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.

Overall my favorite. I haven’t been drinking commercial craft beers for very long and don’t have much to compare it to. However, it amazes me how lively this beer is and I will continue to enjoy it. (almost 300 calories a bottle, NOT light beer).

lownote (493) - Austin, Alabama, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Malty Belgian yeast aroma. Very clear, small head. Light spice flavor, sweet. Borderline cloying. Thickish body, surprisingly. Maybe thats from carbonation still in the beer because it didnt escape a lot in the pour. This is good to very good.

Golden orange beer with a big white foam. Quite sour aroma, I got a hint of gooseberry actually! Taste is excellent. Sweet, sour, lots of citrus, yeast, just a hint of earthiness. Very nice texture. Medium bodied and rich yet fresh and refreshing. Excellent balance.

BeerRenter76 (719) - Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Originally rated on 9/22/08. Golden monkey poured a deep, cloudy yellow body and a thick white cap. Aroma of banana and lemon. Mouthfeel was good, a little creamy but with a slight bite from the hops. Flavors of banana, clove and citrus with a slight peppery bite, alcohol was noticeable but at 9.5% wasnt overwhelming. Overall G.M.was a pretty decent beer best described as a triple with some wit characteristics.

Sparf (218) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2016
Söt doft av kemisk banan, bubbeltuggummi, örter, svagt av jäst och koriander. Fenomenalt skum: kompakt, luftigt och lätt med mycket lång halveringstid. Perfekta lämningar. Vackert ljus färg som drar åt grönt. Aning tunn i smaken men exceptionellt välbalanserad. Maltdominerad palett med aningen karamelliserade toner och en saftig fruktighet som lättar upp kompositionen. Päron, aprikos, persika och så en värmande alkohol. Lätt kropp och en tillbakahållen kolsyra. Eftersmaken är trevligt jästig med mineralaktig klang som kontrast till frukten.

Golden color. Fruity aromas, spices and yeast. Taste is heavily dominated by the yeast, some fruits, spice, citrus and alcohol. Slight bitter finish.

Pours a clear amber, cream head. Aroma is a solid yeast with light coriander and citrus. Spicy yeast taste consistent with the style. Clean mouthfeel and yeast aftertaste.
