went down very smoothly. Tasty bready aroma. Hazy poor with a pleasant lacing. Bready aroma follows through into flavour with some banana and clove notes. Syrupy taste but very drinkable.

I finally have reached the 500 rating plateau! I wanted to save a beer to rate at this point that Ive had in the past but never rated. The first time I sampled Victory Golden Monkey, I lived in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. It was one of the first "craft" beers I had ever sampled back in 2006. I hated it! It had tons of crap floating in it, which now I know must have been a VERY OLD sample. At 9.5% alcohol, well you know......drum roll please, LOL. I purchased this twelve ounce bottle at Thirstys Quick Stop, East Market Street, York, PA. If you are in our area and looking for a really nice place to pick up fresh imports, crafts or shit beer, I highly recommend these folks! I poured this one kinda cocky, into my favorite glass, my Troegs imprinted shaker (tumbler). Thats the brewery that changed my mind about crafts back in 2007, home brewed then for 5 years but just didnt have the time anymore. Alright, the review - well, Im glad I poured it next to my kitchen sink, this sucker gushed over and Im sure I lost at least an ounce of it! Its near clear golden, micro suspended particles, billowy white head, there is some lace here and retains nicely. Its aroma, bubblegum, clove, anise and grass. The taste is moderately sour, slightly sweet with not much bitterness. On a medium body, its highly carbonated with a mouth feel I can only describe as crisp. It finished rather dry. This may be one of Victorys BEST brews. Im glad I saved this one for number 500! At this time I would like to thank a very special friend from my place of employment, you know who you are!

Really good beer. 1 step below La Fin Du Monde. Has a pretty spicy flavor but not over bearing. One of the best Belgium Triples youll find and widely available. If you find it in a bottle, you will enjoy it more then the can. Could use a little more carbonation.

Muggus69 (2192) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2016
355mL can from Booze Bud. Canned 28/JAN/16 Pours a golden body, head drops away kinda quickly. Aroma somewhat subdued - light caramels, bread crust malts, spices of pepper, clove, nutmeg, touch of vanilla, with a ripe stonefruit & faint booziness. Carbonation a touch low, especially for a Belgian, still has a nice creaminess about it, quite rich counterbalanced by spiciness & boozy dryness. More luscious on the body - sweet pale malts, ripe pale fruits, woody savoury spice notes, drying boozy finish. Satisfying.

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours golden yellow with a small white head. Spicy, yet sweet, aroma of clove, caramel and sweet malts. Taste, too, is a combination of sweetness and spices: creamy caramel, clove, coriander, biscuits and sweet malts. Medium to full bodied, very creamy intense mouthfeel, mild carbonation, average hoppiness balancing quite nicely. Perhaps a tiny bit too sweet, yet delicious, strong Belge Ale.

Bottle. Clear yellow. Minimal white head. Aroma is weak with fruit, grain, honey. Taste has honey, pine, malt. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice aftertaste. Easy. A bit too sweet. I prefer the actual trappist beers.

Mainuh_man (291) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2016
11 Oz tap. Pours clear golden orange with a white head that dissipates quickly and fast running legs. Aroma of coriander, bubblegum and cotton candy. Flavor is quite sweet, with coriander, oats, alcohol, and mellow, tarry hops (poperinge?). Full body with an oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation and cloying sugars. Overall, one of the better American triples Ive had, could def be Belgian.
