Hoppy flavor, high alcohol is evident. A tad harsh. I’m just not a fan of the Kwak.

Not bad. Has a bit of butterscotch and yeast in the nose. Pours out to a cloudy amber-gold color with finely beaded white head. Starts out with some toffee-like malty sweetness and ends with a light alcohol sensation. A few light fruit and spice notes, but nothing strong.

Bottle. Amber-red with small head. Pleasently malty-sweet and fruity with alcohol in the mix. Quite drinkable, though not that memorable.

When you see this beer come on the table, the glass is a desire for the eye, but the taste of the beer is not super. So, most of the points I gave a for the presentation

Tastes like every other Belgian I’ve had. The only thing this beer has going for it is the crazy ass conveyance thing it’s served in. Looks like some type of science experiment.
