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.

Pours a hazy golden straw with no discernible head at all. Hay, apples, yeast and some hops in the nose. Taste is much sweeter than I expected, they said this beer was going to be well attenuated but they lied to me. Carbonation is low, as is the bitterness. Is this suppose to be a Duvel clone? If so, it isn’t working. At all. Except for the alcohol content. That is noticeable and equivalent to Duvel. Where’s the goddamn foamy head? Where’s the carbonation? I will finish this beer, but only because it was a trade extra from pepsiedcan, and i need to catch a buzz. Scroll past this beer if you ever see it in a store.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma of lemon, biscuit, slight pear and grape, touch of earth note in there as well. Taste is a nice biscuit, caramel, slight lemon with rich yeast, touch of earth and more bready notes, finishing fairly sweet but slightly dry. Pretty nice.

A bit too sweet for me, I much prefer dry blondes. In any case, it is a Belgian, so I suppose it is warranted. Rated accordingly.

jstraw (1938) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Orange-gold with scant, white head / Fat, clean nose of malo, citrus, and resin / Medium to full body, malty and fruit but very clean, body stands up well to big alcohol, with good balance and dry finish / Big, clean, elegant flavors of fermented orange, pineapple, mango, honey, and resin / Very nice in this big, steely, style.

Shared with kristen, james and veronica. Clear golden pour. Kristen also REALLY liked this beer. Belgian candi sugar and lightly yeasty. A little alcohol on the nose. Not burning. Thought this was Blonde Fat Ale. Pretty good.
