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!

Review: Bottle of Lucifer Beer: ABV: 8.00% Bought in Lidl and brewed by Het Anker. Attracted by the name and the imagery on the bottle, a very retro look, Lucifer himself holding a pitchfork surrounded by fire. Very bubbly on opening, an awful lot of carbonation, Jesus! Too much head, HUGE, that sticks around, forever. Takes ten minutes to die down, half the beer fizzled away, Must be the bottle, A murky yellow colour, not a good start. I dont know if it was the bottles but too much fizz, ridiculous, undrinkable. The smell was quite strong on the nose, wow. Can really smell the hops. Even though its strong it is pleasant to smell. A lovely beery aroma, with a sweet lemon citrus note. Very sweet taste, sweet malts initially, with a bit of fruit, Deep aftertaste, Ok, very bitter in the end, earthy hops, and lingers long Nice enough I guess, Manageable Very strong, can definitely feel the alcohol! Not sure about this one to be honest. Didnt really enjoy at the start, but there was enough in it to make me think again, perhaps that was the alcohol kicking in, which does creep up on you in this beer. Had a cunt of a head the next day, was hellish! Lol

750ml bottle: Pours a cloudy straw with good off white head that persists. Aroma of fruits, with a slight rustiness. Tastes of stone fruit and some rust. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. Overall not as good as I expected.

glennmastrange (2742) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle. Light to moderate caramel for the malt, light herbs perfume for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with tobacco and light dried fruit in the background. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, white, with thick but slippery lacing and is fully lasting. Color is murky amber/tan. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and very dry finish. Not the best Belgian Strong Ale, but still drinkable and enjoyable.

butelka, warka 23//04/2016. Jasne, slomkowe, metne, z mega piana nieco mydlana. Aromaty dojrzalych brzoskwin, przypraw, łąkowe. w ustach lekkie, wysoko wysycone, slodkie, brzoskwinie znow w posmakach. bardzo ladnie ukryty alkohol. sumarycznie - bardzo w porzadku, choc powtarzanie raczej nie bedzie kusilo.

Aroma of peach, apricot with sulfur. Pours golden with nice white head. Taste is quite fruity, some metallic flavour is noticeable, sulfur and alcohol bitterness at the finish. Overall pretty bad.

Robe blonde. Nez alliant fruit, pices, note houblonne et citronne. Bouche frache et harmonieuse entre ampleur et tension, belle bulle fine et finale raffrachissante. Une bire de soif malgr le taux dalcool.

mansquito (5728) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2016
At work: pours cloudy golden grey with a white head. Aroma is yeasty and lightly fruity. Taste has some nice amount of hops for a Belgian from Belgium. Some minerals. Alcohol is well covered. Relatively easy to drink. Not bad.
