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.

ExpendableHero (745) - Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Copper brew with an off white head. Aromas of faint sugars and caramel. Taste is of sweet malts, caramel, and some hints of Belgian candy sugars. Might even have some hefeweizen in it. Easy to drink, smooth mouth feel. Not bad for the style, but it did not really stand out.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper with small whitish head. The aroma is a little bit musty with some orange and earth notes. The flavor is caramel and a whole lot of plant matter. There is an ever so slight earthy bitterness to it. Weird... not sure I like it.

Dark copper, white head, small amount of lace. Slight maltiness with a little bitter on the end. A boring beer for a mostly boring style.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 27, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2012 Wheat, spices, abricot. Bit sour and more sweetness later on. Pretty nice. Fierce bubbles and okay aftertaste. Nice beer without being overwhelming. Rerated: Clean copper body and bubbly light beige head. Oatmeal, cookies, chestnuts and dry twigs. (On my Florida trip)

sebletitje (6602) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2010
Couleur qui approche le cuivre/ambre, col est blanc. Je note des esters, sucre brun léger, malt de caramel, qcq notes de levure belge avec un goût de pomme, banane. Fin au palais sans vraiment être une bière qui innove de trop.
