3.04/5  rDev n/a
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

pours a clear yellow-orange with a thin white head, no carbonation, and no lacing.

smell is of malt, fruit, yeast, and a sweetness in the back.

taste is on the flat side, fruit, nuts, malt, and a little banana, ends flat, and a little dry.

overall a okay beer, needs some carbonation to liven it up. (302 characters)

22oz bomber from 99 Bottles in Federal Way, Wash.

First released in March 2009; this bottle is part of the December 2009 release.

Good Monkey is a Belgian-style golden ale. Big ripe banana flavor, with hints of spices. Nicely warming on a chilly spring eve.

A great deal at just over $5/bomber.

22 oz. bottle from West Richland Beer and Wine, poured into the workhorse Piraat tulip, 3.6.10.

One finger light white head, almost instantaneous dissipation, no lacing at all. Mango orange clear body, a few small trails of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. The nose features a curacaoish orange citrusy initial hit, but the caradamon/pepper notes are overwhelmed by the cloyingly sweet body. Overall the taste is very sweet. no noticeable bitterness, the hops are obscured by the sweetness. Decent carbonation mouthfeel with a pretty dry finish, close to style. A bit high in ABV for style to want to drink more than one. Overall, too much sweetish bubblegum, not enough balance. Pass. (703 characters)
