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!

From 750ml corked and caged bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with thick foam like fluffy head that sticks around and leaves great lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, black peppercorn, apples, and bananas. Tastes of all the same things that are in the smell with a mildly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium and very chewy and very well carbonated almost reminds me of champagne as far as the carbonation. It also finishes dry. This is a really good Belgian golden ale. Nothing really sets it apart from other ones but Belgian beers are my favorite so it doesn’t take much to please. Definitely has one of the best heads and most lively carbonation I’ve seen for a Belgian ale.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Sød, dejlig, lys, minder lidt om delerium tremens. God smag, som ikke vælter mig bagover.

Matig smakende blonde tripel. Blijft vrij neutraal. Prefect in balans, maar de balans heeft een vrij neutrale smaak.

La Lucifer... Tiens donc, un "classique" marketing Belge (à la qualité inégale) au même titre que les Satan, Judas ou encore Duvel ! Quand on voit que c’est Het Anker qui se charge de la brasser, on se pose deux questions : est-ce qu’elle sera au niveau de cette mythique brasserie, ou est-ce que c’est la commande d’un produit de base que Het Anker se contente d’honorer ? Et bien contrairement à quelques uns de mes collègues, je penche pour la première option. Je m’explique. Versée blonde dorée translucide avec une énorme mousse blanche. Le nez est malté à souhait, avec des notes de rose, de mandarine, de caramel, de bois de cèdre, de résine, de sous-bois et d’œillet. Un nez simple mais floral et agréable. La bouche est souple, belle texture, bons sucres, alcool au niveau de ses 8% annoncés, des touches de miel, de cassonade, une amertume légère (24 IBU), du corps, une toute petite astringence et une carbonatation dans la moyenne. La longueur est bonne, sur le sucre et l’amertume plus un alcool qui réchauffe progressivement. C’est un breuvage très agréable au palet en particulier. C’est une bonne bière, pas franchement un must ni le top de chez Het Anker (on en est même très loin), mais elle ne mérite pas pour autant de subir la vindicte. Comparée aux Judas ou Satan, elle est bien meilleure sans pour autant aller titiller la Duvel... Mais au moins elle se boit tranquille ! Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

From bottle. Nice cloudy liquid. Can’t see through. Color is light orange. It has white cap, the biggest part of it located in corners. Typical Belgium strong ale tradition with its high alcohol percentage and overall taste. It is really fizzy and seems to be overcarbonated. Can’t really feel the aroma, but it is light and not attacking with flower notes. Taste is a bit sour.

Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Strong malty flowery aroma with honey and floral hops. Pours a hazy orange color with lasting fluffy white head Bready biscuity malt, honey, light hop spiciness. Well balanced. Light fluffy bodied, high frothy co2, quick bready sweet finish. Enjoyable beer, well balanced and easy to drink. Great mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
