Buxton Brewery Quadrupel (11%)

Buxton have been working their way through a range of beer based on traditional Belgian brewing techniques for some moths now.
From what I gather everything has been based on their Patersbier, a beer that I personally wasn’t overly keen on, and here we are with their Quad.
And it’s a decent take in the style if a little sweet.
There’s candy canes and toffee, spun sugar and honey, it’s all thick and sticky and glues itself to you with its boozy heat warming your chest.
But it’s lacking balance.
There’s not the sharpness necessary to counteract the sweetness and so, where a good Belgian Quad would have its sweetness tempered by a little red leaf litter hopping and some yeast earthiness, Buxton’s missed the mark and leaves you feeling like you’ve eaten too much candy floss.
