UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 Copper hue with no head. Fruity and sweet aroma with hoppy tones. Sweet flavour with fruity tones and low bitterness.

Gave us a bit weissbier-feeling. Strange. But a very good, malty beer.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - NOV 23, 2001
beautiful golden orange color with a sustained creamy head. rather sweet taste but it had some sourand citrus bite that prevented it from being overwhelmingly sugary.

Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 22, 2001
It has a nice amber colour and a creamy head. Aroma of pollen, flowers and underwood. Fruity with a rather dry a slightly disappointing finish.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2001
UPDATED: APR 30, 2007 Bottled. Caramel and herbal aroma. Amber color, irregular off-white head, few lace. Sweet, caramel, herbal, light bready, medium body, alcoholic. Start plain and too sweet but futher on it gets more interesting.

Kwak is a nice beer, but itís a real experience when you drink it from the original glass. It can get very messy if you want to drink it too fast.

Not as richly alcoholic as I might have preferred, yielding to a caramely sweetness that could have used some carbonation to temper it. One dimensional and blah. Perhaps better out of the cool tall Belgian glass.

This is a great beer, but the taste isnít that special, the original glass makes it all good.
