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.

Amber. off white head.Banan aroma, some yeast and some other fruits. Fruity and yeasty flavor with a quite mild finish. Ok but not much more...

750 ml. Kwak Kwak, I get the desire to migrate south. This is a nice big belgian ale. Got everything you might want in such a beer.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2005
Powerful beer. Strong, thick nose with candied sugar notes. Backed up in the mouth with more thickness, high powered toffee and a touch of spice. A little burn in the finish unbalanced the beer a bit but still a nice drop.

bottle reads "best before 1/1/2007.so the kwak poured ice tea like in color with loads of bubbles and little "floaties".i got the usual big white belgian head.as is left the glass i recieved some nice lacing.i gathered citurs,and caramel in the aroma.the flavor had a mix up of grapefruit,belgian yeast,candy,and caramel.mouthfeel was a bit acidic and on the medium side.this is one of those beers that needs to sit in te trappist glass for a bit to calm the acid/carbonation down a bit.overall this is a nice belgian brew.

Not bad. Has a bit of butterscotch and yeast in the nose. Pours out to a cloudy amber-gold color with finely beaded white head. Starts out with some toffee-like malty sweetness and ends with a light alcohol sensation. A few light fruit and spice notes, but nothing strong.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2011 it’s a good Belgian product, but somehow, I just don’t care. I’ve rated it better than some things I definitely prefer, but It just tastes rather generic to me. Too well blended. It’s a darker brown than I recall, with a grassy heineken-esque hop scheme.
