look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3

Poured from corked & caged 750mL bottle into a tulip. Almost can't believe I haven't tried this yet!

Appearance: medium amber hue with no haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy ivory foam with a moderate retention. A bit dark for a pale but not bad.

Smell: an alcoholic fruitiness with a bit of a floral character. It's also quite sweet. I think I would have preferred more actual malt character here.

Taste: much like the aroma, there's not a ton of maltiness here, just kind of a sweet fruitiness. There's bitterness as well, but it does not play well with this beer's other flavors. I must say I'm not a big fan.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and a great mouthfeel. Easily this beer's most redeeming characteristic.

Overall: not as drinkable as most other BSPAs. It's not terrible, but it kind of rubs me the wrong way, flavor-wise. I won't be going after the Kwak again.
