Ginger color, with a ring of head

Rich aromas of cherries, barrel, yeast, plum, more cherries.

Cherries take a backseat to the booze but it's still there with a clean wood flavor, light citrus, and caramel.

Feel is hot and smooth. Kinda boozy , not bad.

Overall this captures the Belgian tradition well and is super enjoyable . A tilt your head back beer.

Poured to a Leffe chalice.

A: The body is amber to coppery with cristalline light going thtough. The head is white with a one finger thickness. Lacing is visible and generous.
S: The aroma is very syrupy, with hints of raisins and just a small note of coffee on a bunch of profiles for yeast and malt.
T: Again, raisins, yeast, probably brettomanyces and just a pinch of malt. Testes really great!
M: The density appears to be a bit low and carbonation is low after a while sitting on the glass, though at first it was very strong, carbonation wise. Would work on this.
O: For a quad, this doesn't hold very well for the common appearance but it's good indeed. Not fantástico, but a good option when lacing better quads.

Picked up in la belle province (Gatineau, QC) for a pittance. Exactly what I expected, smells and tastes like the liquid dessert that it is. Love them monk quads.

Look: It pours dark amber with a light tan head. It produces plenty of lacing.

Smell: It has a sweet malt aroma with caramel, plums, and dried cherry.

Taste: The flavors are highlighted by a burst of fruity esters with the plums the most noticeable. There are also some spices with dried cherry and caramel.

Feel: There is some moderate alcohol warming. It has a moderately full body that produces a sweet finish with a bit of bitterness.

Overall this produces a burst of fruity esters highlighted by the plums with a complex malt mixture that has a pleasant sweet finish with tinges of bitterness throughout the taste.

33 cl bottle poured into a chalice. Hazy, amber color. Frothy foam that diminish fast to a small crown. Fair lacing. Aroma of a malt, cereals, a banana, an apricot, raisins, some caramel and spicy phenols. Oily in palate, lively carbonated. Full body. Medium sweet and bitter. Fantastic dry, long lasting finish. Some alcohol, but very mild. Beer sticks to lips. Fantastic beer. I will try it after cellaring.

Alc. 10% vol.
