From 750ml corked and caged bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with thick foam like fluffy head that sticks around and leaves great lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, black peppercorn, apples, and bananas. Tastes of all the same things that are in the smell with a mildly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium and very chewy and very well carbonated almost reminds me of champagne as far as the carbonation. It also finishes dry. This is a really good Belgian golden ale. Nothing really sets it apart from other ones but Belgian beers are my favorite so it doesn’t take much to please. Definitely has one of the best heads and most lively carbonation I’ve seen for a Belgian ale.

Salmaneser (100) - 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 (130) - 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.

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 (893) - 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

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 3, 2016
Monumentális, örökké tartó hab, tiszta, arany szín. Enyhe, belgian ales, fűszeres illat. Íze kissé savanykás, belga ales, korianderes, és némileg pezsgős. Picit érezni az alkoholt, és egy kicsi élesztőt is. Utóíze a korty folytatása, de nem túl hosszú. Testes sör.

750ml bottle: Pours a cloudy straw with good off white head that persists. Aroma of fruits, with a slight rustiness. Tastes of stone fruit and some rust. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. Overall not as good as I expected.

glennmastrange (2604) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle. Light to moderate caramel for the malt, light herbs perfume for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with tobacco and light dried fruit in the background. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, white, with thick but slippery lacing and is fully lasting. Color is murky amber/tan. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and very dry finish. Not the best Belgian Strong Ale, but still drinkable and enjoyable.

butelka, warka 23//04/2016. Jasne, slomkowe, metne, z mega piana nieco mydlana. Aromaty dojrzalych brzoskwin, przypraw, łąkowe. w ustach lekkie, wysoko wysycone, slodkie, brzoskwinie znow w posmakach. bardzo ladnie ukryty alkohol. sumarycznie - bardzo w porzadku, choc powtarzanie raczej nie bedzie kusilo.

Aroma of peach, apricot with sulfur. Pours golden with nice white head. Taste is quite fruity, some metallic flavour is noticeable, sulfur and alcohol bitterness at the finish. Overall pretty bad.
