COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian table beer was inspired by the sessionable trappist offering often referred to as a “single.” Thou not typically as lauded as the big Belgian tripels and quads, the single is a perfect beer for relaxing with friends or enjoying a meal. Similarly, our Monk & Honey is a beer meant to be enjoyed with good company and pairs great with food. Brewed with barley, Belgian yeast, and local honey this beer is simple yet complex. A light floral quality and hint of sweetness remain from the honey nicely complementing the simple grain bill and earthy/spicy Belgian yeast.

Pour is a nice golden color with a good frothy head. Taste is grass hoppy with a nice spice kick. A bit floral. Was hoping the honey would stand out more.

Comes a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grain, yeast, and honey. Taste is malt, grain, spice, yeast, honey, and a bit of floral. Thought it a bit odd at first, but by the end of the glass it was very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted at Kansas City Beerfest at Union Station October, 2015. I had so many that this rating might be a bit off. ;)

Mostly clear light golden with a finger of white head that settles to a dollop and leaves great lacing. Aroma is somewhat floral and fruity with a bit of perceived sweetness. Taste has herbal and floral hops with some honey sweetness that is balanced by a light phenolic flavor from the Belgian yeast and finishes with some spiciness. Light/medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable balanced flavors and very drinkable.

skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Pours bright orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of belgian yeast, ripe fruit, some mustiness, honeyed sweet malts, and some light funk. Taste is similar to the aroma with the addition of some light herbal hop notes. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a slightly bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice belgian ale.

seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. Presented as a Belgian Singel with honey. It poured a hazy golden amber colour with white foam and lace. Very light grainbill, almost neutral malt-wise, emphasizing light earthy hops and subtle yeast spice. Super light body and strong carbonation. Hints of black pepper, clove, bubble gum. In my experience, it’s almost impossible to keep any honey character in a finished beer, and this was no exception. Since I knew to look for it, maybe there was the slightest sign of honey in the aftertaste, but not much. Even so, this was a tasty and refreshing table-strength Belgian ale.

3.7
theisti (4203) - Kansas, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Draft Goblet at Barley’s Brewhaus in Leawood, Kansas. The pour is hazed copper brown with a small off white head. The aroma is initially glass cleaner, then opens up to nut, floral, and clove yeast. The taste is a really nice Belgian raisin nutty spice, honey sweet and yeast in the back. The palate is medium to heavy bodied with soft carbonation and the lingering yeast grass finish. Nice balance of flavors, solid well built beer.
