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.

hopscotch (10118) - 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.

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

Drake (10689) - 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 (2091) - 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 (2128) - 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 (1210) - 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.
