Respect the monkey is all I have to say. LOL This beer boasts an intriguing herbal aroma with hints of tropical bananna, warming alcohol lingers on the tongue lightly, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor.

Impressive brew that starts strong but recedes quickly. Lacking the complexity of its Belgian brothers but a worthy attempt at the style nonetheless.

1st beer at mellow mushroom new Albany. Pale pour with weak head. Nose is fruity and alcohol. A bit weaker in the taste. H

Victory Golden Monkey has a thin, white head, a mostly clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance, with powdery sediment throughout and larger tan chunks evident as well. Lacing is almost non-existent. Mouthfeel is medium and fairly prickly, and Victory Golden Monkey finishes semi-dry and surprisingly drinkable. RJT

About an each head. Not much of hop aroma. Crisp taste in your mouth. Very bitter taste going down. Just ok for me.

12 oz bottle thanks to Wittales. Pours golden with fluffy head. Bright fruity aroma. Taste starts lightly sweet with a short, crisp, dry, minimally bitter finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture. Overall: this was a pleasure to drink.

Great spiced tripel. As good as any tripel I’ve ever had. The 9.5% ABV is completely hidden. It is deceivingly strong

This is a nice one, and a good deal at $7 per 750 ml bottle at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido. Pours clear, dark gold with a slight white head that quickly fades, no lacing. Has a rich, fruity aroma that is earthy, bready, and has a tinge of honey, just like a classic Belgian Tripel. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, light sour, with a dry finish. As good as the best tripels coming out of Belgium. Highly recommended.

Full bodied, thick tasting beer...heavily spiced with an herbal aftertaste. Good beer, but not for me

Pale golden colour & sweet smelling. You would be easily fooled into thinking this is a Belgium Tripel, only a little sweetness may make you think it's not (I told my wife, who loves Belgium beer, that it was a Belgium & she didn't know the difference). I cannot taste the spice but the subtle Belgium yeast makes this a deeply delicious beer.
An excellently emulated beer.

"didn’t look impressive...foamed endlessly upon opening, then the centimeter thick head was gone before anyone took a sip. nice golden orange hue, though. feel-9.5%, really. Light mouthfeel and good carbonation. taste-a light fruit (melon and gummy qualities) with a surprisingly mellow amount of spice. highly drinkable for the abv. easy drinking and smooth. i was hoping for a touch more complexity. this beer can be cellared for an additional two years, though, so I’ll try again. 9/09- better on tap (3.8 as opposed to 3.4) livelier fruit sweetness and fresher."
