Quad is such an inconsistent style that I wasn't sure what to expect -- definitely not this, though. Blushing golden in color. This is a million miles from the dark stuff we know and love from Belgium.
It warmed up beautifully, and the pomegranate flavor is more prominent than I would have expected. The alcohol is well-disguised, but it's mostly disguised by the sweetness, which is a bit cloying if you let it linger. All told, I really like this beer a lot and would look forward to getting another bottle. Hopefully I can dig one.

Amazing. Belgian yeast (actually a pretty light touch) along with some strong sweetness from the malt. Sweet like a good barleywine would be, a sweetness that seems totally natural in this context. Most beers that are in the style don't choose to go so sweet, but for this beer it really, really works. Absolutely my new favorite.
