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.

Deze klassieker is zeer aan te raden. Mooi bier dat nog beter smaakt uit het bijbehorende glas!

From tap in real Kwak glass. Nice nose and appearance in dark amber and with malty notes. Taste is sweet and malty with almost raisins on the tounge. Palate is also sweet with fruityness and some very light hops.

Bottle to tulip. Clear copper with minimal white head. Malt dominates the aroma and flavor. Rich and full.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Olhão 18/7 2016. 33 cl bottle from Continente Modelo Supermarket. Drawing on the label of the infamous Pauwel Kwak holding his Kwak glass which should be used when drinking this Kwak beer. Unfortunately I do not have a Kwak glass. Must settle for a San Miguel glass (I know I hereby commit a hereby). Pours slightly hazy dark amber with big white head. Settles as thick creamy white Crown of foam several centimeters thick. Aroma is quite intense with Belgian yeast, caramel, banana, a little citrus and a whiff of lemonade. Soft carbonation and thick creamy palate. Flavor is well on the sweet side being sugary and candylike. Quite fruity aftertaste with a tart sour edge. Also a nice edge of alcohol. My only objection is that the bottle only holds 33 cl. Truly a nice Belgian - with a fantastic name. Kwak, Kwak.

Bottle - Hazy orange colour, medium, stable white head. Great fruity and yeasty nose with some apple, candy, peach, raisins and bubble gum. Taste is sweet fruity with brown sugar, peach, apple, plum, some spicy twist, cloves, low hop bitterness, alcohol is well disguised. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, oily and velvety mouthfeel, rich malty finish. Outstanding belgian strong ale, highly recommended.

Kwak, probably the most iconic beer in Belgium if not the world. Every beer enthousiast should at least have tasted one kwak from the special courier glass once in their live. And yes, it does taste better in the glass. Why? Who knows!

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2016 Solidny belgian strong ale - słodowy, zbożowy, dość słodki, przyjemnie rozgrzewający ze słodowo, fenolowym aromatem. Całkiem pijalny, idealnie wpisuje się w belgijską klasykę. Niezłe piwo
