Barrel of Monks Strawberry Beret hit the shelves of my local liquor store recently. This is a Belgian-inspired amber ale brewed with strawberries. Bottled 11/15/2018. Drink 12/15/2018. 5.0% alcohol.
Very nice aroma, spicy, sweet jammy, fruity. Lightly tart to start. Good body and richer than I was expecting. Caramel and strawberry jam flavors are prominent. There is a subtle Belgian yeast character and a little acidity in the finish. Nice sweet and tart contrast! I liked it (and I bet Prince would have too)!
