Carbonation intensely wanted out of both bottles I tried. Flavor was spicy, tangy, fruity, malty and strong. Color was deep, rich red/brown. Liked it so much I had to have a second at Flying Pie Pizza.

I enjoyed this one. The head lasted for ages. I was worried that i might under rate it as mine had fairly large amounts of floating matter suspended in it. I was trying to hard to avoid it. It wasn’t too strong tasting for me either, which i find some belgians to be. I want the Kwak glass - it looks fantastic!

Wat een geweldig bier is dit zeg. Zowel geen schuimkraag maar het kwakglas, de smaak en het bouquette maken dit voor mij een van mijn favorieten.

From bottle. Lovely Belgian. Aroma is clean and sweet but without any dominate smell. Palate yeasty, as expected, with sweet malt. No sense of alcohol even though it’s 8%. Brings back memories of drinking this in Amsterdam.

Roodbruin bier (meer rood dan bruin) met aardige schuimkraag. Geur is ietwat zoetig met tonen van mout en caramel. Smaak is ook zoetig met tonen van mout, caramel en gras (!). Lekker biertje.

Copper brown, foaming light beige thick head, slighlty lace. Yeast in nose at the start of the glass, but at finish also flowery and malty aromas. Sweet, yeasty, spicy aromatic, some alcohol, a bit sour, dry and mild hop aroma. Aftertaste is dry & sweet, a bit yeast-like and quite long.

I sampled a traditional corked and caged 750 ml bottle, which yielded a clear copper ale with a very nice looking bright white head that left great lacing. There’s a roasty, caramel nose with a hint of orange rind and alcohol. This is a medium- to full-bodied beer with a sticky, sweet malty backbone that is well-balanced by some lively carbonation and a long-lasting hop finish with a peek of alcohol dryness. Mid-palate flavors of dried cherry, raisin and plum, with a slight peppery bite and some of the orange rind character revealed in the aroma. Another fine Belgian adventure in beer.

Mörkröd med ordentlig skumkrona. Omedelbar sötma, med lång karamell och malt. Styrkan märks inte alls. Någon tomhet i sena eftersmaken.

Mooi robijnrood, prima schuim. Ruikt lekker zoet. Smaakt zoet, lekker, vol in de mond.

Pours gold with medium head. Also, lots and lots of ’floaties’...so many that I had to pour beer through a strainer so I could finish. I’ve had beers with ’floaties’ before, but this was unbelievable. An enjoyable beer with mild taste. Went down easy. Finished a 750ml bottle in just under 30 minutes.
