From 750ml corked and caged bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with thick foam like fluffy head that sticks around and leaves great lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, black peppercorn, apples, and bananas. Tastes of all the same things that are in the smell with a mildly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium and very chewy and very well carbonated almost reminds me of champagne as far as the carbonation. It also finishes dry. This is a really good Belgian golden ale. Nothing really sets it apart from other ones but Belgian beers are my favorite so it doesn’t take much to please. Definitely has one of the best heads and most lively carbonation I’ve seen for a Belgian ale.

Cerveja dourada com boa espuma. Aroma equilibrado entre o cítrico, leveduras e dulçor do malte. No paladar, as leveduras se mostram deixando um sabor de banana. Muito boa!

12 ox bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Thin and weak overall. Not quite up to a ’strong’ beer’s standards. Disappointing overall.

Amber with lacing lasting foam. Strong barley aroma and bitter taste. Some spice there, truly a nice beer. (Arnhem 201504)

0,33 l flaske kjøpt i Platanias på Kreta. Lucifer er en sprudlende klar og gyllen djevel som bygger et håndsbreddehøyt gulhvitt skumlag som en stund truer med å renne over glasskanten. Flott blondemønster på glassveggen når skumtoppen etterhvert demper seg. Treaktige og krydret søte gjærtoner i nesa. Søt og krydret i munnen også. Fyldig kropp, flat og med en varig alkovarme. Fan tykje så lettdrukken!

Pite pod koniec daty przydatności. Głębokie złote, piana drobna. Owocowe, słodowe, nuty drożdzowe. Ogólnie przeciętne.

16 ounce can at Melt on Cherokee St. Very hazy golden with a steady white head of one finger. Belgian notes. This is a sweet beer. Plenty of orange flavor that is almost orange sherbert. Bready yeast and a hint of cloves. Not a classic Belgian.

Had a few times many years ago. Was not overly impressed and did not rate it. Now years later (and with some research apparently this beer changed hands many times since then) having an April 2014 bottle at Eulogy in March 2015. Cloudy yellow amber pour with a large frothy white head. Thick lace. Feels like a nice modest Belgium single. Notably fuller bodied than most (read Duvel) - very nice creamy texture. Flavors run typically Belgium. Citrusy orange bready notes. Not overly complex but nicely constructed. Pleasant.

Bottle. Slightly murky golden orange pour with frothy head. Aroma is mostly apple, apple cider, yeast. Hint of pear, yeast deposit reveals copper. Taste is relatively sour and astringent. Yeast deposit takes some of the sourness away. Aftertaste is apple juice, sticky.
