elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Pours a dark gold, with an ever so slight cloudiness. Head is slight, white, and foamy--dissipates quickly with a little lacing. Aroma is a bit restrained at first, but becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Complex, some fruits (apricot, apple) and spice, with the aroma of alcohol discernible. Taste is a mix of fruit (again apple and apricot) and spice at first, but quickly giving way to alcohol with a mildly grassy, hoppy character at the end. Becomes slightly more tolerable as the beer warms. Mouthfeel is lively--a slightly sharp, fizzy carbonation that can get in the way of flavor a bit, but is pleasant in it’s own right. Overall, it’s a good beer and faiy faithful to the Belgian tripel style. That said, I’d say the promising flavor up front is a bit undone by an overly bitter aftertaste. I should point out that this is an extremely potent beer, but it drinks rather quickly, so watch out. Good, worthy even, but not quite in the same league with authentic Belgian tripels.

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.

It is indeed golden with a big white head. The flavor is slightly hoppy with citrus and sweetness. Nice brew.
