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.

knewell (71) - Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Pours a golden color, leaves a nice head and has a mild fruity aroma. Taste is clean and crisp with a little sweetness. Smooth on the palate with a very slight carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable beer from start to finish.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark golden with a small head. Some sweetness in the nose with a slightly metallic smell to it. A lot of sweetness coming from that yeast used in Belgians. Not a great one.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle. Honey, butter, grapes (wine) in the nose. Cloudy straw color with thin head. Initial is very sweet. Mid palate jumps up with some nasty, harsh fruit (apricots?) and then bitterness. Final is mildly sweet. Medium-thin body. Maybe hopped up too highly for the style. Okay.

laiti (5427) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2012
35,5 cl bottle (5,8%) @ Ferry Plaza Wine Bar, San Francisco. Bottled on 21.03.2012 Rated on 20.07.2012
Aroma is light with some citrus, fruits and floral notes. Flavour is somewhat spicy with some orange and hints of citrus. Grassy Belgian hops in the finish. Quite straightforward, your typical Belgian blonde.

ccex (903) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2012
12 oz bottle purs a clear golden color with a fair white head and some lacing. Smells of yeast ane wheat. Aroma is the same, without too many surprises and some light floral hops. Has a light to medijm body with average carbonation. Taste is neither biyyer nor sweet, but the short finish is clean. OK, but I probably won’t revisit this unless it is half price,

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Aroma of floral and yeast. Pours gold with a medium head. Taste is kind of bland with a yeasty mouth and a wet-dog aftertaste. Not that great.
