Awesome! This beer is like others from this brewery- uncompromising. They donít pander to the light beer crowd, but instead brew the best beer you can get in North America. I canít wait until they get the bottling line running.

A truly outstanding brew! A little fruity with hints of caramel. Creamy. Dry bitters with a long lingering sweet aftertaste. Highly recommended!

I was lucky enough to attend a beer dinner featuring Sound brewings beers and Monkís Indiscretion was my favorite of the night. Great nose with some floral hope notes, good mouth feel and flavour. It became one of my top favorites that night.

I loved this beer when I had it a couple weeks ago at Brouwerís Cafe in Seattle. I didnít notice a lot of Belgian styling, but for an Imperial IPA, I liked it a lot. The dimly lit environment makes me hesitant to comment on the appearance, but the aroma was beautiful and citrusy. The palate was creamy and resinous, but not overwhelmingly so. Overall, I thought this beer was dynamite stuff. I hope I get to try more from this new Washington state brewery.

So I get asked all the time what my favorite beer is, and even though I canít sell it yet, Monks Indiscretion is it. Aroma is out of this world. Passion fruit, tangerine, wonderful citrahop aromas. Itís unbelievable. You almost donít want to drink it. But that would be stupid. Pours orange golden with a phenomenal head. Perfect carbonation. Iíve had a lot of this beer. Only at the brewery, Sound brewery, but I was not surprised when they placed in Seattle Cask Fest Peopleís choice. This is one sick beer. Sweet yet dry, fruity, well balanced hops, a bit of bitter in the middle, and wonderful balanced finish. Tasted from the tap @ 55F.

Poured from 650ml bottle, clear golden amber colour. Grapefruit and juicy, ripe peach on the nose. Mild grapefruit, ripe peach again and maybe a little orange peel to the taste, just enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Perfect mouthfeel. Itís like a hoppy E.S.B. but with Belgian yeast. Very interesting, incredibly tasty, a good place for the hop head and the belgian lover to meet in the middle and share a good beer.

Very sublime. Surprisingly easy drinking considering the ABV. Belgian yeast. Some dark fruits. Sorta quad lite, with a hint of trippel.

Often strong Belgian style ales are too sweet for my taste, but this fantastic entry adds reasonable bitterness - 48 IBU, making for a delightfully balanced entry.

Tap at Hawthorne hop house. Goblet. Mahogany with medium white head. Smells of tart dark fruit, Belgian style. Belgian yeast, dark fruit. Well handled alcohol. Totally my type of beer. Delicious.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big mango, pineapple, orange peel, pepper, clove, banana, bubblegum, herbal, floral, grass, earth, and spicy yeast esters. Damn nice aromas with good balance, complexity, and strength of hop and yeast ester notes. Taste of big mango, pineapple, orange zest, banana, clove, pepper, pear, bubblegum, grass, floral, bread, honey, and earthy yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of citrus, tropical fruit, clove, banana, pepper, floral, grass, pear, and earthy yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of hops flavors and spicy yeast esters; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a slick and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a moderate warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent hoppy Belgian strong golden ale! Great complexity and balance of hop and yeast esters; and very smooth to sip on for 10%. A highly enjoyable offering.
