Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Amber-copper colour with little head, which kinda sucked. Aroma of bubblegum, caramel and banana. Medium bodied. Started of sweet and fruity. Develops into a foamy beer. Finish was bitter and lasting with a medium alcoholic taste. Was OK but sort of underwhelming.

Botella. Presencia marrón con corona poco persistente. Aroma maltoso, levaduras y frutos secos. En boca es dulzona y alcohólica, con dejes de levadura acabando dulce y poco seca

Mainuh_man (258) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
Pours a clear brown with a big white head. Aroma: Nice bready malt. Sweet malt begin, middle is mild and warm alcohol with some hints of cantaloupe. Balances off with nice, mild hop bitter that numbs the tongue a bit. Medium bodied with a slick texture and average carbonation. Overall, a really nice, sweeter amber.

The novalty of the glass ruins the fine aroma and taste of this Belgium beer. It poors with a thick head butt has a great after taste.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2004
On-tap. "If you want to drink it out of a original Kwak glass, you have to leave your left shoe as a pledge! Those glasses are really expensive.” No, the bartender didn’t pull my leg. The downside of visiting a student pub, I’ll guess. I had my beer in a pilsener flute instead.

The colour is pale amber; the finger-thick foam is white and quite compact.

The smell is sourish with some lactose and some sort of hops.

The carbonation was rather strong and a little bit sticky. But at the same time very fresh and descending.

The taste is sourish and very refreshing. The liberal taste of malt is slowly replaced by a lactose-sweetness and bitter hops. Then, a fine body and a mild taste of aromatic hops emerge. There is a touch of wheat beer in the aftertaste with the combination of candy-sweetness and fruity, spicy hops.

Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Amber colour, big foamy head initially. Caramel, slightly burnt malt, raisin, date, syrup. More than medium sweetness, light bitterness. A regular Belgian, bit on the sweet side.
