This beer is made with pilsen malt, roasted malt, wheat malt, flaked oats and sugar. Brewed to a Belgian Tripel style, it uses also coriander seeds and curaçao. Ale yeasts and bottle refermentation complement the work to give to this beer an exceptional complexity of flavors. Bottled in a beautiful dark green "champagne" bottle, with natural cork, and unpasteurised, Monasterium has these main characteristics: Head: white, consistent and "creamy" Colour: Dark orange/Amber Taste/Smell: Plenty of esters, citric aroma remaining mandarine, apples, hints of banana. Some background spicy flavor due to the use of wheat malt and special yeast. Bitterness is well balanced to the body and flavors. Although is 9.0% alcohol by volume, its drinkability is remarkable. A singular beer, first of this style in Brazil.

Uma péssima surpresa. No início um leve amargor permeado por desagradável azedume acético, que permaneceu até o final aliado a leve acidez. No paladar um corpo médio-leve, de textura aguada, forte carbonatação e moderada adstringência no final. Infelizmente o azedume acético acima relatado prejudica todo o desempenho da cerveja, mesmo levando em conta a diminuição desta sensação após deixa-la repousando por alguns minutos.

Gosto muito desta cerveja mineira, muito bem feita, compatível com muitas das melhores Belgian Strong Ales internacionais. Álcool perceptível que inunda o palato de forma bastante agradável. Viva Minas Gerais !

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2012
750ml bottle at Delirium Rio. It pours golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is floral, gooseberry, white grape and a touch of citrus. The taste is white grape, gooseberry, floral, hay, straw and some spice, with a dry finish. Medium body and lively champagne-like carbonation. Tasty stuff.

danielyabu (1549) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 6, 2010
huge frothy white head. excellent lacing. mostly lasting. cloudy thick light amber body. aroma: moderate yeasty, lime. if and ff: light sweet acidic and bitter; average duration. palate: light body, watery texture, lively carbonation and light astringent finish. 70 skol espuma infinita, rolha abre praticamente sozinha após tirar o arame, pressão violenta que acarreta grande perda de liquido, gosto frutado, quase puxando pro azedo, toques pêra, não se percebe muito o álcool, foge do estilo, frutada demais. Baixo CB, 35 estaria de ótimo tamanho.

Fukito (1022) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle, september 08. Thanks scanovajr!!. Slightly hazy copper/amber color with a medium, bubbly head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy quite cidery with some honey and funk. Flavor is spicy, slightly fruity with an acidic/dry finish. Some phenols and slightly earthy too. Medium palate, effervescent, flavorfull. Dry finish and an acidic aftertaste. A littly too blurry. Nice, strong belgian that could be a little more refined.
