Evil Monkey Belgian Tripel

This beer is very high gravity, alcohol, and body, and should be approached with caution.  Unlike many other beers with similar gravity, tripels are relatively light in color, resembling many light amber pale-ales.

Unlike the pale ales that it resembles, this beer really packs a punch.  If you drink too many of them you may start seeing Evil Monkeys coming out of your closet.
