look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Decanted from an 11.2 oz (330 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a hazy amber to light copper color with a foamy, off-white head, serious, persistent retention, and Belgian lacing all the way down the glass.
S: Complex aromas of honey, caramel, bread, spice, prunes, and dates.
T: Flavor largely follow the nose, but the tastes include raisin, light clove, and a strong, dark rum flavor. Again, complex with only very light bitterness evident.
M: Full bodied with solid, persistent carbonation. Slightly more viscous than normal.
O: Maybe a little sweeter than average for the style, but it has a very complex nose and palate. Really a very enjoyable quad. A real treat for any beer aficionado.

11.2oz bottle poured into a glass at the Bier Zot in Sister Bay, WI on 8/12/17. Review from notes. Appears transparent light brown. Smells/tastes of honey, caramel, spice, bready malt, and some dark fruit; great intensity. Quite sweet. Higher, prickly carbonation and below average body. Overall, very enjoyable and drinkable BSDA.

330 ml bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a dark amber red/orange color with a white head, lots of lacing no head retention, very little carbonation.

A: Belgian yeast, dark fruits like plums, figs, dates along with some clove and honey and a slight ripe banana note in the finish, no alcohol coming through on the nose, smells nice.

T: Lots of clove and spice upfront, dark fruits like the nose, Belgian yeast along with slight honey note, alcohol is well hidden on the taste, aftertaste of Belgian yeast, honey, and spice, very nice.

M: Full bodied, thick, syrupy finish, good amount of carbonation gives it a nice pop in the mouthfeel.

O: A solid beer, really enjoyed this one, it has more honey than other Quadrupels I've tasted, not as spice, pepper, and clove forward as well, but really good, alcohol is well hidden, has lots of depth and complexity.

Pours golden with abundant head and lacing. Smell is wheat, cloves, and herbs. Some clove, but no banana- sweetness comes through as wheat, honey, and other herbs and spices. Thick, syrupy feel, despite light appearance. Good stuff.

Gift that my zodiac sign is also dragon; bright amber with a haze through it, the famous Belse yeast smell; Peppery sweet and a little fruit, taste clear sweet wheat and amber muesl and a theatrical sauce of co2 yeast, just say a mouthful of foam
