3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Uinta Brewing giftshop in SLC. Unusual cooked corn aroma that reminds me of fresh corn tortillas from Mexico that arenít as fresh anymore. Beautiful crystal clear golden color with a foamy white head. The cooked corn is much less in the taste but still there. Nice Belgian spiciness. A little bit of funk and a nice dry hay taste reminiscent of a Saison. Finishes slightly sweet and dry with a lasting Belgian yeast taste. I liked this more and more as I drank it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber with a light head; lots of spiced banana in the aroma, some clove, orange and yeast; biscuity and malty with a dry finish; some metallic hops; a little grainy and pretty thin. This actually has quite a bit of flavor, though not alot of complexity, for being so thin (palate) and weak (alcohol); Belgian-style Lite?!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 12 ounce bottle. Clear yellow appearance. Corn husk aroma. Tastes very yeasty. Palate is medium to light and there are moderate amounts of carbonation. It was ok, but I got bored quickly. I feel as if Monkshine should have a total score higher than 3.0, but there are no individual aspects that warrant high marks here. Translation: itís a nicely packaged, mediocre beer. I do like the graphical suggestions for proper glassware on the Uinta labels.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Toal Wine & More in Cherry Hill. Hazy straw pour supporting a Medium rocky white head. Aroma of mildly sour apples and yeast. Pretty straightforward Belgian style pale profile with yeast and malt playing off one another. Not much in the way of hops. Thin but not overly thin texture and a long, mildly sour finish. Not a special brew by any means but still reasonably refreshing and worth a try.

On guest tap at Haymarket pub. Pours clear amber with frothy sweet smelling head. Flavor is Sweet and complex but also quite light and crisp. Very good lighter Belgian.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Seems typical of a weak Belgian style ale. Spices of clove, maybe coriander, yeasty and fruity, with esters. I canít seem to appreciate the Belgian ale style much, so take this rating for what itís worth. Not my type -- I prefer IPAs.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a luminous golden color with no haze and a modest sized white head. Nose has some alcohol punch on it with light fruits such as peaches/pears. Some bready esters are present also, as well as on the palate. Some resembles a few qualities of a tripel, but in a more drinkable format. Finish is on the sweet side with quite a bit of alcohol warmth given the relatively low ABV.
