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.

I’ve had this twice during 2 separate visits to Cafe Hollander in ’Tosa. Both times I thought it was awful. Weird aroma of medicine, banana, toffee, and capsicum. Horrible medicinal flavor. This is terrible and they didn’t do it any favors by serving it in an odd fucked up test tube like glass that looked very much like that "Drinking Bird" everyone had in the 1970’s.. On top of that, the glass came in a strange wooden holder that made getting to the glass difficult. Perhaps they were trying to prevent you from drinking this glop? This beer is really, really bad. Tap.

Rich nose, lots of different smells, lots of caramel. Beer tastes not as good as it smells. You don’t feel the alcohol percentage... love the kwak glas! Was made for people riding a chariot, so they could place their beer in the chariot, like a cup holder in a car these days.
