong brown with a twist, very classically quad-like in its make-up, warming, bready and sweet. Works fine for me.

Light brown colour. Aroma and flavour are sweet and have loads of sweet Bourbon. Really deep and flavoursome. 77ships (11601) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2017
Thank you for sharing RB Crew! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ GBF 2017. Orange amber, tanned head. This one is a really weird beer, nose is massively sweet oak, vanilla, sweet all sugar wine & candy oak mixing with a base of soap & spoiled fruit. Taste is same, spoiled fruit, soap mixed with bafflingly sweet boozy vanilla candy oak. Body is soap with the sweetness. Barrel total clashes & never blend with a poor base beer. Nope. kraddel (9422) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2016
Thnx to Rutger. Pours dark, unclear blonde. Small white head. smell is bit malty, not really intense. taste is rather sharp, bit bitter, some oak, some wine. rather boozy. mouthfeel is on the thin side. OK carbo. nutjes (1375) - Zwevegem, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2016
