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!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle at The Bow Bar. Pours a cloudy light straw colour with a huge frothy white head. Typical Belgian tripel nose with candy sugar and peppery, spicy notes. Flavours of barley, sweet caramel and candy sugar with a nice spicy, hop finish. Medium carbonation with some CO2 prickle. Better than expected with a light blueberry linger.

Bottle from the Utah State Store. Pours into my Rochefort glass a nice cloudy golden color with a thick creamy white head. A sweet nose with some sugars, cloves and banana and pepper. The flavor is a smooth easygoing brew; light citrus, orange peel, sweet malts, banana, some light herbal notes. Quite nice.

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellow with an enormous frothy white head. Aroma is very citrusy, coriander and yeast. Taste is sweet and also citrusy with some spices and straw. The finish is very lightly bitter with quite a strong warm alcohol flavour. Mouth feel is sparkly yet soft. Quite a nice Belgian, great on a cold winters night.

prawlie (1531) - ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2011
From Het Anker Brasserie in Mechelen, not sure if it was from the tap or the bottle, poured into a Lucifer tumbler. Nice fruity aroma, yeasty. Actually tastes very mild and a little disappointing. Basically its a mild and pleasany special brew. Too plain, but alright.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Het Anker Lucifer Pours pale straw yellow with a thick pillowy head and good retention. Aroma is somewhat full of cloves and some bubble gum notes. Unfortunately there was some band aid aromas as well. Flavor was pretty good with some mild Bazooka Joe bubble gum. Finish was dry with some mild fruity esters and a little cardboard.
