look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Sam Adams glass and developed a nice white head which had some good lacing. Lacing and head quickly dissipated. Color was straw and cloudy. Aroma was very strong in the alcohol department with hints of grain and malt. Taste was also strong with the alcohol and hints of citrus and malt, fairly sweet overall. Mouthfeel was full and somewhat creamy.

Serving type: bottle

I poured the Monkey into a tulip glass. There was plentiful foam and a strong golden coloring. The look definitely matches the name.

The smell is a good example of a belgian blonde/golden. I like the belgian yeastiness going on in the nose.

The flavor is good, but just unbalanced. I like the banana in there. This tastes like a decent dubbel (don't know why it is called a trippel).

This is a decent belgian. I would order it on tap as a decent option.
