Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is an murky amber color with orange tint with a small white head. The aroma is full of fruit and malt. The taste is malt driven and has an excellent blend of fruit.

Cellared for two years.Hazy red/auburn colour. Thin wispy head. Effervescent.
Boozy aroma. Fruity. Some spice and orange pith is apparent.
Taste is similar to the aroma with added banana.
Rather chewy.
Although complex I have to say I was disappointed with this Quad.

Poured into a snifter. A clear rich copper-ruby color with a foamy off-white head that promptly settled into a wispy cap. Fruity aromas of bananas, cherries, plums, and tropical fruit. Also some raisins, candied apples, and caramel. The banana shows up on the first sip with cherry, toffee, and some estery notes. Medium-bodied and a bit medicinal. A great sipper but not at the level of other Trappist Quads.

12 oz pour on tap into a tulip glass.

A: Amber reddish body that has pretty good clarity with an almost non existent soapy off white head.

S: Dates, figs, banana, clove

T: Nice layered flavors starting out with a light banana, then some dates and raisins finishing with some burnt sugar.

M: Medium bodied and not as syrupy or slick as a lot of quads.

O: I like my quads to be a bit heavier than this, other than that it was pretty good.

Colour dark copper, strongly turbid, medium size, white foam, medium durable. The distinct aroma of fruity, vanilla, licorice slightly, slightly caramel, wood and nuts. The taste is fruity, are plums, figs, vanilla is further re caramel and licorice, peanut notes in the background. At the finish of each sip stone, dry bitterness, greatly reduces the caramel and fruity sweetness. Skillfully hidden alcohol. Saturation medium toward the high-

Poured into a tulip. Amber/light copper with about an inch of head.

Sweet malty aroma with plums, golden syrup, bananas and a whiff of vanilla.

Tastes sweet with strong cherry notes, vanilla, bananas. Offset by a little carbonic acidity and spices.

Medium body that coats the tongue. Goes down warm and boozy with aftertaste of dried cherries and vanilla.

Overall those fruity notes are pretty intense and the result is a beer that is a bit sweet for my taste, but offset with just the right amount of acidity and bitters.
