2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ Belgisk Bryg, Cph.
Pours pale yellow, good deal of bubbles. Small, frothy white head nice duration. Aroma is a bit metallic, some yeastiness and biscuity malts. Light citrusy. Fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely sweet, good maltiness. Still a lingering off-note of metal. Rather sweet and the metal doesn’t do it any favours.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Only slight grapefruitaroma. Strong hopbitter taste with a bit of citrus. Duvel-clone, but with less aroma, taste, complexity and power.
Other bottle-type, other label, other breweryname (Liefmans Breweries), but the recipe is probably the same. Very blonde, this Duvel imitation. Soft chalky lemon-like aroma. Flowery, hoppy, honey-like flavor with lime. Dryish with just a bit of fruity sweetness. Not bad, but Duvel is better.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Delirium Cafe, Brussels) BB2010-12, drunk 2011-01
5 Not much aroma, only slightly sweet light berries.
3 cloudy orange with sinky bits, small head. Delirium barman poured rather than us, grrr...
6 Gentle light grains, milky, absolutely no hint of alcohol, and it doesn’t taste like a big beer at all. Has some of the sweetness of fresh almonds.
4 Pleasant palate before you get to the sludge at the bottom (which squicks me a bit), good level of carbonation.
14 Aged very well, massively mellow and soft. Shame that it’s lacking some balls in the aroma department. Dunno if the new moortgat Lucifer will compare well to this, I hope so.
