The golden monkey. Have heard mixed things about it. Here goes:

A: Very uninspiring. Pours a clear yellow (far clearer than most tripels - was this not bottle-conditioned or something) with a medium-sized head that disappears immediately. Little lacing, especially for a tripel. Not good. 2/5

S: Smell makes up for the appearance somewhat. Clove, banana, white pepper, various spices (extremely spicy beer), etc. However, the bready smell is somewhat lacking. I'm beginning to think that the beer is not bottle-conditioned despite being a tripel. 3.5/5.0

T: Taste is OK, but come on, Allagash, Unibroue and Weyerbacher all make much better tripels. No breadiness, but has banana, candied sugar, clove, coriander and an array of spices. Good on the spices, bad on the breadiness. Really should do a better job bottle-conditioning this beer. 3.25/5.00

M: Just OK. Again, lack of breadiness makes this tripel lacking. 3.5/5.0

O: Just meh. Really disappointing for its style. 3.25/5.00
