bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2006
Light brown colour, huge beige head (maybe because of the strange glass?). Caramel malty aroma, flavour of wood, alcohol, fruity hops.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2008
pours dark dark orange with thin tan head, smells of malt, yeast and spice. The flavor is beautifully malty with a spicy fruity finish. This is one of the tastiest ales i’ve had.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2013
Bready/yeasty, sweet and a rich malt in the aroma. Characteristic belgian yeast. A nice looking beer, mahogany color with long lasting white head. Caramel, malt, belgian yeast and a mild hoppiness, with abrupt alcohol aftertaste. Pretty clean tasting. Above average carbonation. Medium bodied.

Batavi (305) - 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.

Very nice beer, was served in a pub in a Kwak glass (which looks like something from a lab)

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - APR 19, 2003
Dark amber colour, almost no head (just a thin lace of foam). The aroma is sour (citrus) and quite sweet (caramel). The flavour is too sweet (caramel and toffee and a lot of sugar), quite sour. Spicy aftertaste. I didn't really like this beer...

zaf (302) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2012
aroma: caramel, bread, alcohol, apparenza: amber, hazy, frothy, gusto: medium sweetness, lightly bitter, palato: medium body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish, è stata una delle birre,insieme alla triple karmeliet (sua sorella),che mi ha fatto avvicinare al mondo della birra belga di qualità..che dire,è eccellente..al naso predominano sentori dolci, come frutta secca, cereali, floreale in ogni caso. Carbonazione adeguata che non nasconde il gusto. Si lascia bere a grandi sorsate poichè molto corposa,densa e dal finale dolce e prolungato.. non ho riscontrato una componente luppolata eccessiva,poichè il malto domina in assoluto..

Pours beautiful amber with big beige head. Aroma is fruity with plums and raisins and malty with caramel. Taste is sweet and syrupy with lots of spices. Caramel, slight bitterness. Alcohol very well hidden. Very good.

Delicious, Served in a black 25 oz bottle. This belgian brew pours a dark amber, the head is a thin lace of tan that sticks to the glass. The smell is orange peels, vanilla, and honey. As I let this beer warm up a little from the fridge more flavors and aromas began to come out. The taste of this beer is smoothe and creamy. It tastes of honey, fruit (banana and grapes), it is sweet but not overwhelming. I definatly recommend this beer. It would pair well with a grilled steak to contrast some of the fruity flavors, as well as a bananas foster to help bring out some of the banana and caramel flavors in the beer.
