COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enchanting and enlightening, this golden, frothy ale boasts an intriguing herbal aroma, warming alcohol esters on the tongue and light, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor. Strong, sensual and satisfying.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2003 smells like spicy apple bread pudding. bubbly and cloudly sun-orange with a pretty white head that leaves itself in a sudsy layer, which eventually diminishes into a frothy ring. cute lace left. tastes a bit creamy, spicy apple. a tad tad thin, to be picky. cannot figure out the spices (brown sugar, honey, delicious) but it goes damn well with its fruitiness. strong brew, cannot tell that it is. this is a monkey that deserves bunches of bananas. excellent.

Golden orange with nice white head and lace that stays with the glass. Spicy aroma, yeast, vanilla, hops. Lively yet gentle carbonation. Sweet starting (like honey dipped donuts), heavy for a tripel, citrus, alcohol is prominent, cracker and vanilla aftertaste. Dry hoppy finish. Another great Victory beer.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Light gold in appear, if someone asked me to guess this beer based on appearance I'd guess Pilsner. Translucent with a moderate white head. Aroma is yeasty and very "Belgian", with alcohol esters. Spices must be very subtle,, with only pepper coming through on the finish. Fine Breew.

Fear the Monkey! It's delicious, it's somewhat sweet, and it's very strong. This beer tastes exotic but only comes from Pennsylvania.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2004 Very strong beer like a barleywine. It pours with a nice head and is light in color. It was an aged bottle. Really good. Good aroma to it, and those aromas change as the beer warms up. Very pleasant beer to drink.

This beer is almost overpowering in it's youth. The beer pours with a nice head that produces a light lace and has a very attractive orange-yellow color. The aromas seem to be constantly changing as the beer warms. Most smells are sweet, as is the taste. My initial taste produced almost entirely alcohol esters. While the beer was a little too cool, it tasted as though somehone had put a shot of Vodka in my beer. As it warmed, the alcohol nose and taste diminished, but never completely disappeared. Towards the end of the glass, the sweetness became very strong, almost overpowering. With at least a few months aging, this becomes a more mellow, rounded beer and it is much more enjoyable.

I liked this alot. Very lacy long lasting head. More mellow than others like New Belgium, but in a good way. Spices really came together as it warmed.

Pale ale appearance with a light head. Fruity belgian beer style aroma, and a belgian beer malty flavour. A reasonable belgian beer imitation.

BBB63 (5966) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Hazy golden hue with mostly diminishing head and okay lace. Aroma hinted of aromatic hops, lemongrass, hay, doughy yeast, ripe fruits (peach and plum)and touch of bubblegum and even smoke. Taste was fruity sweet with a nice sour undertone and some bitterness. Some spice appears towards the finish. The alcohol was very well hidden expect for a minor chest warming. This medium-bodied brew has a lush yet lively mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this tripel and would recommend it to anyone.

Bottled. Lovely golden body with a large bright white head. This beer head rich flavour and complexity with a satiny palate. Balanced and smooth, the alcohol never dominates.
