Sevenlee (1407) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellow with an enormous frothy white head. Aroma is very citrusy, coriander and yeast. Taste is sweet and also citrusy with some spices and straw. The finish is very lightly bitter with quite a strong warm alcohol flavour. Mouth feel is sparkly yet soft. Quite a nice Belgian, great on a cold winters night.

Very neat light-orange colour with massive white head. Aroma of sweet cookies, citruses and malt. Taste is medium sweet, not too alcoholic.

prawlie (1186) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2011
From Het Anker Brasserie in Mechelen, not sure if it was from the tap or the bottle, poured into a Lucifer tumbler. Nice fruity aroma, yeasty. Actually tastes very mild and a little disappointing. Basically its a mild and pleasany special brew. Too plain, but alright.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Het Anker Lucifer Pours pale straw yellow with a thick pillowy head and good retention. Aroma is somewhat full of cloves and some bubble gum notes. Unfortunately there was some band aid aromas as well. Flavor was pretty good with some mild Bazooka Joe bubble gum. Finish was dry with some mild fruity esters and a little cardboard.

thornecb (4539) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet caramel and hot hay aromas. Sweet and bready upfront turning to hot cookie in the lasting finish.

DutchDrebus (4308) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2011
Had this from tap when it was ABT beer of the month April 2010. Didn’t smell like anything special. Taste was just average.. Not bad, not good. Easy to drink.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle. A more or less clear one, straw to golden in color and with a dense, white head of moderate size. Some lacings. Fruity, alcoholic nose with grainy hints and a spice touch. Pale malts and lots of white sugar, some wheaty toffee too, and a spiced hint. And of course alcohol. Medium body, sweetish yet rather dry, and finishing with a pleasant bitterness. A beer that seems to be made to compete with Duvel, but it’s far from that good, rather edgy actually. 110624
