Belgian Strong Pale Ale |  8.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/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.

2.65/5  rDev -24.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A-somewhat hazy maize colored with almost no head that fades quickly

S-fairly light smell of banana is about the best I can come up with nothing really pronounced it is just the faint banana and maybe a little bit of nuts

T-much like the smell nothing jumps out a little fruitiness that is a little reminisent of banana but not much else and then it leads to a slight metallic finish

M-not a real heavy body but slightly better than the light body that it looks like it is going to be

O- this is not a bad beer, just not in line for the style I don't think. For a regular BMC drinker this would be a excellent choice to get them to try something new.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Overall an extremely solid Belgian Blonde/Strong Pale.

Pours golden with just a faint whisp of carbonation. Fruity, bubblegum and banana, small hints of warming spice.

On the palate this is sweet, sticky candy sugar and cotton candy followed by a warming, earthy bitter finish.

If they carbonated this better, it would be more balanced and have a much more appropriate mouth, lifting and refreshing instead of sticky and full. If they dried it out, more, all the better.

A fine American take on the style, that I'd happily drink (particularly on tap) and cook with, but won't find myself craving a return to.

Was this beer worth adding an almost an hour to a daytrip whist having our toddler in tow? Absolutely! We stopped in the brewery after photographing tulips in Pella. We had a gift certificate to use as a result of a bad sixer that the company reimbursed us for.

The gold golor with a very slight haze and fluffy white foam filled the tulip glass nicely. The aroma was very floral with atouch of citris mixed in. The taste is like honey with citris, floral, and hops mixing to create an amazing flavor. The body has substance but doesn't feel like a brick wall hitting your pallete. It goes down well and makes me WANT to have more. I am giving this one 5 stars only after drinking it many times over the last 3 years and what I got from the brewery was the best yet. Yes, it IS that good.
