2010 version poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet.

Proof that looks aren't everything, since this beer wasn't exactly a gem to look at. Its appearance was cloudy brown with yeast particles floating near the base. It was what I'd call murky looking and the pour produced very little head and only thin lacing. This makes sense though given the nearly four years of age.

I was almost expecting to drink a Berliner Weisse or a sour based on the nose profile. The aroma was very tart, yeasty, with notes of berry and brown malt. Surprisingly, the first sip was sweeter than the nose lead me to expect. I tasted cherries and yeast, a cherry pie flavor, slight tartness, Belgian candy syrup, and an aftertaste of bread and hints of alcohol.

The beer drinks thick and malty, is tart and yeasty creating a slight mouth-puckering sensation and was still sweet, but not cloying.

It's a good beer that goes in many directions, but it's all done very tastefully. My expectations for something tart were slightly misleading, as this beer remains true to its quad roots on the tongue.

OMG. Open the bottle and the aroma hits you in the face. Don’t pour inclined into the glass. Pour it like a wine. Nice head becomes a thin film but it doesn’t fade. Dark brown, almost black, see through. Aroma of a giant chunky banana, raisins, some chocolate, liquid bread, a tiny bit floral. Medium body, low carbonation, fruity on top, explosion of flavors in the middle, alcoholic at the end.

4.13/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark brown cola colour with 1 finger of sudsy head which quickly dissipates to a thin layer without any lacing.

S: Dark dried cherries, plums, raisons, fig and almonds with hints of dank wet wood. Middle notes of sweet dark malts with mild rum notes on the finish.

T: Cherry cola upfront followed by soaked dried fruit of plums, raisons and plums. Middle of rum, vanilla and wet wood that leads in to a dark rum finish.

M: Medium bodied with snappy carbonation and a dry finish.

O: The most fruity quad I've had, with lots of cherries and dark dried fruit. Less alcohol in both the nose and mouth than what I expected. While less complex than other quads, this is extremely enjoyable and I would definitely seek out again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

The beer has big notes of fruit bread, dark cherries, plums, and dates in the front. There's then a caramel and sweet over ripen banana. There are hints of alcohol and lots of winter spice.

The flavor on the finish is a bit lacking with a lighter medium mouthfeel.
