was recently in florida and went to the office in delray beach where they had monk on draft - omg it was terrible! the bartender highly suggested this amber and said it was a local florida brew but in reality it was created in florida but actually contract brewed in south carolina - the brew itself wasnt balanced well - the nose had a light malty aroma , the body was extremely light & the taste itself was very bland & just didnt finish well - first and last taste was all diacetyl - dont waste your money

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Copper colored beer with a fading head and no carbonation make a flat looking beer. The aroma has a sour banana and lemon smell with a slight honey smell. Lacking a pronounced hops note but a trained nose can catch some. The beer has a sour taste to match the smell. Salt was the main taste characteristic. The organic method behind the beer leaves out the desired taste. There was not much else to remember about this beer besides the kitchy name.

I really like Belgian beers, but I’ll make an exception for this one. Nothing worth bragging about. Not a lot of taste, kind of a wuss of a beer. Little on the nose, little to distinguish itself on the palate. Lots of good Belgian-style beers in the world - don’t waste your time on this one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Perfumy, musk-vinegar-woody Belgian aroma with clear candy tones. Clear, amber-brown, bad label. This tastes a lot better than it smells -- woody, Belgian amber flavor, medium-light hopping. Silky mouthfeel, medium-heavy boddy. Light, woody, moldy-herbal aftertaste. There are funky off/sulphuric flavors and aromas at various points. There are things that should probably not be attempted in the Florida heat and humidity. New Leaf Market.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a nice amber with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Aroma of grain and grass initially, followed by malt, yeast, and hints of spice as it warmed. The flavor found toasted malts and spice. Light to medium body with a light toasted malt aftertaste. Nice session ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Crisp amber coloured body with a copper glow and a thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of light malt, a touch of fruit and a little bit of nuts. Light-bodied; A malty flavour at first with some sweetness from raisins and fruits soon afterwards with a very crisp and nutty finish. Aftertaste shows some sweetness, caramel, fruits and a little malty alcohol finish. Overall, a pretty simple and mild beer - no strong flavours one way or another. Drinkable for sure, but not very enjoyable. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in St. Petersburg, Florida on 13-November-2010 sampled in New Paltz, New York on 19-February-2011.
