drjay44 (2890) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2010
750 ml. bottle. Pours a huge white, tiny bubbled head, which gradually subsides into a lasting sea foam, with extensive lacing, over a hazy yellow (SRM 5) body.....nose is light cereal, with apple, pear, bit of citrus.......taste is light cereal to start, then light apple, pear finishing with a pleasant pepper, a light sweetness lingers throughout....mouth feel is light, carbonation high. This is a typical Belgian Golden Strong and meets the style almost perfectly. It has the appearance, nose, taste and mouth feel one expects. My only complaints are that it may be a bit too sweet, and lacks complexity. . BJCP 7/3/13/5/7

Oakes (13270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2010
Dull tan with thick haze. No particular head this time around. The aroma is apple, with other fruits and some dusty yeast influence. On the palate, this is brighter. There is a pear/apple note, a firm alcohol presence, an understated slightly biscuity pale malt notes and the yeast character is dry without being overwhelming. It finishes fruity - mango, pineapple and things like that. I like the new Lucifer, itís not Duvel but itís not bad.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 12, 2010
Bottled 750ml. -Slight cloudy pale orange coloured, medium sized white head, lively carbonation, spicy nose. Moderate malty, very spicy and not so alcoholic with notes of fruits and coriander. Pleasant as earlier version.

Butters (3942) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Sampled at lithys. Pours a lightly hazy dull yellow with large bright white head. Nose is bready vanilla and mild lemon. Very large effervescence. Sweet name to boot.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2010
33 cl bottle, shared with Roger and BjÝrnar. Golden color, big fine white head. Came out of the bottle bt itself. Aroma is fruit, yeast and citrus. Flavor is fine sweetness, fruit, spices, some alcohol, some bitternesss in the finish. Simple, but fine beer.

sunevdj (3424) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 30, 2010
Bottle at T&Mís. Pours a hazy yellow. Smells of glue. Sweet with hints of glue. Also some petrol and ethanol aromas. Hints of fresh abricots. Dry finish.

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.

3.3
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
3fourths (8495) - 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.
