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.

Color rubio pajizo. Espuma densa y abundante al principio, ligera al poco tiempo pero duradera. Aroma a cítrico y plátano. Sabor ácido y burbujeante. Ligero toque especiado y amargo.

mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2016
At work: pours cloudy golden grey with a white head. Aroma is yeasty and lightly fruity. Taste has some nice amount of hops for a Belgian from Belgium. Some minerals. Alcohol is well covered. Relatively easy to drink. Not bad.

750 ml corked and crowned bottle. Pours a pale gold with a thick mousse-like white head. Excellent lacing. Fragrant lemony malt nose has yeasty notes. Flavor mirrors nose with notes of biscuit malt and lemon peel. Refreshing, with a crisp bitter finish. 8%. ABV is barely noticeable.

De cerveceria Het Anker "Lucifer" una Belgian Golden Strong Ale. Cerveza de color pajizo, turbia por el acondicionamiento en botella, bastante carbonatada y con una retención de espuma, característica de las cervezas de manufactura belga, perlas medianamente compactas, que van dejando huella en las paredes del vaso y se mantiene hasta el final. En aromas presenta un carácter a levadura principalmente que tiende a generar ésteres frutales como a pera, manzana, algo de naranja y especias, clavo y canela, el lúpulo es imperceptible, azucares son presentes y algo de grano de cebada. En el paladar es bastante seca con un cuerpo ligero-medio, sabor predominante de la levadura principalmente dando un sabor a pera, algo de clavo, canela y dulzor de malta y azúcar, tiene cierta frescura proveniente de un tono a jerez, un amargor moderado, que remarca el tono que es igualmente seco en el retrogusto, el alchohol se destaca bastante. Una Ale de Belgica con un contenido de 8% de alcohol.🍷

The_Osprey (4887) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle shared at the 42nd floor tasting as ’Lucifer’, picked up in London purely because of the name. Clear yellow, sparkling, huge foamy white head, thick lacing. Aroma is clean, lager-like, biscuity, spice. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is biscuity, alcohol, papery finish, quite sweet. Very basic. Clean and simple.

On tap at Max and Joes 2014. A cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of yeast, some mild fruits. Taste is fruity, spicy, malts, a touch of alcohol and just a bit of hops. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation..

Scopey (10658) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle at the second 42nd Floor Tasting. It pours hazy pale gold with a thick white head. The nose is paper, straw, grassy, powdery, floral, light spice and lemon peel. The taste is toasty, earthy, lemon rinse, white bread, cracker, grass and some warming alcohol. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Drinks pretty easy for what it is. A bit sweet of course, but actually alright.

susonagger (134) - spain, - DEC 10, 2015
golden ale de color dorado pálido, con elevado nivel de carbónico y mucha espuma nívea, que a pesar de la alta graduación permanecía durante largo rato en gran parte sustentada por la acentuada carbonatación, que en este caso resta sabor adormeciendo las papilas gustativas, y creando una sensación de picor un tanto desagradable, acentuada por especias como el clavo. Aromáticamente afrutada y especiada, de gusto ácido y con un regusto seco, muchos cerveceros la consideran una imitación no muy lograda de la Duvel, sin llegar a su nivel y una vez probada lo cierto es que es precisamente la descripción más acertada

EithCubes (5371) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2015
11.2oz/33cL bottle with a double label (lucky, I guess?) and a marking of 31/07/12 on the bottom [Dutch] one. Nose sweet and candyish, pours clear but dark golden with a huge level of carbonation and a huge, frothing white head. Taste is dry and digestible with alcohol warmth and strength, sweetness at the edges but only wispy and not from sugar. Malt is thin and pils-y, body is thin but supported by the bubbles. Relatively clean but a little muddled and generally bland. Very delicate bitterness with a smidgen of hay, dash of wood. Not too much character from the yeast (downright neutral for a Belgian). Efficient alcohol transference mechanism with a shade of naughty class? [2015.12.09: 3.3]

The brew fails too short on a dominant alcohol flavor. Behind this there is a sweet maltiness and slight crisp hop flavors.
