La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged Batch 25 - BA Quadrupel / 11% vol / 37.5 cl.
The Batch register about Batch 25:
A symbolic special batch; the 25 th Oak Aged batch during the 25th anniversary of La Trappe Quadrupel.
The head of this clear amber-brown beer, like that of batch 24, remains fragile, so that it rests on the beer like a thin silk blanket. The scent of vanilla, followed by that of almond, honey, caramel, oak and malt are emphasized by this. A fresh scent, reminiscent of white wine (floral and slightly acidic), clearly predominates.
The first taste clearly gives the impression of La Trappe Quadrupel, after which the fresh and fruity wine aromas clearly follow, and pass into an alcoholic warming aftertaste. This aftertaste is additionally colored by the aromas of the Kirsch, with a hint of cherries. The oak wood is also clearly but modestly present in the aftertaste, giving the beer a slightly smoky character.
Although the carbonation is quite low, it fits well with her desirable serving temperature of 16°-18°. This is how the aromas of this particularly soft and delicate beer come into their own.
This batch was blended in August 2016.
