Formerly brewed for Inlet Brewing Co. (ex Jupiter Brewing Co.) by Orlando Brewing Co., now by Thomas Creek.

This unique copper-colored ale derives its fruity, slightly spicy aroma from authentic Belgian Abbey yeast. The subtle nutty and malty sweet flavors sing in harmony with the freshest organic hops vailable. Monk In the Trunk devotees are known to chant about its most intriguing quality, true drinkability.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours out a darker red color with a tan head on it. Smell is fruity and contains some malts as well. It is pretty easy to drink with a little bit of a sweetness to it. Not bad, but not really memorable.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle. Sweet and lightly toasty nose. Minty/floral notes - wha? Clear, pale transparent orange with a sudsy white head. Crisp and lightly toasty, has some orange peel highlights, subtle mustiness, and a quenching medium, juicy body. Really, really enjoyed, refreshing and different.

was recently in florida and went to the office in delray beach where they had monk on draft - omg it was terrible! the bartender highly suggested this amber and said it was a local florida brew but in reality it was created in florida but actually contract brewed in south carolina - the brew itself wasnt balanced well - the nose had a light malty aroma , the body was extremely light & the taste itself was very bland & just didnt finish well - first and last taste was all diacetyl - dont waste your money

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Copper colored beer with a fading head and no carbonation make a flat looking beer. The aroma has a sour banana and lemon smell with a slight honey smell. Lacking a pronounced hops note but a trained nose can catch some. The beer has a sour taste to match the smell. Salt was the main taste characteristic. The organic method behind the beer leaves out the desired taste. There was not much else to remember about this beer besides the kitchy name.

I really like Belgian beers, but Ill make an exception for this one. Nothing worth bragging about. Not a lot of taste, kind of a wuss of a beer. Little on the nose, little to distinguish itself on the palate. Lots of good Belgian-style beers in the world - dont waste your time on this one.

NJJereme (386) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours an amber color (obviously) w/ a tan/off-white head. Sweet aroma on the pour. Has a crisp and somewhat tingly feel on the finish. Combination of yeast and clove. Medium bodied.

Aurelius (5215) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Perfumy, musk-vinegar-woody Belgian aroma with clear candy tones. Clear, amber-brown, bad label. This tastes a lot better than it smells -- woody, Belgian amber flavor, medium-light hopping. Silky mouthfeel, medium-heavy boddy. Light, woody, moldy-herbal aftertaste. There are funky off/sulphuric flavors and aromas at various points. There are things that should probably not be attempted in the Florida heat and humidity. New Leaf Market.
