My current favorite quad. I got to sample this on tap at Yard House and it became my favorite kind of Belgium beer. The taste is so complex that it aroused my tastebuds wherever it touched (there's no better way to describe it). It's just so different from other beers I've had, so don't underestimate it. They did a good job hiding the alcohol too despite its high ABV. Paired well with happy hour food I had Yard House.

Amber pour with light head. Aroma of prunes. Strong raisin/fig flavor start to finish - its a strong flavor true to the style, but I personally found the taste lacking depth.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at The Anchor in Wichita.

In some ways very disappointed in this beer. It was certainly served too cold and it improved as it warmed but it did not meet my overall expectations. 3.75

A - No head crystal clear Amber colored - 4.25

S - Faint alcohol, raisins. 3.5

T - Very vinous, minor sweetness - 3.75

MF - Smooth even with the high ABV. - 4

It's been far too long since I've had a top notch Quad...

This was on the lighter end of the color spectrum, an orange-ish ruddy golden color. It poured with a thick, long lasting bright white head.

Soft, enticing aromas of candi-sugar, brown sugar, plus an abundant array of fruits like, raspberries, figs, and pears. I could find barely a trace of the 10% abv. The flavor follows the smell; and it is incredibly rich and deep. The sugar is present, but this doesn't come across as all that sweet. A gentle blanket of warmth and a strong, fruity presence make sure this stays balanced. The body is full and lush with creamy quality that coats the mouth. Absolutely top-notch, what took me so long to try this?
