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 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.

jcr (2210) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle. Hazy golden body. Frothy, white head, quickly diminishing. Aroma is mostly clove with notes of mustiness, lemon, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A bit hot in the finish with peppery alcohol notes. Tastes of clove and lemon. Thin and simple for as big a beer as it is.

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.

fidelis83 (1955) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin, white head. Aroma of cereal, bready yeast, grassy hops, toast, spicy hops, and earthy fruit. Flavor is very bready, grassy hops, toast biscuit, banana, apple chips, hay and light mineral notes to the finish. Medium body, slightly oily feel, light, but sharp carbonation. Not bad.

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.

malrubius (1726) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle from Johns. Bright gold with ring. Very sweet sugary aroma with herbs and glue. Very sweet fruit peach apricot with mildly astringent herbal bitter finish. Cloying sugary watery aftertaste. Fine carbo adds to astringency. Just sits there with no head or lace. Sugar added for "higher attenuation" should not make the beer sticky sweet and thick. This is off in every way. Blech.
