Classic quadruple look, with a ruby red body, a head that started at two fingers thick and settled down to a layer of bubbles, and a larger amount of lacing against the chalice walls. The aroma was that of cherries, red apples, and plum. You cold feel the sourness in the smell. The taste was tart like vinegar with a large amount of tannin from the oak barrels as well. This was very dominated by the aged part of the blend, although it appears to be the minority. The feel felt far less rich in the mouth compared to what I remember the regular Abt 12 to be. There was a bit of runny feel to this, and the warmth from the alcohol was more apparent. A nice experiment that leans more on the Flanders red side of thing rather than the Quadrupel.
