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

Not an experienced as most users with reviews so I'll keep it simple. I aged the beer for about a year. Upon opening, the carbonation rushed from the bottle. Beautiful head after pouring. The smell reminds brings my mind to honey and raisins. With such a high alcohol content, it is surprisingly easy to drink and by far the best Belgian quad I've ever tasted.

Dense copper orange color with foamy beige head that slowly settles. Smells of date fruits. Tastes of dates, sweet with a little spice notes. Mouthfeel is a little syrupy, and although it is still bubbling that is mostly absent in the mouthfeel. Overall, the first clear golden quad I've tried and it is substantially different from the typical dark quads - flavor and smell seems less complex and the mouthfeel was not as good.

It pours a much lighter color than most Quads (the label describes the color as "amberblonde"). The head is impressive for a beer of this strength and the lacing is even more amazing. The aroma is of raisins and fresh honey. The taste is similarly rich in honey and raisin notes and you can definitely feel some alcohol warmth. Not too sweet. The body is not as thick as I expected (yet it can still be described as full) but the small-bubble carbonation on the tongue is very pleasant. A very enjoyable quad.
