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.

Yellow with a nice head. Aroma from flowers, elder and citrus. Flavor brings way too much alcohol, peppery finish. I did not like this...

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.

Damn awful, bitter, acidic, medicine-like flavor. Some mysterious spice flavor as well, like as if the drink was stirred with one of those scented, tree air fresheners for your car. A little grassy. The hops and the alcohol really bite you. Nasty, just plain nasty.

golden, clear (I didn’t see any cloudiness), medium body, bitter, ...an overall nasty experience taste wise: soft up front, but ended with a poisonous head & finish. I thought perhaps that (and the alcohol content) was why they called it Lucifer. Tried this at the Burp Castle in NYC.

Pale Golden Color, unappetizing aroma. Slightly Spicy flavor but not in a good way. The finish was awful.
