3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep copper with a tan head. Nose is spicy with hints of caramel. Taste is malty, with caramel up front. Not bad, but not the smoothest beer Iíve had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. For such a common beer, this was a real pleasure to drink. It is rosy, almost tea colored in the glass with a range of sediment sizes. Rather thin head, but not so much that it detracts from the appearance. The smell is surprisingly fresh for an 8% beer, with lemon, citrus, alfalfa, wheat, and some light caramel tones. the taste is very sweet with a bitter lingering taste. Bracing spices, oak, caramel, and some christmas spices abound. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick.

Weíre all on kWAK!!! This is one of the best Belgianís for the money one can buy in the US. All malt and complex yeasty flavors with an abv that is hidden well. This tastes like a Belgian session beer but the session would be short. We would all be horizontal instead of all on Kwak!

Got this based on the recommendation of another beer enthusiast. Glad I did. I usually prefer domestic micro brews, but this one was pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, rather deep orange-amber with a solid slightly beige head.
Definite nose of hops and somehow spices (even if there arenít any spices used to brew it) and this aroma is also reflected in the taste, though a tiny bit sweeter than the smell led me to expect. Definitely some alcohol in the mix, not surprising for an 8.4% ABV beer.
At a slightly higher temperature than the recommended 5-6įC (41-43įF) itís easier to enjoy the aftertaste thatís nicely malty though not overdone.
Quite a strong taste and definitely a brew to try.

I see this bottle all the time, and have always wanted to buy it. But at $4.99, itís tough having not had it. This is on our 1001 Bottles list, so we didnít have a choice. Glad I didnít buy it before now, because itís not good! It does have a nice sweetness to it, but the mouthfeel is boring, the aroma is weak, and the aftertaste is... well, there isnít one. I am not impressed, and if they want to give me my money back, that would be fine!

Prominent citrus and cherry aroma. The appearance was unremarkable overall but the flavor was complex and a nice balance of citrus fruit with the underlying malt. An excellent beer.

Nice light amber color with a lot of foam in the head. Smooth caramel malt and alcohol are the dominate flavors.
