This bottling is a wild spin on Victory's Golden Monkey, the brewery's Belgian-style tripel. A brilliant golden color, it's a strong and intense brew, leading with scents of fresh citrus, freshly baked bread, dried grass, underripe stone fruit and green apple. There's a pleasant weight and richness to the smooth palate that's lifted through the close by bright, lactic acidity. Aside for the mouthfeel, the alcohol is well-integrated and balanced, while light carbonation assists in lifting the stone-fruit and citrus flavors and carrying them through to the dry, herbal finish. It's not over-the-top sour, and is surprisingly easy to drink. Lauren Buzzeo
