Appearance

The Quad pours a murky chestnut brown hue that shines copper when held to the light. It’s topped by finger-thick cap fizzy white froth that vanishes almost immediately. A few droplets of residue cling to the sides and a thin ring of fine bubbles rounds the glass.

Aroma

The aroma is faint but wafts the nose with nutty yeast and a hint of dark fruit.

Flavor

The palate begins with bready malt mixed with dark fruits that transition to spicy phenols of clove and pepper. Its finish is sweet with a taste of banana, candied dark fruit, and a hint of booze.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth with a body that’s a shade over medium with matching carbonation. Finishes with a moderate warming sensation.

Overall

Its appearance is lackluster and the faint aroma disappears all too quickly. But the palate is fine and its feel supports it nicely, even if it could use more carbonation. High alcohol content is managed well but this brew is still a sipper.

Baby Horse isn’t going to knock your socks off, but it’s not too bad, considering it’s a canned Quad. And it does scratch that itch for a Belgian.
