Description: This strong Belgian Ale is full of flavor and draws its coloring from the addition of sour cherries during its final resting. This is a version of the very popular "Streaking the Quad" that was featured at the Belgian Cheers to Belgian Beers Festival.
On tap at the Portland brewpub. The beer is served in a snifter, appearing dark orange with a red tint when held to light. The small fizzy head quickly dissipates.
The aroma is of candied and brown sugar and fresh cherries. There's a subtle tartness in the nose, but the base Quad is still recognizable with sweet bready notes. The cherries add a nice touch to the flavor, and become pretty dominant as the beer warms. Candied sugar is noticeable again, and the finish is sweet cherries and bready malt with some warming alcohol.
The beer is medium bodied with a low level of carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. An interesting twist on a classic style.
