look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
330ml bottle poured into Corsendonk glass dec5 2009
A clear amber with lots of carbonation and a fairly fast falling fingers worth of head that left no lace
S lots of yeast with some pear and apple
T not far from the smell with a little caramel but it's a little sour and pretty average for the style
M a little thin and bitter and I'm not sure where all the visible carbonation went cause it's a little flat in the mouth
D not bad but nothing special either, for what this beer costs your money is better spent else where
perhaps if I had a Kwak glass to drink out of it would have been a little more fun, but this beer didn't do a whole lot for me, I'm not saying its offensive I was just expecting a little more

With the employment of kettle caramelization, Pauwel Kwak's confidence in this "grand cru" of a beer earns the beer the name of the brewmaster. ...and one sip will show you why!
As the dark amber decants, a rusty haze gives a glimpse into its rustic roots. Once tipped, aromas of soft nuts, caramel, bread crust and fresh baking bread entice the nose while a balance of cinnamon and nutmeg balance upon the initial taste.
Once the beer develops over the middle, its bready and toasty middle gives slight bready texture that's lifted with rose-type wine. Its acidity enlivens the malt and gives its terse caramel sweetness life with red grape, red apple and dried dates. Its nutmeg flavor garners esteem just ahead of the beer's finish.
That's when the high effervescence lifts the taste and refreshes the palate with ease- its steely caramel flavor dissolves easily, carrying with it any malty weight and bready texture- nearly preferring wine like zestiness in charming warmth as the taste closes.
