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.

Like its name suggests, this stuff is wicked!! Real smooth and fruity taste, but after 2 of them you start to buzz.

Really an excellent Belgian. Definately a yeasty nose, but it has nice fruity tones throughout and a good hop bitterness that I enjoyed. Decidedly one of the better Belgians.

Pale gold, lacey white head. Smells strong, sweet, citrusy. Nice flavor. Good little burst of sourness and then leads lightly into a good bitter finish. Clean taste. Nice name.

Drinking one of these from a fresh bottle as I type. It poured a cloudy yellow with a tightly bubbled head. Solid carbonation. Great fruity, spicy aroma. "Sweet" fruity taste with a spiciness and a citric hoppiness. Bubbly mouthfeel with a mild alcohol presence. A friendly warming drink with a pleasantly bitter finish. Unfortunately, this was the last one in my ’fridge.

12 oz bottle Blam. This beer packs a velvet punch, masked by a slightly sour aroma. The frothy, fine-grained head gives way to a pale, yellow liquid that bites the tongue nicely on the way down. The taste is pure sweetness, but not overwhelming - just enough to dampen the burn of the alcohol and balance the bite of the hops.

Bottle as pictured, except with a cork instead. Pours a light golden color.. appears hazy gold in my trappist glass.. with an almost foamy head.. aroma is very pleasant.. theres a bit of fruit that is definitely welcoming.. can smell a slight alcohol scent as well.. light on the palate and again the fruits come through in the flavor.. I couldn’t place it at first but theres a constant taste of vanilla.. overall I wasn’t sure what to think at first.. but halfway through my first glass I decided I was enjoying the brew very much.. now on my second glass and this stuff is pretty delicious.. I would also like to add that it the aftertaste is dry, which Im normally not a big fan of but this is not bad!

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Schöne weiße und feinporige Schaumkrone. Farblich bernsteinmäßig. Fruchtige und malzige Düfte, etwas alkoholisch. Antrunk perlig. Anschließend hefig und fruchtig mit einer Ahnung nach Pflaumen, beinahe die Zunge betäubend. Malzig und leicht brennend im Abgang. Ein sehr gutes Bier. 6666 - extra evil!Test vom 22.4.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

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!

A: Light golden pale color, slightly cloudy S: Mild clove spice scent along with banana and fruit T: The taste of cloves translate from the nose to the palate strongly, not foreign to these types of beers. I generally don’t like Belgian beers, but I really enjoyed this one. The alcohol content warms as it goes down. O: I liked this beer a lot, I knew I couldn’t go wrong with a name like “Lucifer” and I was right. It was refreshing, clean and light, I look forward to drinking it again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
