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.

Interesting amber beer...pours a dark copper color. Had an aroma of fruits, banana, and malt. Taste followed pretty closely, and had a nice spiciness to it. Nice smooth mouthfeel.

12 ounce bottle pours an amber copper color, aromas of some spicy belgium yeast, nuts, and light fruit. Flavor matches aroma profile, decent beer overall.

12 oz. bottle. Pours copper with a small, tan head. The aroma is apple juice, cherries, caramel, and cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet and malty, with a little spiciness. The palate is medium, chewy, and a little astringent. Overall, this is a nice amber ale, but nothing special.

This is a terrific brew. A friend turned me on to it down here in South Florida, Iím so glad that he did. It has great flavor, color, and texture. And itís great to see it being sold in more nearby locations to my house - including my local 7-Eleven. Awesome! It will always be offered in my home when guests come over!

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle/12oz - Pours a hazy darkish amber in color with a small white head that hug around to produce some minor lacing on the glass. Aroma is of fruity yeasts, sweet malts and nutty grains. Flavor is slightly sweet... the Belgian yeast is noticeable and welcome... adds some fruity esters. Nutty grains still come through. Lingering sweetness. Surprisingly good...

SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Pours brilliantly clear orange/gold with a small white head that falls quickly. Light malt aroma. The flavor is lightly sweet with just enough hop bitterness to balance. Pretty simple, uncomplicated beer. Good lawnmower beer.

cmc619 (386) - California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle into New Belgium stemware. Slightly hazy, deep amber, bordering on red hue. Thinnish head that doesnít want to stick around. Aroma of super-fruity Belgian funk, some penny, some 5-cent fruit-shaped candy. Palate feels slightly watery. Flavor lacks depth. In some ways reminiscent of oversweet homebrews Iíve had. Like an abbey dubbel lite.

Had the beer on draft and it seemed a little undercarbonated. Aroma had a hint of spice.
