Un classique qui se doit d’apparaître (au moins de temps à autre) à la pression dans tout bar à bière qui se respecte. On peut lui reprocher de "tabasser" (8.4, c’est des trucs à mal finir si on est pas habitué ^^), mais c’est bien une des seules choses, à vrai dire ^^

Vinx (63) - ITALY - JUL 28, 2013
Colore ambrato, schiuma moderata, forte aroma di lavanda. Pastosissima al palato, al punto da risultare quasi sgradevole. Per questo motivo consiglio vivamente di berla alla temperatura consigliata (5-6°C) se non ad una inferiore. Gusto di frutta matura non troppo articolato. Di certo non la migliore belgian che abbia mai bevuto. Amber colour, medium foam, intense lavender aroma. So mushy to be almost unpalatable. For that I suggest to drink it at 5-6°C (as written on the bottle) or at lower temperature. Not too much complex mature fruit taste. Surely not the best belgian I’ve ever had.

A beautiful beer with a marvelous brown-red colours with a beige rock head. A full flavour of toffee, caramel, rosty AnD nuts. A sweet beer balancednwith a lil bit of bitter final. Great beer

Kwak is a nice beer, but it’s a real experience when you drink it from the original glass. It can get very messy if you want to drink it too fast.
