For about a year, if I wasn't drinking hopdevil, I was was almost definately drinking a Monkey. This is the beer that really turned me on to Abbey Tripels. Cloudy golden body with a spicy vanilla nose. Vanilla and cinnamon both present in the taste along with just a little bit of banana and the belgian yeasts. Always a staple in my fridge.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2005 Aroma is spice driven with the appearance of classic translucent Tripel with observable spices floating throughout. A mild sweet malt taste is the initial assault to the taste followed by the second wave of spices corriander and cloves. After a few sips the alchohol content becomes noticable but not overbearing. A fine fine beer, especially on hot summer days.

Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2004
UPDATED: APR 16, 2005 Smalll dead head on tap of liquid goldness. Yeasty, spicy and citrus flavors all over this. Tasted like a Belgian IPA. Sweet without being too over the top. 9.5% masked very nicely.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Light orange color-very small white head--I expected more of a lacey large Belgian head. Light yeasty aroma which is sweet and slightly spicey. Flavor is similar, light palate, and fuity. I can taste coriander? Taste is slightly watery, and I can't tell that there is any more than 4-5% abv. Weak for a tripel and for Victory whom I generally respect highly.

rafalski (6) - annandale, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2004 does not count
golden ale with tons of herbal aroma. very firm and mouthfull body, with a hint of spices. alcohol a bit too forward tasting but i think that just adds to the character of this abbey ale. great taste with malty and spicy hops. lingering fruit on the finish.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Bottle pours a hazy golden color with a small short lived head and short lived lace sheets. The aroma is slightly yeasty and slightly sour. The flavor is of alcohol, sweet malt, sort of spicy, slightly yeasty, and of light hops. The body is fairly rich. Overall, I prefer many of the same style, but this is a good effort worthy of a good score.

SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2004 The head came and went quickly on this clear yellow beer. Yeasty aroma with citrus and spice in there too. Sweetly acidic, this light bodied brew was softly carbonated with a finish that was a little drier. Slight alcohol as well.

3.8
Frank (4255) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Golden with a thick haze of sediment and almost no head. Spicy floral/honey aroma. Soft, mild carbonation. Slightly tart with a vinous note accentuated by a mild alcohol presence. Notes of banana, pear, and lemon. Smooth, rich mouthfeel. A top-notch tripel.

3.4
badgerben (5372) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Pours a solid golden color with little head. Watch the yeast at the bottom of the bottle! Good aroma of hops and spice, same for the taste. I was expecting something pretty high and mighty from a Victory tripel, but it didn't quite live up to what I thought it'd be. Still good.

3.8
beerluvindave (194) - Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Very strong triple ale with a nice subtle hint of some spices. Good beer but I wouldn't drink too many at 9.5%
