KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced slowly, down to a heavy film with a large collar which possessed some excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a funky barnyard Belgian yeast and a light grain malt with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), toffee, a mild fruitiness and a slight alcohol scent. The taste was lightly sweet with a malty citrus note in the beginning, and then became very yeasty and a bit sour with a hint of green apple and a slight peppery alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a nice mild fruity funky yeast taste left behind. Mouthfeel was light in body and creamy in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a very good Belgian Ale with a nice fruity citrus presence, that along with a good mix of yeast and alcohol helped make sure that no one flavor was so overpowering that it overshadowed any other. This brew was very tasty and rather refreshing for a beer that has such a high ABV…

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.

karpik (468) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 14, 2016
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.

Ysok02 (755) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2016
Robe blonde. Nez alliant fruit, épices, note houblonnée et citronnée. Bouche fraîche et harmonieuse entre ampleur et tension, belle bulle fine et finale raffraîchissante. Une bière de soif malgré le taux d’alcool.

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 (4968) - 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.

Yased (90) - MEXICO - JAN 14, 2016
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 (5487) - 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.
