2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 another beer offering duvel the sincerest form of flattery. very pale with enormous frothy, excited head. smells of raw barley grain, tinned fruit, and faintly of glue (ingredients list contained a few numbers...). lightly salty, smooth honey body followed by burst of raw vodka, and a moderate bitterness that dries everything up in a very abrupt finish. rer8: nasty chemical taste. blah.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large, bubbly head, which dissipates quickly. smells quite earthy and a bit peppery aswell as citrus scented detergent, and perhaps green apples. Taste is kind of a mix between, caramel, citrus, soap, yeast and peppery spice, then the bitter hoppiness kicks in at the end, quite dry aswell. Not as good as Duvel, but i guess its OK.

Strong kick of alcohol. A little slight on the flavor at first, but picked up vanilla and citrus in the malts as it warmed up. No particular lingering flavor after the swallow. Good, but not particularly memorable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good taste with accents of spicyness. Average palate. Itís comparable with Duvel, but to my opinion Duvel is better.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Bottled. Time for a re-rate I thought. And it didnít turn out to good for Lucifer. Donít know whether my tastebud changed or the beer did, but really donít like it anymore. Couldnít finish the whole bottle. Hoppe herbal and light grainy aroma. Pale yellow color, light hazy, white head, good lace. Bitter, some veggies, medicinal bitterness. Alcoholic and metallic. Hard drink, harder to finish.

One of the first beer in my drinking career, and it was a good one. Bit mild fruity flavour.
