This is my personal favorite quad. Pours dark brownish red with a thick egg white head and lots of lacing. Some quads are dry, others are sweet. This one is on the sweeter side due to the cherry blend. But don't mistake this for a cherry beer because it is merely an ingredient and not the focus. The cherry flavor accentuates the natural dried fruit flavors of the quad. The result is an extraordinarily well balanced strongly flavored beer that is not overly hoppy or malty beer and no hint of an aftertaste. Just beautiful.
