Lost review in browser, oh well. Cellared upon release, this was my first one. Not a quad by my book at all, but as BSPA, I really thought it was good. I liked the play of the fruit with the robust yet clean alcohol character. The barrel play was modest, but suited the malt bill. Not what I was expected, but solid Belgian style ale. I'm curious how my other bottle will age, but I probably won't want it to loose all the fruit, and therefore don't have high expectations for longer term. I'll check back in within 2-3 years.
