3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

This is a smooth and drinkable Belgian Blonde. It has a nice hazy golden color with a bright white head. Nice job, Peace Tree!

Bottle. Pours clear golden with a nice white head. Nose is malt and Tripel. Taste is more Tripel with some malt and banana. Hides the alcohol well.

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.

Stubby bottle poured a hazy gold with a small lasting creamy white head. Aromas of straw, yeast, clove, melon and pear. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, fruitiness, honey and light spice with a crisp dry lingering fruity honey finish.

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.

2.6 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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Lyon’s Pub in downtown Mpls. Absolutely no head which is mainly attributed to the bartender not the beer itself. Dark golden color with good carbonation present. Aroma is odd....maybe yeast? Taste is surprisingly solid. Represents the Belgian strong ale well considering it’s about as far from Belgium as possible. Alcohol is present. Some malty sweet. No real bitter or floral hops at all. While it’s not the best beer out there, if you’re in Iowa (or Mpls) probably worth a try.

Tap in tulip at Lyon’s pub. Hazy dark gold. Little head on my pour. Sweet smell, almost honey like. Slightly syrupy, but has elements of Belgian ales. Yeast and slight citrus, finished with syrupy alcohol. Decent attempt.
