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.

12oz cool ass stubby bottle from JCWatts, thanks John. Poured a good looking clear yellow gold body with a smaller foamy bright white head. Upon pouring the last few drops some giant dollops of yeast plopped into my DDC tulip. Aroma is very yeasty, lots of esters, ripe banana, slight white pepper, bready, dough, bubble gum and topical fruits. Body is rather nice with a medium mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation with an average duration on the aftertaste and a slightly delicate mouthfeel overall. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma, yeast, bread crusts, lemon rind, slight bubble gum and some white pepper. This was a nice surprise. Nice beer.

This was terrible. I understand what they were trying to do with the Belgian yeast, but it was too much. The tasted infected. More medicine than that pleasant belgian funk. Barely choked this one down.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to pepsiedcan. Pours a sort of hazy copper color with a thin, nearly nonexistent white head of foam. Aroma is sweet and candied. Some corn comes through in the aroma, but not in the taste. Taste is sweet. Candy notes come through as well. Overall a very sweet beer with some interesting complexities.

Light in taste heavy in alcohol, smooth finish would be a better warm wether beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Love the stubby 12oz bottle that I poured into a smaller Corsendonk goblet glass. Extra point for the cool bottle. The beer is unfiltered with sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Thus, the pour provides a cloudy golden body, cannot see through it but still radiates. Small head does not stick around for long. Aroma is moderate banana and pear esters with some sweet candy and mild dough from the yeast. A bit sweeter than I want it but still within my range of acceptability. I think I get a little bit of pilsner malt in the aroma particularly. Flavor is lower on the sweetness and esters and a bit higher on the doughiness with a little bit of bitterness at the end to round it off. Nice medium body, very drinkable. Sweet aftertaste. Very nice beer especially for the price. On the sweeter side and I would like a bit more carbonation. Underrated on RB.

December 12, 2012 bottle at client holiday party. Light yellow pour with some head. Belgian yeast and malt in aroma and taste. Very mild but drinkable.

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours light cloudy amber with next to no head. Dusty yeast, light tropical fruitiness, medium pale malt, and light spicing. Taste is sticky sweet and fruity, with a bit of oniony dankness and a sharp, boozy, oaky finish. Slick and sticky body.

12oz bottle thanks to pepsiedcan, thanks Andy! Pours a hazy yellowish gold with a thin white head, aroma is of subtle fruit with a little bit of yeast and spice, the flavor has a nice earthy front end with some barnyard notes in the finish, kind of musty, the abv is tasted just a tad but is pretty well hidden, decent.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with nice white head. Hay, yeast, light citrus and clove aromas. Bready, yeasty, citrusy lemon, spicy, and slight alcohol flavors. Honestly, when I picked this beer up, I was thinking that it was a golden/blonde ale, so I was a little surprised when it came up as a belgian strong ale.6/4/6/4/13. Re-rated at randomgarbage’s wedding.
