Notes/Commercial Description:
Fallen Angel Golden Ale, first brewed on
6-6-6 [JUN 6, 2006], is named in the tradition of Belgian golden strong ales--after the devil himself. We call this beer our "original sin" because it spawned our 2007 Deadly Sin beer series.

Midnight Sun's Fallen Angel Golden Ale is a traditional Belgian-style golden strong ale--deep gold in color with tiny, conniving bubbles forming a very thick, meticulous head. Effervescent and crisp, this delicious ale tempts the palate with apple, pear and a little earthy mustiness. Its beauty and brightness is angel-like in appearance but the devil in is its strength.

35 IBU

Looks great out of the glass. It's a pale necatarine color, hazy. The head is a brilliant white, thick and frothy. Great retention and a sticky lace. Really an attractive beer.

They've found the Belgian scent. Classic notes of white pepper, pear, and green apple. You can almost smell the sweet, spicy flavors.

Comes up just a hair short in the taste department. Very yeasty. The pepper is dominant but never over the top. A bit of alcohol with each sip. Some hop presence in the finish.

There are layers and complexity to keep your palate guessing. There's a splash of citrusy fruit up front. The spicy pepper takes over soon after and never lets go. A savory hop character picks up from mid sip, at which point the alcohol warms things. A dry finish leaves your tongue with a bit of a warm pucker. Medium bodied and fairly tart.

One of the better beers I've had from Alaska. It's very close to something a Belgian would be proud to drink.

In a tulip this beer was a clear gold color. There was a minimal white head.

Grassy hops aroma. Some citrus. Sweet malt.

Grassy hops, Lemon. A little funky. Bready.

This beer was OK, with a neutral mouthfeel. I kind of liked it, but wasn't in love with it. I would probably drink it again, but wouldn't go looking for it.

2013 release. bomber into a teku glass.

Pours a crisp golden color with a inch in ch thick white, lasting head. Smell is of yeasty malts and lemon grass, lovely. The taste is real farmhousey/belgian yeast dominating your palate. Tad of bitterness at the end. Herbal, dry finish. Very sticky. Pear is the dominant fruit flavor but its mild. Not the best of the style but pretty good. Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall a good belgian styled ale. Recommended!
