Weyerbacher Blasphemy is a Belgian Style Quadrupel (Quad). They retired this barrel aged version of QUAD, but it came back in 2011 in this 750 ml cork and caged version. There is no date on this so I am not sure if this is the 2011 or 2012 vintage. (grrr) In any case whether it has been aged almost 1 year or 2 this has aged very well. I really had no idea what to expect from this and it has been a total surprise. Maybe a little thin in the mouth-feel, and the carbonation could have used a little more zip, but that is about all the negative I have for this beer. Lovely notes of cherries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, sweet caramel malts, alcohol heat and dark fruits. I don’t feel like this is the greatest Belgian Quad in the world, or the greatest barrel aged beer in the world, but I am liking how all the elements of this particular beer are coming together… and that is making this one of the greatest beers in the world. Well, at least it is for me right now.
