Besides their excellent reputation for sensational Sour Ales, Wicked Weed are a versatile crew, brewing awesome beers like Oh My Quad, a massive 13.4% Barrel-Aged Belgian-style Grand Cru Quadrupel. But it’s not just a strong beer, OMQ also shows off amazing complexity from the deep brown almost plum-colour body and ring of tan foam, to the deeply yeast, malty, cherry and raisin fruitiness.
This majestic mix of classic estery, peppery banana-and-clove Belgian yeast and sweet candied fruit evokes cognac and spiced rum. The sticky-sweet texture is pure Belgian dark strong ale with syrupy candi sugar backed by a spicy, almost medicinal bitterness that cuts the sweetness perfectly to deliver a long, boozy finish.
