In honour to Pauwel Kwak I raise my glass
Kwak beer is named after its developer Pauwel Kwak. It’s probably a typical Belgian beer with an alcohol content of about 8.4 % abv. brewed by the family brewery Bosteels. The glass it is served in is specially formed – like an hour glass, so that it can be stored at top of a stagecoach’s coachbox.
We got the beer at a nice beer garden in the middle of Brussels. I guess it’s the only beer garden in the city centre. It took quite a while to get the beer but it was worth it.
The Kwaks color is darker than amber. It smelled very fruity and estery. Taking the first nip let me tasted its sweet bitterness. Don’t have to tell that this beer is well balanced, sparkling and very refreshing.
There was some light broad bitterness at the end which stayed for a while but that didn’t disturb the overall impression.
This kind of beer should be brewed more and drunk more often!
The beer was poured from a keg.
