COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Volume 5: This new age beer style is a fusion of two great brewing traditions that are worlds apart - a hoppy American Double IPA and a classic Belgian Tripel. Beware the Gnome in the funny green hat!

Combination of two of my favorite styles and a very interesting take it is. A one finger head and a light amber color are followed by a smooth and hoppy finish. More to come.

Clear darkish golden with a thin laceful white head. Nose is sweet and quasi earthy with a semi-fruity/semi-bubblegumy Belgo yeast tone. Taste is sweet with some earthy pale toffee notes, tangerine-esque yeast esters, dough, and a soft sweet pale ending. Not shabby, but forgettable.

Labelled as Monks Revenge. Aroma us apricot, orange, yeast, mold. Look is cloudy yellow-orange. Small head, but creamy looking....lasting. a touch of vinegar. Some Wang, but the sweet fruitiness and creamyness keep it pleasant. Medium carbonation. A nice Belgian.

Monks revenge is a great combo beer. Combining Belgian and IPA good appearance and aroma with layers of flavor.

JHeath99 (1236) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours hazy amber with slight off white head. Aroma of slight hops and yeast/bread. Taste of initial bitterness that quickly gives way to yeast. Different/interesting.

Maltser85 (323) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours a beautiful copper orange color. Aroma is citrus pine, pineapple, pepper, Belgian yeast, some malty sweetness. Taste falls short. Malt notes fight with the Belgian notes which for with the hop bitterness. Notes from the nose are there on all fronts, but too disjointed to truly enjoy. Well crafted though, alcohol stays hidden/blends in.

deaconmike (410) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Poured from a bottle into my Monday Night Brewing snifter. Really nice looking beer - dark amber with a pillowy off-white head - it disipates to a thin cap and leaves minimal spotchy lacing. Aroma is malt, belgian yeast, grass, dried fruit and spice. Taste starts sweet and a little bitey and then a peppery/clove spice takes over and lingers on the palate. Dried fruit, malt, pine dominate the flavors. Overall, its a decent beer - to me it seemed like I was tasting two separate beers, this one didn’t blend seemlessly for me.

S_Side_Smitty (530) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pours amber-orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity Belgian yeast. Taste is mild fruit up front (almost grape like) going to a typical Belgian yeast mid palate and a long bitter finish. Definitely different and definitely blasphemous.

UDBeernut (1915) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2013
2013 bottle pours amber with a cream colored foam cap that leaves behind a gentle lacing coat. nose of flowers, bubblegum, earth. taste begins with quick toast ans sweetness quickly washed over by citrus with bitterness flashing in on an abrupt finish. cloves hang on the palate long after finish. body is light to medium.

9/3/2012. From bottle. Aromas of citrus, pine, caramel, hops and yeast. Interesting combination of two different styles, but somehow it works pretty good.
