Had as part of a flight at Haven Gastropub in Orange, CA. Expectations were high. Poured in a 5 oz tulip glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Deep reddish brown, thin head. Exquisite lacing.

S- Hoppy with sour and lighter fruits. Typical Quad.

T- Light fruits, light malts and boozy. It's damn good.

M- Pretty thick bodied, well carbonated.

O- Great beer!

2011 Vintage Jan 9 2012

Pours a hazy amberish color with a 1 finger head that fades very quickly.

Smell is sweet with small fruit presence.

Tasts has a lot of dark fruit going on, you can really taste the cherry lambic in there. You get a small hop precence in the end. Alcohol is present just not as much as I would have thought.

Mouthfeel is average, maybe a little over carbonated.

A good beer that everyone should have at least once.

12 oz bottle from the Ommegang mixed 8-pack

A- Dark reddish brown, slightly translucent, slightly above average carbonation, about 2 fingers foamy off-white head with good retention, some lacing.

S- Fairly aromatic, could smell while pouring. Malts, floral smell, slightly minty, dark fruits.

T- Dark fruit- cherries, plums, etc.; malts; slightly sweet; great aftertaste.

M- Medium Bodied, a tiny bit syrupy. Average carbonation, smooth, very drinkable at almost 10%, well balanced.

O- I definitely enjoyed this beer. It's very rare that you can get a mixed pack with such good beers. Definitely a good offering from Ommegang.

A - Half a finger of head, very dark amber coloring. Lacing sticks to the glass for quite a while after sipping.

S - Pronounced cloves and malt. Dark fruits and a little yeast. Appropriate and consistent for a quadruple.

T - Bold malts. Not as sweet as i expected from the nose. Lots of other flavors in the background, complex. Spices, breads and a slight alcohol finish.

M - Heavy mouthfeel and pretty carbonated. More of a sipper.

O - Awesome beer. Very complex and has a ton of flavors to savor. I will look forward to drinking this again.
