Draft at Metropolitan. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like tart citrus, grapefruit hops, light funk, cracker malt, and yeast. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like cracker malt, yeast, and faint citrus.

12oz bottle. Pours hazy orange-ish gold with a small white head. Aroma is moderately sour; grass, lemon, lactic, and wheat. Taste is lightly tart; lemon, vanilla, wheat, clove, citrus, apple, and yeast. Somewhat bitter finish. Sweet as much, if not more than, it is sour. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel.

On tap, Beergeek Praha: some lacing, light color of amber, better on the tongue than in the nose. Nice sour, hits the right notes. Great feel on the tongue, nice lingering feel... enjoyable.

Bottle. Whaaaa ...? I've never rated this? Golden Monkey is one of my faves, and Sour Monkey is one of the wife's. A solid twist on the GM basis, this is a great, tart, example of the style to introduce folks into sours. Super sweet, puckering .. that's how it goes. (#6799, 10/9/2017)

This is called a sour, brett fermented tripel - a sour version of Victory's Golden Monkey. The sour aspect dominates easily, but I do taste a bit of the Monkey underneath. Lots of bright, lemony lactic acid, and an undercurrent of nutty brett. This could use a little more sweetness imo but sour fans should jump right in. The high abv is completely submerged. The musky, sweet and tart floral aroma began to grow on me. And serving it at a little higher temperature brings out a good, complex side. I like their Tart 10, a similar brew, a little more but this is good too.

The sour almost covers up the belgian yeast flavor that I have never enjoyed. Green apple and lemon dominate the frontal assault before the honey yeast comes thu. Its sweet, its sour, it finishes slighty bitter. I dont love it. I dont hate it.

oobawa (1659) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2017
Solid reconfiguration of the Monkey, massively sour but still offering up the bright Belgian wheaty sweetness of the original. Hints of clove and vanilla way underneath the blistering citric sourness, and the dry floral finish becomes surprisingly bitter and grassy. Tons of yeast in the fade. Sparkly texture gives no hint of the ABV. Nice beer.
