Peace Tree Brewing Company's Blonde Fatale is a wonderful Belgian Blonde Ale and is being evaluated as 2015 BJCP Category 25A. The upfront aroma has light fermentation phenolics and pear-like esters. There is a light sweet malt behind with a low pleasant alcohol to tie it all together. On first sip, the lovely phenolics jump out upfront followed by light peppery notes and pear-like esters. A very low spicy hop flavor pops in the middle and lingers softly on the tongue. Pleasant soft alcohol ties everything together. I would highly recommend this as a great summertime beer, though it would be great all year long!
