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!

Fruity aroma with some spicy and malty notes. Clear amber colour. Sweet front with sustained boozy flavour; notes of caramel, dates, and honey. Medium in body and carbonation. Quite a pleasant beer.

Espuma abundante en principio que permanece en una fina capa, color cobrizo con chispeantes burbujas subiendo constantemente por la cerveza, se aprecia un olor agradable en nariz, en boca el sabor es dulce por la malta y agradable, regusto sabroso.

6.7.2014. Red colour, clear. Aroma has red berries, yeast, caramel. Taste has raisins, caramel, orange, alcohol. Quite simple and not very strong taste, feels overrated.

Kwak is a well known beer abroad, even if it is more commercialised I still recommend this one because it’s taste is so great! and the glass that goes with it is so special to drink it with.
