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.

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 =)

Mmm, delicious. Effervescent, crisp, and dry. Nice amount of alcohol with a distinct and somewhat unique blend of the usual Belgian spices.

belgian golden ale. this is one of the better Duvel imitators - it even has a similar name. more citrusy than duvel but still enjoyable

The cork hit the ceiling--that’s pretty cool. More refreshing than a Corsendonk Pale, but less interesting.

I had this before Duvel and liked it VERY much. However, once I had Duvel I could appreciate the subtle diffrences in it. STILL it is a very good Belgian Ale.

A light spice aroma. Looks great. The flavor has a good spiciness to it up front. A little alcohol in the finish. Nice light color; much more like a tripel to me. Tasty beer.

I can never resist a beverage with a name like this! A great label too! This is a very, very strong golden ale. Unlike other Belgian Strong Ales, this one doesn't do as well of a job hiding its high alcohol content. Intense, tasty, aromatic nuttiness. Strong bitter hops. Slight wisps of vanilla. A wheaty beer (though not a "wheat beer"), grainy. Like a strong double-expresso this needs to be sipped.

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