Light haze on this reddish - amber beer. Tiny pale cream colour head. Palate is light with mild fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, cream and a little caramel. Nicely balanced hops - bruised orange, light pine and a little red berry fruits. Light finish, mild bitter linger. Very drinkable.

10/IX/14 - 12 Fl. Oz. bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ wedding anniversary tasting on a MF boat tour with captain Erwin - bottled (?): V/26/14 (2014-981)

Clear deep amber beer, small aery yellowish head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity, bit sugary, very malty, grains, bit soapy, some overripe fruits. No weed though. I think I should give these guys a "Avec Les Bons Voeux" from Dupont. Then they’ll know what a weed smell is. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet start, bit sugary, some overripe fruits, exotic fruits, caramel, sugary again. Aftertaste: sticky, sugary touch, soft bitterness, some bubble gum, bit weird, dry bitter ending with medicinal touches. Meh.

blankboy (6150) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a deep ruby-amber with an average size long-lasting frothy off-white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Nice aroma, catty, hempy and fruity hops galore. Flavour is really hoppy and quite pleasant, with a good amount of caramel malt in the background. Big bitter finish. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium bodied. I loved this.

Flaska på Monks American. Klart rödbrun med mkt lite skum. Ser mycket inbjudande ut dock. Tyvärr rätt klen i doften, men det som kommer fram känns helt rätt. Lätt av kåda, lätt av tropikerna. Bra jävla sötma som möts av en väldigt balanserad beska. Känns snäppet tunn i munnen kanske. Men mycket god! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
