ordybill (327) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Poured from a 330CL bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a nice mix of beer and fruit Appearance- A murky golden yellow color with small white head; Taste- Had a grain and citrus flavor that melded nicely Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and has a creamy to oily feel. Pretty good Overall- I enjoyed this brew, it is not in my Hot 100 but worth drinking again.

J’ai mis cette Lucifer dans un verre à Duvel (duivel = diable), c’est marrant … Une ale blonde définie par son brasseur comme « une blonde ardente et diablement savoureuse ».... J’aurais préféré que het Anker utilise ce vocabulaire pour une Carolus triple, mais voilà il fallait bien un peu de marketing pour emballer ce produit de 2ème zone (excuse-moi, le diable...). Couleur doré moyen avec un tout léger voile. Bulles fines en fontaine au centre. Mousse blanche qui tient en nappage à 1 petit mm. Arômes de babeurre, candi blanc, pain blanc, pointe de massepain bon marché. 1ère bouche souple au goût très en retrait, avec une forme quelque peu rêche. Arrière-bouche sans tenue. 2ème avec des malts blancs vraiment inférieurs. Arrière-bouche inintéressante, avec des fausses notes. 3ème mieux intégrée malt et houblon. Arrière-bouche simple mais correcte. Longueur qui se berce d’illusions. On ne peut tromper à ce niveau … et ici ça descend. Jambes groupées, très légèrement marquées. Levure douce, mais très simple, de niveau basique. Alcool sans aucune tenue, il manque tous ses travaux. Finale banale. CONCLUSION : une bière qui a vraiment besoin du marketing pour faire croire qu’elle pourrait être bonne. Mais diable (sans jeu de mots) que peut bien gagner het Anker dans pareille aventure, sinon pour nous, raters et amateurs, perdre des points et un peu de crédit ...

TtV (147) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow, golden colour with a clear white top that fades somewhat. Aroma has malts but there’s a subtle sour touch to it. The beer is not your normal blonde. It’s more viscous and the sour touch is present here too. I like it!

Iznogud (1202) - CROATIA - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml at Carpe Diem, Zagreb. Pours hazy golden with white head. Yeasty aroma. Yeasty and spicy flavor. Alcohol is not well hidden.

paolo71 (62) - Alviano, ITALY - FEB 2, 2015
White, frothy, rocky head. Persistent. Golden pale yellow, a bit cloudy. Nose fairly intense, not very persistent. Honey, candy, a bit of sweet alcol. In the mouth good carbonation, good body, warming sensation. Not very rich of aroma and taste. Very drinkable.

thegreenrooster (3371) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pour is a very hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is kinda lagerish with some sweet pale malt and not much after that. Flavor is more of a pale malt sweetness with some Belgian yeast ester. Finish is sweet but with a decent fruitiness. A decent beer but kinda on the below average side as far as most Belgian beers.

Holmen1 (3022) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
0,33 flaske fra Belgisk Bryg: højt hvidt sæbeskum. Dejlig citrusaroma. Gylden, let uklar. Skummet varer helt ned. smagen er en blanding af citron og grønne æbler. Kort afslutning. Brusende mundfølelse.
