This is a new feature of my blog. What I am calling the ‘Saturday morning review of Friday night’s Beer’. I am a great fan of beer so I though I’ll share some experience. It could easliy turn into a ‘Sunday morning review of Saturday night’s Beer. as well…
Last night I was drinking a Belgium beer called ‘KWAK’ which I got from Colney Hatch Tesco. I think it was around £1.79 a bottle. You can find it next to the Leffe etc.
On the back of the bottle it says: ‘An uncomparable belgium top fermentation beer with a unique taste.’
(for me that is perfect colour for winter night beer)
The closest I could compare it to is a Leffe Triple (which I have only tried once when I was in Brussels). It’s dark and syrupy with a strong, slightly fruity taste that fills your mouth and nose. It definately has that ‘ancient’ taste which is hard to decribe – Very nice.
It’s Alc. % Vol is 8.4 which means that after about half a glass I was feeling pretty good and after 3 bottles I felt it a little in the morning. Kind’ve like Duval in that respect.
Overall if you like your thick Belgium beers this is hightly recommnded by me!
I found another blog with moe about Kwak if you want to find out more:
Looks like you can buy some from Amazon as well.
