COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Monk’s is balanced like the best Belgian strong golden ales, yet has flavor and aroma hops that are as aromatic and intense as any imperial IPA. Double dry-hopped and fermented with our aromatic yeast strain, Monk’s has an intensely tropical hoppy nose and yet drinks easy and smooth without the intense bitterness that is normally associated with such a hoppy brew.

Cirrhosis (1200) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Crystal clear amberish honey brown with a rocky cap, looks off for the style. Smells weirdly neat. Way hoppier then I was expected, there is so much going on in the nose but I can’t name any of it. I like it, I like it alot. WHAT ARE THESE SMELLS?? Heavilly carbonated!! Same problem with taste......... so much going on but can’t name a thing. Hoppy it is, I guess Belgian yeast, peach, things and stuff. This completly reminds me of Laganetus SUCKS. Proper spelling is hard and is not important. I can drink the shit out of this beer. What the hell are the flavours??? I’m stuck on fuzzy peach, yeast, and awesome. I will buy more.

drpimento (2209) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Poured this with a decent off-white, foamy head and a little lace. Color is a slightly hazy, medium amber. Aroma is hop, malt, fruit. Flavor is like nose, hints of the gin. sweet is in front, followed by a hint of tang. body/carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, not that long and only a suggestion of the power. Decent stuff; I’d have more.

Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival. Rich and boozy Belgian with funky yeast overtones and a bright, fruity hop character. Long, lasting bitterness. A potent sipping beer and a fine North American spin on an Old World favourite.

Bottle. Ian @ Brouwers. Grassy, medicinal, ivory, gummy, white pine. Huge American hop flavor gushing out of a Belgian sweet malts. Sugary sweetness. Pear. Hinterland but higher quality.

cstuartj (963) - Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap. Pours a cloudy gold with a big thick head, laces well. Nose is very spicy, yeast, pepper, alcohol. Taste is good but not fully balanced, citrus notes are for front, pepper, spicy and Belgian yeast jump in during the finish. Light slightly sweet finish. Pretty dang good.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
(22oz bottle) Puchased at Hillside Liquors. Pours a small white foam that settles to the center of the glass atop a light orange. Orange rind, pine resin. Very yummy. Very citrus hops and biting finish. Incredibly enjoyable.

300monsters (16) - victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Poured from 650ml bottle, clear golden amber colour. Grapefruit and juicy, ripe peach on the nose. Mild grapefruit, ripe peach again and maybe a little orange peel to the taste, just enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Perfect mouthfeel. It’s like a hoppy E.S.B. but with Belgian yeast. Very interesting, incredibly tasty, a good place for the hop head and the belgian lover to meet in the middle and share a good beer.

maekchu (2043) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 18, 2013
Draught at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Big funky nose, manure-level yeast and hopping. Great flavor movement throughout: tart-bitter / grapefruit in mid & final / finishes mildly sweet with little tracks of alcohol. Very good.
