I thought this was very fizzy, almost tasting like pop. Like ginger ale or something. Like a light medium color, and has a nice hoppy flavor. A good beer.

Woo - intense. Sharp and yeasty, with alcohol presence. Dark golden color and cloudy. There's alot of flavor here. Appropriate to tripel style, but not really a tripel. Its more like Duvel, which is not a tripel either but more a style unto itself. And comparing Golden Monkey to Duvel - the Monkey stands up to the task quite well.

WOW! Bottom line...does Victory Brewing Company make a bad beer! The spicy flavor is soooo memorable for a Belgian style ale! I have had close to 50 Belgian and Belgian-style ales, including triples like this one. I have had close to 250 beers in my life...trust me I know good beer when I taste it!

All I can say is WOW. This beer was my 1st experience with Victory beers, and I must say what an experience. What hit me first was the beautiful spicy taste, and for a beer with such a high alcohol content, very nice. The nose on this beer and the way it feels on the palate is amazing, I feel like I can still taste it.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2005 Firm, hugely flavourful. At a yak-stunning 9.5% abv, this is one seriously huge tripel. Great complexity and some wonderfully evocative flavours - like hot apple crisp with whipped cream melting all over it.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2003 Its been a long time since I sampled my last “Golden Monkey” about two and a half years, way to long in my book. The pour a slightly blurred golden amber color, the head is modest in size, the texture frothy, the color and off white, with a fine coating of lace left behind. Nose is sweetly malt, crisp and clean, fresh as a spring day, with the start ambrosial, and loaded with malt, the top is middling in its feel. Finish has a purposeful acidity, the hops are mellow and pleasant to the palate, quite dry and long lasting aftertaste, a “Most Quaffable” beer to say the least, and I must thank “beerluvr” for this bottle,
