Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus yeasty aroma. Medium body. Flavor was full with sweet yeasty tone and spices with a moderate sweet finish and small alcohol bite. Good brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
November 2005. I had decided to save this bottle until I got the Kwak glass, but I couldn’t wait... 33 cl bottle and the beer is clear and nice amber with a red hue and the head is huge and nice. The aroma has notes of fruit, spice and sweetness. The flavour is sweet, but it’s nicely balanced of a nice hoppy bitterness. It has notes of fruit (slightly perfumed), caramel and spice. It’s a surprisingly refreshing beer, that in spite of it’s 8 % seems light but yet full-bodied. It’s really nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Conditioned. A beer more famous for its glass than its flavour! I was going to explain about the history of the glass in that case and then I find that Gusler has beaten me to it, still that was a while ago, so I will re iterate. In the days of horse drawn coaches, the drivers of the coach couldn't join the passengers in the tavern for a warming drink, so the glass was designed to fit a stand built onto the coach. It has a rounded bottom as it didnt need to stand on its own. The whole Belgian glass thing is, these days, about product placement, but Kwak does really taste better in the hour glass shape. It is a hazy orage beer which has been described many times now, but when you do try it, try drinking it chilled from its own glass!
