Nice Belgian with a big body and alcohol content to back. Suprisingly smooth without the quad/tripel taste.

Espuma abundante en principio que permanece en una fina capa, color cobrizo con chispeantes burbujas subiendo constantemente por la cerveza, se aprecia un olor agradable en nariz, en boca el sabor es dulce por la malta y agradable, regusto sabroso.

nihtila (1609) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
6.7.2014. Red colour, clear. Aroma has red berries, yeast, caramel. Taste has raisins, caramel, orange, alcohol. Quite simple and not very strong taste, feels overrated.

Kwak is a well known beer abroad, even if it is more commercialised I still recommend this one because it’s taste is so great! and the glass that goes with it is so special to drink it with.

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.

Great beer. Rich on tastes and powerful in the palate. Great traditional, belgian beer.

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.
