Rich golden colour, big white head. Taste is sweet, spicy, floral and just a hint of sour to mask the alcohol, which has almost no presence. Definately a winner. braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Pale gold color with active head, herbal aroma and firm, thick mouthfeel. Taste is pretty normal for a tripel, although a bit more restrained than some belgians. Malt, yeast, alcohol, fruit, and spice are all present. What it lacks in strong flavor it makes up for in drinkability and refreshment value. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 30, 2005
Cloudy gold with a white head. Aroma: yeast, citrus, spices, clove, orange peel. This has a thick yeasty body that is loaded with spices. Has some light fruit flavors: orange, lemon, and apple that compliment the thick yeastiness. Lingering spicey finish. liquidcrack (45) - Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2005
bottle. Nice. gold color, white head. very well balanced flavor and aroma. alcohol was not overpowering. a good drinking beer. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2005
Gold in colour with a large fluffy white head. Mild dry herbal hop aroma with some spicy notes. Flavour is pretty much a standard tripel. Suprisingly dry though. Not bad.

hazy gold with a large white head. nice citrus spice aroma. nice medium bodied mouthfell with a wealth of flavors, among them citrus, white pepper, coriander, cloves, and a touch of banana. Well done. tobi98ab (32) - Taste of Beer, Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 6, 2005
[bottled] Nice and golden look, a bit unclear, with a nice full head. Citrus hits you in aroma and the first impression in the mouth. Pleasure all the way down, full and soft body, with a well balanced sweetness. This one reminded me of Gulden Draak - A wolf in sheeps clothes!! Great! skisangelo (60) - Collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2005
Poured a cloudy yellow with a white head. It had a spicey citrus and hints of alcohol and honey. Tasted a bit like it smelled but the alcohol was very well hidden. Overall a good beer. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Tap at Brewery-Slightly cloudy gold with thin head. Smells of spices and a touch of banana. Taste is much of the same. This one is a bit of an oddball tripel in that there is a combination of ideas. Reminiscent of Chimay Blanche (bad) and Dulle Teve (good). The Chimay comes through in the peppery compliment resulting from the alcohol, while the fruity breads of Dulle Teve comes through. A pretty good interpretation of the style, however, could use better alcohol cover. swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Golden Monkey is one of my personal favorites from Victory. It has a cloudy straw appearance, a honey aroma with hints of citrus and a smooth taste with some vague pepper.
