COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

Bottle, pours a clear yellow with a white head which fizzles down to a thin rim. Nice sweet aroma, spicy taste. I had this after just getting out of this 100 degree heat were getting in the NE. It quenched my thirst very well.

Bottle (330ml). I thought that Ale beers are not my "Style" at all but at the end of the day, after trying Lucifer i realised that there is the Oasis in the middle of the dessert. Golden colour, great taste, lots of alcoholwithout making the beer so strong.

Like its name suggests, this stuff is wicked!! Real smooth and fruity taste, but after 2 of them you start to buzz.

With a name like Lucifer, i was expecting a hard, alcoholic beer that would knock me to the floor. but instead a got a sweet, weissbier taste, with a good aftertaste. golden in color, good head, and very easy to drink. having another one later =)

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.
