Some times it's good to have dessert first and then again and again and again... The Monkey is fun! I first had this at the Standard Tap in Philadelphia. It was the perfect beer to try on my first visit to the Tap. I'd like to think that it's better on tap then from a bottle but my tap experience was long ago. The monkey poured cloudy and appeared to have a honey color. The head built quickly but also faded quickly. It was easy enough to stir more foam by swirling the glass. The flavor is fruity and sweet which is why I think it's perfect to have for dessert. (a habit that developed recently) This beer commands your attention because if you let your guard down, the Monkey will have its way with you...Monkey...it's just fun to say!
