Poured into Pint mug, I know it's not the proper glass, but I compensated as a result.

Appearance: Reddish cloudy unfiltered burn amber orangy with a thin white head.

Aroma: very fruity like raspberries and apple and plums

Taste: Fruity, like sweet raspberries, cranberries, blueberries, with plums and apple. I cant taste the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: thin boddied and highly carbonated.

Overall: This is a great beer, much sweeter than the Trappistes Rochefort 10. This is still a great beer although I don't think it compares to it.

bottle into tulip

appearance: cloudy unfiltered burnt orange, with some mahogany undertones, 2 finger bubbly white head, not much lacing. also the bottle shape is remarkably awesome.

smell: dark fruits, bready notes, sweet malt, plum

taste: bready, dark fruits, sweet and sugary, figs, caramel, vanilla, coriander, plum. The finish is so smooth that you would think this is a 6% ABV beer. Wow, this is amazingly balanced and smooth, they're on some Monk level shit…

mouthfeel: highly carbonated and rather thin bodied

overall: This Quad honestly gives a monk a run for their money. Easily my favorite non-trappist Quad (that's including ABT 12), this is honestly a very underrated beer. I've had their Tripel and it was amazing, and this is just an all around amazing brew. I will be buying this again, in my opinion this one almost rivals the beloved Rochefort 10, AND is cheaper is by about $3.00 where I live. Pleasantly surprised once again from this sleeper Belgian brewery, will be trying all of their beers.

A: Very faint columns of microcarbonation, hazy ruby orange-brown.
S: Heavy and apricotish fruitiness, leather, slight plasticy alcohol
T: intense, slightly sour, slightly fruity (unsweet apricot), a hair bitter, alcohol isn't so overt
M: Crisp sting and slightly mouth puckering.
O: Not mind blowing but certain solid.
