Victory Golden Monkey (8/10)

Victory Brewing Company's Golden Monkey is a Belgian style Tripel, one of my favorite beer styles. It pours into the glass a rich amber color, with virtually no head.

The aroma delivers a traditional tripel spiciness. The flavor offers hints of banana and spice.  Overall, I really enjoyed it and look forward to ordering it again.

Beer Advocate gives it an average to good rating, and didn't seem to enjoy it as much as I did.

Although I sampled this beer at The Winking Lizard Tavern on Bethel, I've also seen it available for purchase at Cost Plus World Market and occasionally at other retailers.

ABV: 9.5%
IBU: 25
My rating: 8/10
