Description:

Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Fermentation
Top-fermentation, filtered and pasteurised.

Colour & Transparency
The Pauwel Kwak has a deep amber colour. When poured correctly it forms a lovely firm head.

Serving Glass
Served in the distinctive Kwak 'Koetsiersglas' with its convex bottom, which sits in a wooden stand. It is very likely the most distinctive beer glass in Belgium. There really is no alternative to this glass.

Character, Tastes & Aromas
Pauwel Kwak has earthy aromas, a malty character with touches of liquorice, a nougat-like robustness and a warm finish not unlike caramelised banana. Yeast and red fruits are the strongest aromas, but you will also find a few herbs.

The caramel is quite noticeable, together with the herbs and orange zest. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and herbal.

Keeping and Storage
Just like the other beers in the Bosteels range, the bottle states a storage life of two years. We strongly recommend that you follow this guideline. The taste of this beer will not improve with longer storage, in fact it could deteriorate.

More Details:

In the 18th century there was a very well-known brewer in the Dendermonde area; his name was Pauwel Kwak. He brewed his own beer, which was dark and heavy. He also has had a coaching inn on the road between Mechelen and Gent, where the mail coaches used to stop for a break.

In those days, the Napoleonic Code ruled that coach drivers were forbidden to drink beer with their passengers and so they were not allowed to leave the coach to quench their thirst. Pauwel Kwak invented an efficient solution to this problem by offering the famous Kwak beer in a special glass that could be fixed to the carriage, so the drivers could also enjoy one.

This story inspired a brewer from nearby Buggenhout and since the 1980s the Pauwel Kwak is brewed by Brouwerij Bosteels, which also produces the popular Tripel Karmeliet and the DeuS Brut des Flandres.
