Single In The Sun, a Belgian-style Single by Barrel of Monks Brewing

Share This Review

Single In The Sun is a Belgian-style Single brewed by Barrel of Monks Brewing, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a bottle.


The Single pours a cloudy yellow-gold and is topped by a finger-thick cap of fizzy white froth that bubbles away rapidly. The reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue.


The aroma is faint but wafts a scent of grain and yeast.

The palate begins with a taste of cracker that transitions to lightly tart citrus flavors of grapefruit and lemon. Spicy phenols are picked up on the backend and impart a taste of pepper and clove. A light base of biscuit and honey tie the palate together.


Its feel is crisp, dry, and lively with a medium-light body and high carbonation.


Bad news first: its appearance doesn’t meet the expectations for the style as its head retention is poor and it lacks that trademark Belgian lace. And its aroma is simple and faint. But this Single does receive high marks for its feel and flavor. Its tart and spicy palate combine beautifully with its carbonic feel. Single In The Sun is so easy to tilt back and very refreshing. Could make for a good lawnmower beer.
