deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy earthy gold wit ha white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy grains and grass with some light Belgian yeast backing. Flavor has lots of bread with some sweet grains and a light belgian yeast.

ronaldtheriot (1181) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Monk’s Ale has a thin, almost nonexistent, white head, a mostly clear, orange-gold appearance, with tight bubble streams and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, sweet fruits, sweet bread, and spice. Taste is the same, with low bitterness and no cloying aspects. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Monk’s Ale finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. A very smooth, Belgian-style ale. I give this a strong recommendation. RJT

A pretty well balanced beer with a tease of carmelly flavor. In terms of color, I loved it!

Flaska @ Churchkey, DC. Hälls upp dyigt brunorange med smutsvitt skum. Doftar melass, karamell och jäst. Smaker av karamell, banan, gräs och citrus. Svag beska.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle from Susan’s fine wines. Pours brown with a thin head. slight yeast note on the nose but it smells off somehow. Not a lot of flavor on the tongue. Finishes clean. terrible example of the style.

GIJOE (574) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Pours a hazy golden-orange with a mottled, foamy, white head that lasts a while. The nose is typical spiced Belgian spice and malt. Flavor is musty sweetness. Medium body. Decent brew.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Kind of orange-tan with a little haze, 1/2 finger head that left an off-white sheen and some decent lacing. Aroma is pretty yeasty, along with fruity, and with a touch of caramel malt. Flavor is very Belgian yeast forward, with a pretty good fruitiness, some clove, some pepper, and some non-distinct spices, The malt base provides a solid background for the other flavors, lending a nice caramel malt/bread/light toast note. Body is very full and rich, and leaves a malt base/caramel malt/Belgian yeast blend of aftertastes. It’s an interesting brew, and was certainly worth the price. I’d have it again.

cheap (3942) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Why didn’t I have this before, seems common. bready aroma. decent head from a bottle. darker yellow but not quite brown. my bottle says abbey brewing company. taste has a somewhat older lager appeal to it. is this in the same style as orval, heheheh? initially seems a little fruity but that old lager feeling keeps kreepin in.
