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.

Schlumpfhunter (37) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2015
Farbe: Bernstein Schaum: wie ein gutes Weizen, top. Nase: fein gerösteter Malz, säuerlich Geschmack: sehr mild und rund auf der Zunge, malzig, süß. Im Abgang dann wieder die Röstaromen und ein bisschen Getreide dazu. Ganz leicht kommt noch was Bitteres im Nachgeschmack dazu. Sehr runde Geschmacksnoten, überhaupt sehr vollmundig ohne wirklich schwer zu sein. Ich schwöre, das geniale Glas beeinflusst die Bewertung nicht, aber ich könnte darin baden!

OnlyRogueAngel (32) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2015
Creamy amber colour with a thick head of foam, smells and tastes of caramel and bitter hops with hints of banana. Leaves a bitter hoppy aftertaste.

Sweet, strong and complex. Floral tastes that get more bitter towards the end of the pint. A good Belgium beer.
