I have not had a Kwak in about 5 years. Just purchased a 750 ML bottle at Beverages, & More! in Pleasanton, CA. I will say however, I remember the beer having a bit more character than now. Mind you, the bottle I am tasting as I write this is still of very high quality. This beer is a classic as noted by the late, great Michael Jackson. This is one of those Belgian ales that characterizes what a "Belgian" beer should taste like. Nice fluffy off white head. The bouquet is caramel. Now the entry is where I feel the ale was lacking a bit from what I remembered. Taste is figs, prunes, with a good hop balance. Aftertaste is slightly dry with a nutty flavor. I was still pleased, overall. Cheers, mate!

Simply one of the very best beers I’ve ever tasted! I don’t know what else to say. I couldn’t help but write something about it here and gave it the highest score possible!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Best before 31.07.16. Pours a slightly hazy caramel/copper with a one finger, khaki head that thins to a thick film. Carbonation streaming from the center of the glass. Aroma has deep notes of candy sugar, bubblegum, spice, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, slight citrus, and a touch of pepper. Taste is balanced but a touch sweet. Dark sugar, caramel, bubblegum, slight pepper and clove, and a warm, slightly alcohol ending. Medium-full body with a medium-high carbonation. A touch of syrup in the mouth but still clean with a bone dry finish. Overall really nice. In the same realm as Maudite. I like :)

Tap at RJ. Clear deep amber-brown colour, quickly disappearing head. Aroma trippely, green apples, spicy. Taste very sweet, unbalanced, apples present, lightly spicy, alcohol burn. Not bad, but does not suit me well, poorly drinkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Klarowne, bursztynowe piwo o średnio obfitej pianie zdobiącej szkło, która redukuje się do cienkiego pierścienia przy brzegu szkła. Aromat owocowy typowo belgijski, głównie wyczuwalna gruszka. W smaku także przyjemna typowo belgijska owocowość. Goryczka średnia, owocowo-alkoholowa. Ogólnie bardzo dobre piwo, godny reprezentant stylu.
