Uinta Monkshine

uinta_monkshine

Monkshine is a certified organic Belgian-style Blonde Ale from the Uinta Brewing Co. of Salt Lake City, Utah.  The strongest note is banana.  There’s banana in the aroma, and through the middle where it starts to fade away.  I think I taste some cherry as well.  There are some hoppy undertones, like a hint of lemon in the middle and into the finish, but this is predominantly a sweet beer, with a bit of balancing tartness…Not really much in the way of bitterness at all.  This blonde ale will probably be most appealing to fans of fruit beers.

I give it a 3.7 out of 5.
