Middle of the road tripel.Nice foamy head with lacing but disappears fast.Little carbonation.Nose of ripe pears,apricots.Taste is on the bitter side with metallic/herbal notes.Beer is quite good,not exceptional .The glass is great though.

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

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2006 A very complex book with detailed chapters on fruit, spices, caramel, malt and hops…The pages of my copy though are stuck together by bubblegum…This is not the first copy I buy…

Very sweet with toffee and caramel. Smooth at first, but finishes with a bit of unpleasant alcohol bite. The glass is damn cool though.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 This beer is much like a Palm but with a higher ABV. Malty aroma, sweet and spicy taste. Alcohol isn’t well hidden. Bonus points for the beautifull glass in which one should drink the beer.

A nice beer, but not one that I would write home about. Hoppy yet sweet. Would like to try it again to see if I was just not properly prepared for this beer.

I think I expected more. It was good and all but it didn’t have any kick what so ever.
