Pale yellow color with huge fluffy white head that lasts forever and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has light hops with strong spicy yeastiness and some sweet bubblegum. Flavor has strong spicy Belgian yeasts with mild malt. Pretty good overall, but pricey.

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!

MarkSachon (693) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2015
12 ox bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Thin and weak overall. Not quite up to a ’strong’ beer’s standards. Disappointing overall.

vipinvelp (2615) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2015
Amber with lacing lasting foam. Strong barley aroma and bitter taste. Some spice there, truly a nice beer. (Arnhem 201504)

abemorsten (3073) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
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!

wozap (245) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Pite pod koniec daty przydatności. Głębokie złote, piana drobna. Owocowe, słodowe, nuty drożdzowe. Ogólnie przeciętne.

Strykzone (5337) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2015
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.

Keg at Red Squirrel. Pours hazy pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of lime, lemon, yeast. Taste is more of the same. Fizzy, thin.

NikkTwist (1877) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2015
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.
