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.

Beerathon (1278) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2012
I had been pleased with all Uinta brews I had until this one. Had a strange tinge to it that I didn’t care for. Not horrible, but not good.

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Slightly hazy, orange. Light aromas of clove, crisp apple, bananas, and slightly peppery. Banana and clove flavors with light spice and a hint of noble hop and accompanying bitterness. Light and dry. The bittering hops are in a weird power struggle with the spice and cloves. Flavors don’t marry together all that well, but drinkability isn’t sacrificed.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 19, 2012
12oz bottle: pours a clear bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with nice malty sweetness and doughy yeast with a touch of clove before a slightly drier and smooth finish. True to style and enjoyable.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Poured a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is banana, clove, bubblegum, herbs, caramel, dough, and cereal. Taste is banana, clove, bitter, and lemon. I really wish the taste were as complex as the smell.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Yeasty, grassy, sugar and ester filled citrus aroma. Nice looking clear orange. Sweet biscotti taste. Teases sourness but never really goes that way. Sweet and salted effect of Belgian yeast in a lighter beer. Lightweight body which packs enough bite to keep it out of the session range. On the other hand, you’d be hard pressed to find near 7% alcohol in this thing.

knewell (73) - 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 (3791) - 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 (2283) - 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.
