Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into my BeerAdvocate Teku.

Appearance: dark golden hue with a little bit of haze and a finger of dark ivory foam atop. I like it, although it feels a bit dark for the style.

Smell: a bit sweet with a good, rich malt character and some good pear aromas. Just a hint of white wine character seems to come through; this is great. Really well-balanced.

Taste: good malt flavor; it's relatively sweet, but there's some balance added by the wood aging. It's a little boozy as well, which isn't inappropriate to the style. I think the wine barrel character adds an interesting dimension here, although I don't know that it makes the beer, which was already good to begin with, objectively *better*.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good level of carbonation and a really nice creaminess. I dig it!

Overall: this is a good and interesting tripel. I am glad I finally got a chance to try it.

poured from a 1pt. 9.4 fl. oz. caged and corked brown bottle 7/13/2018 bottled

Victory White Monkey poured out a slightly cloudy orange-gold in color. A generous 2-finger off-white head was produced that left behind spotty lacing on the walls of my Duvel tulip glass. The nose is of; light fruit, apples, white grapes, and sweet from the candy sugar. The sweet taste follows the nose with the added flavors of; pears, lemons, honey, spice and a little peppery. The mouth feel is high-medium bodied and a little Chardonnay like finish.

White Monkey is very flavorful and drinkable. The Ale reminds me very much like Chardonnay wine...I'll have another thank you!

This is pretty much Golden Monkey with an added element of white wine and a hint of oak with a slightly sour finish. Fairly dry, not quite as sweet as Golden Monkey.

From the bottle, it pours a nice golden amber color with a nice head that eventually diminishes to a ring. In the nose, it is soft, perhaps a winey scent? In the mouth, it is slightly sour, malty and slightly spicy.
