3.7/5 rDev -11.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from the bottle with a 08-2014 date into a chalice.
The pour produces a fizzy white head that dissipates rather quickly. It is amber colored. Lots of little bubbles work their way up through the beer. While drinking there are just splotches of white on top and no lacing is left contrary to some reviews I noticed.
In the nose I am getting a sweet malty smell.
The sweet malts are also tasted. There is a bit of an alcohol presence and at 10% you wold think so, but it is not all that prevalent making it an easy drink. If only the flavors were more exciting. It is pretty well carbonated and smooth which feels good on the tongue. The little dryness works great.
As far as quads go it definitely doesn't make the list of favs which is disappointing. I was looking forward to it being a Trappist and all. Good, but not great.

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga
a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head
s: huge banana and vanilla up front, great stuff. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present
t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish
m: medium body, medium carbonation
o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength
Serving type: on-tap

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
