Victory Brewing Co – Golden & Sour Monkey

We’re featuring two monkeys from Pennsylvania this month, brought to us by Victory Brewing Company.

First up, is Golden Monkey, a Belgian-style Triple. Victory tries to stay true to the style, describing Golden Monkey as having a

“Nose…loaded with Belgian yeast character. Banana, clove, isoamyl. Body is equally fruity with light earthy hop character.”

For this particular beer, Victory recommends trying not to pour out the yeast sediment from the bottle.

Next up, we have Sour Monkey, a Sour Brett Triple, providing a tart twist to the original Golden Monkey. The brewer describes this monkey:

“Aroma is very varied with lemon, sour, and mild brettanomyces notes. Flavor follows with a tart acidity. Not dry as it finishes with a malty grain flavor.

Sour Monkey stands up among the aficionados at Beer Advocate, currently sitting with over a 4 out of 5 rating.
