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.

Had this on tap at the Ginger Man in NYC. Was an OK beer, except that it just did not taste like a "Strong Belgian" to me. Was far too "American" to be considered in that class.

Herbal, candy aromas, albeit a bit dilute. Clear golden with small flimsy head. Not much in the flavor but slight belgian yeast character with apples, alcohol somewhat pronounced. Belgians would probably laugh at it. Not enough body.

빅토리 브루잉 - 골든 멍키 9.5% ABV 향신료가 첨가된 트리플 에일이라곤 하는데 특별히 스파이스의 노트를 발견하진 못했다. 오히려 달달한 9.5도의 맥주라 좀 놀랐던 기억만.룸메이& 베이컨을 꽂은 탓인가 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Padron4KM (690) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2015
12 oz bottle. Hazy dark golden, two finger fluffy white head, spotty lace.
Aroma is fruity, apple, pear, banana, with a dose of sweet bready malt, and herbal, and floral hops.
Flavor starts sweet and fruity banana that leads to some herbal spice, and a medium length bitter finish.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2015
Pours gold with a large head. Nose shows sweet banana notes, spicy phenols, doughy wheat and confectionery notes. Flavours likewise seem to be a cross between a hefe and a tripel. Banana, wheat, booze. Carbonation seems a bit excessive.
