4.03/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a snifter.

Appearance. Hazy copper red in color. Pours with a nice finger and a half of head which quickly reduces down to a thick layer on top of the brew. This is retained well. Some alcohol feet present, but not retained well.

Smell. Very sweet, with an emphasis on fruitiness. Smells reminiscent of maraschino cherries and grape jelly. Also somewhat of a caramely sweetness behind this.

Taste. Quite tart up front, with a surprising bitterness that builds for a short time. This bitterness is then accompanied by a dry figgie sweetness. The bitterness is balanced by this but still present throughout. There is a significant alcohol presence that builds throughout the experience that contributes to a dry alcohol burned finish.

Mouthfeel. For me a near perfect mouthfeel. Medium body with plenty of almost effervescent carbonation. Drinkable but full flavored.

Quite a different quadruple. Maintains the complexity that you would expect, but differs from the trappist examples. The bitterness helps with this. It is not a bitterness that you associate with hops but one that goes perfect with the dry fruity flavors of the beer. Very enjoyable indeed.

3.94/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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
