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.

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

Draft at Shorts Burger & Shine. Poured a hazy yellow-light orange color with a white head. Very fragrant. I smelled it from across the table without bringing up to my nose. Lots of banana, cereal grain, and a squeeze of lemon. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet with a bit of citrus-type acidity. Moderate carbonation. The flavor profile followed the aroma; banana, lemon zest, and mixed cereal grains.

On tap at peace tree. Cloudy flaxen color. Nice initial large head with great retention. Initial sulphorous yeasty aroma that gives way to a very blegian lemony scent. Palate is slightly fizzy. The hops provide a nice medium citrus bitterness throughout. Key lime finish. Quite good.

Aroma is largely Belgian yeast phenolics, lemon, bread, and sweet malts. Pours a muddy golden color with a 1/2" white head, below average retention and just a touch of lacing. Very fruity flavor, banana and lemon are most apparent, some pepper and clove, good dose of bready malt character. Medium body, more than the appearance would suggest, some residual sweetness. A bit heavy on the palate, but otherwise a nice blond ale.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy orange/gold with a smallish light biege head. Aroma of citrus, spice and yeast. Taste is malt, lemon, spices and a touch of hops. Some alcohol taste. Nice.

hophouse (5) - - SEP 5, 2011 does not count
Had a 12 oz. bottle. A solid mix between a belgian and a blonde. I expected more off, fruity flavors being they used a belgian yeast and was a bit disappointed. But still a nice easy to drink, tasty beer with hints of caramel and butterscotch.

Bottle shared by oRos. Pours clear blonde with a modest off-white head and a fruit and yeast aroma. There is a slightly sour light malt flavor with a banana finish.

Pours hazy gold with white head, lots of yeast. Aroma is spicy yeast. Medium body, lots of sweet yeast flavor with a little spiciness, little bit of banana, and some citrus hops. Some alcohol taste also. Lots of grainy barley taste on the malt side. Nothing spectacular but it does a really good job of hiding the higher ABV, very drinkable and pretty good.

Tap in tulip at Lyon’s pub. Hazy dark gold. Little head on my pour. Sweet smell, almost honey like. Slightly syrupy, but has elements of Belgian ales. Yeast and slight citrus, finished with syrupy alcohol. Decent attempt.

Tap at Lyon’s Pub in downtown Mpls. Absolutely no head which is mainly attributed to the bartender not the beer itself. Dark golden color with good carbonation present. Aroma is odd....maybe yeast? Taste is surprisingly solid. Represents the Belgian strong ale well considering it’s about as far from Belgium as possible. Alcohol is present. Some malty sweet. No real bitter or floral hops at all. While it’s not the best beer out there, if you’re in Iowa (or Mpls) probably worth a try.
