dexzappa (2) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015 does not count
A well crafted if a bit too sweet of a Belgian pale ale. Booze isn’t terribly well hidden, but that doesn’t take away from an inviting flavor with plenty of sweetness and the devilish ability to get yourself into trouble if you don’t stop after one or two.

Butelka, warka do 07/01/2017. Ladna piana, prawie biala, gesta, brudzaca szklo, stosunkowo szybko opadajaca do obraczki. Samo piwo klarowne, ciemno bursztynowe. Aromaty to przede wszystkim slody. Nie ma jakiejs mocnej stajni ani nic z tych rzeczy drozdzowych, niemniej cos w stylu ciasta czuc. Ze slodow niewatpliwie karmelowe i nieco chlebowe aromaty. sa tez nuty miodu. troche przypraw, ale malo jak na styl. Owoce sladowe, na granicy percepcji. W smaku czuc wlasciwie pelen odpowiednik aromatu. jest slodko, prawie ze zbyt slodko - na szczescie nie przekracza tej granicy. Bardzo hmmmm czyste piwo, w sensie brak innych posmakow jak dla mnie - to poniekad wada. Goryczka sladowa raczej i o charakterze przyprawowym. Ciala niezbyt wiele. Wysycenie srednie, moze nawet ciut mniej (choc ma taki charakter, ze na jezyku je czuc). Alkohol ukryty wysmienicie. Wlasciwie jedyne co mozna zarzucic temu piwu to brak jakiejs wiekszej zlozonosci, drugie pod rzad byloby nudnawe. Mimo to - bardzo dobry klasyk.

lmastr (35) - Norma, ITALY - MAR 7, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2015 0,75cl in the typical Kwak glass. A top class level: aroma of yeasts, looks a very nice shade of red, light carbonation, sweet malt ends, drinkable but full of taste. Love it.

Jultsu (241) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2015
August Von Trappe, Tampere. Autenttisesta lasista. Punertava lager, ok viipyvä vaahto. Maku hyvin mieto ja laimea, mehumainen, ei kuitenkaan tylsä tai tunkkainen. Aromikin on keskivertoa intensiivisempi. Jälkimaku hedelmäisen makea. Ok, mutta ei jälleen kerran omaan makuun.

Pelzky (74) - Szczecin, POLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Pours dark amber with tall, white and stable head. Decent lacing. Quite fruity aroma. There are bananas, dried fruits, caramel, subtle note of spices and bubble gum. Sweet taste, long finish, slightly alcoholic. Smooth texture, medium carbonation.

Batavi (79) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2015 33 cl. Uitgeschonken in origineel Pauwel Kwak koetsier glas met houten standaard. Mooi amber koperkleurig bier met volle beige schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt. De geur is zoet en kruidig met Belgische gist. De smaak is zoet en en vol specerijen, met tonen van karamel, bruine kandij, kaneel, vanille, witte peper en zacht bittere hop. De afdronk is zoet en kruidig, het alcoholpercentage van 8,4% is duidelijk aanwezig, maar wel op een aangename verwarmende manier. De Pauwel Kwak is een heerlijk klassiek Belgisch bier van brouwerij Bosteels wat je het liefste drinkt uit het speciale en originele Pauwel Kwak bierglas. Blijft een lekker en uniek Belgisch bier.
