COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed for Inlet Brewing Co. (ex Jupiter Brewing Co.) by Orlando Brewing Co., now by Thomas Creek.

This unique copper-colored ale derives its fruity, slightly spicy aroma from authentic Belgian Abbey yeast. The subtle nutty and malty sweet flavors sing in harmony with the freshest organic hops vailable. Monk In the Trunk devotees are known to chant about its most intriguing quality, true drinkability.

12 oz bottle from Pantani. Nose of sweet caramel with a hint of bubblegum. Clear light amber with a medium, lightly lacing, beige head. Flavor is peppery with caramel and a touch of spiciness. This would be a decent session ale.

Clear transparent amber bronze pour has a smallish white coating of head. Has a semisweet caramel malty nose with a touch of graininess and earthy hops. Starts with average fullness and some light toasty caramel and biscuity maltiness with a touch of semi-tart fruits before a drier toasted grainy finish. Pretty drinkable, but could use a fuller flavor.

The aroma and mouthfeel seemed very muted as if it was watered down. The finish was alos very muted but did show some notes of the hops. I will try again as it seems that it should be better.

BBB63 (5741) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle served in Duval snifter: Clean amber hue with a fading frothy head and minimal lacing. The aroma has notes of crystal caramelized and biscuity malts, herbal and earthy esters, slight apricot and peach, beernuts, and some butterscotch. The taste is pretty much a hybrid of your paint by numbers Amber Ale and a mild Belgian Ale. Sweet and fruity with some diacetyl notes. Herbal, nutty and slightly spicy finish does help with some semblance of balance. The mouth feel is just there, a tad thin and chalky with a hint of metallic notes. It is what it is, just your average brew.

pours a clear brown with small head. aroma is nutty with a hint of spiciness. mouthful has a nice nuttiness to it then finishes with Belgian spice. Belgian yeast seems out of place in sunny FLA, but nice brew none the less.

Iíve never really tried organic beers in my comings and goings of beer stores but this one is pretty damn good. Has a light brown gold color when poured. Definitly has a light spice note to it with a little bit of fruit in there as well.

Rustyham (1711) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Spicy like a Unibroue product. Lots of Nutmeg and cinnamon, maybe cloves. This should be a Christmas Ale. Itís fantastic as long as it stays cold (like most heavily spiced beers) but with warm food, outdoors in Miamiís 98 degree weather, it gets nasty quick. On Tap at Yard House, Coral Gables.

A nice abbey style amber ale. On draft at a quaint Irish bar in Jupiter, FL. Good flavor and balance--not too strong. Color was light amber.

Sampled at Whole foods, Boca Raton. light amber color, almond colored head. Aroma of fresh malted barley and some grassy hop notes. Flavor is of sweet vegatables an a spicy hop finish. Very balanced, some what compaiable to Sam Adams Boston Lager.

on tap at brewpub -- poured to shaker pint despite a rack of chalices. aroma of yeast and fruit, slight funk. body is thin. appearnce is dark amber. some maple syrup in nose. very low carbonation, thin mouthfeel. aroma does not translate to flavor very well. ABV is too low and it shows, this is a frail beer with big dreams.
