Lucifer

DSC_0078

Brewery Het Anker, Mechelen, Belgium, 8.0% abv

Aroma: Bright malty aroma, with very little hoppiness. There is a fruitiness of green apples hanging around as well.

Appearance: Bright golden yellow in color, with a strong carbonation. It lifted a huge white fluffy head, that fell slowly to a rocky pillow.

Flavor: It shows a strong malty front, with a hint of sourness across the tongue. There are no hops showing, but it doesn’t harm the overall complexity in the brew.

Mouthfeel: Very pointed carbonation, with a lightness on the palate. It is smooth on the aftertaste, with a sour tang that really makes the brew.

Overall Impression: I love this beer. While the name may lead our thoughts to a darker place, this beer definitely leads us to a better place in life. Incidentally, I couldn’t help myself. I did this tasting on Good Friday.

 

Final Thoughts:

Hops:                    mug rating .5

Malts:                    mug rating 4.5

Flavor:                  mug rating 4.5

Overall:                 mug rating 4.5

Label:                    mug rating 5

Lucifer is burning on the label of this bottle, need I say more? It reminds me of Parry, thanks to Piers Anthony.
