Beer Wednesday – Weyerbacher Quad

Happy Beer Wednesday!

For two weeks in a row here, I’m happy to be reviewing Belgian beers. This week, it’s Weyerbacher’s Quad.

This beer is a strong quad, at 11.8% ABV, and you could tell. The color was a clear, clean amber/gold, but the flavor was super malty (as it should be) with a sweetness to accompany that. I got maybe some fruit flavors, but they were quickly washed away, because the beer was strong, and tasted that way. The alcoholic finish was less than perfect, and it disappointed me some.

I guess I wanted it to be less alcoholic and more rich, but the mouthfeel was a little thin, and the alcohol at the end was too clear for me to really love this brew. It wasn’t the best quad I’ve had, but it certainly wasn’t the worst beer I’ve had either. Am I whining? Maybe a little, but it’s my blog, I can do that!

Overall, I’m a little disappointed to be rating this beer as a 3/6 on my six-pack scale. A little better balance, a hint richer texture, and it would be really good, but as it sits. . . meh.
