Single In The Sun
Belgian-Style Blonde Ale
Available in bottles
While Belgian monks have brought us boldly flavored and high octane beers such as Tripels and Quadrupels, the beer that they are most likely drinking themselves is a Singel or Patersbeir. Like those monks, at Barrel of Monks you’ll likely see us enjoying this clean and refreshing beer regularly as there is always something to be done and staying on as even a keel as possible is key. It’s both the perfect beer to begin your quest into the world of Belgian Ales and an ideal choice after a long day of toil and trouble.
Dry-Hopped Blonde with Passionfruit
We brewed this light and crisp ale for our friends in Jupiter, FL. A 4.5% blonde ale with passionfruit, and was dry-hopped to provide tropical fruit notes without the sweetness from the fruit and the bitterness from the hops.
Belgian Style Tripel
Available in bottles
Possibly the most well known and timeless style of Belgian Abbey Ales is the tripel. In keeping with that tradition we use only the finest European malts and hops to craft Three Fates. The nose offers floral notes and zesty yeast aromas. Hints of stone fruits, caramel, and spices accompany this full flavored golden yellow ale. This complex beer pairs extraordinarily well with food and can be aged for years for those people that practice patience.
Available in bottles
The quadrupel is the grandaddy of the Abbey style ales. Typically, they are dark, strong ales bursting with flavors such as dark fruit, chocolate and raisins and our Quadraphonic is no exception. This dense beer hides its 10.5% ABV well with a deep brown color and a long rich finish. The Quadraphonic is a beer designed for celebration and decadence.
Belgian Style Witbier
Wizard is our flagship ale at Barrel of Monks, and for good reason. This is our Belgian style witbier, or wheat ale. This beer is pale yellow in color with a slight haze. It has a mild bready tang from the wheat malt which complements the bitter orange peel and coriander spice. This refreshingly wheat ale is lighter in body than most wheat beers, which make this ale perfect after a long day.
Odd Breed: Vestigial Grove*
Wild Barrel Aged Farmhouse Ale with Marionberries
This easy drinking Farmhouse Ale was brewed with imported Pilsner malt and Hallertau Mittelfruh hops, and fermented in stainless steel with one of our favorite Belgian yeast strains. After primary fermentation, the beer was transferred onto Oregon Marionberries and then aged in our French oak puncheons for 10 months. After barrel aging, we added a healthy dose of dark Belgian Candi syrup and naturally conditioned in the bottle. Fruity and slightly earthy with notes of blackberries, plums, and dates, this easy drinking Saison finishes with our signature funk and a touch of refreshing acidity.
2021 Grand Cru*
Belgian Dark Strong Ale
This year's Grand Cru is indeed special, it is a Belgian-style dark strong ale. While quadrupels generally fall into that classification, this beer is a good bit different than our Quadraphonic. It has a more complex grain bill, is even stronger, and is fermented with a different yeast strain. The beer pours with a thick amber head, has a deep ruby/black hue, and smells of dark fruit (however no fruit was added)! The flavor profile is complex, starting with dark cherry and moving to raisin and caramel. A pleasant hop finish balances things out.
Blood Orange Vanilla Wit
Wheat Ale with Blood Orange & Vanilla
If a pineapple is neither an apple nor a pine, what the f* is it? We found it to be the perfect citrusy addition to an abundantly dry-hopped IPA already exploding with tropical fruit notes. How 'bout them pineapples?
Belgian-Style Amber Ale
From a virtuoso piece of music performed by nimble dexterous fingers to show its performers’ abilities, Toccata describes poise, skill and technique. We believe that our Amber Ale shows off these same attributes. Expertly blending high quality German 2-Row barley and crystal malts gives this beer a brilliant color and lends notes of toasty bread and subtle fruit from the yeast. Harmony and balance are the key, letting all the flavors come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.
IPA : Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo & Mandarina Bavaria
In a world full of over bitter IPAs, our Endless Enigma is the perfect blend, plenty of hop flavor and aroma without the mouth-numbing bitterness that many pale ales offer. Our twist on an IPA provides a bold juicy flavor that comes from the Citra, Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria and Amarillo hops. Now let us be clear, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a big, bold and bitter beer, but we simply lean towards offering a bit more malt balance and yeast character in our Belgian style IPA.
Single in Havana
Belgain Style Blonde with Guava
A beer that started as a one-off that we'd send to a few local accounts, grew into one of seasonal fruit beers. Now by popular demand, Single in Havana will now be available all year!
It's a light blonde ale at 4.5% with a hint of guava. We pitch our fruit during fermentation to dry out the beer. What that does is provide the flavor and aroma of guava without the overwhelming sweetness. The perfect crisp and refreshing ale to enjoy outdoors.
How 'Bout Them Pineapples
IPA with Pineapple
