3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 Pours a gorgeous amber orange colour with an impressive thick off white head. Aroma was quite sweet and somewhat malty with notes of yeast. Citrus, caramel, spice notes as well. I was happy to try it. Amazing and clever glass.....way to big to conceal on your way out of the bar.

This been for sure has an interesting traditional way of serving the beer. FO you that do not know, you place it in a small version of a yard glass with a wooden structure holding the glass in. There is a small bulb at the bottom the the glass. I was told the beer is called "quack" because if you drink it and do not turn the bulb you get a nice spash in the face from and air bubble (similar relsuts of a boot). Other than the glass the beer was not that bad IT had a great color, and head on top. The flavor was very malty, but the beer was clean. I had a good hops finish.

Tap at Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Served in the idiosyncratic glass Kwak is known for, which added to the experience. The taste is quite sweet, and the first sip reminds me of Tripel Karmeliet. There is a slight taste of alcohol in the back, not exactly pleasant. All in all not bad. I prefer Tripel Karmeliet, if that even is a sensible comparison.

This beer has a deep red colour with a thick head, which looks great. Aromas of plums and chocolate with faint notes of alcohol and yeast. The flavour is full, nicely roasted malt with a good hoppy note. The sweetness is not intrusive and the bitterness in the finish just about right - the alcohol is really well hidden!

Drank this in old Tolkien’s Pub on Catherine’s Square in Zagreb back in 2004, this is only the second time in a bar in Ba?anija, Istria. Amber with small but strong off white head. Peach ice tea aroma, biscuit and alcohol notes. Refreshing, sparkling, sweet, alcoholic warmth. Sweet syrupy finish, full body, medium carbonation. An old classic Belgian.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2005 The Kwak glass is so spiffy looking I had to buy one today, with the beer to go along. Pours a beautiful clear orange copper with a large foamy beige head shooting up the neck and dissipating gradually. I had fun watching the small bubbles rise from the bulb and up the unique shape of the glass. The aroma is of sweet toasty caramel with hints of nuts (peanut butter lightly makes an appearance). The roasted malts are emphasized in the flavor with lots of caramel and honey. Very smooth palate with a bitter and mildly alcoholic aftertaste. Leaves sparse lacing as you drink it. This beer is truly an experience of its own. I really enjoyed it!

Bottle. Lots of malt in the aroma. Pours a clear amber, a brown tinted head. Low carbonation. A smooth sweet malt, with a faint bitterness at the end. Exceedingly pleasant. Was suprised at the 8%, usually you can smell/taste some of the alcohol, in this one there is none. SMOOOOTTHHH.

Dark golden color, with a foamy, stable thin beige head. Fantastic deep aroma, which is really sweet, malt, chocolate and fruits, Taste is really deep, sweet, full-bodied, bitter enough. Caramel, coffee, fruits, malt, hops, alcohol... genius.

Creamy-beige head that dissappears quickly but leaves a good lacing. Sweet aroma with caramel, yeast and bread touches. Dark orange and sparkling color and a medium body. The alcohol presence is very smooth
