Stumblin' Monk is a Belgian-style tripel with a certain je ne sais quois about it that will have you stumblin' drunk trying to figure it out. Three secret spices, along with the traditional coriander, orange peel and Belgian Candi sugar, are fermented by yeast from a real Trappist monastery, making this a beer that truly must be tasted to be described. Stumblin' Monk has a deep golden color, which belies its hearty body and high alcohol content. The aroma gives away its secrets of coriander and orange peel, but its flavor is simply (or more accurately,

    Hazy peach colored pour with no head.Sweet fruity nose almost candy like. Sweet fruity flavor with a spiciness that is intriguing.Coriander and orange blossoms with a little clove.Nice full yet light mouthfeel. Another excellent brew from the guys at Alesmith.

    This beer came courtesy of Tom Nickel who was kind enough to break this out of his personal cellar at Obriens last night. This beer pours a cloudy yellow color with a thin white soapy head which was practically non-existent. The aroma is coriander, ginger and other big time spices....sour and pepperminty all in one...it was truly different from any sort of Alesmith beer Ive come to expect. Medium bodied, peppery and dry finish, lemon hints, peach hints, coriander and citrus peel..sweet dry finish... absolutely phenomenal rare beer..it had faded somewhat with time, but still had many of its highly carbonated, spicey and fruity qualities.

    Hazy orange pour w/ no head. The aroma is like spearmint w/ some fruity notes. Medium mouthfeel w/ a velvety texture and a soft fruity taste on the tongue. Finishes smoothly. Absolutely no hint of alcohol. Great job.

    This tripel pours with a cloudy golden body with little head or lacing. It smells like a halls menthol cough drop. The flavor is slightly sweet and minty with a nice fruitiness and great spice notes. Medium bodied and very smooth.

    appearance was reminiscent of apple cider on a hot early autumn afternoon, glowing in the sun waiting to be savored, the head was but only lace swirling in the center of the glass like a trippy picture, aroma was sweet, banana-like with hints of orange, honey, and spice. Extremely low carbonation, banana cream pie, orange, alcohol, pumkin pie (all kinds of pies going on here) Strong and sweet with a very spicy finish which reminds me of christmas trees...piney I suppose, the more it warmed the greater this brew became..another time: I think that this is the very last bottle of this on the planet..mmm..the aroma was like a creamy ginger pie, thats better than the first time..superbly creamy with a hard hitting warming..the yeast, the spice, and whatever the hell else is in there combine so nicely that this is by far the most balanced tripel ive ever had...notes of orange peel, mint, nutmeg, coriander, banana bread and pumpkin pie
