3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Different label than one pictured on RateBeer.
Not a bad beer at all. Meets all the requirements of the style... golden, evedent malt, spicy, Belgain ale yeast flavor, and alcohol. Just as the commercial description says, this is actually fruity, which I donít personally find too much with Belgian golden ales...Iím guessing this is, in part, due to use of orange peel (another clue is the large amount of suspended "stuff" in the beer). Iím not tasting coriander, and I think that most of the spicy character comes from the yeast itself. Iíve had lots of Belgains that I didnít bother commenting on, but this one is notable... not the best, but quite good. It definately deserves a better rating on here. Good work Liefmans!

Bottle, 330 mL
Poured a dark, tarnished gold in color, with a thin head. Lots of yeast sediment. Nose has yellow apples and caramel. Extremely smooth texture, with a very good mouth feel. Overall, a decent beer.

I drank this in Belgium, cause it was the only thing I could pronounce at the restaurant. It was a good brew, but it wasn’t anything to write back to dad about.

Bottle as pictured, except with a cork instead. Pours a light golden color.. appears hazy gold in my trappist glass.. with an almost foamy head.. aroma is very pleasant.. theres a bit of fruit that is definitely welcoming.. can smell a slight alcohol scent as well.. light on the palate and again the fruits come through in the flavor.. I couldnít place it at first but theres a constant taste of vanilla.. overall I wasnít sure what to think at first.. but halfway through my first glass I decided I was enjoying the brew very much.. now on my second glass and this stuff is pretty delicious.. I would also like to add that it the aftertaste is dry, which Im normally not a big fan of but this is not bad!

Very slight cloudyness. Golden with compact white head. Generous carbonation but not out of control.
I smell a little grapefruit, a little citrus and lots of yeast. The flavor is average. Thereís nothing special here. At the end, there is a little kick that I wouldnít expect or want from an 8% abv beer. Itís ok. Itís drinkable, but I wouldnít save any room in the fridge or cellar for this one.

Lucifer has been a highly anticipated member of our cellar what with it's 8% alcohol content and fiery devil calling to me, I must admit I've been looking forward to this beer. The aroma is that of a yeasty berry mix, very pleasant and not overbearing. It pours a robust yellow, almost urine colour, with a white, frothy head that lingers. Yeasty taste with hoppy finish. The bead is lively with a fizzy aftertaste that bubble along your tongue. The strength isn't apparent until after swallowed, leaving a deceiving golden beauty that drinks so well. Devilishly good.

Great, clean beer with a good texture for such a light ale. Too bad my distributor has discontinued it...
