3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at WFB, amber-brown with a thin lacing head, a little demerara and banana on the nose. Toffee and a little grapefruit on the palate, a little burnt caramel, sweet but not overly so for a Belgian brown. An interesting US-Belgian fusion.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
August 11th, 2013 - West Flanders’ Angry Monk is colored with one might expect to be the fevered, red ruddy cheeks of an ill-tempered Belgian monk, but it has all the awkwardness of one too. The aroma is exceedingly soapy, maybe tainted, or maybe that’s part of the recipe, but it only barely lifts enough to catch the other scents of light caramel and some crystal malt. The flavor is boozy, bullying up front with heavy alcohol notes, and follow-up tastes of strawberry and banana. The palate is thin and wan, but the flavors, as discombobulated as they are, aren’t too bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from a trade. From notes. Forgot about this one. Pours a clear dark amber with a red hue and a finger of off-white head. Aroma of bready yeast, toffee and nuts. Taste is light bitter and follows aroma with some light herbal hops and caramel. Medium bodied with a slightly slick textures lively carbonation and a decently longs finish. Overall, not bad. If I lived in Boulder I would probably frequent this place. Very good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at the brewery with TheDude. Pours a hazed golden color with white head. Aroma of odd belgian yeast, some sugar, odd sickeningly sweet fruit. Flavor is cloying. Very cloying. In fact, if I were asked to define cloying I would give them this beer. So very sweet. Sweet like odd old fruit and sugar. Lots of alcohol towards the finish. Nope.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Sweet tobacco and unripe red plum and strong banana and caramel with a sloppy, goopy malt texture. Ugh. Sugary, sweet, acidic, dirty, rotting fruit with a flabby, thin, watery body. Horrible. Sweet, stew-y caramel banana mush of a beer.
