It's my favorite drink. The hue of it hummed. The body is not too sweet, chewy but subtly dry. Wonderful phenols from the yeast... I miss this drink

Cellared above 45 degrees for a year, and worth the time... without a doubt.

Unbelievable. I'm not sure if this beer it that remarkable or if its my love of quads coming through after not having had one in awhile. The look, the smell, the flavors, the texture, it has it all. I have to say it is a 5.0.

Very sweet candy like taste, doesn't take like a Quad. Very fruity... Grapes, plums, cherry, and pomegranate. Clove from the aroma comes through on the tongue. Candied sugar. Probably from the Belgian yeast. Wine notes are more subdued them in the aroma but the whiskey comes through more, but very dry finish.. Caramel, toffee, and oak in the hinted background. Thumbs up for sure!!!

Suprised how light and clear this looks for a quad. I am used to thick dark quads and this is definitely more belgian to me.

a little bit of spices, a lot of carbonation, and almost a cidery type taste. Very delicious beer, one to stock up on for sure.

The 11% is hidden very well and easy to drink, i could get carried away on this one really quick.

Overall this really is an excellent beer, easily in my top 10.
