Big thanks to the kind trader that gave this one away, I was initially tempted to trade for this one based off of the name and label. As time grew on, I grew more and more hesitant to pull this beer out of my cellar. I have fallen in love with aging beers, but the thing is that I hadn't had this one fresh (semi-fresh). I needed to try this one just to see it's roots, shared with treyrab.
Beautiful hazy ruby red with orange tones that lighten up this stunning appearance. Beautiful 2 finger light yellow 2 finger head that remains through out the duration of the beer. Very nice.
The smell is very quad-tacular. Really nice sweet white grqapes stick out the most. A sugar complex is also very noticeable, as is some sweet cherry and some light brown sugar and bannana as well as some pleasing dark red grapes.
Don't know about this one, not on my short list of favorite quads. Tons of rougher tastes that would be better with time. Some prevelant alcohol tastes which really overshadow the other sweeter tastes. Way to hot. I'm serious my mouth lit on fire. Each sips tastes like a St. Bernardus 12 with a shot and a half of cheap vodka. Maybe try and grab another and let it sit for at least three years out of fear.

This is a really good beer! It has sharp teeth, so be wary of the bite - the ABV presents itself almost instantly. The taste is similar to many other quads but what makes this one unique is the taste of almond and overt caramel. The mouthfeel and the body are identical in many respects to other quads, but the level of smoothness that this particular one brings to the table is paralleled by few others. It's definitely worth a try. Kansas City has made big strides to match the monks' skills and pallet.

Like what? Trappist-style ales seem simplified to me, but the tangy yeasts and bready mouthfuls of flavor in this bronson are smooth despite the 10.5% alcohol. Really impressed with this number, even considering the enormous amount of decent trappist ales out there. Fantastic beer that I look to make a staple of my summer Tour de France viewing libation menu.
