Duvel’s less known cousin? Fruity - citrus and banana. Rather sweet and somewhat bitter in the end. Lively carbonation and long finish. One of those typically Belgian beers, very enjoyable and interesting even if not that distinct nor original.

I expected more. I like the color and taste but it is not the best one in the style. I liked the 8% alchool.

ForlornHope (204) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Clear, blonde colour with a large white head. Aroma: lots of spicy, peppery hop with a yeast and malt background. Taste: slight sweetness then lots of dry, bitter hoppiness. Finish is dry and bitter with lots of peppery hop. Strong, but balanced with lots of hopping. Pretty good.

Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Hazy gold colour lasting white head. Some esters, some lemon on the aroma. OK in the mouth, a little dirty perhaps. Some peppery spicy hop on the finish. It’s ok but nothing special.

Metallic taste not what I expect from a Beligan ale wouldn’t get this one again.

Belgian strong Ale isn’t usually my style. To me, the aroma reminded me of farm, and they practically always taste what they smell. This one is no exception, but for the first time, I kind of enjoy it. Maybe a bit harsh with the heavy (after)taste of alcohol (yep, it could be painful in the morning).

Strong aroma. Thick white head. Metallic taste. Alcohol is really noticeable. Creamy in the mouth. Cheap logo design.

Mousse abondante. Gout évolutif de froment et de malt. On sent fort l’alcool en gorge. 8% me semblant fort bas.

Apesar do nome assustador, é uma ótima cerveja. Aroma discreto e agradável, dourada e sabor meio amargo com bom paladar.

Icedwarf (807) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2015
Licht troebel geel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is licht hoppig bittter en licht zoet.

electrotype (395) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Au nez, c’est vraiment très semblable à une Unibroue Fin Du Monde, qui se veut par contre elle une Triple. Des notes typiques de bières belges fortes sont présentes, de miel de fleurs, de poivre et d’épices légères. La mousse est cependant plus grossière que celle de la FDM, et cela semble présager un corps plus mince... Et c’est effectivement le cas. La Lucifer manque légèrement de diversité en bouche, est un peu mince, mais se boit incroyablement bien. Une bière à 8% raffraichissante? Il semble que c’est possible!
