dominated on the nose by sour cherries that are quite enticing, as is brown colour and ample beige head of noteworthy retention, though with negligible lacing. Flavourwise, I found it complex, yet overly sweaty and the cherry flavours became sweet but in an artificial sort of way. Still nice, but not enlightening enough for me! Though creamier and smoother than the other quads, I found it insufficiently drying and overly boozy despite a lower ABV. Was it good? Hell yes! Was it worth the hype? Not for me. Grade: B+

Strong, spicy undertones, pleasantly complex

Deliciously complex and full bodied quad, chimay blue-esque

Sweet but not overly. Very strong but balanced by the sweetness

Dark, thick, rich, malty. When Consumed while eating a piece of dark chocolate, it tastes like chocolate covered cherries. This decadent beer should be consumed in small quantities.

Dark, heavy and strong with a harsh taste

The 2% addition of a Kriek to an already full bodied ale is quite literally the cherry on top. Definitely not one to have several of in a night, but splitting a large bottle amongst friends with good conversation on a cool night is always a pleasure.

Tasty! Doesn't taste strong and has a nice warm alcohol finish. Creamy mouthfeel. We love this beer!
