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.

12 oz bottle. Fruity, spicy, subtly strong, and drinkable. A pleasant, Iowa-Belgian ale. Soft, wispy, bubbling head from the pour, and a cloudy and bright lemon in color. A peppery nose. Citrus and other Belgian, estery fruits. Crackers and a certain lemony grass as well. Sticky through out, the body is medium-thick with a prickly bite, but no booze. Herbal grasses up front, peppery grains, lots of estery fruits, crackers, and mellow citrus through the finish. This was just a step shy of coming together completely for me. Perhaps just slightly too much estery, yeasty fruit. Otherwise, well done.

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.

A bit too sweet for me, I much prefer dry blondes. In any case, it is a Belgian, so I suppose it is warranted. Rated accordingly.

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.

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.

This is a smooth and drinkable Belgian Blonde. It has a nice hazy golden color with a bright white head. Nice job, Peace Tree!
