This is labeled as a Belgian Quad style but I found it to be more accurately a dubbel.
This pours a burgundy brown with thin foaming.

There’s an aroma of malty, raisiny … bubble gum? I found the same bubble gum sweetness on the palate. Stone fruits, candied fruits, fig and some molasses sweetness round out the double bubble character.

Served in a tasting glass at Ale Arsenal.

A: Light tight head tops a golden-brown beer. Clear. Heavy lacing.

S: Banana bread. Smells like a hefe.

T: Bready-malty, with a strong, sweet undercurrent. Spicy, like eggnog. Nutmeg? Clove? This is a sorta bland, muddled, distant sweetish flavor. Undecided feelings.

M: Smooth. Vaguely spicy.

O: Not great, but not bad. Kind of watery? Bland and uninspiring. Would not have again.
