Awesome Beer. Served in a yard-of-beer style glass with wooden holder, very nice amber color, full of caramel flavor with a spice finish. One of my very favorites.

33cl bottle poured into Kwak Glass. Served at Room temperature on the 06/06/2007. Colour: Golden Red, Amber, Burnt Sienna. Thick Off White - Baise coloued head that lasts for most of the experiance. Aroma: Light carmel with a hint of spice. Taste: Sour Background that leads to a sweet finish. Warm alcohol notes. Sharp fizz on the mouth at first but that dies down fast into a smooth textured finish. A pleasant experiance.

boto (2007) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 2, 2007
33cl bottle: This one pours a clear, amber color. There was a bit of an off-white head on it, and it lingers awhile. There is a constant fizzing coming from the bottom of the glass. The aroma isnít overly strong, yet it is very pleasant. I get some caramel, spices, fruits and a touch of breadiness. The taste is some caramel , toffee, fruits, some of the yeastiness, and a touch spicy. The flavors donít stand out, but blend nicely for a fine brew.

Tap at Silver Creek. Aroma of malt, some banana, alcohol definately prevelant in aroma. Taste was also quite alcoholic, malty, strongly hoped. Some citrus present as well. A decent brew. I would buy again.

Tasted it on draft in Ostende and on bottle at home. I have 3 different glasses for it. A good and not to strong tasting beer. Nice smell. Just be aware if you do not get the kwak in your face.
