Pours a clear pale golden color with a thin white head. The head settles out quickly leaving a thin ring of foam around the edges of the glass.
The aroma is a big blast of floral hops with a light sweet malt and hints of clove and banana.
The taste is surprisingly fruity. Pear, banana, apricot, peach, flavors blend with a sweet maltiness. There is some soft bitterness with mild floral and herbal hops notes. Some yeast and light spiciness and tartness.
Medium body with medium carbonation. Sticky sweet on the lips with a mild dryness on the finish.
Overall, a very impressive beer. The fresh fruit flavors blended with a light sweet malts and spices makes for a very enjoyable unique Belgium style beer. Fresh, crisp and worth a try! A great way to start your day!

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.
