poured a slightly foggy golden amber with a small, large-bubbled head. smells faintly of hops, freshly cut grass, and overripe fruit. it has a round, mellow feel in the mouth, with flavors of dried apricots, hops, toast, and bitter citrus. this beer has a minor release of gasses isnít the most exciting in the finish, but overall itís quite pleasant and light.

This was quite a good tripel style, although it was a bit uninspiring in the nose and finish. It had a fantastic taste, however, with an explosion of spices, bitterness, and citrus. It died off almost immediately in the finish, however, and was ultimately a bit disappointing.

Pjk33- keep "Rockiní In The USA," dude! This should be called Golden Monkey Tripel LITE, as it is a very mellow version of the style. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Nice brew for newbies to "break the ice" when getting familiar with this style.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 You could easily have three pints of this stuff and wake up in a tree the next morning. Itís strong, sweet and spicy, but apart from the alcohol-rich exhale, its taste belies the brain melting power of the monkey.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden, almost honey, in color with a whiteish head. Hazy body with some floaties in it. Yeasty honey, lemony, wheaty aroma. Honey taste along with wheat, lemon, yeast and good dose of malts to keep things balanced. There is also a bit of spiciness that makes this ineteresting. Tingly on the tounge but easy to drink.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very interesting beer...the nose is almost like a pilsner, but stronger, and the appearance is a cloudy orange color with a nice amount of white head. The flavor is VERY malty at the beginning, with hints of fruits. The tail end brings in some spices. The body is surprisingly full, with the change in flavors from beginning to end. The alcohol does come through, but not too much that it takes away from the beer.

march 2003 bottle.the moneky poured out a very light orange with a very small head for a tripel.my nose was greeted with aromas of belgian yeast,malts,and sugar.the flavor was very soothing and complex.it started with some caramel malts,then came the second stage featuring sweet candy and sugar.round three swung at me with the belgian yeast.then finally i got a bit of a sour flavor.pretty nice stuff overall.this is one of the best american tripels i have had.

Well, itís certainly golden in colour, with some haze. A remarkably easy drinking beer for its strength. Relatively soft and mellow mouthfeel. Clean and fresh. Apple was the main flavour I pulled out. Pretty solid, but I wasnít blown away by this beer. Bottled at the Green Leafe cafe, Williamsburg.
