Quite dark red amber in the tulip, in fact it's the darkest Tripel I've ever seen. Very brief flirtation of foam, so fragile it's gone before you can take a sip. A little fruity aroma. Flat mouthfeel with a serious lack of carbonation.

Taste is warm, fruity, and a little woody. Starts off sugary but finishes dry and bitter from the Belgian yeast. Slightly tangy, like Hawaiian Punch with tonic water. Hot with alcohol. Winey, grapey, and a little tannic.

Not much yeasty flavor, just the drying sensation. Not much pleasure in this stuff. On tap at Local Habit in San Diego.

Served in a footed glass at Ale Arsenal. From notes. Reviewed 15 November 2013.

Very dark orange. Light head. Pretty. Smells lightly fruity, but also complex, malty, almost even...meaty? Not quite. Must be malt and fruit. The flavor is excellent, hints of the Belgian yeast and spicy grain. Clean spicy finish. Probably my favorite Monkish.

On tap at Brix in Sunset Beach, CA.

A: Pours a beautiful amber/orange with a hint of pink. Small half finger creamy off white head that quickly settles to a film.

S: Sweet smell of malt coupled with a nice floral juiciness from the hibiscus.

T: A nice balance of maltiness and citrus tart. The hibiscus works really well. There is a slight funk and peppery note from the yeast.

M: Medium carbonation and body.

O: A nice tart beer. The hibiscus and citrus slight sourness balance well with the maltiness of the beer.
