Yep! - Same here man!
I've got plenty, so I'm looking forward to drinking more and hopefully being wrong.
3-4 cases out at HEB Far West.
Finally got to crack into one of my two bombers a buddy got for me while at work.
Enjoyable beer for sure, and i agree with what others say. A large beer indeed,
not used to such a big beer- but i could tell it was quality! loved the dark fruits!
The 3 reviews seem damn good so far, even though i couldn't read one..
We all have our opinions, if its not for you then that is fine. I for one love it. My review coming soon.
I'm not a huge Quad fan, but holy hell this beer is extremely drinkable. Like others have said very "fruity". I kind of feel like I'm getting my daily dose of fruits.
Just finished my second, and it was a different experience from the first. Definitely got dark fruits this time. I did make sure to let it warm up a bit more, which pulled up a little more booziness as well, which endeared it to me even more. Also was working on the garden all day yesterday, so I may have been a bit clogged up. Stupid dirt.
Enjoying my first, and I am a big quad fan. Very yummy! Might have to try and track down MORE.
I think I might try and find another 6er for myself as well.
Dark Fruits. Dark Fruits. Dark Fruits!
Prob my favorite American made quad, and above some other notable foreign quads.
Unsure if ill get any, but if i dont, you guys that get tons, ill take a sixxer
Specs RR has 8 cases. Get your lazy ass over there!
Just so yall know ...while having my second D13 I was prepaing to grill chicken thighs that had been marinating all day and I was going to make a butter BBQ sauce mop for them. After tasting this delicious beer I decided to not drink 6oz of one bottle and added it to my chicken thigh BBQ mop. Let me tell you ,... the maltiness and the fruity flavors of this beer make the absolute best bbq chicken thigh mop of all time. Say what you will but we dined tonight and it was awesome .. and I drank two more bombers on top of it .. .all time good night.
I like the idea of this A LOT. Maybe I'll get another six-pack if I see one.
Im telling you man the flavors work PERFECT for a mop .. unreal flavor on the coals with this mop .. seriously good.
Hope you enjoy.
It's not exactly Rochefort but its pretty good and drinkable for a lot less money than the top quads out there.
After a few, I'm going to say that it's on par with Sixth Glass for my favorite domestic Quad. I vote for this to be a full-time beer.
Believe it or not, This is the first Belgian I've never drain poured - I couldn't stand Rochefort 6, 8 or 10, La Fin du Monde, etc.
Delirium Tremens and DR13 are about the only ones I can hang with - I'm open to suggestions however on others.
I guess it's just different personal taste. Have you tried St. Bernardus?
Kidding aside, St. Bernardus Prior 8 is the first beer that completely blew my mind. Then, Abt 12 splattered my brains on the wall.
Nah, never had the pleasure - can it be found here in Houston?
WHAT WHAT WHAT.
Like all quads, this just isn't my bag. It got better as it warmed and it certainly wasn't bad, but I feel no reason to rave about it.
Anywhere in Austin got this on tap? I'd really like to try it, but I'm not too keen on buying a 6-pack.
I'm kinda a quad snob, so I get the feeling the entire time I'm drinking it, even if it's exceptional, I'm going to be thinking about how much Rochefort 10 I could've bought, lol.
Looking at the majority of the reviews, I wonder if it's a great beer but just deviates from the traditional style. It looks like, for the most part, quad snobs think it's meh to ok while those who don't normally have quads as a go-to style appear to love it. I'll probably end up with 2 6'ers and a couple of bombers and have no problem handing off a bottle or 2 to you if you can't find it on tap.
I was curious if this comparison would surface. I'm a huge fan of both Sixth Glass and BBQ. Outside of those two and Ommegang 3P, can't say that I've enjoyed an American quad. Looking forward to this one.
Tell that to those friggin whiney ass uverse customers.
not a huge fan of Quads. Think westy is as over rated as pliney, but appreciate a well crafted beer. This one is ok. nothing worth raving about by any means. but decent. it would easily sit on shelves and never be bought for this price if it wasnt a divine reserve... and then they would discontinue it due to lack of sales, imo.
Hey, I'm a UVerse customer!
Yeah, but you dont live in my area and complain.
Wish I did - I'd get you to hook me up!
Ya, lots of places.
I will probably try this at Draught House tonight... Along with a certain other special baby, if they still have it. I'm curious what I'll think... I wouldn't describe myself as a quad snob, but I love St. Bernardus/Barnaby 12 and Rochefort 10, but thought that The Sixth Glass was a bit overbearing. Granted, I had it like a year+ ago, but still. Think I drainpoured the last two ounces :/.
For tap, both flying saucer's seem to have it last I checked. Strongly suggest trying on tap, and then aging a bottle (they're literally all over the city in stores) for about 2-3 year minimum.

Yes, but $3 vs $6-7 for Rochefort 10 per 12 oz. is a nice trade IMO. It is missing some of the bready flavors I like in a quad, but I do enjoy it, and at 1/2 the price of a true Trappist I really enjoy it.
Seems to be plenty of DR13 around Dallas now. Total Wine and Spec's got theirs today, limits at both places.
Any places in Houston that still have this in sixers? BM me with more info plz!
