COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by traditional refectory ales brewed by monks for the monks table, Spencer is a full-bodied, golden-hued Trappist ale with fruit accents, a dry finish and light hop bitterness. St. Josephs Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts, is home to a community of Trappist monks and the first American Trappist brewery. Following the Benedictine tradition of ora et labor (prayer and work), the monks pursue a simple life of contemplative prayer, a manual labor and hospitality. The brewery helps support the monks and their charitable outreach.

12oz bottle. Have had this several times and for some reason never gotten around to rating it. Very impressed when it first came out. Rivals many of the ales from Belgium and is up there with Ommegang for this style brewed in the states.
