Belgian-Style Quadrupel

Belgian-Style Quadrupel Beer

Belgian-Style Quadrupels are a type of strong Belgian ale that typically has an alcohol content of 10% or higher. Often hailed as the pinnacle of Belgian brewing, quadrupels are complex beers that are deep amber or brown in colour and have a full, rich body.

Although they can be enjoyed year-round, they are particularly well-suited for winter drinking. Belgian quadrupels often have a sweet, malty flavour with hints of dark fruits like plums or raisins. If you’re looking for a beer that is both complex and flavorful, then a Belgian-style quadrupel is the perfect choice.
