There is a decent head with a dark Cola color.

There’s an alcohol and dark fruit aroma.

This is very smooth compared to Rochefort 10. It has less of a fruit pop with a decent spice flavor. There is good carbonation. It is the most smooth of the beers I had with a blind tasting with this, Rochefort 10, and Chimay Blue.

If you want a lovely easy drinkable and smooth quad, highly recommended. Try it if you want to have a quad for the first time.
