Monks’ Ale poured from bottle to glass. Aroma is of roasty, grass, earthy, and woody. Appearance is golden, with minimal head.Taste is medium bitterness, and salty. Palate light body, thin feel, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Great beer very light but full of flavor.

bhensonb (13508) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle from Marcus. Pours dark copper with a beige head. A stewed fruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is slightly spicy with banana ester. A rather minimal Belgian ale, but easily identifiable as a Belgian. Not exciting.

From a 12oz into a Delirium Noel stem glass. Pours amber-brown with head and lace. Big aroma of banana, lemon scones, amber malts. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, amber malts, banana, minerals, grass, clove. Overall rich aroma and flavor, strong yeast esters, yet light on malts and body.

12oz bottle 7/4/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-40° in Tumbler-Pours orange with a small off white head. Aroma of toffee, dark fruit, and malt. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but was expecting more.

Bif (1885) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2015
On tap. Served a dark copper color with fair head and nominal lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, bit of malt and caramel. Taste of dark fruit, bit of malt sweetness and brown sugar. Decent bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body and a bit sugary. Had hoped for something more robust.

thegreenrooster (3810) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is some dark bread and a bit of toffee. Flavor is kind of bready and dry with a sweet brown sugar toward the end. Not bad but not exciting either.

swillguzzler99 (185) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2015
From a 12 ounce bottle. pours copper with nice carbonation and slight head. Nose is of candied sugar and hops, almost soapy. Muted taste finishing slightly acrid with good mouth feel. This is a beer you would need pepcid with if you drank too many. Slightly disappointing for being labeled a Belgian ale.
