3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Phone rate. Draught @ el Bait Shop. Clear amber, small white head fading to a thin ring rather quickly. Aroma of banana and pale grain, fairly dry with some alcohol. Flavor has moderate fruity yeast with a bit of band aid notes, husky grain. Very well attenuated, finishes dry with a tinge of banana and grape notes, alcohol not masked too well. Bitterness peaked at a 1-2. Light to mod prickly carbonation with a medium body. OK.

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.

Sampled at the Schlafly ROP 2013. It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of lemons, some dry yeasts, and some ripe rotting fruit. The taste was of lemons, dry Belgian malts, not hot despite a higher ABV. Very good.

Draft. Clear orange-amber. Aroma is mostly bubblegum. Taste: sweet, bubblegum, light citrus, floral, very little bitterness, maybe a little butter. Palate: full body, slick texture. Overall: needs work.

Blonde Fatale comes off on the sweeter side, notes of citrus with a medium body. Summer would be the perfect time of year for this brew. Very enjoyable.

12oz Bottle, purchased at Warehouse Liquors - Duluth, MN. My first Iowa tick! Warm banana, spice, and cooked fruit aroma. Clean. Flavors are good. Light sweetness, good mineral profile, light clove and herb presence. Dry. A little on the rubbery side of the Belgian phenols for me, but this isn’t bad. Glad I got the chance to try it.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Pale orangish pour with no head. Nice aroma of sugars, yeast, and slight banana. Taste is a bit blander than that. Just so-so.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very clear light golden with a small white head that settles to a ring. Aroma of oranges and tangerine with Belgian yeast banana and some phenols. Taste is spicy with some fruitiness and slight alcohol flavor. Some breadiness in the finish and alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is crisp and light bodied with medium/high carbonation. Generic Belgian strong ale. Had on tap at Barleys Brewhaus.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle… Cloudy yellow ale with a small, fizzy, short-lived, white head. The nose presents heavy clove, peppery hops and a lightly smoky phenol. Medium-bodied with middling carbonation. The flavor is of pale grain and pear sweetness balanced nicely by spicy hop bitterness. Big clove phenol here as well. Finishes crisp, mildly sweet and lightly grainy. Bottle courtesy of pespsican!
