COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

330ml squat bottle. Aroma is candy and grains. Almost a caramel corn smell. Pours very attractive. Rich gold with big white heat that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Taste is full with cereal and candy. This bottle is nearly 2 years old, so I feel the flavors have mixed and mellowed into this wonderful subdued mix. I will have to try a new bottle to see if that theory is correct.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Schöne weiße und feinporige Schaumkrone. Farblich bernsteinmäßig. Fruchtige und malzige Düfte, etwas alkoholisch. Antrunk perlig. Anschließend hefig und fruchtig mit einer Ahnung nach Pflaumen, beinahe die Zunge betäubend. Malzig und leicht brennend im Abgang. Ein sehr gutes Bier. 6666 - extra evil!Test vom 22.4.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Marzipanartiger, aber auch alkoholischer Geruch. Die 8% merkt man höchstens im Nachgeschmack, der am wenigsten gelungen ist, da er zudem noch metallern schmeckt. Dagegen punktet das Bier im Antrunk mit fruchtig prickelndem Aroma. Dabei ist es einigermaßen süß. Ein weiteres gutes belgisches Bier. Test vom 1.8.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 14,11,10,7,10,11 - 10,50

Much like Duvel; with the exception of lots of floaters and smaller head. Crisp and dry with Rye and wheat aromas. Good brew but would rather have a Duvel or La Fin Du Monde.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Draft at the Brew Wharf mini beer festival. Fruity with caramel and toffee notes. Complex and tasty.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 6, 2011
330ml bottle (Delirium Cafe, Brussels) BB2010-12, drunk 2011-01
5 Not much aroma, only slightly sweet light berries.
3 cloudy orange with sinky bits, small head. Delirium barman poured rather than us, grrr...
6 Gentle light grains, milky, absolutely no hint of alcohol, and it doesn’t taste like a big beer at all. Has some of the sweetness of fresh almonds.
4 Pleasant palate before you get to the sludge at the bottom (which squicks me a bit), good level of carbonation.
14 Aged very well, massively mellow and soft. Shame that it’s lacking some balls in the aroma department. Dunno if the new moortgat Lucifer will compare well to this, I hope so.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 (33ml bottle). When i think of beer and satan then ovbiously Duvel is sitting on my shoulder making me drink . This other satantic beer looks promising -big creamy head above a yeasty , murky , honey coloured liquid....nose is florals .. fruit esters. hay. honey . some rich malts. Its a bit shallow and lifeless to drink . Lotta yeast bite ..raw alcohol and flabby malt sweetness. Like Duvel without the soul and quality.

Pours a light golden color with a HUGE frothy thick white head. The aroma is a light malt with banana and citrus notes. Lacing stains the glass on this one. The taste is honey and a sweet vanilla finish. A well done belgian.
