Sampled this at the brewpub, the night before the Dark Lord release party. Served in a 23oz. hefeweizen glass. Awesome color, deep yellow,orange and almost pinkish, thats right pinkish color, and super cloudy. Most definitely, the cloudiest brew, I've ever had. Looks like a peach milkshake or a peach slurpy. Lots of carbonation, with a quick fading off white head. Fanastic smells of banana, candy, wheat and bubblegum. Very strong and an absolute pleasure to smell. Taste is just as good, yeast, bananas and sweet candy flavors. Good mouthfeel, creamy and low abv, I could drink this all night long. A nice surprise from Three Floyds and one I wish they would bottle. If ever at the brewpub, order up a Drunk Monk, you wont be dissapointed.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A- Pours hazy golden yellow with a one finger white head.
S- Hay, wheat, clove and banana. textbook.
T- A bold and refreshing burst of flavor on the tongue. A ton of clove on the tongue and a massive banana. Very true to the beers description. The malt is thick, creamy and has a lot of feel. A vanilla and a hint of caramel from the malt. Subtle herbal note as well as a slight spice and undeniable Belgian yeast.
M- It remains easy drinking, has a great texture and is refreshing. Excellent.
O- One of the best Hefe's I have had and without a doubt the best in the states.

22 ounce bottle into weizen glass; no bottle dating, but was released fairly recently. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big orange peel, pear, apple, banana, apricot, wheat, bread, bubblegum, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, hop notes; with good strength. Taste of orange peel, apricot, banana, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, bubblegum, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of orange peel, apricot, banana, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, bubblegum, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and moderate hop flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
