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.

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.

fidelis83 (2120) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin, white head. Aroma of cereal, bready yeast, grassy hops, toast, spicy hops, and earthy fruit. Flavor is very bready, grassy hops, toast biscuit, banana, apple chips, hay and light mineral notes to the finish. Medium body, slightly oily feel, light, but sharp carbonation. Not bad.

Pours hazy gold with white head, lots of yeast. Aroma is spicy yeast. Medium body, lots of sweet yeast flavor with a little spiciness, little bit of banana, and some citrus hops. Some alcohol taste also. Lots of grainy barley taste on the malt side. Nothing spectacular but it does a really good job of hiding the higher ABV, very drinkable and pretty good.

Sweat, banana, wheat. A bear that tastes like summertime at a single A ballpark, like grass stuck in your mower.
