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.

Bottle from strykzone. Thanks! Very interesting beer. Pours a hazy godl with a big white head. Aroma of yeast, banana, honey, apple juice and malts. Flavor is yeasty, sweet, a tad spicy and a very small hop profile. I do believe this beer is way underrated.

On tap-Judges Bench Clear golden pour w/a good size foamy head. Classic sweet, doughy aroma of a Belgian Blond. Medium sweetness w/some colander/spice, bread dough, wheat, white pepper, & banana. I thought this was quite good, a very pleasant surprise. This could easily be an everyday drinker. Alcohol was well hidden, long spiced wheat finish. Seems very underrated to me.

Wasn’t expecting a great beglium for this one. But it was great. Has a good after taste.

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.

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

Cybercat (4291) - Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Aroma is fairly strong, fruity and yeasty with floral and malt undertones. It pours a clear solar yellow with a thick white head that dissipates rather quickly. Smooth flavor is malty and mellow with a floral undertone and a nice fruity hint that is mainly pear. Texture is smooth, a little thick, and rather fizzy. Pretty good!

Interesting beer made by the monks. Pretty dark and pretty malty. This is a good Belgium beer.
