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.

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

Drake (10518) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from State Line Liquors, opened 5/16/11. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus, bready notes and a tart finish. The taste is citrus, lightly tart notes, plum, some other fruits. Can’t help but shake a canned tomato vibe. Medium bodied.

Reid (2080) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2011
12 oz single from Roths Sunnyside market, S.Salem. $1.50 Slightly misty lookng golden beer with a very bubbly off white head. Aroma is slightly spiced some slight earthiness.weak clove, cereal and some slight earthiness. Taste is strange not like the aroma..semi-bitter..tasty..some black pepper and thats it. Its OK on the tongue the carbonation is OK but far from a great mouthfeel. Not impressed by thisn one..i guess its drinkable..but a dissapointing Belgian style ale

ross (2125) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Yellow color with a white head on it. Smell is fruity and full of straw. Little bit of grass, but no hops noted. Taste smooth and pretty easy to drink, but it is ivery close to drinking water. Not impressed.

Hazy gold with a thin whitish head. Vanilla aroma. Thin and light despite the alcohol content. A bit watery in the finish. Not a particular standout.

Tonkun (1163) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Yellow orange pour with a finger thick head that turned into a nice lacing shortly after. Banana, apple, spice. Light body, too much carbonation for the body. Light slight bitter finish Some beligun characteristics. Not impressive for a Unita.

bottle. nose has some apple and cherry esters. pours with almost no head. taste is super sweet candy and reminds me of salt water taffy. a light hop bitterness helps dry it out. a moderate alcohol warming as well. tolerable, but not a beer I would seek out again. seems a little messy and sweet with almost not carbonation for a Belgian style beer.

radarsock (1116) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Third beer consumed from the MYSTERY BOX, sent from my father. Many thanks! To long-stemmed tulip, it pours a dark orange-tinted royal yellow with which a bubbly, snowy white head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of apricot fruit leather, Belgian yeast, coriander, vanilla malt, melted wax, and lime meat. Tastes much the same with the addition of tin, wet newspaper, and watermelon seeds. Not the most flavorful vaguely defined Belgian Ale in the world, but it’s hardly the worst.
