I had this on-tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, and was not very impressed. I remember having this a decade ago in Quebec and being quite a bit more impressed with it...but there’ve been a lot of very good beers that’ve come into my life since then.
It poured a hazy straw color with about a cm of white head in a tulip glass. Aroma was pretty hay-like and papery, and a bit oxidized. Flavor was more wet-newspaper with quite a bit of maltiness. There was none of the effervescence of say an Atomium, and none of the light spiciness of a Duvel. It was just sort of bland and disappointing. Mouthfeel was a bit flat and unremarkable.
If this is a representative sample of this beer, I would not recommend it. I had this beer on-tap at Ginger Man in Austin. Snot19kilo (103) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 Pours clear gold with heavy yeast flakes and small white head.Aroma is slight spice and heavy yeast. Flavor is about the same really can’t taste anything but the yeast and it’s very bitter.Drank a glass of this and poured the rest out. A waist of $7 will never buy or drink this crap again. Not every beer from Belgium is good and this proves it.! badazito (52) - - JUN 22, 2014
Aroma suave e sem destaque. Coloração amarelo ouro com excelente carbonatação, excelente formação de espuma e excelente retenção da mesma. Sabor muito suave e leve (lembrando nossas AMBEV, embora com teor alcoólico muito mais alto). Cerveja sem destaques (esperava mais dessa cerveja por se tratar do estilo belga) DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Fizzy looking & yellow tinted clear. Bright white head, tending to be quite lacey. Slightly yeasty aroma over a swillish background with a pinch of lemon and a smidgen of alcohol. Bland and lagery weak body..very swillish but hot with a slight bitterness in the end. Quite like chewing on a stepped on piece of dry grass. A peppery alcohol bit to it too...I’ll put $20 on it being bottom fermented, no matter what the damn label says..satan has been known to lie. Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Light, flakey, not unlike Pabst Blue Ribbon. Easily the most disappointing Belgian Strong Ale I have ever tasted. Don't waste your time or your money on this drainpour.

Hoofdsmaak is zuur en wat bitter.
Nasmaak is overheersend bitter. Weinig geur. Ruikt naar een ’gewoon’ biertje.
Duvel van Moortgat kan ik zeer waarderen, helaas dit biertje stuk minder. Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2003
Are some batches different? My sample is a pale yellow with a white rocky head. The nose is a muted spiciness of clove and cinnamon. The ABV is noted but it has to be experienced through a burst of effervescence that takes a while to subside. As such it doesn't have that Duvel sippiness(???) Hang on, this has ascorbic acid (E300) and Propan-1,2-diol alginate (E405) whatever the hell that is! Uh uh, do NOT do that!!! Low marks for my pissed-off factor when I don't know what I am drinking. Go to hell Lucifer. Duvel unto others as you would have duvel unto thee. veronika (410) - SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2004
Yellow with a nice head. Aroma from flowers, elder and citrus. Flavor brings way too much alcohol, peppery finish. I did not like this... Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2009
This is what a Budweiser/Miller/Coors would taste like if it had 8% alcohol. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2013
75cl bottle, expired april 1989! At home, shared with Mathieu87.
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, no foam whatsoever.
NOSE: alcohol, grains, very jenever like.
TASTE: jenever again, some sour apples...
Very nice experiment, but not worth drinking anymore off course... The regular Lucifer like taste is gone completely. No hops detectable anymore and fruity bitterness is replaced by alcohol warming feeling.
