The beer behind the famous glass, I often pity the poor thing. It’s relegated to only a marginal, bit part in the eccentric history of Kwak and Belgium obsession with beer. Still worth a taste, though. Whether in the quirky but functional Kwak glass or in your standard goblet, the Krwak is a cloudy orange and ruby beer with a heavy storm of particulate matter stirred up by the pour, looking a little like the dark and lively underside of a glacier, though the top is a mere buttermilk white head, a mere 1cm and totally still. The aroma hits with a blunt cherry dum-dum flavor, or like the unique taste of Swedish Fish, with a sweet glump of orange marmalade, a gin dryness, cranberry, marachino cherry and a light grain glow. The flavor sheds most of this candied smell, making way for a grainy and slightly bitter taste of English muffins, hops and the bitter-sweet part of cranberries. This beer definitely has a Belgian signature on it, and that’s collectible in my book, and drinking it out of the approved Kwak glass only makes this beer better.

0,75l. Wonderful, fruity, cognac aroma. Beautiful dark amber, even white head. Taste spicy, sweet but subtle. Excellent kick at the end, with some sweeter fruits.

Only tried a few ounces of this. A friend suggested I try his so that I didn’t have to buy a sub par beer. Im thankful he did. This beer wasnt that great. Theres some sweet fruit notes but also some alcohol.

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2008
Moderate yeasty, caramel, light fruity, malty dark bread and light alcoholic. Dark red body with a creamy off-white large head, long lasting. Light sweet taste with a long duration. Light to medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation and a malty taste. A very nice beer.

750ml bottle at Vol de Nuit in nyc. Terribly unimpressed by this belgian ale. For the style, which is a hit for me, is sadly as generic as they come, overly sugary some cherries. But no real complexity to over shadow 8%, dry finish. Very disappointed.

Pours a honey color with an audible fizz, like pop. This beer is good in all categories, but at the same time is nothing special. Flavor is of honey, mango, orange preserves. I’m pleased overall.
