2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught sample at the brewpub, July 26th. This was billed as just "Monk" on my visit, and I suppose itís possible that itís a different beer. But my guess is that it just varies a bit from batch to batch - and name to name - not enough to warrant a new listing. At any rate, what I had poured a moderate to dark gold, rather hazy/oily, with virtually no head...nose is fairly alcohol and sweet, a bit of that candy sugar perhaps, little of that yeasty Belgian character Iíd expect...and the same is true in the body, which is very sweet, syrupy, and fairly harsh; boozy and cloying, with an off vegetal finish. Pretty terrible, but thankfully the worst sample we had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub in downtown Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that nearly dissipates clean with no ring or lacing. Aroma of candi sugar, some apple, a hint of banana esters, and some wintergreen. Taste is full bodied, quite sweet with flavors of candi sugar, a hint of wintergreen, banana and some alcohol presence. Finish is still quite fruity sweet, syrupy with a lingering aftertaste of candi sugar, banana and yeast.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazed straw color with a small lid of white bubbles. Big estery aromas. Lots of over-ripe light fruit with hints apples and bananas. Some lightly earthy honey and malt also in the nose. Light fruit flavors as well. Some honey, pale malt, and floral flavors as well. Some decent flavors. A touch of alcohol. Thick, smooth feel, with just a little zip. While the aromas are a bit unbecoming, the flavors make up for it. Finish and lightly dry with a bit of floral flavors. A sipper for a cool day.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub, pours cloudy, and smells like feet. Guess thatís not a stretch given the name. The taste is interesting, itís sweet then quickly sour, fruity, candi sugared, it gets sweeter as it warms too. Talking to one of the brewers, he said it was just brewed, so it was a young beer, he said try it again in a week or two. I will the next time Iím in town. Itís ok.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Gold/orange in color with a medium head.yeasty aroma and a nice creamy palate.Tastes like a good weiss beer with a fruty finish Iím very happy that it tastes more like a weiss than anything Belgian. Also over 10% Alc but no alc flavor to take away from the rest of the beer! This is one great beer and me and my growler are within walking distance. Now if youíll excuse me...

On tap at grumpy troll. Pours out a deep orangish yellow with little head. Some additional filtration would have helped. Aroma is actually quite good. Banana, clove, pear, and light cherry make an appearance.
