I have not had a Kwak in about 5 years. Just purchased a 750 ML bottle at Beverages, & More! in Pleasanton, CA. I will say however, I remember the beer having a bit more character than now. Mind you, the bottle I am tasting as I write this is still of very high quality. This beer is a classic as noted by the late, great Michael Jackson. This is one of those Belgian ales that characterizes what a "Belgian" beer should taste like. Nice fluffy off white head. The bouquet is caramel. Now the entry is where I feel the ale was lacking a bit from what I remembered. Taste is figs, prunes, with a good hop balance. Aftertaste is slightly dry with a nutty flavor. I was still pleased, overall. Cheers, mate!
Bottle. 8.4%. Best before 26.06.19. Pours a clear, deep golden, with a creamy, light tan head. Good lacing. Fruity, and a bit floral aroma with a yeast note. A bit heavy. Hops, light berries, apple, melon, alcohol and a hint of blue cheese as it warms. Flavour is sweetish, with fruit, hops, yeast, apple, malt. Metallic hint as it warms. Dryish, fruity finish with a mild alcohol note/burn and a lingering hint of bitter liquorice, followed by a grassy note. Soft palate. Overall good, somewhat complex, though a wee bit cloying in the long run. 15.11.17. dzenkalpic (86) - TURKEY - NOV 14, 2017
