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 youíre not careful.

12oz stubby bottle bought at Hyvee liguors in Cedar Rapids. Poured a crystal clear yellow gold body with a very small foamy white head. (Recommend leaving the yeast in the bottle on this one. Did not find that it improved the taste or texture.) Aroma is very yeasty, lots of esters, ripe banana, slight white pepper, bready, and apricot. Thick body with chewy texture. Soft carbonation with a consistent uncomplicated taste and finish. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma, yeast, straw, bread crusts, lemon drop, slight bubble gum, some white pepper, and paper napkin. A very pleasant beer.

Smells like banana, a bit of bubblegum, and citrus fruits. Pours a deep amber, with almost no head. Taste is banana, with a biscuity finish. Very surprised with this beer, very easy to forget that its an 8.5% beer. Easily the best Iowa beer that I have had so far.

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.

Aroma is very nice for a blonde air. Smells a bit like a peach orchard sitting next to a flower auditorium where everything is watered with beer. :) A little reminiscent of some Belgian Trippels in the nose believe it or not. Tastes of bananas (likely from wheat) with a subtle but substantial for the style hops bite that fades into a sweat banana bread aftertaste. Agree with prior reviews that you can not taste the alcohol here. This tastes like a 4.5%. I would have had no clue it was an 8.5% if I hadnít read it here.

Pours a hazy gold color with a white head. Careful with this beer as it is 8.5% ABV but itís hidden very well.
