750mL bottle shared with my life-partner. 2011 vintage, pkg on 01/16/2012, best before 01/2017. Had it on 20 October 2012.
A - Pours a walnut color with off-white large head that disappears rather quickly leaving a thin topping that lasts forever.
S - Very nice blend of Quadrupel (strong Belgian yeast character, biscuity, dark fruits, estery, spicy) with obvious aromas from the Kriek (ciderish/tart notes from sour cherries).
T/M - Dominated by the Quad character at first but then blend nicely the wild flavors and finishes with a slightly tart feeling. Smooth palate and nice touch of alcohol which adds a warming feeling and spices to the mix. Sweetness is kept moderate to give space to other flavors to develop (esters and cherry).
O - Overall, a great beer which combines nicely two legendary Belgian styles in a delicate and balanced way. Highly recommended!

A: Dark amber almost solid red. creamy white head, builds quickly and diminished to a thin lace and medium foam around the edges of the glass. Carbonation is visible in the amber liquid. .
S: Beer Yeast, malt and plum, slight caramel - very nice!
T: Malty, with hints of dart fruit a bit creamy and crisp finish. ABV is there but not overpowering. You know you are drinking a solid quality beer. very balance notes of malt and cherry, again not powerful. Oddly, for a beer with this high abv the flavors are not very alcoholic at all.
M: Great medium body, smooth with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Excellent beer and hope to have again.
