COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First, there were the teasers, the rascals and the mischief makers : real little devils. Eccentric to the very tip of their horns, the Diabolici® were born in a mash tub which they consider to be the most precious source in the world. To honour their origins, these jokers have brought out the secret recipe for their much loved liquid : a demonic beer in the image of their lively and quirky spirit. This artisanal beverage, the fruit of a jealously guarded ancestral recipe, has a thousand and one tricks up its sleeve : sometimes amusing, sometimes lively, it all depends ! Beware of appearances : even the most daring have their breath taken away by this beer. Today this beer has found recognition within the Finest Beer Selection®, which is perpetuating its spread. From one inn to the next, Diabolici is extolled throughout the year. Whoever drinks it will also be imbued with malice. Diabolici® asserts its Triple Blonde character of high fermentation and bottle refermentation. It contains 8% alc./vol. and continues to bear the name of its creators, who bewitch the minds of those who are merrily drinking it. This legendary elixir is worthy of a magical world and is a legacy of our popular mythology. Having been brewed since the beginning of time at the gates of hell, the exquisite Diabolici® is the familiar and impish companion of our festive evenings. It is to be sampled with mischievousness in its exclusive chalice glass ! A genuine moment of truly magical flavour and quality.

Shared 750 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a large egg white fluffy head. Band aid, malts and spice on the nose. Sweet, light acidic flavors and a spicy bitterness. Medium body. Light alco warmth.

Syfher (194) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2014
Good "bière blonde" with a light and usual aroma (as the palate), but a really great appearance (golden amber one). In fact, we’re in front of a nice, but very usual beer.

Alusmamuts (1011) - LATVIA - JAN 18, 2015
Amber, bit orangem sparkling with medium off-white head. Nice yasty aroma. Bit too sharp and too carbonated taste, beginning from fruity sour and sweet followed by bitternes followed for the while.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 Color dorado. Turbia. La espuma tupida, de buena retención. Aroma de levadura belga y caramelo. Malteada en boca, tono acaramelado predominante. especiada sin compensar el dulzor. Amargor herbáceo y alcohol evidente pero que puede tolerarse. Final entre dulce y amargo. Con comida potente no está mal.

EddyBeer1 (1044) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne, col blanc moyen. Plutôt maltée, amertume de pils, arôme légèrement fruitée. Rien de neuf sous le soleil...

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2014
On tap at L’Estaminet, Verdun, and served in a gimmick cone glass. Slightly cloudy golden colour, dense but thin white head. Sweet aroma, standard blonde malt flavour. Average but not bad.

lello4ever (249) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Altra strong ale della John Martin, non risalta per meriti particolari ma l’ho trovata godibile. Con 8% ma leggera da bere, ha un colore giallo appena arancio e schiuma di media persistenza. Malto e una discreta ma non eccessiva dolcezza al palato.

zacgillbanks (3175) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle from Continente Supermarket, Lagos, Portugal. Hazy golden coloured with a sweet malty and toffee flavour with strong alcohol followed by amlond and a slight sugary sweet and tart finish.
