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.

seymour (1473) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2013
Tasted at the 2013 Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition fest in a mini Willybecher glass. It poured a mostly clear orange-tinged golden colour with moderate white foam and Belgian lace. Grainy, with strong pilsener impression, low-level earthy and pepper notes from hops and yeast. Slight residual sweetness. Nice, mellow, subtly balanced aromas and flavors. Light-medium body, average carbonation, bready mouthfeel, relatively dry finish. Deceptively smooth and drinkable for 8.5% alcohol, warming but otherwise well-concealed. I love the Styrian Goldings and Celeia hops in the description but I confess I wouldn’t have been able to identify them at such low dosages. Overall another tasty, well-crafted brew from Peace Tree.

pepsican (1451) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - SEP 3, 2010
hazy gold with a nice sized white head. Lots of dough and spicy bananas in the flavor and aroma. Some lemon citrus notes and a bit of lime and just a bit of grassy hops. Lively carbonation, just a touch of the ABV in the finish.

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2012
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.

GJF (1271) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle at Lincoln Wine Bar. Deep yellow, very thin white head. Citrus aroma with a bit of funk to it. Flavor is yeasty with some apple and clove, a spicy finish. Not much carbonation for the style. It’s got some good flavor to it, but a little rough around the edges--good beer, not great.

Prufrockstar (1139) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Draft. Clear orange-amber. Aroma is mostly bubblegum. Taste: sweet, bubblegum, light citrus, floral, very little bitterness, maybe a little butter. Palate: full body, slick texture. Overall: needs work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmohno (1135) - Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Gold slight haze depending how you pour it. Light head. Frothy sugary lace. Heavy ripe fruit aroma with citrus and spice,bready with light sweetness. Slight dry woodiness. Taste is similar to aroma with more spice/citrus in finish. Peppery. Light dryness.Little bit of bannana/clove but citrus overpowers that. Some grassyness. LIght sweetness.Not much alcohol presence at all. Pretty good. Not real big on the style but I like this one.

Light on flavor. I know this is a blonde, but come on, man! Give me something to work with.

JBPortland (924) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle pours hazy dark orange with a few bubbles but no real head, looks undercarbed...not off to a great start. Nose is huge banana bread and funky fruit, wheat. Taste is a banana bomb, some faint buttery fruity notes, cereal, yeast. Palate is near-flat and slick. Finish is a fruity yeast and banana bread. Didn’t finish. Messy.
