I like this, but the alcohol is a little much. Nice yeast profile and maltiness. The hops are present in the beginning and then fade away to the alcohol bitterness and yeastiness.

Okay, drinkable, not my favorite. I would buy another one in the right situation.

Nice orange and yellow color. Has a weird smell but I like it. Smells like a hefeweizen. Nice and smooth. Spicy and good. Not my normal style but I like it.

Wife's Review: "More mild than I expected. I like it, but probably wouldn't have more than one."

Thank You Victory Brewing Company for creating this smooth golden concoction with a kick! NOT to sound like a total "LUSH" but it is nice to drink 2 or 3 bottles of Golden Monkey and still get the same "BUZZ" as you get from 6 or 7 regular beers. How did they get a beer with this much Alcohol (9.50% ABV) to taste this good?
