look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pours into a chalice a hazy golden orange color, head is very minimal with hardly any lacing on the glass.
Smell starts out with a strong tart fruity aroma, pomegranate, Belgian candied sugar add to the aroma, some other spicy esters, hints of alcohol is evident to the nose.
Taste is rather light and crispy for a Quad, likely from the pomegranate which adds a nice fruity tartness, not overly sweet but plenty enough from the candied sugar, carbonation is active and bubbly in the mouth even though it wasn't in the glass, alcohol is more than evident but isn't too distracting.
An interesting Quad, definitely more fruity than most so if fruit in a beer is a turnoff to you, you might want to avoid this one.
