BREWVIEW ON UINTA BREWING CO. MONKSHINE

APPEARANCE / THE POUR:
6.5% ABV. Served at 59 ° F. Pours a medium golden color with a 2-finger head that collapses at a medium rate. A ¼ inch head remains after the head collapses, but there is a nice instance of Brussels lacing on the sides of the glass.

AROMA / BOUQUET:
This is one of those beers that the bouquet changes nicely as the beer temperature warms. The initial bouquet is of faint apricot, with some yeastiness and breadiness. As the beer warms, very delicate Belgian vanilla esters develop (around 10-15 minutes).

TASTE:
Slight dry graininess, grassiness, with hop bitterness in the finish.

MOUTHFEEL / PALATE:
Hop dryness on the middle of the tongue, bready malt aftertaste.

FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:
Go with spicy foods with this one. Pizza, Mexican, Thai.

OVERALL IMPRESSION:
A good session beer with good quality, Like many other craft breweries with beers brewed in the Belgian-Style / Belgian Inspired categories, we feel this beer will improve over time.
