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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy brown, nice beige head that dissipates failry quickly but leaves a halo and some legs. Nice medium to heavy bodied mouthfeel, with aromas of malts, and sugar. I get some dark fruit, a little bit of orange peel, tartness, and alcohol notes. A sweet beer that finishes dry and grainy. Some bitterness as well, but not consistently. This is a very nice Belgian ale, not too acute, and with a decent ABV to enjoy with dinner or dessert. Tasted @ 55F.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 Pours a gorgeous amber orange colour with an impressive thick off white head. Aroma was quite sweet and somewhat malty with notes of yeast. Citrus, caramel, spice notes as well. I was happy to try it. Amazing and clever glass.....way to big to conceal on your way out of the bar.

This been for sure has an interesting traditional way of serving the beer. FO you that do not know, you place it in a small version of a yard glass with a wooden structure holding the glass in. There is a small bulb at the bottom the the glass. I was told the beer is called "quack" because if you drink it and do not turn the bulb you get a nice spash in the face from and air bubble (similar relsuts of a boot). Other than the glass the beer was not that bad IT had a great color, and head on top. The flavor was very malty, but the beer was clean. I had a good hops finish.

Tap at Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Served in the idiosyncratic glass Kwak is known for, which added to the experience. The taste is quite sweet, and the first sip reminds me of Tripel Karmeliet. There is a slight taste of alcohol in the back, not exactly pleasant. All in all not bad. I prefer Tripel Karmeliet, if that even is a sensible comparison.

Aspetto ambrato-rosso, bella schiuma.
Buon profumo, sapore fruttato e caramellato, bell’equilibrio finale tra dolce e amaro. Un’ottima Belgian Strong Ale.
