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.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with nice white head. Hay, yeast, light citrus and clove aromas. Bready, yeasty, citrusy lemon, spicy, and slight alcohol flavors. Honestly, when I picked this beer up, I was thinking that it was a golden/blonde ale, so I was a little surprised when it came up as a belgian strong ale.6/4/6/4/13. Re-rated at randomgarbage’s wedding.

12oz bottle thanks to pepsiedcan, thanks Andy! Pours a hazy yellowish gold with a thin white head, aroma is of subtle fruit with a little bit of yeast and spice, the flavor has a nice earthy front end with some barnyard notes in the finish, kind of musty, the abv is tasted just a tad but is pretty well hidden, decent.

12 oz bottle from Hy-Vee in Muscatine. Orange and slight hazy appearance with a small beige head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, clove, light fruity esters, pale malts, Belgian yeast and light hops. Similar flavor, mild to moderately sweet and lightly bitter with a lingering finish. Medium body, pretty easy to drink for the ABV. I enjoyed it slightly more on tap.

Golden blonde with small white head. Aroma contains some apricots, booze, and lemons. Flavor is a bit sweet and boozy. Overall a pretty good triple.

Prominent banana nose with a more subtle flavor profile, suggestions of a good Belgian. Rich body, obviously benefiting from the abv, which offers a nice counterbalance in the effervescence and tingle. Interesting. (on tap at Newbo market, Cedar Rapids, IA)
