I think this received a lot of hype when it came out, and a lot of backlash from that hype. But that’s old news now and in a way it’s good, because it gives one an opportunity to review and evaluate the beer on it’s merits.
First off, for a Belgian style quad this looks nothing like what I’d expect it to be. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. But it’s so… light! Not the burgundy amber I’d expect, but not the clear straw-golden color of, say, a triple. Somewhere inbetween. Apparently aged in wine barrels, and that definitely comes through on the dry finish. An experiment, hybrid, curious beer that’s no where near the monstrosity I was led to believe it would be.
