It's my favorite drink. The hue of it hummed. The body is not too sweet, chewy but subtly dry. Wonderful phenols from the yeast... I miss this drink

Cellared above 45 degrees for a year, and worth the time... without a doubt.

Unbelievable. I'm not sure if this beer it that remarkable or if its my love of quads coming through after not having had one in awhile. The look, the smell, the flavors, the texture, it has it all. I have to say it is a 5.0.

Suprised how light and clear this looks for a quad. I am used to thick dark quads and this is definitely more belgian to me.

a little bit of spices, a lot of carbonation, and almost a cidery type taste. Very delicious beer, one to stock up on for sure.

The 11% is hidden very well and easy to drink, i could get carried away on this one really quick.

Overall this really is an excellent beer, easily in my top 10.

Poured from a 22 into a snifter. Best by date of 8/4/12

Pours a burnt gold color with a white head of solid-looking foam that quickly disperses into floating islands of foam. The nose is big and complex, with very strong alcohol and yeast that does not quite overpower the subtleties of grapes, coriander, lavender and pepper. This beer is delicious! Maybe I should drink more belgians, but this one was quite good. Simple and extremely flavorful. Sweet and light, like a medium white wine. Lemon and coriander are subtle tones that bow down before an entrance of oak and earthiness. The finish could have been a little more crisp, but that is my only main complaint.
