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!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy golden straw with no discernible head at all. Hay, apples, yeast and some hops in the nose. Taste is much sweeter than I expected, they said this beer was going to be well attenuated but they lied to me. Carbonation is low, as is the bitterness. Is this suppose to be a Duvel clone? If so, it isn’t working. At all. Except for the alcohol content. That is noticeable and equivalent to Duvel. Where’s the goddamn foamy head? Where’s the carbonation? I will finish this beer, but only because it was a trade extra from pepsiedcan, and i need to catch a buzz. Scroll past this beer if you ever see it in a store.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours hazy dark orange with a few bubbles but no real head, looks undercarbed...not off to a great start. Nose is huge banana bread and funky fruit, wheat. Taste is a banana bomb, some faint buttery fruity notes, cereal, yeast. Palate is near-flat and slick. Finish is a fruity yeast and banana bread. Didn’t finish. Messy.

I was into Belgian Trappist Ales back in the 1970’s when Chimay was $6.00 a bottle. Blonde Fatale commands the highest price among 6-pack standard brews by Peace Tree in it’s home State. It’s a barely tolerable Belgian Ale worthy for dumping two bottles in a Bubba Keg over ice for mowing the lawn. Beyond that, forget the brand.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy hay yellow with thin frothy white head that quickly fizzles to a faint lacing. Aroma is earthy, hay, brown sugar and a hint of banana/coriander. Medium sweetness - definitely sweet but not syrupy sweet. Body is not heavy - the carbonation is active enough where it hits your tongue and scrubs the sugar away but it is all very quick and finishes feeling a bit heavy down the throat and the carbonation has gone already. Overall nothing exceptional but drinkable but for the alcohol content i would expect something more exciting.
