A nice beer, but too chunky, maybe my bottle was a bit old, but I usually like that, but this beer had BIG chunks! Its a good beer, but I wish the beer wasn’t so thick, alot of particles. I will try this beer again soon

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2005
Aroma is belgian yeast, spices. Pours a dark copper, nice head and lacing. Fruity, slight caramel, alcohol finish with some hops. Fairly dry. Par for the course Belgian.

Tap. Pours a nice amber with ecru head. A little more mild than other belgians. Doesn’t seem to be quite as complex as other belgians, but still good. There was a distinct musty sweetness that the Kwak had. Overall, I have to try some more to get really used to the style.

Amber body with a foamy off white head that left minimal lacing. Bready aroma with fruits(bananas) carmel, yeast and rasins too. Bready yeast flavors with bananas and some sweet malts as well. A bit tingly int the mouth with a smooth feel.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) The gimmicky glass is NOT the main thing about this beer. Actually the "Kwak" is a very decent ale in it’s own right. Beautiful amber with a nice creamy head. Lots of floating yeast. Has some caramel-like notes but never gets sweet or cloying. Very nice ale. 181093

Wolfbass (1086) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 7, 2011
Il colore è bell’ambrato con schiuma compatta. Aroma classico dello stile ma secondo un pò povero. In bocca è tutto da copione, dolciastra e con poco carattere. Mi aspettavo di più.

I tried it at a belgian sampling at the Muddy Pig in st paul in 2008. It wat one of my favorite belgian style, nice mix of malts.

(Bottle, 0.75 l, at least two year old one) Poured mahogany coloured and quite clear. Head was medium sized, fizzy and it disappeared quickly. Aroma had raisins, citricness, mead and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were raisins, malts, mildly sweetness, fruitiness, mead and bitterness. Aftertaste was dry and sweet. I suppose ageing hasn’t done good to this one. I should have drunk this as fresh. Aroma was superb.
