A: immediately a massive foamy downy white head that even a few minutes later doesn't show much progress in diminishing. beer is an amber peach color to burnt red.

S: cherries, iron, ripe grapes -- pleasant.

T: refreshing, fruit, cherry returns in the aftertaste. fantastic.

M: lots of carbonation with a very dry finish, somewhat reminiscent of ginger beer except without the overt saccharine stickiness.

O: delicately sweet -- a balance between relaxed fruit and taught dryness that brewers of this style frequently seem to miss. a very impressive beer that I'm going to be on the look out for in the future.

Solid coppery amber colour with lemon highlight. One inch of creamy yellowish head that lasted to the bottom of the glass 45 minutes later. Tons of carbonation streams. Very thick lacing with excellent retention. A perfect look.

Smells like a bakery ... cream puffs. Definite Belgian yeast aroma. Slight inviting alcohol aroma.

Tastes of sweet maltiness. Sweet vanilla cake and toffee. Mild grassy hops at front of taste. As the beer warmed a leathery taste came out. Hints of prunes and raisins. No alcohol taste at all.

A full, rich, chewy feel that coats the mouth. Mild carbo nip.

An outstanding quad. Very easy drinking and delicious. Some other quads might be more complex but none will be more delicious.
