Pours a slightly cloudy straw yellow color with a thin white head. The head dissipates quickly leaving behind a swirl of thin foam resting on top. No lacing.
The aroma is refreshing and spicy. Yeast and wheat with citrus, banana, and spice.
The taste starts with a sweet malt and quickly works into a nice blend of wheat and yeast. A spiced banana bread with some lemon and orange citrus flavors follow with a nice wheat and coriander spice lingering in the aftertaste.
Light body with light to medium carbonation. A slightly oily mouthfeel with a dryness on the palate.
Overall, a very nice summer beer from Two Brothers! Very drinkable with nice rich flavors that would be prefect to enjoy on a hot day! Well balanced and refreshing with a very nice aroma to boot! Try one!

One fine body…
Monarch White is our anniversary ale brewed once a year in a
small batch. It is brewed with unmalted wheat and a touch of oats
for a light body and crisp, refreshing finish. It is then spiced with
coriander and orange peel giving this Belgian-style White Beer it's
traditional citrus aroma and flavor.
