COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

75cl bottle, expired april 1989! At home, shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, no foam whatsoever. NOSE: alcohol, grains, very jenever like. TASTE: jenever again, some sour apples... Very nice experiment, but not worth drinking anymore off course... The regular Lucifer like taste is gone completely. No hops detectable anymore and fruity bitterness is replaced by alcohol warming feeling.

Hoofdsmaak is zuur en wat bitter. Nasmaak is overheersend bitter. Weinig geur. Ruikt naar een ’gewoon’ biertje. Duvel van Moortgat kan ik zeer waarderen, helaas dit biertje stuk minder.

Classic Belgian golden. Pleasantly in the fruit esther malt department and slightly spicey towards the back and finish. Classic!

Poured from a bottle, pours cloudy light amber, tastes of fight, raspberry and slight metallic. Not bad, not my type. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For a Belgian of this magnitude , it really lacks the luster. Has the strength if a hard Belgian, with a malt fruity and low hops. Still worth a try ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mmm, delicious. Effervescent, crisp, and dry. Nice amount of alcohol with a distinct and somewhat unique blend of the usual Belgian spices.

33cl bottle at BXL Zoute inNYC. Pours cloudy hazy orange with medium white head and lots of lacing. Alcohol and hops come through with some citrus aroma. A pleasant beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Little disappointing. Not a bad Belgian but nothing special. Slightly fruit and Spicey. Some lemon. Yeast, bread. Ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

#1070 Trübe im Glas mit unnatürlich viel Schaum, der aber schnell den Rückzug antritt. Aroma? Nee, nicht wirklich. Im Antrunk Malz und dann wird es deutlich alkoholisch-herb...Die 8,5% Alk. sind mehr als deutlich herauszuschmecken. Wirkt geradez sprittig; hätte ich beim Blind-Tasting für ein russisches Wodka-Pivo gehalten. Nee, das ist nichts für mich, eher was für Starkbierfans mit Hang zum Synthetischen.

Rating the 2012 batch from Het Snker. Pours with a towering head, and nice golden color (tulip glass). Closely resembles a Duvel in taste and body. Sought this one out and was rewarded with a nice drink!
