look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Beautiful amber color with a fairly small white head.

Smell: Bready Belgian yeast notes and fruity overtones.

Taste: The bready Belgian yeast notes and fruity overtones in the nose are present in the taste. The wine and whiskey notes from the barrel aging make a slight appearance in the finish. The very last remnant is slightly dry.

Mouth-feel: Body is on the Medium side with a modest level of carbonation.

Overall: Good beer, but does not fit the profile of a traditional quadrupel. I knew what it was prior to my review, having had it on tap, but people who are expecting a traditional quad will be put off by this. My scores are a compromise, I like this beer and will pick it up again, but label it as a Belgian Strong Pale ale or something more fitting and my scores would be higher. Still I like this one.
