3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden-yellow color, cloudy beer, with a small white head. Aroma is very hoppy, bananas, honey and spices. Syrupy texture and gentle carbonation for a sweet medium-bodied beer. Taste is VERY sweet, fruity, with spices (especailly cloves and pepper). Nice dry finish. This is honey with a hint of alcohol: golden, syrupy, sweet, great!

Orange-yellow cloudy beer with a large white head. Aromas of green apple, orange, coriander, and warm spiciness. Also notes of raisins, brown sugar, and bubble gum. Flavour is terrific, yeasty, fruity, and spicy. Finish is quite dry and refreshing. As the beer warms up, spice become more prominent. Alcohol is noticible here, but is not unpleasant. Fairly full-bodied for the style.

Poured golden yellow with a fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is hoppy and refreshing. Taste is intially belgian fruit with a sweet spiciness, gradually drifiting towards a slightly alcoholic, dry brandy-like finish. A very nice abbey tripel.

Nice clean belgian flavors of peppery spice, clove. wonderful beer, but not something you want to drink too many off because they will sit you down. Good example of a american belgian style beer, a bit too generic I want to taste like all belgian tripels sort of thing, but I still gotta love it

So, I needed a new mojo-boosting beer for the UConn-WVU football game. Victory Monkey! Can’t have a better sign than to drink a Victory Monkey before the big game!
Well, UConn lost, but the beer is good. It’s hazy golden-orange with a small head that was gone in an instant. It had a lot of noticeable little floaties in it. It has a great, albeit subdued floral aroma with hints of citrus, spice and yeast. The flavor is slightly hoppy with a subdued spice. The alcohol taste is present, but it’s very well balanced. It has a dry, floral finish. The 9.5 will get you popped pretty quick, which is good for taking a little sting out of the UConn loss

Pours a hazy golden orange, with a nice white head. Aroma is bananas, lemon, and awesome "fruit snacks". Taste is banana, Vanilla and cloves, also grapes and similar to a hefe-weiss with a tad more alcohol. Very fruitful and flavorful. Wow, I love you Victory SpringsLicker is my Hero! :) Thanks Man!

Pretty dark for the style. Average Head. Very little lacing. Yawn..
The nose is lovely. Pears, nail polish, lemon and caramel. The nose is very herbal as well.
This is a sharp, fruity and very alive Triple. Very spicy with coriander, orange peel and very fruity with mango, pineapple and green apples. Dry finish. Alcohol hidden very well.
This is a great take on the style.
