It’s a nice beer, but not really special. Fantastic glass. Above average taste, but as I said, don’t expect anything spectacular.

bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 16, 2007
33 cL bottle. Aroma of caramel malt. Orangey amber color with fine bubbles, and an off-white head that laced a little. Medium body with mild, almost creamy, carbonation. There is instant heat, a light touch of darker fruits, and moderate caramel sweetness. It’s beautiful, but not so complex as many.

DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 5, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy deep amber with a rather big beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, yeast, fruits, toasted notes, light spiciness and hints of hops. Sweet malty flavor with some caramel, fruits, some spicy yeast and some metal towards the finish. Medium-bodied with a pretty strong carbonation. Quite pleasant.

3.6
Scopey (14708) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at The George, Croydon. Had this plenty of times pre-rating days. It pours clear deep amber - brown with a thick, foamy white head. The aroma is bitter - sweet, banoffie pie, banana split, toffee, toasted brown bread, apple/pear and some alcohol. The taste is crisp, bitter, boosty alcohol, brown bread, apple pie, pear, candied fruits, cereal, fruit cake and varnished wood with a dry, woody finish. Medium + body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Drinks way easier than it should! Still a pretty decent beverage after all these years.

imdownthepub (14552) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2003
Bottle Conditioned. A beer more famous for its glass than its flavour! I was going to explain about the history of the glass in that case and then I find that Gusler has beaten me to it, still that was a while ago, so I will re iterate. In the days of horse drawn coaches, the drivers of the coach couldn't join the passengers in the tavern for a warming drink, so the glass was designed to fit a stand built onto the coach. It has a rounded bottom as it didnt need to stand on its own. The whole Belgian glass thing is, these days, about product placement, but Kwak does really taste better in the hour glass shape. It is a hazy orage beer which has been described many times now, but when you do try it, try drinking it chilled from its own glass!

Tmoney99 (14460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus yeasty aroma. Medium body. Flavor was full with sweet yeasty tone and spices with a moderate sweet finish and small alcohol bite. Good brew.
