Bottle to tulip, with a big *pop* of the cork. My excuse being the upcoming Washington Belgianfest...
A: A dark brown mahogany color with a hint of orange—the color of certain preserves, perhaps. A fluffy fine-bubbled tan head with thick lacing at the glass. I ended up dropping a bit of yeast on top as well...
S: Figs, apricots, bready malts, spices, and the expected yeast. A fig newton with added complexity. As it warms, more fruits pipe up, and sugars as well.
T: Sweet start, then malts, banana. A hint of bitter. A succinct finish.
M: Midweight. An initial burst of moderate carbonation, but still goes down smoothly. Nice dry finish.
Really liked this Quad; haven't had too many...makes me want to pick up a few others.
