Rio Reserva tasting notes
Rio Reserva is a Quadrupel from De Struise. It has a very malty nose with dark fruits and bourbon. Bourbon is also very present in taste, along with spices and yeast, and alcohol is present but not overwhelming.
Quadrupels or Belgian Dark Strong Ales are very complex Belgian ales, sometimes connected with an Abbey or a Trappist monastery. Its appearance range from deep amber to reddish brown. Aromas are rich, with spiciness and malt presence, and hints of fruits. Flavors are as complex as aromas, with malt presence, fruits and some alcohol, and a dry finish. It is more malty than a Dubbel and not as bitter as a Tripel.
