Hands down the most disgusting beer I've ever tasted. Pours a neon lemon-lime gatorade yellow. Smells like bubble gum. Overwhelmingly strong. Tastes like bubble gum, pine needles, and wood. Way too strongly hopped - not sure if fits the style, but this beer is just gross. Unpalatable even. Read the other reviews to see if it's something you'd like. Mine is biased in the numbers, but I couldn't even finish this one.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Pours a totally clear golden color. A generous two finger head that is thick and foamy with good retention. Leaves some nice lacing and has active carbonation.

S- Citrusy aroma with lemon and orange and also hints of green apple and banana. A little bit of an early hop aroma as well.

T- Sweet and citrusy with a hop balance. Initial aftertaste is banana. Also hot a hint of the alcohol.

M- Medium-heavy body with a good amount of carbonation. Not the smoothest tripel in my opinion because the alcohol is not covered very well.

O- Not a huge fan of this beer mostly because I keep tasting banana, and I don't like banana. I should have known it was called "Golden Monkey" for a reason. Not a bad brew, but not something I would have again because of my banana aversion. I would recommend it to anyone who likes banana flavors.
