Gold color and very clear in the glass. It has a bubbly, foamy head, high carbonation. Aroma has a strong yeastiness, like bread dough. Tasted honey and ginger, very sweet. A little citrus and bitterness at the end. Medium to full body. I think it gets better with each sip.

Overall a nice spicy Belgian wheat. A little heavy on the tongue at the first sip but got better along the way. Little bit of a banana feel to it, but no overwhelming fruit flavor to it. I would put this on my "do it again" list.

For an American Belgium Triple it is one of the better ones. With an ABV of 9.5 the alcohol taste is minimal (almost).

It starts out sweet but finishes dry. I do not get any banana flavoring as some do but with the spices I do get a raisin flovor.

Got the golden monkey today and it was great but not as great as sour monkey by Vic Brew. It pours a solid white head with nice golden amber colour. The aroma is heavily wheat and spice with at touch of banana which is always awesome. The taste is full fledged banana with spices and wheat. Overall a great Vic Brew .
