Solid Belgian Golden. Aromas of honey and fruit with a touch of yeast. Deep golden with a pillowy white head. Balanced but a little towards the sweet side. Medium plus body with lively carbonation and a crisp finish.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Bright golden coloured with a thick head of white foam. It has a sweet fruity and slight floral flavour followed by an earthy, herbal warming finish. Ok.

danlo (2381) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
330ml bottle from the Cheese & Wine shop, Darlington. Golden colour, frothy white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of banana, meringue, fruity, yeasty. Taste is grain, fruity & yeasty, sweetish, with a banana note, plus a little spice and some booze. Foamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry earthy boozy finish. Nicely drinkable.

pityu (560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle - Hazy deep golden colour, medium whithe head, good retention. Typical belgian ale aromas, some fruity esters, yeast, no hops. Taste is also typical belgian, quite boring. Medium body, moderate carbonation, a bit watery texture, yeasty finish. Not bad, just boring.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle at PIB 2016, pours a hazy dull yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out lots of Belgian yeast upfront, with lots of bubblegum and dry crackery malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with bubblegum and Belgian yeast in good harmony. Not overly complex but it works well.

Salmaneser (104) - BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2016
33 cl bottle @ home. Deep golden beer with medium white head. Hoppy aroma with a fresh citrus tint. Taste is sweet, with some malts and banana, and finishes with a mild bitter touch. Decent taste, but pitty the palate is a bit watery. Light version of Affligem.

AdolfoCC (146) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - JUN 18, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar con algunos destellos amarillo y naranjas a contraluz, se observa algo turbia y una moderada actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma de color blanco y buena retención, de burbujas muy compactas. AROMA: ligero dulzor, notas de plátano, pan, pimienta, algunas notas de cítricos es lo que principalmente domina. SABOR: similar al aroma, el condimentado de la levadura belga bien presente, algunas notas de pimienta, algo cítrico, ligeras notas a plátano y cierto dulzor de las maltas que no llega a empalagar, todo redondo y de manera armoniosa; en el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero con persistencia muy ligera del dulzor que no empalaga. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, mediana a alta carbonatación. RESUMEN: una buena belgian ale, similar a la Duvel.

bhensonb (13825) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours light translucent gold with a strong white head. Aroma of pale malt and herb/grass. Med + body. Cancel the herb, make it grass/spice and hints of banana and pale malt. Clean, not very bitter, and not quite dry. Yet the flavor is very nice.

TrefwoordPunk (900) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a small white head and an aroma of yeast, ripe fruits, sweet malts, spices, brown sugar and lemon. The taste is medium sweet with a slight bitterness in the finish. Pretty nice

Review: Bottle of Lucifer Beer: ABV: 8.00% Bought in Lidl and brewed by Het Anker. Attracted by the name and the imagery on the bottle, a very retro look, Lucifer himself holding a pitchfork surrounded by fire. Very bubbly on opening, an awful lot of carbonation, Jesus! Too much head, HUGE, that sticks around, forever. Takes ten minutes to die down, half the beer fizzled away, Must be the bottle, A murky yellow colour, not a good start. I dont know if it was the bottles but too much fizz, ridiculous, undrinkable. The smell was quite strong on the nose, wow. Can really smell the hops. Even though its strong it is pleasant to smell. A lovely beery aroma, with a sweet lemon citrus note. Very sweet taste, sweet malts initially, with a bit of fruit, Deep aftertaste, Ok, very bitter in the end, earthy hops, and lingers long Nice enough I guess, Manageable Very strong, can definitely feel the alcohol! Not sure about this one to be honest. Didn’t really enjoy at the start, but there was enough in it to make me think again, perhaps that was the alcohol kicking in, which does creep up on you in this beer. Had a cunt of a head the next day, was hellish! Lol
