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.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Pours a medium dark amber. Aromas of orange, clove, and some pepper. Flavors are sour, orange, clove and other spice. Not a favorite style.

Strykzone (6632) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Pours a nice honey gold color with a big active white head. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma is clove and spice. Flavors go along with the aroma and are much more in line with a hefeweizen. Hops are deep underneath the clove and honey. Nice oily lacing on the glass.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle (2003 or 2004) ... Cloudy golden ale with a mid-sized, tissue paper-like, white head. Good retention. Estery, phenolic, yeasty aroma dictates fruitcake, cinnamon, biscuit, clove, apple, pear, coriander and honey notes. Medium-bodied with an extremely drying mouthfeel. Fruity flavor is very low on residual sweetness and, but offers a tempered bitterness. Citric and moderately tart with a grassy note of clover. Tangy, Sahara-dry finish sucks all the moisture from my head. Over attenuated? Strange, interesting brew! Kudos go out to maniac for shipping the bottle my way!

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Rather basic Belgian with, as they say, banana and honey flavors. No new ground broken here, but this one might have a little more depth than the typical American attempt at the style.

jrob21 (3403) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Muted yellow color with a decent white head. Much more belgian than IPA with some yeast and wheat like characteristics. In fact there is almost no hops here and is pretty much all spice and wheat in the aroma and flavor. Needing a little refinement.

IndianaRed (3742) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle pours slightly hazy yellow witha persistent whit film of a head. Dusty stale aroma. Dry slightly tart flavor. LIght malts and a mild Belgian flavor. Dry and lively. faint lemony trailer.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a good amount of head. Odd spicy malty flavor with a quick finish.
