The Pauwel Kwak has a deep amber colour. When poured correctly it forms a lovely firm head. It 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.
In Napoleon’s time Pauwel Kwak was a brewer and the owner of the ‘De Hoorn’ inn in Dendermonde. Mail coachesstopped there every day. But at that time coachmen were not allowed to leave their coach and horses in order to have their thirst quenchedalong with their passengers. As a result, the inventive innkeeper had a special Kwak glass blown that could be hung on the coach. In this way the coachman had his Kwak beer safely at hand.
