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. Didnít finish. Messy.

I was into Belgian Trappist Ales back in the 1970ís when Chimay was $6.00 a bottle. Blonde Fatale commands the highest price among 6-pack standard brews by Peace Tree in itís home State. Itís 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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours light cloudy amber with next to no head. Dusty yeast, light tropical fruitiness, medium pale malt, and light spicing. Taste is sticky sweet and fruity, with a bit of oniony dankness and a sharp, boozy, oaky finish. Slick and sticky body.

Bottle. Old vegetale dough, wet grass, bread. Not exactly my cup of tea. Imperial blonde ale spiked with budweiser.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Johns. Bright gold with ring. Very sweet sugary aroma with herbs and glue. Very sweet fruit peach apricot with mildly astringent herbal bitter finish. Cloying sugary watery aftertaste. Fine carbo adds to astringency. Just sits there with no head or lace. Sugar added for "higher attenuation" should not make the beer sticky sweet and thick. This is off in every way. Blech.

This was terrible. I understand what they were trying to do with the Belgian yeast, but it was too much. The tasted infected. More medicine than that pleasant belgian funk. Barely choked this one down.
