12oz bottle:
A very good stab at this style but IMHO it falls short compared to the Belgian classics! This beer poured a golden colour with a good head that was not as crazy as some of its belgian counterparts. This smelled of sugar, candy, alcohol, and many other things...like any good Belgian style pale should! This tasted nice, but it was a little phenolic and alcoholic. The alcohol was not as well hidden as it is in other beers of this type. This had a very alcoholic mouthfeel as well and a nice warming effect to boot. A very good attempt to nail this style and very good for the price. A very drinkable Belgian style brew!
cheers victory!

750ml Bottle:
Well it happend, I got an infected bottle of this wonderful Victory ale. It looked and smelled like it should but it tasted skunky, overly sour, tart and nasty. Down the drain it went. I'd like to try a good 750 of this!

I split this bottle with a friend and I was glad. The monkey is deceptively strong as you cannot taste the alcohol. The color is a cloudy golden yellow with a white head. The smell is yeasty and spicy. The taste was fruity, yeasty, spicy and delicious. I would have drank the whole bottle but I am glad I didn't given the high ABV. This is a solid beer from Victory and if you like the style, give it a shot.
