COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucifer entered the market in the early 1980s under the label of the Riva brewery. It was an extension to the popular segment of strong, blond beers. In 2009, brewery Het Anker obtained the right to brew and commercialize Lucifer.

Lucifer is a strong, blond beer (8.0%) with a gold yellow color and creamy white head.
Its fruity aroma with subtle notes of bitter hops, followed by a long and perfectly balanced finish, will definitely seduce you!

JorgeLee (2043) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle, Kris Wines. Light golden colour, deeper than Duvel but still light. High carbonation and monster head, with that classic middle of glass sparkle. Really impressive fruity aroma, pears and indefinable spice, noble hops and Belgian yeast. Taste not quite following, not having the impossible lightness of some, but still very drinkable and moreish at its strength.

Xenomorph (62) - Sundgau, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2013
Mousse gnreuse et onctueuse. Bire blonde. Entre de bouche puissante, forte prsence dalcool. Fin de bouche sche. Persistance moyenne. Bulles fines et bonne amertume (bien dose). Bire agrable mais pas trop dmoniaque comme son nom pourrait le suggrer.

Fashawn (595) - ITALY - NOV 15, 2013
Aroma : Profumo Fruttato, con presenza percepibile di Cedro. Aspetto: Birra di colore giallo acceso, quasi torpido. Bella la schiuma bianca, persistente e corposa. Sapore: Birra molto dolce, pochi richiami aciduli veramente lievemente percepibili Palato: Corpo medio, Incredibile carattere molto secco. Il finale astringente, e si avverte la luppolatura. Lalcool si fa sentire, anche se la birra molto ben bilanciata. In definitiva, una ottima birra da meditazione. Da provare, e da apprezzare. Non una cattiva birra, assolutamente.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 Bottle 33cl. Hazy golden yellow color, big white head, recedes slowly, nice lacing; nose at first very fruity, orange, followed by honey and bread, yeasty, spicy notes, citrus; taste dry, sweet taste with mild citrus flavors; medium body, average carbonation, spicy moutfeel, long medium bitter finish. Retasted 150130, draught @ t Ankertje aan de Dijle, Mechelen. Slightly higher rating (was 3.7.), taste more mellow and spicier than bottled version.

beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 28, 2013
750ml bottle that pours golden but murky with fluffy white head. Has a juicy fruit nose. More dry than sweet with mild citrus flavors mixed with tart apples. Easy to drink. Palate cleansing finish. This could pass as a mild Triple. Always a good one.

emacgee (4671) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Pale blonde pour with two fingers of sticky white head. Nose is meeeeh, raw Belgian esters and raw bread dough with a touch of spice. Some stone fruits and touch of acidity. Flavor lean towards bread dough and yeast upfront withsome white fruit and spice. Medium light bodied.

RexTalionis (3713) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 06/12/2014. Pours unclear golden in color with a massive foamy white head. Sweet ripe fruityness, some doughy notes and bit of spicyness, perhaps a bit like old cardamum in aroma. Sweetish marzipan, light boozyness and semi-biting spicyness in taste. Leaves one with a sweetish sugary aftertaste. Not spectacular but something intriguing with this one for the moment though. Perhaps the good drinkability combined with some sweeter notes was just right at this time.

tfredvik (1912) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2013
Pours a very hazy, medium golden body with a large, creamy, white head that stays finger-thick until my glass is empty (apart from lots of lacing). The aroma is strong, I get fruits, spices, honey, yeast and faint pale malts. The long-lasting finish is moderate bitter. Rather strong flavours with bubble gum and alcohol, in addition to the elements found in the aroma. Oily texture, medium body, lively carbonation. Lovely!

bartlebier (3929) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2013
33cl from brewer, Brugs BF 2013. Clean and lean apple&pear (with yeast banana) Belgian golden ale with standard tripel characteristics so typical that this has become exactly the degree zero of brewing for me: like your tasting buds are listening to Emerson, Lake & Palmer in an elevator...
