Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy yellow with one finger of white head that lingered for a long time.

Smell: Some citrus and cloves.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Tasted like orange juice mixed with alcohol, real sour taste. Little bit of wheat and cloves.

Overall: I have had much better Tripels, I wuill not buy this one again.

Golden Monkey is an Instant favorite. Deep golden pour, lots of frothy, creamy head with significant lacing. Yeasty, malty, sweet/honey, butterscotch/caramel on the nose. Great yeasty flavor, sweetness not overpowering, but just a tad thick on the mouthfeel. Thought the finish strangely dry for the sweetness and viscosity. This was a very flavorful and well-balanced brew in my opinion, can find some bitterness but have to look hard for it. This one’s a keeper! I'm told to age it a year and try it again, but I don't have near enough discipline to pull that off.

Reviewed from notes.
