Pies bright amber with solid head and abundant lacing into 4oz glass. Smell is right bread and malt. Taste is same with maybe a hint of malt. Bready, yeasty( smooth, and enough drinkabiliyy and complexity to make it fun to keep sipping. Very good beer.

Pours hazy amber red-orange with a dense creamy off-white foam head. Smells like banana, almond, vanilla, red plum, some cherry, apricot, caramel, bready cereal grain, mild funky hay, sweet clove spice, apple skin, pear, grape, with floral earthy grass. Tastes like banana, almond, vanilla, red plum, cherry, apricot, caramel, bready cereal grain, mild funky hay, sweet clove spice, apple skin, pear, grape, with floral earthy grass. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and smooth with low carbonation. Overall a really great Quad.

Dark amber, verging on red, with a large, bubbly khaki foam.

Smell is butterscotch, caramel apple, and light phenols.

Taste seems hot at first, but I think that is just the phenols catching me off guard. This is paired with sweet caramel, toffee, spices, banana and toast. Full-bodied, finishing dry.

Another Dutch beer! I had to as it was sitting right next to the tripel karmeliet on the supermarket shelf!

It looks pretty good initially, a nice deep coppery body and huge head, unfortunately in less than 2 minutes the beer almost looks flat and the head is gone like the preverbal wind.

It has tonnes of fig notes in the aroma, very nice indeed and very inviting.

The taste and feel are hampered by the alcohol unfortunately, which does linger into the after taste.

It is an appealing brew, and it does sell itself as a warming and spicy beverage, which is exactly what it is.....a true winter warmer.

Overall I think it is very good, not quite in the superb bracket, but pretty close.

Re-review from June 2015: Pretty straightforward Belgian Quad, has your typical raisin / date / fig notes, more fruit forward than some because I felt it lacks some of those spicy yeast phenols.
