MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Pours a bright amber/orange color with adequate offwhite head. Malty aroma with hints of fruit. Pleasant aftertaste if a bit metallic. Nice.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Rose caramel colored with adaquete thin head. Plum raisen and chocolate aroma. A great subtle flavor. Mixes malt, fruit very well. Nice earthy aftertaste. Perfect carbonation. Better as it warms.

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2003
In mine I noticed hints of oats and some what of a bread like taste? The body was almost a light chocolate color, and I agree it was slighty sweet with a citrusy/dry finish. Very smooth and quite drinkable, this was a very good ale.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2003
A clear orange tinted beer with a beige head and lively carbonation. A sweet doughy musty smell like a cross between a pastry shop and a basement. Flavors of yeast and caramel, some specialty malts (40 L. Crystal?) Has a great body, good mouthfeel. Dangerously easy to drink, even at 8%.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2003
Deep amberish color with a solid helping of head. A sweet molases aroma with a bitter pancake syrup feel to the body. The 8 impresses for i did not expect it.

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Dark copper color wth good head. Alcohol hidden well as I just realized it was 8%. Has a candyish, yeasty, sweet flavor to it with matching aromatic qualities. A good Belgium style beer.

Laugesen (5) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2003 does not count
A good belgian ale with a full-bodied and strong sweet taste of toffee and malt.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Amber colored, small, fairly long lasting head. Caramel and malt aroma, subtle though. Somewhat sweet taste, but again too subtle. Nice mouthfeel and masking of 8%. Wasnt bad but I was underwhelmed.

(Bottle) Love the presentation glass that Kwak is served in. Quite original. Good balance of flavor and complexity in this Belgian.
