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.

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!

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.

On tap at Orlando Brewing. Pours a translucent golden amber with a creamy white lacing head. Aroma of butterscotch, caramel, something a little funky, Belgian yeast, tobacco and mixed citrus. Flavor of Belgian yeast, mixed citrus, spicy notes, Cheerios, some banana and lemon.

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Pours clear copper with creamy off white head. It has a very mild aroma hinting at lightly roasted malts and not much else. The flavor is much bolder than the aroma indicated. I get roasted malts, Belgian candi sugar and some caramel. I get some malt astringency that plays very nicely against the malty and candi sweetness and the dark fruity esters that follow which float notes of prunes and dates. Excellent medley of flavors that go well together.

Rustyham (1717) - 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.

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)
