COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Santa Teresa Belgian Enkel is on tap now. The monks too enjoy a fine ale with a meal. This 5.2% abv ale uses noble hops and a yeast strain from the Trappist monestary, Westmalle.

At 4 am each morning steam billows from the Brouwerij der Trappisten van Westmalle, the trappist monastery in Westamlle Belgium. The brewery helps fund the abbey and other charitable causes. Monks have been brewing for centuries, and believe a fulfilled life requires your hands never be idles and always be providing. The monks enjoy enkels, or singles, with their dinner. A much lower ABV helps cognitive thoughts. These beers are extremely rare to find, even in Belgium, and we are very proud to represent this fine style.

Food pairing: chicken wings confit.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy gold with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is yeast, banana, clove. Medium mouth, similar flavors to nose, pepper, citrus, light dryness, good.

DMLINAZ (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Very smooth, tasty, well-put-together Belgian. Solid consistency. Nice yeast, estery, slightly floral. Easy to drink, but also very present. So good that I enjoyed two at the brewery, and several friends who drank it had high praise.

Decent Belgian with creamy finish. Light on the malt. Good lunch beer but probably not stand alone.

Slightly metallic aftertaste. Very smooth though, and a wonderful sourdough mouthfeel. Not as strong as a lot of Belgian style beers, but a good pair for many meals. Great golden shine.

Charming little table beer. Pale color with white head. Aroma is classic Belgian yeast with spices, bubble gum, fruity, and a maltiness that is a bit grainy. Taste has very mild tartness, with the fruit esters dominating and the grainy sweetness on the finish. Drinkable and nice.

Marheb (3291) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 2, 2015
(Bue en fût sur place); Mince, granuleux, minéral et avare sur la verdure. Un liquide sans grandes qualités mais qui ne fait rien de mal.

Ernesto987 (4760) - Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Draft at brewery, not too sure what 3/4 problem is, this is an enjoyable rustic single. Simple style with unique yeast flavors, interesting and kept me going back for more. I liked it. Dry finish, light straw color with moderate head. Sticky lacing. Dry finish

3fourths (8643) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Clear amber with a short white head. Starchy and husky pale malt, coarse and rough, grist-like grain huskiness, sour and adjunct-like. Honey-ish malt aroma is strongly papery and husky and lightly toasty. Quiet aroma hops show as apricot and orange. Medium-light body, absurdly rough and coarse in the mouth with seltzer water carbonation, finishing dry and sour and papery with the flavor of saccharine. Poor flavor and aroma expression, overly rough texture and unclean fermentation (autolyzed yeast).

Golden amber. Belgian yeast dominates, some banana and light spice. Clean and refreshing Belgian beee that doesn’t stray too far but really nicely done

Smell is mild yeast. Taste is yeasty awesomeness that actually captures the Belgian character pretty well! Very pleasantly surprised by this one. Medium carbonation with a decently full body and a hearty mouthfeel.
