Mnnn.....MNNNNNNNnnn.....damn, this is good. Pineapple, honey and plum with a hint of hops. Very different from most Quads and Tripels. Hides the 10% quite well when cold. To top it off, the smell is divine and the head pretty decent. Overall, a winner. One of my top five.

The best quad I have ever taste. Sweet and strong and the same time. It is amazing but by the tine is warming up the alcohol taste increases 10%. I prefer this one quite cold at 5 degrees aprox.

Hands down my favorite beer of all time. So far.
Introduced to several friends and relatives with nothing but positive results.
I'd share it more, but if I don't think you'd appreciate a beer that retails over $5 per glass, I might hold it back.
Bias note - I am particularly fond of Belgian ales. This one is tops in my book, even though it's from Netherlands.

Pours a very slightly cloudy orange/copper color with an inch and a half white head that was well retained and left nice lacing. Smells of sweet malts, bananas and alcohol. Tastes of sweet malts, bananas, honey, cloves, apples, yeast and raisins. Medium to full bodied, well carbonated, slightly dry and bitter finish.

Opens with a loud pop of the cork. Pours a pretty golden orange ,slightly hazy with a generous light tan head. Smells sweet, honey & banana & apples. Tastes like a frosted breakfast cereal drenched with Baileys Irish Cream. Lots of roasted malt flavor, almost Smokey. More alcohol flavor than you’d expect from just 10%. More than enough carbonation, with perfect thickness. Excellent!

Lots of carbonization. Lighter color kept rating lower. Good flavor. Nice head on the pour but left quickly. Little lacing. I smelled and tasted apple. Guess my tongue is weird.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Look: Surprisingly light orange, with a gigantic white head.

Smell: So strong you can smell it from a foot away! Banana, malt, and a little orange peel?

Taste: That banana flavor hits you first, followed by a bittersweet yeasty bread flavor and a very noticeable alcohol flavor.

Mouthfeel: Thick, but surprisingly high in carbonation. Typically thick beers aren't very carbonated, but this is downright sparkling.

Overall: While I personally don't like bananas, I can't fault this beer for my own personal food preferences. It's a surprisingly complex flavor coupled with high alcohol content, and an excellent example of showing what beer is capable of without tasting awful.

Look - very light for a quad, hazy copper color.
Smell - banana, sweet, malty smell
Taste - very complex, nice sweetness, low bitterness. I get banana, slight vanilla, malty. It smooths and is better as it warms.
Feel - very smooth and the high alcohol really doesn't come through.
Overall it's very good but for me personally it's not my favorite quad but it is very good and certainly would drink again.
