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 you’re not careful.

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2013
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.

4 oz. draft at Iowa TapRoom, Des Moines, IA. Maybe this keg sat awhile, flavors really married well. Smell of citrus, light spice. Taste is a moderate banana, black pepper, with a light vanilla in the finish. Alcohol is totally masked, smooth, easy to drink. Awesome yeast flavors. Medium in body. High drinkability for such a larger brew. Really liked it.

DandyWolfFloyd (1212) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Aroma - caramel, slight honey, slight alcohol, yeast has a slight banana. Coriander and spice. Appearance - the body is a blonde sunglow. Head is 2+" and white, and fades into a foam. Lacing is sporadic. Taste - is a slightly caramel, honeyed, and sweet malt. Belgian yeast with a fruity and slight banana flavor. Palate - medium body, smooth texture, soft carbonation, sweet finish.

Nuffield (4199) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Prominent banana nose with a more subtle flavor profile, suggestions of a good Belgian. Rich body, obviously benefiting from the abv, which offers a nice counterbalance in the effervescence and tingle. Interesting. (on tap at Newbo market, Cedar Rapids, IA)

3.3
Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Golden blonde with small white head. Aroma contains some apricots, booze, and lemons. Flavor is a bit sweet and boozy. Overall a pretty good triple.

Tap at zombie burger. Jazzy yellow orange nose is bubblegum and biscuits. Tastes of bubblegum, pineapple, cloves, yeasty. Fine palate. Alright but missing something I can’t figure
