Pauwel Kwak (ABV 8.4%) is deep bright amber in color, with a dense, creamy head. Its aroma is mellow, fruity and malty, with a slightly spicy character from coriander and hops. Flavor is earthy and fruity, with hints of licorice and spice passing into a warm finish like caramelized banana. A delicate, balancing bitterness remains in the background.
