3.43/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

bottle picked up locally, enjoyed from my stillwater wine glass.

a - beer pours a fairly attractive dark maroon with a half finger of bubbly head that hung out for a while. it had a bit of a creamy look to it.

s - crisp zesty white pepper leads the way like a menthol coating. beneath is dark fruit and belgian yeast.

t/m - flavor is quite nice. fairly soft and light...leaves a white pepper aftertaste with a hint of bitterness and crispness. dark fruit, but again, in the back seat behind the spicing.

o - overall, interesting take on the style, but when it comes to quads, i'm a bit of a purist and for my taste buds and likes, you really can't top the classics from belgium for this style. very unique and interesting and worth checking out, but not something i'd pick up a 6'er of.

2.98/5  rDev -21.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

A-poured a murky light brown with an off white head that dissipated quickly

S-semi-fruity, but mostly it smelled odd, somewhat like urine

T-fruity with some caramel and a hint of Belgian spice-not very good, especially for the style

M-semi-thick and syrupy

D-not a very good version of the style, so I wasn't disappointed in only having half of a bottle

Overall, I would never drink this again.

(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours a slightly dense brown body with a garnet hint at the base and a fizzy porous head of light tan.

S- The baked apple crisp esters have hints of dark brown sugar and some cola notes growing as it opens up. There is a roasted apple skin note in the finish.

T- The dry woody malt flavor leads to an earthy dry bitter note in the finish. Some dry brown sugar hints and dry circus peanut esters come through as it opens aswell.

M- the light mouthfeel has a nice little alcohol prick in the finish supported by a tight little fizz.

O- The nice depth to the nose doesn't quite make it to the taste but it has some nice character and a good gentle alcohol bite to complete the beer. Very nice sipping beer and not the normal quad character.

3.8/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Very clear pour with light orange and chestnut hues, very thin ring of retention, but it shows some leg.

S: Tropical fruit (pineapple and papaya), field berries and hints of cheap, boozy Canadian sherry.

T: Fairly alcohol forward, caramalized raisins, christmas cake (maraschino cherries), candied pineapple, papaya, modest bitterness, light spicing and thankfully not phenolic.

M: Well-attenuated, moderate body has a drying alcohol finish.

O: I think this would age REALLY nicely.
