Out of bottle....Golden monkey is a very nice tripel hop ale....brewed with amazing spice with a light apperence but with a full body hoppy taste....also notes of wood, nuts, and herbs....nice beer!

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."

It has that Triple aroma so thats a good start. Really good taste. Just like a triple should be. Nice sweet banana, spicy, peppery taste. Really good and for 9.5 you can’t even tell. Really good stuff.

355ml Bottle from Brewdog Online Store (£3.80):
Another really good beer from Victory Brewing here, probably the best one of the five I have now tried of theirs and it’s not as if they’ve been feeding me poor beers up to this point. This one is incredibly well balanced and manages to hide the high alcohol very well with only a touch coming through towards the end of the taste. This one is excellent from start to finish and up there with the best that Belgium has to offer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Citrusy and spicy aroma, peppery with notes of ginger and coriander. Minor banana notes, strong presence of white wine. Dry and spicy taste, very (white) vinous, with a phenolic-alcoholic finish balancing the initial sweetness. Very good.
