Has a cloudy golden color. Smell is alive with citrus and spice. Taste is mild compared to the aroma, light spice and citrus. Overall a pretty good beer.

Light gold and hazy. Good head. Aroma is a bit earthy. Flavor is earthy and perhaps even a bit smokey of all things. Leans towards the bottom of my list of Belgian Wits.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of coriander and clove, citrus, bubblegum, and something strange that I can’t put my finger on. The taste is all wheat, yeast and something chemical that I’m not at all fond of. Medium-thin bodied, average carbonation, slightly astringent. Smells ok, but that’s about it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Bottle] Pours a very light shade of yellow without much head to it. Sweet light malty nose is very faint. Not getting much of a Wit character from it in the aroma. The taste is grainy and includes a bit of lemon mixed with pale lager notes. Green apple and slight oxidation is evident as this warms up. Very light. I would avoid this in the future.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ home. Slightly hazy, whitish yellow appearance with a fairly small white head. Lemon citrusy, coriander spicy, slightly yeasty, light wheat malty aroma. Fairly sweet, predominantly orange citrusy, weird spicy, slightly skinked wheat malty flavor. Not very good.

Bottle from plaza liquors. nose smells like cheese that’s a bit off. Pours hazy yellow with no head to speak of. Tastes like watered down lemon blend. If you’re going to call the damn thing after monk’s, it should taste really, really good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear bright golden with a dense cap of white head. The aroma picked up sticky-sweet honey and bready sweetness topped by a thick dose of spices (cloves, orange zest, and coriander above all else).. more orange was nice right on the back. The flavor found light honey and some pale malts at the core.. a similar blend of sweetened-up spices around.. some green apple on the finish.. OK overall. Light-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. too sugary and heavy-handed for the style, but it was drinkable.
