This Quad from Landtsheer was decent.....at 12%abv was very smooth and easy to drink. The beer poured a rich amber...maybe dark amber (was tough to tell with the darker room I was in) there was a sudsy head that dissipated and did not leave a lace. The scent was typical of most Quads...not overpowering. The taste was slightly tart with good Belgian sugar to balance it out. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it was decent...and I am not a quad guy.

Huge caramel and toffee flavors with banana accents. Like liquefied Bananas Foster. 12% ABV is undetectable.

Malheur 12 bottle

Appearance: Medium brown. Some floaters from the yeast. A tall head that receded quickly into a short layer. Head is light-tan in color. Appears to have moderate-high lacing. [3.75]

Aroma: Bavarian pretzel rolls, raisin, dark toast, molasses and toffee, booze and plums [4.25]

Taste: Caramel waterfalls, pretzels, sour apples, a little soy sauce, prunes, burnt toast. [4.25]

Feel: Oh so chewy, a little high on the carbonation (initially), definitely a bit cloying (but in a nice way). Goes down way too smooth for 12% [4.25]

Overall: A great quad, especially at the price point / availability
My favorite only behind Westy 12. [4.5]

Medium carbonation. Smooth taste and finish. Alcohol taste is hidden and is a very drinkable quad. Not bitter at all with a good flavor.

Body exhibits a cloudy, copper-brown body with a very thick, fizzy head. The aroma exudes a subdued sweet and fruity scent; caramel and apricot; some citrus. The flavor mirrors much of the characteristics of the smell with a touch of bitterness and notes of alcohol; sharp tartness in the background. Medium-heavy body yet very fizzy.

Not a bad beer per se but comes across rather weak, watery and generally chaotic as far as depth and balance go. The initial pour produced mostly all foam despite using a proper pour technique although it eventually settled into decent balance of body with head. The smell was really low-key although it had a nice variety of scents. The flavor and mouthfeel both seemed rather weak all-around, especially with the overly fizzy carbonation feel. Subsequent sips reminded me more of a bitter cola than a deep, balanced, and complex beer. Fair but certainly meet my expectations for a quad.
