I think itís just a very tasty and easy going beer. Itís sweet, but also has a sour yeastiness to it giving it more balance and complexity. Together with a very mild bitter finish with fruits and malts itís just a very refreshing and easy to drink beer. Comes with a very special glass when ordered in the bar/pub.

Not much aroma - smells of mashing, sweet malts and caramel. The looks is unique, not does it only come in a glass that canít stand on its foot - which is really stupid - but its beautiful copper red/brown with white head and the bubbles revealed in the high thin glass. The taste is sweet, malty caramel. Misses some bitterness and gets a bit boring in the long run.

Pours a thin white head that disappears by the third sip. Color is great, a nice coppery brown. Nice malty taste that stays at the roof of the mouth. Its good.

Bottle. Pours a really nice amber color. Strong aromas of whole grain bread, molasses, canned mushrooms. Its something else, I like it. Taste starts very sweet, caramel and bread, slight kick from the alcohol. Sticky aftertaste. This is not going to be a winner for me.

Kwak is a true experience. It is neither the strongest, heaviest or spiciest of Belgians, but there is a thickness to it and a real diversity of flavors. Thereís a licorice undertone that I love as a Sambuca man, and also a really gentle carbonation. Best when served in a short yard glass.

Pours amber with a tanned head. aroma is definitely "belgian", sweet, yeasty and bready. taste is unusual.. metallic, minerally, some cherry, and a high carbonation. quite dry, plenty of fizz in the mouth, and a bitter finish. found it nice, but a little odd!
