Popped open a 750mL bottle after a cold snowy day in which the Eagles prevailed mightily in a win over Detroit. Cork popped off with relative ease. Poured into a thin walled chalice glass for review.

Pours a light golden amber with rocky white head and high carbonation. Smells of green apple & pear, some yeasty Belgian phenols, and some peppery spice. Perfumey. Smells syrupy sweet.

Tastes like cotton candy with pear & apple notes. Some notes of raisins and cherries as well. Malty sweet upfront but finishes very dry. No real hop flavor or aroma. Feels thick, full bodied. Alcohol seems in check although it is definitely present and seems apparent in the nose (as my wife graciously pointed out).

A wonderful beer. Saved this one since last Xmas and it held up wonderfully. Would def try and drink again.

Poured into turbinator from bomber.

A: clear-ish medium ruddy golden color. Big 3 finger ecru head that settled into a slender 1 finger head. Tight bubbles.

S: Cider vinegar, apples, sour apples, esters, spicy yeast notes. Smells like Christmas without the nutmeg.

T: Apple-brandy like notes dominate. Very floral, ripe dark fruits like cherries, some banana and melon. Large boozy content is enhanced and being suppressed by bigger dark fruit notes, and some funk in the background.

M: Smooth big medium-full body is filling and offset by the copious tight and probably bottle-enhanced carbonation. Slightly sour finish with metallic notes and a touch of sourness.

O: This is highly regarded and I see why. Would seek out if in the mood for a big quad with these expressive and apple notes. This is not as subtle as some Quads I have had, but it brings a lot to the party.
