For years I have thought Chimay Grande Reserve and Duval were the finest beers on the planet. I now prefer Kwak to both!

Appearance: Dark amber to copper with a large cream head. This beer has beautiful legs.

Aroma: Complex, fruity aroma with sweet smelling esters and phenols balanced with the malt.

Taste. If it's in the aroma, it's in the taste. And the effervescent carbonation enhances the tastes of the esters and the phenols.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and warm without an alcohol taste. The high carbonation is very pleasant.

Drinkability:Awesomely smooth This is a World Class Beer.

Pours an amber colour topped by a creamy head. This beer looks beautifull... especially the glass adds to the appearance. Aroma consists of sweet malts & fruits. Taste is VERY SWEET. Pauwel Kwak has a sweetness like no other beer i've ever tasted. If you don't like sweet beers then don't even bother trying this one. On the other hand, if you are into sweet beers then you wouldn't mind drinking Kwak all day long. Just have in mind the ABV. Don't let the sweetness of this beer fool you. It's a very strong beer. An excellent beer in my humble opinion. MY FAVOURITE.
