3.55/5 rDev -12.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A - Deeper tawny, tangerine color with an average sized, foamy, off-white head. Average retention with just a thin layer of lace.
S - Sweet caramel and pale malt along with candi sugar sweetness. Plenty of sweet and tart golden fruit with a touch of a juicy aspect. Apricot, some apple, and touches of tropical fruit.
T - Similar to the nose. Sweet tangerine, orange, apricot, tropical fruit, and hints of sweet, ripe cherry. Sweet caramel and pale malt along with candi sugar. Some Belgian yeast as well. Alcohol is definitely present along with plenty of spice.
M - Medium body with average carbonation (maybe slightly above). Fairly smooth and warming.
D - Not too drinkable. Alcohol is a little hot and the flavors are a little off. Strong spice and a little on the sweet side for it to be too drinkable.
Notes: Strange beer and not really what I was expecting from a Quad. Seemed a bit more like a malty Tripel. Overall I wasn't a big fan, but it wasn't a bad beer. Probably won't get it again, as there are a number of Quads (and Tripels for that matter) I like better for the same price.

A: loose foam from start to finish....reddish-brown, relatively clear till a few yeasts slipped in....
S: clean ,vodka-like booze... some light, raisin-y fruit.... mellow yet full floral nuance... overall, nice but somewhat subdued
T: super-smooth, velvety-flowery, cookie-ish malt.... brown sugar, granola, background raisin.... superbly mellow and balanced - flavors don't explode, but excellent, nonetheless
M: ethanol-attenuated medium-light body.... subtle, spongy foam wash with each sip... easy-drinking - airy and light around a compact, satiny flow.... fairly restrained swell of boozy warmth midway through each sip
O: one that doesn't bombard the senses with flavor.... gotta let it sit for awhile for it to open up.... even then, dry and quite mellow... nice, if you're digging the subtleties and simply want to quell the swelling in your brain
