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.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle. Poured a nice amber with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Aroma of grain and grass initially, followed by malt, yeast, and hints of spice as it warmed. The flavor found toasted malts and spice. Light to medium body with a light toasted malt aftertaste. Nice session ale.

jgb9348 (6049) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Crisp amber coloured body with a copper glow and a thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of light malt, a touch of fruit and a little bit of nuts. Light-bodied; A malty flavour at first with some sweetness from raisins and fruits soon afterwards with a very crisp and nutty finish. Aftertaste shows some sweetness, caramel, fruits and a little malty alcohol finish. Overall, a pretty simple and mild beer - no strong flavours one way or another. Drinkable for sure, but not very enjoyable. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in St. Petersburg, Florida on 13-November-2010 sampled in New Paltz, New York on 19-February-2011.

ExpendableHero (901) - Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Copper brew with an off white head. Aromas of faint sugars and caramel. Taste is of sweet malts, caramel, and some hints of Belgian candy sugars. Might even have some hefeweizen in it. Easy to drink, smooth mouth feel. Not bad for the style, but it did not really stand out.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper with small whitish head. The aroma is a little bit musty with some orange and earth notes. The flavor is caramel and a whole lot of plant matter. There is an ever so slight earthy bitterness to it. Weird... not sure I like it.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2012 Wheat, spices, abricot. Bit sour and more sweetness later on. Pretty nice. Fierce bubbles and okay aftertaste. Nice beer without being overwhelming. Rerated: Clean copper body and bubbly light beige head. Oatmeal, cookies, chestnuts and dry twigs. (On my Florida trip)
