A couple months ago I was just hauling random Belgians off the shelves like a man possessed, and in so doing, happened upon a beer called PAUWEL KWAK. It is, to my way of thinking, an exceptionally average beer. It is a light-colored amber, high-alcohol (8%) Belgian pale ale. I think I tasted honey, strong malts, and fairly low hops, but what I didn’t taste was character or anything that made this particularly more interesting than, say, a STELLA ARTOIS. Now obviously some folks have been getting’ their buzz on to this one since 1791, so who am I to say – but there’s a world of unexplored beer out there, my friends – no need to get your knob wet with this one. 5.5/10.
