Gehbe (306) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - OCT 5, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Pours a lovely clear amber with a big beige head, some lacing. Aroma of caramel, zest, spice, baguette crust, pine nuts, wood, some earthy/smoky/yeasty notes. Tastes medium sweet, some light sourness from carbonation backing it up, light grapefruitty bitterness in aftertaste. Medium body, high carbonation, not as sticky as expected. Excellent but a tad too sweet.

jsporrer (830) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours a deep caramel brown with a medium sized tan head. Nice strong tart aroma with caramel and spices. Taste is similar to Gulden Draak but not quite as prominent. Gets even better as it warms up. Very enjoyable.

Inoven (443) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2016
Flesje gekregen met verjaardag. Donker amberkleurig bier, helder met weinig schuim. Zoetige en caramelachtig aroma met een vleugje pruimen. Smaak is zoet en licht bitter. De bittere hopsmaak blijft even hangen.

puren (838) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Prezentacja: przejrzyste z zawieszonym pyłem, bursztynowe, skąpa piana schodzi do obrączki, słabo zdobi szkło;
Aromat: delikatny, warzywny, po zabełtaniu odrobina brzoskwini;
Odczucie: ciało średnie, średnio nasycone, rozgrzewa przełyk, musuje na języku;
Smak: karmel, tytoń, boazeria, lekki metal;
Oglnie: mocny zawd, aromatu praktycznie nie ma, smak ledwo powyżej nijakiego.

LordBrew (228) - Ziemnice, POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Piwo ciemno bursztynowe, nieprzejrzyste, świetna piana, zdobi szkło. Aromat - suszone owoce, sporo słodu, średnio intensywny. Smak - bardzo słodowy, dość słodki, trochę szczypiący od karmelu i alkoholu, intensywnie drożdżowy, słodycz fajnie zrwnoważona alkoholem. Wysycenie spore. Posmak długi, wytrawny raczej , lekko grzeje w przełyk. Bardzo dobre belgijskie piwo.

frikadele (8) - LITHUANIA - SEP 12, 2016 does not count
It comes in a dark amber tone, rather crystal appearance. Nice head lets you smell all the aromas, but most of them open in your mouth, leaving a strong sweet candy sugar taste, so typical for belgian ales.

Bontus (778) - Flanders, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2016
Has this beer a few times before but forgot to rate it. Kwak is an amber coloured beer with a caramel malt character, sweet cookies and cake aroma most dominant. Not cloying, but not sessionable either.
