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.

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.

douglas88 (6703) - 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.

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!
