look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I picked this up at the newest Giant Market & Craft beer cafe in Harrisburg on Linglestown Rd. Corked & caged bottle into a cervoise chilled.

The color is deep amber with light cream cap w/ slight chill haze and goo lace/head retention. The smell is very appealing to me with abundance of malt sweetness in the aroma with mild floral hop note and yeast phenolic with mild bready element and slightly honey like accent. The feel is very good with high carbonation level and strong full body with malt heft and drying alcohol on the palate with crisp finish that has a lingering spice texture.

The Quad tastes like some toasted malt is present with the yeast adding a clove accent with mild honeylike tinge and floral hop element adding to the complexity with subtle alcohol in the taste and the strength is not all that apparent with malt providing the majority of the flavor with a nice effervescent yeast that leads to a dry mineral tinged finish. A great Belgian and originator of the Quad style I have been enjoying this for over a decade I am happy to drink this on occasion and it is very drinkable for the style.

330ml bottle. Tasting Chalice glass. Bright brownish amber color, deep amber tints to the light. Tan head is close & shows discrete retention, Intense caramel, alcohol, cane sugar, spiced, herbal & fenolic aromas. Kind sweet, slight toasted malty upfront. Toffee, biscuit flavors as well & involving heat. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous & velvety mouthfeel. Peppery & funny palate. Low bitterness, fruit, dried nut & subtle wood notes are shown in the middle & linger into a long sweet finish. Ripe apricot, baked pear & apple flavors followed by memories of nutmeg liquor on the aftertaste. Flavorful, delightful & pleasant drinkability.
