COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer any Monk would be proud to call their own. Our award winning Belgian-style Golden Ale is high in alcohol with a flavor that is fruity and complex. A cult favorite here at Stewart's prompting the eternal question…Got Monk?

Clear golden/amber body with off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, candi sugar, orange, bubblegum. Taste is moderately sweet, candi sugar, orange, some alcohol and astringency. Moderately full body with low carbonation. Perhaps we had a bad batch, as Kathy was less than enamored with this as well.

BeerandBlues2 (9868) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Tap. Pours clear gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light/spare lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast esters, candi sugar, straw malt and no hops. Flavor is sweet malt, pear esters, candi sugar, no hops or bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
Had this a while back. Hazy gold pour with aroma of fruit, hops, candi sugar. Tastes authentically Belgian, with big fruit, spice, finishing hops, and candi sugar.

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2006
UPDATED: APR 10, 2006 Poured a golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, coriander, citrus fruits, yeast, light banana, and faint pepper. Taste of yeast, candy sugar, black pepper, spices, and some tart citrus in the background.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2009
BCTWC 09. Pours a hazy deep golden and a thin white head. Aroma of cardamon and phenolicy yeasty belgian spice- some fruity banana esters as well and hints of apple juice. More clove and cardamon flavor, doughy yeastiness and good fresh bready malts for the backbone- and a thinning sweet palate - candi sugar and more earthy dry spiciness in the end.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2009
On tap, at brewpub. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a one finger frothy white head. The nose is very spicy, both from the yeast and actual spices it seems. A little alcohol and bready malt. The flavor is just as spicy, with a lot of yeastiness and thick bready malt. Clove, banana, and candi sugar are all pretty prominent. A bit of an alcohol kick on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a bit of a stickiness on the finish. Moderate soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, OK, but not a big fan of this one.

TomDecapolis (4500) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Tap at BCTC 08, right next to our campsite. Thanks to the Stewarts crew for letting us have at their beer. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium creamy white head that left lacing. Aroma of tripel fermenation yeast esters, spicy/peppery, citrus, floral and bready. Flavor of the same. A well done tripel from an American based brewery.

ben4321 (4027) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Location: On tap at the Brew Pub, 8/12/09

Aroma: Big fruit nose, pretty complex, spice, sugar, banana, citrus, apple
Appearance: Clear orange-gold color
Flavor: Sweet and malty, nice fruity malts and spice, balanced and complex
Palate: Nice mouthfeel, mild alcohol burn, medium body
Overall Impression: I found this to be a really nice example of this style. Well made with quite a bit of interesting fruity complexity to it. This was a sure winner for me, really tasty. I wasn’t surprised at all when the bartender mentioned its popularity amongst the regulars, a very nice brew!
