3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours a nice amber with ecru head. A little more mild than other belgians. Doesn’t seem to be quite as complex as other belgians, but still good. There was a distinct musty sweetness that the Kwak had. Overall, I have to try some more to get really used to the style.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cork, sour apricot and cocoa in the nose. Little clouds of particulates in a fairly clear, amber body with decent tan head that recedes to cover. Apricot, lemon, peach, some earthy, musty, woody cobwebs in the flavour to balance the overall candy sweetness. Fairly strong effervescence with medium body that finished quite dry and well-attenuated, but little clouds of protein/yeast are distracting if not quite disconcerting. Bottle (Bieropholie - Jun. 2004).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty nice amber-colored belgian ale with fruity and caramelly notes and a good hoppy finish. For what it costs though, I probably won’t ever drink it again.
