Bottle, caged and corked. Deep golden color, bordering on orange-amber. Thin, creamy head. The aroma gives away a definite barrel character ... woody and farm-ish. The drink is very heavy-feeling, with a thick mouthfeel, a big-time buttery, Chardonnay layer ... like super rich icing on a cupcake. (#5574, 7/8/2014) Pyrmir (6199) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
750 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden with white head. Aroma at first very buttery reminding of bearnaise sauce. Later s malty and alcoholic aroma takes over with some spice and lighter butter. Taste is similar, buttery, malty, some spice and alcohol RussianDragon (578) - - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at Mekong, Richmond. Pours a dark golden yellow with tinge of copper on glass. Frothy head fades quickly to lacing and wispy head. Aroma is soapy upfront, white wine, yeast spicy sweetness. Flavor is tripel, oak, grapes and overall sweet. Best in small quantities. Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. The nose has a sweet scent, with hints of caramel, pumpkins, bananas and sugar. It pours a darker golden colour with a small white head. The taste is equally sweet and has pumpkin and caramel as main indicators. The body is full and the taste lasts in a nice way. Overall a really good beer.

ekstedt (6946) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear deep golden, medium white head. Malty aroma with strong notes of vanilla oak. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry, low to medium bitterness. A bit cloying. GMCC2181 (1613) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle via GS. Light orange in color... poured into a snifter, decent head. Nose of sweet malts, apples, light musky grapes and some chardonnay. Taste is not as sweet as the normal monkey, light grape/chardonnay taste. Followed a light malt body and musky grapes and apples/fruit. Not a bad little brewski. Medium body, pretty easy to drink for a 9 percenter. Well done to the brewers. TychoJames (1407) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget. Äppeljuicefärgad vätska med vitt fluffigt skum. Sötknäckig doft med rejäl fatkaraktär. Fruktig smak och även här en mjuk smörkolatouch som jag ofta tycker uppstår vid fatlagringar. Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Looks pretty much like Golden Monkey, light golden color with fluffy white head. Big aromas of white fruits, big chardonnay characteristics in both the aroma and taste. It goes down easy for the ABV. i like me some Golden Monkey, but this is even better. dhunter151 (590) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 23, 2014
750ml bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Grapes, oak, Chardonnay, butter. The finish tasted off. I did not like this at all. Drain pour.
