In the US, one of our regular flagship beers was a quadruple called Baby Tree (long story). This one is our best yet, tweaked, possibly perfected, deep ruby with marzipan notes, green apple and the surprising drinkability “quads" are known for. This is one of a series of three Belgian beers in time for Christmas - a “Single”, “Dubbel" and a “Quadruple”. They are inspired by the great Trappist and Abbey beers of Belgium representing a fantasy lineup of our own imaginary Abbey range (we’re not monks, obviously, but we did have a Trappist monk as our apprentice brewer in America). They diverge slightly from the static styles but embody classic character. All three beers were made using identical water profiles and a blend of two of our favourite monastic yeast strains, so they will make an interesting and companionable drinking progression.
