Well this was a pleasant surprise. It's definitely not the most sour beer that I've had but that's a good thing, since it allows the base of Golden Monkey to shine through. Overall this is a tasty sour/tripel I highly recommend picking up.

sour monkey is a sour brett tripel. well...not much tripel, not much brett. it's almost like a gose. i can't say i love it. i do like golden monkey a lot. i'm assuming it's the golden monkey base. i did like it. i wish the brett came through more.
