Pours a pretty chill hazed amber with a beige head that leaves frosty lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma is bready malt, candy apple fruitiness, banana & clove. Taste is similar with more bitterness than Belgian quads. Sweet with prominent alcohol. The sweetness is a mite too heavy & slightly cloying. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, slick, oily & mouth coating with warmth & a peppery prickle. A nice American craft brewery twist example on an Old World brew.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a lightly cloudy orange color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet yeast and fruit. The taste is sweet malt and fruit.

From a 12oz can, bought recently at The Flight Center in Nashua. Unsure of any canning date or best-by info.

Poured into a small snifter, it is a muted chestnut hue, with slow, scattered carbo. Head is light tan to off-white , and the fine bubbles mostly cling to the edges. Has an aroma heavy on the malts, with some fruity, winey notes lurking about. Body is a good medium, and there's some light prickle which does not detract.

Like the nose, the flavor leans a lot on maltiness. Has some caramel and light toffee lending a decent level of sweetness. There's also a solid amount of fruity activity, with a bit of vinous, grapey notes, plus a hint of plum and black cherry. Belgian sugars are noted in the dryish finish. Not the best Quad I've ever had, but quite solid nonetheless. Prosit!!

On tap at the Lark, it only had a minimal head that didn't last and was sweet and malty, full of fruity notes that mixed in well with the Belgian sugars, alcohol and dominant malt sweetness and chewiness. A slow sipper, I'll need to revisit this as it was one of the last beers of the night so my attention to detail had slipped. I did enjoy it though, hence the positive review.

I don't try a lot of quads, so I jumped at the chance to ride this pony. Pours a dark amber with a cream colored head. Nose is banana bread, black pepper, Belgian yeast, bubble gum, and holiday spice.

The flavor starts malty, then is doused in alcohol, and shows late complexity. Texture is stiff at first but then falters a bit in the second part of the sip. Major players in the flavor include biscuit, figs and prunes, woodsmoke, allspice, and honeydew. Definitely interesting and worth a try but probably a step behind my go to Quad, Three Philosophers. Cool name though.

DATE: April 21, 2018... OCCASION: celebrating Michael's first pitching win with a beer whose name aptly describes the full-count, bases-loaded strike he threw.... it was close enough... pours a respectable amount of bubbles spinning through a darker-than-expected bronze body, leaning more to the abt than the quad... a ring of off-white head shows well, encircling a smear of haze... enough head for such a powerful beer... plum, heavy bread malts, peach, allspice, grapefruit, melon, graham cracker, light cinnamon, banana and some sharp cheese... quite a complex suggestion... first sip stings the tongue, whispers through the teeth, and revives at the throat... light to medium-bodied, fresh and mildly bitter... the citrus--orange, mostly--mingles with licorice and cracker to develop an easily drinkable, potently subtle ale... as far from Belgium as San Fran is, the 21st Amendment folks got this down right....

Poured from can. Nice malty flavor. Get some Belgian yeast flavor as well, to begin. The part that I had a problem with is a vegetal aftertaste that would linger, especially after it warmed up. Like asparagus. Couldn't get past that. Started off great...ended poorly.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours the color of honey with a mild haze but still has some clarity to it along with some bubbles racing upwards; white head that fades leaving solid retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have a nice amount of sweet malts along with some dark fruits and some subtle hints of butter frosting. Some yeast notes giving it some subtle banana and bubblegum notes. The flavors basically follow the nose for the most part. More hints of banana and bubblegum. Some raisins and plum in the mix. Solid malt backbone. Yeasts do their thing. Nice sweetness, but nothing crazy. Mild warmth in the finish. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's fluffy, smooth and dangerously drinkable.

This is a nice brew. It might not match up with examples of the style from overseas, but it's still a nice brew nonetheless. Nice flavors. It's enjoyable and fun to drink. I really like it.
