As if the Monkey weren't awesome enough, they come out with this! What a wonderful beer. All the complex spice flavors of Golden Monkey already make it extra-dimensional. The addition of oak and Chardonnay overtones make White Monkey shift you into a universe only comprehended by string theory physicists.

Aromas of flora, crab apple, golden raisins, yeast, golden earth, and a mild nuttiness. Clear golden-orange with a lasting, white head. Dry, very fruity, with flavors of peach, banana, and coconut. Light-medium body, spicy, and finishes with lingering fruit and floral notes.

Butterscotch with a chardonnay finish. A little sweeter than I might wish for, but still reasonable. This is a tripel I definitely will buy again, it may be the best beer from Victory I have tried.

Pours translucent golden with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of banana, clove, white wine, oak and vanilla. Alcohol burn of a fresh golden monkey has gone away. Flavor of banana, clove, peppery notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Very oaky/white wine. Well done.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazed pale golden color with a soft, subtle white sudsy head. Aroma is fantastically complex, combining white wine and Belgian yeast; sweet grape-fruity wine character, honey and spice with a touch of alcohol. Taste is soft and sweet; starts with a fruity chardonnay character and a malty undertone, sweet and spiced throughout with some woody and alcohol notes in the finish. A great take on the Monkey!

Pours clear and golden thin white foamy head, mild lacing. Has an aroma of white wine, slight funk, and yeast. Slight sting like it’s cousin golden monkey from the alcohol. No lingering burn. Palate evens out to dry fruit and coriander and spice. No notable vanilla flavors.

Poured into Trappist glass. Golden with a finger of white head. Smells like white wine, fruity, and yeast. Taste very vinous! I get also the yeast. Nice and light and a great amount of carbonation. This stuff is great for wine drinkers!

Victory never disappoints and this is no exception to that rule. It’s in a bomber. It has a malty smell. It is real crisp and clear. The taste, well you either get it or you don’t. And I get it. It has a barley wine taste, but washes down like a sour. I enjoyed it the more I thought about. I like what they were reaching for. Try it to try it. Definitely not for everyone.

Look: cloudy shade of gold, 1 finger white head. Smell: Fruity Belgian yeast notes, deep grape musk, honey, some oak is detectable. Taste: Nice blend between oak and fruity yeast. mild floral, vanilla, faint coconut, honey, hint of banana, alcohol is well covered, nice dry bittersweet finish. Feel: Medium-light body, par carbonation. Overall: I’m sorry to see this Monkey leave. The flavor profile is strong but the mouth feel makes it easy to savor. Victory is great at making quality brews, and this one should be added to their portfolio. Recommended.
