2013.01.03 - Het Anker Lucifer 11.2oz bottle in pint glass. Pours a hazy yellow, not really gold. A fat 1-2 finger white head subsides quickly to a white cap/film with some lacing. Aroma is yeasty and some phenol/esters (?), a bit earthy. Taste is carbonation and a mild bit of burn on the front end, a bit fruity maybe mild banana ester on the middle with mild sweetness, slight bitter on the back end. Seems like a well done beer, but not really my cup of tea. I like many Het Anker brews so I gave it a try. Enjoyable but not likely a repeat purchase for me.

thanatosti (1241) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Lucifer was very happpy to see me, and by that I mean the bottle was a gusher; always a shame to spill good beer. It turns out to be a hazy golden color with a white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Aroma and taste are in line with the most prominent example of this style, the Duvel, but less pronounced. All in all a decent Belgian strong blonde (which should be a seperate style on Ratebeer by the way).

Cobra (1100) - - DEC 12, 2012
750 ml brown Belgian bottle. Corked & caged. No freshness date seen. Loud pop released the cork. Plenty of carbonation in this monster. Poured out a cloudy, piss yellow color, with a decent foamy white head. Aromas are of straw, clove, some phenols, funky yeast. Flavors are of funky yeast, wet hay, stale sourdough bread, slightly hoppy too. Alcohol is well hidden, but does sneak up on you. Rich & creamy mouthfeel. Decent Belgian overall.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2012
750ml bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours bright, slightly hazy golden with a huge white head. Nose of soft fruits, dough, dusty hops, apricots, and some light almond notes. Taste adds sweetness. Not great, but I have a fondness for this style and this beer, though I’d take Duvel instead any day.

Con espuma blanca y densa, que persiste casi hasta el final de la cerveza. Rubia un poco turbia. Sabor acaramelado, ligeramente cítrico. Mejor fria.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2012
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Vibrant golden pour, modest haze not diminishing the brightness. Well carbonated, a bit prickly, and a soft nose of dry hops and some fruit. Not quite as overly sweet as the previous recipe, but still trending too much in that direction for me. Solid but not great.
