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.

Bottle from Liz. Pours amber with a creamy white head. LIght spicy aroma, hint of nut. Med body; foamy carb. It first suggests a pils, then nut and spice pop in. Pretty drinkable beer. Balanced.

Tmoney99 (13609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Draft sample at brewhouse. Poured a clear copper color with a minimal fizzy white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Moderate toasted malty citrus aroma. Medium body with slick texture. Medium bittersweet flavor with a light to medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations for an organic brew.

A copper amber ale with a thick receeding white head. A nutty spiced malt aroma, with light milk chocolate notes. In mouth, a sweetish malt with light coriander, some powdery dryish character, light lactic points, and roasted malts. Not bad.

Aroma of grainy malt, caramel and mild hops. Light body with flavors of bready malt, caramel and lightly bitter hops. The finish is short and malty. Pretty average overall.
