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 color with a nice big tight head with larger than normal bubbles. The aroma is plenty of bread yeast with some nice banana fruitiness and a bit of spice. The flavor follows but the banana is more defined and the spiciness is less so. There is some nice lemon zest and a mild balancing bitterness with a nice enough alcohol character.

theisti (3451) - 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.

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.

Pours to a hazy glowing amber golden body with a crisp clean white head. The beer has a vibrancy that’s really nice. The aroma is pineapple, yeasty bananas, light cloves, with a light clean fruity hop aroma. The flavor is yeasty bready malts with a pineapple, cloves, and plantains. Almost like a citrus hop in there. The palate is medium bodied and pretty carbonated. Subtle alcohol warming. Pretty good velvety texture with a long sweet finish.

Bottle. Old vegetale dough, wet grass, bread. Not exactly my cup of tea. Imperial blonde ale spiked with budweiser.

12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee in Muscatine. Orange and slight hazy appearance with a small beige head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, clove, light fruity esters, pale malts, Belgian yeast and light hops. Similar flavor, mild to moderately sweet and lightly bitter with a lingering finish. Medium body, pretty easy to drink for the ABV. I enjoyed it slightly more on tap.

auerbrau (3182) - 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.

jandd1983 (3110) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2013
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.

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.

$3 bottle in mixed pack from the brewery, July 2011. This one poured a much more behaved head than the previous bottled Peace Trees. Just bubbles up and dwindles quickly, like a Belgian fizzy beer. Yellow with a golden center, bit of haze from the yeast from the bottle. Slightly sweet, but more malty in the nose. Taste is again a little sugary, but there’s some German hops there for an attempt at balance. Slightly yeasty aftertaste. A small note of horseblanket hop and yeast character.
