look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours 3 fingers of a slightly orange tan foamy head, body is a beautiful opaque rich dark copper amber, really nice lacing and retention for the session.

Smell - Ripe dark fruits of plums and cherries, warm sherry soaked fruit cake, freshly baked sweet yeasty wheat bread.

Taste - Starts out with flavors of sherry and fruity red wine, definitely getting dark fruit flavors of plum and cherry like in the nose, but also red and purple grapes, especially the lite sourness of grape skins. At the end of the sip and long into the finish I get more of the baked fruitcake and light yeast, with lingering fruit and grapeskins. No alcohol presence here, nice.

Mouthfeel - Definitely a medium mouthfeel here - very bold and flavorful, but the wonderful smooth champagne-like carb keeps it all on the lighter side, and perfectly in check. A very flavorful, enjoyable and drinkable quad.

Overall - Really a delicious quad, and a nice representative of the style. Give this one a try.
