3.45/5  rDev -9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a copper color and a clear texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not a whole lot of lacing here.

S: A decent, but not spectacular aroma of yeast, malt, and assorted fruits.

T: Tasted of Belgian yeast, malt, and the aforementioned fruits - mainly apple, peach, and pear. Not bad flavor, but it just wasn't strong enough. It's simply too thin (especially in the finish) to be effective.

M: An average amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is one of those above average beers that you'll immediately forget about the next day. Could have been better.

Pours a cloudy, dark copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, astringency, slight grass, hint of yeast, slight pale malt, hint of banana, hint of coriander, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of a Quadrupel. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, yeast, sweet malt, slight pale malt, hint of citrus, and hint of caramel malt. Overall, strong body, but lacking in complexity, good appearance and decent aroma.

somewhat of a blonde quad, lighter looking, more copper than brown or red, not a ton of head, just a thin tan film. the nose is lighter too, less sweetness and more of a saison yeast aromatic than a belgian one. paler grain too, more of a cereal or cracker vibe than the molasses and honey notes i usually get in this style. the flavors are subtle too on the grain front, with fruity yeast doing about as much flavoring as the grain. i dont find it thin or lacking though, and with how well hidden the alcohol is, i am pleased that its so light, its a very different take on the quad. not a ton of sweetness, but a mild butterscotch finish, and then the yeast dries it right up, its real tasty but again, extremely unconventional as a quad. better as a strong ale i think, but a cool beer nevertheless. hides its booze well and doesnt show sweet, i like that. great bubbles and only a lighter medium on the body. affordable too at just 5 bucks or so per bottle.
