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: JAN 26, 2006 Sweet, sweet nectar. I had a dream that I kissed an angel, and this is what her lips tasted like. One sip of Golden Monkey puts a big grin on my face every time. Do not pass this brew up.

Bitter flavoured ale, has an almost sour aftertaste which diminishes fairly quickly. Color is a slightly cloudy gold. Pours a minimal amount of head with very light lace. Spicing is strong but finishes nicely. Truly Unique

IndianaRed (3791) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Bottle Pours a n unfiltered pale golden with a little white head and slight lacing. Aroma is light grain and thick, slightly sweet and yeasty or foggy. Quite meadly of flavors. Spice, slight cloves, apricots and the imediate aftertaste is a bit hoppy as the ABV kicks in. Barley noticeable for nearly %10. Feel is thick, smooth, plenty of carbonation, noticed mostly at the end. Odd that this doesn’t show it’self much on the initial pour. Full, complex, busy and good.

Adjust your expectations!! This is a very unusual beer and you need to be ready for it. The spicing is very intense but with a little (very little) accommodation the mature taster will love it. Not for food, not for piling up a case next to you to watch the hockey game -- but amazing taste, finish and lingering warmth. Spectacular.

Golden yellow body with a moderate white head. Floral sweet aroma. Sweetness balanced with sourness and a bit of bitterness. A cery complex beer.

A clean yellow golden color. Strong aroma, the alcohol is in there. This is a nice strong tripel with a fruitiness to it. The spices are underlying and do not overwhelm. A nice belgian style brew.

Wow! is all I can say about this beer. The aroma of this wheat beer knocks me off my feet. Wheat beers ordinarily dont have the tastiest of aromas but this one is great. The unfiltered style of this beer is visible immediately after the first pour. If you want to compare this to a mainstream beer it would be like blue moon but much better. It knocked me off my feet when i realized that this beer has 9.5% alcohol. You would not know at all! This beer is probably not the best beer I’ve had but holds a special place in my heart. The wheatyness of this beer is very apparent and other slight spices of east come out as you drink deeper and longer. I would drink a bathtub full if I wouldnt die after the first six pack!

Very nice aroma, of spices and fruit. Pleasant taste although the alcohol is apparent. Great golden color, will drink it again.
