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.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 For my taste this beer is not good, complex and incomprensible complex aroma and taste, very beautiful presentation in glass but the aromatic characteristic disliked me.

Clear light brown amber pour with a full slightly tan head. Bready sweet malt smell with a hint of toffee and caramel. Yeast hiding in the background. Really inviting aroma for totally digging in, so I will. Kinda sweet but nice caramel malty taste. Dark brown bread and a little bit of a hoppy aftertaste. Medium body with also average carbonation tickling the tastebuds. Me likey!

Very tasty beer, the glass makes it special, it’s fun when someone drinks his first kwak, and gets a ’kwak’..

Not as complex as some belgians but lets face it. This beer gets points for the way cool glass. Sweet and candy-like this beer has an evident alcoholic content.

Bottle @ moortgat Arnhem in een mooi origineel glas. Bier heeft een koperkleur en een normale schuimkraag. Smaakt naar caramel,banaan fruitig, een lekker bier.

Intense and gentle altogether/ typical Belgian. When foam dissolves beautiful layer of it still remains on top of the beer. Not rich taste by something like grape stems, enjoyable. GF loves the taste :)
