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.

Bottle. Pours dark golden with a thick white head that lingered well. Aroma is yeast, sweet malts, dried summer fruits (apricot and pear) and spice. Flavor is sweet, spicey and a hint of bitterness in the finish. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Nice belgian triple!

Wow. This is a great beer. Wonderful spicey (peppery) aroma with hints of malt. This is only to be suprpassed by the bold but complex flavors contained in each sip. A palate that is wonderul. Buttery, smooth with a wonderful mouthfeel. A wonderful brew. My only problem with this brew is that it is not available in my state. Thank you Boston for having this beer for me.

This is a great beer. It pours well. It has a nice dark amber color. The head is more of a light cream. The taste is very full. The spices are noticeable but not overwhelming. The ETOH is strong buy warming. I had this beer in a bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2003
This like its namesake, pours a very dark golden color with a huge egg white head. The aroma is big and spicy. The taste like the aroma, is extremely spicy, but not enough to be annoying, a great mouthfeel with some very lively carbonation. A very nice trippel, that is slightly acidic, tart, and lightly peppery. I thought is was very unique.

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.
