3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12OZ bottle, the color is a hazy golden orange. I smell yeast and hops, I really did not get any banana as others. The taste is somewhat too sweet, I also taste clove, hops, and malt. But itís very balance.

Great smell that is slightly citrusy and sweet...appearance is light and dull but has cool floaties...taste isnt quite as good as the smell leads you to think...little too heavy on spices

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good show, hazy yellow with a nice head on top. Not too much in the aroma, some yeast and some beer. Amazing flavors though, lots of fun yeasty byproducts, strong american hops. Lots of spiciness but Iím not sure just what. Somewhat slimy of a mouthfeel, and not too boozy for its 9.5 abv.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured into a Pint glass Standard pour. Two finger frothy white head that settled down at a relaxed pace. Pours a beautiful copper, almost light orange. Very little opacity. Lively carbonation. Smells malty, and strongly of banana. The taste is sweet, with just a hint of bitterness at the end that lingers. Sugary, banana. Fuller bodied. The alcohol is remarkably well hidden. A very enjoyable beer, and a steal at the price point, this will definitely not be my last Victory Golden Monkey.

Bubbly, cloudy, gold...finely whipped white head.
Light, fruity, yeasty aroma.
Spiced banana, clove.
Very light and airy feel for the ABV.
Only a hint of alcohol presence or bitter.

Poured a lovely golden color with a heavy fruit nose. Very typical of a tripel but with a stronger banana than I am used to. Very nice end to a great time at Victory!!

Very tropical and bandanna. Not wht I want in a triple the bandanna should be more subtle. Golden in appearance. Skip it

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
At a Victory tasting event on tap at Qbrick... the day after an Epic event at Tadgís. It pours a crystal clear gold. A nice fruity belgian style ale but I think I preferred Epicís Brainless Belgian...
