Awesome quad with a great price here in Mexico. One of my favourite beers of all time. Pours golden with red highlights. Taste is complex and strong, quad character is present.

This bottle was a gift from outdoor7or24. Pours a murky deep amber swimming with particulates, producing 2+ fingers of beige, finely bubbled, foamy, lasting head that leaves sticky rings & streaks of lacing. Aroma sweet caramel malt, brown sugar, sweet fruity bread, raisin, cooked pears & dried apples, a little banana, honey & Belgian funk, a hint of sourness & faint alcohol. Taste is brown bread, brown sugar, apple sauce, slight Belgian yeast funk, pepper spice, some dark fruit hints & alcohol heavier than in the nose. Among all this is fairly prominent medicinal note. Finish is fruity, dry, boozy, caramel, lightly bitter, spicy with a slight pepper bite producing an alcohol spice, bitter-sweet aftertaste. The medicinal taste is pervasive throughout the sip. Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium carbonation, dry finish & warm with a little alcohol spice bite.

- lighter hue than most quads but a red brown hue with a lighter color head
- smell is more wine than most a lot of red grapes and some sweetness
- taste starts with more red grapes turns to dark fruit then yeast aftertaste
- feel is a little syrup feeling to me also really fizzy
- overall a good quad but have had better
