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.

Opens up like a canadian pilsner at first. Then the aroma of spices and fruit expand out of the mouth of the bottle. There is no foam head at all and the color is ner brown. The taste is sweet with no lingering effects of spice. You can almost taste a slight dash of cinnamon near the end.

Malaclemys (421) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle pours amber with white thin head. Aroma of heavy Belgian yeast fruity, funky, with malty toasted notes. Taste is slightly sweet malt caramel hints. Spicy floral and a tad bit of funk you’d expect from a Belgian. Light body good carb. Alot going on with the malt hidnimg some of the yeast flavor. Not bad but not great.

Not impressed. Weird malty taste mixed with a light Belgium test make it a definite pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grain with light sweet fruits and a bit of backing nuttiness. Flavor begins has light fruits and sweet grains up front with a note of nuttiness coming out in the finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5220) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-caramel color with a medium sized foamy off white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish with a sour caramel presence and touches of dark fruits and vegetal malts. The flavor was tangy and sour with faint caramel, dark fruits, vegetal malts and canned mushroom juice. Long sour caramel and vegetal finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

malty aroma, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Hoppy and malty flavor character, but more malty. Sweet bread like in the finish with a pleasant bitterness. Very enjoyable beer from my home state.

Pint at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, FL. A nice smooth half inch layer of beige foam over a hazed coppery beer. This had some nice banana bread flavors. Bready yeast, nuts, and those spices. Rich malts made this a sweet beer and one that was very easy to drink. I liked it.
