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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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%.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
