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.

Pours a golden color with a thick white head. Spicy aroma of yeast and bread. The flavor is very light, thin on the palate, easy to drink. A touch of yeast and citrus flavors. A good beer.

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.

Bottle. Pours golden medium white head. Aroma of citrus and spice, hay, yeast. Mild sweetness in the taste. Light body, high carbonation, rusty bitterness in the finish. Not my favorite from this brewer.

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

Had it on tap at the Chicago Craft Beer Festival 6/22/13. Poured a clear yellow color, with a weak belgian flavor and malt aftertaste.

Pours a slightly clouded golden with a quick, thin white head. Nose is fairly weak and is a mix of light generic sugary fruit and a pinch of floral hops. Flavor is also disappointingly weak and uninteresting. Malt character is about as bland as you can get this side of a Budweiser. There’s a little hops and maybe even a glimmer of orange peel on the backside, but it takes effort to find that much taste. It’s not offensive but it’s incredibly boring.

I like this better than most it seems. Pours a Yellow clear color with real small carbonation showing. Head disipates but a slight lace remains. Nice Belgian style nose, some fruit. Great taste with hints of clove, sweetness, fruit. Very drinkable, and would drink more if I had the foresight to buy more!

Bottle. After having tried another beer by this maker that I enjoyed (Punk’n), I thought I’d grab a bottle of this and see what was up. Golden body when poured with a small white head. The body has a medium feel. The taste has lots of hops. A bit of a caramel taste at first, with some spice and fruit to the taste. The finish is mild instead of bitter, a relatively weak finish but I think that suits this beer fine. This is actually a very accessible, easy-to-drink beer. Maybe not the best of its variety, but I think I’d introduce people to it who wanted to find a good starter. Would def. grab another bottle! 6.8% alcohol.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Poured a cloudy yellowish-to-amber color, with a small, maybe two-fingered head. The aroma was malty, spicey with a little bit of hoppiness, complex, but about what you’d expect for an American version of a Belgian beer. The flavor was spicey, with corriander and pepper notes, there’s too much bitterness here for me which kills the beer a little, but its still drinkable. Nice.

Tap, pours a golden color with a white head, sweet taste of malt, banana, and some spice, drinks smooth, decent Belgian ale (Yard House listed this as Uinta House White Ale but after researching the brewer’s website, I figured this was the beer)
