330ml bottle. Grimbergen Chalice glass. Copper brown color, veiled appearance. Close crown, light beige in color, shows fairly good retention & leaves a lasting thin layer on top. Aroma profile includes caramel malts & berries, herbal & citric notes, hints of chocolate & sugar alcohol. Toasted malty & sugary upfront with light tartiness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Silky palate. Hints of sirup, candies & fruits - strawberries & currants-. Tartar touch & warming alcohol & spices linger into a long sweet finish. Slight fruity aftertaste.

330ml bottle, poured into Kasteel Chalice. A: Dark mahogany, thick looking, one finger head, decent retention, lots of lacing. S: Lots of cranberry, molasses. T: Cranberry, brown sugar, hints of cocoa like bitterness towards the end. M: Surprisingly light, smooth, moderate carbonation. O: Gets points for the crisp body and well hidden booze, but lacked depth of other Quads.
