Cloudy gold color, very true belgian aromas. Sweet flavor and heavy mouthfeel give you an idea of the alcohol content but, you dont get that high abv taste. Beer has a slightly tart finish which makes it easy to drink.

Orange beer with a hint of grapes on the nose...Wheat, herb, and fruit flavors help reduce the strong alcohol content. Very smooth beer with a kick....Cant drink more than 2 but a good start.

Smells of fruit, wheat, alcohol, hops. Tastes the same, has a little bit of a tingle or bite to it. Pours orange and hides the high ABV nicely. Wouldnt drink all the time but a nice treat.

Wow. Wow Wowey. This monkey was Goldenly deliciously. As my friend BizNiz said, "when angels orgasm, golden monkey comes oozing out. " Is it that good? Yes it is and even better. Thats all I have to say about that. Medium head, Golden Monkey color. Alcohol sweetens the beer but it is not too predominant.

Poured with no head. Hazy orange coloured. Fruits and spices in the aroma. Not as "spiced" as I had expected in the taste, which is dominated by fruit and some alcohol. Slightly carbonated, quite smooth with a medium mouthfeel.

Tap, great orangy color, and excellent fruity taste that compliments the very high ABV. Good to the last drop, even a little warm.

Pours out a cloudy golden color with a small sized head. It has a nice fruity aroma with notes of yeast. It has a nice smooth body for having such a high ABV. It has a good rather complex flavor that is much more balanced than many other tripels Ive had with notes of fruit and yeast with a tad of hop.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2010 What a surprise this beer was. The taste was immpeccable and the experience gravatating. Golden monkey made me throughlly enjoy every sip and also added a realm of satisfaction to my whole evening. Truly a beer to pursue. Wow, revisted almost six years later, and this brew still brings forth a glorious revelation of enjoyment. The pour is thin and hay like but the taste is balance between a soft pepper to a medium citrus clove spice. Quite enjoyabe.

Bottled on 2/13/04 Pours a murky golden color with light carbonation and a white head. Plenty of chunks floating around. Lace is slippery and head retention low. Aroma of fruity esters, bread and light aroma hop. Taste has a fruity start, tart middle and a light hop finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and effervescent with a lingering hop presence. A nice warming quality, relatively smooth, however there seems to be nothing exceptional about this tripel.

On tap. Hazy golden yellow color. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is malty with a dry finish. Pretty good, but not my favorite tripple. I would like to see a little more complexity of flavors replace the sweetness.
