4.76/5  rDev +23.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle into bulbous stemmed wine glass.

A: Poured somewhat gently, yields a scant 1/4 finger of white head which disappears quickly. Shows as an amber gold, certainly a touch darker than the Golden Monkey.

S: The first sniff is pure Golden Monkey, but then you're hit with pear, white peach, white grape, oak and a touch of vanilla. Very, very enticing.

T: What a interesting taste this brew provides! First you get a hit of Golden Monkey-like Belgian sweetness, what seems to be a hoppy bitterness but eventually reveals itself to be the oak, lightly woody and spicy, then another splash of sweet Belgian frutiness that changes back to a spicy, white grape and oak flavor that lingers. Delicious!

M: Perhaps a tad thin for how full the flavor is, but even with the seemingly low carbonation it has a definite spumante mouthfeel with a zingy, tingly bubble feel.

O: A smashing success and I only can hope that this becomes at the very least a seasonal brew from Victory. Victory for your taste buds indeed!

Great Mother of Drunken Monkeys!
I rolled into ye olde swill shoppe tonight looking for the liter bottle of Golden Monkey and the beer boy showed me this here White Monkey. He said a bunch of words that I translated into "Golden Monkey but better". He was right. Split the bottle with my pops and we're both pleasantly pleased. If you lke the Golden Monkey check this out!
