look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into an Ommegang Tulip.

Appearance
Garnet with red highlights. Slightly hazed with 1-2 fingers of loose head.

Nose
Cherry, plum, honey, hay and booze.

Taste
Overripe plum, red grapes and cherry. Sweet honey malts and caramelized grains. Good amount of Belgian funk comprised of dried hay, clove and pink peppercorn. Slightly boozy.

Taste
Medium bodied, smooth and slightly drying.

Overall
Great American made Quad. Would really love more dark fruits. Big honey sweetness and Belgian funkiness. The 9.8% abv could be better disguised.
