Habanero (4365) - Tranbjerg, Denmark, 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.

Nekronos (4178) - 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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Pours a hazy golden with a frothy, dense white head with light lacing. Aroma is bready and yeasty with a touch of butterscotch and light fruit. Body has nice, sweet Belgian maltiness with good yeasty character and balance. An enjoyable Belgian strong, but could use a touch more complexity.

Sten (742) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2005
Cloudy golden coloured beer. A fruity, spicy and malty aroma. The flavour is fruity and a bit malty. The aftertaste is bitter. (Bottle 33cl 8.5alcohol% in my version)

Keeper (253) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 25, 2005
Prima birra che commento; in una sola parola...fantastica! Ha gli stessi aromi della classica hoegaarden white, ma esaltati e coperti finemente dall alcol. Consigliata vivamente a tutti coloro che adorano le bianche di frumento.

Krausen (102) - USA - AUG 17, 2005
Clove and bananna dominate the aroma and it has a creamy body that is thick without being cloying. Great beer.
