Peace Tree Blonde Fatale

The Peace Tree Brewing Company is in Knoxville, Iowa. They do a lot of really good and interesting beers and they always have a good time at beer fests. This is their 8.5% Belgian-style blonde ale that won a gold medal at this year's World Beer Cup.

The beer pours a deep and dark honey golden in color, with tints of burnt orange. There is a short lived head of fizzy white foam. The aroma is yeasty, bright, brassy, tangy, but also sweet, with lots of banana esters, like sweet banana bread made with citrus zest. The taste follows the aromas directly, loads of banana, citrusy, sweet, but not cloying. It is full-bodied and smooth, with a very light carbonation. Excellent.
