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.

Distinctly Belgian. Sweet malt smell with Belgian yeast. Deep Amber color. Medium weight and smooth. Sweet and caramel flavors with a creme brűlée hint touched by a yeast finish.

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.

TorbenJensen (515) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
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.

Clear copper color with white foam. The smell is boozy and has a little hoppy note. The taste is boozy with a lot of cookie dough and with a light carbonation. Calm aftertaste.

hrabren (143) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 14, 2015
Drank this in old Tolkien’s Pub on Catherine’s Square in Zagreb back in 2004, this is only the second time in a bar in Ba?anija, Istria. Amber with small but strong off white head. Peach ice tea aroma, biscuit and alcohol notes. Refreshing, sparkling, sweet, alcoholic warmth. Sweet syrupy finish, full body, medium carbonation. An old classic Belgian.

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.

EtTuCthulhu (1375) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2015
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.
