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.

jcr (2112) - 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.

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - FEB 11, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 12 oz stubby bottle left behind at my New Years party by a neighbor. The pour is mostly clear golden yellow, with a one inch white head that falls with no lacing. The aroma is straw, malt sweetness, and an herbal yeast Tripel nose. The taste is the herbal straw, round full sweet malt, more of the herbal, and light banana clove yeast. The palate is medium to light bodied, fairly low carbonation with the yeast notes lingering in the aftertaste. Alcohol is decently masked.

Sweat, banana, wheat. A bear that tastes like summertime at a single A ballpark, like grass stuck in your mower.

fidelis83 (1823) - 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.

Bottle from Casey on the Black Country tour. Cheers my friend. Great to see you and Traci for the first time in 3 years. Hope you’ll come back soon It’s an aromatic authentic Belgian blond ale. If you hadn’t told me it wasn’t Belgian I’d struggle to tell you, perhaps a bit too clean and a bit too hoppy to be pure Belgian. Bit of perfume on aroma. Decent beer.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle provided by Ed Roberts. Not a whole lot going on in this beer. Has a sweet aroma with subtle hints of candy sugar and wheat. It was a very nice contrast though to all the big stouts we were consuming.
