Ligher in color than most quads. Really nice yeasty spice on the nose. Taste is great and balanced. Warming finish. Very creamy full bodied feel. A really nice quad. Nothing wrong here. Glad its easy to find this one.

You'd think Gulden Draak had been making this quad for ages instead of just 3 years or so. Poured a one finger white head over an amber body into a 25 cl La Trappe chalice from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle. Light, musty fruit smell. Tastes of toffee and tobacco, with a subtle fruit sweetness, and a unique ginger ale type undercurrent. Absolutely spectacular effervescent, mouth-puffing mouthfeel, a leader in the style, right up there with St. B abt 12. Gulden Draak may be late to the quad party, but they nailed it.

Review number 400.

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Bronze, clear, one and a half finger head, good retention with lots of lacing
clinging to the side of the glass.

S: Fruity, boozy esters, some cherry.

T: Hits you with the trademark Van Steenberge yeasty fruity sweetness, followed up with a hard hitting boozy kick, strong notes of brandy.

M: Minimal carbonation, heavy chewy texture, the booze made it burn.

O: Basically this was brandy thinned out with water, a really heavy sipping beer, the booze took away attention from anything else, slightly disappointing offering from one of my favorite breweries, I hope age can mellow this beer.

Dried cherries and cranberry. Fizzy carbonation. Alcohol at the end is slightly medicinal
