Notes / Commercial Description:
Quadrupel is La Trappeā€™s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced.

A: reddish orange with a huge white head. Nice tight bubbles.

S: figs and caramel. banana and very bready. A little yeast and a punch in the face of overly ripe (rotten) cherries.

T: Sour cherries up front followed by a lingering banana. Lots of caramel and fig. Almost a wine tannin quality up front. Sour plum as well. Reminiscent of raspberry marmalade.

M: This is a thick brew. not much in the way of carbonation.

O: Pretty simple compared to other trappist quads but still delicious and bursting with flavor. Very enjoyable / 88

A: Hazy, with lively carbonation tossing around yeast flakes, beautiful reddish amber in color. single finger cream head trying to be a nitro head.
S: Yellow plum, decaying apricot, slight plastic yeast punch.
T: Sweet fermenting prunes, faint nutty (cashew) aftertaste, alcohol is present but not in a negative way, makes it more like a brandy
M: quite Smooth,
O: I guess it's good for the style, but quads aren't my thing. It actually resembles an intense tripel
