Lucifer 8° -1/3L
New version of Lucifer brewed by Anker (after the take-over of Riva-Liefmans by Moortgat).
The beer pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a large white head, and the aroma blends light malts. The aroma of the beer is largely as would be expected for a BPA with a decent showing of some fruity smells of orange, peach, and banana along with some spice aromas of pepper and clove. Has a fizzy feel. Refreshing Belgian strong ale.

The Beer of The Week: Liefmans Fruitesse 3,5°
A very complex fruit beer matured on cherries with the addition of extra berry flavours. Lovely deep red colour and rich fruity aroma. Pours a deeper red than average, looking like raspberry punch with lots of bubbles hanging at the bottom. Taste has a certain dryness and bitterness which helps give this a more mature stance than the average fruit beer. Refreshing and just mildly tarty mouthfeel. Sweet cherry taste, but not too killer sweet. Very nice.
