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.

Tasted both this and Duvel last night. This seemed less fizzy, great mouthfeel, almost creamy, and nice sharp flavors. I think its the better of the two beers.

I thought this was very fizzy, almost tasting like pop. Like ginger ale or something. Like a light medium color, and has a nice hoppy flavor. A good beer.

Woo - intense. Sharp and yeasty, with alcohol presence. Dark golden color and cloudy. Theres alot of flavor here. Appropriate to tripel style, but not really a tripel. Its more like Duvel, which is not a tripel either but more a style unto itself. And comparing Golden Monkey to Duvel - the Monkey stands up to the task quite well.

Too sweet for a tripel, but not bad

WOW! Bottom line...does Victory Brewing Company make a bad beer! The spicy flavor is soooo memorable for a Belgian style ale! I have had close to 50 Belgian and Belgian-style ales, including triples like this one. I have had close to 250 beers in my life...trust me I know good beer when I taste it!
