2012 - 07 - 19 330ml bottle. orange golden colour. medium, white, firm head. bit citric, light smokey aroma. bit bitter, light sour taste. lelisboa (62) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2012
Pale amber (but hazy orange) poured with 2 fingers of white read into a goblet glass. Smells fruity malt, orange, mellow, light hops and yeast. Tastes orange, grapefruit, alcohol. Medium high carbonate, medium body. That is what disappointed me a bit. I expected a different quadruppel but it came out a golden strong ale or a trippel.... thod (7) - Lille, FRANCE - JUN 21, 2012 does not count

33 cl. bottle @ home. Hazy golden with a dense white head. Fruity, yeasty ’tripel’ smell. Decent enough but a bit one dimensional. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle from Arden Wines. Slightly veiled gold with a generous, subsiding white foam. Attractive, citrusy aroma with suggestions of sherbet lemons, gooseberry, pineapple, green herb (parsley) and grassy hop. Good clean flavour with soapy hop streaks, perfumed coriander, pear and lemon and lime jelly notes. Vanilla and biscuity pale malt in the aftertaste. Duvel-like, minus some effervescence, and hugely drinkable. Pretty good. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 22, 2012

May 201: Brown 33cl bottle, best before 12-2012, poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru badged stemmed tulip glass.
I left a few centimeters of beer in the bottle to ensure I got the true colours and tastes before pouring the reminder into my glass once I’d consummed the first pour.
Pale amber in colour, wispy white covering on top, no real head because of my cautious initial pour. I got a better covering when I emptied the sediment remains and the rest of the bottle into my glass later.
Yeasty aroma, some spices appear to be in there too. An apple feel also arrives as the beer settles in the glass.
The mouthfeel is spritzy and sharp, the taste an alcoholic blend of citrusy hops, sweet, yet light molasses and mixed herbs. Another sweet ingrediant appears as the beer warms, which begins to turn the beer from interesting to unbalanced.
I can’t claim to be an expert on quads, but this isn’t my idea of this style, pleasant enough but lacks body and depth for the alcohol content. I prefer the sweeter beers to the extra dry hoppy ones, but this is just too much for me in the sweet stakes. Having said that, once I’d poured the sediment and remainer of the beer into my glass it wasn’t such a sweet drink anymore: so perhaps the whole bottle should have gone in from the start.
