Tennessee

3.98/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a goblet out of a 750ml bottle.

Pours a clear light brown with a one finger fluffy white head. The color is actually lighter than I though it would be. Really good head retention but just ok lacing.

Aroma is on the spicy side with somewhat of a fruitcake note to it. I also can pick up quite a bit of bread and grain, more so than in other quads.

The flavor is on the lighter side for the style. Lots of bread grain from the pilsner malt that is not obscured by the yeast esters. Unfortunately, the lack of yeasty notes limits the complexity a bit. Alcohol is completely hidden but the mouthfeel is a little stickier than I like.

Overall, this is definitely a great quad but not top of the line for me. Probably my third or fourth favorite trappist quad.

3.3/5  rDev -20.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.
