Typical romantic deep brown Quad with light brown head. Lacing is fine and clings to the glass.
Smell of deep malt with a slight note banana. Complex
Taste is a nice balance of sweet deep malt and fruit and a smooth rich mouthfeel. Finishes sweet.
Another fine Trappist Quad from and excellent brewery. They have also breached out to do collaborations in New Brunswick and the result was fabulous.

Deep, rich, and complex. It has notes of chewy bread, baked bananas, dried nuts and fruit. A perfect deep, rich, and eminently drinkable quad.

Off putting aftertaste that lingers and to sweet for my palate hurts the overall perfect quad in my opinion

Look: Clear, somewhat light amber-orange with a light tan head.

Smell: Like the description says, banana, vanilla, almond, with hoppy, some what grassy undertones.

Taste: This beer reminds me of amaretto. It's sort of bitter in the mouth (it's 10% and you can tell), and that took just a little bit away for me, but it's so sweet. The banana scent gives way to stronger taste of vanilla, almond, and maybe apricots (like I said, amaretto). Beautifully sweet going down, leaves kind of a cool aftertaste. Hints of roastiness as well, almost like hazelnut.

Feel: "Spicy" carbonation, good body. Dry mouthfeel after swallowing.

Overall: Easily one of my favorite beers.

Leans towards the amber side of the spectrum in the quads category.

Distinctive, full bodied flavor that I could identify blindfolded. Otherwise, great carbonation. Excellent beer. So many good memories enjoying this beer. One of my favorite restaurants used to have this on tap. It is the banana smoothy of the premium beer world.
