September 10, 2017

309/2127)  Home:  Quad by New Limburg Brewing Company of Ontario:  **1/2;  a 10.6% Belgian style quadrupel, bottle conditioned;   my favourite of the series;  nose of dark fruit, mildly yeasty;  warming alcohol, rich dark fruit,  mild spice, dark sugar, though not as sweet as many a quad

St. Arnoldus (of Soissons) is on the label.  He is said to have stopped a plague by brewing and promoting a low alcohol beer.  He is the patron saint of hop pickers and brewers and is often depicted holding a mash rake.
