Pours into a goblet a rich deep burnt orange with a well defined sticky half finger slight off white head that never completely settles,nice rich clarity of color.I pick up some phenols and fruity esters in the nose but somewhat light in nature.Dark fruits and candied sugar mixed with yeasty phoneols on the palate,quite spicy in the finish,not overly sweet wich is a good thing.Quite heavy handed in the spice/phenol department but it has it's qualities.

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 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 the 12 oz can (!?!) in a snifter. This decent little ale pours a lightly
muddled brownish amber with a nice head of white foam that subsides to a
thick ring, thin light layer, and showcases some nice sudsy lacing. Nose of
strong peppery alcohol, sweet candy sugar, light breaded notes, and subtle
fruit notes with a touch of herbal spice. Flavors hit a higher note with a mulled
peach and light yeasty bread flavor tossed into a light Belgian style spice with
a touch of peppery hops and light cherry notes. Nice mouth feel; medium light
body, medium light carbonation, and a lightly dry sweet candy touched finish.

Overall a solid brew, a touch outside of the boundaries of the norm, but solid.
Hey, for a quad in a can it is a surprise.

Cheers

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.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark honey color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of dark fruits, spices. Taste is alcohol, malts, sugar, spices, gets sweeter as it warms. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is decent, but a bit to sweet for my liking.

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.

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.

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.

Pours a dark amber honey color with thick white head and lots of lacing after the head dissipates.Nose is malty ,yeasty and sweet. Taste follows nose with peppery spice and a shot of alcohol. Looks and smells like a quad and mostly tastes like one,almost. Better than expected from a can. A respectable attempt at the style.
