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.

5/2/11. 12oz bottle courtesy ekoerper. Hazy orange pour with a big off-white head that fades fast and doesn’t last. Dry, yeasty aroma with a hint of alcohol. Better on the flavor with esters, bread, yeast, and more. Not bad!

douglas88 (6018) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Stubby little 12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is lemons, some dry yeasts, and something akin to overripe rotting fruit. A smooth flavor of lemons, dry Belgian malts, not hot despite a higher ABV. Decent. A nice effort.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Bottled. Deep gold colored body with only a trace of a thin white head. The nose has a little funk and leather. There is also some apple. Hints of clove show up as a nice spice. This tastes a little leathery with some notes of orange peels. The finish is fairly spicy with clove. There is only a hint of salt in the finish. Overall, this is fairly dry and straight forward. Decent.

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.

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.
