Pours clear, gold in color with one inch head. Taste is apples, pears, honey, hay, and white wine. Complex, slick, and full bodied. Really tasty sipper. Glad I found this. I would certainly pick this one up again.

Hazy, opaque deep red-orange in color. Minimal white head that has some retention and leaves little lacing. Rich maltiness in aroma, with caramel, toffee. Strong fruity esters, with slight notes of the wine barrel. Slightly spicy. Delicious and complex in taste. Again, a rich maltiness with spice, dark fruit, caramel, and toast. The slight barrel notes add a nice complexity, without taking anything away from the base flavors of the quad. Medium-light in body with moderate carbonation. Not overly sweet or bitter with a slightly dry finish. Overall, a wonderful and complex version of a quad.

Excellent quad. Oddly it starts with an alcohol burn and then mellows to fruity nirvana. With fruity aftertaste sans alcohol. Slick mouthfeel. This 22 oz bottle indicates: best enjoyed by 5/2016 - so fully aged, and just in time. I commend Deschutes for willingness to reach out from their simple English style ale beginnings.
