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.

Murky golden bronze with a thick head that settled fast leaving a minimal lace. Malty alcoholic fruit aroma. Nice smooth malty fruit taste with a bit of spice. Good beer for a cold night it, warms you up.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Pours like it's name: golden. A nice layer of head and lacing. Citrus (maybe lemon) and hop aromas. Yeasty flavors of hop and lemon. Creamy palate. Well balanced tripel.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Lightly golden color with light head and average lacing. The aroma much like that of a blond with a light citrus & hop presence. The flavor is very refined for a tripel, very citrusy and spicy with some esters at the end, light yeast. Mouthfeel is very carbonated (as style dictates) and a creamy somewhat musky end. Overall, the real suprise here is how well the abv is hidden.

Just finished my first Monkey and I am still thinking about it. It was a nice golden color, not much of a head but had unique taste with moderate carbonation. The 9.5% ABV is well hidden in the flavor of fruit which I can not pinpoint. Very good tasting beer, time to start the next.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Pours a brilliant cloudy golden (not surprising) color with a quickly diminishing thick frothy white head. Huge fruit aroma with a hint of alcohol. The flavor matches, starting very sweet and fruity and building to a more complex finish with pepper, cloves and malty notes. Light, velvety body with lively carbonation. Very drinkable. Excellent.

Can you say ESTHERS? Man, I have heard the good and bad about this and even watched as a friend poured infected 750 down drain before I knew it. So glad to say that I like bananas and that this was a day for desert before dinner. (and a good eventual compliment to spicey poblano mash poatoes). Savored this. Strong, sensual and satisfying - i just cut and pasted that from adjacent commercial description because it was true - it glides over the tongue. Yum. Thanks again urbn.

not real bad for an American knock-off of Triple Abbey. Aroma is scary, nice color, good head and carbonation in genereal, flavor too complex (possibly to hide the high ABV?). I much prefer the Stoudts Triple as an American version. Excellent warm feeling.

Very fruity, and hides the alcohol well. It has the complex balance that one looks for in an abbey. Definately worth trying.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2004 When I got a wiff of this I was worried, has an overwhelming alchohol smell but with a nice little hint of peaches. One taste and I was hooked, this is one of the more unique tasting beers I've tried. Very fruity, mostly banana and some apple flavors, and it coats your mouth really nice. The alchohol wasn't as evident in the taste as I thought it would be, just a nice warming kick at the end. This was incredible, my second beer from Victory and they're 2 for 2. Can't wait to try Prima Pils next week.

Big head of white bubbles that compact to a dense foam. Good carbonation. Plesant aroma of spices and yeast with maybe a hint of apples. Color is a medium pale gold that is slightly hazy. Flavor is spicy (perhaps cloves) with a slight alcohol presence. Finish is quite nice. Leaves a thin coating in the mouth and more spices which tingle on the lips and gums. A very good triple that is spicer than some but not as complex as others. A winner anyway.
