My bottle looks nothing like the picture, but the bottle says Brouwerij De Koningshoeven BV (from the netherlands, so this must be it). None-the-less...poured from a 11.2oz bottle into a Chimay chalice.
A - Poured a deep foggy amber purple-ish brown with a frothy 1 finger head and lively carbonation.
S - Smell jumps from the glass from across the room. Mostly plums and grapes with bubble gum and alcohol in the background.
T - Delicious. All the usual suspects. More sweet than I'm used to. Plums and darker fruits with banana and candied sugar and bubble gum. Pretty complex, but awesomely even and balanced.
M - Unbelievably smooth. Thick and rich and mellow at the same time with a tingly after vibe from the alcohol.
D - I'm a big fan of Quads and this was no disappointment. Very smooth and the alcohol is really well hidden.

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.
