Ritual Brewing Monk's Lunch

What the brewers say

“Monk’s Lunch is a crisp, light Belgian-style ale that boasts a golden body, aromas of spice and pear with a perfectly balanced taste of sweet malt and earthy hops. Finishes dry, clean, and crisp.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light, delicate floral and honey with orange citrus. There’s almost an orange-creamsicle character to it. Behind that, there’s some fresh bread dough and a touch of grass. Slight spice on the back.”

Flavor: “The orange citrus comes out more in the flavor with honeyed cracker after. A moderate sweetness up front with a moderate bitterness after. Slightly spiced hops character. The beer is light overall without being watery.”

Overall: “The brewer did a great job of packing a lot of complexity into a small beer. Nice ester and malt character! Although it’s light, it’s not thin.”
