Cannot beleive this beer is rated lower than karmeliet. I think Kwak is the staple of bosteels. Pours an amber color with decent head. tastes of dark fruit and has all the characteristics of a true belgian strong. very drinkable and creamy in the mouth. the finish is very smooth and only a bit of flavor lacking in the aftertaste, but overall a very good ale. i was impressed with this beer.

4.05/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours copper with a one finger light tan head, with decent retention and spotty lacing. the aroma has apples, pears, Belgian yeast, caramel, brown sugar, bananas, and cloves.

The taste is sweet, but the sweetness is not cloying. There is caramel malt, apples, pears, pepper, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, bananas, cloves, dark fruit, and phenols.

Medium bodied with below average carbonation. Easy to drink. Worth trying, and buying again in my opinion.
