Appearance: Pours a murky deep brown (borderline black). An inch or so of off-white, foamy head lasts a good while, so long in fact that it was a bit annoying. The head is quite dense and frothy.
Aroma: Not very aromatic due to the massive, thick head. With some swirling and settling I caught a little bit of the dark fruit notes. Smells a bit like dry champagne to me, maybe a touch of alcohol.
Taste: What a complex beer we have here! First hit with dark fruit flavors, reminded me of red wine so I thought maybe grapes, currants, cherries or plums. I get a slight taste of some malts in there but the carbonation really brings out the fruit above all else. Not much bitterness if any. Aftertaste dominated by a dry alcoholic taste.
Palate: Good effervescence makes for a crisp, dry finish but overall the beer goes down smooth and is perfectly balanced in the mouth.
Overall: Definitely a new favorite, excellent Belgian ale in every way. The interesting esters and hints of malt combined with the ability to hide an ABV of 10% make this a deceptively drinkable brew. By all means grab a bottle and find out for yourself, a glass or two later and you’ll be damn satisfied- and DRUNK!
B-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Full of flavor and notes of dark fruit Beamer (45) - - JUN 21, 2017
Lekkere donkere quadripel, zoet en fruitig met een licht zure afdronk, zeker niet bitter. Romig en mooi gebalanceerd.

Looks about dark brown with thick a big creamy head. Aroma is a little boozy, but also gives out dark malts and fruitiness. What a great flavor profile, really complex and well balanced. Dark crystal malts combined with spicy-fruity notes all the way to the finish. Ends quite dry which allows some hops to join in. Almost no alcohol present in taste. Full bodied. Very rich in flavors and absolutely flawless. Perfect! Brettsky06 (415) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 18, 2017

Dark, with red reflexes. Molasses, Caramel, lum, malts, yeast, alcohol, herbs. Semi sweet, semi bitter. full body, fizzy. harrylt (13) - - JUN 11, 2017
Long persistent creamy head
Ruby amber color not very clear
Smell deep grains, and even like wine
Tast Smooth and heavy, heat raising up from throat bcz of the 10 degree alcohal
Really taste like japanese Sake, with hint of soy sauce. A bit of sweetness. Sour bcz of the highly fermentation.
When exhale, get the great falor of ripe grain after sun burn.
HIGHLY SUGGEST! EXHALE AS MUCH AS U CAN! TO FEEL THE RIPE GRAIN FLAVOR!

Brązowe. Piana bardzo wysoka, szybko opada, ale zostawia obwolutę na wokół szkła. W aromacie chleb, biszkopty, nuty figowe, miodowe, delikatnie winne. W smaku umiarkowanie słodkie, dosyć biszkoptowe, chlebowe. Alkohol delikatnie wyczuwalny. Goryczka praktycznie nie występuje. Wysycenie średnie. Naprawdę fajne. dogbomb (1215) - ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle. Dark chocolate brown with a thin floating cream head. Nose is toffee, caramel, cake, bread, raisins. Taste is initially mooted, but then, give it time... Dark fruits, raisins, caramels, cinder toffee, dense bread. Sip sip sip and enjoy. Play with it across the taste buds. No alcohol burn. Just complex flavours playing on the tongue. Yeah. I like this.
