Poured in a St. Bernardus Goblet.

A: Dark amber with a creamy persistent little head.

S: Green grape, and green apple with a sugar soft alcoholic smell.

T: Spicy with lots of grape and fruit and then a bitter end that gives the balance to the beer. Not so complex as I expected, even when it warmed up.

M: A little alcoholic warm, good carbonation and good bitterness too. Very drinkable if not so complex as I may wanted.

O: A great beer that feels overhyped by the BA Score, its certainly a great and smooth quadrupel, but I not sure if that simplicity is what a good quadrupel should be.
