Ingredients: Barley malts, mineral water, wheat, hops and white candy sugar.
Created in the 1980s, and named after an 18th century brewer and innkeeper, Pauwel Kwak, who apparantly developed a shorter version of the traditional English long stirrup glass (which developed into the yard of ale), for coachmen to use.
Kwak is served with respect for tradition in its own Kwak glass. Recognisable, special and just as idiosyncratic as the taste of the beer itself.

I like this fudgeing beer, it's as beautifull as good. And the special glass is the little plus waht make the different !

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Amber coloured, great head. Quite sweet, notes of caramel and nuts, alcohol is certainly detectable. Nice beer, but somehow i always like the bottled version more than when served on draft. Few extra points overall for the beautiful glass.

Bright copper in colour. Super head which was frothy yet had much texture (although didn't last). If you let this beer linger slightly in your mouth you will pick up a most wonderful toffee flavour. Quite hoppy for a beer of this nature as well. Kind of reminded me of Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit only better all round. Very impressed.

Rerate: Orange dark-gold slightly hazy colour with some suspended flakely bits and a yellow-beige short lasting head. Caramel malt, cured meat yeast, faint fruit, grainy malt and some alcohol aromas (especially as it warmed up). Medium bodied with above average malty sweetness perhaps still overbalancing my liking for a more balanced bitter-sweet flavour. The palate is relatively plain and has a softish end for this type of beer. The alcohol also comes through giving it a somewhat raw or unfinished feel. Sweetish, alcoholic malty finish. First rated 12/5/02 3.4

Deep gold colour, good big white head with serious carbonation. Nose is citrus/malty with fruit and bubblegum as well. A fair few chunky bits in the body are propelled all over by the carbonation. Sticky sweet body with some bitterness and a malt finish. Good stuff, love the glass.

toffee and caramel nose, more bitter finish than a lot of Belgians. Seems to be more of a session beer, maybe.

Very sweet with toffee and caramel. Smooth at first, but finishes with a bit of unpleasant alcohol bite. The glass is damn cool though.

A nice richness with toffee, caramel flavour. This had a bitter sweet palate. A nice beer, wish i had a glass.

Famous for its glass. Malty, hoppy, something bitter........................
