COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
European tradition meets western modernity with Monkshine, an approachable adaptation of the classic style brewed in Belgian monasteries. Rejoice, fellow admirers of Belgian ales, for there is Four+ Monkshine.

I liked this because I’m not a big fan of the Belgian beers. It’s palate was weak but still had the underlying Belgian character. Easy to drink and a nice mild flavor. If you like strong Belgian ales skip this one.

Clear and bubbly like champagne. Taste resembles a slightly bitter wine. Tastes almost like a a cider.

Aroma is yeasty with hints of clove and banana. Pours hazy golden color with a decent head, but it fades quickly. Taste is malty with earthy undertones and also clove and banana flavors with a crisp, dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

20130127 12 oz bottle from Wine World in Abingdon. I found this to be a pretty typical US micro attempt at a typical medium strength Belgian golden. Decent amount of yeast presence and some earthy hops. Not too sweet, plenty lacy on my glass, and overall a bit plain but refreshing. Ad some hops and it’s a saison. Seems like a by-the-book homebrew, but nothing special and maybe a bit heavy on the carbonation.

12oz bottle. Pours a very light golden with a thin white head an medium lacing. This is a bit of a miss. It’s not bad but it ain’t exactly good either. I get the Belgian yeast aroma but very little of the nice flavors that usually go with it. A slight hint of pepper but otherwise pretty tasteless and boring. Not one of Uinta’s better efforts.
