3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
