Saying this beer is an excellent tripel does not do it justive. This brightly yellow, fruity refreshing beer has an amazing taste. This is quite a high level of carbonation, however, you will not get much of a head off of this beer. The sweetness is quite intense and feels great on your pallate. The alcohol level gives it that extra kick as if goes down, giving you a fun experience. I would recommend this to anyone sitting around the house on a warm day, especially those who don't have to drive anywhere.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottled 2/11/14 best by 2/11/16 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of fruit and yeast phenolics
Head white, fizzy, gone when the pour finished
Body golden, hazy; sediment in bottle
Flavor of apple, somewhat ciderish, slightly tart, and yeast phenolics; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation
I think Merry Monks is head and shoulders above Victory Golden Monkey, in general a better flavored brew. It is certainly very drinkable, with the 9.3% abv well hidden so that after quaffing a few you won’t even notice when you’re dragged to your cell. Although the appearance isn’t great (fizzy disappearing head, no lacing), the aroma, flavor, and palate more than make up. I also like the appearance of both the bottled and best by dates – they are blue against the brown bottle and extremely legible, even with a sweating bottle.
