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!

3.3
inbirraveritas (1576) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 18, 2011
Hazy deep golden colour with a big white head, which diminishes relative quickly to a thin film. Sweet-spicy smell. Tart, citrus-fruity aroma escorted by honey and herbals underpainted by light alcohol. The medium kinded, tart and dry finish brings citrusses and peppery, warming alcohol along, which leaves a tart aftertaste behind. Nicely balanced and easy drinkable.

thomat (3858) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2011
Pale golden with a large white head. Fruity with malty notes. Malt, fruit and sweetness. Full body with a balanced, sweet finish.

musinj6 (506) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bready, doughy aroma. Pours opaque golden color with extraordinarily frothy head. Very light on the front with light sweetness, but finishes mildy bitter and a little salty. Very light body with thin texture with average carbonation. Finishes bitter and abruptly. Overall a fair beer. Not overwhelming experience.

3.7
olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle at a pub in Lier, Belgium. It poured a hazy yellow-golden liquid with a big white head. Fruity and yeasty smell with some spices. Similar taste but with a pinch of hops. Surprisingly well made, easy to drink with a dangerously high ABV that I hardly noticed.

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of yeast. Kind of a pear smell too. Taste has some musty, dusty yeast to it. Bit of a apple taste I think, kind of a red delicious flavor. Bit of bread too. Overall a fruity yeasty taste, I really like this beer! Very tasty considering the ABV. I don’t think I’d get this over another Belgian Strong Ale considering in these parts it’s fairly expensive (like 5-6 bucks per 12 oz) but it’s definitely a really good beer. 8% alcohol.

3.3
phaleslu (10247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft at The Bridge. Pours a mostly clear, pale straw gold with a small but resilient bone white head. Aroma of banana, pale and bready malts, candi sugar, tropical fruit, and grains. Flavor of banana, bready malts, hay, candi sugar, dry grains, and crackers. Medium-bodied, with a bready, malty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Dry finish. Decent strong Belgian ale. Doesn’t live up to its name.

3.8
Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - SEP 26, 2011
750. bottle- Pours cloudy straw yellow with a nice large 3 finger white head and good lace. Aroma is banana, clove, Belgian yeast. Taste is very Belgian, that unique flavor that only Belgian ales (and the clones) have, very yeasty. The body is medium, carbonation is lively, bubbles dancing on the tongue like champagne. Overall very good, but can’t match the greats (Delerium Tremens, Duvel, Rochefort).

3.3
Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2011
Bottle form Csakajosor.hu. Poured somewhat hazy, with a golden color and an off-white, lively foam. Yeast, honey, peach, hints of cinnamon and hops in the aroma. Medium dense, highly carbonated, somewhat oily body. Sweet, yeasty aftertaste. Not bad, not great. OK.

3.2
50belair (3643) - Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle at WOB. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a huge white head. Definitely over-carbonated. Lemon, coriander, and yeast aromas. The taste is a little bland and was dominated by Belgian yeast, muted citrus, and spice notes.

3.5
paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2011
slightly opaque straw yellow. fluffy white head. Nice strong belgian pale ale with a decent amount of hops. Sweet pale malts, belgian spices with a solid carbonation rate. some nice hop characteristics, but light.
