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.

Aroma: a little bit of pine hidden behind a more pronouced fruit juice, somewhat sugary aroma (the sugary notes clearly due to the characteristic Belgian yeast); Appearance: light yellow to golden, pronounced lace, not as cloudy as I would have expected for being an unfiltered ale, Taste: superior, definately the best aspect of this ale, very easy to pick up the apricot, some banana, the fruity flavors mix very, very well with the hoppy flavors, really tasty; Palate: the yeasty background smooths things out in an awesome way, you’re not left with the hops piledriving your tastebuds, Overall: very good beer, I wish I had another, I enjoyed it with Waldorf chicken salad, and I suggest you pair it up with something slightly fruity too

Bottled. Deep gold colored body with only a trace of a thin white head. The nose has a little funk and leather. There is also some apple. Hints of clove show up as a nice spice. This tastes a little leathery with some notes of orange peels. The finish is fairly spicy with clove. There is only a hint of salt in the finish. Overall, this is fairly dry and straight forward. Decent.

Aroma is very similar to a witbier with cloves heavily in the mix. The appearance is yellow-gold and relatively clear. The flavor is vanilla, lemons and noticeable carbonation. Overall its a good ale, sort of a mix of several different styles of Belgian Ales.

$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.

Shared with kristen, james and veronica. Clear golden pour. Kristen also REALLY liked this beer. Belgian candi sugar and lightly yeasty. A little alcohol on the nose. Not burning. Thought this was Blonde Fat Ale. Pretty good.

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.

vyvvy (4469) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Sampled at Repeal of Prohibition fest 2013 at Schlafly Bottleworks - Pours golden blonde with a light haze and white head. The aroma has bananas, clove, raw dough and fruity Belgian yeast. It has medium / full body with light carbonation. The flavor starts sweet and sugary with nectar fruits, spice and mild banana. The finish has mild spicy hops. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light pale and grainy malts, fruity/peachy sweetness, and light spicy yeast. Not bad.

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