ephemeral8 (67) - denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2010
style lesson 1: belgian golden ales (lucifer, pranqster, matilda, inferno) hazy peachy gold, small head nose: pal gum=candy sugar?, subdued in the nose, nasty soapy flowery developing mouth: white gummy bears, candied pineapple, pal gum, sugar, mild banana upfront. followed by YUCK!--oregano, some sort of gross maltiness. short, clean finish, but the rancid oregano malt lingers. vienna malt-toast w/ honey?

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - APR 24, 2010
Gustosa ale senza difetti, un tocco piccante, calorosa il giusto, ben bilanciata; niente di trascendentale, ma si beve bene ed Ť sicuramente meglio della Duvel.

3fourths (8293) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2010
sampled along side Pranqster, Matilda and Inferno, it faired slightly better than Matilda but significantly worse than Inferno (Pranqster was a distant fourth). carefully poured itís nearly crystal clear light gold with a small white head. straight belgian candy sugar nose with little to no yeast phenols (actually *too* clean) and little to no hop aromatics. syrupy and sweet up front with light touches of banana and plain yogurt, finishing thick and chewy like simple syrup. and thatís kind of what this really is: simple and syrupy.

dutchbeerpages (1668) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2010
Citrussy and cloudy. Not bad, almost like a white in a way. Not exactly what I expected from a beer named after the devil.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2010
On tap at Wildeman. Murky gold body with slight head. Nose of citrus and sweet honey. Taste also quite sweet with plenty of fruits dropping in. Warming towards the end, with high ABV apparent. Enjoyable.

Beerman6686 (4779) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2010
This poured a semi cloudy yellow color with a large white head. Aroma was sweet candie sugar, clove, and some banana. Flavor was lots of banana and some spices, but both are kind of cover up; by the large amount of alcohol taste in this one.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Pours a pale hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of yeast, some fruit and spice. Taste is yeasty and medicinal, can really taste the alcohol in this one.

TLNash886 (228) - Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2010
750 mL bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy, one finger head into... a Lucifer glass! Light, yeasty aroma with lemongrass, heat, almost floral with a little honey-like sweetness. Slightly bittersweet yeast favor profile, lemongrass, apricots, has an odd aftertaste I canít place. The abv is slightly noticeable, wish that wasnít there, but not bad. Light bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel and a mid-high level of carbonation. Not bad for a lighter, high abv Belgian, but Iíd prefer Duvel for the style.

rickgordon (3845) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2010
Draught at ZBF 2010. Cloudy golden colour with cottony/creamy head. Doughy cookie malt aroma, along with subtle almond paste. Medium, smooth body with dough and almond paste. Rounded maltiness and a dry alcohol bitter finish.

dnstone (2251) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Banana sweet aroma. A gold color with a strong white head. Overall rather light but sweet with that banana flavor off the yeast.
