4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a lovely beer from Bosteels brewery! The amber colour allready reveals the caramel taste, but the taste is really complex and a lot of other flavours can be distinguished. What adds to the charm of this beer is also the story behind it: This was originally a coachman’s bear , hence the special glass. The glass used to be placed on a fixture on the coach (the wooden part of the glass) . So if you remove the glass from the wooden frame you can experience it like the coachmen used to. The name kwak originates from the smash you can expect when drinking a little too fast at a certain level :-) but the shape of the glass prevented spilling when the coach was moving. However, even without this magnificent story and glass this is a wonderfull beer.

Alleen het glas maakt dit bier al een feest om te drinken. Gelukkig valt de smaak ook niet tegen. Integendeel: Lekker amberkleurig bier met een rijke smaak.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Large beautiful rich foam rises during pouring. This is a classic among Belgian beer. Its aroma is fruity and malty and very delicate. The taste is most caramel with notes of orange, apples / pears and has a comfortable sweet level without being "sticky". Slightly yeasty complemented by a spicy finish that together with a slight hoppy bitterness gives it good aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark amber and clear. Aroma reminds me of a subdued quad, dark sugars, figs and belgian yeast.
Taste is quite sweet, like a actually good belgian tripel, lot´s of dark fruits and raisins. No traces of the relative high alcohol content.
Bottle from Bier-deluxe.

The beer pours a clear orangeish with a large off-white head. The aroma blends clove, apricot, wheat, and spicy notes. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour. The palate fuses an average carbonation, medium body, and a slick texture.
