Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Axnjxn on 01-18-2014

White Ale brewed with spices.

Within the strangest existence, there is great depth of character. Such is indeed the case for the Albino MONKey. Ordained in the traditional order of Belgian wheat beers, Albino MONKey's wheat malt backbone is shrouded only by its sublimely complex sweetness. Its offerings of spicy hops, coriander, orange peel and white pepper spices need not be understood to be appreciated. Simply follow its divine path. Your obedience will be rewarded.

Strangeways "Albino Monkey"
On tap at the brewery, 18 December 2014
$8/20 oz. glass

Notes: Appearance: Very cloudy orange-ish brass body beneath a bright white head. I can only chalk it up to a dirty glass, but the head was short lived and left no lacing behind. Aroma: Coriander, wheat. Flavor: Coriander, wheat, some fruit (apple, banana), mild phenolic resembling plastic. Drying, spicy finish. Overall: Basic Belgian-style witbier that's easy to drink and enjoyable.

A: A murky amber range in color, with barely any head. The white head that does come up dissipears almost immediately.

S: Coriander, dried orange peel, clove, and a touch of banana. Something slightly odd in there.

T: Orange peel, a touch of coriander, and something really funky in there. There is something in the finish I can't quite pin down, but I don't like it. It isn't exactly tannin, or metallic, but something off.

M: Medium with moderate carbonation. A little cling in the finish.

O: Overall... meh.. So far I haven't been impressed with this brewery. Especially when there are so many better examples of the style out there.
