12 July 2015, tap at Midnight Sun. Yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is boozy, caramel candy. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Sweet caramel, green pepper. Nice enough.

Fruity zesty aroma of fruit like peaches and plum and bubble gummy yeast. Flavor similar with a touch of bread and heat. Pretty nice, if overpriced.

22 Oz bottle pour. Pours a light cloudy golden color with a quick fade head. Soft, sweet lemon citrus aroma with a yeast presence. Love the bottle art by the way. Smooth easy drinking lemon like flavor with a hiding belgian yeast background. Long, cool finish. Delicious beer.

On tap at 10 East - Very similar to Duvel in many ways, but doesn’t quite reach that level. A floral nose, light peppers, sweet fruits and touch of alcohol. Flavor of fermented honey, alcohol, hay and light pitted fruits. It wasn’t bad and a pint was just the right amount.

8%. Une bière dorée avec une superbe coiffe. Une dentelle de Bruges. Au nez, des malts blonds, du sucre candi, des épices à la belge, du poivre et une tonne de fruits jaunes sucrés. Au goût, des houblons et une levure prêtent à mordre. Des céréales qui réussissent néanmoins à être très douces. Des poires, des pommes et des ananas. Une bouche crémeuse avec un pétillement modéré. Une finale sur une amertume d’alcool avec de bonnes pointes acides. Bof.

Golden color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is yeast, spice, sugar, grass. Medium bodied, moderate to low bitterness, slightly sugary.

She pours a somewhat hazy golden yellow color and leaves the same colored body with a slim half finger white foamy head that dies within a half minute leaving some nice clingy lacing sticking tot he sides of the glass. The smell starts off with that "iced apples" thing I normally use to describe a fair amount of tripels and then combines with a very strong lemon and coriander sort of spicy character, some Belgian yeasty notes come out but they’re extremely subdued for the most part of the beer. The taste is bittersweet perhaps becoming tart through a combination of the lemon finding its way to intricate itself amongst the flavoring, super dry lemon-like aftertaste and finish. The palate is light to medium, harshness comes at me like a brick wall - wow - pummeling my taste buds into submission. Carbonation is not smooth in any sort of way. Overall, well, if anything this lives up to its name, its a fallen angel, one who is bitter and harsh for what it portrays to the drinker. For a Belgian Strong Pale Ale, I say this is good. Would I have this again, hmmm...., maybe, I think there’s a good chance. I could definitely see this with a nice broiled fish dinner, perhaps some King Salmon.

Sifter at Alehouse in SAMO. Well balanced Belgian-style golden. Dry with subtle spice. Smooth. Classic Belgian flavor.
