Pours a light golden amber, big fluffy head and spots of lace. The taste is mostly caramel with some highlights of candied fruit and juicy fruit gum. There is only a slight bitterness at the finish. The alcohol doesn’t overwhelm, but is present throughout. Decent, but there are others that are stronger entries.

Bottle. Blonde. Citrus and poire Williams in the aroma. Citrus flavor, slightly alcoholic, with some yeasty notes. Good stuff.

KyotoLefty (7112) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012 Draught at the Pig and Whistle in Kyoto. Golden, clear, with a great, big, tight head. Very malty, bready nose, grains, a bit of honey, spice. Sweet and simple flavor, very malty, bready, almost no bitterness. The old Lucifer tried to be Duvel, this seems like it’s trying to be Leffe Blonde. Boring.

Scrapersnbeer (1500) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2012
An evil beer with a yeasty, spicy and candied aroma. Very active with white foam head and thick yellow color. A taste that is equal parts sweet and tart, and a body that is light yet zesty. I had a very high expectation for this beer, and was somewhat disappointed that it seems slotted below the Carolus line up.

750ml bottle poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. Rating number 666, I figured this one would fit perfectly. Pours a cloudy dark gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast, green apple peel, a little caramel and a little citrus. Taste is light sweet and light sour. Green apple, caramel, dark fruits and Belgian sugar. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. I’ll gladly drink this one again, but maybe a 12oz next time.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - APR 18, 2012
Fine beer not not exeptional. It somehow tries to be a Duvel but it lacks some oomph. Not bad, not great.

33cl bottle. Pours a golden hazy colour with a nice head. Aroma of citrus. Medium body. Not bad at all.

mile (3291) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 13, 2012
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - wheaty and sweetish aroma, light caramel, fruitiness and some honey, faint hoppyness, yeast. Body is medium, malty - wheaty and sweetish flavor, light caramel, fruitiness and light spiciness (light coriander, faint pepper), faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - wheaty and sweetish, light caramel and some fruitiness, light spiciness and hoppyness, some yeast. Fruity Belgian ale - too sweet for me.

Ernest (6540) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (basement/cement), with a light note of pepper, hint of ammonia. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Pretty clunky, just like the Riva version. Meh.
