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!

Douberd (5240) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml, poured into a tulip at home. ABV 8% Clear deep golden yellow on the body, with a tall white, soapy head. Very good retention and heavy lacing left around the glass as the foam collapses. Steady stream of bubbles rising to the surface. Fruity aroma with lots of yeast, faint floral hops as well. Taste is also fruity and less yeasty than the aroma implied, with a nice refreshing bubblegum note on the aftertaste. Medium body, medium bubbly carbonation. Fairly dry on the palate. Overall quite typical belgian strong ale but it has this little extra something of Het Anker. Very good.

Wheaty white and sour aroma. wow. incredibly clean pear cider white color. with poppy white head. Much more balanced than I thought it would taste. Bit of a citrus zing a first but quickly reveals hints of pear, butter and cinnamon in the aftertaste. This is a beautifully complex beer.

Draft at brasserie het anker. Pours clear dark yellow with no head. Metallic smell and taste way too carbonated. Hmmmmm. No.

mgajdaczewa (1879) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Po przelaniu do szklanki wygląda jak jasne pełne z lepszą pianą - już jest ciekawie! W smaku nie jest tak przebiegłe, nie ma szatańskiego ataku alkoholu ani uderzenia wielością smakw... Jest poprawne, bardzo pijalne piwo. Nie tego oczekiwałem.

Belgian yeast aromas. Belgian yeast and sweet malt flavors. Overall fairly average.

visionthing (5006) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 24, 2013
From bottle at a tasting at Bar & Cigar. Almost clear golden with a nice, white head. Fruity aroma with Belgian yeast, malt, spices and a hint of hops and alcohol. Moderate sweet with a balanced bitterness. Well balanced and surprisingly easy drinkable. Pleasant fruity and yeasty flavours with some spicy notes. Nice Belgian.

Foffern (1762) - Bod, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy dark straw colour with a huge off-white head. Classic Belgian blonde aroma with Belgian yeast, sweet light malt, citrus, spices and some peach. The flavour follows up and is more sweet than other similar beers. Rich and smooth mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Solid, sweet and balanced. Dangerously easy-drinking.

jmgreenuk (8520) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle at Rootz, Den Haag. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is big yeast leading to a medium bitter big yeast flavour and not a whole lot else really. Its very Duvel like. A typical yeasty Belgian session beer. A style that had been around forever and has its place on a hot summer day. Nice and refreshing but I feel like its yesterdays beer.

worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Hazy gold with a soapy, lacy, white, lasting head. Smells of yeast that overwhelms the nose. Fruit, some grass and coriander. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of coriander, yeast, peach, with a dry finish that lingers
