COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an unfiltered Belgian Style Blonde Ale. The beer is blonde in color from the pale malted barley varieties. It is delicately hopped with Styrian Golding and Celeia for medium bitterness and aroma. Sugars are added for higher attenuation, following the practices of some Belgian brewers. Belgian ale yeast is used to add complex flavor esters. This beer is unfiltered and yeast is left in for additional conditioning. The beer is named Fatale because it is 8.5% alcohol by volume and will catch up with you if you’re not careful.

I was into Belgian Trappist Ales back in the 1970’s when Chimay was $6.00 a bottle. Blonde Fatale commands the highest price among 6-pack standard brews by Peace Tree in it’s home State. It’s a barely tolerable Belgian Ale worthy for dumping two bottles in a Bubba Keg over ice for mowing the lawn. Beyond that, forget the brand.

JBPortland (749) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle pours hazy dark orange with a few bubbles but no real head, looks undercarbed...not off to a great start. Nose is huge banana bread and funky fruit, wheat. Taste is a banana bomb, some faint buttery fruity notes, cereal, yeast. Palate is near-flat and slick. Finish is a fruity yeast and banana bread. Didn’t finish. Messy.

malrubius (1685) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle from Johns. Bright gold with ring. Very sweet sugary aroma with herbs and glue. Very sweet fruit peach apricot with mildly astringent herbal bitter finish. Cloying sugary watery aftertaste. Fine carbo adds to astringency. Just sits there with no head or lace. Sugar added for "higher attenuation" should not make the beer sticky sweet and thick. This is off in every way. Blech.

Prufrockstar (919) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Draft. Clear orange-amber. Aroma is mostly bubblegum. Taste: sweet, bubblegum, light citrus, floral, very little bitterness, maybe a little butter. Palate: full body, slick texture. Overall: needs work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold slight haze depending how you pour it. Light head. Frothy sugary lace. Heavy ripe fruit aroma with citrus and spice,bready with light sweetness. Slight dry woodiness. Taste is similar to aroma with more spice/citrus in finish. Peppery. Light dryness.Little bit of bannana/clove but citrus overpowers that. Some grassyness. LIght sweetness.Not much alcohol presence at all. Pretty good. Not real big on the style but I like this one.

Bottle from Casey on the Black Country tour. Cheers my friend. Great to see you and Traci for the first time in 3 years. Hope you’ll come back soon It’s an aromatic authentic Belgian blond ale. If you hadn’t told me it wasn’t Belgian I’d struggle to tell you, perhaps a bit too clean and a bit too hoppy to be pure Belgian. Bit of perfume on aroma. Decent beer.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light pale and grainy malts, fruity/peachy sweetness, and light spicy yeast. Not bad.
