A: Dark brown cloudy with a ruby tinge. No visible carbonation, but a 4 finger beige rocky head with thick chunky lacing.


S: A bouquet of aroma comes out on opening the bottle. Flowers, cherries, nail polish, ripe banana, cream, raisins, figs, black currents.


T: Wonderful. The same flowers and cherries and blossoms, a little nail polish, ripe banana, cream, raisins and figs, chocolate and Christmas all are there.


M: Medium thick body, smooth fine bubbled carbonation.


O: Awesome brew. I got this one at Bruisin Ale’s in Asheville, drank it in New Hamburg, ON Aug 19, 2014.

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was a massive, off white, foamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of yeast, dark fruit, and chocolate.

T: Tasted of dark fruit (raisins, especially), chocolate, Belgian yeast, and a hint of malt. This is a classic quadrupel flavor. Very vibrant and complex, but never heavy.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a very solid and drinkable quadrupel. It never seems like a beer with an 11% ABV. Quite tasty and easy to drink.

11oz Bottle from Total Wine Tampa FL for $5

Appearance - The beer pours a black/brown colour with a very large frothy beige coloured head. I can't see much carbonation due the darkness of the beer and there is some great lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - Malts, dates/raisins, anise, chocolate

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, dark fruits, and anise. There is also some light chocolate, candied sugar, and a root beer type flavour.

Drink - A little more anise/peppery bite than I like, but still and great mix of complex flavours and a perfect mouthfeel. The alcohol is well hidden and the mix of flavours makes this a great sipper.

Resting upon the success of their lighter fare tripel and blonde, De Halve Maan delivers with a grand cru type recipe to capture the attention of the taste buds and the heartstrings.

Its rich garnet hue is deep and slightly hazed, yet has a masculine brightness about it. Its tawny-sweet scent is decadent with malt flavors ranging from light molasses and brown sugar to hard candy and root beer. Flavors follow suit as the early palate is malty-sweet and particularly lavish.

Tangy wine-like character rise in the middle to balance the sweetness and offer a plethora of vinous complexity. Cabernet acidity links up with peppercorn spice to counter an estery edge comprised of raisin, date, fig and plum.

Its spicy bitterness continues to develop deep in finish as the ale turns decidedly warm, spicy and peppery. Taking on spiced rum proportions with that tangy red wine tartness, the taste concludes with port and effervescence.

Gorgeous dark brown, even perceived as eggplant purple, this was capped by a line of dense bubbly foam.

The nose was a touch boozy, more of a natural ethanol, with prunes, raisins, and malts.

The flavors were more vivid with an upstart of black licorice or anise. The middle palate receives more Dark fruit reminiscent of prunes and raisin. The finish is malty, caramel perhaps, with a bit of twangy spice.

The feel is easy, but I get some tangy spiciness and a touch of alcohol.

Not the best Quad I've ever had but still Damn good!

4.04/5  rDev -2.2%

Pours a brilliant deep brown with a lingering frothy khaki head. Aroma is slightly sweet, with dark candi sugar and subtle plum and date notes. Fairly difficult to get much aroma. Flavor reveals deeply caramelized, toffee-like malt character at the backbone, with prunes and dates adding contrast. The finish is dry and somewhat bitter, with a touch of roast. Not as sweet as I anticipated. The finish is more bitter than expected, as well. Malt character lacks complexity.
