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.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 15, 2013
12oz Bottle, purchased at Warehouse Liquors - Duluth, MN. My first Iowa tick! Warm banana, spice, and cooked fruit aroma. Clean. Flavors are good. Light sweetness, good mineral profile, light clove and herb presence. Dry. A little on the rubbery side of the Belgian phenols for me, but this isn’t bad. Glad I got the chance to try it.

Sampled at Repeal of Prohibition fest 2013 at Schlafly Bottleworks - Pours golden blonde with a light haze and white head. The aroma has bananas, clove, raw dough and fruity Belgian yeast. It has medium / full body with light carbonation. The flavor starts sweet and sugary with nectar fruits, spice and mild banana. The finish has mild spicy hops. Pretty good.

Sampled at the Schlafly ROP 2013. It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of lemons, some dry yeasts, and some ripe rotting fruit. The taste was of lemons, dry Belgian malts, not hot despite a higher ABV. Very good.

seymour (1401) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2013
Tasted at the 2013 Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition fest in a mini Willybecher glass. It poured a mostly clear orange-tinged golden colour with moderate white foam and Belgian lace. Grainy, with strong pilsener impression, low-level earthy and pepper notes from hops and yeast. Slight residual sweetness. Nice, mellow, subtly balanced aromas and flavors. Light-medium body, average carbonation, bready mouthfeel, relatively dry finish. Deceptively smooth and drinkable for 8.5% alcohol, warming but otherwise well-concealed. I love the Styrian Goldings and Celeia hops in the description but I confess I wouldn’t have been able to identify them at such low dosages. Overall another tasty, well-crafted brew from Peace Tree.

chickenflea (327) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2013
12oz stubby bottle bought at Hyvee liguors in Cedar Rapids. Poured a crystal clear yellow gold body with a very small foamy white head. (Recommend leaving the yeast in the bottle on this one. Did not find that it improved the taste or texture.) Aroma is very yeasty, lots of esters, ripe banana, slight white pepper, bready, and apricot. Thick body with chewy texture. Soft carbonation with a consistent uncomplicated taste and finish. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma, yeast, straw, bread crusts, lemon drop, slight bubble gum, some white pepper, and paper napkin. A very pleasant beer.

theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - FEB 11, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 12 oz stubby bottle left behind at my New Years party by a neighbor. The pour is mostly clear golden yellow, with a one inch white head that falls with no lacing. The aroma is straw, malt sweetness, and an herbal yeast Tripel nose. The taste is the herbal straw, round full sweet malt, more of the herbal, and light banana clove yeast. The palate is medium to light bodied, fairly low carbonation with the yeast notes lingering in the aftertaste. Alcohol is decently masked.
