Loved this Beer. Poured a lovely dark golden color, with a medium size lasting head. Great flavors of apricots, caramel and spices. The beer got better after every mouthful, considering the ABV.

I shared this with my parents last night, it was their first experience with a Belgian ale. My mom like it alot, dad took a little time to get into since it wasn’t Bud. He gave it a thumbs up later. Anyways, nice crystal red-amber-topaz color with elegant soft champagne like head that settles to champagne effers that remain till the end. Aroma expresses the mixed dried fruits, but has a strong dough yeast nose. Some caramel, barnyard dust and baking spices. Flavor was dominated by the yeast and less so of the other nosey flavors. Palate was creamy, again doughy, and a dry finish. Overall, a pleasant experience for everyone.

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.

loco_gallego (139) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Ambrée, mousse blanc cassé avec une bonne rétention. Arômatique sucrée, portée sur le caramel, avec des notes épicées. Houblonnage pas perceptible. En bouche également sur la douceur du caramel, très peu d’amertume. Fin de bouche fruitée et douce. Carbonation moyenne. Belgian ale moins complexe qu’attendu, mais agréable sur la douceur.

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.

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

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!

milo91hd (136) - Lecce, ITALY - SEP 3, 2014
Bottiglia. Colore ambrato carico con una schiuma cremosa fine e persistente. L’aroma richiama malto e spezie mentre al palato attacco in maniera dolce con caramello e frutta, finisce invece con un bel amaro caldo per niente fastidioso. Corpo medio con carbonazione bassa. Peccato non averla bevuta nel suo bicchiere caratteristico.

Rich amber colour with a huge white head. Dominant malt character with sweet malts, caramel, slight roasted cahacter and spicy hopped finish. Very crisp beer with balanced carbonation and warmth from the alcohol. easy goin beer

Very nice beer, was served in a pub in a Kwak glass (which looks like something from a lab)
