On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear copper wioth a small lasting amber head. Aromas of fruitiness, carmel and light spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, fruitiness, light spice and a hint of yeast with a smooth slightly drey lingering sweet finish.

We’re all on kWAK!!! This is one of the best Belgian’s for the money one can buy in the US. All malt and complex yeasty flavors with an abv that is hidden well. This tastes like a Belgian session beer but the session would be short. We would all be horizontal instead of all on Kwak!

JohnnyJ (5545) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours a dark amber with light caramel colored head. Dark fruit, bread, brown sugar, caramel, and alcohol. Pretty standard belgian, uninteresting, and the alcohol comes through too much. Its not a bad beer, its just not very good for the style.

3.7
GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Brew pours amber with a decent head that slowly recedes to a fine canopy and a thin ring. Rich aromas of fruitcake. Medium full nectar with good carbonation. A rich and malty personality with just a mild sweetness factor. Quite complex with nuances of cherry, plumb, wood, cakebatter, kiwi, and a hint of spice. The finish is long with a mild sweetness that lingers and only mildy bittered. This brew is generous.

2.8
Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Nice overall, but too sweet and not enough depth for a higher rating. There are too many other Belgian strong ales (Delirium Tremens, for example) that are much better than this one.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2007
Amber in color, malty, sweet, fruity with lots of taste from butterscotch and caramell. Quite typical for this sort of brew. Full pot in appearance due to the funny Kwak-glass everybody loves.

TrefwoordPunk (1162) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Bottle 33cl. Pours a clear red with a thick white head. Taste is sweet, a bit hoppy with a nice finish

Retrogosto doce e de álcool.<P>

Dark orange color, just barely offwhite head with lots of big bubbles on bottom and egg white tiny bubbles on the top. Aroma of orange, caramel, yeast, dried fruit; similar taste with creamy finish, spice, flowers, a bit of alcohol, lots of dried fruit, quite dry.
