Fresh out of my Secret Santa box with very little English on the label. Poured a hazy banana yellow with a dense white foam head. Spicey, bready nose that leads me to want to drink. Some citrus tang in the flavor, with coriander and clove spice. Very easy drinking for the claimed ABV. Very enjoyable.

Decent beer with fresh spicey taste. Easy to drink be it with high alcohol, a dangerous one!

Quinten (1049) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2006 Soft, sweet, and fruity. Orange, banana, some pepper, overwalming alcohol.

pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a decent head. Flavor is a complex with lots of cramel and bright fruit. slightly bitter finish tops its off nicely.

Belial (71) - BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2012 this is a fairly good beer. Average white head and yellow color that many compare to pee...^^ Anyway, an interesting blond beer, sweeter and stronger than a lager, but not as fruity as an ale. Another good beer from Belgium. Great along a "quiche" (salty pie).

This is a very strong version of a whitbier by Hoegaarden, but it is simple to describe if you have had the standard Hoegaarden - add lots of alcool into the palate, a darker pour, and some caramel from somewhere. The light hints of citrus are still to be found, as is the wheat-bitterness.

kwik-lime (1395) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2005
Good aroma, citrusey with hints of alcohol, bread and malt. Pours a cloudy amber with good carbonation and a medium head. Taste is sweet and somewhat citrusey, the high alcohol content is well disguised. It’s got a nice balance but not overly complex. More interesting than regular Hoegaarden but still unspectacular.

Habanero (2802) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2011 This is some beer. White medium head. Light orange colour. Lively carbonation. Very spicy aroma with notes of yeast, coreander and orange peel. Sweet flavour with caramel, fruit and coreander. Full bodied with a marquant alcohol. More dry finish.

stouby (3839) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle, at home. Golden with white head, mostly diminishing, modest lacings. Aroma moderate/very malty (bread, citrus). Flavor very sweet, bittersweet finish. Medium body, oily, soft carbonated, the strenght is felt.

Nekronos (3658) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 20, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 I expected more from this beer, is not that different from Julius, and was not that good. I think it was more alcohol than any other stuff.
